Dry January

Dry January

I love a new make product as much as the next person, if not more, but this January I decided to have a ‘dry’ month where I wouldn’t by any products at all!!!! Not one! Now, to be honest for me that shouldn’t be too difficult as I have a whole professional kit to use, but I tend to have a very different personal kit and this is what I have used all January. I have not dipped into my Pro kit at all. I had been given a couple of new products for Christmas so I did have those to try but all in all I did stick to the ‘use what you have’ mantra. I found it really worth while exercise and its really changed the way I am going to buy products for myself from now on. Now we are in February I am sticking with it and I will only buy a new product when I really ‘need’ to replace something rather than ‘want’ something.

Have you ever tried doing a ‘dry’ month with cosmetics? If so how did it go?

Missoni Hotel Wedding

Leanne and Mark_0747

This is one of my favorite reactions caught on camera from the Mum of the bride from this wedding. I have to say that for me, apart from the bride, the Mums are my favorite to do. The most common thing I hear from the Mother of the Bride or Groom on the wedding day is ‘Oh you don’t need to worry about me, I just need a little’. It’s like they don’t want to be a burden on me or anyone else around! They are also a bit anxious about makeup as most of them will either not be makeup wearers or have a very set look. So when I have finished talking to them about how they would love to loo (usually younger) and then finished the makeup and I get a reaction like this I am over-joyed.

Dalhousie Castle Wedding

There is something about Dalhousie as everytime I am there something happens to me. Janis’s wedding didn’t start too well as I managed to fall down a small flight of stairs banging my head quite hard but after a quick cup of tea all was well! We had a great morning catching up, as 7 years prior to this I had done Janis’s sisters wedding so it was all very relaxed and great fun!
