What I’ve been up to, May 2013

I know I say this every post, but I can’t believe that it’s the end of May!  It really makes me reflect on how far I’ve come in one short year.  Last year at this time, I was working at my full time office job and attending esthetics school, dreaming of a career in the cosmetics industry.  Things are quite different in 2013! :)


I started off the month in Bennett Springs, finishing up my family vacation.  It’s hard to believe that the next day after this it was SNOWING!  Missouri weather is crazy.


I had a few weddings this month!  I love being a part of someone’s special day! {booking inquiries}


My “little” cousin graduated from high school!  I’m so proud of him!  In other news, dayum I feel old.


I FELL.  HARD.  Want to hear the story?

So I was leaving a wedding, dragging my giant pink train case on one side and my chair on the other side of me.  I was wearing 6 inch wedges (as I normally do) and getting ready to cross a busy street downtown.  A car stopped and motioned for me to cross, I waved my hand to thank him and began to scurry across the 4 lane street.  Mid way, I go down.  And I mean DOWN.  Shoes and sunglasses fly off, my case tips over, and my chair hit the ground with a loud BAM.  I struggled for what seemed like 30 minutes to get my shoes back on and lift my case up (thankful that it didn’t pop open).  A few cars stopped to see if I was okay.  I just sort of nodded and said, “I’m fine” even though I was mortified.  Once I got up and got myself together, a young teenage boy stopped to see if I was okay.  I said I was fine, and as he was rolling up his window he said, “you still look good though.”  Well thanks, dude, I think?


There’s just something about froyo that makes me so happy inside.  Nothing says summer like Yogurtini!


I made these glitter sunnies that I’m obsessed with.  I get compliments on them all the time! {tutorial}


My foot bath has been my BFF lately.  I spend a lot of time on my feet (and most days in heels) so this is my salvation.  I use some old skincare that I don’t use anymore to give them some extra pampering! {more about foot bath}


I applied to get my Kansas license!  That way I’ll be licensed in two states (Kansas City is in KS and MO).


A special moment that I captured with a bride and one of her bridesmaids.  Her shoes were TO DIE.

May has been busy, I’ve been working a lot on blog stuff and MUA stuff.  But I tell myself all the time, you gotta do what yo gotta do!

Be brave.  Take risks.  Nothing can substitute experience.

Drink water. Wear SPF.
