Bridal Portraits + Portrait Tips

Let me start by saying I ended up getting bridal portraits twice. There were two reasons for this, number one being I wanted pictures in the church I went to when I was younger even though we chose not to get married there. That church is very special to my heart, the people who gather in that church every Sunday helped shape me into who I am today. I had to have portraits there. Reason number two is the fake butt. Yes, I got underwear with butt cushions. I don’t have a butt y’all, so I thought this was a fabulous idea. This grand idea of mine ended up being a disaster. It was so bad, it literally ruined the portraits. Here’s a tip for all of y’all: ditch the butt cushioned panties.  On a serious note, you don’t want to look like a totally different person on your wedding day, you want your body to look like it normally does.

Wedding Registry Guide and Checklist

After Mike and I got engaged one of the first things I thought about was what I was going to put on our wedding registry. We chose not to live together before we got married so we didn’t have anything we needed, especially when it came to things for our kitchen. I’m not going to lie, creating a registry was overwhelming and quite stressful at times. At first, it seems like it’s going to be loads of fun, who doesn’t want to walk around a store scanning things for people to buy you? It may have been more fun if I were scanning shoes or dresses, but no, I was scanning kitchen supplies… Booring

Office / Beauty Room Inspiration

It’s always been my dream to have a home office/beauty room area. I would love to have a room that I can do whatever I want with without worrying about it being too “girly” for Mike. It’s my dream to have one room in the house that’s totally mine. We have two spare bedrooms in our home that are filled with boxes that we haven’t unpacked yet, so my plan is to take one of those and turn it into my own little space.

I always sit on the counter and put my feet in the sink while I get ready (weird, I know) and Mike can’t stand it! He actually said, “I can’t wait until you have somewhere you can sit and do your makeup other than the bathroom sink”. I’m not going to lie, I am a little messy in the bathroom, I can’t help it I don’t always have time to clean up after myself! I think Mike will be excited when I get this room finished, too.

The first things I plan on buying are two desks, and a 21.5″ Apple iMac. When it comes to desks, I really like the X-base and high gloss look. I found THIS office desk that would be perfect for my workspace, and I’m on the hunt for a smaller, but similar looking desk for my vanity area. I know I want a plain acrylic chair for the vanity desk and a nice side chair for my work desk. I’m really struggling with what chair I want for my desk. If yall have any ideas let me know!

My everyday hair style | curls

I am trying really hard to grow my hair out, and it’s in that super weird mid-length stage. It makes me feel like I don’t really have a “style”, especially when it is straight, which is why I typically curl it! My hair is also super limp and thin, so I feel like curling it gives it more volume,  and of course I love that. Curling it is fast, simple, and easy. That’s exactly how I like to do things!
