Miami Bound Part 1

I'll be off to Miami for Labor Day weekend, so I'm contemplating what to pack. I'm so not prepared for 90% humidity! I'll have to pack accordingly, and everything has to be nice and breezy. Here are some cute dresses I found online that would be perfect for a Miami getaway.

More Amazing Vacations

I've definitely had vacations on my mind lately. My husband and I are trying to figure out what to do for his birthday, and the ideas range from camping in Catalina to jet setting in Portugal. These next amazing hotels I found at are so ridiculously tempting! They are on my list for sure!!

I am so in love with this one!! Discovery Boat in Alapuzzha, India

Pom Pom Beach Village in Semporna, Malaysia

Mushroom Dome Cabin in Aptos, California

Kasbah du Toubkal Morroco in Marrakech, Morroco

Dance The Night Away

One thing I wish I had on my wedding day was a little white dress to change into after the main festivities. It probably would have put my mind at ease from stressing about spilling on my gorgeous wedding dress. Actually, I was more worried about others spilling on me, so I was trying to steer clear of those that looked like they didn't have the soberest grip on their wine glasses. Here are some wonderful affordable options I found at ModCloth.

"Gloden Rule Mini Dress"

"No One Can Take Your Lace Dress"

"Cake From Scratch Dress"

"First Dance Dress"

"Ladies Who Lunch Dress"

"All The Fuss Dress"


This post from the wedding blog, Style Me Pretty, is seriously the most beautiful wedding photo shoot I've ever seen!!!! I'm kinda weak in the knees right now. This makes me want to get married all over again. Whenever my hubby and I decide to renew our vows, I can guarantee it will look pretty much exactly like this. Click Here to see this gorgeous beach shoot! Though I am pretty proud to say that we got our own seagulls in our wedding photos too. See Below :)

Pretty Pretty Bride

In honor of one of my besties, who is getting married this Saturday, here is one of my new favorite wedding dresses from J.Crew.

If I had $3,000.00...

I'd buy this clutch... or a first class ticket to Tahiti.

Pamela Love "Metal Bag"

Free People, My People

Not many things can compete with my incredible weakness for Anthropologie. But my love of the brand Free People comes pretty darn close. Here are a few items that are on the top of my list.

"Tres Jolie Coat"

"Sleeveless Home Sweet Home Tunic"

"Peter Pan Tunic"

"Centered Pullover"

"Loving Lace Trapeze Dress"

"Open Circle Sweater Dress"

"Sleeveless Lace Dress"

Anthro, My Love

Oh Anthropologie, why must you do this to me?! You have so many things... and I want them all. I REALLY do try not to look up the new arrivals at Anthropologie, but that's about as hard as not wanting to snuggle with a baby panda.

"Dwarf Quince Cardigan"

"Meadow Dreams Chemise"

"24K Myosotis Dess"

"Porcelain Serving Pot"

"Flores Lawn Chair"

"TokyoMilk Bon Bon Bubble Bath"

"Wickle Organic Wrapped Soap"

Mini Vacations

So by now, maybe some of you have come to realize that I love anything mini. I love teeny tiny foods, and I love teeny tiny gadgets even more! But no one could have predicted the incredible woo-hoo inducing excitement I felt this week when I opened a travel e-mail from Concierge Travel regarding mini vacations. And by this, I mean itty bitty tourist attractions! Like Mini Mini Land in South Korea:

A tiny Niagara Falls feeds into a pond that houses a little Statue of Liberty and Golden Gate Bridge. And if that doesn't make you scratch your head, there are some full scale models including one of Spongebob Squarepants. Yes, my best friends are laughing right about now. This place really was made specifically for me. Here are some other little wonders of the world:

Mini Siam, Pattaya, Thailand

In case you missed anything throughout your travels in Thailand, this little tourist attraction created a "cheat sheet of the country's most famous buildings." You can also see Mini Europe, and a mini Sydney Opera House by Singapore's Merlion statue.

Bekonscot, Beaconsfield, England

This amazing little creation was constructed in the 1920's and 30's in the garden of Roland Callingham. He and the local school children came together to build this adorable mini village with trains, boats, and even a whale! And it's not just adorable, but it's educational too.

Mini Europe, Brussels, Belgium

This wonder of a mini amusement park houses 300 of Europe's most famous attractions. And some actually function! A minuscule Mt. Vesuvius erupts, a Little Ben (London's Big Ben) chimes, and mini mini gondolas navigate the canals of baby Venice.
