My October Wedding

I'm engaged! And I am currently planning an October wedding. And here is a little sneak peek into my wedding theme.

A summer wedding calls for bright flowers and neon bridesmaids dresses. A winter wedding; black magic roses and red decor.

But for an October wedding, I was inspired by OPI's "over the taupe" nail polish. It screamed FALL Wedding. I was inspired to have a taupe and ivory wedding.

Weddings, bridesmaids, and peonies,

Work Hard to Play Hard

Living a good life is all about balance. If you work hard, make sure to reward yourself by playing hard too! So today after a crazy leg day at the gym, where I squated a hefty 115 lbs. I showered and headed out to the nail salon for a mini spa vacation where I can soothe my muscles and escape reality for an hour.

And you don't have to break the bank to treat yourself. Trust me. Just ask for a polish change on hands n' feet (this is usually $10 for both!) but ask if you can sit in a spa chair. And chances are they'll let you soak if A. You've been going to the same place for years or B. if you go at slow hours like lunch time on weekdays or later on weekends.

Don't forget to tip them ;)
What's an appropriate tip for $10 mani pedi? $3 should be good.

How to escape: when you sit in that spa chair...grab ur headphones and listen to some soothing music (try Diva Premal on Pandora) and close your eyes. Be aware of each breath you take. Drift away into positive light n' love.

2012 Grammy Hits!

The 2012 Grammy Awards 
was not my favorite...
...a lot of old singers, boring performances (except Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson), and the fact that there was no red carpet pre-show was a NO-NO for me...
...there were some eye-catching beauties there that night.

Here are my top 3 favs

1.Rihanna in her black silk Giorgio Armani gown with a plunging neckline and high-cut slit.
However, more than her attire, it was her raw and untamed hair that I L-O-V-E - loved!
Her golden-caramel lids and bold smoky look are a great compliment to her wild roots and sunkissed hair.

2. My second favorite look was Adele's Old-Hollywood look.
Her nails and matte-red lips and voluminous, big hair was sooooo in sync with her humble aura.
Adele, You are a TRUE Hollywood beauty and you deserved each and every grammy!
Someone Like You - Go Girl!!!

3. Fergie!!! Oh, Fergie! You looked fab in this orange lace dress!
And your traditional "POOF" is so awesome!

 These were my 2012 Grammy Favs

What were yours?

Daring, Bold, and Beautiful
