I do most of my writing about products, but today I thought I’d share a little about me. I got engaged a year ago to the love of my life, Marco. We met in Tampa, Florida, after he won a green card in the lottery and moved to America from Italy. A few years later we ended up in Italy where our love grew and we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Now, we are living in New York and planning a September wedding in Italy. It is beyond stressful moving for the fifth time this year, starting a new job with L’Oreal and planning a destination wedding. Luckily, the venues in Italy do a lot of the work that a normal wedding planner would so I just have to give them direction…if I could pin Marco down long enough to discuss. I’m most nervous about my hair and makeup. Here in the US it’s easy to do trial runs and find the perfect person to make you beautiful for the most important day of your life. I’m going to rely on friends to help me find someone that I can trust, otherwise, I may be doing it myself. Being in the beauty industry for this long has made me a control freak when it comes to makeup and I’m hoping I can let go and just enjoy getting pampered and beautiful. Stay tuned for more posts about the big day and some of the great products I find along the way to help me get and stay beautiful.
