Rimmel London StayGlossy Look 8

And last but not least, look number 8 (and the last look – eek!) in the Rimmel Blogger contest was the “Stylish Look for sitting front row at London Fashion Week.”  Getting the chance to attend a London Fashion Week would be a major dream, by the way.  And when dressing for a fashion show, you want to look professional-ish, with plenty of your own style mixed in, and ever street-style-photo-ready.

And if you could take a minute today to vote for me and forward this post to a friend (or twenty), I would so appreciate it!

Rimmel London StayGlossy Look 7

Look number 7 in the Rimmel Blogger contest was a “Princess Look for when the clock strikes twelve on New Years”.  I’ve got princess down pat – I’ve been dressing like a princess (or at least trying!) since I was about two.  So, I went with more tulle, and a whole lot of sequins. Plus, I threw on a striped cardigan for good measure, because yes, I’m that girl who puts a cardigan on over her party dress.

After having a destination wedding of our own, and learning the ups and downs of planning from a distance, I’ve put together a few pointers for throwing a great destination wedding.  Choosing the perfect venue for our wedding was so important to my now-husband and I.  We loved to travel, loved good food, and wanted to share all of that with our closest friends and family.  We also cherish the memories even years after the wedding and love sharing our story with everyone and anyone who will listen!

Bridesmaids in Pink Ruffles

I’m practically squealing over these bridesmaids dresses.  They’re pink, with ruffles, and designed by none other than Betsey Johnson.  The dresses are also in every fluffy shade of pink imaginable, and the bridesmaids clearly chose the styles that suited their personalities best.  I’m in love!
