Summer Wedding: Soft Beauty

Inspired by all the beautiful pale colors that are so popular in stores. Blush pinks, corals, mint blues, and creams...all so romantic. 

I imagine a wedding in the garden of a beautiful southern Victorian home. Pretty little girls running around with gossamer light dresses, fairy wings, and flower crowns, beautiful ladies in pale floral frocks, gentlemen in bow ties and grey suits. A sweet bride with long wavy hair holding the hand of a handsome man with a gentle smile.

A mix of floral china patterns edged in gold. Champagne flutes that clink like bells. Laughter and music mix under a canopy of twinkling lights. Flowers over flow on tables, their sweet nectar perfuming the air. Couples dance, and children play, it is a magical evening.

Ready For A Beach Vacation

Can I just say, "I'm ready for a BEACH VACATION!" 

I want to dig my toes in the sand, feel the ocean breeze in my hair, and the sun on my skin. I want to laze about reading books, taking naps, and go shopping in cheap souvenir shops. 

Inspired by this video! The retro summer looks are just to die for!

I want to channel a retro riviera vibe, with pretty sun dresses, soft cotton tops, swingy skirts, relaxed shorts, and cute printed swimwear. Swipe on some bronzer, add a lil red punch to my lips, and some pretty flowers to my hair. Have my limbs smell of coconut and salt water, as I snuggle with the hubby, sipping yummie fruit flavored drinks.

Flower Power

I love the beautiful flowers in these photos, I would love to have a lush tablescape full of beautiful blooms, filling the air with their sweet scent.

New Lipstick I'm Loving! Maybelline Vivids

Today I was flipping through my new issue of Lucky magazine and came across a coupon for the new Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids Lipsticks. I've heard good things about them and have been wanting to try them out, so this was my sign to just do it! Hehe ;0)

I decided on the Vibrant Mandarin, and I'm in love! The color is super saturated and goes on silky smooth. I will be slicking it on tomorrow for work, so excited!

Get it here!

Tried it out today as soon as I got in my car, so enjoy the pics!

Movie Monday: Star Trek

Today's Movie Monday inspiration comes from the Star Trek Franchise. Over the weekend the hubby and I went to see Star Trek: Into Darkness, and it was AWESOME! Definitely a must see!

So I thought I would take a page out of the 60's generation and give us some mod cool Star Trek esque looks. 

The old school look, that is nodded to in the new movies, is all about the a-line dress, and a great pair of boots. Add some great winged eyeliner, throw your hair up in a high ponytail, and you're set for a great evening of Trekki goodness!

Set your phasers to stun, put a new case on your phone and show the world you love Star Trek!
