With glitter being everyone's new favorite color and so many of us (myself included!) being candidates for Shiny Object Syndrone, these most spectacular cakes featured in the Winter Issue of Martha Stewart Weddings had me seeing stars!
In my book, edible glitter and cakes topped with sparklers are a must for any celebration!
I'm also a huge fan of this high-shine "karat" cake. Can you believe this shine comes from brushing on a mix of luster dust and vodka? That alone sounds so amazing!
My mom always told me, "Don't let anyone dull your sparkle!" Well, I find that a nearly impossible task with this four-tiered cake featuring sugared bling. A real gem.
Be sure and see the all of the glitzy desserts in the Winter Issue of Martha Stewart Weddings on newstands today.

All my bags are packed...I'm ready to go...Salt Lake City, here I come!
I can't believe it has already been ONE year since my first Alt Summit as I attended with truly rookie blogger status. While I very much still feel like a rookie, going back to Alt is far less overwhelming this time around as I can hardly wait to see so many friends IN PERSON that I have only been able to email, text and Skype with since last January.
I have been prepping with outfits, business cards and extra battery packs so I can drink up all of the ridiculous inspiration, creativty, laughs and pretty things! Yes, my cup will runneth over..
I can hardly wait to share all of the Alt-goodness with you and here are a few things at the top of my list:
So as you can see, I will be distracted and focused all at the same time for the rest of the week! I'll recap as soon as I can but until then, be sure and follow me on Instagram for some snippets along the way - or check out my rookie visit from 2013 here.
Meet Katherine and Jordan.
Now, take a deep breath and embrace the perfect combination of old Hollywood charm with a modern twist.
Ritz-Carlton. Seven layers of tulle. Swarovski crystals. Vintage jewelry. Chandeliers with cascading Quenn Anne's Lace flowers. Gold accents. Candlelight. A hot pink electric violin. (Yes! the bride's BFF, Sarah Charness, renowned electric violinist brought down the house!)
Absolutely stunning and the most amazing celebration of love, family and friends in the heart of Miami! Enjoy!

I heart letterpress.

I love that you can pick up to two different ink colors to create your own perfect color combination on this beautiful 100% cotton stock in either 110 lb or 220lb weight! It's definitely worth checking out the entire collection here.
