Fall Trend: Bergundy Lips

Bergundy Lips

 

I really love the dramatic effect a bergundy lip gives you.  It is bold and daring and acts as the accessory to your outfit.  Fall is the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone when it comes to makeup.  I’m not a big lipstick fan, but when I do wear lipstick, it serves a purpose.  This bergundy lip allows you to go minimal and light on the rest of your makeup, but still says va-va voom.  As you can see, it looks gorgeous on all hair colors and skin shades.  Next time you’re out, try a darker shade of lipstick for a dramatic and beautiful fall look.

DIY Tissue Holder

I am a very emotional person.  And I always lose it when a bride walks down the aisle and as much as I know I am going to cry, I never seem to have enough tissues.  So, for my wedding, I wanted to make sure there were little tissue packets for guests to take.  I scoured the internet for different DIY ideas and came across one for a fabric tissue holder.  I thought this would be the perfect for the guests and a neat take away that every woman could use in their purse, car, or in a diaper bag.

Here is the tutorial from Two Brown Birds : DIY Tissue Holder with Pattern

I went to Joann’s and pick up contrasting prints and I also used scraps that I had.  I made around 40 (for 140 guests and had a few left over) and spend around $5-$7.  I picked up a few boxes of tissues from the dollar store and inserted four folded tissues in each holder.  I also recommend making a sign by the tissues so people realize what they are.  Something like : For your happy tears, For those tears of joy, or For when you boo hoo as they say I do.
