Flowers are everything, event designers have known this forever, florists are our secret weapon but clothing designers are just catching on. Gorgeous floral patterns are finding their way onto gowns, everyday wear and finally, work out clothes. When I saw these Nike ‘Air Pegasus 32’ Running Shoes I knew I had to have them and tracked them down faster then any PI has ever worked. I don’t know if having my feet adorned with flowers will get me to the gym any faster but it’s worth a try.
With summer in full swing… what better way to switch it up with a skinny yummy frozen margaritas!
Happy Hour Frozen Margarita vs. our Classic, on the Rocks
A regular happy hour frozen margarita is around 12 ounces and weighs in at 410 calories (56% coming from sugar). Our lightened version is 130 calories for a 6-ounce portion with just 14% coming from sugar The Cooking Light Margarita:
1 ounce premium or silver tequila, 1/2 ounce Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur, 1.5 ounces fresh-squeezed lime juice. Shake with 3/4 cup ice; garnish with lime.
I loveeeeeee flowers, to the extreme. If everything could be covered in florals and greenery the world would be a much happier place and every event would be a grand slam success. But sometimes, hiring a florist just isn’t in the budget for smaller events like showers, rehearsal dinners or engagement parties and that is where amazing DIYs like this come into play. I adore HUGE circular balloons and although I’ll always loves a tissue paper garland hanging off the string, a greenery and floral garland is really where my heart is at. I can not wait to try out this DIY from Style Me Pretty Living at the next small event I design or maybe just for myself for absolutely no reason other than this is perfection.
Choosing the venue for your wedding dictates so much about your big day. For starters, a lot of times it completely narrows down your actual date, your dream venue can book up a year in advance, so once you get that ring, start doing your research. And on a design level, your venue completely sets the stage for the feel and look of your day. For example, I probably wouldn’t suggest throwing a beachy wedding in the woods or an overly rustic wedding in a modern setting. You have to work with what you got. We’ve seen A LOT of venues and we want to share our knowledge, that’s what friends are for right? We have to start out with one of the best, The Ocean House. A five star iconic New England seaside resort set in Watch Hill, Rhode Island with views of the atlantic, just typing the name makes me want to jump in my car and retreat there for a weekend. You can hold your reception with in their elegant ballroom or plan for a gorgeous tented wedding with the ocean as your backdrop. The Ocean House aims to please and always hits the mark. If a New England wedding is your jam, make sure to take a peek at this gem, and thank me later when you realize Taylor Swift is this hotels neighbor, might be my favorite perk.
