WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Valentine’s Day Wedding

Some say that a Valentine’s Day wedding, the day where all things glitter pink and cupid flies around, might be a cheesy day to pick for your special moment, but this Valentine’s Day I dare to defy that! I found some amazing Valentine’s day weddings that are delightfully stylish and sophisticated. Never let a cliche or misconceptions others have prevent you from having the wedding of your dreams!

HOME-SPIRATION: Double Sinks

The week of Valentine’s is all about pairs. This is the week to buy chocolates for two and of course celebrate your better half. I had to pay homage to this idea of couples and pairs with a home-spiration full of amazing double sinks. I think that most of us who live with our significant other know that one of the keys to a very happy home life is double sinks! Here are some of my favorite double sink h0me-spirations…
