The Weekend is Here!

Wow this week felt sooo long… but, all of a sudden, it’s Friday!  Here are a few things I’m loving…

That fresh-faced, no-makeup look.

Gorgeous ombre totes.

Fun and casual invites to a wedding and pre-wedding BBQ.

Awesome DIY mason jar solar lamps.

A pretty dessert liqueur bar.

I have to try this DIY laundry soap, it looks amazing.

… and maybe use it to wash these towels? Or how about these?

My Halloween board on Pinterest… can’t wait to decorate!

Bridal Boudoir by TEAM Hair and Makeup/Lacie Hansen + To Boudoir or Not to Boudoir?


Wow this is a gorgeous boudoir session. The forest, the light… her awesome hair!

Seriously, can someone tell me why I wasn’t born with curly hair?

(grass is always greener *sob sob*)

The jury is still out on me + bridal boudoir… I love the idea, and I know Mark would too, I’m just not sure my confidence level is up to the super high heights it might need to be to lounge around in next to nothing and know the results would be… palatable.

I know I’m being silly, but do other brides out there have the same hangups? If not, are you planning to do bridal boudoir/if you’re not getting married, would you consider regular boudoir shots as a special gift for your guy? Particularly if they were as classy and gorgeous as this shoot?

For me, one thing is certain… if I do decide to do bridal boudoir, this session by TEAM Hair and Makeup and photographer Lacie Hansen (another Laicie!) will definitely be my inspiration.

Friday Link Love

How much do you love red lipstick?  I am a true believer that nothing is more flattering than the right shade, and Sydney (of The Daybook) is proving me right today.  I think I may spend a large chunk of my weekend perfecting that look right there.  Fall is just around the corner, after all.

… by the way, can we just talk about the proliferation of so many unbelievably gorgeous soon-to-be mommas on the internet?  I would give my left lung to look this amazing when I’m pregnant.

I would give my left lung to look this amazing on my wedding day, actually.

In the mean time, here are a few links for Friday…

A grouping of pretty little things for your kitchen.  My kitchen?  Yes, please!

One of my favorite new style blogs.  I can’t believe I’ve never been before.

This tiny yellow submarine makes me smile… I think it needs to come home with me.

I adore this DIY dessert table backdrop from Lauren of Lauren Elise Crafted on Postcards and Pretties.

Great “Save or Splurge” letterpress advice from Suann of Simplesong Design on 100 Layer Cake.

An adorable idea for asking your bridesmaids and groomsmen.

Pretty paper garlands from InkWhimsy on The Inspired Bride.

The cutest Christmas engagement shots ever.
