I am planning to use this website to help prepare for my wedding- what kind of hairstyle do I want? What shade of lipstick or gloss? Shade of eyeshadow? Should I get highlights? How about lowlights? There are lots of other fun things to try like fake eyelashes, colored contacts and lip-plumping. The plumping made me look like a total crazy lady. Anyway, the list goes on. PLUS, not only can you try different shades, but they are actually linked to real makeup products! Amazing.

And finally, if Mr. L and I have a little Livalittle, this is what I think she would grow up to look like- me, with his coloring:Has anyone used the site? Thoughts?

In the spirit of I hate planning my wedding and others, Anne gave me the book One Perfect Day: The Selling of the American Wedding. This book essentially talks about everything that is wrong with the wedding industry, how much it all costs and tries to get to the root of the hysteria. Has anoyone read it? I've just started and I think it may be the perfect book for when I am feeling in a "if I have to write out one more address of one more distant relative, I'm going to shrivel into the fetal position" kind of mood. Any other bitter bride stuff out there?

At $40, these dresses are a mega steal! When I proposed my original idea to have the lovely bridal brigade supply their own dresses and top it off with the same jacket, most voiced that they would need to get a gray dress anyway.
Our long-awaited in-town H&M location only had a few sizes. I'm actively trying to track down the rest. The four Atlanta "area" stores [how on earth is the Mall of GA in the Atlanta area?] get shipments every single day and are likely to get more of these dresses at some point. Guess what that means? Calling four stores a day like a crazy lady. Yes, it's worth it.
And yeah, I bought one in my size for me to keep. This way I get a fantastic dress I like, and one of the bridal brigade ladies can just borrow it instead of purchasing. Win-win if you ask me.
