A lot of our friends would often ask why my BF and I are not married yet. He's 36, I'm 25-a lot have also agreed that we're in the ripe age for marriage, but they couldn't help but wonder why we're not planning our wedding yet. Our answer? It's simple: We're not yet ready, financially. We have money to spend on a wedding, but we don't have savings yet to start a family. I don't want to blow all our money and spend like royalties on the big day, but be broke and start from scratch the next day. I know a lot of couples who only saved up for their weddings and ended up sacrificing time with each other and delaying having a family for the next few months or years just to replenish their bank accounts. (What the!?) I'm not saying this is wrong--To me, it's just impractical. The point of marrying is that you and your partner are both ready (mentally, physically, emotionally, and most especially, FINANCIALLY) to be together and start a family.
When I marry, I want to be more ready than ever and that means I could push my other important priorities down the list and make way for my husband and our kids. I'm happy to know that my BF is also on the same page as me.
I just remembered this life question when I used this Luxe Eye Palette from Bobbi Brown today-it's from the Bobbi Brown Luxe Collection, which is intended to help brides create the perfect look for the big day. Just for fun, I whipped up a look that I think I want to sport on my very own wedding.

BOBBI BROWN LUXE EYE PALETTE IN DETAIL
This limited edition set comes with six eyeshadows, one universal eyeshadow brush, and one gel liner brush. I wish this palette came with another eyeshadow brush because it doesn't have a gel liner anyway-but if you want a travel- sized eyeliner brush and can't find any that fits the bill, then this is good news for you.
The formula, texture, and performance of the eyeshadows are uniform with the rest of Bobbi's eyeshadows, except that this palette contains a good combination of skin- flattering nudes. For a detailed review on the quality of the eyeshadows, please read this review.
Left side, top to bottom:
Pink Pearl (Metallic Eyeshadow)- An icy pink shade with a hint of lilac and slight silver shimmer
Pink Lilac (Sparkle Eyeshadow)- A pearlescent pink glitter eyeshadow that you can use to add sparkle on your lower lid, brow bone, or tear drop
Espresso (Eye Shadow)- A coffee brown soft matte eyeshadow that goes really well with the rest of the shades in this palette
Right side, top to bottom:
Cream (Eye Shadow)- a creamy white soft matte eyeshadow to highlight the brow bones and inner lid naturally.
Pink Opal (Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow)- A silver-pink eyeshadow for the lids and lower lash line
Oyster Gray (Metallic Eyeshadow)- a beige-silver highlighting eyeshadow that effectively deepens the creases whilst making it look natural
BOBBI BROWN LUXE EYE PALETTE IN ACTION
So here's my Bridal Look # 1:
Lids: Oyster Gray
Lower Lid: Pink Opal and Pink Pearl
Brow Bone: Cream
The beauty of this eyeshadow palette is, it's so mistake- proof that even with minimal blending skills, you can make it work. Whether you're getting married or not, this palette will come handy because it contains essential nudes that literally matches anything and everything. It's also a sweet and simple set, and you won't go guessing which color will look great with what.
At first, I thought it was pretty pricey for a set of highlighters, but I realized it's not everyday that you encounter a palette with eyeshadows that still look very good even if worn individually, and a set of beautiful nudes that don't look cheap or overly sparkly. I just wish it came with another crease color for variety, but nonetheless, I'm satisfied with it as it's easy to find good and affordable dark eyeshadow shades. Oh, and look at the stunning packaging-it's so darn pretty, ain't it?
