my arbonne life <3

Hey all. Well, what can I say? I have been loving my new studio and using all my vegan and vegan friendly products. The reason I got in to my Davines and Maria Nila Products all started when my mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer and I started to research products and their properties. Sulphates and paraben's are not good for your body and your bowel cannot break them down! I have IBS and am gluten free also so this really was a no brainer for me. Yes, they are slightly more expensive than some brands but I would rather invest in better products that I can not only use on myself but I can use on my clients too. The products are all sulphate, paraben free and cruelty free too. The more I think about it the more I understand why I have chosen to have my studio as my wee haven. I wouldn't want anyone to test products on my daughter or my wee cat Lola so why would I think it was okay for other poor defenceless animals to be tested on just so I can buy a cheaper product!? I just can't do it!  It is totally a personal journey I am on and I know it is not for everyone. After months of using the Davines and Maria Nila products I could really see the difference in my clients hair. I wanted to get into skin care and makeup too but didn't really know how. Well, this is when the universe sent me the lovely makeup artist Nicola O'Neill. She contacted me through my facebook page about the Arbonne range. She had thought it would be a great mix with what I was already doing in my studio and boy was she right. Not only has the skincare changed my face and made me feel amazing, the makeup is fabulous too. I invested in both packages and couldn't be happier with my decision. I became a consultant and this gave me discounts to buy further into the brand and I have now have a preferred client list. I would love to have more consultants come onto my team and start making money too. Not only are you using amazing products that are great for you, make you look and feel younger and amazing but it gives you the opportunity to build your own wee business. If you would like be become a preferred client and get discounts on your products rather than become an consultant you can do that too. Just send me a wee message. I will be holding an introduction to Arbonne on Tuesday 8th August from my studio. My sponsor and makeup artist Nicola O'Neill will be hosting it to introduce me to the company. Limited spaces available so if you would like to take part in my evening and learn more, please get in touch. I promise you guys will not be disappointed. Start thinking about what you put on your skin and how it can effect your health. We only get one go at this life and we should grab it with both hands. Love yourself and love your body. Sick of feeling sluggish and tired? Arbonne have an amazing healthy eating plan too. All vegan and gluten free, so nothing to annoy or upset your bowel or stomach! I am starting it tomorrow so will be keeping a record to see how I get on. Very excited for this next chapter in my life. Thank you for reading this if you took the time.

Lots of Love, Lynette xx

studio life

Okay, so you will all know me well enough by now to know the love I have for Shelley and Ricky from Ten21 Photography (dorky amounts), so when I decided to get my first ever headshots done for my new studio I chose their little faces and camera skills. Well, I was so over the moon with them I can't even cope. Not only are they amazing people but true professionals. Shelley made me feel so at ease and managed to capture my personality perfectly with her camera. The images of my studio totally exceeded my expectations and it was so lovely to have Shelley and Ricky's fresh eyes capture what is now my wee hair haven. 

If any of you out there are looking to get new head shots and update your old fussy images, please give Ten21Photography a shout. You will NOT be disappointed, I promise!! 

Love is in the air - xo

 Last year I had the honour of creating the lovely Georgia Pinks bridal hair for her and her beautiful bridal party. Georgia chose to get married in Larchfield Estate and everything about Georgia and Chris's wedding was stunning! Georgia went to The White Gallery in Newry and here she found her dream dress. All links are on the One Fab Day real life wedding feature.  Click this link and see for yourself how amazing Georgia and Chris's wedding really was!!! http://bit.ly/Larks-at-Larchfield

Georgia and Chris's wedding was captured by the fabulous  www.wedabelle.com I think you'll agree when you visit the links to both One Fab Day for their wedding feature and Wedabelle website that they truly rocked it!

On Wednesday 8th March, which just so happened to be International Women's Day, I got together with an amazing group of talented ladies and one lucky man, who was given the "honorary" woman title *giggles* to showcase Archive 12's beautiful bridal collections.

Claire the founder and owner of Archive 12 put together a beautiful shoot to capture her stunning unique range of bride and bridesmaid dresses and head pieces.

Kat Mervyn and her beautiful little daughter Juno (who may I say is a complete dote and stole the show with her cuteness) captured the collection with her creative photography skills and as always totally blew me away with her vision and ability to capture detail and light. Carl our "honorary" woman for the day runs his own cinematography business called Ball and Wolf. Not only was he an absolute delight to be around but his filming was stunning. I am super excited to see the end results from this shoot.

I got to work alongside hair & makeup artist Maria Gorman, I created the hair for the shoot and she did the makeup and I think you will agree when you see the final images that she totally rocked it! Maria's amazing at what she does and at only 22 she is one to watch out for. Claire chose the perfect model from IAM Models Agency, the beautiful Kamile. She was such a natural and great to work with. It really was a great day shooting.
