If you think color can’t also be ~moody~ then you need to see this stunning wedding. (Also, their ceremony backdrop included a COUCH—it’s amazing!) Okay, and speaking of color, sometimes you just need to decide that a yellow floral wedding dress is the only option. And you know what goes with a rad dress—or any dress, really? A bridal headband. Get on this trend ASAP! We were also all about garages this week – Jen shared her garage makeover and this wedding took place in a parking garage!

From Britt:

Cooking for 2 or 20? This pretty pretty cookbook has inspired me to plan ALL the dinner parties. The recipes are simple (and insta-worthy) but delicious and there are full menus to help you piece together the perfect in-season meal.

If you’re looking for a unique gift, you’ve got to send a Cameo—it’s so worth it. You can order personalized videos from celebrities, personalities, athletes, and more. We sent my Grease-loving father-in-law a birthday message from the one and only Frenchie and it was priceless.

When was the last time you organized your inbox? I took pieces of this advice at the start of the year and spent some time making my email work better for me. It’s genuinely made my life easier.

From Diana:

Last weekend my boyfriend and I headed to Denver and we had the best time! One of the highlights of the trip was definitely a last-minute dinner at Spuntino. The food was delicious, but the service made the experience truly excellent.

I’ve been super into coffee lately and learning to make café experiences at home. Torani Vanilla Syrup is making my mornings delicious, but these syrup pumps are the true secret weapon to feeling like a barista!

From Sheena:

As someone who spends a TON of her time outdoors, there’s nothing better than home decor that brings the outdoors in. These stunning digital download tree sketches are in my cart now, and I can’t wait to get them printed and framed!

Been on a homemade pizza kick lately, and this arugula pesto recipe has been on rotation A LOT lately. Such fresh flavor.

From Katie:

I’m trying out a new shampoo and have heard RAVE reviews about Pureology so I grabbed their Strength Cure. Will report back!

And because I needed to add $1 for free shipping, I also grabbed this ColourPop Lippie Stix in Cami (hoping for a pretty nude lip shade!)

Also, if you are a female millennial, this TikTok about the early 2000’s will take you back!

Have a great weekend!
