Getting the Right Fit & Feeling Great!

Today I’m going to be talking about something a little different… finding out the correct bra size. I have never been fitted for my bra size probably because it has always been a little bit embarrassing to me. I was always self conscious about it, so I guess I never wanted to talk about it with anyone or even attempt to get sized.

Yesterday I was able to attend one of Kohl’s bra fitting events close to where I live. As I walked into the bra section at Kohl’s, I saw a woman walking around with bras in hand and answering other people’s questions, so I knew she would be the right one to ask for help!

As she was measuring me, she suspected I was wearing the correct band size, but not the correct cup size. So she gave me what she thought would be the correct size… and asked me to try it on so she could see if it was the right fit. And you know what — it wasn’t embarrassing or scary at all. In fact, a bra has never fit so well (and in turn looked so good)!

Now that I felt confident about the size I was wearing, I shopped around to find my favorite styles! There were so many colors, styles and fits, I couldn’t believe it. I found five beautiful bras that fit well and make me feel great! And will be a great variety with any of the outfits I decide to wear.

Floral Pants + New Hair: Camille Albane Paris in Maple Grove

Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit a brand new salon in Maple Grove, MN, Camille Albane Paris. I was pretty tired from a night + day at the fair, so I grabbed my favorite “pj pants” for the appointment. I was scheduled for a balayage and a pedicure.

I have heard of balayage before but never considered asking for or getting this type of color in my hair. According to Vogue, balayage is defined as “a French coloring technique that was developed in the 1970s. It’s a freehand technique where the color is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques.”

Since this is a French salon in the US, I decided I absolutely had to give this French coloring technique a try! When I arrived, I was kindly welcomed by three employees and immediately offered something to drink…. water, coffee, etc. Since it was the morning, I asked for coffee and headed to sit down with my styist, Edie. She did such a wonderful job, I’m just so happy my hair is bright and blonde and it is all thanks to Edie!

The salon has modern look and feel, with all-white walls and stations, and relaxing music in the background. I was very impressed with the look, feel, relaxation and expertise at the salon. I have been going to the same salon since I moved up here, but I had such a great experience at Camille Albane Paris, I am definitely going to go back. The great thing about balayage is that the technique allows for less frequent visits to the salon, as the highlights look more natural, vs. giving a streaky look that can sometimes happen with foils.

One of the best part about their services is that at the end, they touch up your makeup! In case any water got on you and smeared your makeup, a little bit of powder, blush, mascara and lipgloss really helped touch up anything that got a little out of place during the appointment. Amazing, right?! That meant an immediate date when I got home because I was ready for some food and fun with my boyfriend! I of course had to take a selfie to document the new color and amazing curls Edie gave me:
