Why, Hello There!

Hello to all of you fabulous folks out there! It feels amazing to be back! Again, a big thank-you goes out to everyone for supporting me as I shared my wedding journey throughout this past year. It was quite the ride! Blogging the experience only felt natural and each post now acts like a memory that I’ll cherish forever. Ok, now, let’s rewind…

Wow. I’m completely blown away. I’ve been dreaming of this day since I was a little girl. When I was sixteen years old, I came up with a wedding profile that outlined each of my wedding expectations: from the rings to the dress (Vera Wang, no less!) and down to the music list (I’m sure there would have been more…

Wedding Accessories

I’ve been dreaming of my wedding since I was a little girl – and here we are, only a few days away (it’s so close that I can nearly count the hours). Perfection during a wedding (or anything in life, for that matter) is nearly an impossibility. During our year-long wedding prep, Joe and I have gone through many ups…

Wedding Words: Bride-to-Be

I can’t believe how fast this year has passed. It only seems like yesterday, Joe popped the big question and changed our lives forever. If you’ve been following my story, you’d know that I’ve been spending all year preparing for mine and Joe’s upcoming wedding. The ride has been great and as we get closer to the big day, we’ve been paying more…

Chocolate Mousse: A Delectable Treat

Whenever I have new recipes I want to try out, I hunt the internet and flip through pages of recipe books to compare ingredients and preparation. One thing’s for sure: Martha Stewart’s recipes never let me down. Her steps are easy to follow and her website is full of beautiful photography (it’s a lifestyle blogger’s dreamland, honestly). This week, Joe requested some…

Kiehl’s Haul

  Recently, a friend of mine presented me with a generous gift of Kiehl’s products. I was, of course, ecstatic because I’m totally in love with their line, but also because the gift was so uncalled for and took me by complete surprise. I’m surrounded by the most loving people! Take a look at what I received: Soy Milk & Honey…

Vines and a Green Skirt

For the second installment of my BRENTON BARROW PHOTOGRAPHY collaboration, I decided to sport some GAP gear from (nearly) head-to-toe. As sad as it may be, we’ve reached the time in the summer season where “transitional clothing” is a must. My new, black t-shirt (similar here) was perfect for a cool afternoon and my green-patterned skirt was ideal to wear high-waisted in order to emphasize a…

Joe’s Birthday Treat

Last week, we celebrated Joe’s birthday and prior to his special day, I was racking my brain trying to figure out what to do for him. I’ve always baked him a homemade cake but this year, I wanted something to “wow” him. Joe spent a good portion of his studies in France, so that’s when it dawned on me to…

Teal Nails

This week, I sported Essie’s Naughty Nautical to add a cool touch to my coral outfit. I was actually shopping for a navy blue polish before coming across this one, and I’m pretty happy with the results. It’s young, fun, and the color comes out quite strong. (P.S. found my ideal navy lacquer and will likely be picking up Butter London‘s Royal Navy)

Style Board: BBQ Parties

Let’s face it: summer’s almost over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t squeeze in a few more BBQ dinner parties. I rounded up some of my favorite summer party looks. Enjoy the heat while it lasts! {one} I’m a real sucker for cream dresses and I love the way this one is dressed up with brown leather boots and a printed…
