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.

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.

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!
