With Warmer days comes Wedding Season!❤ {Get Ready with Me!}

Sunday, 17 May 2015

Hello loves❤

It was a beautiful sunny day and Michael and I were eagerly anticipating celebrating the Wedding of our good friends Simon and Jamie! In case you didn't put two and two together..Michael is the "other half" I so frequently refer to:) also, that dashing man pictured above haha!

When it comes to being a guest at a wedding, is it just me but I am always scrambling to figure out what the heck to wear! {You would think it would be easy since I have an entire room dedicated to my closet}but nope..I get frantic - a whole different kind of level of frantic - Big thanks to Michael for still loving me throughout those times!

After deciding what to wear, the next major thing to figure out is Hair & Makeup. Now since this was a rather warm day, I had many things to take into account.

❤My hair couldn't be down because long hair with the heat isn't a good fit - let's be honest
❤My dress couldn't be too short or be white or cream{hello it's a wedding}
❤My makeup had to be something that would stay on my face all day & be effortless

Take a peek at what look I decided to rock! & no I didn't wear that white top to the wedding..but girl was it ever hard to pick out something from my closet that wasn't!! As you can see, I decided to go for a pale peachy colored printed High-low maxi dress that I've had for years from Forever21. It was the perfect amount of class yet still keeping it young and fun!

It was a gorgeous wedding and we were so thankful to be apart of it. We danced all night long with our friends and truly made it a night to remember. The Bride was glowing in her dress as her eyes met her groom waiting at the end of the aisle and we could not be happier that they found each other.

        Thank you to Simon & Jamie for adding that Dash of Something Pretty to our day❤

A little bit of effortless beauty with my {Prom Inspired Makeup look}❤

Tuesday, 5 May 2015

Hello loves❤

I recently shot a fun new video for my Youtube Channel Stylelights and what is so great about it, is that it is my very FIRST Collab! I paired up with my beautiful friend Krissy Grotez to film a {Prom Inspired Makeup look} for those who are getting ready to hit that dance floor hard & break out those stunning ensembles❤

Now as mentioned in my video, it has been quite a long time since I myself have gone to Prom..and yes, I may have shared the epic outfit choice my date decided to show up in
{trust me ladies - it was a good one!} 

Prom is a night most of us will never forget..& sometimes...one that may never be remembered {don't act like you don't know what I mean haha} but one thing about prom always stays the same - every girl picks out the most beautiful gown and flaunts the most beautiful makeup!

For my {Prom Inspired Makeup look} I decided to create a Rose colored smokey eye with a hint of deep purple for more definition. Sounds fancy huh?! - c'mon hunny it's PROM! Did ya think I was gonna create a subtle look?! Now of course, for Prom you not only gotta get your makeup on point but your hair needs a little luvin as well! For that, I created a low braided side bun, with wispy curls and a small cross over side braid - it's so easy to recreate and just adds that little bit of effortless beauty to your look. {If you want to see a tutorial feel free to let me know❤}

I hope you all enjoy the tutorial and don't forget to stop by Krissy's Channel to take a peek at her's!
Be sure to show her some love and Subscribe!

To all my lovely girls getting ready to celebrate one last night as seniors, I hope you have a wonderful evening and create lifelong memories. Let your beauty shine and own the night!
 After this, you embark on many more amazing adventures,
 {just be sure to always add your own Dash of something pretty to whatever comes next❤}
