Fifteen & Fab!

Happy “Shoesday” Tuesday! Today is a VERY special day! My best friend’s little sister (practically my little sister) is FIFTEEN! A few weeks ago I posted photos from the first leg of this shoot with Kryssa. I decided to wait till today to post these special photos of her. What can be more magical than wearing a poofy, glittery dress in Disney World? Nothing. (PS: To steal Kryssa’s shoe swag, scroll down to

My Morning with Morphe

Merry Makeup/Cyber Monday! I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving break! I spent mine in LA with family (slowly slipping out of my food coma). While I was there, I had the pleasure of visiting the Morphe Brushes store in Burbank. I didn’t know that I would be stepping into brush heaven! Marie, one of the store attendants was kind enough to guide me along the store walls full of brushes from

Home of the Brave

Happy Veterans Day! As promised, here’s the last part of our “Fallidays” shoot in Auburn. Subconsciously, we chose a dark red lip and camo jacket just in time for Veterans Day! Our shoot wouldn’t have been complete without this adorable red barn house that’s on campus. Make sure to check below the photos for links to Kristy’s outfit & makeup! I’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all

“Fallidays” in Alabama

Hey ya’ll! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I spent mine in Auburn, Alabama visiting my super fabulous friends Kristy & Brittany. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so I was really excited to get the full experience of chilly weather and leaves changing! From the weather to the fashion, it’s a completely different world up there. Kristy showed me the ins and outs of fashion in Auburn! We took

Dia de los Muertos

Happy #SelfieSunday! Today I decided to switch up my selfie with a little bit of sugar skull makeup! I felt inspired being that today is the last day of Dia de Los Muertos, a Mexican holiday celebrated from October 31st to November 2nd. Please excuse the small imperfections, I did this rather quickly and didn’t have much time to edit. I’ve listed all the products I used below the photos. Enjoy!

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice!

Happy Halloween! I came up with this Beetlejuice look with a little help from Pinterest and of course Alana Dawn! She posted a photo a few weeks ago and I became obsessed. Hope you enjoy these photos and have a safe Halloween! // Face: Ben Nye Skeleton Kit // Lashes: MAC // Lips: MAC & Ben Nye Eyeliner // XO

Hollywood Dreams

Happy Monday! Last weekend I had the honor of shooting photos of a very special birthday girl…in Disney World! It was definitely one of the best experiences ever! If I haven’t mentioned it before, for the majority of my photo shoots, I am also the makeup artist, hair stylist and “outfit advice giver” (I am in no way a stylist LOL). We spent our first day in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Both looks
