Simply Stylist x Dove Amazing Moments

I’ve partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to share how sometimes the moments that make us sweat are the most amazing moments of all.

Dove recently released their new Amazing Moments campaign that puts Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during a real woman’s surprise proposal to the love of her life. Watching Dove’s Amazing Moments campaign video reminded me of how nerve-wracking and stressful it was leading up to and on my wedding day. I felt nervous, anxious, excited, happy… every emotion and feeling you can possibly think of, I felt them.

The big day was here. The moment that I had been waiting for was finally here. Although I was so happy and over the moon, I remembered feeling so emotional and flustered because of the weather forecast. It stated there was a 50% chance of rain. Throughout the morning, it rained and then stopped, and then rained some more. With my wedding venue being outdoor, my main concern was that the rain would ruin both the ceremony and reception. As one can only imagine, I was panicking. I was in full panic-mode during hair and makeup. Meanwhile, my bridesmaids were trying to keep me calm, and stay positive for me. “It won’t rain. It’ll be perfect. And even if it did rain, they say it’s good luck.” – they all said.

I could hear the rain pouring down as we were on our way to the ceremony. I remembered taking a deep breath, thinking to myself that everything would be ok. As I stepped foot outside the limo, the rain literally stopped. It was pure magic. I realized at that point on that my bridesmaids were absolutely right. No matter what happened — rain or shine– the wedding would go on, and it would be beautiful. And it was. The rain made the wedding more beautiful, and I’m actually happy it did rain. My bridesmaids sure did help me get through this nerve-wracking moment.

Dove Clinical Protection offers undeniable wetness protection and has 1/4 moisturizer to care for skin, so you’re protected throughout life’s amazing moments.

DIY Elina Linardaki Inspired Sandals


I have been wanting a pair of the Leather Dizzy Parrot sandals by Elina Linardaki for quite some time now, so I decided to make my very own pair.  It has been forever since I’ve last done a ‘Mel Made‘, and with my blog’s 6th anniversary just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect!

Making my very own Elina Linardaki Sandals made me realize how much I love making things. When I first started my blog, it was mainly focused on DIYs, and making these sandals truly reminded me how much I missed it.

I plan to do more fun DIYs, so be sure to follow along to see what I make next.



Q&A With Bae: How Well We Know Each Other Before We Say ‘I Do’



Happy Monday everyone! I’m happy because the big day is FINALLY around the corner (eeek)!!!  I’m so nervous and excited at the same time.

I have been wanting to do a Q&A with George on how well we know each other before we say ‘I do’ – for a long time now, but wedding stuff has really taken up most of my time.  However, I recently discovered something new about my fiancé (I know right – you’d think I know everything about him after 14 years), and I literally looked at him and said, “ok, we are shooting this video right now. Start jotting down some questions.”

I mean, I am marrying this guy. 😉

I hope you enjoy this quick video I put together.
