For those that are interested in the minor beauty details here at the deets of my wedding day efforts.. (to those who aren't, sorry this will be boring)
I had planned to buy a brand new perfume for the wedding, but couldn't find anything that really grabbed me.
However while digging around in my old makeup case I found a bottle of the perfume I used to wear all the time back in the uni days. Good old Japanese Musk from the Body Shop (which is now discontinued- boo hoo) Maybe not the most sophisticated of choices but as soon as I saw it I thought "Oh goodie my wedding perfume" And it's the only fragrance I have ever worn that people have given me compliments on.
My manicure and pedicure were last minute jobs, done just before closing time at one of those bulk nail bars in Garden City. So I didn't have much time to agonise over the colours, (which is normally half the fun) but these are the ones I went for:
Fingernails were painted with Malaysian Mist by OPI, a nice nude colour. I was looking out for Mimosa for Mr & Mrs or At First Sight but this shop didn't have either of them.
Toenails were painted with Kreme de la Kremlin by OPI, which is a nice creamy colour, as I'm not big on pearlescent or shimmery nailpolishes.. It looked quite pink on my toes. Not that it mattered as I was wearing a long dress. but anyway
I have fine hair prone to limpness. Poo to that.
So I went to Wasp in North Perth and bought some clip in human hair extensions. I think they were about $160 and you get a few different pieces that clip in close to your scalp and you can use them again and again. I got them the same length as my hair as aiming for added volume not length (and the longer you get them the more they cost)
They are weird, sort of like a funny little hairy animal.. but look great when in.
Definitely recommended for girls who like big hair.
I am going to practice putting them in myself to make sure I get lots of use out of them
