What Is In My Closet This Fall?

25 Sep

Fall is finally here I could not be more excited.  There are several reasons why fall is my hands down favorite season and one of those reasons is because of the clothes!  I wanted to shop around at inexpensive stores near my home and find a few fashion staples that I can use for many different outfits and occasions without breaking the bank.  Below, I am showcasing a few of the purchases that I made along with their retailers that can all be found nationwide or online.  I didn’t spend of $50 for a single piece!

Boyfriend Blazer.  Every girl should have several blazers in her closet.  They can be dressed up or down and are always an easy “go-to”.  I like the “boyfriend” style a lot because it feels very relaxed and comfortable.  On days when I am running out the door to meet a client or go to the boutiques, I know that I can throw this on and look and feel great!

Perk Up Your Rainy Day

It is a fabulously rainy day here in Atlanta and I’m going to show you how to prepare for the weather.  Just because it’s wet out doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look cute.

Rain Boots!  They are great because they are cute and can be worn with anything.  Dresses, Jeans, Leggings, Pantyhose…anything!

Weekend Of Makeup

17 Sep

Happy Monday 🙂

I hope you all had an amazing weekend.  Mine was fantastic but it went by SO fast!  Here is a little photo diary of the chaos.

Over the weekend I had SEVERAL bridal trial runs.  It was madness in my office between scheduling weddings, trial runs, face charts, contracts, deposits…. needless to say, a spread sheet was born.

I hope you all had a Fab week and have an even better weekend.   I leave you now with my five favorites from this week.

The Fall

11 Sep

I could not be more excited right now.  Fall is around the corner and you can feel it in the air.  I have a theory that everything good happens in the Fall.  In Spring you do “spring cleaning” and in the Fall…well, I do what I call “fall organizing”.  I feel like this is the time when all that has been weighing on you falls away (pun intended) and you can just open your eyes, take a deep breath and reevaluate.  Reorganize.  Rinse. Repeat.

As a part of my reorganization, I am about to rebuild all of my websites and rework many of my promotional materials.  In the process of working on everything, I made a portfolio video that will promote my work with Wedding Wire.  It is just a little something extra that I thought was really cute and does a great job of showcasing my work.  I hope you like it and make sure you follow our blog to get updates on everything happening with Lace Cosmetics and Amanda Ford Pro services!

A Bride and Then Five

10 Sep

Hello and welcome to another beautiful week!  I had an AMAZING weekend filled with work, events, socializing and receiving dozens of service inquiries!  Not too bad if I do say so myself 🙂

I received a few wedding pictures from the fabulous Mrs. Anna D.  I was her makeup artist for her wedding and loved that she sent me prints that I can now share with all of you!   Anna and her family were so pleased with my work that I booked five other weddings after working with her!  How awesome is that?!

Check out a few of her beautiful pictures below.
