Our Personalized Guest Book from Purple Trail!

Eeek! I’m so excited to share another sneak peek of our wedding details! I teamed up with PurpleTrail.com to create this really beautiful wedding guest book for our guests to sign on our big day. For our wedding day, I didn’t want to go over the top with personalized details because it’s overwhelming to manage and its just another stress-inducing thing for me to handle. However, small touches like a personalized wedding guest book can be a really nice addition to the big day.

A really neat thing you can do to customize your guest book is add custom pages! Believe it or not, this isn’t expensive to do and it makes signing a guest book more of an experience. We chose to do a fun page where people sign their names, offer advice, three words that describe us, and their wishes for us. You can even add a picture in the corner of . I chose a photo of David proposing to me!

Guest books are such an important part of a wedding day because they preserve the memory of everyone that was there to celebrate with you. And 50 years later you can look back at everyone who was there and appreciate that special moment in time frozen in your book! How wonderful is that?! I highly recommend browsing Purple Trail’s guest book selection. Even the cover was totally customized. If you’re getting married, enjoy every moment and detail of wedding planning! And if you’re not, share Purple Trail with someone you know who is!

Our Highland Park Village Engagement Photos

You guys I’ve been so excited to share these pictures with you! David and I took our engagement photos a few weekends ago and I’m over the moon with how they turned out! Our photographer Luisa is amazing and she and her husband have such an eye for capturing these special moments. We went to Highland Park Village to take some photos along the tree lined shopping areas and overgrown ivy walls. It was so pretty and just how I wanted it. Then we made our way over to Flippen Park to take some shots in the gazebo there and by the fountain.

I wanted our engagement photos to be really classic and something that reflected us. I knew taking photos in a grassy field outside the city was way not our style, so we chose to stay in the city. Highland Park Village is where Dallas’ top 1% go to shop. It’s a really lovely place and so much fun to stroll around with a cup of coffee. Lord knows I can’t afford to shop there yet!

David is wearing a suit from Brooks Brothers and I’m wearing a Ralph Lauren gown. I actually found my dress on eBay for $50 and got tons of compliments on it! Anyway, I can’t wait to show you the photo we choose for our save the dates we’re sending out in January! Hint: It isn’t a photo in this blog post!

Cozy Gifts Under $50 (and the Best Gift I Ever Received!)

cozy gifts under $50

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! David and I went back to my parents’ house for a few days to celebrate the holiday and then we flew back to Dallas before driving down to Austin for an overnight trip with some friends. It was a busy week and weekend and I’m so thrilled with all the great memories!

Sparkle Slippers | Pink PJs | Faux Fur Blanket | Candle | Christmas Mug | Heart Sweater | Champagne Flutes | Blanket Scarf | Hot Cocoa Sticks | Bath Soak | Sparkling Rose

I’m starting my Christmas shopping for everyone on my list and I’m doing it on a budget! We’re planning a wedding right now and I’m super budget-conscious about everything. But I shopped around and found a bunch of cozy gifts for under $50 you’ll love!

I’m super in love with the pajamas and the big furry blanket! I saw a meme the other day that said something like no matter how many blankets I have, they’re never not going to be a great gift!

A lot of these items are from Amazon too, so use your Prime membership!! Happy shopping!

$13 Steve Madden Wedges!

Hey everyone! I had to share this great shopping find from a week ago with you! I’m a sucker for a great bargain hunt and my favorite thing to do is shop for summer and spring clothes in the fall and then fall and winter clothes in the summer and spring. You get the best deals! Last weekend when I went shopping, Steve Madden was having a 70% off sale on summer sandals and these super cute wedge sandals were (wait for it!) $13 originally $100!! Score!

Here’s a link to them! They make me about 6 feet tall so they’re very high. I’m 5’8″ for reference. These are so cute with white frayed jeans and a chambray top! I can’t wait for spring to wear them. It’s like 32 degrees right now in Dallas so these sandals will be in my closet until further notice!

Target Dollar Spot Holiday 2018

Its here everyone! The holiday season is officially upon us. How did I come to this conclusion? Well Target Dollar Spot is stocked with adorable things for Christmas and Starbucks has their Peppermint Mochas again! Yay! When I was in Target over the weekend, I thought it would be a great idea to go through the Dollar Spot and show you guys what they have this year. It didn’t disappoint! I’m always impressed with their selection. I’m not decking the halls yet, but I am buying a few things here and there to decorate. Take a look at the fun things they have this season!

Isn’t everything adorable? I got the little sleigh and one of those pom pom hats! Trust me I’ll be sneaking a few more things in the house over the next few weeks (no one tell my fiance!). I won’t start decorating until after Thanksgiving though. I’m on the hunt for cute Turkey Day decor, so if you know of a good place to find some, let me know!
