Sneak Peek!!

Happy Wednesday folks! What did you do to get over the hump? Me? I ramped up for a great weekend by bringing a little glam to my my client Karen, who was delightfully anticipating her engagement photo shoot at the spectacular Anderson House this evening. Karen and her hubby-to-be, Marvin will be taking the often casual snapshot session up a few notches by dressing to the nines in full formal gear. I can't wait to see the shots!

Blu Water and a Mauve Mani

77+ degrees and a fresh mani...does it get any better than that?? Wedding season is here and my hands are dancing in the faces of many brides and their loves ones every weekend as i wield my magic beauty wands. Needless to say, a quick trip to my new favorite nail wizard, Jenny at Blu Water Day Spa in Kensington gets my tips in top shape for a busy weekend ahead!

Blu Water is peaceful and pretty every where you look.

What is it called? "Using My Maiden Name" by Essie...I just can't get away from this matrimony madness! Gotta love it!

Spring is here! I had the best time kicking off spring this past weekend...my clients and my activities were sunny and bright! I've decided I'm all about the elderflower cocktail for the next few months...

Sunny on a Saturday...perfect day for a Spring wedding in the city!!

Usually when you hit a spot in the city and they tell you that their brunch has just ended and their kitchen is closed, it's a sad time...all frowns were turned upside down when they told us that we could still order a few items from their  Sandwich menu and of course drinks!! My elderflower obsession this weekend started here with their Elderflower Martini and is blossoming.  Thanks  Shaw's Tavern ...we'll be back!!

Although my guy didn't know it...we were on a crawl, the search for more of my new coveted spirit continued at  Scion.   Cleverly located in my building in Downtown Silver Spring, this little gem of a restaurant boasted a pretty appropriately titled libation to add to my list of new faves!

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with gorgeous Kara who will be "going to the chapel" this coming May.  Against the urging of her super glam mom and sister, this fresh faced beauty typically shies away from the idea of a fully stocked makeup bag.  We needed to keep her in her comfort zone, enhance her natural beauty and keep the radiance going all night long.  In the end Kara, her mom, her delightful puppy Griffin and I all agree...she's going to be a stunner!
