The After Parties~ the Oscars

What a fabulous night at the Oscars last night! I'll be posting the dresses later today but for now I wanted to share a few of the post award show pics. I love seeing what happens after the show is over. Oh, how I dream of attending, maybe some year.... sigh.

{this photo of Audrey Hepburn & Grace Kelley backstage at the Academy Awards in the 50's never gets old. What a pic!}

Happy Weekend! I am so happy to see Friday morning come! I have a fun and busy weekend ahead. Tomorrow morning I am starting off with a training run for the relay race I am running, volunteering at a race pick up, I am attending the Bridal Trends show in Miami. Sunday I will be up bright and early for the Riverwalk Run Race {I am in charge of breakfast after. Not surprised.} Later that afternoon Beau has the day off and we are making a stop in midtown Miami at the Nail Bar. This is place is such a great place for a pedi/mani! Maybe I can even convince Beau to do something:) Then Sunday night....get ready for the Oscars! I am a huge fan of the Oscars. I absolutely adore watching them. I am wishing that I had time to set up a soiree, next year. This year I'll be home with some bubbly and homemade popcorn cheering on Anne and James while they host. Should be a good show! Here are a few links I'll be reading throughout the weekend in my spare time:)

What a great idea for your bridesmaid. The girls at Styled Creative create such awesome events and they always seem to be having such a fun time. Check out these amazing boxes.

I heard that Sweet Valley Twins was coming out with a follow up book as an adult version! Wow, must purchase the book. Memories of my childhood.

I am so loving this Super Hero themed party. I feel that even though it is for a child, you could completely transform it into an adults birthday as well.

My girlfriends are starting to have babies. Maybe Auntie Becca can plan a baking birthday party for one of them some day.

Beau and I went to the South Beach Wine & Food Festival last year. It was such a fun day! I can't wait to go back next year. If you do not have any plans tomorrow and you just happen to be in, go! The event is a wine and food lovers paradise set up on South Beach.

Looking for some new prints, I fell in LOVE with these paintings from Janet Hill Studio on Etsy.

Lucile's Kitchen ~ Etsy Shop

My wonderful girlfriend Cerys sent me this Etsy shop earlier this week, Lucile's Kitchen. Lucile is a beautiful French illustrator who paints watercolors and sketches of pretty food prints. I am so in love with her pretty images.

The Messy Ponytail

A couple of weeks ago I saw this image on Pinterest {one of my new favorite sites} and have been meaning to try it out since. I have always been a fan of the second day {or third day} hair in a teased messy ponytail, but some how my pouf always falls in a few hours. Thank youJoanna from a Cup of Jo for putting together this post! I tried it out today and the bobby pins so help piece it all together.
Isn't her friend Caroline so cute with the messy pony and the bright lipstick. A messy but oh so chic look!

And here are some of the JCrew looks that Joanna was referring too. Yes, they look adorable and their messy ponytails are just perfect!

Bryce Dallas Howard for Kate Spade!

I am absolutely in LOVE with the new Kate Spade Spring/Summer campaign featuring the bright and cheery Bryce Dallas Howard! The photos in the campaign are so happy! I love the rainbow colors, her bright red hair and I love love love the splashes of hot pink. I told beau earlier this year as we walked into the Georgetown Kate Spade store, "sigh, this is one of my happy places for sure!". Oh yes, it is!
The Candy Shop Jeanette Dress is on my Spring Wish List for SURE!
The Essex Scout bag would be a great addition to my closet. What girl doesn't need a hot pink purse!

See, Bryce and I have something in common already, we both love and have the Camille Bag from last season, how cute is it! Yep, my orange loving beau surprised me with it for Christmas.

Oh Kate, you always seem to have amazing items, campaigns, you are fabulous for sure.

Wedding Wednesday! ~ BHLDN

Anthropologie, the amazing unique store that we all LOVE has created a wedding store, BHLDN. The name of the store was inspired by the Dutch word "to keep" {I asked my Dutch beau and we figured to keep, tales of marriage, stories, etc, spelling, not so sure, anyways}. Click on the site, it is full of beautiful dreamy pieces!

These wedding dresses are crafted beautifully!!!

The jewelry pieces are all intricate and ofcourse, gorgeous. How amazing would it be for your fiance to give you these pair of ly earrings, sigh!

Not only do they have wedding dresses for the brides, they also created dresses for the bridal party, or guests!

Hello amazing shoes, I need both of these, wedding or not.

I am totally an addict of head pieces. I love a pretty bow! I especially love the bow and a veil, I'll keep this in my mind.

The bloggers are loving BHLDN. Above is the beautiful Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere getting a sneak peek at the line. Emily is newly engaged and I can SO see her in something from BHLDN walking down the aisle.

Laura at Make Merry! Event Design created this wish list board. Yes, I agree, the ruffled gown is so beautiful!

Enjoy BHLDN! I see us all falling in love with it!

Remember when you were little and would buy a box of Valentine's card to give out to your friends. Sometimes they had candy attached and matching stickers. You would stuff each others Valentine's boxes in class.
So fun! Well even though I'm almost 30, I still enjoy a sweet card. I found a few favorites this year.
It was hard to choose. Maybe my beau will get 10 cards!

{these adorable sweet cards are from the amazing Hello Lucky!}
