My Special Day

I looked and felt like cinderella...
I had hair extension in, so my hair was extra long. The top was teazed up into a bubble and the rest of my hair was in long curls hanging on my back. My make up was airbrushed so it hold the entire day, a soft glow that made the perfect photos.
My jewellery was all bling-bling cause i love shiny silver things, everything was silver with clear diamond rocks.
My shoes was one of my top choices... my shoes was covered in silver glitter, fairy dust for a princess.
and last but not leat, my underware was white lace with silver sequences on it.
