Shaping up for Summer

As Summer approaches, I’ve decided to get back on the mani pedi bandwagon. I hate to admit it, but since I got married last summer I’ve kinda let myself go a little. In the months leading up to the wedding I was getting a mani pedi every two weeks, had a stock pile of self-tanner and was in the best shape of my life (yoga twice a day, no big deal). After the wedding though, it was nice to let those things go for awhile. Winter came and the Uggs came back out, my skin went back to pasty white, my nails became a nightmare and now I’m lucky if I do Yoga 4 times a week. Pretty sure this is not what my husband signed up for. JK, he loves me unconditionally…but I’m pretty sure he would burn my Uggs if he thought he could get away with it.

What brought me back to my old primping ways? On Marathon Monday I got a sunburn (oh hey summer, you kinda snuck up on me there) that is now turning into a pretty killer tan. The sight of some color on my usually pale skin brought back fond memories of “pre-wedding Lindsay”. So, I decided to take that one step further, and I picked up the phone and called Mini Luxe on Newbury Street. I have 4 words for you: gel manicures for life! They are so worth the extra money! No chippage for 2 weeks? I’m sold! Plus, it’s SO cute in there! I was chatting with my lovely manicurist and of course Flair came up. She told me that they work with bridal parties all the time. You and your lovely ladies can head there all together and get mani pedis in an uber relaxing environment, with tons of polish colors to match whatever color palette you’re working with. Speaking of, are you making your bridesmaids’ nails match each other/ match the color scheme of the wedding? I did, and occasionally I feel badly and think that maybe that was a little bridezilla-ish…but then I remember how cute they looked with their matching hot pink nails and I get over it!

Bachelorette/Shower Party Planning Tips!

found on http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/girls?before=1311567126

Bridesmaids, this blog is for especially for you! Brides, we’re going to try and say this nicely: please go away. We love you but we’ve got some surprises to plan for you so TTFN!

OK, now that we’ve gotten rid of our lovely brides, we can get to planning their showers and bachelorette parties! Have you started the process yet? It can be difficult to do, especially when the bridesmaids are all over the country. We’ve all been on one of those never ending email chains where nothing really gets accomplished.

So annoying! Have no fear, LastBash is here! It’s a new social networking type site where you can all get together and bounce around party ideas. Once you choose your location, LastBash also can provide recommendations on local hotels, restaurants and more. Plus, once you get the guest list finalized everyone can head to LastBash to RSVP and get more info on the event. This is seriously one of those ideas we wish we had thought of, it’s genius! Check them out and kiss your party planning woes good bye! Also, be sure to clue your bride in about the site after the fact (we don’t want her peeking at any potential surprises!), so she can use it to plan an epic bash for you one day!

 

Happy planning and plotting!

XOXO
