YOU GUYS! I have the makeover pics!


Wanna see the makeover?


Holy. Freaking. Moly.


Remember how, thanx to your votes, Emily is our big winner? WELL, Christie Somers began to work her magic with hair and makeup while the lovely Wendy of Blue Lily Photography snapped away. Nummy cupcakes from The Sweet Tooth Fairy sweetened up the whole thing. Emily is seriously deeelightful and I hear she spent the whole week giddy with excitement! BAA! Can't you see her happiness in the pics?

Here she is before:













Doesn't she look awesome!?!

(let me save you an email by reminding you: hair and makeup by Christie Somers and photos by Blue Lily)
