10 Ways To Embrace Spring

Posted on 7

Welcome Spring! While the spring equinox was nearly a month ago it sure doesn’t feel like spring in most places. In fact, when I took these photos in North Carolina the next few weeks were bitterly cold. Now that I am located in Washington I feel like it’s winter part II. That hasn’t stopped me from thinking all things spring. And just because it doesn’t feel like spring, doesn’t mean it isn’t so let’s embrace is whether it’s 70 or 55 degrees! In this post I am sharing 10 tips to embrace spring to truly get you in the seasonal spirit. I hope they help make your spring brighter.

1. Plant a flower/tree or buy one to leave on your front step
There is nothing that will freshen up your life like some fresh blooms. Even if the grass and trees haven’t caught on that it’s spring, a little pop of color in your front yard or on your front doorstep will brighten up your day. After all, the world laughs in flowers!

Blush Bridal Shares the Best Tips for Brides

Posted on 12

In this Q&A series, I sat down with Candice Richardson of Blush Bridal, which is located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. We discussed everything and anything from how she opened her bridal boutique, best tips for brides, and bridal resources for women of color. Also check out Blush Bridal’s variety of gorgeous gowns, I had so much fun taking these photos around her boutique. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Tell me the history of Blush Bridal – how did an idea turn into an actual business and boutique?
“Having been brides ourselves once upon a time, we both felt something important was missing from the bride’s experience: a personal touch. In 2014, we paired Faith’s skills as a business consultant and dress designer and Candice’s background as a business owner to open Blush Bridal in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Funny story – while owning the furniture store, I was taking a QuickBooks class and Faith was the instructor. We just sort of hit it off and from there we both discovered our shared passion for business… bridal. When our website launched our first ordered was out of Paris, France. We were so excited!”

The back detail trend is so fun.  As they say business in the front – party in the back! I love this white shirt because in the front it looks like a classic button down, but once I turn around it has a beautiful crisscross detail.
