So here are 10 travel-related gift ideas for honeymooners or things you should get for yourself before your next trip. Bon voyage!

    A Honeymoon in Jamaica

    A Honeymoon in Jamaica | Sandals Resort on Oh Lovely Day

    Back in April (has it already been over 7 months!?) I was hosted by Sandals Resorts in Jamaica for a little getaway to see what a wedding or honeymoon in Jamaica could be like. To be honest, I had never considered Sandals Resort for a vacation and had never been to Jamaica either. I was beyond pleasantly surprised with how wonderful it was, and have been wanting to take my little family back (to the Beaches version – kiddos allowed!) ever since. It was the most luxurious and pampered I have ever felt. So I wanted to share a bit of my trip with you since many of you are probably planning your honeymoons and destination weddings right now. I highly recommend the experience. Read More »

    Pretty Lingerie for your Honeymoon

    I think sometimes lingerie can be intimidating for many of us ladies, but it is usually because the idea of lingerie is something that is not our style or personality. It’s overtly sexy, cheesy, very in your face va va voom, and maybe not you. There is some really beautiful lingerie out there, pieces you’ll actually want to wear and will feel sexy and beautiful in. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites. This is one of those posts to share with your bridesmaids (along with your lingerie sizes) before your personal shower or bachelorette party. Or shop for yourself from the ‘shop the post’ gallery at the bottom of the post (where you’ll also find the sources for each item).

    Sometimes nothing is sexier than white, and I think a pretty white lacy chemise for your wedding night is a must. These are some of my favorites out there. Grecian, lace, polka dot prints: which is your style? Or you more into color like the picks below?  Read More »

I highly recommend it. Read More »

    {Sponsored} 5 Reasons to Have a Honeymoon Registry

    Honeymoon Registry - Beach Destination - Honeymoon Pixie

    I’ve been very vocal about my own experience using a honeymoon registry (I loved it!) almost four years ago, but it seems that some people are still on the fence about the idea.  However, the honeymoon registry is becoming popular as many couples find it most appropriate for their needs. After all, the purpose of a gift registry is to take the guesswork out of gift giving. Read More »

       First family of five outing: picnic, friends, jazz, champagne, crazy boys. We did it! Thanks for the pic to prove it @jsmithla. #fredrickpartyoffive #OLDsfaveplacesinla  The windows are open and a breeze is blowing in the smell of the night blooming jasmine outside. Calvin is napping. Quincy is nursing. Chili is cooking. I got decent sleep last night and had a productive morning. We have family plans with friends this evening. The wine is chilling. I got these flowers from Trader Joes for $7 and the ranunculus are the prettiest yellow. They reminded me of someone which reminded me to stop and appreciate every single thing I just listed and more. Every giggle, every smile, every breath, every cuddle. Every quiet moment. Every loud moment. Every single moment. Everything.
