I’m obsessed…with the clutch. I want to have one with me at all times. I want to give them as gifts…I want to receive them as a gift…

This little mama would be a perfect gift for all bridesmaids or for the destination bride. It’s the perfect size for your lip gloss, compact as well as your breath mints! Can’t forget the breath mints ladies 😉

With the Party Open House, California Dreamin’ on the brain…it only made sense that we would love these cute little lip balm party favors for summer! These yummy  flavored balms would be fun set up in the bathroom(s) for your guests to take as needed or placed at each table setting.

Feature Friday :: Twirl Boutique in Chandler April 16, 2010

I’m in two weddings this year which is just incredibly exciting to me. It’s truly like waiting for a drumroll to end as we all patiently wait for the bride to reveal “our” wedding day apparel. The dresses below have me swooning and even more elated to participate in these upcoming celebrations!

The days of seafoam green have been out however we’ve still managed to see the less than desirable apparel for bridesmaids. These beauties from Jim Hjeilm Occasions are definitely desirable and trendsetting!

Never has being a bridesmaid been so appealing!

Honestly…loving the tulle on this little black number!

You can find these silky lovlies at Twirl Boutique in Chandler and Scottsdale.  The ladies at Twirl are amazing! As a bridesmaid you will get THE royal treatment! It doesn’t hurt that you feel like you’re a modern day princess in their totally chic boutiques!
