Mini Banana Cream Pie Recipes

I hate to cook. And I LOVE to bake. The problem is, I can’t do it all the time or else I’d stuff my face with sweet treats all day long. So I try to bake when I know people are coming over or for a fun dinner party. I just love banana cream pie. Like, it’s my all time fav. But pies like that don’t look very pretty when they are sliced up. And if you think like me, and you’re planning a dinner party with friends – you want every last detail to look pretty. Am I right?!

So, I stumbled upon this adorable recipe for mini banana cream pies (perfect for a little get together!) And I feel like people are more down to try a bite sized treat that opt for a whole slice of pie – perfect! The recipe I found was from GirlVsDough.com and it was perfect for me – super simple. But I made a few adjustments of my own and I’m in love with the final result. (image below via girlvsdough.com)

Sweet Stop Motion Engagement Shoot : Julie & Josh

Julie and Josh are seriously the sweetest people… and couple. They just adore each other and I just love that! For their engagement – we teamed up with Stephanie Collins Photography to create the engagement announce of a lifetime! A stop-motion video! These things are SO COOL people. Like, probably my new all time favorite. I’ve styled many things: weddings, events, dinner parties, maternity shoots, editorial spreads – you name it. I’ve never worked on a stop motion video and let me tell you – it is a lot of work! I could take hours to shoot something that will only be 15 seconds on film – which is crazy to me haha – but it was such a rewarding experience and a huge shoutout to Stephanie for putting everything together so flawlessly!

California Fall Wedding (My Best friends Wedding!)

california-fall-wedding-2

Last Fall was such a special time for me. Mainly because I got to attend a wedding (that never happens!) but MOSTLY because the wedding I got to attend was my best friends. I’ve known Lauren since I was 15 years old. We were there for each other for our tennis matches (we were kick ass doubles partners) first boyfriends, chemistry tests, slumber parties, thousands of hours of SVU marathons while pounding bags of cherries =) And last November, I got to see my best friend marry the man of her dreams and it was amazing. And lucky for you, her wedding was captured by the talented Shannen Natasha and was featured on 100 Layer Cake a couple days ago – so I get to share it with YOU! Everything about this wedding was so gorgeous – I’ll let the photos just speak for themselves =)

Return Address Tape DIY

While perusing Pinterst a couple months ago, I stumbled upon this awesome photo of a whole role of return address masking tape and just about squealed out loud in my office =) So cool, right?! Especially for mailing out all my business related thank yous, rsvps, etc. So I started to do some research on how much it would cost to get something like that made for my brand. Turns out, not only is it hard to find, but it can get quite expensive. Oh blast.

So, then when I saw another post on Pinterest how one person took the original return tape roll concept, but made it a little more DIY than just manufactured and I was so excited. I though to myself, now I could TOTALLY do that! Mixed with… man, I wish I would have thought of that!

Wearing Glasses on Your Wedding Day

Rowley7

It’s not something you usually see gracing the pages on all the popular wedding blogs. A bride walking down the aisle rocking her specs. But so many people wearing their glasses on a day to day basis. religiously, even. For some, their glasses are their style trademark. So why then, do we NEVER see glasses on a wedding day? I believe that our society’s and communities have shaped a “bridal look” that is fresh faced and spectacle free =) But then we preach about making your day YOU and opting with hair and makeup vendors that don’t try and make you look different, but comfortable and confident in your own skin. Kinda a contradiction if you ask me. All of this occurred to me when I stumbled across Rowley Eyewear. Some of their looks just screamed bridal to me.. and then it dawned on me – why don’t I EVER see brides in killer frames like these? Probably because NO ONE is doing it! Lightbulb!
