Fabulous Lighting: Leonardo Store

I love this. This would be fabulous for any event. Get some at Leonardo Store.

Cake Talent: Erica O'Brien Cake Design

We did not have a decorative cake since our colors were so strong (red and gold), we opted for a simple design. But I like when couples want to have a unique cake design adorning their cake tables. Some cakes look too pretty to eat. I love these cake designs by Erica O'Brien Cake Design. So many cakes start to look alike after awhile. But I must say that these designs are fresh and new. See more on her web site.

Finally, The Perfect Sash: White Aisle

I was catching up on one of my favorite blogs, Oh Happy Blog! and I was reading about a new line of silk products at White Aisle.

Chocolate and Cherries: Yummy Favors from Chukar

This is my first time even giving this some thought. Chocolate and cherries would make a yummy edible favor. Actually, chocolate covered anything (just about anything) sounds/looks good to me!

Fabulous Shoes and A Birthday Dilemma

Okay. My birthday is in two weeks and since I was 18 (some years ago), I have always bought myself a special gift from me to me. This year will not be any different. I love being a December baby. Birthday and Christmas all in one month. Woo-wee! So what comes in the mail yesterday to cloud my judgment was the lovely J.Crew holiday catalog. I salivated over every single page. So now, I am a complete mess. I was planning to get a new iPod as my splurge until I saw this coat. Now I do not know what to do. Decisions. Decisions. Anyhoo, they also had amazing shoes that would be perfect for your wedding. Here are my favs (the third pair are also on the splurge list... somebody save me):

The Vase to add the Right Ambiance

While going through my ton of emails (I am signed up for everything), I came across this wonderful vase from CB2. This teardrop vase could add an amazing ambiance to your reception decor. The price is so right at $4.95 each. Get yours at

What's Good at BCBG Max Azria?

BCBG is one of my favorite brands. Always modern. Always flirty. Always daring. Here are some great finds to wear to your engagement party or other dressy wedding events.

This one would make an amazing bridesmaid dress for a winter event. It is too perfect because it is long for your wedding day and converts to a short dress for your bridesmaids to wear to cocktail parties. Who could ask for more?

That Special Accessory: Your Necklace

I think that a necklace can make a tremendous difference to your wedding attire. Especially when your dress is strapless or has spaghetti straps. If you are like me, you like that special modern touch that adds an element of surprise. Here are some beauties from

Gorgeous Jewelry at Husak Design's Holiday Gift Show

The ever-so-sweet and talented Courtney Husak of Husak Design sent me a lovely email about their holiday gift show. Husak Design is teaming up with annemarie to host the event where you could score beautiful jewelry and purses for a great price. So if you are in Austin (and too sad for you if you are not), please go and check it out. If you haven't seen Courtney's work, I posted about it here. You can also see her amazing designs on her web site.

A Sad Day for Washington Redskin Fans

I am a huge sports fan. Football, soccer, basketball, hockey... whatever, I love it. I have been a Redskins fan since I was six year old little girl with pigtails. It was hard not to like sports in a house with two brothers and my dad.

Early this morning, safety and Pro Bowl player Sean Taylor died after what appears to be a robbery in his home. He suffered gunshot wounds in his leg and lost a lot of blood. I want to send my thoughts and prayers to his girlfriend, his young daughter, and his family and friends. Sean, rest in peace.
