updo me

Dress from H&M   Shoes from Guess   Ring from H&M
I am a HUGE fan of birthday parties. Especially surprise birthday parties. Going to sound like a huge sap, but there is no better feeling than seeing someone cry from happiness (downside: weeping occurs on both sides, so waterproof mascara is my best friend). That pretty much sums up our la la lovely Friday night. Full of balloons, cake, a candy bar, delicious food, family & friends, and of course a very shocked birthday gall.

And what surprise party is complete without dancing! Oh boy was I glad my hair was up. After the night was over, and I was nursing my poor feet back to health, my hair was still in tip top shape. A few bobby pins, some hairspray, and even a night of dancing my bum off didn't cause any damage. Lesson learned, updo's are a definite do! Them ladies on the red carpet sure know what they're doing!

PS. Completely unrelated, but does anyone else feel like they get a complete leg workout when trying to pee in heels?

Love the updo! Any interest in doing a tutorial for us hairstyle-challenge ladies out there? :)

Katya said...

I love how you've got your hair up in these pictures! You look so chique ^^ I'm glad to hear you had a great night and yes, it's really uncomfortable using the bathroom in heels... x

Katya said...

Ha! I totally know what you mean about the leg workout (especially if you hover and squat without sitting)

Katya said...

Love your hair-do!

Katya said...

Your dress is so pretty! Surprise parties are so fun :)

Katya said...

Sounds like fun :) and yes peeing in heels is a challenge on those quads. I love the lace on this dress!! -Rachel (adistinctstyle.blogspot.com)

Katya said...

Love, love, love everything about this. So pretty!

Katya said...

You crack me up! Every time I read your posts I get so tickled and can totally relate to what you're saying. 1) you are looking fab in this dress and heels. 2) I am updo-challenged and am SO impressed with this hair you did! It take about 50 bobby pins and I still have to use hair elastic to keep my hair 'up' like that. sigh. Love this post!

Also, thanks for always leaving such amazingly sweet, motivating, and sincere comments on my blog. Much appreciated, it's always nice to get comments from other bloggers I admire SO much!! :)

You look simply beautiful! And YES, i totally know what you mean with the whole peeing in heels things! I dont even feel like I have to do any exercise the rest of the day... I got it done!

Katya said...

You are hilarious by the way. I usually coat the seat in toilet paper but now that I think about it it's more so a waste of toilet paper...and there's no problem with a leg workout. Yes. It is a huge leg work out to pee in heels btw! haha! OR in the woods while camping. Same principal.

I love this dress! I can't believe you wore this to a night out dancing! I am such a clutz that if I wore this I'd need to drink from a sippy cup.

Katya said...

You are adorable and hilarious. And yes, my legs kill after I pee.

Katya said...

Totally agree that surprise parties rule! It somehow makes the party 100 times better. Also, that dress is stellar! I love, love, loooove it!

Katya said...

I've only been to a couple surprise parties but yes, they are the best. This outfit is lovely, the hair is pretty much perfect for a birthday party.

Katya said...

I've told you already, but i'll say it again, that is such a lovely up-do. You look gorgeous.

Katya said...

Updos really are the best! Gorgeous dress. I've been lusting after a white lace number for ages :)

I am completely incapable of doing my hair by myself. Did you do your hair by yourself? I am so impressed by that. Love your dress too!

Katya said...

I will definitely do one soon!

Katya said...

Squatting is my legs worst enemy! Haha ;)

Katya said...

Thanks so much Michelle! They're so much fun too!

Katya said...

Sarah you rock! <3

I think I'm going to do a tutorial on this hair! It was so simple to do, yet it looks so complicated. Promise, I'm super challenged too, if I can do it you can definitely do it!

Katya said...

Haha Courtney, 'peeing in the woods while camping' - you would ;)

OH and the next best thing to a sippy cup are drinks that have no color to them. Usually they involve seven-up or soda water!

Katya said...

Thank you oh so much! Making me blush over here!

Katya said...

I did! I'm thinking of doing a tutorial on this look, what do you think? It's so much simpler then it looks. I'm incredibly hair challenged and if I can do it, every gall out there definitely can!

Katya said...

hahahaha glad you understand!! yes, I totally agree!

Katya said...

Big fan of b-day parties too! I love this dress so much. Was this purchsed recently?

Katya said...

Love this look! Your hair is amazing.
