    {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 »


    What Honeymoon is Right for You + A Lovely Vacation for ME

    Hi lovelies!  I’m headed to my brother’s wedding this weekend (probably my last time as a bridesmaid and Charlie’s first time as a ringbearer – can’t wait to see him in his little suit!) and then I’m taking a bit of time off to spend with family.  I have some great guest posters lined up for you.  I hope you enjoy reading their posts as much as I have.  There are some DIY’s, cocktail recipes, inspiration boards, and more!  Leave them some love if you have a minute.  And if you want to see Charlie as a ringbearer (probably not, but indulge me a little) or want to see me be a tourist with my sweetheart in NYC, be sure to follow along on instagram.

    Oh, I’m also on Bloglovin now. Follow my blog with Bloglovin, especially now that Google Reader is going away!  That’s how I’ll be keeping up on my blog reading.  And I’m making an effort of finally getting to know google + too.  So be sure to find me there as well.

    Now, are you planning your honeymoon but aren’t sure what type of honeymoon is right for you?  Not sure if you want to go sightseeing in Paris or lounge on a beach in Jamaica?  This infographic quiz from Phase Eight may come in handy.

    what honeymoon is right for you?
    Since this weekend is Mother’s Day, tomorrow I’m sharing my birth story. It is a long and sometimes rough story, but it has a happy ending. I read a lot of birth stories when I was pregnant, and they helped me get mentally prepared for the possibilities, but eventually I went overboard and they started making me anxious and I had to cut myself off. I don’t want to scare anyone, so don’t read it if you scare easily, but just know I’m only sharing in an effort to let you know you aren’t alone and if I can do it, you can do it!  And ask questions – I’m happy to answer anything in the comments or in an email.

    {Sneak Peek} Destination Weddings in Jamaica

    wedding at sunset in Jamaica at Sandals ResortHi lovelies!  I just wanted to share a little sneak peek with you today of my visit to Jamaica to bring you lots of ideas and inspiration on destination weddings. I traveled far and really had to rough it in a Romeo and Juliet Butler Suite at Sandals Resort to research wedding possibilities for you – tough work, I know! While I’m traveling back to California I wanted to share a little teaser of what’s to come. And you can find lots more on my instagram feed.

       Getting our morning exercise in at @lacma. Calvin loves to walk the lights. If you missed my post on the blog about it last week, Urban Light is a great place to take your little walkers -- it's clean and empty before #lacma opens. LACMA is probably my favorite spot in the city to take littles of all ages -- lots to do and very well maintained (which is important when you have a kid that likes to pick up and put everything in his mouth). Head to my blog and search LACMA to see more. #OLDsfaveplacesinLA // outfit note: both the romper (summer) and cardi (fall) are from @juneandjanuary and I just got my order from the fall line and everything is darling. I love the soft material, the heathered styles for fall/winter, and the side snap tees, hooded rompers, and October hats are  I just wish I would have ordered more of the pants for Calvin and baby 3. Staple pieces that can be layered and worn for a long time. #whatcalvinwears #juneandjanuary #freshlypicked #calvins2ndyear
       Since I couldn't attend #nybridalweek in person this season, I'll be sharing and regraming some of my favorite looks throughout the week. Love the style of this veil and big bouquet paired with a sweetheart neckline and a bare neck from the @annebargebride show.
