4 Easy Tricks to Get You Motivated for the Gym

The Final Fiesta: Texas Style

It has been a little over two weeks since my bride tribe and I packed our bags, put on our cacti shirts and traveled down to Austin, Texas for my #FinalFiesta. I’m pretty sure all six of us STILL daydream about the tacos. I mean, what’s not to like?! Great food. Southern hospitality. Guaranteed sunshine….

Inside the #Karolina&Co Bridal Shower

I’ve never been the type to swear by Pinterest boards and get really into themes. So when my mom came to me and suggested we do a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” themed bridal shower, I instantly said no to the overdone idea… Even though I love Audrey Hepburn as much as any other woman. The one…

DONUT Mess with Brides-To-Be

Do you ever feel like going into a donut shop, buying a dozen and just eating them in one sitting? Yeah, me neither.

Can’t Say “I DO” without You!

Perhaps the most exciting part of the wedding planning process is selecting your bridal party and thinking of creative ways to “propose” to them. I didn’t even have to exert much brain power on this one – my five best pals are my world and I can’t imagine marrying my better half without them at…

With a Venue, Along Came the Date

Picture your six-year-old self. Remember going to the ice cream shop on a hot, summer day and coming up to the vendor with exuberant energy, practically bouncing off of the walls because you couldn’t wait to get Cookie Dough on top of Superman with a dash of sprinkles?
