OCTOBER STYLE CHALLENGE: YOUR BEST BRIDESMAID LOOK

I was asked by Weddington Way to participate in their October Style Challenge, which is to imagine yourself as a maid of honor helping the bride style her wedding party and come up with your best bridesmaid look that you would recommend to her. Ironically, I will ACTUALLY be a maid of honor in one year! My older sister is getting married in October 2015!! So I was super excited that I was asked to participate in this challenge since it’s really not such a hypothetical situation for me!

I decided to go with my sister’s classic color theme of navy, light pink and nudes. I chose to style Weddington Way’s Donna Morgan Jessie Bridesmaid Dress in Midnight blue. I love this dress because it is a very classic style that will look good on any body type. My two other sisters will also be bridesmaids and we all have very different figures, so this dress would be perfect. My sister is getting married at the Sterling Mansion so I chose all classic and elegant pieces to style this dress.

Find Weddington Way’s many different dresses here.

I had so much fun creating my post for this challenge. I want to thank Weddington Way for inviting me to participate!

Unite Hair Products Review

In our last sales meeting at work we received a goodie bag of Unite products to try! I have been trying them out one by one and I definitely have a couple favorites. Here are all the products we got and their description: 

My favorites are the 7Seconds Condtion the Lazer Straight, and I also really like the U Luxury Oil; it makes my hair really soft. I didn’t really know about this brand before I worked at Raylon and now there are a few products I would actually consider buying from them. I’m having tons of fun trying out all different products and brands! 🙂

Redken Goodies Haul

Here is my haul of Redken beauty products that I was given to try out on my first day working at Raylon! I really like all of these products so far. They all work really well and do what they’re supposed to do. I’ve only been trying out the Blonde Idol Custom-Tone Conditioners for a few days so I haven’t seen much change yet but I’ve been told they definitely work!

Do you have any of these products or a different Redken product that you love?? Let me know!

Something Fishy for Summer

The fishtail braid is an easy hairstyle that doesn’t take a lot of time and is a perfect look for summer. My sister inspired this post today. She is just starting to get interested in doing her own hair and trying out all kinds of hair styles. Her latest is the fishtail braid!

My younger sister made a fishtail braid in my hair today. Pretty good, don’t you think?!


Here’s a step by step graphic to help you learn how. That is, if you haven’t already tried it yet!

Plus, here are some tips from The Beauty Department:

  • For a smoother braid, brush your hair out first. For a messier braid, leave the natural texture and separate the hair with your fingers.
  • Create a pony tale using a clear elastic before you begin braiding. Then cut it out after you finish the braid. This will keep your braid nice and neat and you wont have to worry about holding all the pieces together while you braid.
  • Don’t think too hard about this braid and end up confusing yourself. You’re simply making X’s with your strands; moving pieces of hair from side to side.

Try it out and send me a pic if you’d like!
