beach wedding inspiration board with warm sunset colors

If there is one thing (aside from rainbows) that we get a lot of out here in Hawaii it's beautiful, jaw-dropping sunsets.

The warm pinks, peaches, and soft yellows work perfectly for a beach wedding! Need some more sand between your toes?

unique rings from mociun

diamond and ruby engagement ring

When I ran across the diamond and red coral ring in this lineup (fourth down) floating around on a lonely corner of Pinterest I instantly fell in love. Diamonds and red coral are my two favorite stones (if you can call red coral that). On my recent trip to Fiji I literally spent half a day combing the sand for washed up bits of red coral. Red coral grows really deep down in the ocean and is nearly impossible to get unless it breaks off with age and ends up on a … [Continue reading]

why I hate the b-word

blogging humor

There is a funny thing that happens to me when asked by random people about what I do for a living. I lie. I lie because I hate telling people that I’m a blogger. Depending on my mood (or how many glasses of wine I’ve had) the lies can get rather extravagant. One time I told my airplane seat buddy (who I suspected was hitting on me despite my ring) that I study the hyperfine structure of the molybdenum atom. He didn’t talk to me anymore after that. When I do … [Continue reading]

moroccan oasis

orange desert wedding with air plant

One of the best details in this Moroccan styled wedding inspiration board is the air plant bouquet. I'd definitely call succulents the 'go to green' for 2012, but in 2013 it's going to be air plants. They are amazing! I love how structural and unique they are - plus, they take their water and nutrients from their leaves (roots are used for anchoring to things like rocks and trees) so they are perfect for weddings because you can remove the root system and place them … [Continue reading]
