Pumpkin Schmunkin'

We're just a few days away from Halloween. That means fun Masquerade and Halloween parties to prepare for. What are you going to be for Halloween this year? I think I'll stick to a Venetian Masquerade Mask.

For this Halloween, bring family and friends together with festive aroma's like pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, Starbucks Pumpkin Latte (let's face it, you'll need that boost of caffeine before and after taking the kids trick-or-treating), and of course Helen Julia's Sexy Suede Soy Candle; a nice balance of down to earth woody sandalwood and musk sweetened with just the right balance of vanilla.

(Remember, shipping is FREE now through November 21st! No Promo Code necessary.)

Feel Good Mondays: Friends Til The End!

I am not referring to a Chucky Doll from the movie Child's Play, although Halloween is just a few days away! There's nothing that feels good about a horror flick with creepy characters (who am I kidding). I'm referring to great friends that are by your side through thick and thin.

Friends are your family. The ones you can call on for anything and everything. When you just need an ear to listen to you without any judgment. Someone to be your date on date night when you've been stood up. You can trust them to be completely honest without sugarcoating what you need to hear. They are a great support system and your dream team.

Good friends come and go. Great friends are around for a lifetime. This is dedicated to my great friends who have stuck around through the season, did not need a reason and are still around for a lifetime! Do you know who your great friends are?

Happy Monday!

Lights, Camera, Preston!

"Oh Preston!" is what clients repeat after renowned event designer, Preston Bailey, has transformed raw, ordinary spaces into sumptuous, theatrical environments!

From a tree that encompasses an entire ballroom to twenty-foot-tall floral peacock sculptures! Now that is what I call an imagination! Preston Bailey's event designs are a visual show!

Preston Baily just relaunched his GORGEOUS new website. We don't expect anything less than perfect when it comes to Preston Baily. Just call him Midas as whatever he touches turns to gold! My kind of designer!

Preston doesn't stop at event designing. He also has a beautiful collection of invitations!

In my clear crystal ball I see Preston Bailey and Helen Julia cross paths in the near future! That would be something to sing about!

Feel Good Mondays: Daddy's Little Girl

This is not about one of many Tyler Perry movies. However, this is about the cutest commercial I've seen reflecting on fatherhood. This commercial totally put a smile on my face while trying to fight the emotion of my eyes welling up from joy as I reminisce about my father. There is a comfort that overcomes you when watching this commercial on a father spending time with his daughter in the most memorable way that she will remember for the rest of her life!

The best part is the lyrics! I just love it!

Happy Monday!
