old-fashioned-wedding-candy-bar

If you’re as Pinterest obsessed as we are, chances are you’ve seen more than your fair share of candy bar photos lately. There’s definitely a reason they’re so popular. Whether you’re planning a birthday party, a baby shower, or looking for a fun wedding favor to serve up alongside cake, setting up a candy bar is a sweet solution. But before you get started on creating a candy bar of your own, there are a few tips to keep in mind. Here are my tips for how to style your sweet.

Pick A Color Theme

dadc34de86645f11cd591e9708073cd2

Picking your color palette is the first order of business when it comes to building your candy bar. Monochromatic candy bars are all over Pinterest these days, but you don’t have to limit yourself to a single hue. As long as it’s well thought out and aesthetically pleasing, feel free to choose a couple of colors or even a whole spectrum that goes well together.

Add Dimension

It’s important that both your candy and your jars have dimension. Choose a good range of shapes and sizes that will add depth and height to your spread. If your jars aren’t creating enough dimension on their own, try stacking several books under some of the jars (underneath your table cloth) to create height where you need it.

Mix Up Your Candy

It’s great if your candy bar looks pretty, but you also want it to be fun for guests to eat, too! Make sure you have a good mix of different types of candy—some chocolate, some hard candy, some gummies, etc. And don’t forget that online bulk candy stores tend to have the best variety to choose from at the best prices too.

Accessorize

Just like an outfit, accessories are an essential part of your candy table. Cute scoops, tongs, and baggies are often the perfect finishing touch. And of course, choose accessories that work with your design and color palette.

Best dresses for your body type!

Needing help to finding the perfect dress that fit’s YOUR body? As women ourselves, we know how tough it can be shopping for that “just right” dress! Well today we are here to help you with that! Read along for some helpful tips to finding that perfect dress made just for you!

Curvy like Kate Upton?
BlueBryanSteffy

Try it tailored. A-line shapes will downplay your lower half. Choose structured pieces with flare that isn’t too dramatic; an exaggerated trapeze shape won’t do you any favors. Whatever you wear on top, make sure it’s slim and cut close to the body to best balance a fuller-cut lower half.

Fuller Figured Like America Ferrera?

FP_5215823_BARM_TheIllusionist_Premiere_061610

Consider simplicity, subtle sexiness, and a little structure. Don draping shapes. While a structured look always works, pliable fabrics can be your best friend. You can wrap, twist, and gather a soft, stretchy fabric around your bust and booty! If you have the curve, why not show it in a conservative way?

Long Boyish Figure Like Taylor Swift?

Taylor-swift-1-not-promo,-gold-dress,-legs,-harry-styles,-red-carpet,-american-music-awards,-singer,-gold-dress,-slim-legsTo transform your slender physique into a more curvy shape, accentuate your middle and create the illusion of a fuller bust and hips. That means always define the waist! And don’t shy away from bold and intricate patterns. Florals, stripes, sequins and graphics will give depth and character to a silhouette, but remember to keep it in check.

Petite like the Olsen Twins?

So be sure to keep your look sleek and chic, and avoid very busy prints. You don’t want to get lost in a loud pattern. Mixing solids works, and subtle details can add personality, but stay away from things, like overly ornate embellishment. Doing these things will help you stand out above the crowd!

How To: Dress Your Bridesmaid’s Comfortably And Fashionably!

If you’re looking to have gorgeous and happy maids, as well as a pin-worth wedding, it’s time to learn the rules of picking bridesmaid dresses. Obviously your wedding dress takes the cake, but sticking your maids in bright blue puffy sleeved dresses is not the best way to ensure you stand out. Today we will give you the 411 on how to make sure that your bridesmaid’s are happy and comfortable! Not only will all parties be super happy (and maybe even save money), but your wedding will look even more amazing. Keep reading for the best tips on how to keep you and your bridesmaid’s happy!

HE03266BK-L1

When in doubt, opt for black! Black is no longer looked at as a dreaded color these day’s. It’s actually becoming more and more popular among bridesmaid’s! In fact, black goes with almost everything and is a super slimming and flattering shade on everyone! Whether you’re having a black tie event or a rustic country wedding, your maids will look absolutely stunning standing next to you. Find this dress here!

