My favorite balloon lady, Jihan from Geronimo Balloons, is painting the town red and full of hearts just in time for Valentine's Day. Could you imagine having these hand-delivered to your front door? If you're in LA, you can pre-order a special Valentine's Day balloon by January 27th to be delivered on February 14th to your sweetheart's doorstep {or by priority mail in other parts of the country}. You can see her on her balloon adventures in this super cute video too... — Joy

The girls over at Style Me Pretty asked if I'd put together a little buying guide based on one of my favorite real weddings they've featured. So, inspired by the wedding of Elsie Larson from A Beautiful Mess, here are a few pieces that can be used for wedding day and for every day. You can see more details over at Style Me Pretty! — Joy

a flip book proposal...

Last week, Lindsey & Jonathan's gorgeous wedding was featured over at Style Me Pretty. Not only was the wedding amazing, but extra fun for me because I know Lindsey from my time in Philly when I freelanced for Urban Outfitters, and she was a buyer there. Before her wedding, we reconnected over email and I congratulated her on her recent engagement, and she had the best response ever... "Joy, this guy changed my life!" So, I'm so happy to share this little video that the guy who changed Lindsey's life {and now husband} made of their engagement. The flip books were given out at their wedding and this captures the actual proposal! Congrats guys! — Joy
