Voting’s open for the Tri-Cities Pink Bride Cover Contest (you don’t have to live there to vote). See the five options here and vote for your favorite. I thought one of the five stood head and shoulders above the rest. But my lips are sealed so I do not influence your opinion. You can enter once a day through Tuesday.
Here’s something fun–a “reverse caption” photo contest. My friend Dee Phipps at Sublimeology announced it yesterday. Here’s how it works: You submit an interesting photo and they will write a caption. When all entries are captioned, voting is then opened to the public. The top three vote getters win a free, professionally created logo, social media icon set, or Facebook cover image (your choice). So dig through your photos for one that is crying out for a caption, and submit it to the contest here.
Wedding Dress Trends for 2013. The current edition of Brides Magazine reveals the five wedding gown trends for spring 2013. They are: (1) Color, (2) Peplums (bodices that poof out at the hips, making your waist look smaller or hips bigger, depending on your body shape), (3) Lace Nouveau (i.e. traditional lace with done in a modern way), (4) Portrait Backs (these are nice looking–the guests get a treat during the ceremony. I am working on a Pinterest board here), and (5) Transformers (gowns with removable skirts, trains, or capes for better moveability at the reception). While the designer styles tend to be out of reach financially for diy-budget brides, the features are not. Watch the sideshow of 32 trendy fashions here, then set your sites on finding an affordable style that features your favorite.
Deal of the day. Up to 90% off Szul gemstone jewelry through the weekend (translation: very little time left!), with prices start at around $17.00. Take a look here. Note: If you run across this post after the sale ends, the same link will take you to current specials.
Also, don’t forget the Sephora giveaways begin tomorrow. (Once-in-a-lifetime experiences, designer goods, and more.) Plus, each day they are giving away a free deluxe gift with every order over $25. Combine it with a sale or offer here and you can save nicely. (Tip: While you are there, look for the deep discounts on Color of the Year collections).
