My New Stuff

I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday weekend. Spent time with friends and family. Wedding for family turned out fantastic! I cooked dinner on Monday, had some family time with all 5 of my children. Well my oldest is grown now and is on her own, so it’s always great to have my mini basketball team in the same place. (Lol)

So I am about to share my beauty products and of course my purchase from Nordstrom’s mascara maddness sale! They do this twice a year and I make it to both of them.

Wedding Story

The wedding turned out beautiful. My Sunday started out with me going early in the morning to have my make up done at Clinique by Chyan.  She did an excellent job. I also found some products that I plan to try from them.

Since I didn’t get to go to church as usual, I listened to it in on 102.3 KJLH (radio) in car while driving.  I made it back to my brother’s to eat breakfast, get ready and make sure I left with everything that I would need at the wedding venue.

“Starting my make up at Clinique! ” And Yes these are my own natural eyelashes. They are very long.

I was running short on time. But here is my make up done. I wore my Mac Cosmetics Nude lipstick to complete my look. My accessories were a gift to me from bride Monique. The necklace, earrings, and bracelet really complimented my dress.

Thanks for stopping by. Shout out to Chyan from Clinique!! I will be writing about the wedding and sharing photos of everything soon. Happy Memorial Day! “A Day of Remembrance” God Bless❤ 💋

Bridal & Tailor “Love & Lace”

I took my wedding dress to Ramona Southard of Love And Lace Bridal Salon. I was having a hard time finding someone to tailor my dress, but when I went in to let Ramona know about my dilemma she let me know that my dress would be taken cared of. So here is a recap from yesterday.

image

This how the dress looked at first. We decided to have more layers added without making it look frumpy. So Ramona and I sat down to discuss what would be done and prices. We set my first fitting on April 19.

When I went in on April 19, I didn’t know what to expect. My younger daughters and I went in and was offered water while we sat down in the showroom. She brought the dress out for me to try on. When I put the dress on I was immediately pleased with how it turned out. See our first plan to add about 4 inches to the dress. But instead Ramona had to do things differently which turned out better instead.

This is what the dress looks like almost finished. I love it! The finishing touches are just to add more lining to front and back, dress was ready for pick up May 1 costing $55. So the total I spent on this dress, which includes the chiffon fabric I purchased from Joann’s that cost $17.48 with a coupon. My dress total is $82.48. My original dress would have been over $220 for the dress.

Those who need a excellent Bridal & Tailor should give Ramona a call and stop by. She is very dependable, fast, and honest. She gave me her opinion and listened to what I wanted. She really worked with me. You can check out Ramona Southard at LoveandLacebridalsalon.com
Her phone number is 949.861.8455

Feel free to leave your comments and opinions about my dress here. Enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by❤💋