HE03717BL-L1
Look for an A-line silhouette. An A-line style dress is super flattering on almost everyone, as it flares out in the skirt portion and is not form-fitting at all. It’s a common silhouette, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from no matter where you’re searching for your bridesmaid dresses. Find this dress here!
 HE03539QP-L1
Keep it simple. Avoid bridesmaid dresses that have too much going on with them. Avoid crazy prints, blinding colors, beading, extra bows, sashes and bunchy fabric. These qualities are what give bridesmaid dresses a bad rep in the first place. Opt for classic styles and colors that won’t distract the attention of your guests. Remember that you’re the focal point of the day! Find this dress here!
 Untitled-1
Let your maids choose the style. Not only will your maids love you forever, but they’ll also look fabulous. Give them a specific color range and style and let them pick out their own dresses. They know their body type the best and will be able to choose a style that they feel most comfortable in. (Find the purple dress here and the red dress here!)

A perfect mix of classy and sexy! No one achieved this look better than Sport’s Illustrated model (and wife of musician John Legend) Chrissy Teigen. Chrissy wore a  baby pink lace dress by Zuhair Murad. This girl was ON POINT head to toe! We would have to vote her as best dressed of the night! If you want to be considered best dressed we suggest you try our White Lace Cutout Semi Sheer Long Dress! Sure to turn heads at any event!

Jennifer Aniston may have toned her look way down in “Cake,” the film for which she was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama, but her look at the 2015 Golden Globes is anything but.

Justin Bieber is kicking off 2015 in his underwear!

Yes, as in the Disney brother pop trio The Jonas Brothers! This specific campaign is def one that won’t soon be forgotten!

Some of you recognize this familiar face! Kellen Lutz is probably best known for his role as Emmett Cullen in the Twilight movie series. Did you know that Kellen started off his career as a model? Kellen spoke with People Magazine about the CK ad saying, “I started out modeling so modeling for Calvin Kein is the ultimate pinnacle,”. He also said “What more can you do than be on a billboard for something that you grew up thinking was super sexy and classy? It’s really prestigious and I love it.” Well we couldn’t agree more Kellen!

Now it’s not just ALL about the boy when it comes to these famous ad’s! That’s right Avatar actress Zoe Saldana posed for CK back in 2010 and made headlines with her gorgeous campaign. After all Zoe has already conquered the world of acting, it’s not surprising that she took on one of the world’s most famous modelling jobs. And Zoe has always loved CK! She told Huffington Post , “I like when you are able to assist your body to look amazing as opposed to replacing anything. That’s exactly what Calvin Klein Underwear Envy does,”.

Your New Year’s Eve Playlist!

Nothing says Happy New Year like bringing in the new year with an awesome party! And if your the one planning a New Year’s Eve party this year, you better make sure that you have some bumpin’ tunes! In today’s blog post we will list our top 5 songs that you cannot go without at your party! After all, what’s a New Year’s Eve party without some rockin music? See if one of your favorite song’s made the cut —->

5.) So maybe your 2014 wasn’t your personal best year? Well nothing can make you feel optimistic for 2015 like Taylor Swifts smash hit “Shake It Off!”. This song reminds you that no matter what (or no matter who) makes you feel low/down to just “shake it off” and move on! We have to say that this song def will bring in a good vibe this upcoming 2015!

 

4.) Long before the rise of EDM in mainstream media, Daft Punk’s “One More Time” held its own special place in house music history. Something about this feel-good tune brings people together on the dance floor and it’s perhaps the most fitting song for celebrating the turning of the year whether it’s with your closest friends or a group of complete strangers.

 

3.) Ellie Goulding’s Anything Could Happen is a great reminder of exactly as the song title says… ANYTHING could happen! Ellie reportedly told MTV news “I suppose it’s one of those songs where I sort of talk about bits of my childhood, but also about my friendship with this person, and, um, I suppose it’s a song of realization. It’s called ‘Anything Could Happen, so I’m hoping it will make people go out and propose to their girlfriends or go on that holiday they never ended up doing. I hope it will provoke positivity, as opposed to make people really sad.” What more inspiration could you want to bring on an awesome new year?

2.) Nothing brings on that good feeling like Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling”. This song gives an incredible great inspiration to the new year. Also makes you feel like you can do anything and everything you set your mind to! Plus this song can make ANYONE dance their cares away!

 

1.) I just cannot imagine a New Year’s Eve music playlist without Prince’s 1999. Of course, 1999 was quite sometime ago, this song never seems to age! It is always going to be a New Year’s classic! Make sure that you don’t forget this crowd pleaser when creating your 2015 playlist!

 

What song from above do you favorite the most? Tell us in the comment section below!
