I hadn’t thought much about it until recently, but how do I want my makeup for the wedding? I want to look like myself – just enhanced but I also want to look fab in pictures. Do you go for understated or statement? I need your help, sweet readers and friends! I won’t share my dress but I will say that it’s white, it’s not strapless and I’m wearing flowers in my hair with minimal jewelry and the hair back. Let me know what you think is most appropriate! Here I am as a point of reference ;)
1. This first picture below is the look I’m leaning toward: defined brows, winged liner, pretty lashes and a peach lip. What do you think? Do you like the slight cat eye?
2. More shadow, less lip…
3. You could go a little farther with the eyeliner for this…
4. Golder shadow and a paler lip…
5. More shadow, more makeup. I love this look but is it overly sexy?
6. A lot more shadow and liner – verging on costume vs wedding…
7. Lots of lip, lots of liner, less of everything else
8. More shadow, less liner…
9. Less liner, more lip…
10. Very Natural…

My birthday is Sunday. It’s a considerably more low key milestone this year in light of the HUGE event that’s happening in two weeks. I am in disbelief as I sit here writing “in two weeks”. I’ve been planning this wedding excitedly but also somewhere in the back of my mind thinking it would never come to fruition – sortof like my 16th & 21st birthdays or college graduation. And yet, it swiftly approaches and I’m starting to have freak outs about how many loved ones I get to see & celebrate with.
So, I’m hoping for a chill weekend. My almost-husband is taking me to dinner tonight. We’re going to the pool tomorrow and I’m sure I’ll throw in some thank-you note writing.
Fondly wishing you a very pleasing August weekend.

I’m heading to the lake with girlfriends for a weekend of thrills and chills. Hope yours is epic or rejuvenating, whichever you prefer….
It was quite an eventful weekend. We got a cake sample for our wedding cake and it tasted as good as it looks. .
A new and exciting sponsorship opportunity from BeBop Clothing. I got some goodies in on Friday and couldn’t wait to try them on – more to come!
Karaoke with Ro, my brother Hampton & his brother William. I couldn’t stop myself from singing “Alone” by Heart but regretted it later…
Ro’s mom came up bearing gifts! Including the below four poster bed frame for our room & a dining table. I’m obsessed.
Some sweet friends threw a stock the bar party for us and it was incredibly lovely. Here’s a picture with my mom. (dress – vintage from the grey dog)
Spoils from the stock the bar. Planning this wedding has certainly shown me how many people love us. I feel very special.
I hope you had a lovely weekend!
Heidi K has launched a lifestyle website for AOL among the many other things she’s involved in. She does things like a summer run challenge (running with different super models: Miranda Kerr, Coco Rocha et al) and daily outfit postings. The Cut calls it 1/2 Goop, 1/2 Oprah and I think she’s likable so I’m not too judgmental.
PS: I ran yesterday and it was a pathetic, pitiful sight. Maybe I need to run behind Miranda Kerr to get me motivated.
Yes it’s seven weeks before the wedding and no I hadn’t even thought about the cake until recently. It’s not that I don’t love cake, believe me…I do. I just had left it out and waited until I knew how the budget was going to shake out. Anyway, in one of those serendipitous happenings that you always wish for when planning an event, I found a baker in my price range and we made a deal.
Here are my inspirations.
Today marks two months until the big day. Typically, that would seem like a long time to wait for anything, but in reference to our wedding it seems like mere minutes. I know it’s a while but I also know it will pass quickly and all of a sudden I’ll turn around and be walking down the aisle. This serves as a personal reminder to savor it and to stop eating ;)
On another note, I feel so privileged to be able to marry the person I love. It’s not a right that is afforded to everyone, although thankfully we are getting closer.

While I do have a few preppy tendencies, I wouldn’t consider myself or my style “preppy”. Why then am I tempted (attempting) to monogram everything from beer glasses to bed sheets?
I’ll tell you why, because it’s adorable. Annnnd I might be a little excited about our monogram: PBR.
