Our Entryway Update For Fall


A few weeks ago I picked up some new fall accents for our living room.  I know I won't really have time to decorate for Halloween (see my decor last year here) or Autumn with the wedding and I wanted to make a few quick changes. Homegoods has so much great fall inventory right now it was hard to contain myself - but I've been searching for taper candles in this color and a bust! With pretty fall florals it feels like a new space and matches the changing seasons.

Slowing Down & Speeding Up - A Wedding Update


Today marks 2 weeks from our wedding date. I can't believe it. The past week I've really felt the stress and pressure of our big day for the first time. I haven't been able to sleep. I feel like I'm planning in my dreams and wake up throughout the night and I haven't been cooking (or eating much, let alone healthy) and feel like I can barely catch up. I was hoping these last few weeks would be a bit more calm and more organized -- but I knew my indecisiveness would catch up to me! The past 2 days I've spent really organizing what needs to be done and started packing and I feel like I'm in a better place.

Food Should Taste Good Giveaway


Chips are one of my guilty pleasures. I've been trying to avoid them the last few months in preparation for our upcoming wedding -- but was so excited to try Food Should Taste Good 's guilt free options. All of their chips are made with real natural ingredients and have no transfats. They also come in a variety of fun flavors like Sweet Potato, Olive and Guacamole. We have been enjoying dinners alfresco before fall officially arrives and they were the perfect accompaniment with our grilled fish tacos + guacamole last week! Today I have a fun giveaway from Food Should Taste Good - read on for details!

Bridesmaid Dresses With Vow To Be Chic


Today I have double wedding posts to share!! Yesterday on Style Me Pretty I shared a little glimpse at my experience bridesmaid dress shopping with my girls. Instead of going the traditional route I had everyone over for cocktails, snacks and dress talk. We worked with Vow To Be Chic to pick out dresses for the girls to rent! What a brilliant idea -- designer gowns at a fraction of the cost that you wear once and return. Above is a tiny peek of the gown we decided on - I can't wait to see everything come together! Our experience with Vow To Be Chic was nothing short of amazing and everyone is so pleased with how their dresses fit and looked in real life. Head over to SMP to see my tips for making dress shopping a more pleasant experience for your ladies and if you're in the market for bridesmaid dresses I highly suggest checking out Vow To Be Chic!
