Rose Gold Leslie Vine 3 Ways

PicMonkey Collage2

Here is our Leslie Vine in the newest color: Rose Gold. Our Leslie Vine is a dainty wired headpiece with clear rhinestones and beads creating a organic leafy motif that wraps all the way around the head. The vine has small loops at the ends to be pinned into the hair. Here are three ways to rock this look at your big day.

Our second look is a easy side pony with the Leslie Vine as a partial headband.

Surprise! The Leslie Vine can also act as a sash that is attached to a 9mm silk satin ribbon in the color of your choice.

Our friend Mirelle has done it again with her stunning “Old World Romance” shoot that we were thrilled to participate in along with The Dress Theory San Diego. We’re in love with the gorgeous florals, romantic calligraphy and of course – those sweet treats!

The shoot featured some of our favorite statement pieces including the “Alex” beaded cap veil below – perfect for our romantic bride who wants a hint of vintage inspired detail.

Our  “Ariel” comb with a classic braid creates a rustic bohemian look perfectly complimenting this rural outdoor setting.

Summer 2015 Movies to Read First

Summer is almost upon us and so is the time to read at the beach and hit those summer blockbuster movies! This summer there are plenty of movies that are based on books. So if you want to beat everyone to the punch and claim the “book was better,” here are some great adaptations to check out before you watch on the big screen.

Far From the Madding Crowd (May 1st) This period film featuring the beautiful Carey Mulligan, revolves around a young lady who enchants multiple men around the same time and has to choose one to marry in 1800s rural England. Scandalous! If you enjoy a nice Jane Austen book or movie this might be just up your alley.FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWDfftmc

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (June 12th) Here is a winner of two Sundance awards including the Sundance Grand Jury Prize. This book is about a young boy who tries to strategize his high school senior year so it doesn’t totally suck. This works for a little until his mom forces him to hang out with a girl his age who has cancer.MeandEarlandtheDyingGirl_article_story_large599x899xme-and-earl-683x1024.jpg.pagespeed.ic.EFAsEnVV1M

Paper Towns (July 24th) This will be model Cara Delevigne’s first starring role portraying an adventurous girl who after plotting revenge on her cheating ex, sends the boy next door on a scavenger hunt to find her. The book is written by the same author as The Fault in our Stars and stars one of the same actors from the film, Nat Wolff. 26C3A32300000578-0-the_first_images_from_the_highly_anticipated_movie_the_supermode-m-33_1426675057097papertowns

New York Fashion Week 2014 Hair Trends

NYFW-2014-Hair-Trends

As New York Fashion Week continues, so do the hair trends. Last week was just a taste compared to today’s post. Most of the styles this year are going au naturale, and the other half is all about the braids. So far sooo lovely, even though some of these we might not try ourselves. But the natural look goes deeper than just hair, it’s nails, lips, and makeup too.

Messy Braids seem like an easy fix to a bad day, however, these styles took a lot of work.

Braided crowns are a must for us, and we totally plan on using them with some of our head sashes, (tutorial soon? Hmmm! Stay tuned.)

Happy Saturday Recipe!

Recently at Amanda Judge offices, we have fallen in love with cake pops! Such a cute twist on a classic dessert, the perfect portions and just the right amount of sweet to satisfy any craving! We love how simple they are to make too, check out this recipe from Craftsy.com! From our kitchen to yours, happy saturday and happy baking!

How to make cake pops

Ingredients:

A cake – Any kind of cake will do. It can be a box mix or your favorite “from scratch” recipe.

Icing – For best results, use a buttercream that is made with only butter, no shortening. (This will help your cake pops stay together better when they are dipped.)

Ice-cream scoop

Gloves

Spatula

A plate lined with parchment paper

Cake pop sticks or sucker sticks

Candy Melts – At least 24 oz. This is also referred to as summer coating, chocolate coating or candy coating.

Styrofoam to place your cake pops in once you are finished dipping.

cake crumbs 1

 

Step 1: making and preparing cake

Take your cake out of the pan and dump it in a bowl. Next, using your gloved or very clean hands, mash up the cake into small crumbs.

Next, add a small amount of icing to your cake crumbs. You will want to add about a ½ cup of icing for 5 cups of crumbs. Again, using your hands, mix up the icing and cake until it is fully incorporated and the cake can form into balls and hold together.

Step 2: forming the cake pops

Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out your cake pops, then using your hands, roll the cake pops into tight balls.

storing cake pops

Step 3: inserting sticks and freezing

Place them on your plate and insert the sticks about half to three- quarters of the way into the cake pop.

Place them in the freezer for at least one hour.

Step 4: Remove from freezer and melt chocolate

After an hour, pull your cake pops out of the freezer. They need a few minutes to warm up just a little.

If it takes longer than 15-20 minutes to melt your chocolate, place your cake pops in the refrigerator, then let them warm slightly before dipping.

Melt your chocolates according to package instructions.

dip the cake pops

 

Step 5: dipping time!

Gently dip your cake pops into the candy melts all the way to the stick, don’t twist them too much and don’t let them touch the sides or the bottom of the bowl.

You can use the spatula to push the chocolate up to the stick as you turn the cake pop. Gently pull them out and shake them carefully. You can also tap them gently on the side of the bowl. Once you have gotten most of the extra chocolate off the cake pops, twirl it just a little while shaking it gently to help even out the remaining chocolate.

Then place the cake pop upright in the Styrofoam to dry.

Step 6: finish dipping and enjoy!

Continue to dip the remaining cake pops into the chocolate.

Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes and enjoy!

Have a wonderful saturday!
