What a Saturday!

Recommended Posts

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...

  1. Old Navy, a few spring clothes, khakis, t-shirts
  2. REI, European electrical adapters, travel laundry soap, laptop bag, odds & ends.
  3. Hugo Boss, pick up H2B's suit from their tailor
  4. Mall, shoes for H2B
  5. 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.

First, best wishes and waiting to hear the stories and read your review when you return.


As I was reading your Sephora experience I just shook my head thinking why and when. Why do they think presuring you will increase sales. And When will they realize the better they understand the better they apply your make-up by understanding your complexion etc. the more you will buy!


Okay, now that I am off my chatterbox. Back to the important part....your wedding day!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
