at least 5 times a day.

i can't stop listening to this song. found the gem via pandora and my life hasn't been the same since. plus i love the dancing and i wish sooooooooo so so so bad grant and i could dress up like this and go to a masquerade.



p.s. question. what did everyone do with their bridals? did anyone else get like a 16x20 and not know what to do with it? and another question. what does everyone do with old makeup? i really just like the idea of finding a product and sticking to that. the same mascara, eyeliner blah blah. however the process of finding your signature lipstick comes with trial and error. ya know? in my drawer i use about five things but the drawer is full. which is fine, i guess. however under the sink there is this basket.... and it's full. and no i'm not talking about old mascaras, more stuff like this, that i just don't want anymore. ???

haha, i am the same with songs. i play them OVER AND OVER again. i can't help it! and i have some large bridals that i don't really know what to do with either! we had them up at our reception, and i have a few around the house, but if i put them all up, it would look like a shrine to myself! haha. anyway, i have the problem with makeup too. i have so much old crap that i have only used once or twice because i try it and then i dont like it. especially with lipstick! it is totally trial and error. we should figure out some sort of make-up swap! in a sanitary, hygenic way! i think if the makeup was only used once or twice, it's not that big of a deal!

The makeup is so pretty! Why don't you wear it? I am the same way though. I just keep it in my makeup bag forever thinking that SOMEDAY I might wear it.

I had a few bridals displayed at my wedding. My mom took one and then we just have the other one hanging up in our bedroom.

Britt: I gave all of my old make up when I got married to my niece Evelyn, she is nine and LOVED it!. I gave it to her in a cute basket and I know it is getting way more use then it did in my drawer, she has tea parties with her friends and they put on the make up first, it's cute!
Also, I would hold on to those bridal pictures... I don't have mine hung up either, so I asked my mother in law; she said it's more sentimental for your family years down the road! How fun is it to see your mom all dressed up in an old wedding photo?! So I plan on hanging mine somewhere down the line when my kids can see there pretty momma! Plus until your kids grow up every picture is replaced with theirs anyway!
p.s. I love your mother in laws entries, it's so hard to see what is happening and not doing anything about it, so keep posting them because I plan on doing it vicariously through her!

i love finding a new song that excites me and even more love a great music video to go with it!

you should make a photo wall...i've been thinking about doing that. that way, you can use all sorts of pictures that you don't not want to put up, but don't quite have a place for it.

you really don't want that makeup anymore? i always like having a stash that i can go back to when i feel the need for change or when i have a special event and need a fresh look.

Oh my gosh I love one republic britt! Everytime we get in the car I turn on one republic and preston always laughs and kinda rolls his eyes like "seriously again??" I've never seen this video though, love it. Maybe we should try to find a masquerade and dress up and go together!! .... i think that would be really fun :) .... i don't know what are chances of finding one around here are though....
Anyway your comment on my blog was so cute and made me laugh. ha. I'm looking forward to talking.... and I know you were kinda joking about what you said but kinda not. But we know that is what's going to happen right?!? ha.
As far as makeup goes I'm the exact same way. I have a case of my everyday makeup (but really only use a few) and then a bin of "backup" makeup that I hardly ever use and have even cleaned it out a few times but don't get rid of the majority of it. Do you not like bare minerals? It looks like pretty eye shadow. I'm to the point now though where we're running out of room for everything so I'm starting to just throw things away and I don't even care (acutally we take to d.i.) But i'm sure you could give that to someone, like your mom or a friend, and they could get good use out of it.

ha. once i fall in love with a song, i put it on repeat and lehi hates it. cause ovbiously it gets overplayed. {for him} but not for me! i become THAT obsessed with it.

as for makeup? oh my gosh... i have a basket.. well, two baskets full of makeup under my sink. it just sits there collecting dust. and i may or may not use funky colored makeup from the basket once a year for halloween. but that's about it.

lehi + sasha said...

oops. that was me. i was logged in on bijo.

p.s
lehi and i were suppose to go to this masquerade ball last year and he got sick, so we ended up not going. but i did research for gowns and i found this place that rents these BEAUTIFUL gowns for $40. i'll have to tell you about it in person when we go shopping.

i like to keep good finds to myself and limited friends. ha. i'm so selfish. :)

Loving this song! Thanks for sharing!

I am no help with the bridals thing. I didn't get bridals for that exact reason. It's not that I don't love them, but I was like..what will I do with them after we display them at the reception, ya know? I say hang them everywhere. They would make you happy and remind you of your fun wedding and awesome dress! Do it!

I'm also no help on the make-up thing. I use eye shadow and get sick of it and buy a new one adn then keep the half-used one in my make-up bag thinking I'll use it again some day. But I never do. I should just throw it out I guess.

Anyway, this comment is lame and not helping or answering questions, so I'll stop now. Happy Friday!

do love this song. one republic doesn't produce a bad one, i swear. as far as the make-up goes, i'm like you. i use the same five things every single day. the only thing i allow myself to splurge on (and i think you already know this) is lipstick/lip gloss and BLUSH, because you can change those up with different outfits and what not. when i have a bunch of old crap, i seriously just have to throw it out. or i give it to my cousins who are small and like to play dress-up. but if i'm not drastic, it sits and clutters and ends up driving me nuts. i JUST cleaned out my guest bathroom, and you would've believe how much crap i had in there. it's very liberating. try it. you really won't think twice about the stuff that you throw out. this i can promise.

Jake and Jenna said...

oh. and as for the bridals, mine turned out horrible. but what one we DID like is hanging in my mom's house. i felt kind of stupid putting mine up for some reason in my own home. i almost want to take our wedding ones down and replace them with cool family pictures or something. but the wedding was so long ago, ya know? i don't know. i'm sure you'll figure out something fabulous, as always.

Kyle and Nicky said...

Great song! As far as the make up, my sisters and I hold an annual make up swap (just not any eye makeup). I don't know if that would be an option for you, but it is always fun! I also saw on Rachel Ray once that you can melt down all the lipsticks and create one master color and while it's runny/gooey pour it back into the tube and stick it in the freezer to set? Maybe that is an idea?

i only got a few photos of myself at my wedding, and didn't get them printed because i hadn't a clue what to do with them. same with wedding pictures. after awhile i started feeling narcissistic having so many pics of craig and i at our wedding up all over the place. let me know if you figure out a good idea!

as for the makeup...i don't know either. maybe you could have a makeup swap with close friends.... like really close friends....the kind you actually wouldn't mind swapping makeup with. that would only be a couple for me, but it's still better than wasting it all :).
