I've moved!

So I guess I finally outgrew this blog... I'm not taking it down as a reminder of how far I've come. I would say in the past two years it's been quite the journey!! If you would like to continue to follow me on this awesome path come on over to the new and improved blog!!

My Work : Under Construction

So, as a few of you may have noticed I've been tardy around here. I am a bad blogger and I neglect to keep this updated regularly. All I can say is I'm trying! I often feel like I'm being pulled in so many direction I don't know whether I should just give up and sink or kick like hell and swim!

If you're interested in keeping up with me in real time and see real updated work, the best place to catch it is on my fan page on Facebook or (in real twitter addict fashion) on Twitter. Be warned! I have twitter linked to my personal page so if you're a friend who gets too much of me, no feelings will be hurt if you "hide" my updates ;) I tend to tweet about everything (dogs, cats, kids, traffic lights, food, highs and lows) but you could potentially miss out on something really good, so check my page often!! I'm also limiting a lot of my friend requests to people I know... so if I deny you because I don't KNOW you, it's not personal. BUT!! There is *always* a BUT!! You can keep up with me on my fan page which is open to everyone! Updates are different and more business orientated but you get the best of both worlds if you follow fan page and twitter. Sheesh, does this even make sense anymore??

Well. One thing that prompted this all was I received some great advice by a few close confidants and mentors. I'm really going to make an effort to pull my act together! I have been so lucky that I've been half as successful as I have been with as little effort as I've put forth over the past year... which makes me think that if I fully dedicate myself to this "project" I could potentially do really well! So with this in mind I'm going to kick my feet and swim through this mess and really come out shiny and new real soon.

You will start seeing some changes real soon and hopefully you all will like it!

Loves and hugs - Yvonne

The People : Monday Weddings :)

You didn't need to ask if this group had a case of the Mondays... and if they did I would love to see how Friday night rolls! From the moment I stepped into the La Jolla Rec Center and heard the soundtrack from GLEE blasting I knew it was going to be a good day. When they started busting moves and serenading on the beach all else was forgotten! Seriously, Glee had nothing on this group of friends as they watched Errin and Rachel say their "I do's".

I am not usually an emotional person but I may or may not have shed a tear or two here and there. I wish you two the best of luck and my all your Mondays be half as happy as this one was! Thank you for letting me participate, you left an impression on my soul.

Love, Yvonne :)

If you can name the song they serenaded the bride & groom with I will shoot your engagement for free!

This lady meant B.U.S.I.N.E.S.S.

The Places : Vingettes goes Shabby Chic

I had got schooled over the weekend in home decor! Lori from Vignettes Antiques welcomed the queen of Shabby Chic, Rachel Ashwell!

Ladies (and a few gents) came from near and far, some even flew in from San Francisco, to meet this anything but shabby home decor icon. As queues started forming Rachel and her lovely staff took their time speaking about the new line of Shabby Chic Couture. Designers and home decor enthusiasts from around the area gushed over her luxurious fabrics and beautiful designs. It was enough to get this self proclaimed decor-less momma looking at things in a new light!

Lori and Ms Ashwell strike a pose outside the store front!

I need to get the info about the rose infused marshallows (they were to die for!)

Rachel with her beautiful staff from the Santa Monica location, Kristina & Janis. These girls are FUN and would love to talk shabby chic with you!!

This is for my dear mum. She is a HUGE fan and very jealous I got to meet one of the inspirations behind her store in the UK!
