Hello Friday! Last week seemed to go by at a snails pace - this week was the opposite! The 4 weeks of planning events is almost over! I think we all blinked and September decided to fly by, so we're on to October and the true start of Fall! Here are a few things that made this week fun!
Wedding Weekend ||
I missed recapping the wedding this past weekend, but we had a great time celebrating with some of G's friends from high school! We all had a great time and the venue was perfectly intimate for a personal and romantic wedding! Kudos to the bride and groom for keeping their ceremony short and sweet - clocked in at 10 minutes!
Bridget Jones Baby ||
We have had a pair of movie tickets for almost a year now and we were finally able to use them over the weekend! That particular theater is only in the western part of the state, so I was able to convince G to see Bridget Jones with me! I have to say, this one totally made up for the 2nd movie being such a dud!! This is basically my favorite role of Renee Zelleweger's and I think it was on part with her debut of Bridget Jones! There were a few one-liners that we both kept repeating over the next few days - it was super cute!
I rewarded myself after a successful client event by picking up a new lipstick! This is the new collection from MAC called Liptensity and since I just finished this color over the weekend (how often can you say you actually get through a tube of lipstick?!) I wanted to try this new formula out in the medium rare color. I'm a fan! The pigmentation is amazing and the way it glides on and doesn't feel sticky or dry gives you the perfect finish!
Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos ||
Finally back in the cooking groove and these bang bang shrimp tacos are next on my list! Anyone that knows me, knows just how much I love bang bang shrimp from Bone Fish - being able to make it at home is like having a little slice of one of my favorite restaurants at home!
The Ocean ||
I feel like I hear so many more new songs now that I listen to iTunes Radio - this one by Mike Perry feat Shy Martin reminds me of carefree summers in high school and college! Which to me was some of the best times ever!!
Hope your weekends are great friends! I'm crossing my fingers for a mild weather weekend since a bit of the wedding we're coordinating is taking place outdoors tomorrow! See you back here Monday for some weekending fun!!
I am so excited to reveal some exciting news...our styled shoot was featured on Wedding Chicks! Earlier this year - in March, Valerie of VS Photography, Jackie & I (Bespoke Boston Ladies) met to figure out how we could collaborate on a styled shoot! We talked about what made sense for Valerie's expanding boudoir business and how we could highlight our coordinating and design services through the shoot and a Dreamy Boudoir Bridal Shower was born!
First of all, not only were we lucky to have such stunning models, but they are also our friends as well as former & current brides! The gorgeous arrangements were done by Bloom Floral Designs. We gave Kelly our vision and mood board and she created incredible bouquets that we all wanted to keep for ourselves! Hair & Makeup was done by the insanely talented Jocelyn from Jocelyn Mariah Makeup - also one of our vendors during our Bridal Pop Up Event. The overall look and feel came together seamlessly!
We wanted to showcase what getting ready with your bridesmaids might be like! Drinking champagne, laughing, getting your hair & makeup done and just having the best time! I don't think you'd believe that these girls had never met one another before the day of the shoot!! By the end of the day they were pretty much besties!
One of our goals for our business this year was to be featured on a wedding website and to know that we can check that off the list is a big accomplishment! Hopefully this is the first of many! This was truly a collaboration between all the vendors involved, but especially Valerie - her incredible eye for capturing the details and beauty - she is so incredibly talented! I can't wait for more collaborations!
Happy Monday friends! We had such a fun time out of the city at a wedding this weekend - really soaking in some of the first signs of fall here in New England!! Anytime we venture to the western part of Massachusetts, I try to coerce G into taking some photos! It seems like every side road leads to a waterfall or an old distillery building. On top of that it's home to some of New England's most beautiful historic colleges!
I knew the weather was going to be pretty much perfect on Saturday so I took that as my chance to start experimenting with some of the new items that I picked up over summer and couldn't wait to start wearing, but had to because, well summer! I can't get enough of my chambray top from Cloth & Stone. You've seen it here & here! I love how versatile it is, even more so that I can easily transition it into fall with this corduroy skirt that I scooped up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - I couldn't wait to start wearing it!
The purse was a recent find at TJ Maxx a couple weeks ago. I was drawn to it because it reminds me of the Chloe Saddle bag for about 85% off!! It's a no-name brand that's perfect for the weekends! I'm sure if you were to go to your local TJ Maxx you would be able to find it!
These lace up booties from Loft are the best of both worlds - again, not a current purchase but they do have black closed toed lace up ones on sale right now! I can only wear these for a few weeks before it's too cold for the toes to be out - but they are insanely comfortable!
I might have to slap myself after writing this, but I'm looking forward to pairing this skirt with a black long sleeve top, tights & boots when it gets even colder! I realized after being on Mount Holyoke's campus that I seriously miss the feeling of starting classes - not actually going to class and doing homework, but the feeling of being on campus!
Is there anything you are excited to start wearing now that the weather is getting cooler? How was your weekend? Link up below to share it with us!
Happy Friday friends! This week has felt extra long for some reason, but it's officially Fall - the temps are dropping and I'm ready to bust out my new boots! We are headed to a wedding this weekend - the start of 3 in a row for me! My last roundup was exactly a month ago, so it's been a long time - all of that changing today!! Here are a few of my favorite things from the week!
I love to sleep! That moment of getting into bed after a long day is quite possibly one of the best feelings out there. Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this pressure release as soon as you lay down!! When Gary and I decided that we were going to move, the first item we wanted to purchase was a new bed - so putting it right out there, this is not a sponsored post! We had gone to a few mattress stores to test out some beds, but they were really expensive, even with the promotions and deals that stores were offering, so I set out to find the new-ish trend if you will, of boxed mattresses that I had seen on a few other blogs!
