Changes on lashes

Hello my beauty queens!

I’ve been using a popular brand for lashes that was pretty affordable but that looked pretty natural. Unfortunetly due to low product availability, I felt obliged to change and find a new supplier. 

So I figured if I was going to change brand might as well get some good quality  lashes… plus who ever knows me really well, they know that they need to be very natural looking. 

Due to these changes prices will not include lashes anymore and depending on style the prices will vary between 5$ to 20$ additional to the service provided.

Thank you for understanding and I’m only doing this for better results ūüėČ 

Love you guys xox

My fall favs

Hello beauties,

Falls here and all I feel like doing is get cozy in a big sweater!! 
Here are a few of my fall favs from makeup to clothes…

Its time to bring out the dark lip colors and dark rich colors! 
So my 2 favorite lip sticks would be Mirage from Raffael Cosmetics, Its a rich pink, long lasting and leaves a healthy shine and Mac Red from MAC cosmetics.

Along with those crazy lips my fav eye liner are the felt liners either the Revlon liner or the Raffael cosmetics one.

Im obsessing over my Graftobian warm palette, they’re creamy and full full coverage or MAC’s face and body foundation.

Everyone needs a beauty blender, how do you live without one in your collection.

Obviously the studio fix powder to set everything from MAC again.

The best shadow palette to carry in your purse for the fall would naked palette (first one or second) they’re both amazing to have.

On to clothes now, I’m obsessing over houndstooth pattern shirts or sweaters, tweed blazers, wine color shirts or blazers… But basically pieces that can add character and texture to your outfits.

Wedding plans

Hello Beauties!!!

I said I was going to post my wedding planning but I won’t be giving out locations or anything like that. It will be more like how I manage my things. So here we goooooooo!

We’ve been going out now for 2 years and 3 months, he proposed on our 2nd year anniversary. So later on that night, we took the time to call most of our close family members and good friends to announce the good news over the phone.
NOTE: Important people shouldn’t find out through social media, it’s really not classy.
We hadn’t discussed¬†details¬†that night, we actually took the time to¬†enjoy¬† our¬†happiest moment ever and our evening out!!
The only thing we discussed was approximately when and in how long we wanted the big day to occur. We decided we wanted to wait a year and a half for certain reasons. So all we had decided that night was probably around Spring-Summer 2014.

That very same week we got engaged¬†we started getting down to business¬†¬†right away :P.¬†We told ourselves the more time and the¬†faster we¬†start planning,¬†the less we’ll stress and be more in control of the¬†planning, the¬†ideas and the budget. We decided to do it in May 2014 and we made a budget (AND STICK TO IT). We even started our registry and told everyone for our next birthday gifts, christmas gifts or any other occassion that we’d prefer getting things for our house instead of random things ūüėČ
The way we thought of¬†planning things would be setting priorities so¬†from the¬†most important¬†to the less urgent thing to book or decide on. According to our generation and the way¬†couples are in our area; everyone books¬†in advance when I say in advance I mean 8-14 months ahead for the reception at least. It’s important to book the reception early because they book really quickly. So we started to research which halls interest us.
Our main priorities (the 3 most important) to¬†book were: Ceremony, reception (food included) and entertainment! ūüėĬ† So we researched all halls that interest us and what they were offering for our budget and we end up choosing the one that suited our needs the most. We also booked the Dj and our Church.
Our next step (we’re at this stage now) is researching photographer and videographer and start thinking of ideas for flowers, transportation, decor options…

The important thing is to have lots of visual ideas, print and save ALL your ideas. Email yourself if you have to, take notes and keep everything because it doesn’t take much to forget, lose or even misunderstand information¬†between suppliers. Keep everything in one place so you know where to go for the information you need.

That’s it for now. I’ll be giving a little update in a few months!! Happy Planning xox
