This is Maria & I at our friend’s wedding in February. We had our make up done at the LM counter in Chicago…..I must admit, it looks amazing! Look at her eyes!

 

Not only will you get to see ME, (haha) there will be some fabulous treats for you as well.  LM will have one of their premier makeup artists there if you need a little make-over (who doesn’t want a makeover, i ask?), AND there is a little giftie for those of you who come and mention you follow my blog!  Oh – and if you spend over $125, there’s another gift.   You can’t NOT come.

Here are some of my favorite Anniversary sale deals from Laura Mercier:

The ultimate smoky eye kit.  Seriously.  Come see me on Friday and learn the 'how-to' with these essentials.  Your eyes will look just as good as Maria's!

Summer Brights

There are so many things to love about summer … and one of them is all of the bright colors!

And even better is wearing them all together for a ‘bright’ statement.

If you haven’t heard – Kohl’s did an ah-mazing collaboration with Milly for DesignNation – making some of our favorite collections available accessible and affordable for all!  We picked up a few favorites from Milly and they have definitely been summer staples (all on SALE right now for under $20)!

Pairing this cute T-shirt with a dressier skirt, some fun heels, top it off with a FUN bag … this makes for the perfect summer ensemble. Day or Night.

Peach Discover Your Perfect Tour Houston

Houston, we DID it!

As many of you know, we just had the Houston Perfect Tour this past week and it was a HUGE success! Thank you to all of you for coming out – it could not have been sweeter.

Taking place at the Westing Galleria, we pampered ourselves all day long and introduce the Peach line to our new and existing customers. They fell in love.  Champagne, manicures, massages, jewelry shopping, skin consultations – could you ask for anything more? Oh wait – you entered an adorable cabana to get perfect measured into the perfect fit for a bra!

A few snapshots from the day…

Weddington Way Bridesmaid Dress Challenge

We love a challenge.  So when we decided to enter the Weddington Way Bridesmaid Dress Challenge, we chose a color that not all brides might choose for their bridesmaids:  white.

The thing is, an all white bridal party would be gorgeous.  Sleek, chic, and white is a color that pretty much flatters everyone.  We chose this Alfred Sung number below, in ‘snow white.’  And, at $139, it’s affordable!  The other reasons we love it?  A structured bodice, a sweetheart neckline, and POCKETS!  What else might a girl want?

How to accessorize this dress?  We’ve got your answers:

If you are looking for the perfect bridesmaid dress, you MUST head to Weddington Way.  They make it so easy!  Here’s the link:

Saturday Night Casual

 Sometimes when you’re going out for just a casual night, it makes the outfit that much more complicated.  Questions roll around in my head……How casual should I be?  But how dressy can I get away with?  If I get ‘too fashion-y’ will I offend?  Look silly?  Should I just throw on a plaid shirt, skinnies and booties and call it a day?

 Yes, these are first world problems, BUT let me be the person to help you with them.  This past Saturday my husband and I went out with some new friends.  We had a great dinner, and this outfit worked well for the weather and the occasion.
