August 30th is National Marshmallow Toasting Day

No one really knows who proclaimed it but today (August 30th) is National Marshmallow toasting day.  It's just another day to add to our calendars but it's a great day to celebrate with the kids, or even host your own Marshmallow toasting party - just because!  I used to love smores as a kid and it's been years since I've had one.  I discovered this inexpensive decadent treat at 6th grade overnight camp.  There is nothing like the taste of a gooey marshmallow roasted over an open flame.  Check out this great recipe for a twist on smores! 

Smores Recipe
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine butter, sugar and graham cracker crumbs until well coated. Press half of crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Top with the chocolate chips, then the marshmallows. Sprinkle the remaining graham cracker mixture over the marshmallows and press down with a spatula.
  3. Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes, until marshmallows are melted. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Enjoy!!

Wedding Dress Shopping: Buyers Beware

We want to make sure that brides are getting the wedding dress of their dreams, not a cheap imitation. To avoid nuptial nightmares and make the most of your gown-shopping experience, we suggest brushing up on some buying basics.
Do: Bargain HuntKeep an eye out for sample sales. Browse websites for listings and ask salons in your area about getting on their mailing list. Already found the dress of your dreams? Don't rely on a deal on eBay to save you from paying the full price. You must be a wise and flexible shopper to find what you want for a price you like. Changing gown fabrics is a better way to save and the difference can be significant (sometimes $1,000 or more).
Don't: Rule Out Online ShoppingOnline retailers like J.Crew and Ann Taylor make dress shopping a cinch. Gowns fit true to size, you can make quick returns or exchanges, and you can even have dresses delivered in under a week (though we still suggest getting the gown at least three months in advance …

My Microblading Experience: Will I do it again?

So I decided to try microblading on my eyebrows. As a side note, if you plan on having it done for your wedding or other event, I recommend getting the procedure done no less than 3 months before your event.  After scouring the internet and watching countless Youtube videos and checking out Instagram photos, I became obsessed with this new beauty craze.

For those of you who aren't familar with microblading, it is a type of permanent makeup for your eyebrows.  Your eyebrows are tattooed with permanent ink.  The ink is deposited under the skin, just like a regular tattoo.  Instead of a tattoo blade, microblading uses several needles formoing a blade to cut the skin.  The result is hairlike brush strokes cuts on the skin which are then filled with your choice of colored ink.  While this is a form of permanent make-up, just like any tattoo, touch ups are needed so it's not a one time permenent thing.

If you are like me, before I got the procedure, the main thing you probably want…
