0

In the past save the date cards were viewed as purely optional or a frivolous unnecessary expense. In recent years this expendable piece has become an essential part of the wedding stationery package. Renowned etiquette coach and wedding planner Shaun Tiffany Adeoye attributes this new necessity  to  economic change. “The growing bustle of the new working family has heightened  the need for advance notice. It is no longer optional but moreover […]

Have you seen the new Weight Watchers commercials? Jennifer Hudson is back and she is looking absolutely amazing! According to this description on USA Today, Hudson has gone from a 16 to a 6 since last April. I’m not so convinced that she is only a size 6, as I am an 8 – 10 and she […]
