happy weekend, we’ll be in palm springs…

where it’s only 104 degrees. And we have 4 wedding-related appointments.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, hair and makeup trial. I can’t think of anything more hideous than wearing a full face of makeup in 104 degree weather, but the life of a soon-to-be bride is not always glamorous. We work hard, don’t we?

Kay so here’s the thing. I don’t wear makeup and also I am muy low maintenance when it comes to hair. Like, I get it cut every 4 to 8 months depending on how lazy I am. And that’s it. Soooo. um, does anyone have any good links to super natural-looking makeup I can bring with me? I am frightfully ill-prepared for this part of the wedding.

Here’s what I’m thinking:

Now I don’t look anything like Mischa Barton, mind you. But I think her makeup is kind of pretty here. I mostly know what i’m doing with my hair… weaing it long, down, and curled loosely. SOMEWHERE in wedding blog land I saw a photo of the girl who plays Blair on gossip girl with a perfect example of the kind of hair I’m going for… except my hair is strawberry blond, and hers is not. but the style was right. and now i’ve lost it. shooooot.

    Have you ever thought about a little wreath of flowers for your hair? That’s what I did after feeling the way you do and not knowing what to do (I am not a makeup and fussed over hair person). Someone suggested it and I am super happy I did it! I wanted to email you a picture, but I couldn’t find your email address anywhere…

    Not sure if this was the link with Blair, but it sounds like an example of what you’re looking for:

    Hey you- Why not do your own makeup if you are a pretty low maintance person normally? I’m thinking of doing the same, though I might just get my hair done…
