Jane Austen Inspired Wedding Board

I was inspired not too long ago by AdoreMe.com to create a wedding mood board based on their Spring/Summer 2015 collection of lingerie. They sent me some great photos of their new options and I picked the one which inspired me the most. The Spring Blush lingerie set (above) is priced at $24.95 AND your first set includes Free Shipping.

The more I looked at the Spring Blush lingerie set and it’s lacy, Old-world details, the more I imagined an elegant, Jane Austen inspired affair. Classic, romantic details among the charms of the English countryside. Can you imagine? You can’t? Take a look at the mood board I created below and let it inspire you.

Pinterest of Interest – Traveling Momma Edition

Our first big family trip is on the horizon. Four plane rides, a week in a far away city and tons of family to visit…I’ve been mentally packing for weeks. We have the travel stroller, the diapers, the formula, her clothes, shoes, hats and coats in case it’s cold, packed food in case we’re trapped on the plane for days and everything else you can possibly imagine EXCEPT … for Mommy’s clothes.


We tend to forget ourselves. A funny thing considering we were at one point the center of our own universes for a time.

But not only am I packing for the first trip I’ve been able to take in years (due to pregnancy and baby) but it’s also my first autumn trip in ages! FALL clothes, baby!

Check out my favorite fall looks for the traveling Momma.

Pinterest of Interest – Trending Bridal Styling

Weddings on the brain. My Pinterest of Interest list today is all about trending Bridal hair styles for your nuptials (or friends nuptials or ideas you wish you had for your past nuptials…whatever).

All the links have been sniffed out by me. The last is kind of a classic for Pinterest but I had to include it since it’s exactly how I wore my hair for our wedding. As shown below by my own wedding nostalgia.

Preview of “Bridal Hair Looks”

1.Floral crowns are all the rage. But not like tripping acid, hippy wedding outside Woodstock floral crowns. Romantic and delicate crowns. Think Jane Austen in the English Countryside. Love it.

2.This Tumblr image is so amazing I had to atleast include it for makeup and hair inspiration. It’s classic and beautiful. I’ve always been an advocate of non-trendy looks for a wedding. After all, how many of our parents have looked back at the hot pink 80’s bridesmaid dresses and wanted to kill themselves?

3. Brides.com Floral Crow – Again floral crowns are in. I love this one because of the overall style of the low messy bun and vintage gown. If you can pull this off, go for it.

4. 20’s style is hitting big with the release of Gatsby. This headpiece may be a little over the top but it’s a wedding. Go big or go home.

5. More vintage hair. This one is so retro and hot that I just about swooned when I saw it. Cute, cutey, cute, cute.

6. Maskcara.com Hair Tutorial for Victoria Secret curls– Literally exactly how I wore my hair and LOVED it. I did not have this super easy tutorial at the time and paid my hair lady to work her magic. But it’s the same premise. I found this site a few months ago and now stalk the blogger.


Enjoy ladies. I’m all about the hair today.
