Before + Afters

I started Lock Lock Wednesday to get myself motivated to style my hair everyday. It is so easy, for even hair stylists to get in a rut with their hair. I am hoping to inspire you along the way with simple and fun techniques to help you look fabulous! Join me along the way. It will be fun! All you have to do is take snapshots of your hair during the week and link up with me below!  This week I am sharing with you a plethora of sorts, of pretty things. Hair and Beauty.

I am having fun showing you my Before + Afters from the studio this week! Above is Corrine-- We gave her hair dimension for fall/winter. Her hair bleached out quite a bit this summer, so we put in lots of weaved foils of a brown copper and blonde! I love how it turned out. 

 Amanda and I had a great time transforming her look! We did something super trendy right now----Silver/Gray BY CHOICE! I bleached her regrowth and toned her hair with a lovely pastel silver. I LOVE it so much. She knows how to rock this look! What do you think? Are you on the silver bandwagon? It was fun being creative with my dear friend!

Hot selfie she sent me rockin her look!

Olivia was up for change at Tala! We darkened her hair by 3-4 levels! I wanted to give her lots of depth and added a touch of warm tones to pop out her beautiful blue eyes. I cleaned up her hair length by making her layers more proportional with her face shape. I used a flat iron to curl her hair. i used moroccan oil and hairspray in her hair for shine and hold.

What a beautiful transformation!

Kid cut Tuesday! I got to cut my adorbs nephew and my BFF- Jody's girls yesterday. I trimmed up Zion's hair too! It was a fun day to say the least.

Jody made the girls these scarfs with fabric from her shoppe! 

I had the pleasure of coloring Katlin's hair this week too! I foiled in a natural looking caramel throughout her hair and painted a rich brown scalp to ends to give her hair dimension and depth. It is the perfect tones for a cooler season in Minnesota. I taught her how to fishtail braid her hair too!

 My fishtail yesterday and Katlin's! 

Feeling inspired? Do you have any fun looks that you have been rocking lately? Join me and link up below and share your hairstyles!

Bathroom REVEAL

I am so excited to share with you my Bathroom today! I have been dying to paint this room for months! I am a big fan of the blog, Vintage Revivals, and I saw this post on using triangles for a wall treatment and I knew that it belonged in my house! So……….. here is the before. 

typical beige painters paint. boring…..now…..

How amazing is this? I love it!!!!!! The triangles are the reflection in the mirror! 

I started out by painting the walls with "Mindful Gray" by Sherwin-Williams.

I decided to do one wall as a feature wall. My hus cut a triangle out of wood for me and wrapped it in fabric. We attached it with staples. I used a plate for the paint. I used a black Sherwin Williams paint for the triangle stamp. I used a laser level to go off of for a straight line. I measured 3-4 fingers in between each row. 

I love triangles and tribal stuff right now…….I am soooo happy with how it turned out! It is so fun and cheerful for a bathroom. 

 It is impossible to get a good overview shot of this small room, so I have lots of different angles for you! 

I freshened up the room with a pix of our family (Kanvess print of instagram) in a target frame. The flower vase is Crate n Barrel and the trays (soap/flower) are West Elm. My hand towel is TJ Maxx. I switch them out all the time. 

The girls cute stool is TJ Maxx.

The white shelf is Target Threshold series. The faux greens are Pier One. The canvas I made, and the doily is Anthropologie. The candle is my fav from Target. I love LAVENDER!!!! The room spray is homemade. 

I put scrapbook paper behind the print ;)

Wool rug from Target.

Basket is TJ Maxx 

 What do you think? I am chomping at painting more rooms! I love this! I am so excited every time I go in the divine room! Have you tried any stamp/stencils lately on walls? 

Happy Monday!

My Week

Happy Friday Y'all! Sharing with you today, some of my fav iphone pix from the week.......Linking up with Lauren and Jeanett.

We had the craziest week and I am celebrating that it is over! It was busy and great and all, but this mama needs a nap. My hus had seminary for 7 days this week, commuting 100 miles to get there. We had Minnesota Youth Convention here in Rochester with our youth group, an all nighter at the church for the teens (I stayed up until 6:30am), hosted my mother in law(who willlingly watched our girls :) and had Bible study with the teens, worked long hours, meetings etc......you catch my drift. busy. So coffee was my BFF, as usual.

My MIL surprised the girls with this amazing Ferarri for the girls (Christmas gift)! They are stoked!!!!! Its so cute! It is another example of me living out my childhood dreams through my girls :)

Youth Convention- the worship was outstanding! I love gathering with 4000 teens! talk about powerful! World Changers!

I love play dates! 
I love our church fam! 
My girls are sooooo blessed with little buddies- 
These girls were soooooooo presh playing in the leaves!

I posted this on instagram....... but it is cuteness overload. Everytime, I go and grab my 14 month old out of her crib, she hands me her lovies first. My perfect babe! (and look at those morning eyes)

I am experimenting with rearranging items in my home. I was stoked when I thought of putting my plant in the basket...... just a touch too big. bummer.  I am going to buy a bigger one though. Do you like?

I moved my console table to the living room. I am loving it in this corner. I am wanting to change up my art too. Do you see the pj pants? Ha

Last night, we celebrated my hus' 7 days of Intensives being over with a cozy dinner. {Pioneer Woman meatloaf, glazed carrots from my neighbor's garden, scalloped corn} and my hus surprised me with the purple roses and the girls with sunflowers! They are beautiful!

This is my 1/2 bathroom when we moved in.......Lets just say, there is a big reveal for you on Monday! It is amazing!!!!!! I have been painting away! Check back Monday for the reveal! 

Do you have any plans for the weekend? We are hitting up an adult costume party tonight! My hus is preaching Sunday at our church too- if you live in the Rochester area, Check out our church at 8, 9:30, 11 am. 

Happy Friday friends.
