I should learn to do only a little at a time. Not a full on story.


SPANX

 

Let's try this again and hopefully the page won't expire. So my last dress fitting I took pictures again and wasn't happy with how my stomach looked. I don't know if they has anything to do with the fact that there are wrinkles gathered in that area or if it's just my stomach. I do have a little pot belly anyway but it seems that's all I can focus on. Anyway hoping the problem will be solved with spanx. After my last dress fitting I went to Hudson's Bay and looked for spanx. I tried a few on and the pair I ended up with were the most comfortable and weren't as heavy as some.

 

Here is a picture. Hoping they will do the job in the dress. It will be warm but I will probably take them off once the party starts on the boat. They are ugly but if they do the job then who cares??? hahaha

 

Anyone else wearing spanx?

Girls Bags
I put together the girls bags today and can't help but think I don't have enough for them. Of course I am like this at Christmas when I am shopping. It always seems like I never have enough. I honestly need your imput on this. Do you think I should add one more little thing?
 
They will be getting the tumblers, fans, welcome brochure, lemonade packette, and card holders that everyone else has as well.
 
These are what I have the girls.
Personalized bag
Necklace and earring set
Bathing Suit Wrap
Sunglasses
Personalized silk robe
Coral Nail Polish
 
Girlsbag
 
What's your opinion? What would you do? Add something else? And if so, what would that be?

ANOTHER UPDATE (EYELASHES AND SHOPPING)

 

So first thing is first, Be warned this picture is up close and personal and I have no makeup on. Also my eyebrows need to be done also. But focus on the eye lashes if you can...lol

I went today to Edmonton and had my eye lash extensions done at Lash Affair. They were a little on the pricey side but I am so happy I have them done now. I will need one fill before I leave and I have that booked for April 11th (We leave the 13th). All in all the experience was really good and the lady doing my extensions I couldn't have asked for better. I get really antsy even getting my hair done. I just can't sit still. The first time will probably be weird because they put this gel like thing under your eyes to keep your bottom lashes down. This is so they don't mingle in with the top lashes. But anyway my appointment was originally for 3D lashes but because she said this is my first time that maybe I should go with the 1D. She said when you come back and do the fill you can get the 3D fill. She said this is what most brides get because it will show up more in pics and really make your eyes pop. I have to say sitting there with my eyes closed for 1.5 hours was torture. Like I said I am antsy and can't keep still. If I were home lying on the couch taking a nap I wouldn't care to open my because. But because I couldn't open them today it was driving me crazy...lol

 

Anyway I love them and when I get the fill I will be getting the 3D fill which means they will even be more full. I took a before and after picture so you could see the difference.

 

 
 
 
 
Ok so another thing I did today was get my ring "dipped" as what I have heard people call it. And wow what a difference. The jewler said this should be done every 6 months to a year depending on your daily activity and lifestyle. I am telling you my engagement ring is shining now. I am just going to get it polished before I go and won't need to get it dipped now. Just going to polish to make sure it's shinning before I leave.
 
I bought flip flops today to wear with my second wedding dress. I didn't want anything too wedge-like or with heels (I have wedge shoes for my wedding day). My second dress though (for trash the dress) I figured a white flip flop will do just fine. I just bought these at la vie en rose while I was there buying swimsuits. These are ok because they have a little something on them. Nothing too fancy and they are pretty comfortable.
 
 
 
Another thing I did today was venture to the dollarstore (Dollarama to be exact). Remember, I was looking for something to put inside the tumblers so I could use them as vases. Well I seen these sea shells today at Dollarama for $1.50/set and thought they will do just fine. Maybe I can mix them with some sand from the resort and voila, my centre pieces. The bridal bouquets fit good in them too.
 
 
 

 

Excuse the ugly nail with the ugly color. I was testing out nail polishes today too hahahaha.

 

So I did some more shopping today too and bought a couple swimsuits and a cover up and a hat. Oh and I also bought lingerie for the wedding night. I won't show a picture of that because some things I shouldn't probably display here...hahaha Don't know if it will be used on the wedding night mind you because we will probably be too tired or drunk or both and just go to sleep. hahaha

 

Here is a pic of some of the things I bought (minus the lingerie). I bought shorts too which aren't in the picture.

 

 
 
UPDATE ON MY SECOND DRESS!!!!!!!!
 
