A BLISSful weekendMonday, December 08, 2014
Happy Monday! Only 2 Mondays left til' Christmas! (In case you were wondering.)
I am coming off the high of a long, exhausting and wonderful weekend and am pumped to share it with you!
On Friday, I spent the majority of the day getting the theater venue set up for our big party (I'm not sure if I've mentioned it on the blog before). Bliss is our agency's annual holiday bash and we invite our clients, area business owners and our closest friends to celebrate the holidays and well, ourselves.
It poured rain alllllllllllll day on Friday, but that did not deter from the festivities. In one afternoon, an ordinary theater was transformed into a whimsical snow globe world and I was blown away by the turnout. Partying on center stage, custom holiday cocktails, wine and spirits from amazing vendors, an aerial performance, a live band, a snow machine—Bliss 8 had it all.
While debuting our Bliss 8 film to the audience, I got a little misty-eyed because I'm finally following my bliss and it's the absolute greatest feeling in the world. *pauses for emotional moment*
For only the second time in my life, I got my make-up done by a professional. Since Bliss is such a big deal, us ladies wanted to look our very best and we had our own hair and make-up team brought to the theater. I decided to tackle my hair myself, but I'll never turn down the opportunity to get my face painted pretty.
I've never had airbrushing before, so this was a real treat! In a matter of seconds, my uneven, blotchy skin was transformed to near perfection. I was amazed at how smooth and dewy my face looked (though it was a total bitch to wash off later)! I even sprung for fake lashes that my boss lovingly ripped off my eyes at the end of the night because I was too scared to do it myself.
Before heading home to try and make sense of my disgusting hair (did I mention it was raining the ENTIRE day!?!?), I ducked into one of the theater dressing rooms and took advantage of its bright lighting to capture the details of my exquisite make-up.
Is it weird to say I like the color of my eyes in this picture? Because I totally do. I should walk around in blinding light ALL the time.
