My Favorite Utah Stay-Cation//Zermatt Resort

Hospitality is something I’ve always been familiar with. When you’re mom is from Brazil, I grew up having people over All. The. Time. It was very common for us to host friends/family (even acquaintances we barely knew), and invite them to spend their vacation staying in our home in Southern California. It’s actually a big part of Brazilian culture to […]

Gray Lace Formal Gown

  I recently attended a charity gala for The Make A Wish Foundation and needed a formal gown. With how quickly styles change, I’ve learned that renting dresses for things like prom and a gala are definitely the way to go! This one was a light gray lace that was actually very sheer so I […]

Blush and Bling Evening Gown

 I remember on my wedding day wishing I was smaller and skinnier. The funny thing is most of us who are married (or who have been married a while) look back and usually think “if I only looked like that again!” Am I right? Well, I have definitely been on both sides of the fence and […]
