Indian Wedding!

I went back to Seattle last week for two of my best friends' wedding. Sometimes it's only when you leave that you realize how amazing your friends are, and I miss Seattle ferociously. 

Anyway, they had an incredibly beautiful ceremony in a drop dead gorgeous temple. I had never been to an Indian wedding before, and it was so incredibly lovely. I didn't understand a word, but I guess no one else did either because the Priests speak in Sanscript, which is their holy language and precursor to the colloquial Indian language (somewhat akin to Latin and English). It was so happy and lively.

The gorgeous bride and groom.

I even got to wear a bindi!

All the women wore beautiful sarees, and I was able to wear one as well! I never wear colour so it was a very different look for me, but I felt extremely fabulous. I wish I could wear one all the time!

I ate SO MUCH food that I thought I was going to fall through the floor! I love Indian food so much-- I even joked that I should divorce and find an Indian husband so his mother could cook authentic meals for us all the time! Haha. Their reception was awesome, and we danced for hours. The way they dance is exhilarating, it's so energetic and makes you feel like you are floating. I had the best time ever, and I was so sad for it to end!

Hiatus + News!

I apologize for the hiatus I've had, I had my phone stolen a while back (thank you SF) and it's made me so disconnected! It's hard for me to want to be online when I couldn't text or talk to any of my friends, and I also spent another week in Seattle where I didn't really have internet either. I did take the opportunity to get very far in Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire, which has kind of ruined my life a little (but more about that later).

Anyway, exciting news! My brand Swagger Cosmetics is going to be featured in the upcoming November Beauty Box 5 box! Beauty sampling programs, where you pay a nominal fee (usually between 10-15USD)  and receive a package of new products to try out every month, are getting quite popular. They look for new brands and products for you to try out, so you don't have to! I've always wanted to subscribe to one, so imagine my absolute delight when I was asked to participate! Anyway, I've been busy putting together over 2,000 deluxe samples for you all to try out-- and have watched A LOT of x-files in the process (which may be the best show to ever grace television).
