Behind the Scenes

Here on Bows & Sequins, you guys always see the “final look.” Sure, somedays I’m more put together than others, but besides the occasional outtake or Instagram photo, you rarely get a peek “behind the scenes.” I wrote a fun Blogger Prep article on Beauty High last week where I walk you through my hair and beauty routine for the summer months! Click here for the full tutorial. I’ve shared some of my favorite shots below… Enjoy!

Juicy Couture Perfume / Jose Eber Curling Wand / CHI Flatiron / Stila Petunia

Chloe Perfumes / Kate Spade Necklace / Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Repair Finishing Spray, Heat Protect Spray / J Mug / Diptique Patchouli Jar / Benefit Erase Paste / Kabuki Brush / DIY Flower Bowl

Juicy Couture Blazer (on sale!) & Shorts / NARS Orgasm BlushMirrored Aviators / NARS Laguna Bronzer / Stila Petunia / Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Repair Shampoo, Conditioner, Mask

Yeah, I have a bit of a problem. (That whole dresser is full of jewelry… Oops.)

PS – For the rest of my bedroom tour, click here! Those pictures were taken right after I got settled and a lot has changed since then. i.e. WAY too many things jammed into 100 square feet. This will be the last you see of this apartment because I’m moving to a bigger place (woo hoo!) in less than 2 weeks. I couldn’t be more excited to decorate! 🙂
