mondays with mark: makeup in 10 minutes

LOL ok this is probably the only close up of me. (one that I could find anyway) I'm laughing at how serious my facial expression is. In this picture I was reading something on the wall at Boone Hall Plantation. More trip pics to come!

I went on vacation for my 25th birthday to Charleston, SC. Makeup on the road for me has to be fast. In Charleston it is hoooottttt and humid. Humidity kills me. I think of makeup sweating off and hair is flat. I do not even want to try to curl my hair. It goes flat within seconds of stepping out. My makeup has to be water proof or it will all sweat away. My makeup is what I want to discuss. Vacay makeup!

This is important because:

1. For me- massive haul of makeup is not necessary.
2. Take what is appropriate. I was going to a humid place and would be on the go, touring and site seeing all day long. I was not going to any glam events so it did not make much sense to bring out all the glitz and glam colors.
3. We were on a time crunch/schedule. Time did not allow me to stay in front of the mirror.

Here is what was in my makeup bag for vacay:

1. Tinted Moisturizer- it had spf 15 and its so fast to apply. (Mark)
2. Water proof mascara- Mark
3. Mark flip for it- Urban Neutrals
4. Concealer- not mark, but not sure what brand sry!
5. NARS blush in Orgasm
6. Lip gloss- Mark Juice gems in mango tango

What do you take on vacation?

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Tips on taking a toddler to Disney World

I got some funny looks when I told people we were taking Haylee to Disney. I know some would say she is too small among many other things, however we did it! Did we get lucky? Maybe! She was the perfect age to ride the rides and meet the characters. Some people thought Disney would not have small rides for children, but maybe surprised that it's the best place for toddlers! The trip was so worth it! Haylee smiled and laughed the entire time. We made so many great memories and we can't wait to go back! If you're here to read all the details on how or what we did at Disney World then stick around!
What we packed:

-Disney clothes. We made our own shirts for the trip. Haylee wore a shirt with Minnie Ears and her monogram. It cost us only $12.  I also bought our Mickey ears from the Disney Store Outlet at the mall on sale for $7! They are around $20 at the parks. You could also purchase Disney character shirts at your local retail store. Buying shirts at Disney World can run y…
