Living Proof

Full of 'Prom'-ise: Formal Styles That'll Make You Wanna Dance!

The biggest event of high school is prom! Maybe not for the boys, but prom is like a mini-wedding for a girl... the search for the perfect dress (that no one else has), hair extensions, mani and pedi with your 15 closest girlfriends, tanning,  booking your hair and makeup appointment... finding a location to take pictures, renting a limo... the after party....oh and don't forget about that corsage!

I had the pleasure of dolling up clothing designer, and model, Lily for Modcloth's "Full of Prom'-ise" Shop our outfits photo shoot.

Hume = Happiness

August has been a very busy month for me, so it's been tough keeping up with posting on a regular basis. It's wedding season, we recently moved to a new place, annnnd I celebrated my 1 year anniversary with my hubby! I feel like we just got married! Soon-to-be-Mrs listen up-enjoy every moment of planning your wedding...indulge in the details, take joy in the mishaps of the preparation, and on your day stand still and soak it all in! The day ends SO fast. I wasn't expecting a whole year to fly by just as quick as my wedding day, so enjoy your first year of marriage to the fullest!! I guess the saying is true, time flies when you are having fun.

James and I met at Hume Lake years ago, so it was only appropriate we spend our first anniversary in this beautiful place. Ever girl squeals over her Summer Camp crush, so to come back with a husband and relive those butterflies was so fun. We hiked to the cove, played volleyball & frisbee golf, rented paddle boards to absorb the beauty of the lake, enjoyed milkshakes, sat by a campfire...sigh and just soaked in the beauty of the trees.

Living Proof Shampoo & Conditioner. Kiehl's Acai Damage-Minimizing Cleanser. Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer & Eye Basic in Buff. Dior Lip Maximizer.
I packed very light, but thought it was the perfect time to try out my Living Proof Shampoo and Conditioner. I was skeptical...I have tried some other products in the past and they didn't work for my hair. I was pleasantly surprised with these 2 choices, the results were great! When you travel to new heights, your hair reacts strangely, but my hair was soft, healthy, and not frizzy at all. Also, when I took out my pony tail, the hair was less crimped than normal!

As we were moving, I found Kiehl's Acai Damage-Minimizing Cleanser. Perfect for our trip!  I felt one with nature using such an organic based product. It is so important to find products that can target all concerns. I felt this completed the task controlling my oily skin, while preventing signs of aging in my skin. I also appreciated the foam texture.

Choose a lighter tone for your manicure, and a darker hue for your pedicure!
