Beauty & the Blush BRAID LOUNGE at Neiman Marcus Willow Bend

27 Sep

SO much crazy fun last night at the CUSP fall event at Neiman Marcus Willow Bend. Yours Truly here set up shop at the Beauty & the Blush Braid Lounge and gave party-goers mid-fete, braided updates to their ‘do’s! For three hours straight we did side braids, tiny braids, big braids, buns with braids, rocker chic braids, boho braids … you name it, it got braided last night! There was a rad live band, fashion show presented by Courtney Kerr, and lots of sassy new fall frocks to shop. We had the best time …. can’t wait to do it again!

Here’s a look at some of the action (taken with my iPhone!)

Wed: Nicole’s Big Day at the Dallas Arboretum and Stoneleigh Hotel

You may remember Nicole, my fun-loving, adventure-seeking bride, from her fierce underwater bridal portrait session featured here a few months ago! Today she’s showing off her soft, romantic makeup and pretty updo from her gorgeous wedding ceremony at the Arboretum and reception at the Stoneleigh!
