Fireside

Firelight

Summer is coming to an end, just a couple of weekends to go, and this one is being spent relaxing by the fire with friends. Not looking forward to going back to work here in just another week, but the promise of future summers is always on my mind……

See styling notes, but I want to feature in this post from my sponsors – hair and nails. First up is my fantastic braided hairstyle from enVOGUE. This is “Lorelay” in light blondes. It’s a great chunky braid that goes down the back. Amazing details, and you can change the color of the bands on the ends of the braids to coordinate with your outfit via included HUD. I’m also wearing the CATWA hairbase V2 in light blonde also from enVOGUE to coordinate perfectly.
