My new favorite hairstyle in 30 seconds.

On those days I absolutely do NOT feel like messing with my hair, I love to throw it up in a chic clean bun. I've worn this look to work as well as on the weekends.



Gisele of course made the look fabulous in The Devil Wears Prada




This look has also made its' way onto the runways:


Mess it up like Whitney Port for a look that's effortlessly chic

I'm getting married!

So, after all this time... (over a year) my fiancé and I have decided to walk the plank. Um, I mean... get married. We're makin' it official :) So we just figured this out about 2 weeks ago and the planning is already in motion!

We are getting married April 30, 2011

My aunt has so graciously opened her ranch house to us for a venue! She has a huge house on 300 acres out in East Texas so we're having it in her "backyard." We'll rent a tent and some white chairs and have us a nice lil' outdoor wedding!

Our colors are "lapis" and ivory... as seen here:


I'm so excited and can't wait to share all my planning with you :)

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara Review - Not good!


I only bought this mascara because it was on sale at the time. I was really excited about trying it and had high hopes (especially since it's by Revlon). Unfortunately, I'm a little bit more than disappointed by my results.

Number 1: Since I started using this mascara, I've noticed that I've been losing a lot of lashes. I especially noticed this on the days I would wear this mascara. While washing my face they would simply just come out! No, I didn't lose all of my lashes but I've lost wayyyyyyy more than normal so I'm done using this particular mascara!

Number 2: Recently, I've noticed that I've had some kind of reaction/breakout/rash around parts of my eye. I thought it was strange but didn't think it was connected to the mascara. My fiancé pointed out to me today that my eye had this reaction shortly after I started using this mascara.

Number 3: As for performance, this mascara is not all that wonderful. I've noticed that even after I apply multiple coats, it almost looks like I'm barely wearing mascara! As for holding curl... nope. This mascara really does nothing for your lashes, even momentarily.


Basically, I do not recommend this mascara and as soon as I'm done with this post... I'm trashing it. This is just my personal experience and I wanted to share it with you. Who knows, maybe it'll work for you! I'd recommend researching other reviews before purchasing.
