Priti Bride

As I wait anxiously for my complete set of wedding photos, I wanted to take a minute and share this one above featuring my favorite nail polish, Priti NYC(Photo by Volatile Photography)

I originally fell in love with the colors of the Priti Bridal Bouquet, however, upon learning that their polishes are completely non-toxic, I was hooked!  My heart was set on Pink Jewel Carnation and it did not disappoint.  It was the perfect amount of pink blush on my hands to compliment my pink shoes (more on those later).

The polish itself is flawless.  No streaks, clumps or bubbles.  It went on smooth and dried even prettier than I imagined; even the manicurist asked about the brand!  I did the traditional ‘something blue’ on my toes and went with Dorothy Palm.  My shoes were closed toe, but the color made me smile.Priti NYCWhen you have a chance, I’d highly recommend checking out Priti NYC.  I can’t wait to see what colors they have for 2013!

Also, Little Maison has been undergoing some blog maintenance, please forgive the lack of writing!  All should be settled soon.   Enjoy the weekend!

Traveling Blues

I wrote  a guest blog post today for the lovely online boutique, Frock Stock!

Whenever I return home from a vacation I get the traveling blues; happy to have gone away, but sad that it’s over!  I reminisce fondly of blue skies and fresh air to keep the feeling of vacation alive.

This past September my boyfriend and I set out on a mini road trip through Portland (Oregon) and Northern California.  It was a trip filled with my favorite combination of nature and city.  I captured the sights along the way and have paired them up with a few of Frock Stock’s Spring finds below.  I hope this inspires you to set out on your own adventure and keep those traveling blues away!

Featured above is the breathtaking Ocean Beach in San Francisco.  The air is so crisp, can’t you just see this polka dot scarf blowing in the breeze!

Below, we stopped in Sausalito, California to enjoy the view of San Francisco from the water’s edge.  This little sun dress is perfect for a stroll along the bay.

This photo below was taken as we rolled by on the streetcar in San Francisco.  This breezy top is ready for running errands around town.  

Below, bright doorways on the small streets of Portland Oregon were picture perfect.  I can just see this gathered skirt with flats walking through the city. (above)
Finally below, what California trip would be complete without a little wine!  The wineries in Sonoma were superb.  This peplum dress can go from day to night with ease.

Don’t forget to check out their shop HERE and use code LILMAISN to get the 15% discount up until 3/31/12
