Its November, my friends! October was incredibly awesome & busy for me, despite I had the typical ailments that come along with the changing of the leaves & yelling “Trick or Treat!” at your neighbors’ door. Guys, I have already dealt with an abundance of colds, sneezing fits, SNIFFLES & feeling run down. Yet, that couldn’t stop me from easily one of the busiest months of the year for me, which included one of my dearest friends, Amanda’s, wedding!

Having never been in a wedding before, I had such a great journey learning just what it is you do when you’re given the honor of being a Bridesmaid (Can I add it to my resume? Because I think I did well, haha!). From going with the Bride-to-be to pick out her gorgeous wedding dress, my friends & me deciding on our dresses, the bridal shower where I got to organize the “What’s in Your Bag?” game, the party bus bachelorette party to…oh, yeah, the WEDDING! it was such a magical experience, & Amanda was such a sweet Bride to her maids, before the big day, she gave us each tote bags with our names on them with goodies like flip-flops & nail polish & I made quick work of every corner of that bag….

Purse Must Haves

I did not do my own hair, & am not one to do anything special, ever, to it. Since this was such a special day for all of us, I had a stylist give me a dreamy up ‘do with curls….here I am after she just finished, I felt beautiful.

While I did my own make-up, I brought basically my entire bathroom drawer…or, better yet, Walmart,  in that handy bag, & see those vitamin bottles below? Those are my good friends, Centrum VitaMints & Emergen-C Immune+ Chewables. If you’re thinking, isn’t Centrum for my Grandparents? Think again! Whenever I hear I am going to be stressed out & crazy busy, I always make sure to have their vitamins in my bag, & Centrum’s are my new favorite for an adult multivitamin with a refreshingly minty taste you can take/enjoy any time of day with or without food or water. No more horse pills! 🙂


And, who has not noticed Emergen-C Immune+ Chewables in the Pharmacy section at Walmart? These great little bursts of citrus offer healthy immune support day & night. Since I’m the Queen of forgetting to take vitamins, I always try to remember these chewables in my bag, whether I am off to work, or being in a wedding!

Decisions, decisions at Walmart!

Doing my own make-up turned out to be incredibly easy & came out pretty good. My biggest dilemma was ensuring my lips stayed hydrated throughout the day; from my early morning hair appointment, to getting my lipstick on. This is where Chapstick Total Hydration comes in. 100% Natural,Advanced nourishing formula with argan oil, avocado butter & rosehip oils, this Chapstick instantly smooths & moisturizes, & mind you, this is coming from someone who is very picky about her lip balms! (And, bonus points: the awesome coconut flavor).

With ensuring that these necessities & the rest of my Bridesmaid gear were on me, I had an absolute wonderful day, from morning til well into the evening, being apart of Amanda’s & her hubby, Marc’s, wedding. No sniffles, no sneezes & no dried out lips meant for no running mascara or chalky lip color!
