Well hello there! How’s it going? I truly apologize for my absence, I’ve let the blog get away from me these last few weeks. Life has gotten so busy, I have literally had something every weekend and there is so much in those weekends that I want to share! Being part of a wedding is no joke, there is so much that goes into it. I am finally past the bridal shower and the bachelorette party (both were successes) and now all we have is the wedding trip, but still in-between these two weeks before we leave I have another wedding and a baby shower! Awwww I just want to be lazy all day and blog. Life was so crazy that I even forgot about my own blogaversary, we are 3 now!
I just wanted to let you know that I am still here. I have been doing most of my work lately on my Instagram so if you don’t follow me you should so we can stay in touch! Follow @the.B.Law. I also wanted to tell you about what I want to tell you about to hold myself accountable (did that sentence even make sense?). I will tell you in the normal Brittany fashion, in list form!… My bffffff and I have list issues, like SERIOUS issues. We makes lists for everything, then read them to each other. We even put on our to do list to make ANOTHER to do list… #freaks
Anyways, things that I want to fill you in on:
- Bridal Shower
- Bachelorette Party
- 3rd Blogaversary
- Bible Study
- Vacation Packing (dreading by the way)
- Catch up on style!
I think that is it… okay bye! Miss you!
Dressing up for a wedding is so fun! You get to wear a dress, heels, do good make up, and actually style your hair in more than just curls, if you want. I love it! I think I also like the fact that I get to buy a new dress. I already have pictures in all of my dresses so obviously I can’t wear any of the ones in my closet to a wedding! Duh! The things I tell myself to buy new clothes…
I had been thinking for awhile what I should wear to my brother’s and new sister’s wedding. I had no ideas but knew when I saw the right dress I would know. I had come across a red dress at Target that I really liked, but thought I shouldn’t try it since it was red and I have red hair. Then my bffff tried it on and sent me a picture. Every time I went to Target I would see this dress. I started calling it the “lamp shade dress”, you’ll see why. Finally I went into Target again and decided to try it on. The Target Cartwheel app. had a coupon for 40% off dresses. Trying it on I LOVED it! I had the idea of wearing it with camel tan heels and gold accessories. After confirming it looked okay with my hair with about three friends, I bought it.
I knew exactly which shoes I wanted to pair with it. I had actually bought them before and returned them for the black pair. They are a camel tan peep-toe platform with a thick heel and an ankled strap. So cute and SO comfy! I wore them for 7 hours on the day of the wedding and was perfectly fine.
I went to find a necklace about two days before the wedding, I knew I just needed something gold so it wouldn’t be too hard to find. As usual I went to Charming Charlie because that store never fails. I found a gold necklace that had the same detail idea as the dress, fringe-ish. I also found a camel tan clutch on sale for $8.99! I ended up using it the entire weekend (but forgot to hold it in my picture, oops.).
I felt very happy with my choice for this wedding. Now I just need a new dress for one of my best friend’s bridal shower, bachelorette party, and wedding… I told you, it is wedding season!

One of the reasons I had been looking forward to the wedding I attended on Saturday was because I was so excited about the outfit I was going to wear! I picked this out like over a month ago, ever since I saw a picture on Pinterest. The color combination was so cute that I was determined to recreate it. I love recreating outfits from Pinterest, it makes me feel so accomplished, and it is fun to make it your own way too. The dress in the picture was more of a coral, I however found a more hot pink shift dress, and get this, it was only $20 from one of my go to stores G Stage. To find the mint/tealish accessories I went straight to my go to accessory store, Charming Charlie. I am obsessed with this store and really should not be allowed to go in by myself. I had no worries about finding the right color I needed for my necklace and clutch, this store is accessory heaven! I even found more than one option and almost couldn’t decide. I ended up with the perfect match though and at a good price, the necklace was $12 (I believe or around there), and the clutch was $25! Of course I had a coupon too- hooray for smart shopping! As for my heels, I stuck with the best pair of heels I have ever owned. I was in one of my best friend’s weddings (you may know her from Glitter It Gold) in August and we got the best heels! They are beige heels by Levity from DSW and has been the best money I have ever spent on shoes, and they were only $50 or $60! I wore them in her wedding, to our next friend’s wedding, to the bridal shower for the wedding this past Saturday, AND to the wedding as well. They are just so comfortable and match with so much!
