Summer of Style, Weddings and Fun

 

 

be-yourself-together

In less than a month Sam and I are taking a road trip to Colorado! Three years ago when we got married, my friend Doug walked me down the aisle. Now his daughter Dani is getting married and I am literally counting down the days.

I’ve known Dani since she was 13, we first met at a Russian Orphanage, which she’s travelled to with her dad. She immediately became popular with all the boys, because she was (and still is) an amazing soccer player. It’s hard to believe that she is getting married, but I can’t wait!

I know that a lot of you are attending weddings this summer, and I wanted to make this post both personal, and helpful. Target has always been my favorite place to shop for wedding gifts, and their #TargetWedding registry catalogue couldn’t be more helpful. So today I am going to share a few things with you, which I hope inspire you!

I have been loving the SodaStream, and I think it’s a perfect gift for everyone. Making your own drinks, experimenting with flavors, what can be more fun? Sharing them with friends and family at a party or a back yard gathering, that’s what! I am sure this will be a perfect gift for the newlyweds. I know I am throwing a party later this summer, once all of our home remodeling projects are over!

And how fun are these drinks dispensers? I love the chalk board one the most. Which one is your favorite?

The Bridal Shower I Never Had // Win $25 Target Gift Card (ends November 5)

Yes, I never had a bridal shower. Finally, after being married for over 2 years, I ‘fessed up! But if I did, here is what I would do:

– Invite all the closest family and friends and have a fabulous dinner party!

– No games, no immature jokes or stories, just a nicely put together event!

– Decorate, decorate, decorate!

And here is where Target Wedding Registry and Catalog would come in handy!

And of course the drinks!

Be yourself, together! Let’s talk Wedding Registry!

Target Wedding

Be yourself, together is this year’s Target’s theme. And it’s no secret, that Target is one of the number ones wedding registry destinations.

I am yet to attend a wedding where the bride and the groom weren’t registered at Target! Two years ago Sam and I were on the list as well!

And today I am collaborating with Target and will be sharing a unique wedding gift idea (or two) for both parties in the wedding!

I will be honest with you, I had so much fun shopping and window shopping for this collaboration post. I love weddings. I do, I do, I do.

And the gift ideas at Target are endless. From their new Gifts to Go section, to designer collaborations (not only when it comes to clothing, but when it comes to home appliances too!)

These Jackie Shapiro designed appliances would be a perfect match for a Threshold dinner set! I think Threshold is one of my favorite Target collections these days. You’ll see more of the Threshold pieces later 🙂

And how about these sheets paired up with this amazing and almost matching pajamas?

When I think  of coffee, I think of books, and Target has a great variety of those, including major best-sellers. I am especially looking forward to reading “Revenge Wears Prada”. That’s why I think this coffee machine would be perfect for creating that great tasting cup when you are snuggling with a book on a cold autumn day.

But I bet you are dying to see what I picked. What my perfect Target wedding registry gifts are! Drumroll please!

Being a personal blogger I can’t imagine my life without a camera! And I chose to pair it up with a pair of booties, that would spice up my fall outfits!
