Eye Do!!!

When it comes to getting all dolled up for the Big Day you want to make sure your hair and makeup are done just the way you like it. You would prefer that the amount of hairspray in your hair does not make you a fire hazard, and your eye makeup does not remind any of your guests of the circus! Today's post features tips for Wedding Day eye makeup. 

Soft pink and deep plum tones are light and fresh. This combo looks great on almost all skin tones.

Hostess with the Mostest

With the holidays around the corner and dinner/birthday parties to attend, finding the perfect hostess gift is not always easy to come by. When picking out the perfect gift to thank your host or hostess for welcoming you into their home for a night of dinning and catching up with friends and family, it is important to keep their personality in mind. Think back to something they might have mentioned they wanted around the house or could have used when planning their big event!

Of course a nice bottle of wine, flowers, cards, etc, are perfectly acceptable, however, its always fun to get creative for your host after all they have done to put together such a great evening for your and your friends! offers unique and stylish accessories for the home. With accent pillows, candles, stationary and more, there are tons of options to choose from. Lucky for you there's even an entire tab devoted to gifts specifically geared toward hostesses!

Oh, cut the cake!

Want to know the sweetest part about weddings? The cake of course! A delicious end to an incredible evening in which two become one. The cake cutting signifies one of the first tasks the couple completes together as husband and wife. Leading up to that very moment, the cake sits in the center of the room, filling the event space with tempting scents. As guests walk by, they might snap a quick picture and anticipate the big moment in which they will enjoy their first bite. 

We've seen and tasted some pretty incredible cakes in our day. Couples are finding ways to express themselves in the detailing, flavors, and presentations of these tasty little treats. Take a look at some images we've pulled of some deliciously awesome sweet sensations!
