Currently Reading...

This weekend, I am bound and determined to finish reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  I actually got hooked by listening to the audiobook on our way home from the wedding in Colorado.  I highly recommend it if you have any long trips in your future!

You've probably already heard of this book, and you probably already know there's a movie coming out in August too.  But if you didn't here's the trailer!  I absolutely adore Emma Stone.

Diament Designs

So, back to my normal ramblings with random wedding recaps thrown in :).

I wanted to tell y'all about Diament Designs jewelry today.  It's super affordable and unique!  Here are a few of my current favorites:

If you're in NYC, they carry this line at my friend's store in Park Slope - Eponomy.  And if you haven't checked out Eponomy before, I highly suggest you do so - if for no other reason than to meet the owner's lovely french bulldog Bianca!

Oh, and if you want a wedding fix for the day - here's our wedding slideshow . Hope you like it as much as we do :).

Wedding Sneak Peek

So, we got back from our wedding last week.  No honeymoon just yet - we'll most likely go to Croatia next summer, so don't feel too bad for us ;).  We had such a great time seeing all of our closest friends and family in the same beautiful place.  If it works for your families, I can confirm that a destination wedding is definitely the way to go!  Hands down!  We were able to have so much fun and spend quality time with the majority of our guests.  It made the actual wedding day that much more spectacular and memorable.

My photographer Alison White posted this photo to her facebook site, so I thought I'd share...

And yes, I wore a birdcage veil.  I absolutely loved the vintage look of it! But instead of buying one of those expensive ones on Etsy, I found a really affordable one here.  I used those savings to buy the brand new Chanel makeup that I'm wearing in this photo. I went the "peach and spices" route, even though I was initially thinking dramatic red lips. The reason I changed my mind is that I just didn't look enough like myself with the super red lips and dark shadow.  I've decided that look is better for a night out, rather than my wedding day (but if you feel comfortable in it for your wedding, please go for it! I'm just a whimp). Regardless of color, I ended up being very pleased with how my "face" lasted throughout the night.  Go Chanel!

More wedding recaps (and many more photos) to come...
