Trash The Dress

One thing I am is very unique individual but I am on the fence about this idea of trashing a wedding dress. I know it’s different and would make for some fierce photos but I just don’t know. My thought on this is I personally, would either want to sell my dress, donate it, or have it made into a cocktail dress!  But trashing it? I guess if that floats your boat, but these pictures are vicious and I love it!

Weekend Plans

This weekend I am headed to a woman’s retreat (Definitely Need It) where I will be getting my spirit, body and mind renew! It is a breathtaking experience, where I gather with the women in my church, old and young and we talk about life, love, spiritual journey and career journey. We will also have a masseuse to come up and she will be administering 20 minute body massages. I am overly excited about this retreat because every time I come home I am renewed and redefined as a woman. I sure hope you have a safe weekend and enjoy! I am leaving you a visual of what my weekend may consist of! Enjoy!

Budget-Friendly Wedding Centerpieces

What’s one of the first things you see when you walk into a wedding reception? Centerpieces! Now I hate to be mean but I remember going to a wedding reception and thinking to myself WTF happen with the centerpieces. They looked so ummmm, what’s the word thrown together! Now don’t get me wrong, I understand we are all trying to save a few bucks but come on, people! At least make it look half decent and trust me you can! I have found some budget friendly centerpieces that will look fab and help you save some cash. *All Pictures Courtesy of Ms. Martha Stewart*

He Put A Ring On It!

Sorry if the title is misleading but it's not what you think! :( Anyhoo,what are some unique ways you would or did tell your friends and family that you were engaged?  If that day ever should arise for me I would love to tell them in a different way. For example maybe I would wear this t-shirt and invite them all out for a very casual dinner! Who knows!? All I know is that this shirt makes me smile!
