Behold: BHLDN

I have a love/hate relationship with Anthropologie's new Wedding Line, BHLDN. I LOVE EVERYTHING about the designs: the gorgeous gowns, the perfectly adorned shoes, the delicate hair pieces...and I HATE that they launched after MY wedding. You're about a year too late Anthro! Oh well, I loved our wedding and wouldn't change a thing, but I am a little jealous of all the women who get to be BHLDN Brides. The silver lining: I can still choose from their pretties for parties, holidays & vacation ensembles! Check out the gorgeousness above and see everything they have to offer here.

One Pretty Thing

Good morning pretties! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I did-even though my sweet husband was out of town. Bummer. I'm so so glad he's back (just in time for our very first Valentine's Day as newlyweds.) Like it or loathe it, V-Day is on its way my friends. I have to say, even though I don't quite buy into all the hype, I'm still excited for another romantic date night with my hubs. And I think I might need these ADORABLE shoe clips for my Valentines Date Heels, no? Ban. do has so many cute shoe clips, headbands and other fun girly treats- check em all out here. Have a happy Valentines Day loves.

High Gloss Happy

Hello lovelies! Happy Wednesday to you. Its a snowy, icy, crazy-cold day here in Big D, so I am tucked away in our warm house, working away with a cup of tea in front of a fire. And besides cranking out some design projects, I'm also checking in on my favorite blogs and online mags. I definitley have a new favorite in High Gloss. This newbie to the online lifestyle publication game definitely did not disappoint with its premier issue. High Gloss is chock full of fashion and decorating goodies and I can't get enough. Check out some of my favorites from this issue above and read the whole gorgeous issue right here.
Hope you are staying warm.
