Weekend Recap, OOTD and Recent Purchases

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Easter is my favorite holiday an I love spending it with family and chowing down all day. Friday I had my hair and make-up trial and it went FABULOUSLY! Thank you everyone for your input! I posted a pic on my Twitter (@KristenLLP) if you want to check it out. We did a little bit of everything, natural face, glowy skin, and glam eyes with mega lashes and a bronze smoky eye. We also did my hair like Hilary Duff's which was the #1 choice for most comments. I'm so happy with the outcome, I can't wait to rock the look on my big day.

Saturday I made some cupcakes for the party while watching Sons of Anarchy. Do you watch this show? I'm obsessed. The main character Jackson is played by Charlie Hunnam and he is delicious. One of my favorite movies is Green Street Hooligans and he is such a hunk.

Elijah Wood is also in that movie, and I love him for it, which is why I put him in my HMP. Just an FYI for you ladies who were wondering about him this past HMP. I really want to be his friend IRL and go for drinks. Elijah, if you're out there, hit me up! And for Charlie, I have 12 days until the wedding, you can hit me up too!! ....but for a different reason than drinks. :D
 

Here's how my cupcakes turned out. Move over Martha Stewart!
 

Here's what I wore for Easter. This pic is taken with my cell phone at 11pm so that's why I don't look as fresh. My sister tried helping me, but when I look at the pics enlarged, they're all kind of blurry.
 
F21 Top (it's a soft pinky-coral)
JBrand Skinnies
F21 Feather Earrings
Now for my Recent Purchases:
 
Victoria Secret Shimmer in Gold
(my stylist used this to give me a "bridal glow" at my trial and I love it!)
Victoria Secret Bronzer
(It's a great color, very shimmery. I think it will go great used to highlight with a non-shimmer bronzer)
e.l.f. Complexion Brush
(I've used their brushes with the white handle and hate them, but I hear so many good things about these brushes (with the black handle). So far I really like it. The bristles are soft and full and they pick up a ton of product so I had to get used to that difference. So far so good though)
e.l.f. Blush in Candid Coral
(Some of you ladies raved about this color in comment on this blush post, they were out of other colors suggested, but I picked this up and...see below)
(so on trend- see this post about feather hair extensions and only $1.50. Love them!)

 
Candid Coral is almost an EXACT dupe for MAC Sunbasque. IRL they're similar in color, but as you can tell Sunbasque is more pigmented. I've worn Candid Coral today and yesterday and love it. It's the perfect peach-coral shade. Perfect for the coral trend this year! Thanks ladies for the recommendation!!

How was your weekend? What did you do to celebrate?
Do you have any of these products or would like a review of them?
