Hair Tutorials + California Vlog

March 3, 2016

Disclosure:  Thank you lunchbox for sponsoring this amazing opportunity.  This post was brought to you in collaboration with Lunchbox but all opinions are my own.

My trip to LA was pretty much a dream and I met the most amayyyzing people.  I was sooo nervous to go.  I had no clue what to expect and was worried I’d feel out of place… cause you know… I’m just your regular stay-at-home mom and I make videos in my bedroom that I share with a lot of cool friends.  I don’t feel like someone extra important.  So to be in an atmosphere where there were producers, legit film crew + make up artists and hairstylists scared the FREAKING crap out of me!  It was so refreshing though, to find that I was surrounded by incredibly kind people that were just doing what they loved and having a good time while doing it.



 ^^ Getting all dolled up!!  This was the first time I’ve ever had anyone else do my makeup — it was amazing.  Now can I be a famous celeb already?!






^^ THESE TWO!!!  Complete babes and just the most amazing magicians in the world. 


 ^^ legit I tell you.




 ^^ Meet Genivive.  She was my makeup artist and partner in crime.  She laughed at all my jokes and made me feel so witty.  I just love it when you find people who inspire you to be your best self.  She’s a keeper and I miss her already!



You can find the video I filmed with TRESemmé over at and the Halo Braided Half-Up + Twisted Bun Tutorials can be found here!


 Now finally the VLOG!! I sure hope you enjoy watching!!
