A Double Do's Day: Transformation Tuesday Testimonial with a Mug Shot Monday + Messydo Monday ft
It all started one day when Elizabeth May Passiales (aka Libby), decided she wanted to play sports. Literally... every single sport imaginable...
She turned out to be quite the athlete... playing anything from baseball (her rookie card above), soccer, basketball, running track, marathons, power lifting, to MMA fighting.... to tennis. Libby and I played basketball and soccer together, but it wasn't until we were doubles partners that our friendship really started to come alive. We went down in history and made a name for ourselves by the local newspapers, "the Cardiac Kids," because we gave everybody heart attacks when they watched us play. The number of times we had a 5-2 deficit, got in the opponents heads because they thought they had won, and came back to win, is too many to count. Teams hated playing us. We were annoying and never backed down, and we could handle pressure like no other.

I will never forget, though, the most epic match that trumps all. Conference championship my senior year, and Libby's junior year: playing against Naperville Central, a team we had played 4 times already that season and always won, but was always brutally close. We were the 1-seed. We had everything to lose and a target on our back. This team wanted to beat us, bad. Right off the bat, to put it lightly, we were playing like shhhi.... crap. We lost the first set quite rapidly. We could not get into a rhythm. Second set, we still couldn't hardly string two points together and got down 5-1. It was ugly. After surviving a few match points against us, and being so disgusted with our performance thus far, I'd had enough. I finally pulled Libby aside and said, "LIBBY, we are NOT losing this match." I knew if we got it to 5-2, the other team didn't stand a chance, and that is exactly what we did. We pulled out the 2nd set 7-5, and won the 3rd set 6-1 to win the conference championship. To this day, we still share that special bond and memory together, and we always will. There are few people who truly know me the way Libby does. We both hate to lose. We both love the fight. And I know our friendship will never quit.

That being said, it is my pleasure to introduce my sista to you. Not only are we doing a Mug Shot Monday profile on her, but a Messydo/Transformation Tuesday on her as she shares about her journey to the salon and back, and about her experience with some of my recommended products!

What you look for in a mug: Size (bigger is better), comfort, personality. The shape is definitely very unique...unlike any other coffee mug I have had. I get multiple cups of coffee in one pour (which I like). I also love the colors...warm earthy colors make me feel all cozy inside.
Your favorite kind of coffee: Depends on my mood. I like bold coffee with some stevia and a little vanilla creamer. or if I am feeling crazy: latte. or if I am feeling boring and healthy: black.
Describe your ideal coffee shop: One with lots of big comfy chairs and cool artwork on the walls with some Mumford and Sons style music playing in the background. A mountain lodge feel with a sweet view is always nice.

"Wide Awake"- Katy Perry
What makes you laugh/cry:
Laugh- when babies laugh or at myself Cry- when I see other people hurting
Three words that best describe you:
playful, compassionate, energetic.

Advice through a quote:
Take your time... Don't live too fast, Troubles will come and they will pass. Go find a woman and you'll find love, And don't forget son, There is someone up above. - Lynyrd Skynyrd
What is your favorite thing about your karlysue's koffee mug: They are one of a kind! I love that my koffee mug is different with it's own rarely crafted style.
...and on to the #Messydo Monday/Transformation Tuesday Testimonial:
After consulting with Libby and pinpointing exactly what she wanted, we decided that some natural highlights with a subtle ombre' would add some dimension and depth to her hair. It took the hair colorist a few tries, but the final result looks great!
(pictured above: 3rd picture is the final)
And on top of that, some new styling products/techniques have really been a nice
addition to the already fierce Libby look.

Whelp, hope this was as transforming for you as it was for Libby! Until next time... byebye.
xoxo, karlysue and Libby
