Spring Trends

Hi everyone! I am glad to announce another guest post by Blake.  :)

 Red Hair!! 

The hippie girl that I am is very sad to see these two beauties discard their famous Ombre look for a new, slightly more exciting color. Blake Lively and Drew Barrymore are a couple of celebs that helped make the care free ‘California surfer girl’ hair so popular.  Though, I have to admit that both of these reds look fabulous (and I’m so glad they did their brows too!). Drew’s color is more of a red brown, complementing her gorgeous eyes and is keeping in the slightly undone look that looks so great on her. Blake’s coppery tone looks amazing with her bronzed skin and aqua dress.  And, of course, make sure you consult with a professional before you try this look, as reds can be very tricky, in many ways ;)

Floral Bags

Keeping with the idea of creating your own summer aura, carrying a floral print bag will enhance your glow and keep you smiling. These types of bags are particularly great because they have a summer quality about them, while remaining professional and cute. I absolutely adore the Marc by Marc Jacobs line, and the classiness of this bag, but there are so many styles, colors and looks to choose from. Not only are floral prints in, but bright yellows, blues and pinks, which I’m all for!

Chunky Heels


As I’m sure you’ve been seeing around town, chunky heels are back in! Though the stiletto is still a classic choice, wedges, clogs and sculpted heels are huge this spring. Many of them are being made with a multitude of colors and shapes to add some life to those little feet that have been hidden all winter. I absolutely adore these designs and only wish I had the courage (and balance) to wear six inch platform wedges.

Have a wonderful, hopefully sun filled weekend!

I hope that everyone has enjoyed the beautiful wedding between Catherine Middleton and Prince William. Stunning bride, handsome Prince and elegant service.

Have an enchanted Friday!

Lash Dip

Ok, I'm so excited to tell you about a little beauty secret that I have come across that seems relatively new to the lash world called LASHDIP. I have personally not had this done but for those who already have amazing lashes and those who don't want to put on mascara everyday but like the look without the runny, smudgy, clumpy look; we may have found you the perfect beauty secret. Right now, because this is new to the beauty scene, it isn't available everywhere. In the state of Washington, I can only find 2 spas that carry it. On Lashdip's website it gives you a directory of who are educated and trained in your state to apply Lashdip.

The one thing that I absolutely love about this product is that it can be applied to the lower lashes as well. With traditional eye lash extensions that is not a common practice. I just spoke with my lash extension gal and she thinks it can be  a great pairing with lash extensions. It can help out the lower lashes better blend with the top extension lashes. I'm all for it! 

You can find out all the info you will ever need to know at Lashdip's website here.

Have fun glamouring yourself up!

Earth Day...I'm a little late :)

I am so excited for 3 reason's today...

1. Today was sunny and beautiful..It makes my heart smile :)
2. It's Earth Day...even if there is only  2 hours left.
3. I have enlisted a very special person to write today's post. She is near and dear to my heart and she is on her way to being an amazing stylist. So without further ado, I introduce to you, Blake.

Spring Trends (Part I)

Happy Earth Day, everyone!
First of all, I would like to mention that this is Jaclyn’s assistant from SEVEN, (though I’m sure she could use one for her everyday life, seeing as she’s constantly on the move) Blake. I would like to take this opportunity to express how amazing it’s been working with such an incredibly driven woman.  Her work ethic, and honest care for her clients and career constantly remind me of why I am in this business and remind me to push myself to a new level every day, as she does.  Since I’m sure this is embarrassing my humble mentor, I will move on to some fun spring trends that will brighten up our gray Seattle days.

Being able to wear a nail color that makes my pale, vitamin D deprived skin look like its glowing makes me feel incredible. It also brightens up a colorless outfit just as well as any accessory & is a constant, colorful reminder that summer is just around the corner. Of course there are other options than Dior’s electric tropics collection, but these are one of my favorites (due to their names reminding me of being under a palm tree somewhere.)


Anything with lily, jasmine, rose, violet, honeysuckle or gardenia. These beautiful scents will add life to any drab day. Marc Jacobs’ new fragrance contains, not only some of these floral scents, but adds some grapefruit and raspberry, for a little crisp edge. And really, anything in such a cute bottle is bound to add a spring to your step ;)

And last for today,

Last year, everyone was wearing a high, ballerina-esque bun, but this spring it’s more of a loose, flowing style. Center parts, slightly undone pieces in the front, and lots of twists and turns in the back. And of course, backcombing will add a little bit of drama, and a ‘night’ feel to this cute trend. (Backcombing ‘HOW TO’, soon to come!)

I hope these tips inspire you to go out feeling beautiful and refreshed, glowing and letting off your own sunshine.

Thank you Blake for a lovely post! 
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
