Just dropping in to let you all know that we have a couple of new V-Spots coming your way! The first one up is coming tomorrow.

You can check out our very first V-Spot feature with Photography by Valerie here.

And now for a completely unrelated photo with this post because all posts are better with pictures. :-) Fancy shoes for you.

Emarie does good

Any Project Runway fans out there?! If so, let me say that I'm one week behind, but the week before (*SPOILER ALERT* if you're also behind) one of my favorite models from the show was booted off. Emarie Wiltz!

Is it just me, does anyone else feel they should make the designers switch models every now and again. I'm all for loyalty, but this loyalty stuff doesn't make for great tv, lol. Especially on their new sister show, Models of the Runway. Not that we need more craziness on tv, but switching models would really make for a fun competition. For those of you who don't watch the show, let me explain how this works:

Each week the designers get to choose their models. The winning designer chooses first and then everyone else is in random order. The last designer has to choose between the last two models and the model left standing next to Heidi gets her classic German send-off, "auf Wiedersehen."

Why this means anything to the models is that this is a competition for them as well as they have their own prizes and exposure to fight for. However, after the first couple of episodes, the designers usually stick with the same model out of loyalty. Blah, blah, blah...I'm all for loyalty, but as the reality tv-junkie that I am, I need a little suspense and drama. They need to shake things up a bit. Again, especially for the sake of Models of the Runway.

EDIT: I hope I'm not ruining this for anyone who hasn't seen it, yet, but let's say that I JUST caught up with this week's episode and happiness ensues. :-) And just to clarify, not necessarily because of the outcome, but just because it was more interesting.

But I digress...back to why I originally started this post. Since the show, taped last year, Emarie has been off to do good for the world. She started a clothing line to bring attention the issues around the world called, Global Recess.

The mission, "To spread global responsibility through fashion." Check it out and grab a few items if you can or just spread the word. I love when people take their popularity and use it for good. A portion of each sales' proceeds go to an organization that fight human trafficking, the military use of children, and poverty among other things. Check out a few of the designs below:

Have a great weeked, everyone! And be inspired to do something good. :-)

Being a ring bearer is hard work, apparently! :-)

Concrete Floors...

Concrete flooring may not be the number one preference in your home, but this concept below from Transparent House is amazing! If I had concrete anywhere I would definitely want to consider something like this. If not for a home, maybe an office. If it's out of the budget, maybe this similar look could be accomplished with a sturdy paint. Something that wouldn't chip or wear off for awhile. Either way, love this.

Mega post of random inspiration!!

Over time, I have saved photos as inspiration for various things, but didn't take note of the source. This post is going to a be a dedication to those inspiring photos. I hope they can inspire someone else out there. However, if you recognize a photo as yours and would like for it to be removed or can send me the information to source it, please email me and I will do so immediately. Thanks and enjoy!

Pie on a Stick? What?!

Love it! Who wouldn't be able to resist one of these? Perfect for a party favor or just a fun treat.

Edit: Mitchell to Oliver's question in the comment section prompted me to do a little research to find out just where these creative pie pops came from. After much blog jumping (Erin Ever After to Lake Jane to Bash Eco Events to Bakerella) I finally landed on the pie pops original home.... Luxirare!! Apparently, it's already a pretty popular post. Check out the how-tos here and here. Happy baking! :-)

I need to know...

...does anyone remember this?!

This is no where related to weddings, lifestyles, etc., but I just had to ask. I've never heard of this song, but it was recently brought to my attention. Apparently, it was pretty popular back in the day, I completely missed it and now I'm completely fascinated. And because I had to research this further... :-)

From Wiki:
Jordy is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest singer ever to have a #1 charted single. He achieved this feat at the tender age of four-and-a-half with the song "Dur dur d'être bébé!" ("It's Tough to Be a Baby"). "Dur dur d'être bébé" was #1 for 15 weeks in France and was a dance hit across Europe, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia and Japan. It landed at #58 on the US charts.

However, in 1994, the French government banned six-year-old Jordy from television and radio, out of concern that he was being exploited by his parents. ...

The video...

And the performance...check Whitney Houston, Kenny G and others in the audience...

Bridesmaid Inspiration...

This bride's dress is gorgeous, but check out her bridesmaids. These dresses are so much fun. Different, yet still classic.

And from the same wedding shoot. You know I'm a sucker for a good bike shot, so this one must be posted.
