Hi, PPM - I just love your blog, and your style :) I was wondering if you still use the lash enhancer (I think it was RevitaLash, or maybe it was Latisse). If so, is it still working? Also, what is your favorite perfume? And lastly, have you ever mystic tanned? I really want to start tanning, but don't want my skin to age, so I'm thinking of going the alternative route.

I also have a question about Revitalash. Is yours the new improved version or the now discontinued version? Did it make your eyes change color? I also hear that if you stop using it your lashes will go back to normal. Really curious about buying it so wanted to know how you feel about it now that you've used it this long. Also what is the one moisturizer that you use every day? Thanks !
I have been using the same tube of revitalash since LAST May ... that's how long one tube will last you. This is proof that it's worth the investment. I don't see as many results anymore, but I feel like once your lashes reach their maximum length, they're not going to grow anymore. I've had a great experience with revitalash. It has never made my eyes change colors, nor my lids. I got ALL of the girls I work with using it as well and I have been able to see amazing results with their eyelashes. I have heard from several people that latisse does not work as well as revitalash. One of my friends got a tube of revitalash off of Ebay for half the price and she said it worked just as well, so if you're worried about the price you may want to check ebay for a seller that has 100% feedback to purchase a tube from.
Also, to answer SHW's question about mystic tanning- I got my first mystic tan when I was a senior in High School and have been sunless tanning ever since. I did the mystic tan for a couple years and in college I discovered the luxury of someone actually spraying you with an airbrush gun (looks a lot better than mystic). I went on a kick where I had a sunless tanning package and would get a spray tan every week, but in the past year I really haven't been big on getting it done once a week. Now I will just wait until I have a special event (wedding, party, etc.) and get one before the event. Normally, I just use sunless tanning lotion or foam every other day. I am really big about not using it every single day because your skin will start to look uneven, so I alternate using regular lotion and sunless tanning lotion.

How did you and Rob meet, and how did you know he was THE ONE? :)
Rob and I met during orientation in Law School. Law school is divided into sections and Rob was in my roommates section. We all went out one night and I drove Rob and my roommate. I knew he was something special when he could sing along to my cheesy 80's pop CD that I was playing in my car. When we arrived at the bar, I noticed that Rob had a smart phone and we started talking about smart phones and how cool they were. Then Rob talked about all of the places he had traveled and how he loved international travel. We seriously didn't stop talking the WHOLE time we were there. I was just amazed that I was talking to someone who had so many things in common with myself. Then I noticed that Rob was madly texting someone and looked a little frusterated. Oh, he was texting his girlfriend of THREE years, which was fine, because I currently had a boyfriend of SEVEN years! We then talked about long distance relationships and how hard it was because the other person always gets upset when you're out with other friends. That night, Rob added me on facebook and we were instant AIM friends.
Rob and I were really good friends for the next week, making jokes in the library and cracking up at each other. Next thing I know, Rob just up and dumps his long term girlfriend the very next week! I was beyond shocked, and everyone was telling me that it was because he had a huge crush on me and that he knew his ex-girlfriend was not "the one" anymore. I was touched and secretly had a huge crush on him, but honestly, we remained really good friends for the next couple of months because I knew that I still had a boyfriend and I wasn't going to lead a double life. In the mean time, my own long-distance relationship with my ex-boyfriend was not working out, and I knew that I'd be happier if I were able to enjoy my time in Florida without worrying about someone hundreds of miles away getting mad at me for having new friends. When I broke up with my BF, Rob professed his love for me and we were immediately dating! I know that moving on that fast is not recommended, but seriously, when I first met Rob the night we talked about our similarities, I knew he was the one. I had a thought in my head that he was something special and out of the ordinary and I will admit that I was a little upset when I found out that he had a long term girlfriend (even though I did too!) the first night I met him! It was the first time in my life that I felt like I was with the person that truly cared about me and my interests and we had SO much in common, it was scary.
It's funny how things work out with meeting your soul-mate ... there were so many circumstances that could have happened for both Rob and I that would have prevented us from meeting. About a month before I moved to Florida for law school I was dead-set on not going. I thought that I would just stay in Lexington for a year and work, while deciding if I really wanted to go to law school. Seriously, a wild hair took over and I hastily signed my lease for Florida on a whim. In Rob's case, he really wanted to go to another law school in Florida and he actually got accepted, but his acceptance letter got LOST in the mail and he got it after accepting with the law school we both attended. Just think, if he would have gotten that first acceptance letter we probably would have never met, but it got randomly lost in the mail. It's really funny how things happen, and I am thankful every day that I found Rob!

