Happy weekend! I try to drink tea with homemade almond milk during the week, but a couple times a week, I hit up that trendy coffee house, I can’t remember it’s name.. hmmm.. they seem to be doing well though…

When I go there, lately I have been ordering:

A Grande, Extra Hot, Unsweetened, Soy, Matcha Green Tea Latte! Geesh, what a mouthful. Please tell me what you order so I don’t feel so demanding! (They DO call me Demanda though… Get it? cause my name is Amanda,….Demanda…or Commanda…)

green matcha unsweetend tea

Anywhoo, the latte was good. I drink them way to fast. I was doing makeup today for a friend of a friends wedding. I had to grab her a set of lashes on the way. Although I’m not a fan of the Quo brand, (these were $7.50!) in a pinch they do the trick. I buy quality lashes wholesale from the states for $2. Shoppers is making bank! Remember last wedding I did when I had to get the QUO glue? Ya, that wasn’t fun.

So I took my coffee, makeup kit and lashes and headed downtown.

The girls were getting ready at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel.

Such an awesome view. You can see the Vancouver convention centre, as well as almost all of Stanley Park in the background.

We spotted those Wall Street Protesters.

The girls all looked stunning, just to give them privacy, I didn’t shove my camera in their faces, but just know I did a fantastic job. I am SOOOO happy to say the next time I do makeup at a wedding….will be my own wedding!!!!!

I was reading some of this wedding book. They say NEVER make your guests pay for anything and we were going to have a dollar bar… hmmmm….I need to land some BIG jobs. I am banking on my new agent….. ha

I have a few jobs to do, but I am taking the rest of the night off. I can do them tomorrow. Hopefully check out the Coquitlam Farmers Market as well.. I googled it the other day and MY WORD- it is going on until Oct. 30!! I thought it was done by now.. Happy news.

I was gone pretty much all day, but I am always sooo excited to come home and see this face…(oh and Mike‘s too;)

Like a button that one, like a button.

Day 3 of Bikrams yoga- GOOD! Except next time I will NOT stand by the heater!! Lesson learned.

What is your Starbucks order????

Happy Weekend you guys! lots of love, light, happiness and FUN!

    I order a Venti Mocha Latte Low Fat with no Whip….I think at that certain place everyone orders a mouthful :)

    The last photo of your puppy (I don’t care if they are 14 they are still puppies to me!) reminds me of my little Gizzie. She looks at me the same way when I come home!

      Will do! My uncle is staying there next week, then my fiancee and I have a night there that I won from the Whistler Water blogging contest. So I’ll be seeing lots of the hotel! Can’t wait. Thanks for the note!! Take care:)
