Meet Everyone! This week’s get to know you question is: What was your most embarrassing hair style?

 {Host} Kim - from 2 just B you: Oh no...My worst hair style was when I was a kid and thought I could cut my own hair. I cut bangs, and they were completely uneven. Worst part...Picture Day at school was the next day. And my parents didn't want to fix my hair cut (they said something about me learning a lesson?). So, NO, we did NOT buy those photos!

{Host} Laurie - from Created By Laurie: Whenever I get bored I usually will go to a salon and tell the stylist they can do what they think would look good on me. It’s nice to see a different look, usually one I wouldn’t have thought of. This one guy went completely opposite and ending up coloring my hair super dark and cut it to my chin. I know it’s a risk, but hair can be recolored and grows back. I just ended up looking goth for a few days till I colored it again!

 {Co Host} Sandy – from Savard Studios: My most embarrassing hairstyle was from the 80’s big hair days. Permed poodle hair with high poufy bangs. The goal was, how high could you get your bangs? Of course it wasn’t embarrassing at the time, because everyone was doing that. What were we thinking?

 {Featured Guest} Shelly – from Company Forty-Two: My most embarrassing hair style is when I cut it all off. I am not kidding. I was having a bad hair day and was sick of dealing with it so I took a pair of scissors and hacked it off. When I went to the salon for them to fix it the only thing they could do is shave it! So one can only image what curly hair looks like growing back in...I looked like a CHIA PET. It took 3 years for it to grow out! I won’t be doing that again ;-)

practice makes perfect

Rehearsal dinners are probably the most over-looked event in the wedding process.  There are a lot of frazzled nerves the night before the wedding so it is no wonder brides and grooms might keep the rehearsal dinner simple and sweet.  But rehearsal dinners need a little love too!  This is the last time you will gather with your family and friends as a single girl or gal and it is a perfect time to thank all of the special people who have come together to make your wedding memorable. One good way to do this is to use photos of family and friends in your decor (like in a couple of pics above.)  So have some fun and reward yourself for all of the sweat and tears you have poured into your wedding!

Happy Planning!

the hero blogger

So as you know I just underwent a brand re-design and so I had to give my blog a face-lift to match my beautiful branding.  Well let's just say that all things "tech-y" leaves me confused and very very angry!  So I am so grateful that I had the help of one smart little cookie.  Crystal from The Angelorian Tradition helped me every step of the way and made this process a little more bearable and therefore I did not have to stick my head in the oven.  

Our conversations went a little something like this:
Shelly:  Can you help me create a Pinterest button for my photos
Crystal: Sure, it is simple. All you have to do is {mumbo jumbo} {confusing crap} {foreign language}
Shelly: CRYSTAL!  I DON'T GET IT! {whine like a baby} {beg for help} {stopping feet}
Crystal: Ummm why don't you just let me do it.
Shelly: Well if you insist... 

So this is a big thank you to my blogging hero Crystal!!!!  Thank You!!!!

the new co. 42!

 Introducing the new Company Forty Two!!!  I am absolutely in love with my new branding. Angela from Saffron Avenue was able to take my vision and create a beautiful brand.  We stuck with a calming color palette and kept the design simple.  The new logo is a perfect blend between rustic and modern design.  Angela created the overall logo, twitter page, facebook page, etsy banner, business cards and packaging materials.

I had such a great experience working with Angela.  If you are looking for a branding upgrade I would highly recommend using Saffron Avenue.

Happy Planning!
