This Pearl and Silver Earrings Giveaway Will Make Your Monday :)

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Emma here and my weekend was pretty awesome. I went to a family reunion pool party, the weather was gorgeous, I got to see my favorite people, and I finally got a decent tan going. I also had one of these and, let me tell you: it’s the new Slurpee. When I don’t have to run in and fill it up (just go through the drive-thru), that totally works for me, especially when it’s 90 degrees outside. And let me tell you, it is d e l i c i o u s. Anyway, we hope your weekend was full of fun, too!

We’re kicking off this intensely hot Monday morning with a brand new giveaway from the amazing Jane of Jacaranda Designs! When Jane wanted to give away a pair of these silver and pearl earrings, we couldn’t wait to share them with you. One lucky reader will receive this pair that features a triple flower hydrangea bouquet design. The earrings have a cream Swarovski glass coin pearl that has a brilliant luster. The flowers are matte silver plated brass with sterling silver posts. These are ideal for a classic bride who wants a unique and eye-catching design. Take a look!

What is a Blusher Veil?

First things first: what is a blusher veil?

A blusher veil is a short wedding veil that covers the bride’s face as she walks down the aisle. A blusher is a very classic choice. You can choose a blusher veil by itself, or have a blusher veil added to another veil style. It can be as poufy as you’d like; a single layer blusher veil is closer to your face, while a double layer blusher veil — like this one, below — offers more volume.

How is a Blusher Veil Worn?

Most blusher veils are attached to a simple hair comb or a headband. This blusher veil, shown below by Rose Red Bridal Designs, is attached to your hair with a hair comb.

A blusher veil looks great with any hairstyle, with your hair worn down or in an updo.
