{blown away}

No cuts. No color. Just blowouts - wash included. And not just any blowout, an entire menu of 'em so that you can choose the just-right one for you (messy, beachy mai tai is my pick)! The entire concept of drybar has left me giddy, I mean, it's genius, right? It's also no surprise that the fine folks who started it have a bit of star-studded experience behind their belts. I can only cross my fingers, click my heels together a few times and hope that a drybar opens near me. They also rent it out for parties, which may just be reason enough to fly to LA for a girls weekend...

boothtime fun!

Lately, every event or party we attend has a photobooth, and that my friends, is a magical thing! These are from the beautiful wedding we were at last weekend (more on that to come!).

barn {wedding} weekend

Today we're heading out of town for a fun filled barn-wedding weekend {the camera is packed, it's sure to be chock full of sweet details to share!}. Remember those barn invites I did with the burlap pouches, well this is the very same wedding, can't wait! My only dilemma is the dress, I'll be wearing one of these, both are packed, just. can't. decide...thoughts?

UPDATE: I wore the one on the left! It was cute, but too much fabric, made me feel pregnant all over again.

DIY {goody bags}

It's no secret that I love a goody bag, I mean, who can resist a tiny bag holding a bit of whimsy on the way out of a party?? These simple DIY bags are a cinch and will be added to my "crafty-list of things to do" list. Fun for showers, birthdays, you name it!!

c'mon {get happy}

Hello! Sorry for the leave of absence, my mind & thoughts have been elsewhere lately. A very special lady, my grandma, has passed and I've been thinking about her, celebrating who she was. This cake, however, like happiness and smiles all wrapped in one, makes the world seem like a pretty cool place.

{sweet dreams} bedding

My poor bed has been needing a makeover for quite some time, it's just white and kind of there - it's a blah bed, really. We have an incredible new mattress, but it's missing the dreamy factor. I'm loving this palette of plums, mustard, pink, grey & white - mellow but still full of whimsy, and slightly romantic, no?

{garden party}

If you close your eyes and imagine the most beautiful garden party, just try and say this isn't the perfect table scape. That Amy Atlas, she had me at hanging goodie bags and labeled straws - party genious!
