Focusing on Femininity

September 25th marks one year of being married to the man of my dreams!
He's strong, caring, loving and takes care of me with open arms.
He's such a gentle man and that's what attracts me to him most.
With that said, I am surprising him with photos from a boudoir session.
What husband wouldn't love this?
I'm still working out the kinks but the photographer I have chosen is one of my all time favorite's --- Kristin Vining Photography and the incredibly beautiful and talented Lindsey Regan Thorne's "be Pretty".  Their work is so clean and crisp and I have no doubt that they will capture the beauty in each shot and also make me feel absolutely ladylike. :-)

You can find these ladies at:

Boudoir is a french word meaning a woman's sitting room, usually elegantly furnished, to which she may retire to be alone.  Boudoir photography is a growing trend among women wanting sexy, beautiful and tasteful photos of themselves.  These photos are often used as a gift for someone special but can also be kept as a reminder of what they looked like at a certain time.

Fall Favorites

{Zara: Palazzo Trousers}

I can't believe that Fall is just right around the corner. With Summer being one of the hottest season's we've had in NC in a while, I have to say that I'm totally stoked when I walk through some of my favorite department stores and see the Fall clothing and accessories placed out as eye candy!!
I've already started my want list for the upcoming season. Here are just a few of my current favorites I've recently added to my closet.

 {Rachel Pally:  Wide Leg Trouser - As Seen on the Bachelorette}
{Foreverer 21:  Sequined Sweetheart Top}

{ASOS:  Oversized Tunic}
{American Apparel:  Large Leather Carry-all Pouch}

{Stella & Dot:  Pegasus Necklace}

{Pour La Victoire:  Larkin Penny Loafer Pumps}

{Michael Kors Oversized Two-Toned Chronograph Watch}

To top off some of my Fall Favorites, here's a nail color and lip color that will be a statement to my weekend wardrobe colors over the next few months! I have a slight addiction to shades of pinks!  :-)

What's in your Panty Drawer?

 The husband and I have our one year coming up in about two months and I've been on a lingerie kick!
Being that I am a sucker for pretty panties, I've come to live with the fact that my husband is just not that into sexy underwear and my drawer is filled with mostly comfy and a few sexy pieces.  I brought up the fact that he's never bought me any lingerie the other night over dinner.  He answered with exactly the answer I thought he would tell me.  I think you ladies know what I am talking about!!  Nothing is wrong with that but I find that most men or husbands that want to see their wives in sexy lingerie is pretty natural. Well, not for this husband of mine!  My husband just loves me in cute little white, low cut underwear and a white tank.  :-(
With that said, I've taken it upon myself to do the shopping and surprise him with what I think he would never buy and wear each little sexy piece the week of our one year anniversary.
Key Note:  Sweet Lingerie :-)  Nothing dirty and hard looking! 
We're still planning the location and I would imagine it will be NO WHERE LOCAL and SOMEWHERE WE'VE NEVER BEEN. 


Pink Lipstick & Champagne

{Estee Lauder:  Signature Hydra-lustre in Pink Champagne}

So this weekend marks the spot for my 33rd birthday party and this year my sister has it all planned out for me.  We're starting out with a nice dinner with ONLY appetizers. 
We've found that in the past, we've splurged on heavy meals leaving no room for partying in the end so we're thinking ahead and leaving the splurging for the end of the night.  That's where you'll find us all at our favorite local spot for cupcakes and cocktails: Crave!!

Before we start our night, my sis and I plan to get dolled up and enjoy some of my favorite pink champagne I picked up at the Fresh Market. 

I just love pink & gold combos so I'll bet you can't guess what colors I'll be sporting during my birthday evening?

Anchors Away!!

{Handmade necklace made a few years ago}

So, here I am, at the beach...

First off, my in-laws are here to beach-it with us and we're having a ball.
The weather is nice and we're spending most of our weekend fishing offshore, under the sunshine and anchored away in a nice cozy little spot inshore. 

Enjoy the weekend!!
