Kaley Cuoco Half Up Hairstyle

This hairstyle that Kaley Cuoco wore to the 2013 People’s Choice Awards was so beautiful I had to do a seperate post about it.  I just thought it looked absolutely gorgeous from every angle AND her soft romantic makeup and adorable hair comb were the perfect match for this soft romantic style.   LOVE IT!

Trend Alert- Designer Flower Headbands

Flower hair wreaths and headbands are all over the bridal message boards, bridal blogs and Pinterest and now designers and celebrities are getting on board.  These porcelain and enamel flower headbands by Dolce and Gabbanna are showing up everywhere.  But, in case you can’t afford the hefty $1400 price tag, I have found some more bridal appropriate and affordable options on Etsy!   Enjoy!

Favorite Hair and Makeup from the 2013 Golden Globes

By far the biggest trend on the Golden Globe red carpet was vintage (which I LOVE)!  There was also some fun messy styles, some popular top knots and as always lots of all down sexy looks.  I have picked my favorite and what I think are the most “bridal appropriate” looks of the evening.  Hope they inspire you!    ENJOY!

Beauty Looks from the 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Ok, so I have to be honest, I was truly disappointed with the hair and makeup (but especially the hair) at this year’s People’s Choice Awards.  I felt like all of the hair was either too simple, too messy or just looked kind of weird!  But, I did find a few looks that I thought really stood out, so, here are my favorites!    Enjoy!
