Juan was asked to be in his friend's wedding this last weekend. He's had this planned for quite some time. I knew that going to this wedding combined with the Cult Nails Labor Day sale was going to be tough to manage. We pride ourselves on super fast shipping, so we had to figure out a way to manage shipping all the orders that came in Friday afternoon to Saturday morning before we went out of town. Needless to say, as we were walking out the door, we realized we still hadn't bought shoes for two of my daughters. So as we ran out of the house hoping that we would have enough time to get everything we need and get Juan to the pre-wedding photos on time. This should be fun!
As we were in the car Juan politely told me that I would have to get ready at warp speed as I would only have 15 minutes once I got to the room to get ready. WHAT? Come again? Has he met me? I mean after 16+ years of marriage, he had to be kidding! So I grabbed my makeup bag and went to work on my makeup. I am used to doing my makeup in the car, so whatevs, I got this! But what about my hair? I let it air dry and it was hanging like bleh. I had a specific hairstyle in mind, and now I was going to have to figure something new out, or was I? Did I dare try this hairstyle in the car? Well if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you already know I did. I apologize for the pic quality in this post now - I didn't bring my camera and had to deal with the camera on my phone for all my pictures this weekend.
|Doing my hair in the car with no view of the back! I had to keep having my daughter take pictures so I could see how it was going back there! LOL!|
|Here's a side view. I did a loose french braid on each side and then rolled the rest of the hair in pins for a messy look in the back.|
|Here is the almost done look. After seeing this picture, I fixed the few that looked like they were straying from the rest.|
|This picture cracks me up! I look like an Alien and look at my kids leg behind me! This is the finished makeup look, but dang the angle of the photo makes me look so weird! HA!|
|Here is a fuzzy pic of the makeup and hair. It was the best I could get.|
|I got the dress at Dillard's for $69, I have no idea who makes the dress though. The shoes are from Guess from last year. The bracelet was gifted to me by a friend. And I can't remember when or where I got the necklace or earrings. I suck I know. LOL|
|Bonus pic #1 - My 12 year old daughter decided to do matching polka dots on her nails. How cute!|
