Take a leap of faith into the African Bush for an exotic honeymoon experience unlike any other! Many places in Africa offer an inconceivably beautiful mix of the African landscape with the unique culture and customs of those who live there. But for an incredible adventure, try the Thorntree River Lodge in Zambia, which is situated close to Victoria Falls in Mosi Oa Park–a romantic getaway in itself! Located on the Zambezi River, the Thorntree Lodge offers comfort a quality, while still letting you have a true African Bush experience. Covered verandas, rooms with all en-suite facilities and a fully-stocked bar are just a few of the amenities at this resort. They offer safaris on the backs of African elephants, guided tours to Victoria Falls, helicopter rides, bungee jumping and canoe safaris as well. Most meals are eaten over a communal dining table, African style, but private meals for you and your loved one can always be arranged!
Having had a lakeside wedding myself I’m definitely partial to them. This lakeside wedding recently captured by Shaun Menary Photography at Horseshoe Bay Resort caught my eye and then stole my heart. This is a stunning destination! Todd and Lauren tied the knot last spring at this romantic resort located right outside of Marble Falls, Texas. The palm-lined paradise was an ideal backdrop for this down to earth couple who exchanged vows lakeside followed by a gorgeous reception at sunset.
Well ladies – it’s Shop Talk Tuesday and this week we cannot stop gushing about these accessories by Jennifer Claire of Memento Designs. These little darlings are new to our store and it’s safe to say we are obsessed. Jennifer uses the perfect blend of new and old adornments, just the right hues of neutrals and brights and her combination of textures and metals is brilliant. The result – a collection of vintage-glam accessories that we are clearly in la, la, love with. If you’re in the Dallas area check our Events Calendar for upcoming trunk show featuring Memento November 6th!
