This weekend flew by like a blur (as always) and so many significant things have occurred, one of them being me attending my very first Hens' Night! Or Bachelorette party as some may call it.
Before I talk about the night, I thought I would briefly share some pictures of the look I had on.
If you remember my woe on twitter and seen me around events in my frames, thankfully my contacts were ready just the day before so I didn't have to wear glasses to a Hens Night! It probably wouldn't matter but I wanted to go all out with lashes and the works, which I realize I haven't done in forever!
I had amassed a couple of Stila stuff, some received and some purchased, last week and will feature them shortly but I just couldn't wait to try them out.
In this look I used shades from Stila's In The Garden Palette, their spring 2012 offering. I wanted to mix up something fun and colorful but in the end, I went for a safe smokey moss-green look. I figured I didn't have the time to experiment and given my lack of color-use lately, it could be bad.
The highlight (literally) of this look would actually be the Stila Jewel Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz that I had dabbed, very moderately, in the centre of my lids for some added bling. Though sadly, since everything is shimmery in camera flash, the effect isn't as obvious in these pictures.
Perhaps next time! But it was beautifully (and subtlely) bling in person!
Will go into details about In The Garden's shades soon but for those familiar to it, it's
- Breeze in the inner corner
- Sage in the middle
- Juniper on the outer corner. Love love love Juniper!

I was not obliged to use/feature them in LOTDs.
I was in so much of a rush that I didn't put my lipstick on till I was on the way to the Hens Night, thus the bare lips in the above. Though I'm just listing the lipstick I had used, just cause!
I didn't have any proper outfit shots but over the course of the night there were some shots taken (by others) somewhat showing it. So here it is!

With part of the gang, waiting for the rest and bride-to-be to arrive before heading in.
And a polaroid with the gorgeous bride-to-be, Clara, later in the night
From the front it looks like a comfy attire but thanks to Smith's not very surreptitious shot (yes I knew you took a photo, I saw the flash!), here's the back.. which is also the reason I bought this otherwise normal looking top.
But enough about me, here's more of the bride-to-be on a night I hope she remembers for a good long time to come!
Board reads: I'm Single (for tonight)
Here's the board by the end of the night, filled with polaroids taken from her missions and with us!
Picture from Jacelyn
All in all it was a night of crazy fun for us and I hope for the bride too, amidst her demanding missions. Now I know what to expect if I were to hold a hens night in future. I think I may have to rethink people I want to invite.... ha!
Thanks for reading, hope the weekend went great for you!
