My Dream Wedding

Once in a while right in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a Fairytale

I encountered this one site online called Archive Rentals and while I was browsing around their site, it made me wonder and imagine what my wedding is going to look like. Not that I have a guy or wedding lined up, but a girl can dream, right?


Archive Rentals is a specialty rental company and event design house which provides a lot of cute and antique furniture and pieces for your special events like parties and weddings. Their services and products range from cute pastel things, wedding furniture rentals, to rustic and vintage rentals. They also help design your event concept and experience so that your guests can feel your imagination about that dream event! 

My dream wedding has always been those by the beach, and lately wedding at the barn, too! While browsing through their site, I did see some inspirations of decoration and rentals to bring my wedding imagination to live! 

WHIMSY NAUTICAL 

Whimsy Nautical is definitely my favorite! It's a combination of cute and romantic. Look at the nautical stage and the flower details! Isn't it adorable? I'm also loving the boat, napkin, chair, and bar details. They are all so cute, unique, and most importantly well-put together. This will definitely be my dream wedding! The great thing is, if you don't like any of the things above, Archive Rentals have a wide range of more selections that you can pick to replace it! 


WEDDING AT THE BARN 


 


Although I got enough corn and farm spending my college years in Iowa, I think wedding in the Barn or by the Barn is actually quite cute. When I saw this picture in their website, I was really inspired! Just put a couple of cute and rustic things from Archive Rentals and you'll have your cute little antique wedding. Check out this rustic event rental ideas board, get inspired, and pick the items you think can bring your dream wedding come to live!

Product Review: jimmyCASE Wallet Case


I have been looking for a new case for my phone. As I am living in the city, having a phone case that can hold my CTA pass is a must. I hate needing to open my wallet in my purse in a hurry to get my bus pass. So I have been hiding my bus pass inside my phone case. I finally found my perfect match! jimmyCASE's new wallet phone case product is not only trendy and elegant, but also super practical with the cute little pocket at the back of the phone which allows me to slip in my bus pass; That way when the bus comes, I only need to scan my phone or simply get the card out of the pocket and scan it.

Their store offers a variety of wallet cases for iPhones and Android. Ssst.. They even got cases for iPhone 7! Since my phone is an iPhone 6s, I picked this iPhone 6s Wallet Case  


It looks like besides wallet cases, jimmyCASE also sells slimJIMMY, which is a slim fit wallet which will fit any of your tiny pockets!



When I got this package in the mail and opened it, I can tell it's a strong product. The material looks strong and sturdy. My dad was totally jealous when I got it, I will get him one soon!



My Experience so far... 

After using it for a couple of days, I can say that this is a good quality product. Even though my phone has fell a couple of times, my phone and the case's wood have not chipped at all. The website mentions that the wood is made of Genuine Mahogany, which explains why it looks so elegant and strong. The fabric elastic that holds my card are still tight, the fabric has not ripped or pile. The sides of the phone has Full-Frame Protection and are made of rubber, which really protects the phone whenever it falls. The material is thick and sturdy; so don't worry about chipping the corners of the phone or the case at all. The holes for camera, charger, and headphones are well made so you will not get trouble with charging at all.




I love the expensive and natural look of the case. The wood, I am totally in love with!! The olive color of the elastic matches the wood color, and it looks great with any outfit this Fall season. jimmyCASE offers a number of other colors of the elastic ranging from bright pop colors to darker ones, solid colors to stripes. Pick all that you want!

Check out their product here http://thejimmycase.com/ for awesome and super functional wallet cases that you'd like to own. As a bonus their products are handmade in the USA! So you can really trust the quality here!

Bag Hunt: Farbod Barsum


“Behind every successful woman is a fabulous handbag”


That’s what people say. You can dress yourself with a t-shirt and ripped jeans, but one awesome purse will do you great favor. I’ve never been that big into purses and bags, but lately after looking around other bloggers’ and instagrammers’ picture, I have started scanning around for bags and purses.
Through my blog, I came across Farbod Barsum, a Beverly Hills based design house that manufactures exotic skin handbags and accessories. They sell exotic bags and purses and offers a great selection of items made of ostrich skin to genuine snakeskin handbags. Their products are made in the U.S. and their products are sourced responsibly, which is great! We get the coolness, and it’s still environmentally friendly! (About Farbod Barsum)



So I browsed into their products and found that a lot of their products are really designed for fashionable career women. As a young professional woman/ fashion blogger, their product line that interests me the most was their clutch. I’m not big into huge purses that can carry books and laptop, but since I normally only carry my phone, wallet, and keys, these clutches would do me the work. Why is it special to me? I think these products look very elegant and fashion forward and it seems to be designed for those empowered and strong women out there.


Check out some of these products:


I am super loving this one clutch. It’s something that I can wear in any season: summer or winter. I love the color block detailing here; the black, grey, and white are really interesting. It just pleases the eyes. It is totally something that I can wear to the office or out and about.



Guess what? Navy Blue is IN this Fall! If you are aiming for the season’s trend, I bet this clutch will do you the magic. The color and shape are just classic and ageless. You can wear it any time, any year, and you would never be out of fashion.

 

Now.. If you want to go more eccentric and all out, I think this super metallic blue clutch is the answer. The color just pops! Totally something I would wear for a night out or even formal occasion. Stocking up for your holiday parties? This clutch maybe a great companion to your party outfit!



And girls never get enough of Swarovski! This Swarovski decorated clutch is just amazing. It is something that I can totally wear to special occasion and parties. Lovely design and details isn’t it?

Check out more clutch, bag, and accessories collection in Farbod Barsum! They have a great amount of awesome stuff. Note that it is specially designed and made here in the U.S. with responsible care to Earth. Definitely a store to check out!
