Guess what? We got married!!!

We did it! On July 10, 2009, last Friday, at 14.45 hrs. Marston and I got married! We took the plunge almost 5 years after we first met. 🙂 So I’m officially a married woman now!! I said ‘I do’, we’re wearing wedding rings and his last name has been added to mine. He can call me ‘his wife‘ now and I can call him ‘my husband‘ instead of ‘my boyfriend’. How strange is this? It’s something we both have to get used to obviously, but one thing is certain though….I am one happy happy woman! The wedding ceremony was...

My second pedicure ever

I got my second pedicure ever last Friday. 🙂 My first pedicure ever was last year, right before I went on vacation to my family on the Cabo Verde Islands. I knew I was going to be walking around in flip flops all day for five weeks, so getting a pedicure was a necessary thing to do (in my eyes). So I went to a Brazilian/Capeverdean place a few minutes away from where we live. It was ok, but not super. It was kind of ghetto in my eyes. It was a small space with way too many people. They...

Caring for oily skin (an update)

I’ve written about dealing with oily skin often on this blog. It’s something I ‘suffer’ from and can not get rid of. Not for a 100% at least… 🙁 See? Ieew! Gross! Yes yes, I know that having an oily skin will delay the appearance of wrinkles, but sometimes it’s just not cool to be looking like someone dipped your head in a bucket of olive oil…. So in the last few years I’ve been collecting as many tips as possible on how to deal with oily skin: * I put on a peel-off facial mask every week (either Freeman’s...

Purse love

Last week I went to a Vero Moda ‘private sale’. I write ‘private sale’, but everybody knew about it and the doors were right open. I got there as one of the first, but the store filled up pretty fast….But oh well, I’m not alone on this earth, right? Vero Moda is one of my favorite clothing stores ever! I love all their stuff! They are good quality clothes and most stuff fit me perfectly, even their pants. They’re very affordable too! Yes, I would prefer them over H&M anytime! Anywho, I went to the sale and I only bought...

Bridal hairstyles…help me pick! (1)

The wedding date hasn’t been set yet, cause we’re waiting for some documents to come in from the US, since my fiance (lol at me calling him that!) is American, as you might know. However, this doesn’t stop me from browsing through YouTubes (yes, that’s how I call it) and look at potential bridal hairstyles. I’ve decided to do a series (this is part 1) and let you girls help me out! Keep in mind: – I have a lot of hair and it’s long (it literally touches my bum) – It’s naturally very very curly, but I prefer to...
