Guess what this weekend is?!?! My bachelorette party!!

Most plans are being kept a surprise, but I do know there is a party bus and I know it’s going to be fun.  I also know I bought the cutest new outfit for the occasion…from Charlotte Russe. Don’t laugh.  I honestly hadn’t been into that store in the last five or six years, since my junior year of college, but figured it’d be good for a cheap “night-on-the-town” look and I was right—check it out!

I also have my practice makeup appointment that same afternoon at A Shear Thing Salon in Omaha.  My grandma, who again, is an honorary bridesmaid in my wedding, will be joining me for a practice appointment of her own as well.  I didn’t even think about what I wanted my makeup to look like until literally five minutes ago. I googled “wedding makeup for green eyes” and this picture of Hayden Panetierre popped up within the first few rows of results.  I liked it, so I saved the photo and closed the internet.  That kind of quick decision-making mentality has been the biggest asset I have in the whole wedding planning process and would be my suggestion to brides-to be-out there: if you like something, go with it and move on.  Not everything needs to be compared and contrasted and over thought.  I think makeup is a good example of that.  I want a look with a bold eye, yet something with neutral colors, because if you’ll remember, my earrings are somewhat of a statement piece being blue and yellow crystal dangles.  I’ll know better how things will together come Saturday. Maybe next week I’ll even have pictures to show of both my makeup and bachelorette!
