Saturday morning 6am the alarm goes off. I jump out of bed. I am on a mission. I got in my truck and drove across the border to Bellingham because I knew Charlotte Russe had the shoes I want to get married in. Dee and I searched Vancouver high and dry and could not find them. But alas, I got em.
See, I wanted “Ruby Slippers” like dorothy wears in Wizard of Oz but more modern. Why? Well, ever since I was about 5 years old, I was obsessed with Wizard of Oz, the fact that I always thought there was more out there and the song “Somewhere over the Rainbow” has touched my heart since I was a little girl.
When I met Mike, I felt like I had finally met MY “Somewhere over the Rainbow”, and I’ve know for a long time that I wanted to wear red dorothy shoes at our wedding.
“There’s no place like home”, another quote that tugs at my heart and I am blessed to have my wedding back in my hometown Saskatoon.
Funny thing is, those shoes were $35 bucks! Score. AND if you buy 1 pair, you got the 2nd pair for $15, so these made it in my bag home too.
My Ruby Slippers are size 8. They feel really, really good. 7 were too small, but I got these heel pads to spilt the difference because ideally I probably would have been a 7.5
I got this at Target. Is it just me, or does everything seem static-y lately? First time in my life I bought this stuff.
Cute! got these stocking stuffers. Little mini Vaseline’s jars with lip therapy. Need that in these cooler temps!
Ohhhhh great. Me and Sephora. I got a waterproof brown liner (makeup forever) a black waterproof liner by Urban Decay, a brownish (waterproof) shadow pencil from Urban Decay too. AND a hot Nars lip gloss in the colour Sweet Revenge.
I’m going for a semi-dramatic brown smokey eye with a beachy-glow type feel. (I really need to test this out. I’ve showed this pic before, but I LOVE this makeup!)
Isn’t that pretty?
Ok… I’m outta here! Talk sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon.
