Prom is right around the corner! I already have my dress and shoes but I have yet to finalize my hair and makeup:( I am very indecisive and also nervous about the whole ordeal. I have folders on my desktop dedicated to my prom hair and makeup, every time I see a celebrity picture I like I pull it out and add it to the folder, and lemme tell you its pretty thick!

I bought my dress a few months back, a picture of it will be posted below. as you can see, it is dark blue with dark sequin/diamonds around the bust. I really love it! Once I tried it on I just knew it would be the one! But theres only one problem, although the dress looks great on, I dont know what colours I should do for makeup! HELP!! I typically stick with neutral colours (browns, beige) but I dont think that would go very well with the dark blue. But if I go with blue eyeshadow I feel like it might be a little bit overboard, what do you think?

I also dont know wether or not I should year my hair up or down. Im afraid if I wear it down and curly that the curls will fall and I will be left with limp lifeless hair by the end of the night, which is the LAST thing I want. But on the other hand, My hair doesn't look that great when it is up and I would really like to show of my new extensions. Leave a comment if you have gone to prom or any other special event and what your thoughts on hair are:)

As I have mentioned before, I get very intimidated by makeup artists. I always feel as though they are judging me and secretly laughing at me. But I am going to have to face my fear for prom, I need to get my makeup done professionally somewhere I think but Im not sure where. I have heard so many horror stories about ugly makeup and having to go home and redo it yourself.

I also dont know the etiquette of going to get your makeup done. Because I do my own makeup every day I have come up with little tips that help my makeup melt better into my skin and I know the dry parts of it and how it looks with certain colours. So do I tell my makeup artist all this? Do I bring her my usual foundation? DO I tell her I get oily but have dry patches? Oh there is just so much to think about! And on top of all that, I have no idea where I should go, I want a professional but I'm very particular to what I like and dislike as far as my makeup goes

Anyway's I think thats enough ranting for tonight. I wil leave you guys with a few of the pictures I was considering for my makeup followed by a couple pictures of what I would like to do with my hair. Let me know what you think! Thanks!

Hair Extensions

Its been a couple months but I am still craving some extensions! It seems like I notice them on girls more and more lately. I dont know if it's because I am looking for them more or if they are simply getting more popular?! But none the lessI still really want a pair!

I've been on the hunt for a while know so that I could get the perfect pair! Last month I saw a set of the Jessica Simpson clip in ones and I decided to go ahead and try them out. They are 18 inches, synthetic hair and pre curled. At first they looked great, they were shiny and soft and blended perfectly with my hair texture and colour. They were different then most in the way that they're is only one weft, that has around 6-8 clips and it clips all around the bottom back of your head. After a couple of outings with them they were completely ruined. They got completely fuzzy and hair was flying everywhere, knots started to form and overall it was just a mess. So needless to say I would not recommend them to anyone. Luckily I bought them at Winners so they were relatively cheap which makes me feel a bit better about the purchase. So after that happened I hung the creepy fake hair up and started my search again.

This time I decided to go big or go home. I did a lot of research, looked at other blogs, and review sites as well as a lot of the beauty gurus on youtube in search of the perfect set of extensions. I talked to a family friend who suggested that I go to Sally's and make my own but I dont think I'm at that level just yet. I decided to go with Hello Gorgeous Hair extensions. I watched some other Canadians on youtube who all vouched for the company and I also checked out the Facebook group to see what the consumers thought of the product and everything looked good. I wasn't entirely sure what colour I should get or if I should go with a combination but luckily I was able to post a picture of myself to the facebook page and the lovely Shannon (who deals with all of the people on facebook) got back to me quickly and suggested a combination that looks like it will be absolutely great! I'm hoping that my extensions will come in time for prom and around that same time I will post a more in depth review with the speciic pros and cons of the extensions. But for know I am really looking forward to getting the long luscious locks! I can't wait until I can curl my hair the Kardashian way! AHH I am beyond excited about all of this.!!
