A Shower for Baby Girl

I think I’ve finally recovered from my baby shower this past Sunday… what a day!  LOTS of women, lots of beautiful details, and lots of love for our sweet babe.  The shower was held at my parent’s house (the same place we got married!) and my mom went all out with the girly cuteness.  She made all of the food and the majority of the decor herself.  Want to see some photos?

{the pom poms over the dessert bar were hand made by my mom!}

{guests left sweet advice and/or wishes for me and baby girl in this “bucket of blessings”}

{decorating the cupcakes was my biggest contribution… confession: this took FOREVER, haha}

{a girly shower wouldn’t be complete without nail polish party favors!}

{me and my sweet momma}

{in this photo, I’m wearing a special labor necklace created from beads brought by our guests… more on that in a future post!}

Now that the shower is over, it really feels like baby girl’s arrival is imminent!  I can’t believe I could give birth in as little as 6 weeks… yikes!!

(P.S. My maternity dress is from ASOS.)

Have a Spooky Weekend!

This weekend promises to be very festive! There are lots of gatherings and Travis and I are excited to rock our newly-finished Halloween costumes (I’ll show you guys next week). We still haven’t carved or decorated our pumpkins yet, either, so there’s lots to be done!

Let’s kick off the weekend with some fun links from around the web…

Sneak peek of Mad Men!

Awesome decorations for a Halloween party.

Would you rock spider lashes?

A friend of mine is making these for her sister’s baby shower… so cute!

Cool fall nails.

What a fun way to plant succulents!

Fun eyelash ideas for Halloween.

On my fall wish list: a collar necklace

Are you serious?  PECAN PIE BARS!!

Herringbone floors are my latest design obsession.

What are you up to this weekend?  Going to/hosting any Halloween parties?  What’s your costume this year?  Share in the comments!

Interior Inspiration: Bar Cart

There’s a little nook in our living room that Travis and I have decided to fill with a bar cart.  We bought a vintage metal cart at the Alameda Flea Market last year, which we used for dishes in our old apartment.  But now, we’re hoping to re-purpose it to add a little pizazz to our space.

I’ve been hunting around for bar cart inspiration, and here are a few photos I particularly loved…

Once we nail down the look, we’ll have to decide what to stock it with.  Travis and I love to entertain, but we don’t drink much on our own… any must-haves for the bar?

Do you have a bar in your home?  What do you stock it with?  Which of the inspirations above do you like best?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

This Girl Might Win “Cutest Bridesmaid Ever”

I’m doing hair and makeup for a sweet bride named Kristine next month, who is having her bridal shower this weekend.  One of her bridesmaids can’t be there in person, so she made Kristine this AH-mazing video!  You have to check it out…


Isn’t that hilarious/adorable/oh-so-loving?  This took some serious dedication!

I can’t wait to work with this lovely bride and meet her awesome bridesmaids in person :)

What do you think of this bridesmaid video?  How would you show your friend some love if you couldn’t make it to her shower?  Share in the comments!

Have a Summery Weekend!

I’m so excited that it’s OFFICIALLY summer!  Trav and I are kicking off the season right with a weekend full of multiple concerts and visits with friends :)  Plus, this weekend is pride in SF, so the energy of the city will be extra-awesome!  But first, let’s check out some fun posts from around the web…

The most beautiful baby shower of all time.

Hilarious photos of people on roller coasters.

A pretty updo for girls with bangs.

Love this summery dress!

Nautical nails.

Which dry shampoo is right for you?

How to make a cute, affordable cake stand.

I’m loving this bracelet from Forever 21!

This looks like the best dessert ever invented.

Gorgeous home tour.
