Yup! I totally get where you’re coming from. If theres even a chance it could be the day you better believe my makeups on point and I’m wearing something I feel great in!
And especially since you guys are LD and only get to see each other once a month it makes sense you’d want to get done up because it has to happen one of these visits! When my boyfriend and I were LD I would put extra effort in just because it had been so long since we’d seen each other. You have even more reason because a proposal is happening soon. Hope he doesn’t keep you waiting too much longer!

It’s motivating me to keep on top of my skincare routine (I’m bad at letting it slip) which tbh is important as my skin gets so dry anyway which then means redder cheeks than normal etc.
We have two weekends away so as I’d normally make a bit of extra effort for a weekend away I’ll just do that. I think more importantly for me though, I’ve lost a lot of weight this past year so that will be noticeable in the photos if there are any.

Just in case guys, I’m not really stressed about it at all I just wanna look pretty for the pictures! Sure, he might not have anything planned to take pictures during the proposal, but I love pictures and I’ll be taking a million selfies when it happens lol He doensn’t live with me, but he’s seen me at my worst (puking, diarrea, stinky farts lol), I’m not trying to “lie” to him or anything, I’m just honestly enjoying the wait 🙂 Not every girl gets to know for SURE it’s gonna happen (many get hints, but I know for SURE, we had a talk lol) so I’m in a “pre-engagement” high! 😀
And I’m not gonna lie, I LOVE focusing on myself! I’m a mom and a college student, so I’m usually always concentrated on the kid or studies, and buying make up before? I felt guilty! “I could buy my kid some bubbles or a cute little toy for $10!” But this time I feel like I have an “excuse”, I see him once a month so I wanna be “on point” lol So using $10 on make up? Walking out guilt free with $10 spent on ME? Felt great!!!
But yeah, I really don’t mind any way he does it. I’m sorry for the Too Much Information, but he took me to a motel for “us” time (mom moved in on September, and my kiddo is here also so lol) and I didn’t have make up… or anything on lol And I thought to myself “If he proposed now, it’d be epic. Him and me in a romantic get away, nothing between us <3 Yeah! I’d love it” So if course, if he catches me in my “Study gear” like I call it, my scrubs or my pjs lol, I don’t mind. I wanna marry him that’s it! But I also won’t mind looking faaaabulous on pictures! Specially since I know it’ll happen in “our” spots (we have some romantic spots we call “ours” and we go there randomly, so I never know when it could go down lol!)

You girls have pictures of your cute make up and nails? I wanna see! I’m not a make up pro, at all, to be honest I rarely wear it! But I’m enjoying feeling super girly! This is my attempt at make up lol (I even bought a primer, which until recently, I thought that only applied to house paint LOL!)
My nails literally don’t last a day LOL Mopping, washing dishes and my pets, they don’t last XD Luckily he’s here once a month, so I have enough time to make them pretty! There’s a nice shade of blue! They are all chipped right now, but this is what they look like when I remember they exist lol
What about your pictures? 😀

I made sure I did my nails and take the time to look good whenever we went out…. but my fi did it while we ere hiking with our dog! And it was like 10 degrees out, so i looked like the abominable(sp?) snow man, i had gloves, a bulky jacket, and my hair was a mess with my hat. But It was wonderful and perfect for us, so all my hard work didn’t matter. I know of people that got proposed to in bed…. so ultimately I don’t think a perfect outfit is going to make a difference, but I do know that it’s still fun pampering yourself and fussing over what you are going to look like!

I didn’t look good at all when DH proposed! I was in my work clothes (not bad but not sexy!), no makeup, and my hair was kind of a bird’s nest! I was so unprepared. It was definitely part of the fun! I would’ve gotten gorgeous for sure if I’d known it would be that day. But we’re a pretty low-key couple. It was a very romantic, but low-key proposal on an evening walk in the park.

Lol at the primer comment! I thought it had something to do with a printer…so equally as clueless haha.
Congrats on your upcoming engagement 🙂

Our jeweler rents out a camera ring box for free with the engagement ring so I’m just hoping my face clears up a bit! Right now I look like a teenager and it is NOT cute. I totally get where you’re coming from!
