Why I Chose to Have a Wedding Coordinator…

Like I said in my last post (it’s been awhile I know!) I’m getting married September 16, 2018. We are getting married on the beach then moving into the hotel restaurant for the reception. 

What does my Wedding Coordinator do?

My Wedding Coordinator takes care of most of my wedding honestly. When we first secured the venue she sent me the list of vendors that I will be using (cake, flowers, DJ…) which all come in the price of my wedding. 

When the wedding gets closer she will help me get in contact with these vendors and make sure I have all my ducks in a row. 

For the ceremony, they set out all the chairs in white or brown (my choosing). Also, the arch which will be covered in flowers and greenery. 

On the wedding day, I hand her any decorations that I would like set up in the venue and they place them out for me. They also decorate with linens in the colors of my choosing. Of course they help get the cake set up and placed on the table with our cake server and cutting set that we have purchased. 

In other words… once my hairstylist and my makeup artist are finished and I get my dress on, all I have to do is show up to my beautiful wedding. Completely anxiety and worry free! 

Are you getting married? Would you use a Wedding Coordinator? Let me know in the comments below! 

XOXO,

Why I Cancelled Birchbox

As the title says… I have decided to cancel my Birchbox. There are many reasons behind this decision. You may be thinking, “it’s only $10” that $10 adds up as you keep being let down by the boxes. Here’s why I cancelled: 1. Inconsistency. The Birchbox subscription is VERY inconsistent. I can get a half way decent box one month then get a horrible box the next month. 

2. Disappointment. When I do get that good box I will think okay they’re getting better, I can’t wait for next month. Then what happens next month? It’s a huge disappointment, I’ll get another bad box. 

3. Way to many hair products. I signed up for the beauty/makeup products it promises. I hardly ever get a makeup item. All I get is loads of hair products and they’re adding up quickly. 

4. The $10 is a waste if the products don’t leave me happy!

I wanted to like Birchbox so much but I just couldn’t bring myself to like it enough to keep it. 

I hope this helped you if you’re a subscriber or thinking of subscribing, thanks for reading! 

XOXO, 

Ashley

NuMe

So I’ve seen this company called NuMe all over social media. I was like what is NuMe? They sell curling irons, wands, straighteners and sets. I’m like OH MY GOD you are beautiful… looking on the website. 

Yes you can go on and see a straightener for $130. But, when you first enter the site if you enter your email you can get $50 OFF YOUR FIRST PRODUCT! That is an amazing deal! 

That’s cheaper than most high-end hair accessories. These are great products, my mom wanted to buy a straightener off their site already 🙂 

Here’s the link to their site (affiliate):
