Katherine Found the Perfect Dress!

My daughter, Katherine, is a senior this year.  I call her the professional formal dance girl!  She goes to so many proms and homecomings!  This is her senior year, and for her prom (the one at her school-she's going to others), she wanted a "poofy" princess dress!

We looked everywhere, but we just couldn't find it!  She finally settled on a non-poofy dress from Nordstroms, which is gorgeous, but not exactly what she wanted it.

We've ordered from http://www.unique-vintage.com/ before and had good luck there!  She found a poofy dress there, and decided to take a chance that it would fit and be perfect.  It just arrived today!

Guess what!? It was made for Katherine!  Absolutely gorgeous, and I'm so happy (so is she)!

This picture was taken in amongst my vintage mess of stuff, so ignore that, and the fact that Katherine had basically just woken up when I took this picture!

I can't wait to show pictures of the big day, with her hair all fixed up!

Her determination paid off!

New Round Brush

I love my new round brush!  I just bought it at one of my favorite stores, Target! 

As I get older, my hair gets thinner, and needs as much lift as it can get!  I've been letting it grow longer.  This brush is great!

It's from Goody and it's called the "Ouchless Curling" Brush with Retractable Bristles.  For me, the retractable button at the top was pretty pointless.  It's hard enough to use just two hands to blow dry your hair with a brush, so to try to press the button at the top, well, that's just crazy!

A tip for keeping the curl/lift in after blow drying a section of your hair with the round brush, let it cool for a few seconds before releasing your hair. 

The one I bought was the medium size.  I also have a teenier size that I bought at my hair salon.  That's great for just taking tiny sections of hair, just in a few spots for lift.  Just make sure to cool it before releasing it, that is the best trick!  Instant lift!

My brush was under $8.00!

Have a great weekend!
