contest: Sparkle Thots


Sparkle Thots is giving away this gorgeous hair piece! Hurry! contest ends 4/15!!! Head on over to Sparkle Thots to enter!

Although it's advertised as a hair piece, the piece is so versatile! Think of using it as a belt/sash to add some spice to a cute pencil skirt & top! Or, if you're getting married any time soon, use it as a sash to your wedding gown! In fact, the sash I had used for my wedding day originated as a hair sash! oh, the possibilities!

I'm swooning over this piece. I really love delicate, unique items such as these. Check out their jewelry too!

How adorable is this ring:


I love the uniqueness of these earrings:

an untraditional entrance

I just can't get enough of our wedding :) I love every detail of it!! One of the highlights for the wedding party (and hopefully our guests) was the men's entrance....

luckily, a friend was able to capture it on video for us...

so without further ado...i present to you, Husband and his groomsmen:


I'm married!!!!!! Our Friday wedding was AMAZING!! Husband (formerly known as Fiance) and I are mini-mooning it up at the local beach for the weekend :)

In the meantime, here's one of my favorite pics from the day (from a friend's camera)

Top That, wedding cake!

With a wedding cake topper of course! It was a difficult decision to decide what we wanted as our wedding cake topper. Did we even want one?? Fiance and I had somewhat discussed the idea of a topper, but we kind of just figured we'd throw some flowers on top to make it simple & easy.

but then, a genius idea hit me! and I wanted it to be a surprise. The problem was... it had to be customized... so off I went to my go-to-place for customized work-

I looked for custom cake toppers. My vision was to have our cake topper resemble our characters from our save the date magnets:

So I scoured etsy, looking for someone who could make my idea come to life! And then I discovered Sophia's Workshop. After only a few conversations and a picture of our magnet- she created a sketch for us:

looking pretty spectacular right? I think so!
oh yea, if you're wondering about why my outfit is altered, it's because I asked her to add a flower sash that I'll be wearing with my dress and to put shoes on that resemble my wedding day shoes.

So on Thursday, we get our fedEx package...the one I've been checking the tracking status every day and practically every hour to see when it was going to arrive!

I open up the box, tear the packaging open, and am sooooooo thrilled to see our topper:

I could not be happier. I showed fiance as a surprise..and of course, he loves it too!!

Are you planning on topping your cake with anything special?
