beauty. fashion. life.
 

Hi loves!

 

Y’all can call me HK. Welcome to my life. Professionally, I am a makeup artist and hairstylist, so of course when you need a good lipstick recommendation-- I got you boo. But this is so much more than that. 

 

My real passion lies in helping girls. Think of me like that big sister you never had, or like the friend you go to when you need dude advice, or just that drunk girl in the bathroom at the bar who is there to be your hype squad for a min. That's me. That's our community. 

I am here to teach you how to be the best version of you. Not just in the physical sense, but how to truly feel your best. How to have the confidence to look in the mirror and believe you are the baddest bitch on the block.  This is my space to give away all of my secrets and hopefully pick up a few from y’all along the way as well! 

"beauty attracts the eye but personality attracts the heart."

So, starting in late August, I noticed I wasn't as 'trim' as I like to be. Was I fat? No. Was I unhappy with my body? Not at all. Were my clothes not fitting? Not really. But was I getting to the point where I felt like I wasn't wearing certain things in my closet because of the way they were fitting or how they looked on me (ex: I was reaching for dresses instead of shorts because I felt like it was more flattering at the time). Make sense? So I made a few small changes, and those extra pounds literally fell off. 

MY WEIGHT HISTORY

(personally, I think this is impor...

We're back again y'all! With a bigger, badder Q+A than ever before. Y'all really seem to dig these and I am forever thankful that you do. Nothing is cooler to me than actually having y'all confide in me and turn to me with relationship or life advice. Feel free to read part 1 and part 2 here. 

Now, I will be the first to admit that I don't exactly have all of my shit together when it comes to dudes. Do I have my own guy issues now and again? UM, DUH. But I think the way I process things mixed with the amount of fuckboys I have dealt with in life has given me the rig...

Hands down one of my most asked questions is "How do you edit your photos?" I think most people are surprised to know that the majority of my pictures are taken on my iPhone. I personally find it easiest to do all of the editing and photo taking from my phone (who honestly wants to lug around a camera?) but there's a few key things I do and use to take my cell pictures up a notch and make them really pop and I'm here to show you how it's done!

A FEW THINGS BEFORE WE GET INTO IT:

Do yourself a favor before you get into editing: make sure you're taking a good pic. Alwa...

I love Nashville. Literally my favorite city. It’s full of a ton of great things to do and see. Over and over and over again people DM me for what to do in Nashville (have y’all ever heard of TripAdvisor?) and I ramble off a thousand things to do in Nashville to have an awesome trip, what do y’all do? The exact opposite of what I say. I scroll through Insta after y’alls trips and I see the same exact thing— the only time y’all ventured off broadway is to pedal party your way down to take pics with the wings in The Gulch.

So let’s use some reverse psychology here...

SO, y’all really liked my last blog post on dudes. Like REALLY. So much so that I had more questions and messages than ever. I’ve decided that I’m really going to try to commit to doing this once a month for y’all.

To spice it up a little, I’ve added some input from guys in this one— so you can hear it straight from the horses mouth.

Let’s jump right into it:

Q+A
Q: How do I respond when guys ask what I’m looking for? I want to let them know I’m into it without being pushy.
A: We’ve all been to Target right? You walk in with the intention of buying something b...

OK so we’re talking about being attractive here. These are the things that you need to do to help yourself look more attractive to the opposite sex. Some of these things are cosmetic, things some of these things are things you can wear, and some of these things are just things that you can do while you’re in the presence of someone who you want to appear more attractive in front of.


Whether you’re trying to get the attention of someone that you like or you’re just trying to get a couple free drinks at the bar tonight these are some for proof ways to make you look...

SO. I won't call myself an expert on guys but... I'm pretty damn close. Why? Because I'm basically a dude. My friends (girls and guys alike) would probably agree. When it comes to the way I think and how I act in "relationships" and dating, I am 100% guy (but most guys I've 'dated' probably didn't know to what degree exactly). 

I'm here to teach you my ways, young grasshopper. To help you learn to play their game better than they can. Because honestly, it's too easy. 

Before we get started, there are some key things you need to remember:

1. Guys are fucking stupid. Ye...

Listen: Valentines Day can be really hard.

It marks the end of cuffing season. You were either successful or you weren’t. This is that time when you could very well be taking the big “what are we?” Question head on, dropping an I love you, or maybe popping the question.

Last year on Valentine's Day, I had been seeing a guy for about two months. This guy was awesome. He had been on the show The Bachelorette (yep, that one), so we'll call him Bachelor Bob (this is not his real name). We both got along with (and had a blast with) each others friends. We had met each o...

You know the nicest compliment in the world to me?

Having someone say they "love my attitude."

Honestly, the most flattered I have ever been in my life is when I filmed a pilot for a reality show with my old co-workers at Guns & Oil Beer Co and during interviews, the producers told me that in separate interviews my co-workers almost all described me as being "able to change the energy in a room when I walk in."

...UM, that is dope as hell

I wasn't always like this. I used to have terrible self-esteem. I was anxious, and nervous, and constantly second guessing mysel...

MY FIRST TIME & WHY I STARTED:

Following my breast augmentation, at one of my check ups, my physician pointed out that I had a prominent line forming across my forehead from raising my eyebrows. She said, "You know we can fix that, right?" 

Well, yes, I knew that, but I was only 26 at the time. 

Botox was something I had taken an interest in after having a facial in Houston:

My facialist had gorgeous skin and in my opinion didn't look older than maybe mid-thirties. She mentioned how her children were in high school and college, and I (in shock) had to ask how old she w...
