I hope you all had a safe and happy long weekend! Happy 4th of July to all my US friends as well! :)
It can sometimes take a long while for me to get photos back from weddings that I do, so when I get an email directly from a photographer with photos... I jump on the chance to share!!!
Thank you so much Denise from C'est Chic Photography (www.cestchicphoto.com)for sending me these gorgeous photos! :)
Teresa is absolutely stunning! She and her entire bridal party were a blast to work with.
Vicki (www.teeze.ca) and I arrived for hair and makeup @ 6am so we could keep these lovely ladies on schedule... and here is the result :)
And there's the happy couple :)
Again, big thank yous to Denise for providing me with these beautiful images and to Vicki for, once again, being an amazing stylist and my partner in crime lol
Have a fabulous day!!!
Hugs... Crystal :) xo

I just wanted to share a sneak peak of images from the Fabulous Feminine's(nbphotos.ca and crystalized artistry)collaboration with the amazing Bhupi of henna4you.com
As you can see... henna is not just for traditional ceremonies anymore! Consider how much fun henna would be before a girls night out OR a beautiful henna garter or "surprise" for under your wedding gown! ;)
Check out my Facebook page for more images!

I'm so excited to rave about the new Smashbox Beauty Snapshots Kit and the new Full Exposure mascara that I just picked up from Shoppers Drug Mart (I am crazed about my shoppers points! LOL)
Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Starburst - travel size
Photo Finish Targeted Pore and Line Primer - travel size
Lip Enhancing Gloss in Pink Sugar
The eye shadows are all satin finishes and blend beautifully! I LOVE the champagne colour and pewter grey is stunning! The brush that comes with the kit is a decent crease brush.
I have now become a big fan of the Limitless Eyeliner (it's super smooth going on and comes with a sharpener on the end :), I wouldn't normally choose this "golden ivy" colour but it"s quickly becoming one of my faves for a classic Bridal look.
Speaking of classic bridal, the "Pink Sugar" lipgloss is the perfect colour. It looks much brighter than it actually is and has a little hint of sparkle... very pretty!

Darn it's been awhile since I've posted a blog from Crystalized Artistry!
Well that's about to change lol... I've recently gotten a good ole butt kick from a friend wanting to know where my makeup artistry blogs are.
Many of you may already know (and for those who don't) I am in week 5 of a 12 week BeautyFit weight loss and transformation challenge @ World Gym Kitchener.
Not that there is any excuse for neglecting my Crystalized blog, but my mind and focus has definitely been elsewhere!
Now that I'm into the swing of things and have found some balance with it all (some balance, not complete lol) I am wanting to pick up the slack and move onward and upward!!! :)
Keep checking back for new posts on a regular basis AND if you're interested in following my progress during my 12 week BeautyFit challenge check out my other blog! :)
Till I blog again... SOON!
Hugs... Crystal xo

We believe in making effective products from fresh, organic* fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics.
We believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not commission tests on animals and in testing our products on humans.
We believe in happy people making happy soap, putting our faces on our products and making our mums proud.
We believe in long candlelit baths, sharing showers, massage, filling the world with perfume and in the right to make mistakes, lose everything and start again.
We believe our products are good value, that we should make a profit and that the customer is always right.
* We also believe words like fresh and organic have honest meaning beyond marketing.
The spicy, tingly muscle-soothing bar with aduki beans for a deeper rub.
The Wiccy Magic Muscles Bar is the one for sorting out aching muscles. The first time you use one of these, it feels very strange, as if a very small radiator has been turned on inside the part of your body you just massaged. Mark and Ro created this one together to soothe aches and pains.
Perfect for exercise.
Once you get used to it, you'll start to run just for the pleasure of your Wiccy massage when you get home. Aduki beans work your muscles and aches as the bar is massaged into the skin and they help to break out tension.
The closest LUSH shop to me is at Stone Road Mall in Guelph but check out the LUSH
website for more locations and more beautiful products!
Happy shopping and Hugs... Crystal xo
