Videography at our wedding

Emily + Meeko ~ Tiburon, CA ~ 10.3.09 from Rain Studios on Vimeo.

Thanks to a mutual friend of Emily's and mine, I found Rain Studios who does amazing Videography work. I've looked at several other Videographers and Rain Studios trumps them all (in my opinion). We are so excited to have booked them for our wedding!!

Runway To Real Way Spring 2010 Fashion: Feathers

Louis Vuitton
Roksanda Ilincic
Jason Wu

To Real Way...

Let me first say that this is my least favorite Spring 2010 trend. I found several fashionable dresses with feather details during my search for this post, but most of them used Ostrich or Turkey feathers, which I am adamantly against. I do NOT support the use of animal parts used for clothing, so I chose not to post those items on my blog.

Homemade Lip Scrub

After searching high and low for a good lip exfoliant and being astounded at the prices for them (average is $25), I figured I would do some research and make my own. Nothing is more annoying than putting on lipstick or gloss and having extra, dry skin on your lips that is extremely noticeable once lipstick/gloss is applied.
Here's my DIY method for making lip scrub:
You'll need:
-Brown sugar and white granulated sugar: sugar is abrasive and gets the job done at removing dead skin.
-Honey: Honey has anti-bacterial properties, it can heal minor wounds/cuts on the skin and it's non-allergenic.
-Olive Oil: Moisturizing, it protects and soothes the skin. It will not clog the pores around your mouth.
-A small container that closes all the way. I went to the Container Store and bought a pill box for $0.99.
-Measuring spoons
-Small bowl for mixing ingredients

How To:
-Measure 1/2 teaspoon for each ingredient and stir. Once it's evenly mixed, pour into your container/pill box.
That's it!

Let me know if any of you try this! I love that it's so tasty and doesn't taste chemical-y at all.
