I’m Back! and I’ve got Mascara – Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes November 27, 2011

I am now officially married! Hurray. Jared and I have been together for about 3 years and we tied the knot on 11-11-11 on a cruise ship. For the special occasion I wanted special eyes (more on that later) so I figured I’d invest in a super nice mascara that I’ve been lusting after.  About a day before I left to go to Texas for the wedding, my doll eyes kit arrived (lash primer, mascara, and liquid liner), so I just grabbed it and brought it with me without trying it.  Remember how I liked  Lancôme Hypnôse Drama? I figured this would be just as good if not better.  I was smart and brought two other mascaras I’ve used and liked before just in case this was not the miracle eye I’ve been looking for.

Did I end up wearing it for the wedding? no – and here is why.

A different kind of hair feathers September 14, 2011

At the top of my blog (just under the blog name) I claim this is a site about feeling beautiful. The obvious is that this is all about cosmetics and similar things. Yes, that is what I do most of the time – but not all the time! As some of you know I will be getting married in November! *Squeel* That is what spurred me to think about what makes me feel beautiful.

Today I bring you an item from my upcoming wedding attire. This is my hairpiece thing – it is not a veil, nor is it quite a hat, nor is it a barrette.  Anyone know what to call it? Anyway it is all different types of feathers and at the end is a diamond shaped pendant with tons of shiny crystals. On the back is an alligator clip.  I will be doing my hair in a side swept pony tail with curls and this will go over it and onto part of the back of my head.

What do you think? Are you jealous yet?
