Have a Metallic Easter

DIY, Lifestyle, Photography March 26, 2016

   
So, my wedding was last week!  I can’t wait to post those pix but for now we’ll have to settle for the cutest holiday of the year…EASTER!!!!!  Easter is all about the sacrifices of our Lord and Savior or just an obsession with eggs, bunnies, and chocolate. Well, for me it’s all about creating something obnoxiously adorable…hence, metallic Easter eggs. 

Gather the usual suspects, metallic spray paints (Rose gold, silver, and gold) and some copper nail polish. I chose Penny Talks by Essie.     
Let’s start with our perfect little marble eggs. Get a cup and fill it with lukewarm water. This is important, if the water is too cold the nail polish will sink to the bottom of the cup rather than float on the top. We need the nail polish to float. 


Add your nail polish. I make a little squiggle so a pretty pattern emerges.    

 Here we go!!! 
   
Dip the egg and roll it around a little. That’s it…let it dry, it back, and feel like an artist! 


Take the rest of your eggs to a well ventalated area, nobody wants to loose brain cells, and spray away! I only did one layer per egg but had to allow each side to dry before flipping the egg and spraying the other side. 
  
This is what I ended up with and I’m very pleased. Gilded eggs for Easter!!!!!  

  
Yay!!!! 
     

 

Showered With Love 

Lifestyle, Wedding March 13, 2016

  

 
Weddings are NUTS!!!!!!  They are the most stressful, frustrating, fulfilling, and beautiful thing you will ever do. You shell out more money then you ever thought you would but you also get to bask in the love of your friends and family. Or you don’t and it’s a total drama fest…luckily that not my story.  My bridesmaids have been absolutely phenomenal and my family has been on board from day one. Well, they all put their cute little heads together for my garden themed bridal shower. Let’s also take time to thank my photographer Arayna Eison

  

Before everything kicked off I took some time to meditate on the porch.   I also spent time talking to some guests and putting on this silly face. I don’t know what I was thinking. 

  
I walked into absolute perfection. Tents, pianos, flowers, food, loved ones…what more could I ask for?        

    

They know how to make me happy…confections.   

Yummm red velvet.  

 

My mother made an amazing speech. 
  

My future hubbs made an appearance.   

If you can’t tell this is my mom, aunt, grandma and little sister. 

My cousin Trisha.  
  

And he any, my little princess, Kaylynn-flower girl.   

My other cousin Swaren.   

My girls Kim (Matron of Honor, Fevi, and Ashley). They made this whole event happen.   

Sasha my bridesmaid. She played a central role in the planning, her little artsy fingerprints were all over everything. 
 
Then there’s Stevie. He graciously overestimate us his yard and sang us a few songs. He’ll be the music director for the wedding. If you tune into our wedding on Pericope you’ll probably hear him.   
  

All in all it was another successful, touching, and beautiful day!
