Happy Wedding Wednesday – and a programming note.

Before we begin #WW with 3 blog post and a great big virtual hug to some of our favorite vendors, please don’t forget to comment on the YouTube story, as we’ll close the giveaway Friday for the $25 gift card.  Next week, we have another really wonderful giveaway, so share this blog with your friends – tweet it, FB it, comment aaaanndddd….we’ll see you all back here this afternoon for Wedding Wonders.   Our first post will be the best, newest, most thoughtful and gorgeous bridesmaids gifts that you probably have not thought of!

Now, off to my weekly tennis game.  I say that lightly, as I rather suck. We leave you with this photo of the most insanely beautiful peonies, courtesy of 1313 Photography.

What would you like to see on our YouTube Channel? (giveaway!)

So, we’re filming bits for our YouTube channel and want to know what our readers would like to see!

– Wedding advice?  Fashion?  DIY Wedding and party projects?  Cooking demos?  How to do place settings?  How to do an inspiro board?  Etiquette? Decorating at home?  Shopping trips for the best of everything?  Travel tips?  Honeymoon tips?  How to pack a suitcase?  Beauty, hair, jewelry how-to?

Tell us here and we’ll choose a random winner for a $25 Target, Amazon or Ulta gift card (your pick).  Which, apparently, you can no longer use for Missoni.  Oh, yeah, we scored.  We’ll tell you about it later.  GO!

PS – off to get my summer hair chopped shorter and re-lit.  I’ll post pics later!


iLiz. Summer Saturday Playlist.

Posted on

The oppressive heat of the area where our office is has made me a tad melancholy.  Clients often ask – or Shazam – “Hey, what IS that song?” when we’re doing our playlists for parties, clients or ourselves in the office.   We’re obsessed with new music, old music, all genres and something that makes us sing, dance, cry, create, or just chill.

I believe many of us would choose (God forbid) to be lose another sense before hearing.  Here is a little, eclectic summer playlist I’ve been toying with.  These are the YouTube video links.  You will want to buy all of them on iTunes.  Enjoy!

Yes, that's my wonderful white iPad that I love. Listening now!

Adele, “Someone Like You”.  Alas, poor Wino, you did pass the torch.  Adele will be an ICON.

Julian Casablancas, “11th Dimension”.  The modeling agency mogul’s son has a tight band.  Sexy ear candy.

Steve Perry, “Oh Sherrie” – goodness, my childhood.  So nostalgic.  I just CANNOT with a new Journey lead singer.  It’s like watching that horrifying movie, “Rock Star” with Mark Wahlberg as the leather clad replacement singer for “Steeldragon”.   OK, that’s embarrassingly accurate without the aid of Google.

The Pogues, “Fairytale of New York” – with Kirsty McColl.  Come on, kids.  The Pogues!  New York!  Snow!

Arcade Fire, “Intervention” – soaring, anthemic, my favourite band and a new favourite track.

Alison Krauss and Union Station, “Let Me Touch You for a While”.  Took me years to like her.  I’m a damn fool.  Sublime.

Jack Penate – “Pull My Heart Away”.  I don’t know why, but this makes me sob.  In a good way.

R.E.M. – “I’ve Been High” – gorgeous.  All the reasons to love Stipe & Co.  My first show was in my college gymnasium.

Peter Gabriel, “Here Comes the Flood”.  OK, clearly this is shaping up to be an emotional list. 1979 and sounds like new.

Fleetwood Mac, “Landslide” and “Storms”.  Brides – “Landslide” is a perfect father/daughter dance.  “Storms” is my fave.

Fleet Foxes, “Blue Ridge Mountains”.  I am partial to this poetic band and partial to this area of the world.  Naturally.

Alejandro Escovedo, “Sister Lost Soul” – Austin’s best singer songwriter.  Friend of BRUUUUUUCE.  Who I’d marry.

John Mayer, “Perfectly Lonely”.  Yep, he’s an asshat.  Great song.  Not for your first dance if you are a bride to be.

John Hiatt, “Have a Little Faith in Me” – perfection.  That is all.  Oh, a great first dance, by the way!

Massive Attack, “Live With Me” or “Angel”.  Nothing better on a sultry summer night.  Beautiful.
