I gave my nails a little at home sparkle last night! What do you think?
It's so easy and the possibilities are endless! I started with a silver base coat. Then you add your own design with sharpies, and finish it off with a clear top coat! Zing!

Wedding Planning

It's a lot of work trying to plan a fun celebration for our wedding. It's just a lot of questions that need answers by yesterday on a limited budget (that each day I think -- well what if we just took a trip!!)

But I'm so excited to share our love with friends and family, and I know a night of good food, good tunes and good friends will be a night we cherish for many years!

Love of my life!

Here's what we need:


...plus food, friends... and a place to celebrate!
Ah! Once we have a few more details in place I'll be able to add my own sparkle to the evening which will be the fun part! 

Destination: Jamaica

Travel Tuesday - one of those days when I just want to pack my bags and hit the skies! But seriously.. why am I not relaxing on a stunning white sand beach with crystal clear turquoise water pooling by my toes. *heaven*

I'm pretty obsessed with every luxurious trip that BlackTomato creates, and every time their emails land in my inbox I swoon and attempt to figure out whatcanIdotomakeenoughmoneytogotothere!
