Bridal Baubles Inspiration (Something Blue)

The other day I was thinking, why not do your “something blue” in the form of jewelry? I’m not sure if that’s a popular idea but I am exploring it. Earrings or a bracelet in a blue hue could be divine and depending on your dress/accessories/atmosphere, could be as subtle or as attention-grabbing as you like. I’m probably not going to do a necklace but that could be beautiful as well.



This isn’t blue but I am slightly dying over it.

Moving & Marrying

As of Friday morning (the same day I woke up at 4am to watch the royal wedding) there was nothing packed in either Robert’s or my house. As of today, we are living in the new house. So… a lot went down over the last few days. There was rain, there was 40 degree weather, there were floods and not everything is complete… BUT! we spent the night there last night! I cannot put into words the relief I feel today as I think about my new home with the guy I love and our little doggies. More to come about decorating and the like…

I hope you had a good weekend!

My Wedding Inspirations

Today is April 27th. That means our wedding is exactly four months away. I hyperventilated a bit when I realized. In honor of that and of the royal wedding (of course) I thought I’d share some of my wedding inspirations. If Kate Middleton forsakes Queen Victoria’s jewels for flowers in her hair I will never forgive her.

Home (Dreams & Musings)

Jan/Feb 2010

I’m house-hunting again. Robert and I are trying to find a place for June 1 and I’m getting antsy. I’m hoping for a big backyard, a front porch, a cozy kitchen and lots of closet space. We’ll see what we end up with. Here are some (dream) spaces I’m loving…I’m trying to keep in mind I’ll be living with a boy. It should be interesting. All images via decor supersite Lonny.

Bridal Inspiration {Our Honeymoon}

We booked our honeymoon! AHHH! I’m so excited. We are going to Italy (Rome and Positano) for eight days. We’re staying at the Marcella Royal Hotel in Roma and Hotel Buci de Bacco in Positano.

Bridal Inspiration {Shoes}

In dreamland, my bridal shoes would be Miu Miu, McQueen, Jimmy Choo or Louboutin. Dream with me, won’t you? This is if I go the more traditional route…I will have to devote an entire post to non-traditional shoes.
