Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: My Sephora F&F haul arrived yesterday – I picked up a Sephora + Pantone eyeliner set, Sephora gloss set, philosophy set, a few Illamasqua nail varnishes and Stranger Intense Lipgloss.
  • Weekend plans:  I’m crossing fingers that I can get a good night’s sleep!  Farmer’s market, brunch, and wash Mellan (or Smellan as we’re calling him right now).
  • Do you like spicy food?:  I do! I wouldn’t say that I want anything super, super spicy–I won’t be winning any hot pepper eating contests any time soon–but I like some kick.

This week’s Mellan video…


It’s like he know’s I’m recording him, so he acts like a model citizen.

Stay classy, Mellan.

Wedding photos for those interested ahead!


All photos  are courtesy of the very talented Rhee Bevere Photographywhich is a photography studio that specializes in candid photography.  I have an exceptionally camera-shy husband, you know!  Rhee and Kevin made a great tag-team and managed to grab some amazing shots throughout the ceremony.  If you are looking for a Bay Area photographer who captures moments, not just poses, I highly recommend them!  I was also incredibly impressed by the amazing shops and artists I found on Etsy to help me add personalized details.  Every single shop I worked with was excellent in customer service, accommodating my requests, and delivering early.