I see that you have three wonderful puppies; how did you come to be their mommy?
When Rob went to the University of Alabama, he had a brussels griffon named Tara:
When Rob knew he was going to attend law school, he had to get rid of Tara because he knew that having a dog in law school would be impossible.
Once Rob and I dropped out of law school, he was deeply saddened because he missed his old dog, Tara. His parents had a brussels named Max, so we definitely knew that we wanted a brussels griffon because of their small size and spunky personality.
We looked into breeders near Memphis, and found one in Little Rock, Arkansas who had just birthed a litter of brussels' puppies. The lady told me that the litter was all boys except for one "little scrappy" girl puppy that would constantly beat up and fight with her brothers. She then sent me this picture, and I was sold:
After having Miss P for a few months, we discovered the National Brussels Griffon Rescue Association. Rob and I both have huge hearts for animals, and we wanted Miss P to have a playmate, so we found Apple on the rescue website. Apple had been abused by her previous owner, who operated a puppy mill. We got sweet Apple and became actively involved in the rescue association.
We actually were fostering Georgina when we decided to keep her. Georgina had been abandoned on the side of an Arkansas highway and had a horrible skin condition due to lack of care. Georgina was taken in by the rescue association and we fostered her and fell in love with her goofy personality.

What are your staple nail polish shades? Have a fabulous day!
Blogger Olivia C. said...
What is your favorite nail polish brand and why?(I'm addicted to all things "nail-related" haha)
I tend to always get Essie neutral polishes in the spring and summer. I currently have on Essie guchi muchi puchi. I also love Essie Ballet Slippers and Mademoiselle. Occasionally I will get a color ... last time I got OPI on Collins Avenue and really liked it!
Blogger Kate said...
My question is a little random, how tall are you? I ask because I really loved the pink dress you wore to Keeneland. However at 5' 7" I think it might be a bit short on me, hence my reason for asking.
I am 5'4" ... The ADAM dress that I wore was a little short, and I could imagine it being short on someone who is 5'7" ... it was absolutely adorable though, and I would get it anyways, despite your height :)
Blogger Kristen said...
I am absolutely in love with the Vera Wang dresses your bridesmaids wore in your wedding! Absolutely gorgeous. Why can't I find them on the website? I just got engaged and would love to find them for my girls, but I don't see them on the site. Your taste is impeccable! Thanks!
I just went to the Vera Wang On Weddings website, and it looks as if she has phased out my bridesmaids dresses. I am pretty sure you can still order them, though. I would highly recommend Pearl's Place in New Orleans. Call them and they will be able to order it for you ....
Also, BIG NEWS! My bridesmaid's have all agreed to selling their Vera Wang Maids dresses. So, if you are planning an upcoming wedding and you liked my bridesmaid's dresses, PLEASE contact me. I have 5 girls that want to sell their dresses for a reasonable price.

Where do you get your doggy clothes?
Mostly, I get mine from a small dog boutique here in Memphis, as well as Petco. Sometimes I am able to find cute dog clothes at Target.

