I’m a matron of honor again this year!! That meant/means I have the pleasure of planning more fun events to celebrate my beautiful bride-to-be, Dominique! She is getting married in October and we celebrated her bachelorette party back in May in Miami!! We stayed at the Fontainebleau Hotel and had a blast that weekend – complete with great eats (Prime 112 is always a must on a Miami trip), yacht days (the bride wanted a boat day and we had to do her one better), and day parties (Hyde Beach was crazy!). Dominique shares my love (read obsession) with Beyonce and I thought it would be perfect to throw a Beyonce inspired bachelorette! We’re not talking anything crazy (in love), just a few yonce touches.

While prepping, I found these cute cards that I planned the details around. Why? Well, the song, duh! And we were getting in formation to send our bachelorette off with a bang! I like to have fun with gifts and this bach party was no exception. You may remember the bachelorette welcome box I created last year  –HERE. There are so many great ways to make them special so I loved having the opportunity to dream up a new theme.

Welcome Box Essentials

I think a ‘hangover kit’ of sorts is a must in a bachelorette welcome box. Well, if you’re planning to party that is – a hangover kit for a spa bach weekend is probably not the way to go…just sayin. I found these AMAZING ‘Drunk In Love’ hangover kit bags and had to have them. Gotta stick with the theme afterall! Here’s the breakdown of what I included:

  • Gift Box – I went with these cute white and gold ones from Mod Party. I’ve used them before, they ship quickly and are super easy to put together! As I’ve mentioned before, bags are great too, I just have always loved a gift box.
  • Coconut Water/Lemonade – I originally planned to put in some coconut water because we were going to the beach, yada yada, then when I arrived and was running around picking up some last minute items, I saw mini lemonades and said, “HOLD UP!” – much better with my Beyonce theme. Coconut water would be a great option though.
  • Hair Ties – I don’t know about you but hair ties are like finding your second sock, never know where it is when you need it! These palm tree ties were super cute and very MIA.
  • Sugarfina Paloma candies – I love sugarfina, you already know. These paloma flavored ones sounded very appropriate for our destination as well! A little tequila, a little grapefruit, a little sweet, yes please!!
  • Supergoop Setting Mist – I’ve confessed my relatively new love of Supergoop products (here), it really is so perfect for Summer! I ordered minis of the setting mist sunscreen – essential for a day party sunscreen touch up over your makeup! #gamechanger

Hangover Kit

  • Wisps – bachelorette party or not, these come in handy. Amazon came through, as usual, because I was able to buy in bulk – much more economical.
  • Simply Gum Mints – same as above – plus I love this all natural, brand.
  • Advil – because it’s the only way to rally and party on.
  • Liquid IV – let me tell you, this works soooo well! It’s not just if you’re feeling hungover, it is really amazing for just keeping hydrated! Plus it tastes good #thankmelater
  • RX Bars – an assortment of flavors, a few ingredients, healthy and keep you going.

This Beyonce inspired bach box was not only on theme with the Bride’s favorite artist but also our destination! Details make such a difference when putting together gifts, events, etc. Have fun with it!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale HOME DECOR Picks

Well, my Instagram poll results (and subsequent DMs) are in and you all have spoken! I am sharing a few of my picks for the home decor items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I find that shoppers mainly focus on the great fashion deals, which there are many (here). However, there are really great home goods to take advantage of. Trust me, I know because many of these I have (or have similar pieces) and would’ve LOVED to get on sale. Such is life. Here is the link to the catalog…


My Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’m sure you’re seeing a ton about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so here’s my two cents as well! Decided to share the sale info for you to keep note of as well as some of my picks – hope it helps! Admittedly, I tend to be so bad about taking advantage of this sale and missing out on some amazing Fall finds. I’ll put (a bunch) of things in my cart and then get distracted or try to talk myself out of how much I have in my cart…I know…

My Turks and Caicos Travel Guide

BJ and I visited Turks and Caicos back in May and we are so happy to have finally checked this beautiful island off our list! We went for 5 days and I can’t wait to visit again – I may or may not have already started looking up dates. We were looking for a destination where we could just relax, unwind and get-a-WAY….this was definitely it! I’d wanted to go for so long and had always heard great things. My friend Erin has a family house in Turks and has…

How to Be a Great Hostess

I know I’ve shared all too often that my love of entertaining and all things ‘home’ comes from my gorgeous momma! She really is the ULTIMATE hostess and I still learn so much from her in that regard – well, in everything honestly lol. She is not only skilled at creating the most beautiful events and settings, but she is especially skilled at making special moments. Moments that make all that are present feel welcome and special. That, to me, makes a true hostess. I wanted to show you a…
