You are beautiful!
You amaze me at your ability to pull of things like alien-baby hairstyles.
You should do a How To-sday of that hairstyle. =) And I can’t believe that dress is vintage. Great find!
Mmmm, I think I like this post a lot! Also, I thought you looked wonderful at the wedding! 🙂
Gin + Candy + a Hair Pouf = awesome! I like this look on you!
