Alright ladies! (and fashionable gentlemen!)
Let the voting begin! You will have until Sunday, January 24th at 12 pm (not am) which will allow me time to post your choices before I leave and possibly not have internet for a week. (Which I have vowed to not have a mental breakdown over, even though I might actually not succeed. Ashland, OR has to have free WiFi somewhere right?)
Each category has three choices and then a write in option for funsies, because really… it’s hair and makeup, I’m not that worried. Missy could care less and would tell me I looked beautiful if I wrapped a garbage bag around my body and swiped war paint under my eyes. That’s friendship folks! (P.S. If you write in war paint… that’s your final answer and unfortunately you can not take it back so wit wisely friends!)
It helps you to see the dress selections for these events so I shall oblige.
Rehearsal Dinner Dress and Shoes
Bridesmaid Dress and Shoes
(Yeah… my toes are going to freeze but these shoes are adorable and SO comfortable.)
The Bridal Shower is on Thursday and I’m going understated for that. It’s the same day as the Bachelorette Party and to be honest, my suitcase is getting full what with all the cake pans, pastry bags, makeup, hair crap, SIX (yeah..) pairs of shoes plus outfits for plane rides and other activities that I can not divulge at this time due to the secretive (read: surprise) nature. I already know the airlines are going to charge me my first born child and interest for my heavy ass bag but ya know? There’s not a whole lot I can do about it at this point.
Here are the hair choices!!
Mmmhm… I all but mastered this one. I need hair pins rather than bobby pins and a little more practice with smoothing out the bumps but all in all… I’d like to thank YouTube and eHow for its fantastic tutorial videos because I am ROCKING this DIY French Twist. And, you will be glad to know… there’s not a Bumpit in sight (nor in USE)! Yes, I learned how to back comb, tease, rat’s nest, fuck up the under part of my hair for volume, or whatever your preferred phrase. I’m feeling more girly by the second. Pardon my non-foundation makeup day…
Straight with Swoopy Bangs
And the Makeup Choices!
Black Eyeliner, Red Lipstick
Purpley! (with red lips, minus hair food) (also… cheeseball smile)
Dark Eyes and Rosy Lips
Purple Eyes with Shimmery Lips (p.s. there’s the bride to be, missy!)
Gold & Purple Eyes with Nude Lips (minus sweat from NYE 2009)
Some things to keep in mind:
1) My hair is being cut (ok, trimmed) and colored (yeah, yeah… bleached) on Thursday. Yep, I’m sending those horrendous roots apackin’. My bangs will be shorter and more manageable. (i.e. no bobby pin behind the ear)
2) I’m cool with you mixing and matching looks. Maybe you like the Gold & Purple Eyes with the Red Lips. Maybe you hate the red lips but love the black eyeliner. I’m completely open to suggestion. I wouldn’t have the poll if I wasn’t!
3) I’m SO excited!!!!!!!!!
Ah… Young Love….
