Menus…done the RIGHT way!

January 29, 2015

Allow your menu to make a statement. It is a visual teaser for what is about to come and really can be a true conversation topic at the table. Go outside the box and let your creative juices flow!

The Perfect Blend-Real Wedding of J + A

January 28, 2015


This wine loving couple tied the knot at The Stables at Bluemont Vineyard which served as the beautiful scenic backdrop for their nuptials. The vineyard was lit up with lanterns, candles and tons of details that the bride made to make the day just perfect. The day was exactly how they envisioned: beautiful weather, remarkable vistas and a true celebration surrounded by family and friends!

“Alan and I have always shared a love for wine. Our first trip we took together was to Napa, which was an amazing experience. I think that trip set the theme for our engagement and wedding reception. We got engaged at a vineyard with a picnic lunch and our dog, Apollo, at our side. We then searched for the perfect reception venue. We wanted something rustic for our family and friends to enjoy good food and drinks and of course wine.”

Shaving TLC

January 27, 2015

Who knew there was an art to shaving? Today we bring you some helpful tips on making sure your shave leaves you feeling silky smooth!

1. Exfoliate Before Shaving: Getting rid of the dead skin before shaving, helps create a cleaner shave. The dead skin cells that build up on our skin often clog the razor blades.

2. Choosing the Right Razor: Choose a razor that has a moisture strip of aloe or acai. Since razors dull, be sure to replace your razor after every 5-6 uses.

3. It’s Best to End Your Shower with a Shave: Saving your shaving session for the end of your shower, leads to better results. The steam and warm water help open your pores and hair follicles, making it much easier to get a nice. clean shave.

4. Apply Baby Oil Before Shaving Cream: Applying baby oil before your shaving cream is not always necessary; however, for very sensitive skin, the baby oil helps prevent the post shave dreaded razor burn.

5. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize: The most important thing to remember is the tender, love and care your skin needs after your shave. My favorite is to moisturize with extra virgin coconut oil. Your legs are sure to be left feeling hydrated and smooth.

6. Don’t forget about the boys! We love the Dollar Shave Club, which serves as the perfect gift for your groomsmen. Buy monthly subscriptions to the Dollar Shave Club and have the famous product and blades delivered right to your front door!

Happy National Handwriting Day

January 23, 2015

Even though we live in a digital world, no computer will ever replace the sincerity and individualism of a written word. We find a majority of our inspiration comes from script. Today, we are thankful there is a special day that honors the importance of handwriting. So, we challenge you to put down your phones and computers and put a pen back to paper. Happy National Handwriting Day!
