It is a LLW kind a day!

Happy Lock Love Wednesday! I have been rocking a different part lately and loving my curls! It is fun having more length to work with. I started LLW to keep this hairstylist accountable. It is so easy to get in a hair rut and not style my own hair! I have fun sharing with you anything Hair related! Today, is Before + After day! Join with me below and link up and show off your styling techniques or beautiful hair! Follow me on Instagram @ talahairlife #locklovewed and #locklovewednesday 

Adorable Kierra's summer look! 

Her little sis' first cut! Briella!

My girl, Kim has amazing hair! I colored lots of coppers/golds and blondes through out to add depth and warmth to her bleach blonde! She is a babe!

 DEVA CURL! My word- I am obsessed with this line! The best product line I have ever used for curls! Natural ingredients. Enhances curl. Smells heavenly. Doesn't dry out the curl. PERFECT!!!!!!! 

Ginger's ombre! I love how shiny her hair is! I used a color glaze to add lots of gloss!!!!

Kati's new look for summer!!!!!

It is wedding season for me! I hit up Kansas City for my client/friend--- Katlyn's big day!!!!! I brought along Lindsay (old youth student/friend) I was a full circle moment for me, having her along working with me! I remember her dreaming of being a hair stylist in High School and here she is…. rockin' out updos with me! Love you LRT! Best road trip buddy! (pix of us getting Starbux before 15 updos!)
and P.S. KC is the best city ever! I loved everything about it! 

The bride!!!!!! 

 The bride with her sister! I have done their hair for 8 years now! :) 

 Love my job. Love that I get to be creative everyday! Love sharing every life with all of my clients!

Cass LIFE- weekly recap

It's been a great week for us! Celebrating Mothers Day, grilling, working lots, playing outside and getting lots done! We are forcing it to be Spring---- It has been crazy "cold" for MN this season! 

Found this gem of Zion with her buddies:  Lila and Sophia! Presh.

Zakiyah chilling with Grandma Beege. She lives in these sunnies from Caroline! Love her!

The GO CART is a hit on Dunlap Lane! 

Zion is all about giving us a show everyday- Dance party/ Ballet/ acting………. She is full of it!

These pix are taken on mothers day! WOW! I am so blessed. Motherhood is a crazy ride. I can't get over the guilt, the joy, the doubt, the lack of patience, the attempt to managing our schedule, the lists…. but at the end of the day…… all that matters is that I am doing my best. Loving Zion Leilani and Zakiyah Nova to the max. Affirming them. Hugging them. Believing in them. Providing a safe home and praying over them………. BLESSED.

My Z's

(Mike and Andy you made the blog. ha. ) I love the projects we have going on our land right now! Sooooooooo exciting. Love our woods! 

Started a fairy garden. Need I say more? 

cozy corner by the studio door :)

happy spring…. happy rug.

our monster climbing…..caught in action at The Gate!  

and in case you missed it….. we have a office/art room!

Oh My WORD!!!!!! I am in LOVE with our new office/art/creative space/ play room!!!!!! We are still fine tuning and finishing up details, but I just couldn't wait to show you! I am in love with the room! It is totally us! My hus nailed it with the desk!!!!!!!  

Here is the room when we moved in- 

Check here for more pictures of it when it was Zakiyah's room!

and now!!!!!!

Andy used butcher block for the counter/ the legs are from trees in our back yard! We still have to mount the peg board. ( I WILL POST MORE NEXT WEEK ON THE DETAILS ON EVERYTHING)

Something that is really important to me is having the room fit my family's needs, not just mine. I wanted a space for Andy to study (he is getting his masters), me to create, and the girls to have fun and play! This cart holds their stamps/coloring books etc. 

Zion (left) and Zakiyah at 6 months! Finally framed and up! 

The desk is big enough to have two chairs at it! 

( I spy some building going down on across the street!!!!!! ) 

What do you think? Do you love it as much as me?! Best mother's day gift ever! Thanks HUS! Now, come on over and create some art with me! 
Check back next week for the details on this space……..
