Andi and Alex - All the Pictures! {photographed for YOU Magazine}

I have recently had the great pleasure of working with Andi and Alex Peot, twin sisters and singer/songwriters from the Green Bay area and a duo who auditioned with thousands of other hopefuls around the US, and made it as contestants on NBC's The Voice. They had an incredible experience on the show, mentored by Adam Levine from Maroon 5, and have some awesome stories to share. You'll have to pick up your own copy of YOU magazine to read more about it! ;)

I had such a lovely time with these girls, true glowing little spirits with happiness that just pours out of them, making me feel completely at home. It was an honor and a blast to work with them. 

I styled the girls in clothes from Besselli here in Green Bay and my favorite hair stylist, Victoria Stencil at Salon 54, help me brainstorm hair and makeup ideas to match their looks. Andi and Alex began in Coachella inspired bellbottoms, midriffs, embroidery and breezy dresses, with the 70's as a major influencer. 

All in all, this was just a fabulous afternoon and a shoot that has certainly taken the cake for me! Most favorite to date, for sure. But how can it not be, as these ladies are just absolutely stunning to style and are a joy to be around. Thank you girls! 

We'll take a look at these groovy music fest ready ensembles for now and I'll be sharing their second look soon! First up, Alex. 

And next, Andi!

And together! The shot that made the cover.

Birthday Girl!

This little lady turned 3 today. She spent much of it in my arms as her tummy was not feeling well, so I'm sharing some recent pics that we took outside, at a moment when she was feeling great. On this evening her and little E were eating watermelon and riding bikes. We'll get more birthday pics at her party next weekend and those will be all sorts of cute, I'm sure. 
These were taken today, all glassy eyes and sad face. I was trying to get her to take a picture in her birthday hat. Quite an effort too ... but I finally won in the end with a promise to take her and her baby doll on a walk in the stroller. She talked the entire time, not even kidding. Such a chatty lady these days!

Mother's Day Gifts {with Uncommon Goods}

I'm so excited to share a few lovely Mother's Day gifts that we recently received from Uncommon Goods. I am a fan of this company and we've loved their wine bottle cork candles for creating ambience at the Thanksgiving table each year, so I was happy to check out their specially curated Mother's Day gift lists and see what beautiful things they were offering for this special mama day.

This is a store that offers unique products and gifts and is the perfect place to find something really special for a mom. They call themselves " ... an online marketplace where they can connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods..." I love that! Half of what they sell is made by hand and with every purchase you make, you can donate $1 to a non-profit of your choice. You really need to check them out.
We received this incredible recycled Kantha table runner. I've always wanted to buy a Kantha quilt and so jumped at the chance to grab this piece. Each vibrant piece of fabric is unique in color and design and the back side is completely different too. They are sewn by using the kantha stitching technique, handmade in India. 
Our other gift is this incredible succulent living wall planter kit which came with all these tiny succulent clippings, carefully wrapped, and a rustic wood frame with a layer of moss and mesh. There were instructions included and Scarlet and I carefully built our own little garden together. It was super easy and the effect is so spring-y and lovely. This kit allows you to hang it on the wall once the succulents have rooted into the soil which I thought was a great idea. Can't wait to put it up! 

As you can see, we had loads of fun taking pictures of these cute little plants. 
This post is in collaboration with Uncommon Goods but the review and opinions are entirely my own.
