I never knew how ugly I was until I got engaged. Now, I’m positively flush with suggestions from EVERYONE on how to make myself pretty for the big day. And let me tell you guys something, it requires months and months of prep work. You think people just get pretty overnight? Bah. No, they buy lots and lots of expensive products, use them religiously, and then bada-bing bada-boom they look way better than us normals.
I need argan oil for my hair, vitamin C infused serums and moisturizers for my face, all natural cleansers for my everywhere, weekly body scrubs, lots of exfoliation, gold infused facials, pilates, short bursts of intense fat-burning cardio, eyelash extensions, skin brighteners, teeth whiteners, and loads and loads of other products I previously did not know existed and that cost obscene amounts of money.
So, instead of all that, I’m just hiring a photographer with bangarang photoshop skills.
I mean, I’ll show up clean, with make-up on (dewy methinks), and my hair looking lovely, but there is no way I’m spending half my wedding budget on products that promise me a prettier tomorrow- I’m marrying the love of my life, my tomorrow is looking pretty damn gorgeous.
