From beautiful hand lettered stationary and trendy party decorations to must-have summer reading lists and absolutely delish cocktail and brunch recipes Lauren Conrad has built a brand and business around encouraging Millennial ladies (and really- every one else) to really live the good life and to look and feel fabulous while doing it!!

 

She and the incredibly creative and fashionable team at Paper Crown have release a line of really beautiful bridesmaids dresses. While I would be more than happy to wear any of these whimsical dresses as one of my besties walked down the aisle I would also be more than happy to wear these so many other places too!! Hello flowing festival flowers?! Why, yes please dinner out on the town!!!!

Brenda 1

Although it doesn’t come up to often out here in Las Vegas, just about everyone, every where in the wedding industry knows the old adage that “rain on your wedding day means good luck and blessings for a happy marriage”.  While it is a sweet idea and and a way to see the silver lining in a soggy situation, it can be hard to convince couples that wake up on the morning of their weddings to rain and thunder that all will work out perfect.

That was the situation that Brenda and Jonny started their wedding day with, but these two love birds were completely unfazed and you could feel the electric excitement as the both of them prepared for their wedding at breath taking Legends Ranch.

Brenda had an elegant rustic vision for her day, inspired by the rustic minimalism of herbs and potted plants, and knew that she wanted her wedding party in boots!! With the help and guidance of the INCREDIBLY talented Weddings and Events by Emily her ideas became a stunning reality that even a spring thunder storm couldn’t damper.

Brow 1

Ever since the world figured out just how important eyebrows are as a facial feature (spoiler alert: very important, they can make or break you), they’ve been a constantly trending topic, as evidenced by the countless brow products on the market, the fact that the term “on fleek” exists, and Google’s top searches of 2015.

Recently, the Google UK team pulled worldwide results of the top-searched celebrity eyebrows, and not surprisingly, Cara Delevigne‘s flawless set ranked at the very top of the list. Kim Kardashian came in at the second spot, followed by Kylie Jenner, beating out her sister Kendall, who landed in eighth place.

Perhaps the most surprising result was Justin Bieber, who came in as the seventh most-searched set of arches. He probably doesn’t want anyone thinking he still cares, but it’s pretty clear that he’s loving himself—or at the very least, the way his groomed brows look.

 

 

 

Check out the full list in order below, no judgments if a few have a regular spot in your search history.

1. Cara Delevingne
2. Kim Kardashian
3. Kylie Jenner
4. Lily Collins
5. Megan Fox
6. Rihanna
7. Justin Bieber

Let’s Talk About Sun Screen!

Let’s start this conversation off with the topic of SPF, because we already know those UVA/UVB rays are going to be changing they way we pretty much do everything. So, to be pretty blunt, use it!

1. Choose the right sunscreen. This involves a few different factors, so let’s break it down right away for you.

  • Remember what that SPF number means: it tells you how long you can stay in the sun without getting burned. An SPF of 15 means that you can be in the sun for fifteen times longer without burning than you’d be able to without sunscreen. If you’re planning on being outside for hours, a higher SPF may be appropriate.
  • But, slapping on an SPF 60 once in the morning doesn’t mean you’re protected for the rest of the day. Sunscreens wear off surprisingly fast, even faster if you come in contact with water. Even most high quality waterproof sunscreens only have a resiliency for about 80 minutes, and that’s without toweling off. To play it safe, reapply often and take breaks from direct sunlight. Remember, sunscreen can only protect you from sun damage, it can’t reverse any damage already done. If you get burnt, you’re burnt.
  • sun screen 3But a good SPF isn’t the only thing you need to look for—you need to make sure that your sunscreen of choice offers broad spectrum protection. This means it’s going to protect you from both UVB rays (which cause burning) and the deeper-penetrating UVA rays (which cause premature aging, fine lines, and can cause skin cancer). Reach for a sunscreen like La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra Light Suncreen Fluid that blocks both UVA/UVB rays, and go for physical sunscreens if you’re sensitive to chemicals.

2. Apply generously. Wearing sunscreen is a great start, but it won’t live up to its sun protection potential if you’re not putting enough on. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends following the “one ounce, enough to fill a shot glass” rule. That means applying as much sunscreen as would fit into a shot glass over every exposed part of your body. This will tell how long your tube of sunscreen will last—hint, probably not the entire summer.

3. Don’t lean on clothes for protection. Covering up is a great added measure of protection, but experts say that an average tee only provides an SPF of about 8. Pretty slim, right? Load up on the sunscreen before covering up with clothes, whether tha be linen or board shorts.

4. Don’t miss those hard-to-reach or easily forgotten spots, like your ears, behind your knees, the tops of your feet, and even your scalp. If it’s exposed, it’s getting some love from the sun.

A few weeks ago the always delightful and endlessly talented Kristen Joy asked us to participate in a romantic styled shoot at Hidden Ranch.

The Makeup In The 702 team absolutely loves working with Kristen (See our last collaboration here) !! She pulls together the most notable and gifted vendors in the Las Vegas wedding industry and we know the incredible quality images she is able to capture. When Kristen Joy asks, we MUST oblige!!

Even though the soft lighting and beautiful blooms make it look like a lovely spring garden wedding, it was an unusually cold and blustry day in Las Vegas during this shoot. The models were absolute champs and made it work in the most wonderful way! We are beyond delighted with how strikingly romantic these images turned out!!!
