Sonia Roselli recently launched Sonia Roselli TV on YouTube with videos explaining how to do celeb-inspired make-up. If that isn't a reason to take a peak, well you can check out the fabulous Honey Bee Wedding coordinator Laura as well as one of our future brides, Nicole.
Laura is one of the fabulous coordinator's at Honey Bee Weddings. We introduced her and Steve here and here. Laura has a blog called Growing Kooky Together. Check out her adventures in travel, cooking, and shoe shopping.
I was so excited to work with Susan and Conrad for their October wedding! Susan was so cool, calm and collected throughout the wedding planning process, she was a dream to work with as we ironed out all of the details of the big day. I didn't meet Conrad until the wedding rehearsal, but I was excited to find that he was just as relaxed and easy going as Susan!
I love paper so baby announcements were on my must-do list! After seeing all of the great photos that Laurie Peacock took, we decided that we had to use as many as possible on the baby announcement. (It's funny how things change; before these photos, I had planned to do letterpress announcements via a friend.)
We had the fabulous Laurie Peacock take newborn photos of Francesca Elise. These are the photos that we used for the birth announcements. Laurie blogged about taking Francesca's photos. Click here to read her blog post.
Laurie is primarily a wedding photographer. I was her wedding planner so it was only fitting that she was the first person to shoot Francesca.
I'll post a copy of her baby announcements tomorrow.
So it only makes sense that Online Magazines are my latest addiction. I have been reading Lonny for ever. My latest reads are Matchbook, Adore and Highgloss. Below are some of my inspirations!
Loving this entire spread. I own that Kate Spade vase and while that isn't my exact sofa, the color is a perfect match. Oh, and I've had those Jonathan Adler stools on my Wish List forever.
Was pleased to see that I'm not the only person that still uses Juicy Tubes but was then horrified to see Chelsea Handler's choice in body lotions. Ugh! Maybe I should give up Juicy Tube collection?
Agreed with about most of this article regarding investment pieces. Most recently, I purchased a Burberry trench (#1) and feel validated by my decision. But #2 and #8 do nothing for me. Loved it but...
But if you really want the ultimate shopping list, turn to page 38 of Matchbook. I actually printed the checkoff list and am the proud owner of 29 items. I never considered myself a classic kind of girl but this list just speaks to me.
Hopefully, you can enjoy some of these online magazines for some inspiration.

Breastfeeding, at least in the beginning, is a two handed activity. Needless to say, I spent a lot of time sitting on my chaise watching TV. I quickly became addicted to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In one of the episodes, Adrienne Maloof is getting ready to leave. On her way out of her bedroom, in her amazing closer, she has her wedding dress framed.
This woman is a genius.
I can't find a photo or clip but is that not the most fabulous idea ever??? If you want to see her home, click here to watch a short video.
Now I realize that more and more brides are selling their dresses. To each their own. Personally, I am in love with my dress. And if I had 19,000 square feet, I would most definitely frame my dress as well (Imitation is the highest form of flattery, no?). Instead, it hangs in my downstairs closet, waiting for a better day.
So I haven't been blogging regularly. And I need to come clean.
I am addicted to blogs.
There, I said it.
But it is not really an addiction. I am OVERWHELMED with blogs. Like, I have ADHD via my Google Reader ("Reader"). It started with weddings. I mean, of course, I read tons of wedding blogs which link to other wedding blogs so my reader was growing and growing. It was under control.
Until I got pregnant.
And then I started reading baby blogs and nursery decor blogs. These blogs were linked to other baby blogs so my Reader grew and grew. It was not under control but hey, I was pregnant.
And then I bought a new home.
And even though I couldn't ever clean out my reader, I added home decor blogs. Since my readers are very cleaver, you can figure out what happened. These blogs were linked to other home decor blogs so my Reader is overwhelmed.
I have over 5000+ unread posts. And for some reason, I can't click "Mark as Read". No... they sit there and taunt me. Read me! Read me!
But I cannot. It would be a full-time job for me to read them all. So I am going to take some time to remove blogs. And, I hope to start blogging on a regular basis.
PS. Even though I am not blogging regularly, Honey Bee Weddings is still up and running!
