Happily Ever Johnson: Wedding Day Hair

We are really getting down to the wire here!! It is starting to get a little stressful with the little details and making sure we have everything. I just can't wait until the big day! Everyone has been asking me what I plan on doing with my hair for the wedding. I knew I was not going to straighten it and was going to base my hair style from what my dress looked like. I also plan on doing my hair myself! Yes I know I could go to a salon and have it done professionally but I do my own hair anyway and have been really excited to try different styles. I know that I wanted some kind of updo and something that will go with the veil I am wearing. I tried out 3 different styles over the past couple of weeks.  This post is picture heavy so you may want to grab a snack. 

Hair Trial #1

For this style I was thinking on having big, curly hair in the front and the rest of my hair twisted. I had a time at first trying to figure out how to part my hair and how big to make the twist.

I also remixed this first style because the crazy weather destroyed the front of my hair and I retwisted the front of my hair and swooped it to the side. This is how I wore my hair for the bridal shower.

Hair Trial #2

For this style, I did the flat twist in the back again and did individual twist in the front. I figured that I had to part the twist in the back different and make them a little smaller than before. I couldn't decide how I wanted the front to look so I styled it three different ways. 

Hair Trial #3

This style I wanted to try something a little different. I added hair to this style and honestly didn't know where I was going with this one. I just kind of did it and liked how it turned out. I am currently over all these bobby pins in my hair lol!! 

I may try one more style before deciding on which one. The first two hairstyles took me about an hour to do and the last one took an hour and a half. I have been having so much fun with this and can't wait to show you guys which one I choose for the big day. Which style did you like the most? Comment below and let me know. Enjoy the rest of the week and see you guys Thursday!


~**Drea Notes**~

I tried the new Midnight Mint Mocha frap and Starbucks and I actually like it.

  2. I love them all! I can't wait to see what you choose!

    1. Thank you Elle! It will be a hard decision lol!

  3. I like the first one with the twisted front as well, the side swept style frames your face beautifully and with the veil on top, I think it would look great and will stay put all day til night hehehe! Thanks for sharing this, can't wait to see more!

  4. I love them all especially #3

  5. You rock them all, but I especially like the very last style. You'll be a beautiful bride no matter how you wear your hair.

  6. My favorite hair style is the one with you wearing the black/white striped dress or top.

    1. Everyone seems to like that one or the last style! Thank you Tanya!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
