Guys, why had I never owned a poncho until this moment in my life? When we were on our last two days in Cusco, Peru, I picked up this poncho on a whim. The weather was a tad colder than I had anticipated and I was out of my long-sleeved tops. With alpaca yarn and textiles everywhere across the country, I figured my closet could use an alpaca poncho… and I was right.
Ooo-eeey, friends. It’s been warm around these parts this summer and I’ve been LOVIN’ it! Besides the risk of sweating through your silk top or the chance of melted makeup face, one thing that’s never safe from the heat is your hair. At a certain point, no amount of serum or hairspray can control the frizz, and for that very reason, I always have a few updo hairstyles up my sleeve so I can still look put together in the heat. And, with it being wedding season, having one that is chic enough to wear with a cocktail dress is a must-have.
Alright, friends. Let’s dive into a wedding-related post. Like I mentioned in my full wedding post where I shared our Wedding Day Photo Diary, I am going be going into depth about certain wedding-related topics over the next few months. Today we’re talking beauty: makeup, hair, jewelry. I’ll be sharing my tips as well as answering some wedding beauty questions I got from you all!
Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut runs “Liquid Sundays” every Sunday through the summer. The idea is to bring a Vegas-style pool party to Connecticut, complete with a DJ, obnoxiously Instagram-able floaties, and buckets of cocktails (no, seriously, a bucket full of booze…the bartender laughed at me when I asked her if it was “just for one person” or if I was “supposed to share it.” The answer is…it’s just for you. Vegas-style pool party-goers don’t share their buckets of booze.)
