Update: D.I.Y. Invitations

For my invitations I created my own design and ordered 100 free postcards from Vista Print. At first I was worried about how glossy they would turn out, I was expecting something high gloss and funky. I recieved them last week and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they weren’t glossy at all. They were a almost matte with a slight glossy finish. We’ve decided to change everything about my wedding including the venue, so they were irrelevent by the time I recieved them, however, I’m going to go through the same process again, because I liked the way they turned out. Yay.

Register Madness

I feel really weird registering for anything. I think because for one, I live in an apartment and so I don’t have much storage and two because we’re in the middle of a recession and I don’t want to be a burden on anyones wallet. But a I read an article about why you should register and I took away one thing. Register for things you ould use for the rest of your life. The only thing I can think of that I could really use and would benefit me in the future is flatware. It’s easy to store and I use it 24/7.  Here are a couple of my faves so far.

Shoes!!! Shoes!!! Shoes!!!

I thought once I found my dress I could stop stressing about what I was wearing on the big day. Sike! I was so wrong. So now all I think about is what shoes I should wear. But the obsession doesn’t stop there. It’s my excuse to buy really awesome everyday shoes. So not only do I look into the cutest shoes I can find, but also how sturdy they are and how comfortable are….here’s what I like so far.

DIY: Lip Scrub


I think at this point everyone knew about this method, but me.  I used about a tablespoon of white grandulated sugar and added a little bit of olive oil, enought so it was thick and pasty but not enough to make it oily.

Then I put it on a tooth brush and scrubbed. Rinsed the toothbrush and then added the rest of it and scrubbed some more. It was awesome! I felt like a movie star with super smooth, glowy lips! But the next day they felt back to normal.

So I tried it again but this time added honey, because I know that it holds in moisture. And voila, awesome lips that last for days!

Real Wedding: Sharon and Dean

I found this awesome wedding on WeddingBeePro. Instead of wanting something campy, like moi, they chose to go for the subtle Hawaiian vibe. Their super gorgeous flowers were done by Kristen from The Treasured Petal. I’m so impressed. I have yet to find someone incorporate ginger as beautifully as in this cocktail centerpiece.

Check it.
