There’s a lot to think about when you’re getting married. You’ve got to think about who you’re inviting and then work out the venue based on this. Then once you’ve sorted this, what are people going to eat? How will you get to the venue? Do you want an nj limo service? Or a horse-drawn cartridge? Even deciding the theme is a big deal! But there’s one time you can forget all of this, and that’s your bachelorette party! And, my goodness, I was going to make this day last as long as I could!

For my bachelorette, I told my MOH (Maid of Honor) that all I wanted was sand. I wanted to be on the beach somewhere. We didn’t have to go to Miami, or the Bahamas, I just really wanted to hear the ocean. So I and four of my girls went to Tybee Island, Savannah Georgia. I would say so far it’s been one of the most memorable experiences of my wedding process thus far! Planning a bachelorette party with your friends doesn’t have to be expensive, especially as you’ve got the wedding to look forward to and the money you’ve spent on that big day. It’s all about having fun and being able to create memories with your friends. Looking for inspiration on what to get the bride to be for her bachelorette party? It may be worth checking out 40 Chic & Classy Bachelorette Gift Ideas She Will Love for some inspiration. With all this being said, as long as you have a great time, that’s all that matters! But I’m sure they’ll appreciate the gifts too.

Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays as far back as I can remember. Every single year without fail I have dressed up. Although my trick or treating days are gone (someone let me borrow your adorable kids) I still enjoy going out in a costume, eating too much candy, and pumpkin anything. This year for Halloween I decided to go as Morticia Addams… View Full Post

What I’ve learned living in New York City style. Growing up in North Carolina I always felt the need to try to fit in, and dress in a certain way so I wouldn’t stand out at all. In New York, I definitely feel comfortable dressing any way because everyone is so open minded. It’s one of my favourite things about the city. You can do anything, and become anyone. It’s a beautiful place to live and it’s progressive. I will say the same for the south, but NYC is definitely some ways ahead.

2.) The best stores are tucked away and not as easy to find. Chelsea, and Tribeca are both neighborhoods that have many tucked aways stores that a lot of people don’t know about. I also suggest going into a store that looks really interesting to you. Almost always, your gut feeling is right and you’ll find the most beautiful pieces randomly.

3.) Trends dominate more so here than other places. However, unique outfits are also prominent. It’s refreshing to live here and see so many distinct people and styles.

4.) New Yorkers are happy to help you. If you ask if a store has been picked over, or if a sample sale is worth the wait, you’ll be surprised how honest (and often times kind) most people are. There’s there stereotype that New Yorkers are rude, and excessively aggressive people that hate everyone. While I agree that New Yorkers are aggressive, I definitely don’t think they are rude, and insinuating that will cause one to be very rude to you. Just be polite and you’ll be surprised how far that will get you.
