Do you ever get off the phone with a friend and realize you were the one that was talking the whole time?
Sometimes that’s what blogging feels like. I mean I get the feedback in the comments (which I relish) but sometimes I just feel like it’s all about me all the time and I wanna hear more about you!
That is what I love so much about events like The Pinners Conference.
Last year I had no idea what to expect so I didn’t have any idea how much I would love it. But once it got started I was thrilled, I got to spend time with so many readers! It really felt like a reunion or something and completely reinforced my idea that everyone who follows this blog is really and truly a friend.
We just get each other.
And the coolest thing is it’s women of all walks of life of so many ages and in so many different stages in their lives yet they are all warm, kind and intelligent Just a pleasure to spend time with.
So if you live in the SLC area I would LOVE to meet you (and possibly try some makeup on ya. Last year I did IIID Foundation samplings on people all day, I haven’t quite worked out the kinks – with the newborn – but I plan to do as much makeup as is humanly possible while I’m there!)
I know you are all busy but if you can possibly attend it will be so worth it! There are so many amazing ladies there with a ton of great information to share!
Mandi (from Vintage Revivals), The Dating Divas, The Six Sisters and soooooo many more (check out the speakers list here) The classes have a fee but the expo is free!

Another amazing class (which I’m dying to attend) will be taught by my girl Jessica Janae on Photography. So I thought it would only be appropriate that I post her before and after today as well. This girl is amazing. When I first found her photography I fell in love and was so nervous for our first photo-shoot because she’s kind of a big deal and I was sure I’d be totally intimidated. As soon as I met her I was so relieved by how funny and laid back she is. Not to mention beautiful! She belongs on both sides of that camera!
One day during a shoot we were doing together she said something about going on a date with her husband (a much needed night out she has 2 under 2 at home!) I insisted she let me make her over and she requested The Victoria’s Secret Treatment. My speciality:)
PS How crazy good is her hair!?
