Combined Fishtail Braid

1ek 2e 5ek6e s7e

Okay you guys — this braid was amazing.  Xavier Jimenez, stylist at the TRESemmé Trend Bar and Salon, styled this amazing combined fishtail braid.  I didn’t give him any direction, I just said I wanted something fun and crazy and boy did he follow through!  It was perfect.  When you’re among some of the most beautiful and beautifully dressed people at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, having a bold hairstyle like this combined fishtail braid was just enough to make little ole’ me stand out.  On our way into the Mara Hoffman show I was stopped by the E! Network and they interviewed me for a little video on NY Street Style.  Here’s the link if you want to watch it and you’ll also see the gorgeous Teri Jon dress I’m sharing on the blog tomorrow!  It’s so crazy to look back on this experience because this is totally not my life…

I’m a stay-at-home mom to two beautiful kids.  They keep me crazy busy and disheveled most days!  You can find me wearing yoga pants, little makeup and entertaining or cleaning up messy art activities and left over mac and cheese.  As important and glamorous as I felt those four days in NY, the trip only made me realize how grateful I am to have my family.  My children and husband adore me and I literally can do no wrong in their eyes.  It’s a special feeling to be that loved and that needed.  The saying is the grass is always greener, but I don’t think that’s true.  I think it could be greener for about two minutes and then you realize the grass just isn’t as sweet.
