I felt like this dress called for teeny tiny necklaces.  The teeny tiny necklaces match the teeny tiny polka dots.  And I am going to make this a teeny tiny blog post because I don't think this dress really needs much more of an explanation.

Wedding Day Beauty Prep

Wedding Day Beauty Prep



My wedding day is fast approaching.  I haven't been working out or limiting my pizza consumption, but I have been thinking about my skin, hair, and nails.  So, here's my wedding day wishlist and the tools I am using to meet my goals.

  • Glowing Complexion.  I wash daily with {1} Benefit Foamingly Clean Face Wash  and then I scrape off all those dead skin cells twice a week with {2} Benefit Refined Finish Facial Polish.  I use both products with my {3} Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System (because I am too cheap to buy the Clairsonic Mia).  My skin has never felt softer and my pores have never looked smaller...and I have never had less zits. 
  • Bright Eyes.  I often don't get as much sleep as I need would like, resulting in tired, wrinkly, dark circled eyes.  However, {4} Neutrogena's Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream is helping me curb my old lady wrinkles.
  • Long Island Medium Nails.  Ok, maybe I don't want them that long, but I would like my nails not to look like chewed up pieces of plastic.  I've been applying {5} Julep's Oxygen Nail Treatment every few days to help with growth and strength. (Get your first month of Julep free by signing up here.)
  • Barbie Hair.  I normally keep my hair pretty short, but I would like to have long(er) voluminous locks for my wedding day.  I've been using {6}Living Proof Perfect Hair Day to protect my hair from the intense heat of my daily hair ironing and also prevent split ends.
  • Luscious Lips.  I've been using {7} Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in combination with a weekly lip scrub using {8} Fresh Sugar Lip Polish in order to maintain soft and luxurious lips.

 It sounds like a lot of work, but it really isn't.  It's really just washing my face, slapping on nail polish every few days, putting in a little hair product, and putting on chap stick.  

Is there any element of your beauty regimen that you recommend?

I have a really good excuse...

As you can see, Favorite Fashion Friday is missing today.  I have a good excuse, I promise.  I am in the middle of a dental journey and chipped one of my temporary veneers on an English muffin.  So, I am in some pain and sad about my mostly liquid diet.  I'm heading to the emergency dentist this afternoon, so I should be ship shape in time for happy hour tonight.

After months of searching (and a whole lot of skepticism), I finally stumbled upon a romper, a romper that I could actually tolerate on my body.  And (bonus) only $30.  Of course it was a result of my Instagram shopping journey, where I shop from the comfort of my bed.  Now, I just have to figure out how to go to the bathroom in this thing. (Well, actually, I would like to go to the bathroom outside of the romper, but I guess that's just semantics).
