Tuesday, 7 April 2015

Hello loves❤

Today was a special was the day I announced to the YouTube world where and what I've been doing for X amount of months! Of course my loyal {a Dash of Something Pretty}fans obviously got the inside scoop first!

Clearly because you guys are my favorite.

Just kidding I love you all oodles & oodles❤

But I finally unveiled the secret of becoming a {Certified Lash Technician} & {Brow & Wax Stylist}
Naturally, my amazing Subscribers serenaded me with nothing but positive words & excitement.
Which just made me melt- THIS is why I do what I do

Aside from my gushing moment, I decided to shoot a {Natural Spring Makeup look} for you all. As you are definitely aware, where I live, Spring hasn't quite made it's's snowing & I'm currently in a crop top freezing my buns off trying to film a "Spring" look..don't worry. I'm questioning my life choices too.

Nevertheless, the show must go on! Spring looks are honestly the most fun to film -why?- because you get to:

{1.} Bring out your most vibrant colors in makeup & clothing
{2.} Can get away with having a {Fresh face} even if it really doesn't require putting much of anything on
{3.} You get to prance around in floral everything..but really..go hard.

Today I decided to show you one of the effortless Natural Spring looks I like to rock during the warmer days. This look is so simple to recreate and really doesn't need much of anything at all. What I try to do for all of my tutorials is to use products that can easily be substituted. I don't believe in having to always spend ridiculous amounts of money on high end products at stores like Sephora or Mac - don't get me wrong I do have a few- but for the most part, you'd be amazed at what you can find in the drugstore that is extremely comparable! To be honest, most of my makeup products ARE from the drugstore because {A}If I'm going to film tutorials, I may as well get products that you all can easily pick up without breaking the bank, and {B} well, I don't like breaking MY bank.

With that said, check out my tutorial above and feel free to substitute as we go!
 It's all about creating your perfect vision for what looks good on YOU! 
So, I hearby grant you permission to make this look your OWN Dash of something Pretty❤ 

Cheers to New Adventures❤ {Lashes & Waxing & Brows Oh my!}

Hello again loves

It's been a while since my last post, but for good reason! In case the title didn't tip you off, I have been embarking on a New Adventure! No, it may not be to the Land of OZ like my dearest Judy Garland but it's pretty amazing nevertheless.

As you are all aware, my passion is within the Beauty Industry - this is most certainly not a secret! The Beauty world is constantly evolving. There is always something new to learn and that is precisely what I love about it. You are continuously given the opportunity to keep growing & perfecting your craft. After countless hours and sleepless nights {mainly from the "Oh my god..Is this actually happening" thoughts, I am proud to say that I have been training my bum off working towards a pretty huge goal of mine.

In about a weeks time, I will officially be a{Certified Lash Technician} & a {Brow & Wax Stylist}❤

I cannot gush enough how excited I am to finally be done my training and move forward FULL FORCE with what will be a new career of mine! It's crazy to look back at my very first post here on
a Dash of Something Pretty and simply see the title {New Year, New Chances, Same Dreams}. When I first started this Blog, I did it because it was always a dream of mine - to FINALLY create my very own blog featuring everything & anything that makes me happy. Everything that I have done in my life all started with a simple dream, yes I know that is over the top corny but seriously, it all started with goals. At the beginning of this year, I took a moment to sit down and make a list of everything I hoped to accomplish for 2015. On that exact list, a few of the main things I wrote were:

❤ Create my own Blog featuring anything I am passionate about
❤Start living a life free of negativity - get rid of everything that does not make you better as a person
❤Pursue a Career that you utterly L o v e
❤Take time to Breathe - & be OK with it

What I love about creating lists is that it is all about the visual! If everyday you can see what goals you have set for yourself and what you expect out of your life, it is so much easier to slowly check them off once you have conquered each and every one of them. I can proudly say that for these particular goals of mine - I have happily checked them all off! I knew this year, was a year for change. I needed to conquer each of my goals in order for me to in a sense see the light at the end of the tunnel haha {for a while it was quite a fog} But I am in such a better place in my life that the fog has finally lifted! {totally just said out loud "Praise the lord" in the most southern gospel accent }

This Blog has allowed me to share all parts of my life with my readers just as much as my subscribers on my YT Channel Stylelights. All of you truly get the best of me and more importantly bring out the best in me. You each have given me so much joy in the fact that you simply love and support all that I am and everything that I do so with that said, I think I owe it to you to share this incredible journey with you!

Take a peek at some of the work I have created thus far for my clients❤

Guess I really am adding my own Dash of Something Pretty❤
Cheers to New Adventures {Lashes & Waxing & Brows Oh My!}
