Monday, December 31, 2012

Hello Lovelies,

How are you all doing?? I just wanted to do a really quick post saying THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Since I've started this blog I've gotten soooo much feedback about how much our posts help and inspire people who are wedding planning or just love weddings, and that is what it is all about! I know this year I did not blog as much as I wanted to because I was so consumed with planning my own wedding and then adjusting to the married life but in 2013 I am ready to ROCK n ROLL! You will see new things here at the blog and we always welcome positive feedback and ask you all to tell us what you want to read about! We love you ALL and pray that this new year is filled with nothing but happiness, joy, growth, and all things wonderful!!! MUAH!!

Stay Beautiful,

Beauty Sightings: Colored Rocks

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Hello Lovelies!!

I hope everyone enjoyed the first part of the holiday season!! I know I had a great time! Well, during the holiday season everyone is happy, in good spirits, and everyone is in the giving mood! We also know that a lot of guys choose this time of year to pop the big question! Yes, statistically more people get engaged during  Thanksgiving, Christmas and  New Year than any other time of the year. It's the season of love in so many different ways and we are excited to share your stories, so please feel free to email your beautiful engagement stories with us, just send the details to

With that said, some of you have been dreaming of that flawless, 2+ carat diamond ring set in platinum and guaranteed forever.  For those of you looking for something different though and not your standard clear, cut diamond set in gold or platinum there IS an alternative! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A huge trend now are colored gemstones. A few celebrities have spotted these rings like the Midnight Blue Sapphire stone the Duchess of Cambridge has, or Jessica Simpson's Blood Red Ruby engagement stone or remember J.Lo's Pretty Pink diamond when she was still with Ben Affleck?  There are soooo many options out there from rubies, amethysts, aquamarines, peridots, to gorgeous moisannite, morganite and iolite stones in peach and pink hues and even diamonds are now trending in chocolate, black, yellow, pink and even blue colors. I mean the possibilities are totally endless! So if you are the kind of girl who loves to break tradition, one of these rings may be the one for you!
