We spotted a new collection of headbands over at Bridelicious and we’re delighted to share them with you… PLUS, we’re giving one of them away! Which one is it? Read on to find out…

We’re so excited to share a brand new DIY with you today! Like many of you, I (Emma here!) love flowers, but I’m no floral designer. However, when we met the folks at Bloominous and they told us about their kits, we were eager to give it a go. This weekend, surrounded by protea, roses, safari sunsets, liatris, spray roses, succulents, and more, we rolled up or sleeves and tackled our very own DIY boho wedding bouquet (and centerpiece) to prove just how easy it really is. Read on see how it’s done!

Hi, loves, Emma here! I was browsing (okay, swooning over) the vintage inspired bridal finds over at BHLDN the other day and, holy smokes, what a collection! Instead of keeping these to myself, I pulled together a style board with vintage inspired bridal finds for a complete look. You’ll find a wedding dress, a pair of heels, a sparkly pair of sandals (girl’s gotta be comfortable!), a garter, a pair of earrings, and a fab art deco inspired clutch. I think you’ll love what I’ve pulled together! Let’s begin, shall we?

You probably won’t believe us, but spring is actually around the corner. I know. It doesn’t feel like it at all, and I (Emma here!) can’t even remember what summer feels like. I’ve reached the point this winter where I’m tired of putting on a winter coat, boots, gloves, a hat, and a scarf every time I want to go anywhere. So, I’ll be the first to say that spring can’t come soon enough! Today we’re warming you up with some hot new styles for spring and summer sandals by the lovely folks over at Fibi & Clo. We’ve teamed up with the past and we love, love, love their sandals. Read on to see five new styles for summer sandals from their collection and see which pair got the EB Editor’s Pick! Whether you’re wearing a pair of summer sandals down the aisle or on your honeymoon, we’re certain you’ll find a pair to love from this collection. Enjoy!

Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! When we spotted this sweet initial necklace with heart charm over at Ava Hope Designs, it was love at first sight.

I (Emma here!) love sharing hairstyle trends, whether for weddings or just a night on the town. My favorite hairstyle as of late is the low rolled updo, also known as the ‘Gibson Tuck’. This hairstyle is ideal for medium- to long- length hair (and it looks pretty easy to do yourself). While this style is an emerging trend, it’s not anything new: it’s actually a throwback style from the 1890′s. Show it off as-is or add a gorgeous hair accessory, like an embellished headband (like the one shown below). Read on to find out more…
