Trend Tuesday: Blush Pink

TT - Blush

There is so much pretty going on here I almost can’t stand it.

Blush Pink is a very common color selection in weddings, and for good reason. It is beautiful, romantic, feminine, but not too pink. It pairs beautifully with gold, silver, white and gray.

I personally had a blush pink themed wedding. #3 on the collage is my actual wedding bouquet! I love, love, loved my bouquet! Not only is it beautiful, it will last forever because it is made from silk petals. It is on display in my living room for me to admire until eternity.

I hope you enjoy this curation of wonderful blush items. I know it makes me want to get married all over again!

Real Wedding Feature: Danelle & Jason!

My friend, Danelle, and her husband, Jason, celebrated their one year anniversary last week. I had full intentions of publishing this post on their actual anniversary, but low and behold – life got the best of me. BUT life happens, and I’m not going to let that stop me from sharing their wonderful day with y’all!

I’ve been wanting to feature a real wedding on my blog for a while now. There’s something just so cool at looking at pictures from someone’s special day. It’s inspiring, it’s nostalgic, it’s sentimental.

I remember their wedding like it was yesterday. It’s absolutely crazy how fast the time flies. I had the honor of doing makeup for the bridal party and the bride, which was pretty much the coolest thing ever. The fact that Danelle had that much trust in me was extremely flattering. I’m going to go ahead and give myself a pat on the back since she looked simply breathtaking!

The following is a collection of photos from their special day. You will see from the photos what a wonderful, happy couple they are. It’s very obvious that they were made for one another! And oh my goodness, let me tell you about their first dance. People…. it was hot! I mean, talk about sexy. Do you know what Bachata is? Where 2 people basically do the sexiest, sensual dance moves together but it’s completely coordinated, tasteful, and jaw-dropping? That’s what their first dance was. No eighth-grade slow dance moves (like my own first dance). This shit was for real. I wish I had a video to show you, because the pictures just don’t do it justice. Just take my word for it and let the sexiness seep into your imagination.

Happy Anniversary, Danelle & Jason!

9 Creative Uses for Mason Jars

Trend Tuesday_ Mason JarsHey guys! It’s Trend Tuesday and today we are featuring my FAVORITE thing ever: The Mason Jar!

I don’t know when mason jars got so big, but it seems like nowadays they are everywhere you look: at the grocery store, craft stores (Joann’s & Michael’s), on wedding blogs, Pinterest, and all over people’s homes.

I personally love using mason jars for storing bulk food such as chia seeds, granola, and spices. I also use them in my office for holding pens, tiny spools of twine, and flowers.

Here are 9 fun uses for mason jars to try out!
