Hey ladies,

Back at work today, Engagement party was just a super stress box im glad its over. My famiy adn friends are so wonderful and set up my house in such a beautiful way that when i saw it after getting my hair and makeup done I cried.

Anyway quite a few things went wrong, like the pig i ordered for the spit, turned up at the butcher on the morning of my party and they had lost my order, so no food, managed to track down a whole lamb and two large pork legs.

Got my hair adn makeup done and my makeup was hideous and looked even worse in the photos (i couldnt even bring myself to say anything as I was so stressed out and shaking that all I wanted to do was get out of there), after seeing a couple of pics of myself i washed it off and did it again. Everyone kept saying that i look beautiful but i felt stupid and nothing like myself and although i havent looked at many of the photos im pretty sure i looked crap in all of them.

After a while though i got changed into some of my normal clothes took my hair out and redid my makeup and felt far more comfortable and far more like my actual self, which is when i also started enjoying the night as well. Wish that I had done that in the first place.

The party itself and the weekend were amazing, and everyone had a great time. I didnt actually get to bed until about 7:30am! As we all ended up at the beach around a massive bonfire with our mates playing the guitar and singing.

Everyone has gone home today though so im pretty sad and have "reverse Homesickness" plus i had to come back to work waaah.

So now im massively freaked out about getting my makeup done for the wedding, although im not going to be stupid enough to not say anything either.

Im getting married in the cook islands so no not using the same MUA.

I'm having a trial over there so I can make sure they dont ruin it and if they dont have a foundation that matches my skin I will just use my own.

Just saw the photos that our Best Man took for the engagement party and you would never believe that out of the 300 he took there are two of FH and I together and about a million of his girlfriend.

I dont mind though its an excuse for me to book in an e-shoot!

Aw I'm glad you eventually had a good time, Mel! I can't remember the last time I stayed up all night with friends! At my sisters hens party, I fell asleep at the bar in the middle of a club I was so tired and it was only 12 o clock :oops: :lol: I'm such a home body now.

I hope we get to see some pictures soon :wink: Definitely do an e-shoot!

That accommodation sounds perfect for what you are after. Looks really nice too :)

Mel glad to hear your engagement party went well. Not so good about the makeup though
