Treat Yo’self!

Sure, it’s a Parks and Rec reference, but it was also a saying that my friend Tori said to me in college all of the time. Her and I worked very closely together and saw each other almost on a daily basis. Every time I put in a few extra hours or became extra stressed – she never made me feel bad for that glass of beer, that dessert that I bought for myself to indulge in, or anytime I did something when I should’ve been doing my homework or actual work. She would say to me in a very direct way, “Treat yo’self gurl!” Every now and then, I still think of her saying that to me when the times are tough and as always, I follow her advice accordingly.

One of my favorite ways to unwind is with a bath! When I was younger, I found these to be really inefficient because I always thought showers were so much faster. I think part of that was because my parents had an amazing shower with big glass panels (like those on GlassShowerDirect.com) and I used to spend hours in there, so I never chose a bath. That meant I never truly learnt to enjoy a bath, but there’s something really relaxing about sinking into one and lighting a candle. I spoiled myself awhile back by trying a bath bomb and today because it was Black Friday, I did myself a solid by buying this one above from Lush. $7 bath bombs on a monthly basis are within my budget constraints, right? If not, we’ll make sure they are.

Photo of the Day

My heart goes out to Mike Brown’s family this evening and to all those affected by Ferguson. The news is extremely disappointing and I think it’s a decision that many people, like myself, just don’t understand. Brown’s family released a statement below:

I know everyone in Seattle is protesting right now, but please stay safe.

Song of the Day

Ariana Grande – Santa Tell Me

Is it Christmas yet? I actually am not that kind of person that loves listening to Christmas songs around this season, but we do love us some Ariana Grande.

AMA’s 2014 Red Carpet

Kendall Jenner absolutely nailed in Yigal Azrouel on the red carpet last night! The award show wasn’t exactly for her industry or anything like that, but she did present alongside her sisters Khloe and Kylie and she looked the best out of all three!

Wedding Mondays

There once was a time when we would just have a queue of videos to use for Wedding Mondays and I would be overly excited to be sharing another video with everyone every single week. The feelings haven’t changed. I still love the series and what we’re trying to do every week – but I’ll be honest, the wedding videos aren’t coming as often as they should be or as often as I used to promise. In watching so many of these, there’s a part of me that has become highly critical of what I’m seeing, but it’s important for me to remind myself and even all of you that these videos mean so much more than what we’re seeing. A wedding video captures just a small part of a couple’s relationship and leaves out a couple’s love that we don’t see beyond that video. So yes, we’ve watched quite a few tragic videos in our day, but and even though this is obvious and may not be worth mentioning – every couple’s story is the most beautiful part about a wedding day. Not a video.

With that, I’m happy to share a video that I discovered actually a while back – two months back actually! Becky and Mark are merging two cultures with their wedding day. Their rooftop wedding is absolutly gorgeous and one that I’m sure many people can only dream of. I love how this video provides a background on celebrating their two cultures and bringing them together as one. They did a really great job with this one!
