Pics & Commentary from the Bravo Real Housewives Live Tour!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another fun post.  I had the chance a few weeks ago to attend an awesome event - The Bravo  Real Housewives Tour.  Who here loves the Real Housewives series?  I do, I do!  This tour went to different cities around the country and it featured a panel discussion with some of our favorite Housewives from the hit Bravo series.  They came to Atlanta and my girls and I thought it would make a great girls night out.  We dressed up, I did some makeup and we had an awesome time.

Hi Bellas,

I hope you all had an amazing Halloween.  This year, I actually didn't dress up as any of the tutorials I mentioned (correction I was the mermaid on Monday, post to come!).  My costume was actually very last minute, lol, but I love how it came out and I totally represented for the Asians, lol.
