Vex in the City

Hey P&G friends,

(Often times, I think of my blog post titles before I write them because the titles help me to create the content. I was in the car on the way to the airport returning home from the wedding.)
Last week, I alluded to my cousin’s wedding. We had loads of fun. The wedding and reception were elegant and fabulous. Congrats to R&S!!

KJ, my chum, needed to get some shadows for the wedding. She loves orange, so I recommended Firespot (MoonBathe). We decided to hit up a M.A.C store/counter. I noticed that there was a Macy’s very close to our hotel, so we went there. Man, we were disappointed, when we were learned that there was no MAC counter in the store. We decided to go to an upscale mall in the area. (It is a nice mall and if you are ever in that area, you must go there.) So we found the MAC store. Most of the MoonBathe was sold out. We hightailed ourselves to the Macy’s, once again there was no MAC counter. Finally, a store with a MAC counter, Nordstrom, YAY for Nordie!! Well, this counter was also sold out of Firespot. I had to think quickly. (I am glad that I am MAC devotee) I was able to recommend a combination of Fab and Flashy (C-Shock) with Amber Lights to achieve a similar look. I also recommended a blush that she loves. I am glad that I was able to use my powers for good!

Ok here is why I was truly vexed. You, lovely readers, voted on the hairdo I was to wear to the wedding. Rihanna was selected. I was cool with the pick.

Went to get my hair done on the Wednesday and the ‘do had to be modified. No problems. Thursday on the plane, I am trying to position myself, so I will not interrupt the chignon. Everything is going fine! By Friday, my chignon was popping out of the pins and band. Shucks, the hair did not hold up for the wedding. I had to wear the hair down for the wedding. (All I needed was a wind machine 😉 )

I asked Mr. Maven to take a picture of the ‘do Wednesday, but the picture never happened. Therefore, I have no record of the chic-looking bun. 😦 I will publish some approved photos in a future entry.

Have a wonderful Fourth of July (Independence Day) celebration. The day is also Mama Maven’s birthday, so Mr. Maven and I will be hosting her BBQ/Birthday Celebration, which means I will be cooking all night. Have fun and be safe!

Living Freely,
