Congrats Monica and Raymond! **pic heavy**

Monday, October 11, 2010

Sunday was quite a wonderful day. Beautiful weather, good friends, and I was able to take part in the celebration for two fantastic people. My sorority sister Monica and her fiance Raymond were joined together during a really moving ceremony in Baltimore, MD at the Marriott. I'd never been to that particular spot before but the staff did a great job keeping everything moving and keeping the guests out of the way while the space was being turned over from the ceremony to the reception.

And since I'm a big fatty and always notice these types of things, I also have to tell you about the food. It's been a little while since I've attended a day wedding but if this is what people do now-a-days then I say bring 'em on! There was an omelet and Belgian waffle station, tortellini, two kinds of salad, and beef loin!! It was all delicious and I am not sorry to say that I definitely pigged out a bit - it was completely worth it. How often do you get the chance for Belgian waffles AND cheesy tortellini? Not often enough I tell you!

Now on to what I was wearing. It's a Fatih21 dress and the black skirt on the bottom was kind of 'bandage' style and clung to everything so Spanx was a must. The top part of the dress was a looser fitted almost kimono style top done in a blue and black pattern. I've paired it with heels from some random place in DC that I got for $15 :)

And of course no day could be complete without a makeup close up right?

I like to call this my everyday amplified because this kind of bronze-y gold look is super simple to do and complements almost every outfit. Since on Sunday I was wearing the black/blue dress and it was a day wedding I didn't want to pull out anything too over the top and instead went with this. 

At the base of the look is MAC Cream Color Base in Bronze all over the lid and blended out into the crease. On top of that I put a shimmery gold color, MAC's Honey Lust to seal the cream and prevent creasing. I took a fluffier brush and deepened the crease with MAC's Antiqued and finally darkened the outer corner with MAC's Beauty Marked. It's not that hard to do you just have to make sure to keep the brush moving and use small circles to push the shadow where you want - and also have a skin tone color like MAC's Soft Brown to clean up any mistakes :)

Well I hope you liked thisextra- long post and if you have any questions about anything please don't hesitate to send me an email or FB message!!
