SUMMER IN BUSHWICK

Cynthia Simpson

Bushwick has totally changed in the last five years since I lived there. There are so many great places to eat and cool things to do. If you're looking for some  fun in Brooklyn this summer, you have to check out The Bushwick Collective, an outdoor street gallery of amazing artist from all over the world!

WEDDING DAY

Cynthia Simpson

The day of the wedding has arrived! Though it was hot and sticky, not a drop of rain was in site and I had the best time of my life.  Having your family and closest friends all in one place to celebrate YOU is kind of a big deal. Not to mention, the months and months of planning what you only imagined your whole life actually come together is kind of extraordinary.

The details of the day are what mattered most to me. The time does goes fast, but if you have someone keeping track of when and where you need to be, you can really enjoy getting ready with your bridal party. Thank goodness for my beautiful, organized and taskmaster of a sister. Yay Andrea!

Here are a few special moments that made my day complete and made me smile. 

My crown of flowers, made by The Bloom Bar, were made of fresh baby's breath sprinkled with golden flecks. I really loved how light and delicate it looked in my curly locks but it was really durable as well.

Celebrity makeup artist and close friend, Lynette Broom, made, my mother, sister and I look like movie stars. She's the best at what she does. It was such an honor to have her there for my wedding. She is so talented and made me feel really beautiful. Best part was, no matter how hot it was outside, my makeup did not move all day! 

My bridesmaids were such huge supporters throughout my relationship with Valery and I wanted to give them something special to wear for the day (and the rest of their lives). These beautiful handmade pendents By Boe were the perfect gift. The pendants and chains are 14K gold, light and delicate. When each of my bridesmaids opened their personal gift, they squealed with delight and even cried.

My bouquet was magnificent! Willow & Thistle really made my vision come to life. They even allowed my mother to contribute flowers from her garden which made the bouquet much more special. 

My amazing gown was made by Andrea Pitter, Owner and Designer of Pantora Bridal boutique in Brooklyn, NY. She is so talented and gifted. The dress fit like a glove and was so whimsical and light. I felt like Cinderella, minus the mice. 

We had such am amazing day and I am so excited for what life has in store. It's a day that we won't forget. Thank you everyone who made this day so special! Love you!

TWO SIDES TO SPRING

Cynthia Simpson

Spring is funny, isn't it? Just when you think it's finally time to put away all your winter gear, you have days where you WISH you left home with more then just that cute new jacket.
There are times in life that are similar to Spring's sporadic mood swings. Things seem to be going well and then all of a sudden you're hit with a challenge or setback. We tend to focus and obsess about the moments that don't go as planned, totally forgetting that there is another side where you can grow and learn more about yourself. 
It's difficult to see the positive in a bad situation so instead, focus on the outcome that you desire and remind yourself better days are just around the corner.

STROLL INTO SPRING

Cynthia Simpson

Spring is finally here! Time to put those heavy coats away and bring out the flowy skirts and dresses. I am so excited for warm weather, especially since we had such a long agonizing winter.

Spring is also a time of new beginnings, letting go of old ways and embracing the future. As life begins to change, you begin to grow, learning all sides of who you really are as a person. Instead of resisting change and holding on to the past, lets welcome it with open arms and stroll into the new life that lies ahead.
