A Look Back At 2019

About this time of year everyone starts talking about their goals. My goals as a business owner have not changed much over the years, I set out to bring each of my clients a polished look, enhance their natural beauty, but beyond what they see in the mirror make them feel great about themselves. This past year was pretty amazing I was able to work with some amazing clients whom I have became friends with. They made me feel so happy because they were genuinely happy. There honestly is nothing better then assisting in someone feeling confident in themselves! Weather it be on their wedding day or a birthday party “nothing is prettier then a happy girl.”

Since it’s the last day of 2019 I thought I’d look back and share with you ten amazing moments that truly made me smile in 2019! (Not in any particular order)

I had the opportunity to do hair and makeup styling for Kristy Maffit for the cover of her book. Have you ever met someone and thought this girl is going places! That would be Kristy. She is the author of Forty Mornings a self help book about how to discover your soul. She’s such a beautiful person and you can find her book on Amazon.

I love when couples make there wedding day all about them and who they are as a couple. Shannon and Travis made their wedding day all about them but fun for the guests as well. Shannon and Travis has a beautiful one of a kind fairytale wedding.

Ally and I have known each other since kindergarten so it was so sweet to be able to provide hair and makeup services for her wedding day! She made an absolutely stunning bride. I also was able to do her hair for her family Christmas cards with her husband daughter and cute little pregnant belly! Can’t wait to see baby Kuhn soon!

I did not actually meet bride Nicola until her wedding day but we definitely hit it off right away. She was so excited to get married you could tell they were so in love! She was one bride I definitely clicked with and enjoyed being apart of such a special day! Ps - they are also Expecting a little one CONGRATULATIONS!!!

When I first started talking with bride Katrina she was in a panic. She was a bride who booked with another artist that turned out to be a scam. She had an absolute horrible experience with that company and was working on getting her money refunded. I was horrified that someone could do that to a bride! Told her I would help her in anyway I could. Katrina had a beautiful wedding day at Timberline Lodge surrounded by family and life long friends.

In October I headed out to Siletz Bay near Lincoln City, to do hair and makeup for my friend Megan’s engagement photos. Husband to be and her are “pretty fishy” so of course there was a fresh off the boat fish in some of the photos. I can’t wait for the big day!

Such a pleasure being able to do hair and makeup for gorgeous bride Megan, I have known Megan for a couple years now. She was just a sweet little high school girl and my kids thought she was the funniest babysitter! Megan truly is such a kind hearted person and an absolutely GORGEOUS BRIDE When I was getting Megan ready she opened a card from her soon to be husband that had a Petco gift card so they could get a cat together. She cried reading her card about there new adventures as husband and wife and cat owners. Definitely a memorable moment!

Father’s Day weekend we loaded up the car and headed east to Sun River Resort for a wedding. I decided that it would be a great gift to my husband as well so let’s make a weekend out of it. Hope and her family loved the idea and welcomed my husband and kids to come along. Hope was such a sweet girl with a great family. It was so great to see a young bride so in love but also with such an amazing support system.

This year I also rearranged my studio space and added room for eyelash extensions. This has been so much fun and now I actually get some use out of having two rooms in my studio!

My job gives me a unique ability to be apart of so many special moments. High school graduation, college graduation and birth announcements! Congratulations to some very special people. Abby graduating high school, Michelle graduating nursing school, Mike and Ann adding a sweet baby girl to their family.

I could go on and on about so many special moments this year! Thank you to all my clients and supporters for making 2019 such an awesome year. I’m looking forward to 2020 being even better!

If your looking for hair, makeup or eyelash extensions for your wedding or special event I’m now available and booking for 2020.
