A Green Lace dress

Some of you might have seen this BEAUTY? It's incredibly gorgeous, right? Do you wonder about the wedding? 


This wedding photographed by the amazing Gia Canali everything was HANDMADE. A small romantic affair on the mountain where everyone got involved, either by baking the cake or painting the cake toppers.  
And the stunner she wore? the bride made it herself!

We went to the King's Road and ended up at Laduree in Harrods where I tried for the first time THE amazing macarons. ok I have to say that I wasn't big on macarons, well that's the past, Laduree knows their business and their macarons were like heaven!

Yep, Mom and me jumping! so much fun, you should definitely try it with your mom. Thank you mom for these days and thank you so much for being my photographer yesterday.

Chiang Mai

A couple of weeks ago I ordered a pair of Chiang Mai cushions, the Schumacher ones. I have been looking at them for months, yes, no? I wasn't sure and at the time I was on a spending hiatus but that's over and the cushions are now here! I might not be able to afford whole yardage to upholster an arm chair (note to self, I don't have a chair to upholster anyway) but I will have a little piece of this beauty.

I Heart Pinterest

I started this blog to store images, then it grew to what it is today. Then I opened a Tumblr account which is very nice and I love it but it still was a bit of a hassle to upload, add url, tag etc etc. But then Pinterest came AND made my day. It didn't work for me for a while, and I was really frustrated until I emailed them and they answered within minutes telling me that I needed to update my Safari browser. I did and it now works wonders! It's THE way to store images, create boards, get inspired by others, like and repin. You definitely need to try it, let me know if you want an invite I have some and I'd love to share the joy.

You definitely NEED to give it a go!

A wedding for a Twihard

I've said it before, I'm a big Twihard. Yes I turned 28 (yikes!) last month, who cares? Anyway, so Eclipse is finally out next week. And you also love how much I love a good weeding, you do, right? It's a clear FACT. Anyway, mix those two and what do you get? A Twilight inspired wedding by A Stunning Affair, it's an oldie, I know, but A GOODIE ;) I know many of you are Twihards, don't be shy, let's discuss.

















 If you haven't already don't forget to check out the Mi Vida Bonita giveaway 
Have a great weekend xoxo

Clog me with Hasbeen

Lately I have been wearing a lot my Vialis clogs, yes clogs, when the trend came out earlier this year, I was like "eeek, noooo!" Then I remembered that last year I actually bought my Vialis, what?? yes I did, and now I love them. They are comfy and give me height, yay! but now I'm actually crushing over the candy colored Hasbeens, yes the SJP ones! How cool are they?

A Succulent oasis in LA

Smog Shoppe is where the wedding I posted earlier was held. It's a green oasis in the middle of LA, host of desert plants ( succulents hence the inclusion to my Succulent Day II) and vertical gardens (we love vertical gardens don't we?). An industrial event space filed with a stunning garden and vintage furniture, what a great place to throw a party, don't you think?
