Has Pinterest Ruined Weddings?

I am back with another collab with WeddingWire.com! They asked me to pen an article about my wedding planning process and my first thought was expectations vs. reality of weddings on Pinterest. You can check out the post on WeddingWire here or read on.

I remember the joy of discovering Pinterest for the first time; all inspiration was right there at my fingertips. I spent hours scouring recipes, fashion, and, of course, weddings. Years later and finally engaged, I ceremoniously made my private wedding board public…a rite of passage for all newly-engaged pinners. I reveled in the immaculate blush-sequined perfection that was my board. Everything matched, everything was crème de la crème, and blissfully unbeknownst to me, everything was out of my price range.

Norwegian Escape Cruise Snaps

SHOP THE POST:


What a trip! The Norwegian Escape was my first-ever cruise and I am ruined for normal vacations forever now. My friends and family had me panicked over sea sickness, but while I was aware of the boat rocking throughout the week, it was more soothing than annoying (granted, after a few cocktails I was walking sideways down the halls). It may have something to do with the Norwegian Escape being the fifth-largest ship on the ocean and with a boat that size, there is so much to do on board!

What a weekend! This Saturday I headed to Southpark Mall for the Lookbook Live event. I have been looking forward to this day ever since Glamour Magazine asked me to be a part of it a couple months ago. Lookbook Live is an interactive event put on by the amazing folks at Glamour and GQ at 11 Simon malls across the country. At each stop, you can watch fashion shows featuring the hottest fall trends, get styled in the Lookbook Lounge, and participate in style challenges to win gift certificates. The best part is all of the looks are pulled straight out of the mall, so you can purchase them that day!

Emily and I spent the day in Glamour’s closet pulling looks and sharing our opinions on the trends. It was such a blast getting to meet everyone who came out, including the fellow bloggers! Be sure to check the schedule to see if the Lookbook Live tour is heading to a city near you!
