This is new for me, this whole blogging thing. I've tried in the past, like really -really tried. [& pretty much failed] This year, I looked around and realized that for the first time I have the help I need to run the business properly. Basically this is the first time I've had enough help so that I can dedicate myself to our outreach efforts. Its a rather complicated story but I discovered that my lack of "realness" in our online presence really created a muddled client experience. In an effort to attract the right kind of bride & salon client; someone who jives with me, my girls and our mission -I've got to put myself out there a lot more. I've made a commitment to myself to tackle this blogging thing more consistently. With that long, drawn out explanation; I introduce my Friday Faves!
Basically this is my excuse to put random junk that I think is neat and sometimes [sometimes not] relevant. A random collection of things I've seen, liked and read. <3 enjoy. xA

This article struck me as the women interviewed were from a variety of backgrounds.Like this ladyboss, Jess Levin the founder of Carats & Cake, a stunning wedding resource that we've been featured on a few time!

5. A quick recap!
A quick recap of the goings ons of our blog this past week. We had a behind the scenes post, where we caught everyone up on our progress since reopening the salon. I shared some of our favorite winter weather beauty secrets. Madeline & Andrew said I do at the gorgeous Josephine Butler Park. Her retro look and cut out back was a show stopper. Plus her bridesmaids looks were to die for. Lastly, have you checked out our salon promotions? They end in just under 2 weeks so get them while they last!
