Say hello to my new {fave} pair of Valentino Rockstud heels, and also say hello to my existance!

Pardon my absence on the blog for the past couple of days. Been trying to play “catch up” as the world welcomes me back to the reality after months of planning this wedding of ours. It’s been a real rough week back…so my hubby (eek- yes I am officially a “wifey”) and I decided to take a MiniMoon to Santa Barbara this weekend just to get away from all the madness! Since we cannot go onto our real honeymoon until next year…we figured a small getaway will do for now. We are staying at our very favorite resort in Santa barbara..so be prepared for some massive instagram, tweet, & FB updates!

Will be back in action with my regular outfit posts + official pix from the wedding next week!

Have a great weekend loves!
