Hello lovelies! Hope you all had an amazing weekend. Mine was certainly quite busy. On Friday, one of my closest friends had her baby about two weeks early so we went to visit her right after work. He's the most adorable little thing ever! Then on Saturday I went to another friends birthday which started in her apartment and ended on the dance floor at her favourite bar.

Now Saturday night was a super humid balmy night so I really didn't even want to wear makeup. But I did it anyway. I just went simple on the eyes and wore a bright lipstick a la Nars Heat Wave. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasures.

And I did a french braided updo for hair of the night. It could do with less fly-aways but it was way too humid for anything to hold sleek. The do itself held through all the drinking, dancing and jumping though, lol!

And here's a picture of me attempting to sit pretty in my friend's warm and over crowded apartment:

    Ev - thanks hun, I'm really getting into hair styling lately. And there are a tone of hair styles that actually look better with straight hair :)

    Arianne - thanks lady. I think my tan is helping hide my skin imperfection ;)
