I've been doing trial makeup runs because I refuse to pay someone to do my makeup - not because I'm cheap, but because I do it better. And I already know how I'm doing my hair, another thing that I refuse to hire someone to do for the very same reason. I have confidence in my abilities, yes, but mostly I want to look like myself on that day of days. The focus today was on bridal headpieces. I'm going to wear a veil, but I'm not a tiara kind of gal. I do, however, enjoy headbands immensely. Right now I'm looking for a headband similar to this:
It doesn't have to be flowers, it can be beads such as fake pearls.
The trouble is that these things are pricey and, well, I'm unemployed. I remembered that at one time I moonlighted as a necklace maker and thought 'Hey I can make one of these myself.' I almost got ready to go to AC Moore until I realized there is no AC Moore in Ireland and then figured there had to be something similar. Then I looked out the window/on Google and saw no craft stores that I knew of within a 10 mile radius and thought 'oh hell.' So I brought this issue up with my sister Kate today and she said that I should blog about it and write, 'Rachel, can you make this? Kate says you're very crafty.' My other alternative is to look for something similar, but TII.
So, how about it, ATL? I'll make it worth your while.
