Confession time… being a wedding blogger is a demanding job! Finding time for myself isn't always easy, especially when you have three children, three dogs, and a house to take care of. And I am assuming you can totally relate, since planning your wedding demands so much of your time. Let's face it girl, we need some "Me Time."
Reading is my all-time favorite "Me Time" activity. So lately while I do grocery shopping (I usually go Pavilions) I've been picking up the latest issues of PEOPLE or InStyle magazine. I love to keep the magazines on my desk so when I need a little brain break and another cup of coffee, I have something to not only keep me entertained, but also inspired. So, I recommend you do the same! Your brain is probably on it's on wedding channel right now. But, every bride needs a few minutes to step out of the spotlight and enjoy some "Me Time."
Flipping through InStyle inspires me so much. It keeps me ahead on the latest styles and trends, and give me ideas for styled-photoshoot themes and posts topics. You see, weddings can sometimes be inspired by unlikely elements: fabric patterns, nail polish shades, interior design elements, etc. The key is to have fun and keep your eyes open while you browse through the magazine. You never know what will spark your creativity!
From your engagement party to your bridal shower, you will also need plenty of fashion inspiration for the events surrounding your wedding day. So, that is another way InStyle can come in handy during your wedding planning! I pretty much get all my fashion inspo from InStyle, especially for fall season and Bridal Week when I need plenty of cute outfits to attend the runway shows and parties.
Having a bad day in your wedding planning process? Kick your feet up, relax and do something that makes you happy. My go-to magazine for relaxing is PEOPLE magazine, it's so much fun to catch up on celebrities and POP culture. I don't have to wait until my next vaca and you don't have to wait until your honeymoon to escape the chaos, PEOPLE magazine will be our little getaway with the stars.
So don't let wedding planning get the best of you. Step away from designing your "I do's" for a moment and get your "Me Time" with PEOPLE and InStyle. Trust me, the escape to "Me Time" starts with one of these magazines!
