Ginny’s engagement party

Hey ladies. 
I had my cousin’s engagement party this weekend, and let me just tell you how upset I am that my camera decided to delete the majority of my pics?? So here is all we have…
Wasn’t Gin’s dress so pretty? It is a LaRoque. Mine however… was the ever fabulous- Forever 21. 😉 As were the earrings. (Thanks roomie!) 
Ginny came over pre  engagey party so I could fix her hair. Unfortch- the camera deleted the good pics so all we have are these from my phone which look horrid. So sorry girls, but you can get the idea right? 

I’ve seriously been running a salon out of my bedroom it seems. HA. Here is the roomies hair before we went out Friday. It’s not fair how much hair she has. It’s just rude. 😉
So, also, I have some exciting news that I have been hiding from you guys. My website just isn’t ready yet because I’ve been supah bizzay and haven’t been able to finish it up. BUT I am excited to tell you that I AM starting to freelance my hair and makeup services here in Lexington! YAYY! Here is a sneak peak at what has been going on…

EEEK! Excited to get this up and running and share my wizardly hair knowledge with all you Lexington ladies!! More to come on all things Simply Flawless 😉

xoxoxo

    I was just thinking of my comment in my head halfway through your post thinking "you should totally quit your day job and just do hair for weddings and whatnot- you'd make a killing" and then BAM you are doing it anyway! Congrats that is so exciting. I'd certainly pay you to do my hair if I lived in Lexington. Beautiful!

  6. Oh please please have it up by September. This little bebe needs you to do her 21st birthday hair!!

    Follow me here.

    Someday you will have a show on Bravo TV, cosponsored by tresemme and skinny girl.

    On one of those occasions you will get the brilliant idea of invading the woods of waaaaay northern back country Minnesota where you take a girl in flannel with crazy heavy flat hair and turn her all southern big hair.

    It will be a hit. And that girl will be me.

  48. Adriana says:

    Omgosh, I am so going to visit Lexington one day to get my hair did by you:-) Congrats on your new endeavor!

  49. Brooke says:

    AHH! Now if only KY was, you know, closer to TX. But congrats, woman!! =D

    Okay total side note, gotta know – is that real tan or spray? I'm a translucent woman over here and completely jealous. I'm hoping it's something I can buy, too, cuz lord knows this girl isn't turning any shade but red if I go outside.

  54. You both look gorgeous at the party! Love your dresses.
