Style Me Pretty (both the site and the book) have been a huge inspiration to me while starting my wedding planning. I’m constantly stumbling upon inspirational photos of dresses, flowers, tablescapes… you name it. But yesterday I stumbled upon a styled shoot that I loved every. single. photo of. It just works and you’ve got to check it out.
Happy Wedding Wednesday!
Okay guys, it’s the 20th. If the world ends tomorrow I’m going to be pretty upset about not fitting that skydiving trip in. Anyway, I figured we should discuss what we should be wearing if the world does end. I’m not sure what exactly is supposed to happen, but hopefully we will know a couple of minutes in advance so I can do a quick change (because that’s what really matters, huh).
PS: If the world actually ends I’m glad no one will have access to this post of me poking fun at the world ending.
You’ve all heard about my wedding plans and I am so excited to get to all of the little details. Like how to incorporate glitter and gold into my wedding, of course. I can’t stop pinning photos of gold cakes, it’s kind of becoming an obsession. Can we talk about how I’m going to have to have ten cakes to make sure I cover all my bases?
Over the weekend Andrew and I picked up our Christmas tree! I love Christmas so much and putting on our santa hats and decorating is something I really cherish. I’m very lucky to get the chance to do that every Christmas for the rest of my life! Now it’s time to work on the rest of the apartment. All the candles will be switching to Christmas scents, stockings will be hung, presents will be wrapped (in metallic wrapping paper and twine), flowers will be red, and hot cocoa will be made on a daily basis. Tis the season!
Ah Paris Fashion Week, you slay me. As if Paris wasn’t magical enough on its own, just add some of the most fashionable people from around the world and you’ve got an event I want to be a part of. Here are some of my favorite street style photos from Paris Fashion Week, there’s some serious awesome happening here.
I’ve been blown away by all of the print in this years Spring 2013 collections so far. There are definitely stand out designers that pushed the limits and made some gorgeous pieces that will surely be on all of our must have lists. Maybe it’s the cutie son of hers or that she made this “Call Me Maybe” video, but Rebecca Minkoff really can do no wrong in my eyes. Spring 2013 obviously didn’t disappoint. I love the fresh, easy silhouettes paired with a more complex pattern throughout. This first look is killer.

I can’t believe how long I’ve been gone. Despite my last very quick post, I’ve been MIA since the beginning of August. Market week just ended and with two weeks with clients and one week of prep I didn’t have many nights that work ended before 10. A lot went on in the past few weeks though. I had the opportunity to take my clients to a few great places including Balthazar, Mercer Kitchen, SoHo Park, 230 Fifth, and of course Magnolia Bakery. Here are some instagram (@glitterandgoldblog) photos of the last couple of weeks.
Notice the new computer? Yesterday I was able to get to the store before catching the train back to Hoboken and grab the computer I’ve had my eye on for a while now. I can’t wait to actually blog on a real computer again. Using my iPad was getting a little bit crazy. Hope to see you guys a lot more in the very near future!
After seeing my initial inspiration post, and another one, and then my inspiration boards you guys all already know what the plan was for our new apartment. Maybe it’s because I prepared you guys for a month and a half but I feel obligated to share photos (or maybe I just really want to). Typically I’m a perfectionist that wouldn’t allow photos until I actually felt like something was 100% finished. But, I love this living room! It’s far from finished and even farther from perfect, but it came together nicely and it was nice to relax here last night after the initial moving day stress was over. Granted, the other rooms are even less finished. Our bed is on the floor, we are using boxes as night stands, and nothing is where it should be. BUT we have each other, and a super cute couch that I can’t get over. Things will slowly start coming together and it’s going to be a really exciting time for us. I’m sure to be posting more photos on instagram soon, so you should follow me @glitterandgoldblog.
Happy Friday! Our new apartment is the only thing that has been on my mind lately. It’s only a week until move in! I stumbled upon Plan Your Room and have been building our plan-o-gram ever since. It’s such a great resource and allows you to see exactly how your furniture, or potential furniture, will fit in your room. Since building the plan and buying quite a bit of furniture and accessories, I started making these inspiration boards for each room. A little inspiration can go a long way when moving! You’ve already seen my living room inspiration here and here, so now it’s time to focus on the bedroom and bathroom.
