Carrot Cake Wedding Cake So Yummy

I love cake especially when you can have your take of vegetables. Huh? It's carrot cake I'm talking about. While not everyone is fan of carrot cake, I personally think it's a great flavor for a wedding cake. But, if you are not a fan of carrot cake, at least there are many other options. Check out Wilton's site for more recipes! And if you're still looking for a carrot cake recipe, try this recipe that uses white chocolate icing. YUM!

As for the design of the cake, this design would simply take the cake! Don't you just love the pretty daisies. So cute.

A Wonderful Alternative to an Engagement Ring

Would you still say "yes" if your fiance didn't pop a ring, but instead a necklace like this one? Yes, of course! I was thinking about engagement necklaces as a unique, hip alternative to rings. Don't get me wrong. I love rings, but sometimes having to wear a ring all the time can pose small issues like when you're cooking or when you have to dip your hands in a brownie batter! Hence, I thought that an engagement necklace would be a wonderful option. Plus, you can flaunt it more easily than a ring, since it's on your neck. While browsing through the lovely necklace collection at Neiman Marcus, I chose this cable circle pendant from the David Yurman collection as my favorite:

Cable Circle Pendant - Sterling silver Cable circle pendant with pave diamonds on a box chain. 1.08 total carat weight.

Halter style dress in blue from Edenbridals

I just can't say this enough, but I love this gorgeous and stunning bridesmaid dress from EdenBridals. This beautiful halter-style V-neck, chiffon royal blue piece is sure to be eye-catching during the wedding. What I really like about this gown is the backside! And let's not forget the elegant brooch in the front. Just pretty, so pretty! I can see how this dress would be great for a winter, fairy tale wedding or even at a tropical wedding ceremony by the beach. It's royal blue after all. Match it up with some black or metallic-matte colored shoes.

Foodzie - Luv it!

Every once in a while, you just want to see something totally different. Something you want to eat naturally. So, when I am looking for something truly scrumptious, I head for the site of Foodzie. There are so many unique, edible items on their site that I'm sure you are bound to find a perfect wedding gift. Or even those cookies you've been wanting to give out as favors. If you have any questions on making an order, you can also always contact the artisan and perhaps find something that they can make just for you.

And just to let you know or to whet your appetite, here is what I found today! Cookies from Elsylee Galetes Artesanals:

Color Those Nails Pretty

Oh. Beauty calls again! This time it's nail polish for having the prettiest nails on your wedding day. I recommend NARS Cosmetics simply because this is one of the few ones that have UV protection. MAC Cosmetics incidentally is the other brand that also has them.

When I found the shades of NARS nail polish at their website, I immediately fell in love with their glamorous shades. Think of sparkly pink or pearl or pearly white. Their names are equally funny like "Temptation" or "Candy Darling!" I'm sure you will find a shade that is perfect for you.

I found mine here (see Candy Darling):

And here is just a preview of some of their shades:

They also have a line of Limited Edition Shades!
