Happy girls are the prettiest girls

Happy Girls

Sometimes the secret to life truly seems to be just L.I.V.I.N.G.

Today I was supposed to be at BlogHer in Chicago with a dear friend, but life happens and we had to cancel our plans last minute. So I found myself with a scheduled vacation day and no where to go. Cue perfect excuse for a personal recoup, rejuv, rejive day! Which I’ve decided needs to be a new monthly tradition.

A single day dedicated to pure, selfish, soul feeding, goodness.

Today’s installment came up a little unplanned, but it’s really brilliant in its simplicity. A single day. 24 hours. One day to focus on giving that used and abused creative muscle a day at the spa. Zee hubs and I decided planning future days will be a necessity. Otherwise we might not get a chance to really do all the fun, things we’ve been coveting for our creative souls. But today I will just be happy spending time connecting with the things that make my heart smile.

Things like supporting friends like Linda Kahle. Linda is the pint sized, “prettiest girl” behind Fine Art Imagery. I met her on Twitter once upon a time when I was toying with the idea of becoming a wedding planner. Because she’s an ABSOLUTELY talented little doll, we ended up having her do our reception photography (even though we had not even been planning reception photos!). And I cannot say enough how happy we are we did. She caught the most sentimental picture from our whole wedding celebration, which we cherish.

But she’s not all lace and satin…well at least not all white lace and satin. Linda has been busily building out her portfolio with Boudoir! And I cannot get over her fun video promoting this ultimate celebration of a woman’s beauty.

As Linda puts it perfectly, “to make every woman look and feel as beautiful as she actually is….”

Enjoy! And make sure you contact Linda for your special day…or night!

Eiffel For You…

Somewhere at the corner of Happily Ever After and way too little sleep, I crack myself up. Otherwise known as my idea for a Parisian themed wedding…

“Eiffel For You”

Get it!? haha <— See *literally* laughing at my own cleverness

Admittedly it very well could have been a term coined by another, but since I hadn’t seen it in all my Robin Hooding and pretty much everything on the web has been re-invented and reclaimed multiple times over anyway, I’m claiming it for ACL.

But more importantly, I’m sharing it with you…

Writing on the wall

This is for anyone who’s written their wedding vows, a best man or maid of honor speech, a toast. For those moments so special that you want to capture with the perfect words. And for knowing that sometimes, the best words have already been written…

Creating your backdrop with words from your favorite love songs, your own wedding song, your vows, a love story…

How do you say what’s in your heart?

This week in Robin Hooding…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been inspired by all the gorgeousness online. These are just a few of my latest favs. Hope you enjoy!

DIY Sequin Cocktail Glass Collars

One of my absolute favorite stalk-worthy wedding bloggistas has posted a fun DIY right in time for the holidays! How cute would your NYE champagne be decked in sequins this year?!

But of course you couldn’t dress up your cocktail while neglecting yourself…

Hair Flair

Voila! Hair flair if you dare. Lovely locks won’t be complete without one of these.

That is unless you have a crush worthy style like this

Half Updo

With some curl. A little wave. A bit of criss-cross action and a twist. This style is simple, yet elegant from wedding aisles to holiday parties!

And speaking of parties, don’t forget the little one! Deck her out with her very own sparkles using these fabric stickers (FABRIC GLITTER STICKERS!!! LOVE!)

Confetti Dot Skirt

And what holiday would be complete without a little bling?

Jennifer Stano - Wedding Bling

 

But honestly. Let’s. Just. Stop.

How beyond gorgeous and covetable is Mrs. Stano David’s ring bling? I mean seriously. Now that’s a Christmas Miracle…

Ah…but back to reality, how adorable would it be for your future hubby to pop the question while picking out a Christmas Tree? That’s the premise behind this lovable little post.

Christmas Proposal

So whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa…

Wherever you are around the world.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s pursuits in Robin Hooding! Happy Holidays everyone!

Then with a leap of faith, the always creative, Diego Munoz brings us an unbelievable Trash the Dress photo once again.

And finally with a tap of ruby shoes, we find ourselves back home with a personal fav. The lovely, talented, diva with the details, HeathOriginal brings us this beyond adorable Oz themed baby shower.

From lions and tigers.

To sweet baby smiles…

This couldn’t be a more perfect addition to our weekly roundup of Robin Hooding. And while I realize this last treasure is not a traditional “wedding” find, my tres adorablae niece makes it totally legit (not biased at all).

What have been your favorite finds this week? Any gorgeous gowns? Beautiful bouquets? Fabulous photographs? Please share!

 

Life’s short. Eat cake.

Sunday’s procrastination via beautiful details brought to you by E! For Etsy. and C! for Cherry Time who happens to have the coolest take on crochet.

This is not your Grandma’s needle…

And let’s just take a minute to talk about these fish.

Seriously.

{Nemo found love in a  hopeless place}

ADORBS.

So what do you think ladies and gents? Super cute right? Makes you think about taking up crochet right?

Helpful hint from experience. Those “instructional books” don’t instruct you into these cute little creations. Believe me. I tried and all I got was a floppy, lopsided start of a stocking hat. *sigh* Thankfully there are much more talented individuals in this world like Cherry Time!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday’s as much as I’m enjoying my ritual of Sunday procrastination! What’s your favorite way to spend the last day of weekend bliss?

xoxo loves!
