The big day <3

This weekend was my best friend and cousins wedding. It was one of the most emotional, exciting, and beautiful weddings that I got to be a part of.

My lovely cousin, friend and client of the day and I 🙂 you can’t tell but we’ve been tearing up all day prior to this. 🙂

This past weekend I had the privilege to work with some beautiful ladies for a bridal party here in Seattle.

The longer I work as a makeup artist, the more I realize how much I love it and I am hoping that one day it can become a full time business for me 🙂

I get to play with makeup all day and hang out with super pretty girls who make my job easy because they are stunning already! Sigh… oh the life of a makeup artist 🙂

Here are some shots of before and afters:

I might be a little biased since I am Ukrainian, but Ukrainian girls are so beautiful! But of course every ethnicity has its own unique beauty 🙂

If you are in the Seattle area and are looking for a makeup artist, feel free to contact me through my business email- vika_manchik@yahoo.com.

Well I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday- it’s almost Friday and that means the weekend!!

Love and kisses,

Miss M

Outfits of the weekend :)

Hello Lovelies!

Today is Monday. ughhh. Mondays Mondays how I dislike you. I think the reason that people dislike Mondays so much is that after a weekend of sleeping in and staying up late, it all catches up to you on Monday.

I find that waking up early and taking a run actually helps me wake up and have a happier approach to this day.

Anyways, this weekend was beautiful. The weather was amazing- in the 80’s and 90’s! Ahhhh finally us Seattle people are actually experiencing this thing called the sun! Whooop whoop! I am excited because later on today I will be playing tennis with some gals of mine.

I just wanted to post my outfits I wore this weekend. If you follow me on instagram you might have already seen them, but if not, here they are!:)

Here is one outfit 🙂

Here is the outfit I wore to my youth pastors wedding 🙂

Well off to work I go,

Love and kisses,

My big fat UKRAINIAN wedding :)

Hello there lovely, amazing, BEAUTIFUL people!

These past 2 weekends, I have been at weddings because our band has been performing and this upcoming weekend, I will be at another one!

Tis the season to get married:)

I don’t know if all of you know this, but I am Ukrainian. I was born there and came here when I was a little girl.

So anyway, one thing about Ukrainian weddings, is they go all out.

If you have ever seen the show, “My Big Fay Gypsy Wedding”, well that’s kinda how it is with Ukrainians. Except none of the over the top spray tanning :p

I don’t know what it is, but every bride is always trying to top the last, and you can imagine, each wedding gets more extravagent and detailed than the last.

Here are some pictures I snapped while at the weddings.

Oh, and by the way, If you need the number to a good decorator, Let me know. She does all these weddings and she is amazing!

Or…if you need the number to an amazing band, let me know. I am one of the lead singers 🙂

Beautiful Table setting for bride and groom

 

Elegant and classy cake.

 

One of the table settings.

 

Another table setting

 

Pretty flowers.

 

More flowers. Peonies are my favorite!

 

A table with their wedding photo, and both of their parents wedding photos. Such a creative idea!

 

One of the tables.

 

And now moving on to the food…. Ukrainian women are known o be some of the best cooks and bakers out there. Seriously, if you think you have lived after eating a hamburger or cheesecake, think again. Some of the cakes have like 6-10 different layers! If you ever come across a russian or ukrainian restaurant or bakery, you will not regret going in and trying the food:)

 

Chocolate covered strawberries. So precious!

 

One of the dessert platters. Yumm:)

 

More of the dessert table!

 

And more… drooling yet??

 

Cake pops!

 

Cupcake tower.

 

And more sweets.

 

I cant wait for this weekends wedding, it is our youth pastors wedding, so basically its like the wedding of the year.

I will definitely post pictures, if you guys want to see 🙂

Love and kisses,

Miss M
