Can Bing Read My Mind?

Posted in Personal on May 24, 2010 by BEA'sBrideGuide

I have an unnatural love of personalize stationery and odds-and-ends.  A monogrammed coaster? Done! With an elephant? Even better.  Imagine my delight at finding Iomoi, a collection of overly preppy and fashionable coasters, stationery, plates, and goodies.  Then imagine my dismay when I insisted to google the site was called imomo. Apparently googling imomo elephant monogrammed coaster will not lead you to Iomoi. Fortunately for us all my browser’s history does 🙂

Do yourself a favor and visit Iomoi in Safari!

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?

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!!!
