Wow, it’s been a while! The week flew by due to the long weekend and all of the sudden the weekend is here again. I guess that’s a good thing!
I spent last weekend upstate trying to finish all the major wedding decisions that really have to be booked now! I went to about a dozen hotels, bed and breakfasts and potential rehearsal dinner venues. Our wedding weekend is a busy weekend for Saratoga, so we have to be on top of everything. It’s kind of a stressful, but I am actually really happy to have major things done early, so I have more time for details later.
One major decision is definitely hair and make up. Of course, I want to look my best, but it’s kind of hard to know exactly what I want. I decided to try out three places that I had found, but knew relatively little about. The most popular places upstate, like Make Me Fabulous, are all booked. I am sure there are still great options, but they are a little harder to find!
Here’s a sample of my trials! I’d love your thoughts! Be critical, it’s cool!
You can see my inspiration on my pintrest board.
Hair and Make Up Trail #1:
The first trial went okay. The salon is super adorable. My first hair look came out pretty well (above), but my hair was not holding curl, so by the second look, it was a little messy and droopy. I liked the make up, it was more smokey than I would end up going, but not bad.
Make Up Trail #2 (no hair). Excuse my unibrow–how embarrassing!
This artist was incredibly talented and fun to work with. The make up was a little heavy, but I think I could work on that.
Last Hair and Make Up Trail #3
This was actually only half a hair trial. I didn’t have it booked, but we had a little extra time. I took the photo after my hair was down. I liked this trial. They make up was really natural, almost what I do myself.
Anyways, I’m just not sure, but I am ready to be done with the decision.
In addition to the wedding planning frenzy, I did mangage to take 2 spinning classes. I can’t pass up a $12 spinning classes at The Revolution. I actually tried it back in August and boy has it caught on! In August there were only 8 people in the class, this time, both the classes I took were packed and they have opened a second studio! The facilities are not quite flywheel caliber, but I love that boutique studios are spreading. I just hope they start renting spinning shoes soon!
