NYE - Pic Heavy, don't read unless you're prepared! - OOTN/FOTN

G & I wanted to do something different this year, we've done the clubbing thing and frankly we're just over it, I'm almost 30! I also wasn't looking forward to driving anywhere near DC, the amount of drunkies on the road is unsafe! I was ecstatic the moment I received an invite from Rachel, my awesome buddy (also my weddings MUA!!), for NYE. I couldn't say no to her invite, hadn't seen her since her baby shower (about a whole year!)! 

My issues with NYE prep:

  • I got home a little late from work and didn't have much time to get ready, so excuse my application sloppiness.
  • I didn't get a chance to pull in the dress at the bust line so you'll find it doesn't look quite right.
  • I should've worn nude pantyhose, the dark was totally wrong!
  • Should've stretched the shoes a second time, the first time around didn't cut it! Thank goodness I was able to take the shoes off at the party.
  • Now I wasn't joking when I said this would be pic heavy, if this isn't your cup of tea, then don't read any further :P
  • Running late as always, but I found time to take a few pics (doesn't help hubby is so much taller than me, I look sooo tiny)

Bebe Dress
Spanx highwaisted pantyhose
Aldo "Franchette" pumps
Studio Fix Fluid in NW30
MAC Sheer Pressed Powder in NW30
MAC Blush in Margin
MAC MSF in Comfort (contour)
MAC MSF in By Candlelight (highlight)
MAC Lovelorn & Hue l/s
MAC Baby Sparks dazzleglass
ELF Dramatic lashes (which I didn't they don't look right...)
Maybelline Colossal Mascara in Black
When Rachel's husband brought out the YSL's, I think the room went silent for at least 5 seconds! I had to take shots of her HOT shoes!!!
Here we find Elyse and I taking pics of each other with our Nikons, love!
<--Lovely Ilana preparing for her Lemon Shot (I think that's what it was...I don't quite remember)
Aren't these two gals just lovely? Ilana & Rachel! <3 <3 <3 <3 -->DSC_0526 
Did I mention how funny they are too!
It's hard for both of us to look at the same camera! 
Isn't this couple just the cutest! They got married last weekend!!!! DSC_0537

You look absolutely stunning!!!! Seriously! Thank you so much for sharing all of those photos with us. It looks like y'all had a great time! The candid photos are awesome! (I notice everyone looks extra happy with their dranks in hand. Champagne always makes me giddy! LOL!)

You and your hubby are so cute together! Aww! Sean is still being shy and has yet to give me permission to post a picture of him!

well i have combo skin so some days im oily some days im super a freak lol it does give the dewy look but i used the hd powder so kinda give it more of a matte finish if that makes any sense (see every mua believes certain products work differently now its on you how you want to make something should definitely try it at a counter before you buy) anyways the mac well it doesnt shimmer like my revlon thats why i used it. and honestly i dont even know what color its in my mua just looks at me and goes "here you go this is your color" and i say ok i trust her(but i believe its NC30). Now for the oily part...this one is tricky since i went to work and i work at a restaurant so im sweating (woman dont sweat they glisten so scratch the sweating part =]) picking up and delivering food to tables my face got that wouldNT be fair if i said right after 5 hours...i would have to use it when im not working. which should hopefully maybe be tomorrow so i can give it a whole day and see how it holds up i should have put that on my review lol

@ April - Yes, her outfit was slammin!
@ Kate Gene - I never asked for permission, uh oh! George is super shy, these are ALL the shots of him, lol. We prolly are one of the oldest bloggers out there, pahahaha. BTW - we went through tons of bottles of it...I honestly stopped counting the glasses! I also took a shot of Grand Marnier at the end of the night, I was DONE =/
@ Hollywood - Thank you! I know, I was speechless when I saw them!
@ The Beautifier - You are soooo sweet, thank you!!! The shoes are pretty hot, shame I'm already married, lol. I kid, I kid!
@ Miss P - Thanks :D - I was very lucky to be at a house party, I could take off the shoes practically the whole night :) In order for me to get pics of George, they need to be candids, it's rare I get a good pic of him looking @ the camera.
@ Rai - It was on sale for $449 recently (right after Xmas, not so sure about now). It's a great investment (esp for me, I hope and pray someday I'll have kids to take pics of).
