Happy Flip Flop Friday!

Wedding flip-flops? It never occurred to me these words could fit together in a sentence.  Maybe I’ve been wrong all this time….  read on….

Tonite I googled “flip-flops” to see what came up- you know, to inspire me to find something slightly interesting to write about for Flip Flop Friday. Then I saw the wedding flip-flops thing and just had to check it out. Really… flip-flops on your wedding day? Well, why not??!   (I found some really cute choice!)

Why bother with high heels? Havaianas, please…..

Some great websites to check out:  Etsy, wrapwithus.com; Bridalflipflops.com; Nordstrom; Macy’s… I could go on….

Happy Flip Flop Friday!  Cheers!

When I walked into this shop I was greeted by Shanna while I browsed the racks. All formal wear dresses in my photos were between $199 and $350. As far as the wedding dress inventory, prices range from $500 to approximately $2,000 range. For the budget babes out there planning a wedding- this shop offers wedding dress rentals for $250 for the weekend. How cool is that?! (a lot of times women wear their wedding dress once and then it sits in a box in the closet…) I find the idea of renting a wedding dress very eco-friendly and budget friendly– $250 for a designer wedding gown sounds awesome!

DIY – Wooden Cigar Box Transforms into Jewelry Box

Do you have too much jewelry and not an organized place to keep it all? I found myself in a similar situation– jewelry stashed in random places to the point I had to “search” for what I wanted to wear. Well, I came up with a stylish DIY project last weekend while strolling thru Kobey’s Swap Meet in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego.

Tucked in the midst of random odd household items I found the I Liquidate table featuring some fantastic cigar boxes. You read that right– cigar boxes. I purchased a total of 3 wooden cigar boxes and the owner threw in a freebie– I spent $10. I figured this would be an excellent was to re-use something that might be thrown in the trash. The boxes were surprisingly sturdy and of good quality.

The stack of boxes looks really cute tucked in my living room cabinet. I secured some felt to line the boxes (price: Free) so my jewelry will be protected. This was a super quick & easy project. It took maybe 30 minutes to line the boxes with the felt. Probably the biggest time-consuming part of the whole thing was deciding which jewelry would be placed in which box (decisions!).