How do you afford to buy such pretties all the time??? Tell us your secret=)
Well, I work as well as sell a lot of things on Ebay. Also, I have great parents who still help me out and since I'm an only child, I am the only kid they have to worry about :)

Hi Megan! Noticed in your honeymoon pictures you have a six pack... what kind of workouts do you usually do? Do you watch your diet?
I love to work out. I take my dogs on two walks a day. I do a spinning/body pump combo Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On Tuesday and Thursday I will either do spinning alone or just walk my dogs.
I pretty much eat whatever I want. I have NEVER been one to love fattening foods. I typically skip breakfast, have Starbucks on my way to work, eat a small lunch or snack for lunch (i.e. wheat thins, granola bar, etc.). I always eat a big dinner ... Rob and I love pasta, turkey burgers, turkey tacos, etc. I do, however, totally indulge on sweets. I make cookies, brownies, cakes, etc. ALL the time and munch on these throughout the day.

How long have you and Rob been together?!?!? Do you like living in Memphis--what are your favorite things to do around town?
Rob and I have been together since October of 2007. Rob is from Memphis, so that is how we ended up here. We both really like it. Honestly, we are both big homebodies. We like to go out to eat with friends, but normally you will find us at home with our puppies.

What was your favorite moment of your wedding?
I think my favorite moment from my wedding was at our reception when I realized that everything worked out fine and that all of my friends and family were all together and everyone was having a great time. It is such a feeling of relief to know that everything you had planned worked out and that everyone is just having a good time. I will say that the first day of the honeymoon was great as well. We were both laying out and it was such a great feeling to know that while the wedding was amazing, it was all over with and we could resume our normal life!

*what kind of car do you drive?*what do you typically order at starbucks?*what are your future plans? (children etc)
I drive a BMW.
I order a grande non-fat vanilla latte EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. sometimes I will add a piece of reduced-fat blueberry coffee cake (aka crack) ... it is so so so good!
Rob and I are so content with our life right now. We enjoy spending time with our dogs and living our happy little life. We both agree that we may want ONE child in our future, but not anytime soon. I am thinking I will be at least 29 or 30. We are both big travelers and we want to go on trips and save money before we even think about having a tot. No thanks.

What is your favorite brand of shoes and purses and why. I know you love them all, but what are the HANDS DOWN best in your opinion for style, comfort, function and fashion all rolled into one???
Blogger Jessica said...
you've talked about wearing skinny jeans with tory burch reva flats - you finally convinced me to fork over the money for a black patten leather pair - and they kill my feet! do you have a secret - lots of bandaids or something? or do i just have wimpy feet?
I would say that my favorite brand of shoes are Tory Burch and Manolo Blahnik. While I have my fair share of Louboutins, they are honestly pretty uncomfortable. I have my special occasion Louboutins, and that's about the only time I wear them. I wear Tory Burch shoes every single day. Whether it's her reva ballet flat or thora flip-flop, I am always in some TB shoes and with my job, it's a lot to say that shoes are comfortable! I am on my feet all day and I have never had any complaints with TB.
Jessica- It's totally normal to hate your TB flats the first week that you wear them. The elastic band in the back will bug the heck out of you for the first week, but you seriously just have to break them in for the elastic to stretch out. All of the girls and I at work will sometimes put a band-aid on the back of our heel the first week we wear a new pair of revas. I promise they will stretch out and you will love them :)
Blogger Lis said...
I would love to know your can't go through the day with out list - such as certain water/tea/soda, lipgloss, hair product, etc. :)
I am addicted to coffee and Diet Cokes, as well as Diet Dr. Pepper. I hate water and only drink it during spinning class.
I really don't wear a lot of make-up. After I put on my moisturizer I apply concealer and mineral powder, then blush, eyeshadow, and mascara. I have to have mascara though, or I look scary. I only use Diorshow Iconic.
I am really bad about buying 15 million tubes of lipgloss and throwing them all in one purse. I randomly pick out one each day to wear. Sometimes I don't even put on lipgloss and I will just wear chapstick.
I ALWAYS have to have my hairbrush at all times.
My signature scents are Chanel Chance, Chanel Mademoiselle, and Versace Bright Crystal, although I will use others as well:

