Where’s Mar?

My goodness! I have been MIA! The month of August was CRAZY BUSY for me and my sweet family.

The fasted re-cap ever…. ( in no special order)

Doss and Kim (brother and sister in laws) welcomed their TWIN baby girls into the world. Healthy and happy, both of the sweeties are at home with mom and dad. Sleepless nights here you guys come!

Bridal Season is basically here is AZ. I had 6 trails for hair and makeup with brides in August.. and I am so excited to work with all these lovely women. (Danielle, Kiley, Meaghan, Monique, Kia, and Shelley).

Had some fun Boudoir shoots with elan photographie…who then left me for the brownstones of Brooklyn. Karen, has been my bestie and partner in crime for the last 8 years. New York definitely won a gem with that move. Did I mention she had 5 going away parties.. one of which was featured on Junk in the Trunk blog.

Had a photo shoot with KT Jean designs. If you don’t know her work… KNOW IT! It was an honor to work on Katie on her fall collection shoot with Kym Ventola, of Ventola Photography. 

Worked with EMMA MAGAZINE on their September Issue. Makeup and Hair on Page 10, with the DIY hair clip. Makeup and Hair starting on page 34 for the FASHION high & low spread.  Styled by, Shelly Sazdanoff. Photographed by Charity Mauer Photography. 

Had family photos done by Charity! They turned out so fabulous. I was blessed by the lovely Arielle Roundeu of Chanel Cosmetics. I never get my makeup done, since I do makeup… It was so nice to have her pamper me!

Sophie, my 3.5 year old started back at pre-school and we started our homeschool co-op. She is now going 3 days to her preschool and we homeschool on mondays with the co-op. I am the overly involved mom at school, and chair every event. I LOVE It! The community and group of moms is so fun to be around.

Hank, my almost 1 year old, started WALKING! Where did my baby go?! Guess its time to start trying for our 3rd.  (wait, seriously?! yes.)

Was interviewed by Charity Mauer Photography… here.

My husband and I made a music video…. here. The banker, wrote the song after a blog we started following 40 days of dating. I suggest starting at day one and reading through to day 40. Good stuff.  Camera work and editing, the amazing Ryan Diggs.

My husband’s band Gospel Claws shot a music video for the Sons of Anarchy. It is on the FX website, and facebook page… here.

 

OKAY! Thats enough of the big stuff… Like I said, August was INSANE. I apologize for not staying up to date. I will most likely be sharing more on each topic in depth.. but here is the fast way to bring you up to speed.

Tom Ford Beauty Sneak Peak

Tom Ford Beauty Sneak Peak

I am so excited to share that Tom Ford Beauty is coming to Scottsdale! Neiman Marcus, Scottsdale, will be launching the FULL beauty line in store. NM Scottsdale will be the only store in AZ that you can find the full line at. Tom Ford is a legend in fashion. He has his degree in architecture. It makes sense that he broke into beauty. He understands symmetry and clean lines. This is a sneak peak ad from the Fall 2013 beauty line. I am loving the deep lip color and full smokey eye. Bringing the color all the way to the brow. Very smooth and flawless skin.
Neiman Marcus will be throwing a launch party for the line, be sure to check back, so you don’t miss it.
