This Is What’s Nup! - (In honor of Ashley)
Hello! This blog did not make the September first deadline – many apologies my beauties! Ashley and I have been burning the candle at both ends through the end of August here - I don’t even think we have had a five word conversation! I got back from vacation (and honestly needed a vacation from that!), nose - dived into the school year plus working; all the while Ashley is busy running a business And buying a house…And getting married…this Saturday! No Big Deal, right?!? I’m so glad she is taking some time off and honored that she has entrusted me to hold down the fabulous fort that is True North (-: Even though I have not known Ashley that long she is a truly phenomenal stylist, business woman and person! She is exactly the type of woman that I described in my first blog (so go back and read that if you haven’t already!) Ashley gave me a great opportunity to work with her but not only that, she let me start this blog and is someone that believes in me, believes in supporting women and that only equals her success. In turn, I love that her business is thriving and the people of Grand Rapids have welcomed her with open arms! I am rooting for her both personally and professionally, so this one is for you Ms. Promersberger (and that’s probably the last time I’ll be able to use your last name – ha!) We just did our first wedding party at True North last Saturday, it was an awesome day filled with great hair styles (toot, toot, tooting our horn), laughs and excitement, and mimosas (-; – the perfect warm up to Ashley’s big day! My product picks for any wedding/formal day are: Aveda’s Volumizing Tonic – it is a Great setting spray before the curling iron, smells like white grapes and will make your curls last all day. The Control Force hair spray sets your updo/style all day from saying ‘I do’ to doing the funky chicken on the dance floor! The Brilliant Spray-On Shine adds a little sparkle and shine to your magical day when every piece is shellacked and pinned – this is the icing! And if I could pick one make - up product it would have to be Aveda’s Lip Shine in golden prism; after you put on your favorite shade of lipstick use this over it. Your lips will look like something out of a fairy tale and re-re-ready for your groom to kiss his bride (-: Have a Marvelous Day Ashley this September 6th!! I’ll be thinking about you, and I wish you and Ryan All the love & happiness in the world – CHEERS!!! Everyone else: Stay Beautiful! (-: OX
