CBD Bath Bomb DIY

If you’ve been following along for any period of time, you’d know I’m a HUGE fan of a good bubble bath. It’s a weekly ritual… sometimes multiple times a week, if I’m being honest. There is just something so wonderful about taking 45 minutes in the dark, soaking in hot water, soft music playing, epsom salts, some essential oils, and just shutting off. No phones, no emails, no proposals, just rest and relaxation.

A few months ago, I got diagnosed with PCOS and I’ve been suffering from insanely painful cramps. More intense than anything I’ve ever experienced before. Nothing helped. I would wake up in a hot sweat at 2am with the worst pain in my lower abdomen and stressed that I couldn’t fall back asleep. The only thing that helped was a warm bath. One day, my husband felt so bad, he went out and bought me some cbd + thc bath bombs to help alleviate the pain and let me tell you – THEY WORkED MIRACLES. What I loved most about them, was it allowed me to not take any aspirin, tylenol, anything like that. I always get nervous if I’m taking too many “pain relievers” you know? Then, it got me thinking… these things are are $15 a piece… I could just make my own! You may remember my original bath bomb tutorial here… so I know how to make them already – I just needed to add the CBD! And that’s how this tutorial for you all began!

Erin & Alan’s Romantic Winter Wedding

Erin & Alan are the CUTEST. Like the cutest. I met them through another incredible couple that I had the honor of planning their wedding YEARS ago.

They were planning for their end of winter/early spring wedding and needed the perfect spot to fit their budget and their ideal look and feel. They wanted an outdoor garden setting, and we just knew Hidden Oaks would be a great fit! Their palette was marsala and blush with touches of gold throughout. The perfect fit for a backdrop of lush green and wood accents that the venue provided. We put together a dream team of vendors to execute the day flawlessly and not to mentioned captured GORGEOUSLY by Wanderlust Creatives, who basically just blew my mind when they sent back this gallery. Like woah!

Honestly, one of my favorite details is Alan’s mauve suit. Did you hear that MAUVE suit! He rocked it so well, and it’s just so fun to see grooms get creative with their wardrobe, amiright?! Scroll down to see all the gorgeous images of this beautiful day! Thank you Erin & Alan for being SUCH incredible clients – your wedding was definitely one for the memory books!

Monica & Ben’s Classic Malibu Wedding

Monica & Ben’s wedding last year was truly magical. They lived on the east coast. I live in LA. And their wedding was set to be up high overlooking the Malibu coast. Truly a bi-coastal wedding planning experience and I loved every minute working with them. Monica definitely had a vision and needed us to simply keep her organized and run the actual day. So all these pretty details are all straight from Monica’s head! LOVE the classic elegant look. Timeless is the best word that comes to mind.

Gemstone Soap DIY

Crystals and gemstones are ALL the rage right now haha… don’t get me wrong – I have a rose quartz next to my sage on my makeup shelf lol. And being born in February… I have amethyst everything. Similarly, I’ve been a fan of making soaps for literally years. See posts HERE & HERE for more fun examples and tutorials. Anyways, being a lover of making soaps… I’m always thinking of fun new ways to make them and I got inspired by all the quartz and natural gemstones that are everywhere. I saw some pretty stones on display in a bathroom on some interior design blog and the stone literally looked like it COULD have been soap… and I got super excited… but turned out it was just a rose quartz hahaha but that got me thinking… how CUTE would it be to have a gemstone style soap next to your bathroom sink?! Long story long… that’s how you all got his tutorial – your welcome.
