Barber Cut Dublin

The reason for our trip. The wonderful event that finally got us to make the leap and cross the pond. Barber Cut Dublin. Let me just start by saying this; yes, I know that Andrew has a large following on Instagram, 133,000+ followers is no small amount. Yes, I know that Andrew gets recognized by people all the time, but that’s usually near home. And yes, I know that Andrew’s hair product, ADH, is sold in other countries including Ireland. These are things I know and I am always proud […] Read more…

Castles? We’ve Got Castles!

It’s one of those things you just don’t realize is so special because its always been there. I know with me sometimes I forget how lucky I am to live only 20 min from Disneyland and to be able to go nearly every week. That’s how it seems to be with the Irish and their castles. Andrew and I were constantly in awh of all the castles in Ireland. Some fully functioning, some in ruins but all jaw dropping and gorgeous. One of our friends in Ireland was laughing at […] Read more…

Cliffs Of Moher

If ever there was a place to be described as breathtaking, the Cliffs of Moher is it. This was one of the only things that was a “must see” on my Ireland to do list. We’d been staying in Dublin so we rented a car (I did the driving! I killed it at driving on the wrong side of the road!) and drove 3 hours across the island to see the cliffs. That day had been particularly rainy and the closer we got the worse the weather got. Once we […] Read more…

Ireland, We Made It!

I’ve wanted to travel to Europe for so long but I never thought it would ever really happen. So when the opportunity to go to Ireland came up I was more then eager to jump on it!  But still all through the planning and booking process I had a really hard time believing it was real. And then it finally arrived and for the entire day before we left my stomach was doing flips. I was so nervous and excited all at once. There were so many unknowns that I just didn’t […] Read more…

Black Tie Evening

Andrew and I go to a lot of weddings and I love every one of them, but it’s not often that these weddings are “Black Tie” events. Oh boy was I excited when we got our invitation for this wedding! I could not wait to go get a floor length gown and get all dolled up. (Just for a little insight into my love of formals, I threw a Prom for my 25th birthday because as an adult there are just not enough reasons to wear a gown. It was […] Read more…

Classic With A Country Flare

This was such a fun group of girls to work with! When I first met Kristen I liked her immediately so it was no surprise that I felt the same way when I met each one of her sweet bridesmaids. The entire morning flew by so effortlessly with the girls laughing and chatting and having a great time. We even got an impromptu “Britney Spears” dance performance by the brides sister, and she was good! I also loved Kristen’s style. She perfectly blended flowing lace, soft vintage flowers and cowboy boots.  It was a […] Read more…

Off The Grid

My In-Laws have a second home out in the middle of nowhere. Its nothing extravagant but it has just enough of all the right ingredients for a fun weekend away. There’s no Wi-Fi and the cell service is pretty spotty but they’ve got a golf cart, a quad, a pond and a few acres of land to play in.  It’s the perfect inspiration for to everyone to put their phones away and spend the entire day outside. This particular weekend Andrew and I packed up and headed out with his sister Danielle and […] Read more…

Big Bear

We had such a great time in Big Bear with two of our best friends David and Chloe and their sweet baby girl Coraline. Their parents had recently bought a cabin and they wanted us to go up with them for a weekend. Andrew and I were, of course more then happy to do so. Now, before we got there they kept calling this place a cabin, but when I think of a cabin I think of a small 2 or 3 bedroom little place… Um, this “cabin” is a […] Read more…

A San Francisco Date

Over the past year Andrew had been up to San Francisco multiple times to work in salons and teach classes, and every time I wanted to go but it just never worked out. I had never been to San Fran before. So as a surprise Andrew bought us tickets to fly up for the day! We had so much fun!  First thing in the morning we headed to the airport and after a quick 45min flight we were ready to paint the town red! We had no desire to waste […] Read more…

Its A Mad Barbie

So I found a picture of this amazing mod 60s looking Barbie and I just HAD to recreate her. But before I even booked a model or a photographer I wanted to go out and see if it was even possible for me to find clothes similar enough to the ones in the photo. I mean, if I couldn’t find the right outfit or jewelry then it wouldn’t quite work. So I went down to my local Goodwill to see what I could find. Sure enough there was this absolutely […] Read more…
