It's that time of the year again, where you dress up and go crazy with chocolate and candies.

What's your Halloween costume this year? Mine is gonna be.... mardi gras girl :) I know, I know.. not the most original idea, but it's easy and it's an available resource to me.

Wow! As if Friday's not a good enough reason to celebrate and run after work to the nearest and bestest happy hour place, it turns out that this is my 100th post on this blog :) Yayy!

By the way, would you ever consider decorating your wedding cake the impressionist style? I think it's pretty cool...

To Sell or Not To Sell?

That is truly the question. When I first bought my wedding dress, I was so determined to sell it after the wedding is done. I mean, it's not like I'm ever going to wear the dress again, right? And if I were to pass it down to the next generation.... who's to say it'll still be in style, or whether it'll be the right size? So I was thinking, no big deal. It'll be easy to sell my dress since it's so beautiful. I didn't realize that I would have a hard time parting with it. Is that bad? It's crazy how attached I've become to this dress. So perhaps I won't be selling it in the end. We'll see :)

My flowers for the wedding was mostly soft coral pink / off white gerber daisies, hydrangea, and roses. Shortly after the wedding, we were gardening and we planted some coral daisies, almost exactly like the ones we had at our wedding.

With Mr. B's green thumbs tending the garden, we now have not one, but two gorgeous coral daisies blooming in the middle of Fall. I know it's not much, but I can't help smiling and thinking back about our wedding every time I look at them.

I'm finding out that I love Red on almost anything nowadays... red shoes.. red lipstick.. red nail polish... Wearing red lipstick somehow makes me feel retro and sophisticate right away. Plus, here's a secret... red lipstick makes your pearly whites look even whiter :P

Happy Thursday, everyone. One day closer to the weekend!! :)

I guess the dress that I liked from Reem Acra is too expensive, but what do you think about this dress from Cachet? Similar... and on sale :)

Reception Dress Hunting

I love, love, love shopping for wedding gown. Thank God my friend was generously patient enough to go with me while I tried on about 40 different dresses :) I think wedding dress shopping was the most fun part of the planning process...

Anyway, we're now happily married for 4 months. Can you believe it? 4 months already! It was a wonderful wedding, but the sad part was that many of our family couldn't make it since most of our family lives overseas. Well, the good part is that we will get a chance to celebrate our marriage again in January with the rest of the family, as my husband's parents are organizing a modest wedding-like dinner reception. It's kind of like a 2nd dinner reception, I guess, but I was told that the white poofy dress is not necessary.

Wonderful, right? I don't need to plan nor worry for anything else. I pretty much just need to show up and celebrate. The best thing about this is meeting Mr.B's family, and the next best thing that comes to mind is: more reason to go shopping for pretty dress. :) *ding ding ding ding!!

I'm thinking something like this would be nice:

So pretty... :) But I probably need something more modest and covered. Any suggestion?
