Dad and I are going for lunch today, and at this juncture, I'm craving Indian food. If things go my way for the rest of the day, Al and I will go see The Dark Knight Rises later this afternoon/evening! *crosses fingers* Let's hope for the best!!
On Sunday, Mom and I head out for Jamaica! Woot!! While I'm gone, I've scheduled one or two posts for you all to enjoy. I'll be back with my regular postings next Monday!
Have a good weekend!
P.S. Speaking of weekend, what will you be doing this weekend? Seeing The Dark Knight Rises? Going on vacation (and taking loads of pictures!)? Buying yourself a new swimsuit? Do tell!
I've always thought it'd be so fun to darting out of you reception and hop onto a tandem bike, jump into red convertible or zip off in a jet. But the thought seems incomplete without the addition of a fun dress! Here are a few of the dresses that will allow you to ditch your wedding gown and slip into something that's perfect to "getaway" in!

But I especially love caccoon-style hammocks, which can hang comfortably from trees over small bodies of water...scary, but cool!

zip off for our beach vacation, I wanted to pop on by and let you all know about the beauty routine that I plan on implementing en route to Jamaica. Even though my flight will only be about three hours, I figure it's still a good idea to act as though I'm preparing for a long-haul flight by so that I emerge from the flight with fresh-looking skin and well-moisturized hair.

Gah! I'm pooped! Mom and I have spent the last two days doing busy college stuff, and, I must say, I don't want to hear about, think about or speak about anything college related for the next few days. The good thing is, I'll be jetting off to Jamaica in a little over a week. Can't wait!

Even though I love dresses, I don't wear them that often. A couple of weeks ago, I picked up this H&M dress, featuring a bright graphic print. The colors are fresh, the cut is quite flattering and, despite the bold print, it's very versatile! It's such a fun spin on the typical summer day dress (especially considering it's perfect for wearing during the evening, as well!).

Along with your choosing hairstyle and makeup, deciding on a nail polish color is a key beauty element that plays into your big day. Whether you're a bride who wants to rock a little bling, or a bride who prefers simplicity, there's a hue out there that will give you the ideal bridal look that you want to achieve. Here are seven perfectly-viable shades, all by Essie, that are fit for a bride.

Tomorrow I'll be treating my hair to a delicious deep treatment (recipe coming soon!). I'll also be making my way over to the fabric store, where I'll hopefully buy a few yards of fabric so I can make some head wraps for the colder months!
What are you doing this weekend? Treating your hair to something special? Lying out in the sun? Going to a festival? Do tell!

I must say, I'm really impressed with Anthro's latest catalogue. There wasn't a single thing I didn't like! The shoes are absolutely spectacular, the jewelry is stunning, and exciting prints and bright splashes of color light up each page! The fact that the catalogue was shot in New Orleans only added to the enjoyment factor. Here are the (tons of) pieces that made it to the top of my wish list:
