handpicked bridal event + giveaway II

Lovelies, it's been too long! I've missed you so! 

I have something so lovely to post about today, and love that its getting me to blogging when I have been so busy and in a funk for so long now. But enough about me, lets talk about parties!

The first Handpicked in December 2013, was breathtaking to say the least. Complete with a smores bar, delish drinks, sweet chocolates, hot cocoa bar, THE BEST of the best vendors, fun music, photo booths, and just so much more. I took my mom with me for a girls night out, and we had such a great time.

If you read my blog by now you know I adore weddings, and they hold a special place in my type-A, list making, planner heart. You would also know by now my excitement about this new bridal event that's taking our area by storm. I had the amazing opportunity to attend the first one in December (which was a-mazing) and give away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner.

Myself, mom, and some friends enjoying the photo booth on the way out. 

Just as I was last year I am so super excited for this event because there is nothing like this for future brides in this area. This event is all about bringing you the best of the best vendors, not filling a ballroom with hundreds of vendors to overwhelm you. 

This event is the brain child of the incredibly talented Baci Designer (aka local wedding guru who's been featured on the like of!). I'll let the team at Baci give you the run down on this lovely little event.

Hello My Long Lost Lovelies!

It has been so long since I've been in my blogging "funk". I've posted here and there but for the past year life has been so crazy! I am finally feeling rejuvenated and ready to start posting regularly. For those of you who follow me on Facebook, I've still been quite vocal there sharing different things that I would normally share here. You might have noticed something BIG that happened, I launched my very own online boutique! That was one of the main reasons I have been so quiet here, I was spending all my spare time on getting the launch up and running. The boutique is called b♥lovely and you can check it out and shop it HERE!

Just for my readers I made a exclusive discount for 10% off! Just enter the code ALLBLOG10 at checkout :)

I launched in December and it has been great so far!! The response has been awesome. I can't wait to see where this next journey takes me. I'm starting off small but hope to carry more and more as time goes on. I wanted to stop by here and let you all know about it and to let you know that I am giving away 2 $10 credits to the store right now! 

Head on over to the stores Facebook page and enter! 
We have lots of lovely new items coming our way soon too!
