Aloha, its Alexa! This past weekend was my gymnastics awards banquet, and I’m going to show you how I got ready for it.
On Friday, I went to Ken’s Nails in Dublin, CA to get a mani/pedi. For my mani I got bright pink with small lemons, and my pedi I just did basic white. My inspiration for my mani was from this picture I found on Pinterest.
And here’s how my nails turned out…
The morning of the banquet, I woke up, did all the normal stuff (brush teeth, wash face, put lotion on, etc.), then I put my contacts in before I started to do my hair. For my hair I decided to curl it with my Beachwaver S1 Ceramic Rotating Curling Iron and styled it half up, half down .
Then for my dress I had a vote on Instagram and Facebook to help me choose from four Sally Miller dresses and the most popular vote was for #2.
It is a royal blue, halter top, skater dress that I thought was super cute. I’ve linked a few cute dress options below for a similar look. My shoes are small white wedge sandals that have a little silver on the straps and a tassel zip on the back.
Next, my mom helped me do some of my make-up like eye shadow, blush, and eye liner. I curled my eye lashes, put mascara, and some lip gloss. Finally, I put on my earring studs and a bracelet that my cousin gave me. Then I was ready to go!
If you want, check out this video I put together on my YouTube channel (Aloha Alexa) of me getting ready from getting my nails done to hair, make-up, and some photos from the banquet. Hope you like it. See you next time!!
