A Little Behind the Scenes with Jessica

Here's a few behind the scenes photos from a shoot I did with Jessica Lendstrom and Gabriel Gurrola.  Jessica is an amazing model at Agency Arizona and has a wonderful future ahead of her!  Oh!  And I did her hair for this shoot as well.  Funny story, we didn't have a comb or brush around, just a curling iron, so I use my lash comb to brush her hair.  It actually turned out really good LOL.  I find new uses for my brushes everyday :)

(Forgive the quality of these pics.  Phone Camera..G2 sucks at taking pictures)

Second Look...Isn't her hair so pretty from being done with a lash comb hahaha

LOTD16 - Kristen Stewart W Magazine Cover

Did Kristen Stewart look amazing or what on the cover of the September 2011 issue of W magazine???  She should wear her hair like that everyday!!  Her makeup was to die for too!  I loved everything about her look for the Breaking Dawn Part 1 interview.  Who knew a bombshell was hiding under her usual tomboy-ish style?  Gorgeous!

Jewerly Haul from Old Navy

I stopped by Old Navy to get a pair of jeans and they had an awesome jewerly clearance happening.  Most things were $3!!!  I'm obsessed with blue right now and am always gitty over new jewerly, so of course I had to shop.  I got 8 pairs of earrings, 1 bracelet, and 2 necklaces.  All this jewerly...under $30!  Yay for Old Navy!  They have some of the cutest jewerly I've seen lately.


 My Favorite Pair of Earrings At the Moment!

LOTD14 - Raspberry Crush

I loved this lip/cheek stain from Stila because of how bright it was. It's very pretty, especially for summertime.  Sadly, when I wore it for the day, it collected and got darker on my inner lip making it look like I had drank a bunch of red Kool Aid, lol.  It might have been because I put a lip gloss on top, but I'm not sure.  It was still lots of fun to wear and is a beautiful color!
