Its the eyelashes that took the time

One of the teachers asked me how long it had taken Grumpy to get ready, much to dd’s dismay I said “2 hours for the eyelashes – 10  minutes for the rest”. Ok, it was a slight exaggeration BUT, I have threatened to emigrate if she wants to wear false eyelashes when she gets married – next time she’s on her own. I suppose nerves played their part but during the ‘application’ she was pure evil. The first eye had gone smoothly but the second was a nightmare. Gone was the calmness that had existed, gone was the spare 30 minutes I’d built in for a photo shoot (especially planned to tie-in with module 1 for CJ’s Advanced Artistry), all replaced with pure stress. Not helped by the limo turning up 15 minutes early it has to be said.

We did manage a few shots before she sped on her way and then more were taken at the main pick up point and again at the hotel after their tour of the town in the gorgeous cream baby Bentley. I won’t bore you forever with photos but for today here are my favourites.

My daughter spent a fortune on false eyelashes until she discovered 'permanent' fakes. A lady nearby puts individual fake lashes onto your own lashes and they stay on for about a month.
Have you say that 'grumpy' looks absolutely beautiful and that dress is such a gorgeous colour!

Grujmpy is stunning, the dress gorgeous, the eyelashes perfect and hopefully the evening was magnificent.

She's absolutely gorgeous! Hope she had a wonderful time. And now I'm wondering where it is you live that all the girls still wear princess-style ball gowns to prom!?! Around here, the full skirts are out and it's all the more flowy, stretchy fabric - some crazy prints, and wide open backs! My prom pics are coming soon.
