Apologies for the radio silence on G&J, you guys!
If you follow me on Snapchat then you know I was out of town MDW and had an extra short work week taking Friday off to kick off the Bagwell’s wedding weekend. Needless to say, I’ve been playing catch up.
After many months of planning and partying, we finally got our girl married this past weekend! I have to admit, I feel a little bittersweet about it. I’m so overjoyed for the happy couple (they’re literally perfect) but I’m going to miss all the festivities which served as good excuses for us to get together…and for Morgan to fly in from Boston. 😉
We prepped for the weekend by getting spray tans and mani/pedi’s. I tried a new-to-me wax studio where CC literally gave my eyebrows a new life – I highly recommend! Saturday morning we all woke up as giddy as could be to get our hair and make up done at Glow Dry. It was so nice not having to fuss over my own hair and make up; we were able to enjoy each other’s company while simultaneously getting pampered. ‘Twas a perfect Saturday.
To keep our looks fresh throughout pictures and the ceremony, we packed a handful of products for easy touch ups – here are a few of our faves…
Glow Dry exclusively uses Oribe products and by the end of your blowout it’s kind of hard not to purchase a product to take home with you. You’re practically drunk on the scent alone. Ally and I both picked up Oribe’s Superfine Hairspray to keep our freshly styled curls and braids in tact.

Not that we needed new lipstick but Stacey, Morgan and I hit up Nordstrom on Friday to pick up a new shade for our dresses. Stacey chose Chanel’s Double Intensite in Light Rose and I chose NARS Funny Face. Both totally different shades but we couldn’t have been happier with our purchases. I love the bright pigment and smooth application I got from my NARS tube. Stacey couldn’t quit raving about the staying power of her Chanel stain/gloss duo. She hardly had to reapply between all of the coffees and champagnes consumed.
Little Barn Apothecary, a local brand that I’ve been meaning to try just so happened to be sold at the wax place I went to on Thursday. I took it as a sign and purchased one of their facial mists – Bamboo + Fresh Mint Clearing Mist – which I quickly became addicted to. Bamboo has natural silica which helps brighten your skin and combat shininess.
Wedding season is the perfect time to restock your beauty cabinet – hope this post inspired you to try some new products!
