Zit free wedding day

One thing I was so worried about was having a big fat zit in my face on my wedding day. I'll be honest... I have terrible skin. I have been fighting with acne my whole life. No fun at all.

So, I decided early on that I needed to take care of my face prior to the big day of there was any shot of being zit free.

First, I started paying attention to exactly what makes me break out. This was not a study that could be done over night. It took a while for me to figure out exactly what did it for me. I came up with two reasons: stress and that time of the month. Stress was the one that I was most worried about because weddings are stressful.

The way I battled the stress was getting a lot of things done early. Obviously there will always be last minute things, but the more prepared you are the better. My face thanked me for it!!

For my shower, one of my bridesmaids got me a gift certificate for a "refresh facial." I used this exactly one month before the wedding. This was exactly what I needed to give my face a good clean starting foundation.

After the facial, I did a proactiv facial mask once a week. I didn't want to go crazy and have my face react to harsh treatment so I stuck to once a week.

I also used my three step proactiv face wash twice a day.

By the time the wedding came, my skin had NEVER looked better in my life. Even the girl that was doing my makeup commented on how great my skin was. I had never heard a comment like that before. I was always the girl with mild acne. But on my wedding day, I was zit free!!!!! :)

What is your skin care regime?

Take care until next time,

Cake Table!!!

Our cake table was something that was very special to myMr and me. We really wanted to honor those who have shown us how to love.

In order to do so, we gathered pictures of our grandparents and parents cutting the cake at their wedding. Then, we proudly displayed those pictures on our table. It meant SO much to our families. As a memento, we gave the pictures to our parents and grandparents. They were so incredibly grateful. I am so happy we did it.

Here is our cake table!!!

Take care until next time,

The Hairrr

So, if you remember from my previous post, I was a little crazy and decided NOT to do a hair trial. Not only did I decide not to do a hair trial, but I was also getting my hair done by a new hair lady. She had never met me before or anything. She was recommended to me by my sister in law, so I had total trust in her.

Was I happy with that decision?! ABSOLUTELY.

I feel like so often, hair does not turn out how you want it when you do a hair trial and it could stress you out even more. My lady was AMAZING!! I absolutely LOVED my hair.

So, here are the pics!!!

Curlin my hurrrr

Alllll curlyyyy... but not done yetttt!

ALLLLL DONE!!! :) :) :)

Take care until next time,
