I have not done a personal blog post in a LONG time.
It has been so busy with wedding and engagements I am just so pumped to share my amazing couples with you that I some times get put on the back burner.
I just wanted to take this time to share with you some thing that I have found the last couple of years that just WORK. I am always really excited to find something that fills a need or a want and it actually lives up to the hype . It frustrates me when I spend money on something that falls short. So here are a list of everyday things I have found that changed my life!
The Wet Brush - This is a simple hair brush. Now I know what you are thinking “Molly, did this really change your life??” And the answer is YES. I have always had thick hair on my head and majority of my life I have kept my hair style long. When I was a kid I have vivid memories of my Grandma Gertie brushing my hair while I sat there crying from the pain. That is not something that just leaves you. You know those circular hairbrushes? (Aka torture devices) Yeah, I had one day in my childhood where one had to be CUT out of one of my siblings hair. So a couple of years ago, my boss of all people told me that he found this brush for his daughters hair that works wonders. I went to my local target and bought one to give it a try. It is simple the most painless hairbrush I have ever used in my life. I will never buy a different brush again. You can use it with wet or dry hair and it will guild right through. It is a miracle worker.
Lipsense Lipstick - I have NEVER found a lipstick that lasted all day; I always had hopes of wearing the perfect color, looking glamorous but coming up short when I had to reapply what felt like every hour. I never wore lipstick because I felt like it was a waist of time and effort always wondering if it needs to be reapplied. Then along comes Lipsense. It was a friends recommendation and after seeing videos I gave it a try and fell in love….HARD. I bought several colors and all of them last ALL day long. I often look to see if I can find the colors I want for cheap since this is one of those things that consultants sell. But if you go on Facebook or Ebay you can find some for a good price. Colors I love - Mulled Wine, Redblue, and roseberry. No, I do not sell this product. I just am really excited I actually found something that works.
Eyesense Eyeshadow- This product is ALSO by the same company as lipsense. It stays on my eyes without any kind of primer and that is after running around sweating up a storm on an 8 hour wedding day. So in my book it is literally liquid gold.
Bzees Shoes - I found a pair of shoes on sale at DSW and my life has never been the same. They are called Bzees. Extremely light weight shoes that give me support and gives me the opportunity to focus on everything else BUT my feet. After 8 to 9 hour wedding days my feet are feeling great which in the wedding industry is like finding a magical unicorn and calling it Whinny. My very first wedding after college for my internship I wore a pair of dress flats that were well used and loved. After documenting a beautiful wedding, my feet were literally bleeding. I walked barefoot in the stress of Minneapolis to go catch my ride. I never again will abuse my poor feet that way. After finding this unicorn of a shoe wear, it didn’t take long until I ordered 3 other pair from this brand all different kinds and I am still in love. I found one pair of wedges and now I can have some height on wedding days which is a first in my life.
I borrowed images off of google. I in no way own them and I am not being paid for this post. I just wanted to spread the good news that there are things out there that work! Enjoy
