Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Duh, Pinning!

I am, like most people are obsessed with Pinterest.

I was pinning one day and I thought to myself how maybe I should actually try some of these pins. I am going to rate the pins WINNING for the ones you should try and LOOOOSER for the ones that you should pass on. Are you ready?


I am going to make it a blog series and try one Pinterest pin a week. This week was DIY pore strips:

This pin came from the blog Petit Elefant, this honestly is the one of the easiest DIY home beauty tip ever. I had heard some complaints that mask hurt when you were trying to take it off and I STILL wanted to try it for my self.

If you read the instructions the Petit Elefant, it is easy enough to put on . It kinda smells like grossness but that aside I soldiered on and applied the mas in a timely fashion  because it is no lie that this stuff hardens really fast.

Here are some glamor shots of me with the mask on:

This is after 20 minutes of having the mask on.

Showing how tight the mask makes your face.      

 I found that on the areas that had a thin application hurt like a mother to take off, but if it was on thick enough it didn't make me want to cry when I took it off.  On my T zone it worked wonders, I was sitting on the couch when I started pulling the strips off and I was ( and so was Husband) mesmerized buy the amount of crud coming out of my pores. I have huge pores to begin with and it pulled everything out of them.

Because I put some on that was really thin I had to take a shower to get it off.
After the shower.
See how shiny my skin is! My verdict on the DIY pore strip is that it works, but if you don't get it thick enough it will hurt getting it off, so I say use it for it is a pore strip and I think you will be just as happy with it.

3 reasons

Here are the three reasons we won't be having another party for at least 100 years.

1. Picking vomit covered peanuts off your wall at 2 a.m. is not awesome. My husband is a light weight, he drinks 2 beers and he is all like "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!". Lord knows how much he drank but I am assuming a crap ton, judging by the amount of liquid he expelled. Let me set the scene for you, we all needed to go to bed he had already thrown up so I thought the worst was over. Then I noticed he was breathing really heavily in his sleep and then all of a sudden he shoots up and begins to projectile vomit.... on the wall, on the bed, on his clothes, on the carpet. He get up and trips over the stairs and runs... TO THE FREAKING WINDOW!!!! Yes, dear readers, he tried to throw up out of the window, which has a screen and was shut mind you. So lets add all over the curtains to the list. I started yelling, WHAT ARE YOU DOING, GET TO THE BATHROOM! GET TO THE BATHROOM!!!! I had to throw my hand threw the waterfall of vomit to get to the door knob my husband couldn't work. Needless to say I had to wipe down my bedroom, strip the bed, take down the curtains and do a load of laundry.... at 2 am. I made him sleep in the bathroom.

2. Finding disgusting leftovers from our guests. Yes. I found someones spit cup (full), and a wad of chew on my kitchen counter. The chew was just hanging out, under a napkin, it wasn't wrapped in the napkin, it was on my counter surface. I GAGGED!!!!

3. I shaved my legs and didn't get laid.

There you go.
