A few weekends ago I was volunteering at the National Bridal Show, and it got me thinking in a very 'wedding' state of mind. I spent that weekend lusting over all the pretty dresses, meeting tons of blushing brides, and falling in love with BCBG MAXAZRIA’s latest perfume Bon Chic (check out my rave here). I have had a lot of pretty things on my mind since then. I sampled way too much wedding cake in two days, and discovered a lovely new flavor - pink velvet. Anyways, that led me to today’s list of weekly wonderings.
As usual I will fill out my answers and hopefully you will too. I can’t wait to see some of your responses to these. I am hoping to be inspired to try some new things, especially with question 2!
Do you reach for cool toned or warm toned colours to wear? Personally this whole cool or warm tone thing has always confused me. I know it has to do with skin tone and such, but really how serious is it? I don’t pick my clothing colours or makeup shades based on that, probably because I hardly know the difference. I don’t have a clue which would suit me better so I don’t pick based on that, but if I take a look at my wardrobe and makeup case I think I lean toward choosing warmer toned shades for my skin tone.
What is your favourite flavor of cake or cupcakes? As I mentioned, I fell in love with pink velvet cake this past weekend. I don’t know if that comes in cupcake form but if it did I would buy a box ASAP. I also tried some yummy ones over the holidays and discovered that I really like a good old fashioned plain vanilla. It has to be a good quality one and has to have good icing, but I found out I am pretty simple as far as flavours go. I’d try a lot of different ones to expand my cake tasting horizons, but I think I’d end up back to basics at the end of the day.
What is your relationship status? Since Valentine’s Day is coming up and I just spent that weekend surrounded by happy brides-to-be, it does make me realize how far I am from all of that. I am not one to wallow in singe-girl self-pity, but I did take note of my single lady status. The blushing brides were deciding what shade of ribbon to have on their invitations and it made me laugh thinking how I don’t have invitations, nor anywhere (like a wedding) to invite anyone to. I’m quite happy as I am, and I am only 20 so I’m not really worried, but it made me curious where the rest of the world was with this relationship situation.
What colour were/will your wedding nails be? This question is tricky for me. I want to be bride-ish and go with something simple and classy, but I want to still be true to me which would be closer to hot pink or leopard print. Luckily that choice is far away for me, but it made me wonder what other women wore on their wedding day. I have heard a lot about painting your toes blue as the ‘something blue’, so I think that might be pretty common. I can’t wait to hear what you guys had on your nails or plan to pick for your big days!
