  1. I have very sensitive skin. I bought the Smashbox foundation, brush, concealer, primer and the Make Up Forever setting powder. It has not made my face break out and I am able to DIY photo-ready make up. Very excited!
  2. KittenHeart- I know the feeling about the pressures of work while trying to get out of town for the biggest event of our lives to date. It will all work out. I've been stressed, eating poorly for a week myself and I leave on Sunday for Europe to begin the rest of our adventure. At this point all we can do is go through the motions of regular life, try not to stress, and enjoy the wedding and the events leading up to it. I know it will all work out...try not to stress. Cannot wait to see pics from your big day! cheers, Quote: Originally Posted by KittenHeart You girls have awesome sounding jobs! I work at a software company in corporate sales.

  4. Hi Ladies, I found a few things on Etsy I just loved and bought. First, I bought the Blue Hydrangea necklace for my MOH. This necklace will be perfect with her dress and I think it matches her personality. It's a very fun piece of jewelery. And I bought Alana Bridal Necklace to wear on my wedding day. I thought it was pretty and appropriate for the location.
  5. Today my H2B ran around town! We leave in one week for our trip. Although we are so excited we had lots to do. Here is what we were up to today: I started my day at 6AM, feeding/walking our two puppies. I ran on the treadmill, although I am at my goal weight, I need to keep it there At 9:30 we departed the house to go... Old Navy, a few spring clothes, khakis, t-shirts REI, European electrical adapters, travel laundry soap, laptop bag, odds & ends. Hugo Boss, pick up H2B's suit from their tailor Mall, shoes for H2B Walmart, travel bottles for shampoo, and other travel odds & ends It seemed like more when we were running around..maybe because we were in NOVA traffic. We also put out all of our clothes and stuff we need on the guest bedroom bed. We are ready! Earlier this week I did some ordering on Etsy. I ordered a wonderful Blue necklace for my MOH and the Alana necklace for me to wear. They should go in the mail this week...I hope they get here in time. Yikes, I cut this really close. I am having the MOH's necklace drop shipped to her house. She is leaving later than I am so there is a better chance of her getting it than me. I also ordered a new purse to tour Italy..so excited. It should arrive at the house by Wednesday..just in time. Friday, I went to Sephora for makeup...what an experience...not great. First I have to preface this by saying, I am fair, blond, blue-eyed....I do not wear make up well. I tend to feel/look like a bit of a clown or tart in heavy make up. They put me in some aweful make up. ...heavy dark eyeshadow. I ended up not getting shadow but I did find some great foundation. I got Smashbox Hi-def foundation travel kit in fair. Well let me tell you about that. I felt pressured at Sephora to buy the brush, full size foundation, basically the whole line....I bought it and felt so bad about it..I went to the other Sephora on my way home. I know I am a chicken. They were nicer there. They traded what I bought for the travel kit...since I am fine with my Bare Minerals for daily use. This is only for our big day. For my eyes, I want them to stand out but not trampy looking. I called my mom and she has some great purples and grays that she can help me create a good smokey, sexy look without feeling like a clown. I am so glad my mom is on my side on this and can help. I think it will be a great mother-daughter time for us. The week ahead is going to be full too. I have to take two final exams, get my hair brightened, eyebrows plucked, facial (maybe), do laundry, clean house and pack.
  6. Hi Ladies, There are three key points with spray tanning. One, go to a facility that does airbrush tanning. They give you a custom mixture and someone airbrushes you...no machine. This way there is no misinterpretation of the directions and no one will look like Ross from that one "Friends" episode. The second key point is to exfoliate well with a body polish the day before. The third is do not use any body soap or lotion with oil in it like Dove or Olay. The tanning agent will not stick due to the oil residue left on your skin. I have had success with spray tanning, sticking to the key points above. I am very fair..that is a nicer way of saying, pale. I have decided due to time, stress, graduate school and my full-time job not to tan. I am blond, blue eyed and fair, that's me naturally. I have decided to spend extra money on some MAC make up. I want my blue eyes to pop. I just got a hair conditioning treatment that my stylist said will help the camera catch the light on my hair and look great. I am also resigned to the fact, I don't think my natural look is that bad. If you are nervous about being streaky, just go natural and feel great. If you feel great, you will look great! The camera will pick up on confidence. I wish all the May 2010 brides good luck with tanning, make up, hair, etc. I just realized I will be leaving for Italy in a little over a week. I am so excited!
  7. I booked our tickets through travel points, no bump ups with travel points...beware.
  8. I agree with the other ladies. I ended up registering and letting my mom's BFF throw me a shower even though I felt bad about it. Everyone said, you only get married once, enjoy it. I am trying not to feel bad about it and have a good time. Plus if you don't register people will buy you stuff you don't like/want, people want to help celebrate.
  9. I like your pashmina tags...good luck printing/cutting them out!
  10. I've been reading everyone's posts. I feel like I have a million things to do but its less than that. We leave for our destination on 02 May and here is what I still need to do... Buy wedding day make up Buy wedding jewelry Buy bag to take dress on the plane (the dress shop literally gave me a white trash bag...not happy) Buy a few new clothes Search and buy gifts for my MOH and the Moms Pack Put a deposit down on our dinner reception at the local restaurant (still waiting on one person's entree choice) Finish our AHR invites, well only one part which I plan to print this week for my mom. My mom is sending them out literally as she walks out the door. Reconfirm hotel accommodations Reconfirm photographer since it's been a few months since we spoke via email Send a package of information to our wedding planner for our ceremony (that is on the list for today)
  11. I love your dress, esp. the beading. The style is similar to mine and I think it is gorgeous! Quote: Originally Posted by beachbunni307 Lol...I know I don't look all too excited in this picture...but I do LOVE the dress!! I tried on what felt like 100 dresses before I finally found this one!
  12. I picked up my custom wedding band to match/marry up with my grandmother's e-ring. I am very happy with them and I feel like I have a very unique pieces.
