Our Wedding: Rachel & Chris - RachhLoves

I can't believe its been over a month since our Wedding Day.  I'm a wife.

That's craziness. ;-)

I finally have the final highlight video from our wedding day and I'm SO excited to share it with all you beautiful ladies.  I wish you could've all been there with me, but you were definitely in my heart and thoughts on that day (and always!)

Here are some frequently asked questions:

Manicure Monday: Blue Lagoon

After spending what felt like FOREVER (okay, 3 weeks) with super soft, pale nail polish I felt an overwhelming urge to bust out some serious colour today.  Cue the bright blue nail polish I found at The Real Canadian Superstore (a grocery store in Canada).  Their beauty brand Joe Fresh caught my eye with their I-can't-resist-more-nail-polish deal (3 for $10 - are you kidding me?) and stunning array of colours.

Even better? AMAZING COLOUR PAYOFF. This is only ONE coat of polish. Yes, it's that good.

Rachel & Chris: Wedding Day Teaser

It has been quite a crazy past couple of weeks. Wow. I can't believe I'm MARRIED! Our cinematographers and I have put together a little teaser video since the full highlight isn't completed yet. I cry in the video and tear up every time I watch it.  I feel so blessed to have such an incredible group of family, friends and supporters.  I couldn't have done it without you guys!

MANY more videos are on their way! I've been brainstorming like crazy and filmed a few today :) If you have any requests, please let me know!

Love you all.

I cannot believe I'm getting married this Saturday.

Even as I write this there are butterflies (happy ones) in my stomach and my mind is racing with last minute preparations!  I feel so blessed with such amazing family members, and knowledgeable (and patient!) vendors that have helped us along the way.  And YOU guys!!!!  Anytime I had a question or felt stressed, YOU were always there to cheer me up and keep me going.  Everyone has been a huge help in putting this wedding together and we couldn't have done it without everyone.  One of our vendors, PGP Studios offered to create a fun pre-wedding shoot for Chris and I to help get Chris more comfortable with the camera and I thought it would be a great opportunity to teach you guys what I learned through the process of booking them, while giving you guys a peek into Chris and my relationship :)  I had so much fun at the shoot and it makes me so happy that I get to share it with all of your beautiful faces :)

Let me know what you guys think! :)

Get Ready With Me - Easy & Natural Smokey Makeup

With the weather showing promise for a warm, sunny day, Chris and I decided to explore our local farmer's market this morning.  I had about 15 minutes to get ready so I wanted something natural, easy and QUICK!  Here's the look I came up with for our outing :)

My Full Coverage Foundation Routine

Fine, I'll admit it. I had fairly good skin through most of my teenage years. I thought I got away with it until this past year when my skin decided NOW, at 25, it would erupt into big, painful blemishes all over my face.

Fantastic.  And with about a month until my wedding, I am NOT in the mood to fiddle with a new foundation routine.

RachhWeds: Meet Bridesmaid #1 :)

After getting an overwhelming number of requests to meet my bridesmaids, I have finally gotten around to interviewing one!  I have a total of 5 bridesmaids + my maid of honour (I know, massive wedding party, right?!)  To start off the craziness let me introduce you to...

I've been reading all of your comments and responding to as many as I can - I'm so happy you guys like the video!  I had to edit down 30 minutes of solid GOLD footage into a 4 minute video.  It was tough.  Especially when she did the Ciara dance and sang songs from Veggie Tales. <3

Comment below if you have any questions for any of the other girls! :)

Neutral Eyes & Petal Pink Cheeks

Sleet. Gray snow. Sludge. Shovelling 3 feet of packing snow off my car at 7am.  Ah winter, you can be so beautiful and yet so cold-hearted.  With the snow showing no signs of tapering off, I find myself drawn longingly to the warm, bright colours of Spring.  A bright pink cheek and a soft berry lip is just the pick-me-up I need to get started in the morning.  Look out Winter, I'm breaking out the fuchsia nail polish.  

My question for you is: What is your favourite pick-me-up on a cold, dreary winters day?
