katrina, tell me about the fix stuff for your face, everyone talks about it, but no one has described it in detail! like smell, feel, what you do with it, how often do you use it??

sure thing. it literally feels like water so you don't feel it at all once dry. it goes on like a mist, not really a spray. you're supposed to put it on first before moisturizing and let it dry. then put it on afterwards to set in the makeup. it has a light clean smell. some of the ingredients are green tea, chamomile, and cucumber. it was $14.

 

does that help? if you have other questions let me know. smile159.gif

she beat me to it, but she hit it right on the head. i bought this stuff right after someone posted about it months ago (was it jules?) and i only use it for going out on special occassions, but everytime i use it, my makeup looks so amazing compared to when i dont use it. the scent is really nice too. what i do is lightly mist after ive put the makeup on, and then using a large fluffy makeup brush, just lightly brush it over my face evenly to make sure the mist gets everywhere and whatnot. i love this stuff.

katrina, about how much did you spend at mac? just wanna know how much i should expect to shell out for all that stuff :) i might have to hold off going until june.... i am so pale right now so i dont wanna buy yet just in case i somehow am able to get a little tan haha

maura, we've been having snow, rain, sleet and hail, and weirdly, sunshine at the same time! so don't feel bad about being in chi-town!

We're getting closer, ladies!

J and I went to pick out his wedding band this weekend.

I've still gotta figure out music. Haven't thought at all about that.

I took my dress to get it altered this weekend and amazingly, for it to be taken in and the bustle, the lady is only charging me $70! My friend got charged over $500 for the same thing.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