I have to say this made me panic to no end. I probably had missus drove crazy with emails wondering where my dress was. Yeah I think this was my first ever bridezilla moment. Well I had a little breakdown today trying on bathing suits but that's on a regular basis when I try on bathing suits.
Anyway I was told by the seller that my dress would be here first week or so in March. It never came so I emailed and she said she would now be sending it out and it would get here by March 20th. I emailed here again and she said that it will be sent out and not to worry. Anyway it was the 18th I think and I sent here another email for an update and she said she will be sending out the dress and I will get it in time. So anyway, I ended up getting a tracking number and now it's on it's way. I honestly didn't think it would get here in time but it will be here MONDAY. I also contacted a seamstress in the area and asked her if it doesn't fit exactly would she be able to alter it considering she wouldn't have much time. So she said as soon as it arrives and it needs alterations to let her know. I can't wait to get it on Monday. As soon as I do and it zips up in the back, I will post pictures for sure.
 
Oh so anyone want to hear my break down moment in La Vie En Rose today. Well I hate trying on swimsuits or just cloths in general and I don't like sales people or anyone working in retail just being pushy and all up in your face. Well there was a missus today came up to me as soon as I walked in the door. She wanted to help and I said "nah I am just looking around." I needed time and space since having a face in mine for 1.5 hours getting lashes put on. Anyway I had an armful of swimsuits in my arm (different sizes because I had no idea what sizes I needed - it's been a while since shopping for swimsuits). Anyway the missus came over and asked if she wanted to start a dressing room for me. This was nice so I said "yes ok." So it came time for the dreaded trying on cloths or in this case swimsuits. I was in there tried on one and feeling frustrated pulling a sweater off me trying not to rip off lashes, warm, and just frustrated because the first one didn't fit. She comes to me outside the curtain and says "is everything ok in there? Would you like anymore sizes?" Well I had 7 swimsuits to try on and it took me a while. She must have came to the outside of that curtain like 7-8 times. Granted by that time I was really over heated, frustrated, confused about sizing and what fits best, angry, and just down on myself in general. I texted my friend (who knew I was going there to try on swimsuits( and I said in the text "If that lady comes here one more time asking about sizing and if I needed anymore help, I am going to lose it." Yeah I felt like a lunatic. Is it wedding madness and craziness setting in? Maybe...lol Anyway sorry for the blabbing I just thought you girls would need this too...lol
 
THINGS LEFT TO DO
 
I swear this list don't seem to get any smaller. Or could it be that I just keep adding things to it? Yeah maybe that's it.
 
- Groom still has to give in and listen to his future wife about buying groomsmen gifts. I gave up for a while though but it's time to start hounding again.
- Pick up thank you cards to go with those groomsmen/bridesmaids gifts and also for tip money to give to vendors.
- Brazillian wax (Yup I am doing this, don't know how but I am). Appointment is booked just need to cancel, I mean get the nerve up to go...lol
- Still need to work on music. Something fiancé is working on. Well leaving until the night before we leave.
- Print off welcome brochures.
- Finish Adventure book/Guest signing book.
- Get nails done and pedicure ( Appointment is booked).
- Print all receipts.
- Skype meeting with Krystie Ann for makeup.
- Second dress alterations if needed.
- Pick up wedding dress (Have the pick up appointment made).
- Get married legally here in Canada (Appointment is booked for April 6th).
- Get US cash.
- Pack (This will be a challenge I am sure).
 
I think that is all for now. As soon as I get my second dress on Monday, I will post pictures of that as well. I cannot wait to get it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kristy the eyelashes look fabulous!! I really thought I had pretty decent lashes but I look at what the add-ons do for your eyes and it's amazing!  Love the flip flops!! They're so cute!! I will be checking out La Vie en Rose! I hate the swimsuit shopping!! But you're right - the sales clerks can drive you bonkers sometimes!! And I find with that store they're so desperate for commission that they're always all over you! The shells are perfect! And the test run looks great! I think that's a perfect centerpiece!!

 

Looking forward to dress pics!

I think that's great what you have and I don't think you need to add anymore. If it was me I'd be thrilled with all of that!

Thanks girls. I probably shouldn't add more to that bag then. If you guys would love to get that as a gift, then that makes me happy.

 

Oh just look at the disaster of a spare room. I think it's growing. Eeeee Next weekends task is to organize and pack and see if I need to buy anymore bags. I am sure I could pack a bag or two with this mess.

I agree. You've gotten them a lot and they will be over the moon. One of my bridesmaids married in 2013 and I was her bridesmaid -- she was actually shocked with what I had given and I didn't think it was near enough. I think it's in our heads hehe
