We spend our time on the tube/train/bus thinking about nail polish colors and where we haven’t looked for the perfect shoe. We read wedding blogs obsessively and rip our hair out when we read that the featured brides “just happened upon the perfect shoe on sale in Selfridges, they were originally £1000 but I got them for £50” and know this is a once in a lifetime occurrence and we will not be that lucky. We lie awake at night wondering if it would be a good plan to get a spraytan NOW, just to see how it looks, and maybe this is the perfect time in our life when we will discover permanent fake lashes. And maybe we should have a facial every week until our wedding day, it’s only once, right? But how can we afford that, and who has the time really, to have a facial every week? Unfortunately the world still turns while we plan our weddings
In the middle of the night brides everywhere wake up, grab their phones and go on eBay to search for vintage glass jars that are basically ESSENTIAL to their big day going well and they think: "Can’t believe I just thought of that, at 4am". And Maybe we should order some tissue paper to make pom pom’s? And I definitely want fairy lights EVERYWHERE because they are so cute when it gets dark, maybe I should wake up the fiance to see what he thinks? No wonder brides are tired during the day, the night is spent online shopping. And when the little parcels arrive, we rush home from work to make sure we get to the post box first and can hid all our crazy 4am purchases, if our husbands to be sees the level of craziness we can raise too he might want to call the whole thing off, and what are we to do with the 200 vintage mason jars we are waiting for to ship from Australia?
It's tiring guys, and I need to calm down and stop worrying about nude nailpolish, life is too short.
