FOTD & OOTD: Using Spitfire & Athena’s Kiss

Finally did a quick look using a lippie and lipgloss from the MAC Wonder Woman collection: Spitfire and Athena’s Kiss. I am loving this combo! It looks amazing in person. Also added in a OOTD since I haven’t in awhile. Top and belt is from ‘Papaya’. Leggings from Ross. And my favorite boots from Chinese Laundry.

But first! I have some news to share with you all…we have finally picked a wedding date and booked our venue! We will be getting married on March 25, 2012 (a day after my dad’s birthday!). There’s no significance to the date, but we figured it won’t be as hot weather wise (as oppose to doing it on our actual anniversary in July), and because it’s during the “off-season”, it saves us a ton of money to put toward other things.

So we are very excited! I know it’s gonna be stressful trying to get everything together but I have a great group of friends who are ready and willing to help, and I am just looking forward to also being able to share this day with our friends and families. :)

Outfit of the Day (OOTD) & Flashes of Light

I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow because for the past 2 days I’ve been seeing random, sporadic flashes of light when I blink which is a symptom of Retinal Detachment which I am hoping and praying I don’t have since the only way to fix it is through surgery, and surgery on the eye is not my idea of a good time. LOL. So I am freaking out just a tad bit, but I hope it’s not that and is related to something more benign like stress or headaches. When it first happened, I honestly thought I was crazy and just seeing things out of the corner of my eye, I didn’t even know that the flashes of light could be caused from my own eye! And it’s been that way the past 2 days, and I read if it’s left untreated can cause blindness- so I am seeing a doc tomorrow! I am hopeful as I do not have the most common symptom of retinal detachment which is floaters, and can obstruct vision. *Crosses fingers*

Anyway, at the request of a reader, I am going to start doing more OOTD (outfit of the day) posts. I think the reason I lack in that department is because I am always rushing out the door and never think to take a pic. And because doing self full body shots isn’t easy! Usually I have to get the fiance to help me out but he leaves later than I do. Boo.

I look like a cheeseball in this pic, like I am representing MAC’s Tartan Tale collection HAHA. I love that my purse matches my boots exactly, I didn’t plan it that way and I bought them separately so I was pleased it didn’t look a bit off. The boots look weird in this pic, they are over the knee and have a more pointed top but in this pic it looks like a straight across cuff, probably the angle it was taken.

Anyways, hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