Anyways, I was super excited about how my outfit came out so enjoy!

Our group of five just recently celebrated our second bachelorette party. The second out of the five of us is getting married in a week.
The first bachelorette party was in Palm Springs, this one was in Pasadena. We started the day off with a pole dancing class. That is so hard. I was sore for almost five days and my feet still have bruises on the tops of them. We thought we were doing good until the instructor told us to watch our faces. Our concentration on trying to make our awkward bodies sexy resulted in very ugly faces. They were a mix of concentration and pain. Honestly how can you make a “sexy push-up” sexy? Sexy or not, it’s still a push up, and your knees are digging into wood floor. We looked like five unsexy girls, with no athletic strength, whose faces looked like we smelled something weird. Nevertheless it was fun and an awesome workout.
After pole dancing we drove down to Pasadena. My roomie is in the wedding so she was in charge of the balloons for the pole dancing class. We had to bring the balloons to the hotel next, so she and I drove from Chino Hills to Pasadena with twelve balloons in the backseat. Not only were the balloons obstructing her vision of driving, her passenger side mirror is shattered from someone hitting it and leaving. I had to be her eyes for her to get into the lanes on my side. The balloons kept creeping up to the front seat and trying to stick to our hair. So there we were, driving half blind, with a car full of balloons, and both of our hair sticking up on end. Again, we were pretty sexy.
By the time we got to Pasadena we were dying from malnourishment since we had only breadsticks all day, and the smell of the balloons was making us sick. I googled a McDonalds because it is fast and cheap. Perfect! It was literally a mile away… Okay we should be pulling up on it right now… It should be on this corner… Why is there just a big building on this corner… GOOGLE LIED! We both felt like vomiting by this time and dinner wasn’t for another two and a half hours. Next I looked up a Burger King. This one was a little over a mile away. We were so scared that it wasn’t going to be there anymore too. We found it though! We saw the big sign of the BK Lounge. I got a double cheese burger and she got a ten piece chicken nugget. We literally moaned after every bite. It was one of the best meals we had ever had. Instantly I felt better and ready to take on the night.
We found the hotel and got ready and all that. Luckily we were all in the same room minus the bride. Dinner was good at Pops Champagne Bar where my roomie and I successfully finished a full bottle of wine together. After dinner was the usual bar hopping and DDing (Dancing and Drinking). At last it was 2 A.M. and the last call already passed. It was time to go back to the hotel. We looked up where we were, only 0.6 miles from the hotel. One of the girls asked if we should call a cab. One of the other girls, T, and I looked at each other and both said no it’s not that far, we can walk and make it (clearly we were both broke and didn’t want to pay for a cab). Half way into this journey back to the hotel, T and I were dying. All the other girls had comfy heels except for her and I. Our pumps were killing us. She wanted to take hers off and I told her no! Just like she told that last bride, A, at her bachelorette, we are better than that! WE DO NOT TAKE OUR SHOES OFF! She and I just walked slow behind the rest of the girls. Eventually we kept getting farther and farther behind. We were down to practically a crawl. The other girls stopped and waited for us. They started cheering us on like we were running a marathon and were almost to the finish line. We felt like crying our feet hurt so bad. The hotel was in view though. The second we walked into the lobby we kicked our shoes off. It was the second time I was in heaven that night, first a burger, now walking barefoot in the Hilton lobby.
It was time for bed. We got in pjs and drank some water and Gatorade to avoid a hang over and in minutes the lights were out. About a half hour later I heard a weird noise. I was sleeping next to my roomie and asked what it was, she didn’t know. It kind of sounded like a wrapped. All of a sudden I heard a cork pop, then someone drinking from the bottle. I looked up and saw A putting the bottle down and get back into bed and fall asleep. What the heck! In the morning I asked her if she remember popping bottles in her sleep and she had no idea!
All in all, the trip was a success. Two bachelorette parties down, three to go. May the tragicness continue and get better with each one.
