With the holiday season behind us and now all the gatherings and get togethers are over we can focus on getting back on our normal routine. But I know for me there is one new beauty routine I need to add to my regime and that is covering the dark circles that have formed. Micky has a fantastic way to solve my problem! She suggests in using an eye cream with caffeine to help get the blood circulating. It will also help reduce some puffiness and intense darkness. Then she says and yes it sounds weird but use an orange lip stick or cream blush and blend into the skin to correct the darkness and then the dark circles are gone! I can say that this tip works very well and it has made me look more alert and bright eyed!
Meet Sarah, our newest member of our Real Bride Series!
It was my freshman year of college. It was the end of August and I was riding my bike to a chemistry study group in the library. I heard a girls voice above the crowd say “Do you want to come to Bible Study tonight?” I stopped my bike, I had been looking for a Christian club on campus so I went up to the table. I made eye contact with a boy, I felt sparks run down my spine. I definitely believe in love at first sight now. He introduced himself to me as Lucas and I met everyone else at the table. I went to Christian Challenge that night, Lucas and I started talking about why I cam to ASU and what I was studying. He was on the leadership team so he did what he was supposed to do, he introduced me to a girl that had stuff in common with me. He wasn’t at challenge the next two weeks. I looked though, I wanted to see him again.
The third week I looked back to where he helped out at the soundboard in the back and he was there! Turns out he was a sun devil rep at ASU where he helped get freshman connected at ASU. So as a part of that he had been taking them to the Thursday night football games. Well, that night he ended up in my small group. Most of the people in my group were new so he was introducing himself to them. Then he looked across the circle at me and went “Hi I’m Lucas, what’s your name?” my heart sank a little bit but I smiled and said “My name is Sarah, it’s nice to meet you.”. We spoke that night about how I had been home schooled for 10 years and how I had a Texas accent. We talked for about 45 minutes that night.
Somehow we started talking about how I had lived in Japan. He got excited because he was half Japanese and his mom was from Japan. We spent the rest of the weekend together. He said he knew he liked me when that night we were playing capture the flag and my competitive side came out.
You have been planning your big day for months and maybe even longer. Everything is in it’s place and every detail is figured out and you even have a backup plan to your backup plan in case something goes wrong. Now that the day is here and you have planned your dream wedding, the only thing you need to be focused on is getting married! Not if your lip color has faded a tad or if your hair needs a quick touch up; so let your maid of honor worry about any faux pas that may happen. All she needs is a wedding survival kit complete with things like a sample of your lip color, Band-Aids, bobby pins, stain removal, Q-Tips – the works! They can be purchased already put together for you or you can create it yourself and find an adorable makeup bag to put it all in that your maid of honor can use later! We love this idea because what’s better than looking fabulous? Looking fabulous and not worrying about anything!
How did you and groom meet?
Brandon and I met in 2005 on my first day of work at a Spring Training sports bar, where he was also working at the time.
