Update and a giveaway!

Hi loves! My little blogging break was great, thank you all for your well wishes. I think along with being sick, I was just working myself too hard. It seems that this whole working full time while being a part time wedding photographer and fashion blogger takes quite a bit out of me! I think I'm back in shape though and am glad to be back!

To recap my four days of bloggy break I...
  • Painted my nails blue, which is a color I haven't worn since 8th grade. Color is China Glaze Sky High-Top.

(alllacqueredup.com)
  • Went to the doctor to discover that she probably thinks I'm a hypochondriac as we were reviewing my history and I've come to see her almost every other month this year. (It has not been a good health year for me).
  • I discovered how handy the new drag and drop label feature on gmail is. I heart it! I have 3 email accounts that I fwd to my gmail so I need organization and I love just being able to drag over my labels. Read here on how to use gmail labels.
  • Had a fabulous photo shoot with our friends and their dogs.
  • Booked more weddings for style.ish (yay!)
  • Behind the scenes stuff for my blog revamp (changes are coming soon!)
  • Got some rest, enjoyed the sun, took long walks with my husband and our doggies
  • And the best part? Bought a pair of Louboutins on SALE at Barney's! They are sooo pretty, I can't wait to show you all.
Now for some fun! I am so so excited about this giveaway! The beautiful Fabiana from The Style Rules contacted me about doing a giveaway of one of her necklaces and of course I had to say yes! She wears them all the time on her outfit posts and I just love them. I was excited when she started selling them at her Etsy store. Fabiana is a fashion PR girl turned law student but loves being creative, especially making jewelry. If you aren't already a reader, you gotta go check out her blog. She has such a fun casual, cool style that makes me want to move to LA!

  58. A girl who doesn't have a favorite color, recently I've been buying blue -- 2 blue dresses from Gilt to be exact. One is a Tracy Reece lace chiffon and the other is a Badgley Mischka cocktail halter. I'm looking to wearing them during our 5 year anni- mini-vacay. Needless to say, my outfit will be complete if I win this beautiful blue agate necklace. :)
