{bride blogger nicole} couple’s shower

This past weekend was mine and Ryan’s couple’s shower at my aunt and uncle’s house.  Luckily we had gorgeous weather for it!  We ate, played a game to see how well Ryan and I know each other (we did great!), opened presents, and then hung out and played some yard games all afternoon.  We had such a great time!  We got a couple of really nice firepits, some wine and an electric corkscrew, and then a good sized gift card to the Home Depot that some of the couples went in on!  It was such a fun day!  Now this weekend we have our bachelor and bachelorette parties!  We really can’t wait for the weekend!  🙂

{things we love} celebrity inspiration

Julia Roberts is known for her forever glow, her sparkling eyes and her pretty pout…what isn’t there to love? To get this fresh look try a powder pink eyeshadow with an denim blue highlight in the crease. Rim eyes with a dark liner, coat lashes with a volumizing mascara and highlight the corner of your eye with the same pink shadow. Dust on a shimmering blush and finish the look with a barely there pink lipstick with a hint of shimmer.

{inspiration board} green for all seasons

If you love a true green wedding but want to avoid the bright contrast try using soft, natural colors. We love the cool tones of this inspiration board that can be used in all seasons. Try using different flowers and leaves to create each season’s look.
