First things first Douglas and I did a thing on Friday, February 12, 2021!

I was asked by someone who knows me very well "Chica, why in the world are you getting married on Satan's holiday weekend, AKA Valentine's Day?" My response - "It is Chinese New Year!" LOL "OK that makes sense now!" 

Since who knows when we can have a fun, dancing party and we already missed October, we decided the next best date was Chinese New Year. We had a great time and are so thankful to have such great friends that helped make everything possible. 

The Venue:

 The Upper Room - was are beautiful venue - if you are looking for an intimate place to have an event give them a call.  -  


The Photographer:

 Grey Thompson from Color of Grey - my wonderful and talented friend who always takes amazing photos and I so dislike getting my pictures done.  


The Food:

Cindy Farrel - Simply Chic Cakes -  Made our delicious Chinese themed cake - it was a lemon, lavender and blackberry cake. You can contact her at 864.230.0358

Asia Pacific - Our favorite Chinese place on Pleasantburg knocked it out of the park with egg rolls, Chinese stir-fried veggies, and chicken fried rice.  If you haven't been there, go check them out. Their menu is going to be very different than what you are used to.  -

La Especial on Wade Hampton -  They are my go-to place for tres leche cake! 


The Hair:

 Michele Dunn - My badass hair dresser who always seems to get what I need without me having to say much. I felt like I had so much hair and it looked so simple but cool. Douglas had to help take out all the layers and the bobby pins! LOL  


The Flowers:

Rachel Vann - Realtor, Artist, Salsa Dancer and now she can add Floral Designer to her list of skills. She created beautiful bouquets for Ashly and I and a last minute (like literally an hour before the wedding) swag for the arch. Due to the weather, we had to move the wedding inside. Since it was so last minute I didn't to try to figure out how to add some color or ask someone to do something. Rachel said "Chica, you can not get married under a brown arch! I will be back in an hour!" She was and it looked beautiful!   


The Officiant:

Tina  - was our officiant, helped clean up, is always there for support. It has been a God send to have worked with her all of these years.

The Crew:

The Thompsons  - helped us set up, tear down, ran the event and managed the bar! 

Angela  - part of the decorating and teardown crew and reminded me to breathe. 

Liz  - yummy desserts

Jenny and Kris (Christmas Light Ladies)  - for picking up the food

Brandy - for helping back up and help get the kid ready!


So thank you to everyone and here is to a new journey!
Keep Douglas in your prayers. LOL

Happy March! 


Product of the Month

ONLY $30!

Available for shipping or pickup!


FOR: Normal to dry skin to hydrate eye area

.5 oz - The Tri-Peptide Eye Cream opens the eye zone for a refreshed, youthful appearance. It softens skin and firms the eye area, stimulates circulation and improves tissue strength while encouraging healthy cellular skin functions.

  • Lessens the appearance of wrinkles
  • Prevents water loss from the skin
  • Soothes and calms


  • Use morning and evening as a nice hydrating eye product.
  • To apply, pat lightly on the eye area and allow it to penetrate the skin.


  • Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil replenishes and restores the skin with nourishing fatty and amino acids to increase moisture retention.
  • Squalane is a major component of human skin surface lipids (or oils). It helps keep skin soft and healthy, and its antioxidant capabilities help protect from the harsh effects of the environment. It facilitates the permeation of the active ingredients and prevents the loss of water from the skin, improving skin appearance and health.
  • Caffeine stimulates and promotes healthy detoxification.
  • Jojoba Seed Oil is an emollient plant oil that has healing qualities. It penetrates the stratum corneum rapidly to reduce water loss. It is quickly absorbed and is excellent for dry and mature skin.
  • Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5 reduces puffiness in the eye area by stimulating removal of fluids in tissue.
  • Argireline® is listed as Water, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8. The effect of skin tightening is instantaneous, and the forehead and periorbital area show significant results. It is believed to work by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters. When applied to the skin, Argireline® relaxes facial tension, leading to the reduction in facial lines and wrinkles with regular use. This remotely resembles the effect of Botox, which reduces facial tension and movement by paralyzing facial muscles.
  • Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Tradename Syn®-Coll, is a synthetic peptide designed to stimulate the skin's natural mechanism to produce collagen and reduce the appearance of expression wrinkles.
  • Lemon Peel Oil inhibits tyrosinase activity and pigmentation formation. It is also anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant.
  • D-alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E) is the natural, chirally correct form of Vitamin E. It is an antioxidant that stimulates the immune system.
  • Phytic and Tartaric Acids are natural antioxidants extracted from wheat and rice and have a powerful chelating effect on iron.
