June No-Buy

Image from  Google

Yes, you read the post title correctly. I am doing a no buy for the month of June. If you don't know what a no-buy is, it is basically a challenge to not buy any new makeup besides replacing things you already have like makeup wipes. I need to start saving some money to pay for my MBA classes, so a no buy is the perfect thing.  I don't tend to buy a lot of makeup to begin with but this will prevent my from splurging on new makeup and force me to try and use up the makeup that I currently have in my collection.


Have you ever done a makeup no-buy?

Wedding Update | Honeymoon, Bridal Shower, etc.


Hi everyone! I have a few wedding updates to share with you all. We have been very busy with planning as the wedding is less than 5 months away!! In April, we booked our hair dresser, who will also be doing our makeup the day of the wedding. I decided to go with a local salon that I went to before and their prices are not bad for hair and makeup! I also ordered my headpiece for the wedding. I have decided to wear a hand band instead of a veil because I really like the vintage look. I ordered mine from an Etsy shop called Lola & Madison.  

Earlier this week I met with my mom, grandmom, and sisters to discuss my bridal shower. The shower is going to be a Saturday in August, which is two months before my wedding. We are going to have a luncheon at a local restaurant and we are inviting about 20 guests.

As for the most exciting part, we booked our honeymoon!! We are going to be staying in Los Angeles, California from October 26th to October 31st, 2015. I am so excited!  We won't actually be staying in LA, but at a hotel near LA. We booked our flights, hotel, and rental car. If you have any suggestions of places we should go, places to eat, etc. please leave them in the comments below!
