Sunday I participated in my first bridal show-The Bellisima Bride Bridal Show at the Hyatt in Valencia. Since this was my first, I didn't know what to expect but I knew that it would be a chance for me to expose my company to a lot of excited brides. It was so fun to meet all the bride to be! My business was well received and I'm excited about all the connections I made. Check out my setup and a few pictures from the day!

Special thanks to my wonderful husband for running out to Kinko's at midnight to get my sign printed! I couldn't have done it without him!
I raffled off a free makeover and consultation!
Thanks to my friend Tiffany for connecting me with the show through her job J&M Entertainment!

Pictures of My Weekend

This weekend was full of errands in preparation for my first bridal show-The Bellisima Bride Bridal Show in Valencia. Although I had a lot of things to accomplish in a short period of time I still managed to have some fun along the way.

 My best friend kept me company while I was driving around picking up supplies and we stole a chance to get a mani/pedi. I tried a new color by Essie called Turquoise & Caicos. Love it!

A glimpse of my Bridal Show display! (more to come)

After the show I had a late lunch at the mall and snagged a couple necklaces at Forever 21!
A little bling for $10.80!
This adorable elephant for $6.40!

A bridal show post will be up soon!

Bridal Makeup: Sonia Gutierrez

I had the pleasure of meeting Sonia Gutierrez when my good friends over at Digishots Photography referred me to her. Nate & Samantha Hines are the husband and wife team that own Digishots. They have over 20 years of experience photographing weddings. It is always a pleasure to work with them - Nate is a riot! I'm so excited to share the beautiful photos  they took of Sonya! She has a wonderful and sincere spirit that radiates through her smile.

Love that smile!

  • Benefits: enhances the life of eyeshadow without creasing, hence the name "smudge proof"
  • Versatility: works well with all types of shadows - creams & powders

Pictures of My Weekend

Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. I had a fabulous time! Check out some photos that will give you a glimpse into the fun time I had.

It's always wonderful to spend Saturday morning dolling up a gorgeous girl whose anticipating her wedding. That's exactly what I did Saturday and it was a blast! Stay tuned for the professional photos taken by the fabulous Gloria Mesa!

  My lovely client looked stunning in her dress!

Then in the evening my husband and I had dinner in Old Town Pasadena. After dinner we walked around, ate dessert and checked out some of the shops.

My yummy dinner of halibut piccata at Russell's!

For dessert I had a delicious coconut & lime vanilla cupcake from Dots!

We stumbled upon this guy while looking around, pretty cool huh!

After church Sunday we headed over to a free concert, fireworks show and art exhibit in Exposition Park.

We learned so much about Authur Mitchell and his amazing work with 
the Dance Theater of Harlem when we checked out the 
"Dance Theater of Harlem 40 Years of Firsts" exhibit at CAAM!
So inspirational!
