Now for what I am reading- The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets: Eva Rice

I normally don't post what I am currently reading but the book is just wonderful and I had to share it! And it based in Nov/Dec and talks about holiday parties and such. I love it so, I am just on Chapter 9, the chapters are somewhat long. Its an easy read and its rather funny it quirky way. I am just in love with Charlotte so far, she so free spirited in a high fashion kinda way. And her cousin Harry well he odd that it makes he so handsome.  I suggest it for what I read so far. You buy it from amazon if you like. I got my mind at Books a Million for $3, that is the reason why I bought it. Thinking it might be good, and I was right :P
 ( from Amazon)
 Set in 1950s London, The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets centers around Penelope, the wide- eyed daughter of a legendary beauty, Talitha, who lost her husband to the war. Penelope, with her mother and brother, struggles to maintain their vast and crumbling ancestral home—while postwar London spins toward the next decade’s cultural revolution.
Penelope wants nothing more than to fall in love, and when her new best friend, Charlotte, a free spirit in the young society set, drags Penelope into London with all of its grand parties, she sets in motion great change for them all. Charlotte’s mysterious and attractive brother Harry uses Penelope to make his American ex-girlfriend jealous, with unforeseen consequences, and a dashing, wealthy American movie producer arrives with what might be the key to Penelope’s— and her family’s—future happiness.
Vibrant, witty, and filled with vivid historical detail, The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets is an utterly unique debut novel about a time and place just slipping into history.

so there you have it!

Hair going PINK!?

Hey y'all,
yes the title says it all! I am wanting to dye my hair pink! Crazy I know, I am wanting it to be pastel pink. So I have been YouTube, google searching, and just searching on how to do this the right and long lasting way. I know the basics on how to this before I even started my searching. You bleach it, tone it and then add pink color. But the more I research the more tricks, tips, and info I found. Lots of helpful things. I even been doing research on products.

I was at one point this Summer I had pink highlights in my blonde hair, but they were a little bright. Which I found out how you can lighten the bright colors! You just use conditioner, how cool is that? If I would have known that back when I was already blonde I would have went pink then, but now I am some funky red/brown color! It is awful I know!
Here are some pics of when i had blonde and pink hair.

1) This is I say a month after I had the pink added to my hair. I washed it with cold water and just used conditioner. It did faded a bit. If enlarge the image it looks baby pink. 2 &3 ) I have it pinned back so you can see more of the pink.. 4) was taken at Easter and my hair is straighten too. 5) was the day I had the pink added and my roots touched up. Was about 4 days before Easter. I used Raw Hair color that came from hot topic; which was about $12 I am not too sure, a friend bought it for me.
So there you have it with my hair with a little pink. Now this is what I want. :D
looks like cotton candy! I just love it!
So after seen what I had done pink a while back and now seeing what I want, do you think I should go all over pink? Also do you have any tips on funky hair color?

My Wedding Pinterest Boards

Hey y'all! I thought to share with you all my wedding Pinterest boards. I know I haven't formally announce mine and Curtis engagement yet but We are engaged! We are planning an engagement Party for February. We set the date for the wedding to be Sept. 6th 2013. We are so excited! So I will be posting all kinds of things wedding related. Though I even thought about starting a wedding blog, but then again I don't think so. Its too much work, I already have 2 photography sites and this blog to run.

Anyways back to pinterest you can follow me if you like on pinterest but here are screen shots of my boards. We are going for a whimsical country theme wedding. Almost like Alice & Wonderland vibe.  We are also thinking of using Pink and Orange for our colors, but then again I like Pink and Gold. So we don't know yet. Or even teal and gold. What do yall think???

This is really my second board, which I created after we picked our date and it ended up being Sept. 6, a Fall month. Which we are not going for a Fall theme. I think it is over done.

 This was my 1st wedding board, thinking we were going to get married in the spring. This board has a mixture of different ideas than my 2nd. Here you see Alice in Wonderland, beach, country, and a little modern. 

I now put all my wedding ideas in my 2nd board.
I love to hear about your wedding ideas or thoughts. If you are married what tips do you have for planning? Also if you are on pinterest, please leave your link!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1.  My best quality is   that I am dependable. I am also a good listener, If you just need an ear I am here to listen. Also I always smiling and laughing!
2.  One of my less flattering qualities is  that when I am having other help me do a task they have to do it my way. Everything has to be cleaned and put up my way. It Can be rather annoying I am sure    .
3.  I'd rather be    photographing something crazy in the studio  .

4. Something I have been challenged with lately is   trying to get along with my Mom. We have different views on things and having the studio together can be a challenge in itself  .
5. I am looking forward to  Christmas and Curtis being here for Christmas. In Maine!! I never had a true white Christmas and I am so excited to get to spend it with my love .

6. A super random factoid about me is  I smell every thing, which is strange I know .

7.  I want to  dance and sing around a fire under the moon light!

Wow I haven't done one of these in a long time! So I thought to do one this lovely Friday! thank you The little things we do!

I am thinking of creating a wedding blog, when Curtis comes into town in Dec for Christmas. I am so excited for Christmas!!!
