So, the countdown has already begun. Its like around 6 weeks to the wedding so I thought I would do a weekly update post. Hell lot of things to do and run about but my history is even worse. I am person to whom the choice of clothes or beauty treatments does not really come on its own. Yeah, the irony seeing that I run an almost beauty blog 😀 😀 Anyways so let me just put down what all happened in the first week.
And, btw, since it is the shradh time, we have not yet started shopping. All that would probably take place in the second and third week of October and the rest remaining would be in November. The jewelery and some of the sarees are ready so I have to just get the blouses stitched. So, what all I have started is facials and a bit of others.
I did ask for the bridal package but it had a lot of things which I was not interested in and I do like to keep a choice in getting different treatments from different places so I declined to take that. My choice of treatments is pretty limited. And, since I have only 3 weeks to the engagement, I do have to cram in a lot of things right now!
So, last Sunday, I got a cleanup for the first time in my life. Earlier, my trysts with parlors used to end with waxing and this all is kinda baffling. When I got the cleanup for the first time, I was literally hoping my face to glow like some one has placed a bulb under it. But, of course, nothing close happened. Btw, they have all kinds of cleanups (not facials) – gold, pearl, diamond??? Seriously? Its damn confusing for first timers!
My advise if you are a first timer – take the basic one and see how the services are and how it reacts on your skin. Also, get things planned quite in advance so that you have time to gauge the reactions on your skin and treat it accordingly. Don’t land up in the parlor at the nick of time and get a treatment for the first time in your life. I got the Shahnaz treatment which hardly lasted for 15 minutes. I felt it was a waste of money but everyone is saying that face cleanups only show difference when you get them done in regular intervals.
Anyways, since I have to get a facial trial way before my wedding, I am planning to get the facial this weekend so that there is 15 days of time minimum in between two of them, the second being right before engagement. Aah…also I got facial threading done and my face is looking so clean now 😀 And, I got my eyebrows also done, finally!! Nah, I really did not find any change in my face. Its just like it was 😐
I got a hair deep conditioning treatment with L’Oreal mythic range but honestly I did not like it so I am thinking of going to the nearby spa for hair and scalp massages. I am hoping that it would turn out well. Fingers crossed!
Huh…this is the most difficult part. I am trying to skip almost everyday but of course you are tired or its too late or something or other excuse is always there. So, I am finding out what can I do.
I was thinking of swimming but chlorine is something I am not willing to risk right now and I do feel kinda lazy to go and swim as well. So, probably I will stick to skipping for now and get a yoga mat for regular surya namaskars.
So, since it is shradh time, I can really not do any major shopping but mom said you can start with buying everyday things. I wanted to go to the market but of course it being me, I lazed around all day on 2nd October. But, I do have a tentative list of things I need.
I have also zeroed down on what foundation I would be buying. The shade is something I will go and check and then decide. I need a good eye liner and mascara which will stay long and have good pigmentation and also does not smudge. Can you suggest me some? Some of my friends were suggesting Maybelline. I am guessing the Colossal range.
Do drop in suggestions on mascara and eyeliner! And, will bring the week 2 updates soon enough.
