Since posting this photo on my Instagram, I’ve been getting tons of questions about my sister’s wedding makeup I did on her! I’m really happy with the way it turned out. I thought it might be helpful to break down the look with some helpful tips and tricks that are especially great for any future brides out there.

Note: I’m self-taught, so imagine the look on my face when my sister asked me to do her wedding makeup. I was so nervous (Snapchat fam knows!) because I’m only used to doing my own makeup. When it comes to matching other …

You read the title right. Several months ago, I got an email from a man named Jordan. He told me that his wifey-to-be (Rachel) was a HUGE supporter of mine. He then went on to personally invite Stevie and I to their August 2016 wedding in Canada. Never in a million years did he think we would even see the email! My first reaction was, “OMG. This is so sweet!” My second thought was, “Why do I have this strong feeling in my heart that I need to be there?” It took us just a few minutes after reading it …

Fun Relationship Exercise Worth Trying!

We’re living in a world where it’s easier to quit on relationships instead of practicing new and exciting ways to strengthen them. Why is that? Maybe the solution is putting our phones down for an hour to actually discuss what’s going on. Maybe it’s taking the time on a busy day to simply stop, look your man in the eyes and say – I Love You babe. Maybe it’s both. In a fast-paced technology driven world I too forget to sometimes stop and smell the roses. Before I got married, Stevie and I decided to participate in a pre-marital program …

Hey everyone.. it’s ya boi Steveasy aka Sazan’s hubby Stevie. I’m the writer for this guest post on her blog today celebrating my wife and our 1 year anniversary coming up. She told me she has a surprise of her own for me on Sunday (our actual anniversary date) so I’m looking forward to that. Today I’m keeping it 100 so I’ll refrain from being too goofy…. Or at least I’ll try 😉

When Saz told me that I would be writing a blog post for her site I have to say that I wasn’t exactly thrilled. Writing is definitely …

IT’S ANNIVERSARY WEEK!!! Get ready for #StevieandSazan non-stop blog posts. It’s our one year so we’re celebrating big right now in Catalina Island. Our actual anniversary date isn’t until this coming Sunday May 8th, but I thought why not start the party with our wedding playlist and a cute little giveaway. 😉 As some of you may know, Stevie and I didn’t have bridesmaids or groomsmen since our wedding was so small and intimate, but I still wanted to give a special gift to my closest girls! That’s where Love Ophelia came into play! They have the most beautiful collection …

It’s wedding season (and almost my 1 year anniversary!) so today I felt inspired to share 10 things you didn’t know about my wedding day. For any future brides-to-be out there, sometimes the not-so-perfect things play into that perfect day.

Here’s what you didn’t see in our breathtaking wedding photos. The weather forecast projecting RAIN, the pounds of double-sided tape holding up my dress, a bloated belly, a very sore you-know-what from my Brazilian wax experience, and my personal favorite – a COLD SORE flare up on my upper lip the morning of the wedding. Yep, this totally happened to …

I can’t believe it was one year ago today when my sweet husband proposed to me. Time flies!!!! It feels like it was only yesterday. I never got the chance to share our engagement story so I knew today would be the perfect day.

Last year I spent time with Stevie’s family in Austin before going home for the holidays. He drove me to Dallas on the 22nd and mentioned he was going to stay with a friend that night before making the drive back to Austin. The next morning I got a call from him saying we should grab …
