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.


  • 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!


She is giving away this gorgeous 24K Blue Druzy Agate Necklace. Here’s her description:
This is a beautiful Drusy Agate necklace set in 24K gold in a gorgeous shade of blue, on a simple gold-filled chain. It has a few tiny speckles adding character to a stunning piece. Drusies are totally in right now, being featured everywhere from Vogue to Elle. This stone is very rare and changes color when under different light – everything from a baby blue to a sea blue. The back also has a a super unique pattern should you want to wear it both ways!
Chain is 22 inches long and opens and closes with a lobster clasp.

    ooo if you love blue nail polish… you have to try color Aqua Baby from China Glaze. perfect shade for the summer! oh and OPI's Do You Liliac It?… it's probably more of a spring-y color (it's a light lavender color) but it's sooooo pretty!

    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. 🙂
