Things I Love Thursday & Carousel Double-Banger!
What a week! It has truly been non-stop. You should see my Filofax; it’s madness!
Our wedding plans are really starting to come together, which is so unreal. There have been a few changes along the way (as is probably to be expected!), but yesterday I had an idea we both LOVED, & now we think the wedding will be more representative of us as a couple. It’s so exciting! AHHHH! I wish I could share more with you, but I think it’s more fun as a surprise, don’t you?!
I’m gearing up for nuttiness. My mother gets here next weekend, & my father arrives a few days later (fresh from riding the Tour de France route… Incredible!). We get married that week, & then, on Monday, I’m going to Miami with Jess for five days! I’ve been scrambling to create content for you guys while I’m busy entertaining my parents/getting married/going away, so basically the inside of my brain looks like this right now: “!!!!&*^%#^*^(^($#@!!!” You can understand, I’m sure. But still, we soldier on, don’t we?! YES! WE DO!
My new glasses! (Details to come!) Finding the perfect lipstick (Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #33) The fact that someone actually invented bubble guns! Super-exhausting workouts Having my fortune told in the West Village! Twirling in the street with Chloe Corsets! Desperately looking forward to seeing Jess (& having her hand over a big box of cupcakes… Have I mentioned she makes the BEST cupcakes in the whole wide world?! I’m not even biased. I am speaking from an entirely objective point of view!) Our car (makes everyone smile, & especially us!) Really friendly, helpful make-up artists at Sephora “I don’t have my glasses on. I see big hair & pink, it must be Gala!” Mike for helping me when I’m having a technological freak-out (he is the best, totally worth marrying! Haha!) Drooling over Mad Men for Banana Republic Raw ice-cream (mmmmmmmmmm) Sunshine!!! Neon pink pens on purple paper!
