Wedding Talk Wednesday: Engagement Session/ Venue Selection

Took us only forever to get it together, but we finally took some pictures that i've personally deemed good enough to call engagements pics..lol..seriously I just haven't been in picture taking mood. I got my hair flat ironed which motivated me to just get it over with. My Charming is always fun when it's time to take pictures, you just have to catch him on a good day. Most of the pics were edited to be black and white because I hated my makeup!!

Also, we'ver finally picked our venue for the ceremony and reception, which I love so so so much. We're changing our date to October because of a lot of different reasons that I don't care to list. It's nothing bad, sometimes you have to just factor in EVERYTHING that will matter before and after you get married. Besides, we're getting married outside and I think the weather will be much more forgiving.

This is the gazebo on the lake where our vows will take place.

This is the reception site that will also serve as a backup for bad weather.

Say hello to our lovely wedding planner/coordinator LaToya. She is the bomb.com and we both love her to pieces. (But of course I love who listens to me and gives me honesty about how outlandish some of my ideas are..LOL)

Thanks for stopping by,

FOTD: Feeling' Fancy

I'm overwhelmed with my job, not that I have to work 40 hrs a week, but even the administrative part of what I do is really getting me. It's either work and concentrate on that..or school, which of course comes 1st. I guess I gotta just suck it up and figure out how to handle both. I went to Wal-Mart and spent $10 on a planner so I can..for lack of better words..get my shit together!

FOTD: Purple Smoke

Happy New Years Everyone! May you all be successful at all the lies changes you have promised yourself this year!!LOL

Anyways, I'm getting a blog makeover soon and i'm excited about that, but in the mean time in between time, something that I wanted to do was start sharing my makeup routine. One of my lies changes that I wanted to make this year was to utilize my huge collection of cosmetics, AND to stop buying so much!!

On to the Face:

This is my freshly washed and lotioned face, i've done nothing so far (scary looking huh..LOL) but shade and shape my brows, and conceal them both for a cleaner look. You can probably see the concealer around my eyebrows. (Tutorial on how I do those?)

I start at my lash line and pack on the purple, I did a purple smokey eye which has to be explained in depth, which I can do..buttttt it's a million youtube videos that show you how.

This is before i've powdered...

This is after i've powdered...

Then add foundation, blush, and lip glass...

Products I used:

Urban decay primer potion
Jordana - Your Majesty
15 color concealer palette
L.A. Colors -Lollipop palette

L.A. Colors - Ammunition palette

Maybelline Falsies

Maybelline Mousse Dream Concealer (Dark 2)
Covergirl Pressed Powder Clean (Tosted Almond)
Covergirl TruBlend (toasted Almond
Wet N' Wild Blusher (Heather Silk)

Mac Lipglass

VOILA!! Oh yea, like my earrings?!?! Buy them here---> CHARMAINES  

Until next time, thanks for reading!!

Dreek ♥
