As holiday shopping lists begin to finalize, I wanted to share a few of my favorite gift ideas! The easiest way to select holiday gifts for everyone on your list is to decide what you want to evoke — Could your mom use a little relaxation? Or is your sister in need of a new pair of boots? Thoughtful gifts are the best because it proves the person felt like spending more than a few minutes on the recipient, instead of purchasing a simple gift card.
There are so many gifts available online that will put a smile on anyone’s face and conveniently arrive at your doorstep — Like the Erbaviva Relax Deluxe Gift Set, which includes everything you need for a daily at-home-spa experience! Keep reading for more of my favorite gift options, happy shopping!
Prey Swim has been a long-time passion project for me, and I couldn’t be happier to share what we’ve been working on. The first Resort 2017 collection is currently available at www.preyswim.com, and it is inspired by my love for the beach, exotic travels around the globe, and Southern California, of course!
We recently celebrated with a Moroccan-themed party to kick off the launch! The space was beautifully decorated to complement the collection with Bohemian accents from Witty Rentals and oversized palm leaves and sleek succulents provided by Florist Petals LA! Guests enjoyed specialty Ciroq Mango cocktails, custom desserts by Cake Studio, and wine minis by Electric Sky Wine while listening to music by DJ Lindsay Luv.
If you haven’t already checked out the Prey Swim collection, you’re missing out! All of the suits are reversible and made with high quality fabrics, so they cater to all body types and busts ranging from Size A – DD. I am so happy to present to you the Prey Swim Resort 2017 collection!!
Everyone has been so supportive and patient, and it is finally time to discuss (one of) the most important wedding details: My Dress! This gorgeous dress was custom made by Pallas Couture in Australia — we talked over Skype and created the design a few months in advance, then I met the team in New York for Bridal Fashion Week to try finally try it on and make final alterations!
They did an INCREDIBLE job. The vibe I was going for was Boho Glam — I wanted it to feel beachy but also fancy and romantic, and they completely nailed it! I felt like a princess!
I wanted my shoes to be simple and these strappy nude heels from Grace Loves Lace were the perfect fit.
I was so nervous! But holding Corey’s hand and having Kirra there made the jitters go away.
I wanted everyone to throw rose petals as we walked back up the aisle, and I’m so happy with how the photos turned out!
The love the invitations and save the date memories Wedding Paper Divas created — they are elegant and tropical with a touch of rose gold details. I wanted cobalt blue to be one of our main colors for the reception, so we decided to use blue water and wine glasses!
Every guest had a hexagon stone with their name engraved.
Every guest also received a welcome bag, which included an Aloha tote, sunscreen/moisturizer by Purlisse, & other goodies!
Naked buttermilk cake… simple and delicious!
Corey and I LOVE specialty drinks! One of our favorites is Sunny Jack (Diet Sunkist & Jack Daniels), but we followed the theme and went with Mai Tais & live music during cocktail hour. Rosé is also my guilty pleasure, so we had Rosé Lemonade and a Rosé Spritzer!
We had tons of twinkly lights and lounge areas.. We also had a kids activity area and a separate tent for babies and mamas!
I loved the twinkly lights and hexagon floral chandeliers that hung over the dance floor. I wanted it to feel romantic and magical, especially once it got dark. Morgan from Moana Events and Steve Boyle Design brought my vision to life!
No bride is complete without her best gals, and I can’t thank these amazing ladies enough for standing by my side through thick and thin! Since the wedding was fairly small, the bridal party was, too — but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. From left to right, we have my best friend Kendra, sister Casey, sister Samantha, and Sister-in-Law Theani!I’m feeling extra thankful this week, but the wedding would not have gone as smoothly as it did without these 4 incredible women as my support system! Here are some of my favorite Bride/Bridesmaids robes to wear while getting ready for the big day — Stay tuned for décor and dress details coming soon:)
