Answers to Emails + More Pics!

Photos are by my friend Rhyanne Ketron

Blogger was acting up yesterday and so I didn't get to put the remaining 6 photos up. If you aren't sick of seeing us already, take a looksy! If you are, you may want to skim down the page, haha!

And end photos.

M'kay, let me go ahead and put this out there: I am the world’s worst with replying to email. A definite shortcoming as a blogger, that’s for sure. So I’m tackling a few questions today that I’ve received via email in the past few weeks!

If you asked a question and never got an answer (again, so sorry!), yours may be featured:

“Where did you get your yellow shoes from the engagement pics post?”- I got them from Aldo last year for the Celebrate Magazine interview. I love, love, love ‘em, but they are HARD to walk in!

“Where did you get your dress from the engagement post?”- I got it last year from Ruche! I somehow was lucky enough to order the last Small they had in stock. Obviously, the fashion gods were on my side that day ; )

“What kind of cut is your engagement ring?”- Emerald, my fav! I prefer emerald and brilliant cuts for their clean lines and chic look, but I never told S that. Guess he just knew my taste well!

“Does your fiancé have a brother? I’m single!”- I laughed so hard when I got this email! My fiancé has not one, but TWO brothers, in fact! One lives in St. Louis with his lovely wife and brand new baby and the other is engaged to be wed next year : ) Sorry girls!

“Are you using a wedding planner?”- We are actually planning this whole shebang on our own; we are Type A to the max, so planning things is a cinch. We’ve also gotten loads of help from friends (like Rhyanne) and family members in the whole wedding planning process.

“What style is your wedding dress? I’m built like you and was wondering what you think looks best?”- I don’t want to disclose a lot about my dress since S does read this blog : ) But I will say, it’s got a VERY long train, is form-fitting through the torso and hips and is somewhat reminiscent of Kate Middleton’s second dress on her wedding day : ) I’m built very straight up and down with a somewhat petite frame, except for my booty- it’s on the bubbly side, ha! I chose something that wouldn’t overwhelm my body and would allow the curves that I do have to show!

“What kind of highlights does your hairdresser do?”- My hairstylist Jennifer uses a mix of very light baby blonde with a few low lights in a darker, more neutral blonde. We used a picture of Carrie Underwood as inspiration last time, I think. I usually have her do mine in more ash tones, since my hair is naturally pretty red and tends to pull gold if I do warmer tones.

“What kind of hair care products do you use, (Flat iron, curling iron, shampoo, etc.)?”- It takes a small arsenal of hair care supplies to tame my wild strands, haha. Here’s the rundown:

Shampoo- Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo & Rusk Sensory Shampoo for keeping brassiness at bay

Conditioner- Bumble and Bumble Super Rich Conditioner

Hairspray- Redken Forceful 23

Smoothing Serum- CHI brand Smoothing Serum

Flat Iron- CHI, the Original

Curling Iron- Hot Tools Gold 1 ½ inch barreled curling iron

Hope that helps knock out some of the questions y’all have asked lately! Honestly, the best way to connect with me is on Twitter, as it stays up on my desktop at work all throughout my workday. Hit me up and we’ll talk!

Be blessed, lovelies-
