so I’m still mostly planning… but I wanted to blog a little bit about something other than ‘How to come up with amazing ideas for wedding invitations’ (and really, I’m at a loss there anyway 😉 ) so here are 5 things that have been on my mind or have happened or whatever… lol
1. I have become a Julep addict!
Yup, I finally gave in and bought make-up… it started with a lipstick and then spiraled from there. In all honesty: the make-up aisles at drugstores overwhelm me immensely. I never know what to get. So Julep seemed like the perfect option. I don’t want to invest all my money in make-up, but it’s good to have staples already at home if one ever does feel like wearing lipstick or just looking extra fancy on a date night, so I signed up for a 3-month subscription and now have plenty of nail polishes, a few lip products and even an eyeliner & shadow. I think I’m set for the next 10 years 😉

I have to say their lip products smell absolutely amazing! I’m always a little careful when it comes to my lips because products can dry them out, but I love their lip crayons!
2. I’m tired of hearing I’m brave for getting married
This has been a huge downer for me lately: people saying ‘you must be sure about this guy’ or ‘most marriages end in divorce’ or ‘wow, you’re brave for taking that step.’ I wish people would just keep their negative opinions to themselves. I know! My parents got divorced, G. parents got divorced, we are very much aware of that. That doesn’t change the way we feel. Even if we do end up getting divorced in 20 years, do we need to think about that now? Ugh.
3. Instagram is my favorite social media site
I’ve been trying to stay active on facebook, because for a few people that’s the only way to see what I’m up to, but… I have fallen hard for instagram and just don’t really care about facebook anymore.
Follow me on instagram here and leave your instagram in the comments so I can follow back!
4. Turns out: I’m a pretty good shot!
But way to skinny to support a heavy fire-arm. Haha. We shot some skeet the past weekend while we visited my mom and her boyfriend. It was fun and I even hit a few (I’m a natural!), but the kick-back from every shot basically moved me back a foot every time. Haha.
5. I’m overwhelmed with planning
Yup, there it is. I said it. I was done with it. Like, actually done. Everything was good to go and then… G.s sister backed out and it kinda completely knocked the air right out of me. At this point I just want to grab G. and go somewhere just the two of us. There are already a few people telling me they won’t make it and there have been a few things lately (my dress shopping got canceled, still no ring… I mean I still only have the ‘temporary’ one) that just make me want to go ‘F it all. Let’s elope! I can’t deal with everyone else on top of us, too’ I’ve been feeling like everyone only brings up problems instead of solutions lately and it’s just too much. I know there is still lots of time, so I don’t think there is any harm in just stepping back and saying ‘I need a break’.
And that’s that!
What have you been up to lately? Any advice or tips or instagrams or pintrest boards or etsy shops you feel like sharing? Feel free!
Have a lovely weekend,
