Wedding's and Babies!
Lately it just feels as though all my friends are getting married or having kids! And I am just sitting here trying to accomplish all my hopes and dreams before I can get married or even have kids. I think the number one thing that many people tend to forget is that weddings and children are expensive! Lets talk facts the average wedding in Houston, TX is between $13,516 and $22,526. While the average couple spends less than $10,000 on a wedding. I have heard weddings costing up to $50,000! Can you imagine spending an auto loan on a wedding! Well I for one cannot...you love someone with all of your heart and you want to spend the rest of your life with them. In 2015, modern day America, you can only show that with a wedding costing a pretty little penny. I know I see myself falling in the no more than $15,000. Then again Love is a tricky thing...we sometimes trip and stumble into it before we even realize what in the world we are doing.
Now lets talk about the children! The future of our world...the brilliant minds that will shape the future or will they? First, lets discuss the cost of raising a child in America. The cost in 2013 until the age of 18 is $245,340 and with inflation the cost will be $304,480. This my beautiful people are just the facts we aren't talking about the Love, Devotion, Manners, Morals, Ethics, and Values that we raise our children to uphold. Then again what do I know I am just a Single 23 Year Old Woman so I might not be thinking down the same thought paths as others in my generation. They grow to achieve new hopes and dreams and we hope that they reach all those dreams.
So lets get down to what inspired my rambling at the beginning of this post. One of my good friends got married, which got me to thinking about the future but we shall save those thoughts for a later post.
For the makeup that I sported in this look would be:
- Stay Matte Primer by Rimmel London (I don't know about you but I have weird dry and oily skin but this helps to keep the shin from ever coming). $6.99
- Maybelline 'Fit me!' Foundation in the shades 330 Toffee Caramel and 355 Coconut Noxi De Coco both products Matte + Poreless (I have a weird skin complexion when it comes to makeup either this ones to light or this ones to dark ugh my life). $7.99
- The eye makeup was the Natural Eye Palette from Forever21 $7.90
- And the NUDE 'tude Palette from the Balm Cosmetics. The earrings are a piece of jewelry that I bought from a fashion show. $36
I hope that you all enjoyed and that you remember to live your life the best way that you can and not for others.
