During my wedding journey, I was so excited to start making my wedding invites. I was assuming that I would order some invites like most people do. But then on Christmas, my fiance bought me a cricut. If you don’t know what that is, it is a crafters dream tool. So after I got that, my fiance thought I should start making the invites, so I did. I found a cute template and I thought it would be cheap to do since all I needed was paper. Oh how I was so wrong about that. For one, I had to get the right paper and that wasn’t cheap, then I had to buy shimmery paper for the actual invite, and then I decided to gold foil the invites to add an extra flair to it. That took even more time. Then I had to find just the right ribbon for the invite. This was such a long process that I barely finished making the invites literally tonight. It also didn’t help that I had to make an extra 3o invitations for my parents friends that I don’t even know. For some reason my parents feel the need to invite everyone they know even if they don’t even know who I am. I personally feel like it’s just pointless because it is my special day and the people that go should only be the people that care about my fiance and i. Has anyone gone through this issue of having to invite people that you don’t want ?? Apparently to them, they don’t want people to talk badly about them for not inviting them even though these people barely talk to them, unless they see them at the store or something. Sounds pretty ridiculous right?? This issue has just caused me so much stress and it’s literally annoying. It kind of made me want to elope even more. If only we didn’t put down deposits for everything.
I don’t know a picture of my invite on here, but I will be sure to post on here later. If anyone would like tips on how to make an invite then just please let me know.
Every girl dreams of their perfect wedding and how planning it will be so much fun. Well unless you have tons and tons of money, then that is definitely not the case. I’ve been engaged for about 2 years now to my high school sweet heart. We’ve know each other for about 10 years now, so its about time we get hitched. Before I was engaged I thought that planning a wedding would be so easy and that I would be so organized for it. Well its some what true, I was very organized throughout the entire process. I am about 3 months away from the big day. I wanted to blog about the entire process, but my time has been so limited that I wasn’t able to. So now I want to document everything I can so hopefully the girls that read this will take my advice and do better. Each day I will try to blog about different parts of a wedding, but the most important part is to know what you want in your wedding. Also, make sure that if you do really want your dream wedding, then to have enough money saved up for it. Every time we meet with a wedding vendor, they always ask what your budget is, but it seems like its so hard to have a budget because even if you tell them what your budget is, they might not even be able to do it, so you have to come up with the money anyways. If anyone has any questions about this process, then please feel free to ask. I would love to talk about weddings with other and maybe someone could give me some tips as well. I’ll end it here for now, but tomorrow I will talk about wedding invitations and that whole process.
So I wanted to share something with all of you that I had recently purchased. Its this mineral veil from Bare Minerals. The packaging was too cute not to share with all of you. This is limited edition for the holidays. They have this packaging for the mineral veil, which cost $36. Its a little bit more pricier than the normal mineral veil, but this one is a lot larger and could potentially last you a life time. They also have this packaging for the normal powder makeup, and the only thing that is different is that instead of the clear jewel in the middle, they have a red jewel.
So recently, I have changed up my makeup routine to where I am not wearing liquid foundation anymore. Liquid foundation tends to wear off on my really quick and it doesn’t give me the coverage I need. So I have been using Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, which is a tint hydrating cream and it gives my face the color it needs. And then I top it off with the Bare Minerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum, which covers so amazing. This had been my foundation routine since the summer because I live in Utah and the heat here can get pretty crazy and the liquid foundation was just melting off of me. These two products have definitely been a life saver. For a while, I was just using these two product alone, but then a while back I found that I had some mineral veil left and it just made my makeup even better! It helped my face not be so oily, which is a huge problem for me. So this jumbo mineral veil was a bit of a splurge for me, but luckily I got it for pretty cheap.
Recently, I tried this new app called Raise and it allows you to buy gift cards for cheap because people don’t have a need for them anymore so I was lucky enough to get a Sephora gift card for cheap. If you use the code “kphan1”, you will get $5 off your purchase. Also if you use the code “Raise10”, you can save another $10 off a gift card. Like how awesome is that? Also, make sure you check out eBates.com, this site really does help you save money when your shopping online especially for purchases like this. When I purchase makeup items from Sephora, I tend to like shopping online better than actually in-store because you not only get cash back for it, but with you purchase you can get little kits of free samples, where they won’t give you in-store, which is a bummer to me, because I love free samples. So with my purchase I also got a little makeup bag full of samples that I can’t wait to try.
If you want to learn more about my money saving tips or how I get free gift cards, then please let me a comment below so I can do a post on thank.
Thanks for reading, and I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
