Big Rich Lace

This has been such a crazy week but guess what! Tomorrow is Friday!! We have been pushing through the holiday season, preparing for events, planning next year AND continuing to cameo in more television shows. Yesterday, I sat in while the new show Big Rich Atlanta (airing in March on Style Network) was being filmed at one of Lace Cosmetics boutique locations. I can't wait to see the episode air and check out our cameo. This is our third show in 4 months. Not too shabby :)

A Photo Booth, A Jewelry Designer And A Makeup Artist

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  Mine was SO FUN!!  We really had a blast at our photo booth event at Demure Boutique on Saturday.  We had amazing clients, many friends stopped by and good times with the lovely ladies of Demure.  Here are a few snapshots from the event.

What Is In My Closet This Fall?

Fall is finally here I could not be more excited.  There are several reasons why fall is my hands down favorite season and one of those reasons is because of the clothes!  I wanted to shop around at inexpensive stores near my home and find a few fashion staples that I can use for many different outfits and occasions without breaking the bank.  Below, I am showcasing a few of the purchases that I made along with their retailers that can all be found nationwide or online.  I didn't spend of $50 for a single piece!

Boyfriend Blazer.  Every girl should have several blazers in her closet.  They can be dressed up or down and are always an easy "go-to".  I like the "boyfriend" style a lot because it feels very relaxed and comfortable.  On days when I am running out the door to meet a client or go to the boutiques, I know that I can throw this on and look and feel great!

Billowing Blouse.  I love these large blouses because they go with so many looks.  They are beautiful when tucked in and always look classic and timeless.  You can wear them with slacks and a blazer during the day or you can wear them with a tight mini skirt and pumps to rule the night while still looking sexy and sophisticated.

Sequin Blazer Jacket.  This was one of my favorite purchases.  It is beyond cute.  For a day look, I am going to wear this with a simple fitted top and trouser jeans.  For a night look, I will wear it with a strapless black bandage dress.  This is definitely a top that will get a lot of attention and people will be talking about the back slit for sure!  How cute?! P.S. I have seen Christina Aguilera wear a similar blazer TWICE this season on The Voice!

Statement Dress.  I la-la-la-LOVE this dress.  This is a FAB dress that I cannot wait to wear.  When I tried it on, I knew that it would be great for networking events and mixers yet still great for daytime.  It has the exposed back but with the higher neck and long sleeves, it still has a sophisticated feel.  This is definitely a dress that I will wear with confidence...and stilettos :)

Accessorize!  I am pumping up all of my accessories so that they can show my personality and make a statement.  I wanted pieces that I can wear with a thousand other outfits.  I have also made a point to purchase many different colors and patterns opposed to past years when I have stayed more in the simple blacks and grays for fall/winter.

Rings!! Tend or no trend, I am all about rings this season!

Weekend Of Makeup

Happy Monday :)

I hope you all had an amazing weekend.  Mine was fantastic but it went by SO fast!  Here is a little photo diary of the chaos.

Over the weekend I had SEVERAL bridal trial runs.  It was madness in my office between scheduling weddings, trial runs, face charts, contracts, deposits.... needless to say, a spread sheet was born.

I worked in Demure Boutique where I sell Lace Cosmetics and met so many fabulous clients.  I also did a little outfit scouting...and by that I mean I tried on every outfit in the store.

Sunday I had a 6am call time for the Atlanta Hawks Cheerleaders photo shoot.  3 makeup artists and 28 cheerleaders.  My brushes were on fire popping out one face after another.  I had a blast though, met so many awesome and talented women and got to work once again in the W Hotel in Downtown Atlanta.

After a crazy busy weekend, I came home and snuggled up with this lovely lady.  We snoozed and rested up for the week to come.

Life is good.
