a monday minute : vasanti cosmetics love brights gel matte lipstick

December 15, 2014By stephanie

Just last week we posted about Vasanti Cosmetic’s new love brights gel matte lipstick. Needless to say, each of our contributors loved the new formula.
I was lucky enough to meet with the beautiful masterminds behind the brand, and I took a quick video about the design behind this new innovative bullet of colour.
I thought you might like to take a minute and here it straight from the brand’s mouth!



throwback : the faux bob …

December 2, 2014By stephanie

The other day – my middle child, Callum – turned six years old.

As with every passing birthday, regardless of any of my children’s age, I can’t help but feel nostalgic. And I sit here, after an awesome weekend of noisy screaming kids and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake, flipping through all his pictures from birth until just yesterday, and in my “woe is me, my child is getting too big to love his mommy” stupor, I found this video.

In this video, I was actually pregnant with Callum. And I was just starting BlushPretty as a full-time, full fledged, small business (I was birthing two babies!) and more importantly, just starting to dabble in the hair side of things (as you can see by my product choices).

While I uploaded it to YouTube just a few years ago, it was filmed the summer just before his birth, so I was maybe 4, 5 or 6 months pregnant with him. So crazy.

Anyhow, this video still seems relevant given that the wavy bob and lob has recently been thrusted into the spotlight again, thanks to Lauren Conrad.

So here’s to achieving on trend hair even if just for a day … and to a little boy whom
I love way too much.

Just wanted to share a cute little video from the talented Justin Borja
that features our roomies at 777, Flirt Custom Lash Studio.

If you look closely, you’ll see some of BlushPretty’s very own artistry team
dolling up the FCL team for their Fall Photoshoot.

We have way too much fun at our studio … too much!
