Photo Book Sale

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

blurb-book-idea-promo-code

I will be the first to admit that planning beyond tomorrow just seems impossible these days. I have friends who are making plans for the Christmas holidays while I am still trying to enjoy the end of summer. And even though I don’t have a clue where my family is headed for Thanksgiving – I do know that Blurb has a ‘Thank You’ Sale going on right now. It is time to download your favorite summer pictures from your cell phone and create some fun photo books to give to your favorite family and friends as a little special thank you gift this holiday. Add a few special words including a special memory or a simple note of thanks to complete your custom photo book. Another fun idea would be to collect a bunch of your family’s favorite Thanksgiving recipes and include a few crazy pictures of your cousins and grandparents and create a keepsake everyone will treasure for generations to come. Make your books (hard copy or electronic) this weekend so you can take advantage of this special Thank You promotion and you can cross one more thing off of your to-do list. Enjoy 15% OFF your order now through Monday, September 9th, 2013.

Oh wait – I almost forgot – the promo code you will want to enter is TAKE15. Let me know what kind of book you end up making!

Celebrity Jewelry

Did you get a chance to watch the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes? Are you as excited as I am for the Academy Awards? My favorite thing about all of these awards shows is the spectacular celebrity jewelry. It is hard to see the fabulous shoes that are hidden under the ball gowns (which is such a major bummer) but the sparkling diamonds and precious stones worn by all of our favorite stars always seem to be the hit of the red carpet. In fact, I think we all deserve a little red carpet bling of our own…

I was recently introduced to Leon’s of Beverly Hills and they have lots of amazing jewelry pieces to choose from. World-renowned jewelry expert Leon Haytayan has been an innovator in jewelry design and has been creating unique treasures since 1970. Leon personally hand crafts every piece of jewelry he sells so that each one is like a unique work of art. A number of celebrities have worn his pieces and so can we.

Now getting back to the red carpet… I love the bold and beautiful celebrity rings that so many of the actresses are wearing. I think a sparkly statement ring can really add so much to a look. It is hard to tell on television, but the rings those women are wearing on their fingers are absolutely exquisite. I know most people look at the necklaces or the chandelier earrings, but keep an eye out for gorgeous rings adorning the manicured fingers of your favorite celebrities this awards season. Wouldn’t you love to wear one of these sparklers while you are on the couch watching the Academy Awards this year….You deserve it!

In a few short months my husband and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and it is fun to think back to our wedding and all of the choices I made (yes – I made them all – he got plan the honeymoon). Of course I thought it was perfect and looking back there is very little I would change. I loved my dress, I loved my red Louis Vuitton shoes and I loved that so many of my friends were able to join us in Montecito for a fabulous party. Thank you mom and dad!!

With summer wedding planning in high gear right now, there are many brides to be who are in the process of trying to envision their perfect wedding celebration. Sometimes is starts with a color, maybe it is a favorite flower, or maybe the location. In my case, my shoes (surprise, surprise!) were the centerpiece of my planning and set the tone for everything.

You get ideas for decorations and table settings and of course stationery too. Even if you aren’t planning a wedding – they are full of creative ideas for any party really. And I have also gotten great ideas for color combinations for my home too. Love them!

And guess what – you can make your own inspiration board on Minted too. Hop on over to Minted and go take a quick peek. I promise, you won’t be disappointed…

Layla Grace is a fabulous place to shop for holiday gifts and also happens to be a great place to pick up little treasures for yourself.
