Make-Up Splurge and Countdown to Wedding

Well it's officially 3 days until I leave for St. Louis for my sister's wedding, and I spent all weekend shopping, returning and shopping some more. In an attempt to get some kind of beauty routine going that doesn't revolve around Wet N' Wild, I headed to Sephora on Saturday. Anyone that knows me, knows I have no idea how to do makeup. At all. I literally wear powder, blush, bronzer and mascara. That's it. Everyday.

But I wanted to try to look a little bit snazzy for the wedding, so I took a list (provided by Ali) to Sephora and left spending $100 on god knows what. I think I have lipstick, something that makes my eyebrows look fuller and a sample kit for my face. All I know is I spent $100 on makeup, which is the total I've spent on makeup for my entire life. It took awhile to get over that one.

Ok moving on, I'll get over the makeup situation. Basically my "look" for the wedding is going to be vintage country glam. (Jenna will love that term). Since my dress is very country-esque, but still a classic silhouette, I am pairing it with open toe mary-jane style camel heels, and I'm thinking about doing a messy/poofy fishtail braid. My makeup will be simple with a thick eyeliner and red lipstick. I'm thinking about doing fake lashes as well, but we'll see what happens with that. Doing bright red nails and toenails to go with the classic theme.

Since I started looking into inspiration pics for the yellow dress, I've been seeing a ton of yellow dresses with red lipstick. I have to say I love the color combo.

Let me know your thoughts!


Tuesday Toots.

Longest fucking day ever. Is it really only Tuesday? This morning Brock decided we were starting "two-a-days." Aka waking up BEFORE I go to work to WORK OUT. I haven't worked out in months, and he wants to start my 20 days of fitness with 2 workouts a day. Needless to say I've been tired all day and want to murder everyone. 2-a-days are over.

But I am trying to get "fit" before my sister's wedding in 18 days.

Probably should've skipped that Fatburger last night...


Yellow and Red.

For some reason it used to be much easier for me to find time to update my blog on a daily basis. I can't blame Brock since it can't totally be his arrival that is making me slack on my blog, but let's be honest it's all his fault! I've also had my head spinning with work, current visitors, upcoming visitors, upcoming weddings and fun stuff like that. I'm going to try to get back in the swing of things and update at least a few times a week!

With my sister's wedding being a mere 20 days away, I'm clearly on the wedding mind track. So, get excited because there will be quite a few hair and makeup posts in the coming weeks as I try to get down to the look I want to do for her big day. I'm thinking I should definitely have an updo since she is wearing her hair down, but beyond that I'm stuck.

My dress is yellow and shoes are camel, so I'm thinking of doing a bright red lip and red nails. I am obsessed with the colors yellow and red together, even though Ali and Brock made McDonald's theme comments on the combo, I still love it! I think they look great together, so I'm going with it. Plus it's a non-traditional wedding, so I can pretty much do whatever I want! Yay!
