…Together, In Gorgeous Harmony!
Recently, Priscilla of Boston launched their 2010 Spring line. Down the runway walked a model wearing a pale pink dress paired with sexy red shoes. Ever since, I’ve been totally inspired by this color combo, so I thought I’d bring it your way…

You don’t need to wait for Valentine’s Day to flaunt pink and red, my dearies. The two colors make a sexy combo any day of the year, if you ask me! What do you think? Would you have your bridesmaids walk down in pink and red for your non-Valentine’s Day wedding?
…With Cupcake Bath Bomb Favors By Bubbles & Beauties!
This past weekend, my sister and I hosted a bridal shower for our little sister. Now that it’s over, I can’t wait to start sharing all of the details with you!

Nikol Johnson, creator and founder of Bubbles & Beauties, is seriously just as sweet as her cupcakes! She actually customized each one for us, in the bridal shower colors and also in my sister’s favorite Pink Sugar scent. She really made them so special, I can’t thank her enough!
When we received our shipment of cupcake bath bombs, they smelled soooo good, but since they looked like actual real cupcakes, I wanted to eat one! Fear not my fine feathered friends, I refrained from eating the favors. I was so happy with the great quality though, not to mention the ingredients ~ including mango butter, almond oil, French clay and natural salts. Yes, it sounded quite heavenly!

I knew I had a couple “regrets” as rsvp’s, so I was sneaky (ssshh) and took one of the favors into the tub with me, tried it and experienced my own soothing bath – which after all the planning, was definitely in order! Aaahh yes…life was good. Hey, a girl’s gotta pamper herself once in a while, right?
These cupcake bath bombs were a huge hit at the shower. Everyone loved them! I’m very pleased we decided to give them out. If you’re looking for bridal shower favors sure to impress, these definitely did the job. Actually, I think these would also make luscious little bridesmaids gifts as well- or a great gift for any occasion, for that matter!
They come hand-made in several different colors and scents, all ready to spoil you! A few of my personal favorites aside from the Pink Sugar include Fresh Lavender, Lime Cooler, Apple Mango, Chocolate Indulgence, Honey Almond, Strawberries & Champagne, Lemongrass & Sage and Coconut & Cream. But they’re all so tempting!
Keep checking back, I’ll be posting more pictures and details from the bridal shower this week…yay!
…With Lovely & Affordable Rings!
Man, weddings can get expensive, can’t they? By the time you’re finally done planning (or close to being done) all you want to do is chill. Maybe spend some time with your fiance…or let your hair down with your girls! After all, if they’ve been living up to their bridesmaid “duties” they probably need some chill time too. And maybe a little token of appreciation for all their hard work.
If you’re looking for bridesmaid gift ideas but you’ve broken the bank paying for your wedding, fear not – their gifts don’t have to be expensive, just special! Get them a little something special to not only remember your day by, but your friendship as well.

…Heels Are Hot, Ouches Are Not!
More often than not, wearing a hot pair of heels for the first time can become very painful…especially when you’re in them all day and night! I’ve recently come up with ideas on how to help prevent this pain, however it’s always nice to have a back up plan…
Include these with your bridesmaid or flower girl gifts for a little added comfort in case those annoying blisters do happen. Ouch! Find these and more at Creative Bride. Kiss their boo-boos goodbye, Dr. Bride!

The dresses were created by designer Leonie Grace, who recently launched her designs in Australia.

However, if you’re not located in Australia and are looking for similar designs, I’ve found a few others for you to swoon over…
Finish the look for your bridesmaids with black patent peeptoe pumps and bouquets filled with green hydrangeas. Soon you’ll be singing, “Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah…she’s got the look”! Happy dress shopping, ladies!
