Grow, this is the name of the two day brand camp that was a game changer. This is the third event that I have attended orchestrated by the Tide creative team.
Day one was filled with Keynote speakers and uplifting speeches. We swapped stories, smiles and business cards.
Day two, smaller more intimate groups and in-depth topics from Pinterest to dream boards and digging deep to find out what and who you are.
My favorite badge I earned at camp was in Arts and crafts. A two hour water color lesson with the resident artist at Hidden Pond and the mixology class at Earth, not too shabby.
There is something to be said about walking into a room full of strangers and feeling like you belong. the one thing we all have in common is we all want to grow.
I am lucky enough to live in an area of the county with all four seasons. A lush green spring, summers that brings beach days and warm evenings and an Autumn with colors so vibrant it is breathtaking. Then, a frozen winter. In spite of the cold it is
still is a perfect time to get married.
Here are 5 beauty tips to help you stay flawless and rosy cheeked in a frosty wonderland.
Oh the weather outside is Frightful...
1. Reflect the Feeling of the Season
A rich red lip and a enhancing coppery shade of eye shadow is a beautiful way to embrace the chill, think a glass of red wine by a warm fire for inspiration. Scarlet Sparkle from Mirabella's Colour Vinyl collection is one of my favorites.
2. Focus on your eyes
A key trend for winter is defined eye make up. A romantic smoky eye is created with Youngblood Shanghai nights eyeshadow Quad. This gives a dramatic smoky look that is classic and perfect for wedding guests and the bride alike.
3. Cold, dry or snowflake filled weather can wreak havoc on your locks
To keep your hair remaining shiny and frizz-free start by prepping the hair with a serum before styling. A dot of the serum can even be smoothed throughout your 'do during the day, should any flyaways appear. I use Kenra's Shine Serum.
4. Fairytale inspired looks
with the focus on bold eyes and flawless, untanned skin this look is perfect for a winter wedding. To complete your own happily ever after, try channeling the Snow Queen, with a defined eye and a sparkle of a frosty gloss. My pick for lips, Lustre Color Luxe.
5. Nerves and a chill in the air can leave skin looking and feeling a little dull on your wedding day
keep your luminosity through the entirety of your day by using a highlighter to add a glow to your skin. I fell in love with Swirling Pearl Brilliant by Mirabella .
Baby it's cold outside! Almost year ago, my dear colleague was wed on a chilly January afternoon. The bride's maids wore fur wraps and they all had matching shearling boots to wear before the ceremony to keep their feet warm on the snow covered ground. There was an elegance to the gray sky against the soft fresh dewy bouquets and the flow of their blush gowns. I had collected bits and pieces about her day but, to see her whole wedding story put so perfectly together was Glamour and Gatsby, vintage mixed with modern, gilded and sparkling. At the end of the night this happened...
and that's why I love Winter Weddings-Dani
On a rainy Monday morning, my colleague and I traveled to Nashua, New Hampshire for a Brazilian Blow out class. The Educator just flew in from Michigan and right away I knew I was going to have to pay attention. Yes, there would be test at the end of the class to be certified. I sat up, started taking notes and learning a new skill.
The end result is smooth, healthy, frizz-free hair with radiant shine

The best part of this system is there is no processing time and when you leave the salon and can resume your life. In the past you had to wait to wash it or come back in a few days. With the Brazilian Blowout you can also put it up in a ponytail and go to the gym. Basically,live your life. The results were beautiful and honest. This service creates a smoothness in your hair and tackles frizz. I was hooked, I passed the test and bought the kit.
I liked this model's results.
Left side untreated, the right side finger dried with a blow dryer.
You can see it what it does with out the straightener, the round brushing and shine products. Another Positive to this system, you can customize for each client to keep the integrity of the hair in tact. You leave the salon with the recommended shampoo, conditioner and healthy hair.
I love the texture in my hair, I keep it short and a little wild. My Husband calls it "fast hair", as in I look like I was driving fast and my hair stayed that way.
I know I am in the minority, most woman want soft, silky, smooth hair and now I can give it to you-Dani

Mirabella was the first professional make up line I used in my bridal business. I enjoyed taking this class and learned about recently added products. I was not surprised on the focus of social media and how it is shaping the way brides are looking at planning. It is changing the way they are seeing themselves on their special day.
My new favorite product from the line is the CC Crème! This has amazing coverage and SPF. It makes your skin look flawless and the sunblock is the insurance to keep it that way. Using a foundation brush the coverage can have more of an airbrush quality in the finish.
We ended up with two looks, I was the "sophisticate" model and we also created a bohemian bride. Mirabella has really focused on how brides are using Pinterest to create a wedding story and makeup is a very important chapter.
The Boho Bride is warmer and earthy. the sweetness in the pink cheeks is polished and clean. This is my go to for brides that are not daily make up wearers or shy away from a "done up" look.
