Collective Haulage & Cherene's Bachlorette Party & Wedding

*WARNING this post is PIC HEAVY, I tried to squeeze a lot into one post. I've been writing this since Friday and kept editing....

Hi Y'all!!!! I just wanted to do a quickie "collective haul" post..... My MAC 25% off "Sumo" sale stuff finally arrived on Thursday. At first I went crazy like it was a 50% off sale or a "free" sale, then I edited my cart and got control over myself.... I got ......

  • 4 Empty x15 Pro Colour Palettes (time to start depotting)....
  • Naked Honey High-Light Powder ~ Golden Nectar (not sure about it, I haven't opened it yet...
  • Style Warrior e/s ~ Vibrant Grape
  • Refill e/s pans
Black Tied
Sushi Flower
Beauty Marked
Satin Taupe
All That Glitters
Swish

Out of all of that "stuff", I'm not really feeling everything that I ordered....
I don't know how I feel about Black Tied, it's a black with silver glitter... I have Urban Decay's Ammo Palette so this color could be duped with Oil Slick (which I love)....
Bamboo, is probably going back the color doesn't do anything for me.... Its too close to my skin tone and can be easily duped, the same with Satin Taupe.
Swish,
just didn't excite me either.
The Golden Nectar High Light Powder is going back also. Swatched on my hand it doesn't look like something that I would want to put on my face...... I like my MSF in Gold Deposit better. Money is tight and I can't keep something if I don't "love it"....

I also stopped by my MAC Counter in Macy's this week to swatch & pick up "Buckwheat" e/s from the Naked Honey Collection because it was out of stock online. Good thing I went b/c I didn't like it! Weird... I usually like everything MAC so instead I grabbed the Naked Honey Skin Salve bc Vanessa, mi E-Esposa (that's E-Wifey for those of y'all who don't habla espanol) kept raving about it & I'm a copy cat! I also grabbed a Style Warrior Lip Glass in "Style Warrior. It's a perfect nude color on me with a hint of shimmer... I think I might try to pick up a back up b/c this LipGlass is becoming HG status...

Here's my FOTN from last Thursday, I went to NYC for a Bachlorette party for one of my housemates that I went to college with. I'm sorry y'all I don't remember what I used because I was already drinking when I started doing my makeup...Y'all are lucky that I remember to take a freakin' pic of my eyes... It's probably a combo of.....
UDPP
NYX Jumbo Pencil ~ Purple
MAC ~ Poisen Pen
Parfait Amour
UD 24/7 Glide On Pencil ~(waterline)
UD 24/7 Glide on Pencil (lower lashline)
UD e/s ~ Oil Slick
Shisem Lashes XO

OMG! I wore my 1st pair of Shisem lashes!!! I'm in love with Shisem lashes!!!! They are light, not heavy feeling!!! I love the dark band, I didn't even need to line my eyes!!!! Guess what I made it back to the Manhattan Club where were staying WITH BOTH LASHES!!!! Y'all know how I always lose lashes in bars......

So as some of you may know I went to a bachlorette party on Thursday and the Wedding was yesterday (Sat. 6/27). It was the best bachlorette party I've ever been too. Cherene the bride has friends from childhood, high school, college, and after. There were about 15 of us and we all got along beautifully... It was amazing I felt like I knew these girls all my life. We all exchanged numbers, emails, & FB's. When we saw each other at the wedding today it was like old girlfriends back together again. A few of them live in NYC so I'll be "Metro Northin' it down to Manhattan. Maybe I'll have some new readers :) We stayed at the Manhattan Club, one of Cherene's friends parents own a timeshare/hotel so we had two rooms on the 17th floor :)
Here's some pics!
Manhattan Club
(this wasn't our room but they kinda look like this)


Ummm... "Position Balloons"....
Penis Cookie Platter
The most amazing & detailed "erotic" cookies I've ever had. The company is based in Seattle, WA, but they do ship within the US. The Erotic Bakery (site is NSFW)


Sexy Crazy Bride to be!

Us soliciting male "entertainment" from random guys at Social.....

We reserved access to the rooftop bar & our own lounge in the club.

Only in NYC not only can you buy Porn 24/7, they have 'LIVE, LIVE, LIVE'' Girls inside...

I think we were at a place called Blarney's??? (Viv & Laura)

Cherene & Shanna (the bride & her sister)

4:30am Real New York Pizza!

New Friends? I gave one of these guys my # (whoops)....

Someone name Johnny Bravo keeps txting me to see what me & the "bride are up too"..... We brought them back to the Manhattan Club to strip for us in exchange for beer, a cigarette and $2. They got shy so we only gave them a cigarette. *DISCLAIMER - DO NOT COPY OUR CRAZY ASSES AND BRING HOME RANDOM GUYS FROM BARS BACK TO YOUR HOTEL. IT'S NOT SAFE OR SMART. There were 7 of us, most of us are New Yorkers (we lost some girls during the night). We were staying at the Manhattan Club and the hotel has crazy security so we know that if they tried to pull something they'd be out real quick.

Sunrise
NYC at 5:45am, on my way back to Grand Central Station (I never made it to bed, I figured I'd catch the 6:06 am train home instead of sleeping at the Manhattan Club till 11am checkout time)


~The Wedding ~
Cake!

Outdoor Ceremony View (lol @ the sign)

Bridesmaids (Samantha, Laura, Shanna & Susie)


Me & Cherene (the ocean air & humidity poufed my hair)

Candy Station!!!! So cool you could scoop up all kinds of white chocolate dipped candy and take it home in Chinese Takeout Containers....

XoXo
