catching up

valentines day..
was low key this year,strictly no gift giving just a dinner out. j took me to delugo, the restaurant where we had dinner on the night of the proposal. it was very sweet, i think it might be another tradition of ours in the making. (we shall see)
as mentioned in previous posts, i had my 2nd hair trial on the same night. i was not 100 happy. the hair was too old fashioned and she didn't do my eyes very well. but everyone loved it so i felt kind of overwhelmed and persuaded that this was the right hairdresser for me. so i ended up canceling my previous hair dresser and booked these new guys in. that night, after everyone had left and we were about to go to bed. i looked at the photos from the day, and the more i looked at them the more i knew that i had made a big mistake and it was one that can not be undone.

on the plus side i did feel that the foundation was lighter and i really got along with the hair and makeup artist.
i have also emailed them since with my concerns about the eyeliner not being thick enough etc. they have assured me that it can be easily fixed.
i am also going for yet another hair trial with the same lady to see whether or not she can recreate the hair style i had from my previous trial. (yes more money)
anyway, regardless of how much its going to cost me i just need to know that that they can get it
right on the day.


the next day...

j's mum took me everywhere. the florist, ikea, thrift stores you name it!
i was so tired that by the end i had to sit down in the middle of the grocery store, (isle 6 next to the canned tuna) so that i could catch my breath. on the plus side i was able to tick off a wedding task and i found these lovely treasures at the thrift store. makes me want more, more, more... stuff that i don't need.




  1. well I think you look gorgeous but spending more money on something you want to be done perfect isn't a worry as it is YOUR day!

    Ohh I love your outfits, they are so lovely and I find that vase is precious. I'm always getting lost in thrift stores, I love looking at each thing carefully (:
