I collaborated with to talk about the wedding process and some tips I can offer after going through it for the last year!

Wedding Registry: This is one of the first things you will do. Pick your TWO favorite stores (some people do three) and I would do this within the first month of engagement. Choose the things for a home that you wish to create as a married couple. I know for me, it’s important to make cooking a daily habit. As a blogger, I work from home and I do have the time before my fiance comes home to whip up a meal. My registry was filled with cooking equipment, pots, pans and tons of things I didn’t even know I would need. Thanks to my mom!

Shopping on 5th in SOREL

Ever since moving uptown, I’ve become a seriously dangerous shopper. I’m in the area where there are the most unbelievable stores and even if you’re not looking to buy it’s so worth just window shopping. Fifth Avenue is a never ending avenue of shops, fun lunches and just beautiful sightseeing in NYC, if you’re in comfortable shoes. At this point in the year, the weather is so beautiful, there is nothing better than walking past every store and doing some seasonal shopping. For a day like this, it’s imperative to be wearing super comfortable shoes because there is nothing worse than having to stop because of you’re feet! Forever I was doing that with my older sister and she wanted to kill me, she wouldn’t shop with me anymore. It’s been a month now since I’ve had these SOREL boots and she hasn’t heard a peep out of me!

I’ve seen these boots on so many people in NYC, I truly believe they were made for the everyday New Yorker. We walk everywhere and need a shoe that can help us through the worst winters and keep us comfortable. I love that the colors on this boot include all the neutrals so it’s easy to pair them with almost anything. I loved the idea of pairing them with these plaid trousers because I honestly would never think to combine the two. I’m glad I did, I think it really showcases how these boots can be styled with prints and a pant that isn’t necessarily full length. If you’re that girl on the go and you endure these brutal winters in NYC or anywhere else, I highly suggest investing in a pair of SOREL boots. They’re practical, beyond cute and you style them from basic to trendy while being comfortable. Head over to TheCut to read more!

Brandon came along to one of my blogger events. He usually never does, so when he did, it had to be photographed.

And this is when we got our baby, Dylan!!!

I figured since I’m getting married next Saturday, I’d tell you a little about the guy I’m marrying!

This is Brandon, he’s the funniest person in the world. He’s only two years older than me and we grew up one town over from each other but we only met when we were introduced in CABO, Mexico randomly. Funny how those things work out. We’ve been together for four years and he proposed to me at year three. I know all the things I’m about to say are so cliche but true. He’s my best friend, we do everything together and I’m really lucky that I found someone who accepts who I am and my craziness. As a girl, whose a Gemini, I’m all over the place, my moods are up and down and no matter what he’s there for me. He’s complete opposite. He never gets mad, he takes things so lightly (I wish I could be more like that), he never gets jealous and has more friends than anyone I know. When people say opposites attract, I have to agree. We are so opposite and we really balance each other. He pushes me to be more social and go out more often where as I help him relax and enjoy nights in. We decided to be engaged for a year (which is crazy that it’s already wedding time) and we also decided to have a destination wedding. We both leave next Tuesday for Miami, Florida. There is no specific reason for why we chose there, we just knew we wanted to have a destination wedding that wasn’t too difficult for the people we love to get there. I decided to do a mini interview on him below:

Yesterday, I started going through my sweaters and turtlenecks and organized based on what I was going to start wearing more often heading into this new season. Since I’ll be gone next Tuesday for two weeks I’m expecting to come home to Winter so I wanted to have everything prepared. This turtleneck is one of those pieces that I will probably wear way too often. Simple, black, long sleeve, not too heavy and can pretty much be paired with anything. I decided to throw on oversize trousers with it and my Manolo camo heels. I’m such a hat girl and I’m excited to introduce this new baby into my collection! Love the color.
