Weekend Update!

I feel like this past January was the longest month I have ever encountered. Was it just me or was the month 6 weeks long? Regardless, I think 2013 has been off to a great start with the exception of a few ups and downs. This past week, my grandmother had to undergo surgery, but thankfully everything turned out perfectly and she is expected a full recovery. She had surgery on Thursday night and my sister Natalie and I drove from Charlotte to go visit her. I am so glad we were able to go, I think it definitely brightened her day to see us. I know I am blessed to have all four living healthy grandparents - it is just so scary to see your grandparents suffer and see how worried my parents were too! This weekend was pretty uneventful, but it was still great for the 5 of us to be together. I love my family more than anything. 

I had planned on filming my January Beauty Favorites this weekend but obviously didn't have time. I am planing on filming that tonight so expect that soon! I have discovered so many great products this month! 

I have been LOVING my Sedu hair dryer I got a couple of weeks ago! I have not used hot tools on my hair ever since I got it, been taking my daily biotin and using mane n'tane. I really hope this is effective in growing my hair! I have been waiting till my hair air dries about 85% and then blow drying with a ceramic round brush

I am off to Miami in a couple of days for my first work trip of the year! We have been working on a new corporate video for over 3 months with a video producer and I finally recorded the voice over last Thursday! I am so excited to see the final product! Starbucks was of course needed.
