EYE Swear by This....

Recently, I've been noticing how dry and thin my skin is under my eyes. I lather on the face cream in the morning and night but no matter what, I still notice how much moisture my eyes are lacking. Is this a sign that I'm getting older?! GRRR.... Anyway,  I did some research online about eye creams and discovered Clinique - All About Eyes RICH. After using it for 4 days now, I can really see/feel the difference in the look and texture under my eyes. HOORRAY! Keep up the good work eye cream - I'm hooked so far.

I Like Mine With Lettuce and Tomato......

Today my co-workers and I went to Carytown Burgers & Fries for lunch. I've never been so I was excited to try this jem of a burger joint. We sat outside in their shaded area and indulged ourselves with burgers, milkshakes and was AMAZING!

Ugh, I wish we didn't have to go back to work after this heavy meal - Tear!

Week update and Birthday Weekend

This past week has been out of control busy. With the wedding 3 weeks away and my new role at work, things have been a bit hectic - to say the least! Anyway, to back track a little, I wanted to share how amazing my friend KKW's trunk show went. The turn out was amazing and YUP I found a stunning dress of hers that I had to have! Check it out :

 The dress I fell in love with and had to buy

My birthday weekend was very fun as well. I spent most of my days inside due to the heat but also to put ribbon on all our programs for the wedding. RBD surprised me on Saturday with two Pearls Cupcakes (Champagne and Coconut) - they were de-lish and he got me a little treat from Lilly!

Fun Times!

And my amazing birthday gift from RBD - a Lilly Tunic!!!
Thank you!!!

Also, Thank you to all my friends and family for the birthday wishes and KKW for blogging a happy birthday to me.

Loving Life

I've been extremely busy lately and bad with blogging (sorry) but I can't complain! I am now one month away from my wedding and couldn't be happier to share that day with all my family and friends. It's clear to say that I am loving life! This past weekend/week has been full of inspiration and new adventures. Here's an insight:

Making sure pink peony's are somewhere in my bouquet 
I love this flower 
I'm in love with this coral Chanel bag 

RBD's new obsession is a restaurant in Richmond called The Blue Goat - It just opened.
The food was absolutely amazing but some of the wording for the food is a bit interesting for a plan eatter like myself - i.e. Batter fried, julienne strips of Smithfield Farm pig ear, a sunny side duck egg with crispy Swiss chard. This was my "new adventure" since I'm such a plan eatter but everything was amazing.

And of course - all things Bayley :)

Showered with Love Part II....

Last night my co-workers threw me a shower to celebrate RBD and I's nuptial. It was such a blast, one, to be outside of work with all my amazing co-workers and two, that RBD got to join in the festivities! We all met  after work at this fabulous resturant called Havana 59. I loved the outdoor feel of this place and it was PERFECT for our fun group.

Almost A Month Away

RBD and I are rapidly approaching our wedding day and we can't wait. This past weekend we drove up to CT to spend some time with our family and also get our marriage licence...ya!!! The whole experence of planning a wedding has been such an adventure and I'm not going to lie, I think I'll miss planning when it's all over. I know, crazy, right?!  Well, let the count down begin - only 39 days to go!!!!!!