Hey PIPM, just curious to know, now that you decided law school is not for you what career direction are you heading in?
Honestly, I have no idea. I am considering going back to school to get my master's degree. The job market sucks right now and I don't want to take a job and be miserable, hence why I am still working at the boutique.
Blogger Jenna said...
where is your skirt with the horses on it from? What website does Rob use to get all of the movies and shows???
I am assuming that you are referring to the skirt I was wearing in a picture I posted from a previous year at Keeneland ... if so, that skirt was from J. Crew in the fall of 2006. I still have it if you're interested in buying it from me ;)
I have no idea where Rob dl's from ... he is so technologically advanced that half of the stuff he does is beyond my comprehension.

Are you watching Southern Belles Louisville? If so who is your favorite so far (I know its just a few episodes in...) Its my new guilty pleasure for sure!
Yes! I am watching SB's Louisville. I really don't have a favorite. I actually went to college with a couple of the girls on the show. I do watch the show, however, I think it's a little fake.
Blogger Rosa said...
Now, be honest, how many pairs of shoes do you have? Do you have any favorites?
I don't keep count! This is a picture from my closet in Florida. I have now started to store the shoes I really don't wear and I only keep out the ones that I wear on a regular basis. I would say that all in all, I have well over 100 pairs of shoes, but I rotate between wearing maybe 5 pair that I really love.
My favorites are all of my TB flats and my Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes!

You seem to be fairly health conscious so what is the one food item that you just can't get enough of and if calories didn't count you wouldn't stop yourself from eating.....And, how are you doing getting your house set up? Having any problems combining your style with Rob's??
I can't get enough of chocolate. Seriously. I keep a bag of chocolate chips on hand at all times and I will munch on them throughout the day.
We had no problems combining our styles :) Rob pretty much let me do whatever I wanted with the decorating, so it all worked out great!

what did your invitations look like? i am having the hardest time finding invitations i love for my wedding.
I used Crane & Co's Embassy White Pearlized Triple Panelled Invitation Set (pictured above). I decided to go with timeless classy invitations and I am so glad that I did ... I loved my invitations! They were quite pricey, but well worth it in the end!
Blogger Elizabeth said...
what is your favorite brand of jeans? do you still like your couch? would you order from them again?
I am a big fan of J Brand jeans. I love how the pockets have no embellishments or labels, which makes it easy to pair them with any kind of top. I probably have 10 pairs of J Brand 910's and 912's. They are hands down my favorite kind of jean.
I really love my couch from clubfurniture.com, but I wouldn't recommend ordering the "basketweave" material. Our couch gets dirty so easily and with three dogs this tends to be a never-ending problem!
Blogger Natalie said...
What is your skincare regimen and how do you stay so toned?
Here are the products I use: La Mer facewash, Clean & Clear blackhead clearing scrub, Clarisonic Brush, La Mer eye treatment, La Mer creme, and revitalash.
I will wash my face with either the La Mer wash or the Clean & Clear ... I typically alternate between the two because the Clean & Clear is a little more abrasive.
Next, I apply the La Mer eye treatment creme around my eyes. Next, I apply the La Mer creme all over my face and neck. Lastly, I apply the revitalash to my lashes.
I would say that Body Pump has made me so toned. That class is amazing!

This might be more of a suggestion than a question, but have you ever thought of doing more fashion 'advice' on your blog? Like how to wear certain trends, like how to accessorize things or what to wear different things with? You have such great taste :)
Funny you should say this because I have exciting news! I am launching a whole new website that will be prettyinpinkmegan.com!!!! I currently have a graphic designer redesigning my whole blog which will offer a fashion advice, ask megan a fasion question, and several other features :) I would love any recommendations you all might have for my new website! It will still be like my blog, only a little more user-friendly.
