Spring Cleaning

Posted in Personal with tags on March 30, 2010 by BEA'sBrideGuide

Who said spring cleaning had to involve scrubbing your house? This year I’m planning a little spring cleaning of my life, read: organizing, opening bills, and finally committing to a healthier lifestyle.  The blog is still going to be dedicated to my clothing obsession so I tackled closet organization first.  Why the housing gods haven’t blessed me with a walk-in closet I’m not sure. Don’t let the sparseness of the closet fool you. I’m hiding my cocktail dresses in a spare bedroom and the majority of my favorite clothes cycle from dirty clothes hamper-dry cleaner-on me too quickly to even make it to the closet.

Look at those beautifully folded cardigans! Let’s hope everything stays looking this way.  Any tips for organizing a small closet?


Gone Gardening

Posted in Fashion with tags on March 26, 2010 by BEA'sBrideGuide

As promised the posts are finally resuming! Today I finally got myself out of the house and to H&M to check out my beloved Garden Collection. While the signature dress (think red with rosettes) wasn’t available in Pittsburgh (yet another reason for me to not like this city) there were plenty of other pieces from the collection.  HOWEVER, and this is a big however, I wasn’t really a fan.  I tried on every piece to meet with heartbreaking results.  Most of the tunics were just too oversized and the baby doll dresses reminded me of my crazy college room mate’s style and were therefore out on principal.  I did walk away with one purchase, some great safari inspired shorts that I can’t wait to wear weather permitting.

Why couldn’t this rosette jacket be available here?! Has anyone seen it in person? I’d really love to hear about the quality or see pictures! I’d also really love someone to want to send me one but I suppose that is asking for quite a bit 🙂

Small Sabbatical

Posted in Personal on March 26, 2010 by BEA'sBrideGuide

Can a person require a sabbatical from their fun on-the-side hobby? Probably not! But I needed a little break from the blog due to a recent promotion at work (yay me!), the stomach flu (boo!), and a string of wedding related events (good for you people in love).  But don’t worry the blog is finally back and I promise to not neglect it again!!!
