Wedding Photoshoot Day!
OMG ITS WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT DAY, YALLZZZZ.
Im super excited. Can u tell. 🤣
And technically, it is photoshoot day but it's 12mn and the shoot is 12nn so I'm way ahead of myself.
My wedding dress will be the last item to be packed and shipped cause of the shoot!
The kitchen has become the only place in the house with space so all the boxes are stacked there. Awaiting movers to collect them! Both of us have 5 boxes, 4 luggages, 1 duffel, 3 guitar cases. JY has 8 boxes and 2 guitar cases LOL.
I'm actually quite proud of us and our packing skills cause I'm sure without the vacuum bags and whatnots, it would have been near impossible to fit our stuff into just 5 boxes.
Now to unpack them in SG.....🙃
Back at the florist this afternoon to collect my bouquet! I love this little florist and the ladies are so exceptionally nice.
My flowers have been sitting there past a week cause of the hospitalization and all but they just kept it for me and swapped out the older roses for newer ones FOC. Why so nice 😭😭😭 They totally didn't have to keep my flowers cause I was 4 days past collection!
Picked up another bunch of dried lavender to bring back to SG. It's too cheap here to pass up. It's only $12 lah so imma just stuff them into my luggage.
I wanna get dried eucalyptus back in SG too~
Had time to kill while the florist fixed the bouquet so I popped into CVS and lookie, Smashbox's copies! I couldn't decide which to pick so imma head back next week when the hubs sell off his old textbooks.
📍 Boston Burger Company
We shared the 420 burger that came with fried mozz sticks, bacon, and hash brown. Really #dayrefatties all the way here. Errand day means lunch outside again. I'm so sick of eating out. I'm so sick of burgers and pizza and basically cheese on bread. I want some chee kwey and charkweytiao and horfun.
Prep work I.
I have gross arm hair so bleaching them all away. SG used to carry this kit lor but I guess they stopped bringing them in. It's damn useful. I love using this for arm hair cause I don't wanna shave my arm lah??
Also, tape cause my dress is strapless and I'm not risking any thing here.
Prep work II.
Detox masks a few days before to make sure I don't break out on that day and a brightening mask last night so my skin is bright and clear today!
All the husband did was went for a haircut and bought some wax 😑😑😑 I have to prep like, days in advance. Can't imagine the actual wedding HAHA
Ok, imma be updating on Instastories (@/beautypeadia) on the go!
Let's do dis. Fingers crossed cause
1. Totally winging this
2. I haven't used makeup for the past 6 months LOL
I'm so chill, it's quite scary.
Very barefaced 😳 Check out those dark circles. They have been sneaking in the past two weeks cause of how busy we've been but nothing a lil color correcting and concealer won't fix!
I still gotszzzz it!
Ok quite pleased with everything seeing how I haven't actually touched makeup in sooooo long. Went for soft pinks and browns cause I can't imagine a shoot without these colors.
Didn't want stark matte lips so I went with a tint that's MLBB

I understand why ppl hire MUA cause I started prepping 2.5 hours beforehand and I was still scrambling at the last minute to fix my hair, wear my lipstick, adjust the dress, take the bouquet and omg it doesn't end.
I've lost too much weight cause the husband got into the hospital and now I've no more boobs 😑 Actually considering wearing two bras just to make this work wtf. I mean, it's always good to lose weight but I am looking freakishly skeletal lah wtf. Gross.
Check out mah pretty flowers 😍
Initially, I thought we'd have to surprise an uber driver with our outfits but we had friends who came with cars so yay!
Half our shots were me adjusting his bow tie lol
Guess who was wearing converse sneakers around 🙆🏻😳
I hiked up my dress and walked from one point to another and got stopped so many times by ladies telling me my shoe choice was awesome. LOL.
There was this mom who pointed it out to the daughter and went. 'Oh look at her cool sneakers!' HAHA WHY NO ONE LOOK AT MY DRESS!
I'm SUPER excited to get the professional shots now cause these random shots by Chris also turned out quite nice eh??? Basically wtv the photographer shot, he just stood at the side and snapped away.
We didn't enter a random alleyway ah HAHA We headed back to where we rented our very first apartment together! So much memories there for real.
Loving my loooooong train. The photog couldn't believe her ears when she heard the price of my dress lah. I posted about the process of my dress-buying here.
I need to bring the dress back to a seamstress to get it better-fitted. The creases are irking me sia.
Also, there were SO MANY STRANGERS just taking pictures of us. It was totally weird cause what are they gonna do with the pics??? Like just random Asian couple in wedding attire wtf???? 🤔🤔🤔 Husband said he felt like a celebrity HAHAHAHAHA I was just trying to carry my entire dress in my arms and not trip and fall flat.
The love of my life 😍 I am mighty short without heels but hey, I was very comfortable and happy throughout the whole shoot!
This is literally how I look at my husband every time 😍 My face is huge here lol but wtv
This bakery was where we got our 3AM-tiramisu fixes. The North End really held a lot of late-night adventures cause the hubs was still studying then and we would sleep at 5am and wake at 3pm and he would go for his 4pm classes 😂
Okay, last one alr. Soooo excited to get the actual shots 🤗🤗🤗
