Get Ready with Me! | Soft Sultry Eyes

Todays  tutorial was completely spur of the moment, and kinda of a good representation of how much I like simple eyes. I wanted to share an eye look that wasn't loaded with crazy glitter or complicated steps. Not everyone wants to wear an extreme cat eye liner or dark vamp lip. So todays tutorial is a hang out with me and see how "simple" I tend to go when I'm wanting to do a little more to my eyes without going over board. I hope you guys enjoy this!

Just wanted to wish everyone an amazing Thanksgiving week! I know that I am so thankful for all my followers and the gorgeous people who come and take time out of their day to see whats going on over on my blog. I know I've said this before and I will keep saying it, you guys make all this possible and totally worth it! Even when I don't feel like filming, or have to stay up late I do it because I love you!!! I'm thankful for a supportive hubby who encourages me to follow my blogging and hair stylist dreams and helps me so much whenever he can. I'm thankful for everything that I have, the amazing people in my life, my family, the food in my belly, the roof over my head, the small things, the big things, and the love from my Heavenly Father!!! I pray you a blessed week my friends!

Vamp in All Black

When winter comes, the vampire returns. Although this vamp loves daylight. Taking a few simple black items can become a chic outfit that turns into a powerhouse. I feel like I could take on the world in this outfit. Apply a dark lipstick and I'm invincible...not really but I'd like to pretend! My shoes are probably my favorite part of todays look. I just got these uber-tall booties from the UK a few days ago after spending plenty of time drooling over them. I recommend everyone to have a tall pair of booties to give yourself a little pep in your dark vampire step ;)!

Murad Skin Care Flagship Store Launch | L.A.

November 5th, 2014 marked the opening of Dr. Murads first Murad Skin Care flagship store in the heart of Los Angeles. Dr. Murad treats his skin care line as only one part to a three faceted approach. He believes in Inclusive health which means; through looking better, living better, and feeling better you'll obtain a lifestyle that builds a "younger you!" I applaud Dr. Murad for going past the outward appearance and reaching into what really counts! You can have a pretty face but without a smart lifestyle that all will go to waste. 

I was invited to attend the opening party for the store. As I walked in the 1500sq ft. skin care store front I was so excited to see how much detail and information could be found there. Its not just a place to go buy products, its a see-touch-feel-learn experience that treats and prescribes the best system for your skin. Armed with interactive touch screen systems, you can take a quick quiz about your skin to see what products would be recommended for your concerns. 

Now if you want to take it a step further, see what the Youth Cam can analyze on the surface of your skin as well as what your skin will experience 5-10 years down the road... you're in for a big surprise. I placed my face for the camera to see and found out that later on I could be met with problems like dark spots and fine lines if not treated. What might come as a scare to some people comes as a enlightening insight to know that I can treat my skin so I won't have to worry about that down the road. While addressing your current situation this allows us to turn back the wheel of time and get our future skin the best treatment to combat the aging process. It even gives you a print out of the picture it took with your skin concerns, list of recommended products, and 3 pictures with what to expect down the road. I'm blown away by how Dr. Murad put together the beauty of science and skin to make this incredible machine and system!

I owe it all to this gorgeous lady, Mckenzie. She is my Media Associate and the person who has helped me from the very beginning of my skin care experience with Murad. Mckenzie is such a sweet person who cares about you, your skin, and your well being which is a direct representation of the company and how thoughtful and amazing their company is! So happy to have been apart of the opening of Murad's first storefront!

Leather + Cotton

One of my favorite ways to bring an outfit together is by taking something edgy and contrasting it with something girly. Like a soft girly dress and a badass leather jacket. We all have a bit of soft and hard, this is a great way to balance them both. Due to our ever-changing weather this is a great way to bring in your summer clothes to become part of your winter collection. Honestly its hard for me to put either away because of how layer-able clothing can be! Btw...I probably have to go get this dress in cream too because I love it SO much!

Daenerys Targaryen Rope Braids | G.O.T. Series

In the second video to my Game Of Thrones (G.O.T.) series I'm showing you how to easily recreate a style worn by Daenerys herself. This is one of the main hairstyles I have come across while looking them up via the internet. 

I think this is such a cute way to wear your hair whether playing with dragons or going to school. In her actual hair style the french rope braid sits much higher, but I wanted to do something that would be easy to recreate and not hard to hold. But if you have mastered braiding on your own all means hold it up higher like shown!

Casual Road Trip Sunday

My husband and I took a spontaneous road trip to the gravel fire trails in the San Bernardino National Forrest this Sunday. Unfortunately for us, Southern California has been experiencing an endless summer so outerwear like this is still not needed. But for the sake of sharing what I would like to have is my comfy outfit! My style is something easy and comfortable, which means that I love to wear chunky sweaters and soft jeggings. Something that anyone can jazz up with a cool street jacket and scarf for the perfect seasonal look. Whats your go-to comfy clothing item?

Game Of Thrones | Hair Series | DAENERYS TARGARYEN

Today I'm introducing my new series featuring hair styles from The Game Of Thrones! I've not watched the series myself and had no idea how gorgeous the actresses hair was styled. I can't believe I'm just finding out about this now, especially because of my obsession with braids! Some of these styles will be replicas of how to get an exact look, and others like todays first tutorial of the series will be an inspired look! 

When I styled this look I felt like I should be wearing a gorgeous flowing gown and have gold bracelets all over my arms and feet. It makes you feel like your part of a fantasy world. As my first hair style I wanted to introduce something that can be worn for any occasion. I hope you enjoy this double dutch laced braid! Please tag me in any G.O.T. hairstyles, use the hashtag #GOThairseries on Instagram, that you would like me to make a tutorial for in this series! Love you my mermaids!

Monthly Favorites videos are something I look forward too! I love discovering what girls have actually been using all month. Unfortunately last month was the first time I've skipped a month because the whole recording was out of focus. So I skipped the painful frustration and just decided to add it into my October Favorites!

The past two month have been so wonderful and full of new things. I finally got my chair in the salon and am now officially working on clients every week, and am building up my cliental. Talk about keeping busy! I feel like I have three jobs now! Along with that my husband and I adopted a new puppy in October, Halo, and was have been potty training and trying to keep up with her high spirited energy! My husband and I also just celebrated our 4 year anniversary on October 29th, very glad to share this journey with such an amazing man!!!

 I am so excited to welcome in the colder months with all the holiday joy! I look forward to sweaters, boots, hot chocolate, Thanksgiving, camping, vampy anything, soup, my crock pot, and much more!
