I love luxury bath and beauty products. I started a blog that features products I love, the ones I think are ok and the ones that just did not make the cut. The blog is in the beginning stages, so if you are like me and love bath and beauty products, come folow me.

Hello and welcome.

I started designing back in 2008. I fell in love with invitation design while designing my own invitations for my Vow Renewal which was in 2010. I realized I had a talent for design and wanted to share it with other brides. If you are in need of chic, stylish, couture wedding invitations, please PM me or check out my blog for e-mail purposes. Thanks!!

On August 28, 2010, my DH and I renewed our vows on our 8th year wedding anniversary. It was a small intimate ceremony hosted in a private residence. Unfortunately, it wasn't exactly how we had planned. I planned for a few years, had many postponements and when the day arrived, it was bitter sweet.

There were 2 things that were nice. Our minister was amazing. He did an excellent job. Also, the food was delicious and long with our cake. The cake didn't turn out exactly how I had envisioned, but it was delicious.

So, the big day DH and I had been dreaming of, planning and spending tons of money on happened, but with many disappointments.

Below are 2 pics from the actual Vow Renewal and a pic of my D.I.Y silk box invitations.

I purchased this stunning gown way back in 2006. Yes, I said 2006. It arrived in 2007. I purchased this gown when it first hit the bridal salons. I was the very FIRST PW member to have this dress. I was also one of the FIRST brides to buy this dress period.

I was supposed to wear this dress for our Vow Renewal in August 2007, but an accident put the renewal on hold. The accident also caused me to gain lots of weight and therefore not be able to fit into the dress.We FINALLY renewed our vows in August 2010, but even though I had lost some weight, it still wasn't enough to fit into the dress.

NOW, I have FINALLY lost enough weight. It FITS!!!!!!! WOOOOOHOOOO!!!! I am so incredibly happy. DH and I will have  a couture editorial style photo shoot in Palm Springs sometime in either  2013 or 2014. I will finally get to wear MY dress!! I love it. I am a curvy girl and this dress was made for a curvy girl.

I have been waiting since 2007 to FINALLY wear thing stunning gown. It has been hanging in my closet for way too long. I am so incredibly excited to finally wear her.
