Move over OPI, Essie has taken over! Sometimes I have to cover my eyes when walking by the beauty section, otherwise my collection would grow daily. If the temptation wasn’t bad enough, now you can match your polish to your wedding flowers. I love it!!

Happy Monday pretties!

One of my all time favorite episodes of friends is the one where Ross gets a spray tan. If you haven't seen it, your missing out, CLICK to watch. Spray tans have come a long way from the horror stories of people looking like Willy Wonka's Oompa Loompas. Today, spray tans are becoming less scary and more chic. However, getting a custom spray tan is the way to go. People tend to opt for the spray tan booths which are less expensive but they do not have the ability to get certain parts of your body ex: inside legs, your sides, and don't forget your bum crease (sorry but it's true).

Whether it's for prom, a wedding, or just to make yourself feel better, more women (and men!) are getting spray tans. All Things Glow in downtown Dublin, OH at Shamrock Salon. offers an all natural, anti-aging, custom spray tan!!

1. All of the products, made by Infinity Sun, are all-natural and work as an anti-aging agent. No streaks, no Oompa Loompa orange, and it won't come off on your clothes the next day! Also, they have a Glow on the Go product line that's great for quick tanning solutions.

2. These products have been featured in several magazines such as O (Oprah's magazine), Life & Style, and Ok!. Also, several presenters at the Emmy's were sprayed down with Infinity Sun products.

3. Many celebrities, like Britney Spears and Jessica Alba, swear by Infinity Sun's products. Spears even had them on her Circus tour!

4. I know what you're thinking. . .if A-list celebrities are getting sprayed with this stuff, it must cost a fortune. Nope! The cost of getting your glow on is only $30! Keep in mind that, with correct exfoliation before getting sprayed and religious use of moisturizer after a spray tan can last up to two weeks!

5. Wedding coming up? Group discounts are available! For parties of 6+, All Things Glow will come to you to spray you all down and the bride is FREE!

For all you ladies out their who could play the lead role in 27 dresses in real life, I have an amazing site for you. Newlymaid is a website that takes your old bridesmaid dresses and gives you a little black dress! Let’s face it, as hard as brides try to find a dress you will “wear again” it hardly ever happens. Those dresses that are just hanging in your closet collecting dust can be recycled or donated by Newlymaids and in return you will be looking killer in a new LBD.

 How it works: Newlywed accepts dresses from all manufactures in the bridal industry. The dress must be in good quality condition. They will send you a pre-paid mailer to send in your old dress. Once the dress is received and inspected, you will be emailed the special pricing. Once you log on to your newlymaid accound you can begin shopping for your new fabulous black dress. More details available here.

It seems the one thing that all brides tend to stress about is the dreaded bridesmaid dress. They are either worried about the price, finding a style that everyone will look good in, or something they think their bm will wear again. I’ve yet to see it but the styles are getting better every year. Here are a few of my favorites if your still looking…
I love the colors of these

If your wedding dress doesn’t make you feel like a million dress, you need to keep looking. There are many styles and trends to choose from and worth the hunt. One of my favorite trends has been the belt or sash. There are so many different styles and it is another way to make your dress your own. I fell in love with a belt before I even found my dress. Some belts are permanently made into the dress while others are removable. Mine was removable, I did not add it until the reception which really changed the feel of my dress and I loved it! We have a feeling this trend is going to stick around for awhile. Even if you feel like it’s not you, give it a try when your trying on dresses, it won’t hurt and you might surprise yourself.
Here are a few of my favs.

A way to make a small waist look even smaller and who doesn’t want that!

If you aren’t into the crystals or beading, you can always try a satin sash as well.

The 2011 wedding season is just around the corner! We will be showing you some of the 2011 wedding trends for the next few posts.

Get ready to show some leg ladies, short bridal dresses are a hot trend for 2011. If you haven’t already noticed almost all the designers have now added short wedding dresses into their collections for next year. Don’t worry if you or your families heart is set on the traditional wedding gown it’s okay, you can now do both! Having a dress change for the reception is not only fun but a little more practical, if you love to dance it makes it much easier to move in.

Here are a few of my favs!
