I got to see baby Aurah today at our family dinner.

She is sooooo cute! And, she's so stinkin tiny!


Today was another long day! So many many people to make beautiful! Our first wedding was for Ashley Glassman. Seriously one of the nicest brides EVER. Congrats! It was also so fun because all of our weddings today I got to work with Brittney. I love that girl. We always get to catch up on the family drama and then talk fashion, makeup......all that other girlie stuff.

Ok. Today was the longest day ever! I was working on a Verizon Commercial with Prince....pretty cool but I started at 5:30 a.m. and didn't finish until 6:30 p.m. And, we shot outside for 7 hours by the pool. Can you picture it? I'm in a black T shirt, jeans, and my white skin. Please. That is why I look absolutely hidious next to the featured model. Anyway, she was so nice and easy to do makeup on. She just had natural beauty. So, when the commercial is released and you see it on television, please feel some sympathy for my long hot day. Thank you.

ok. So as if I didn't have enough things on my list to do. I thought of a little project that turned into a bigger project and so on and so on. But, it does look SO cute. Thanks to my dad for hanging all of these so perfectly! You're awesome! I guess I was bit by the creative bug.

Someone just told me my house looked like a dollhouse. Not sure if I was supposed to take that as a compliment or not. Anybody? I was looking at a new couch - maybe not so funky. I do love love love color though. Any suggestions?


Here are some before and afters from my brides getting married this weekend! It's definitely wedding season. We have over 12 people to make up this Saturday! CRAZY!

This is dedicated to Ambers blog name! I had to do makeup for Matthew Fox and while everyone was having many "LOST" questions; I was having my own "Party of Five" reunion. I loved Charlie!

People Magazine

Well, I have now worked for People Magazine four times! It is so crazy to see my name in that magazine. This last article was on a 13 yr old girl named Heather Wilder who was an abused foster child. She now is adopted by the most incredible lady who is giving her everything she deserves. Heather writes books for other foster children who are going through tough times. She is an absolutely amazing girl. She was named most influential teen helping her community and has won a ton of awards. She also has been named Miss February for Build A Bear as she donates bears to homeless children. It was so fun to do hair and makeup for someone other than a high maintenance celebrity. She definitely left an imprint on my heart!
