Happy Monday, and 1 week countdown to Christmas! I don't know about you, but I am full of holiday cheer! After all, it's the most wonderful time of the year, and I'm in full swing setting goals for the new year. Well, this holiday season there are 5 more things I'm loving and celebrating (plus some things you'll love too)!

1. The debut issue of B Inspired The Magazine
I have several reasons to be excited about this epic magazine filled with 300+ pages of stunning weddings, celebrations, styled shoots and expert articles. And 1 of those reasons is yours truly is featured in this magazine! With the help of some of my amazing friendors, a beautiful editorial I planned is gracing the pages of B Inspired. Do yourself a favor and pre-order the magazine today here, and be sure to grab one for a friend when it hits newsstands the day after Christmas!


2. Christmas Shopping Online (plus cash back!)
I primarily do most of my shopping online, especially when it comes to Christmas gift giving. It saves me so much time, and takes the stress out of shopping. Well, I recently learned of another incentive to shop online - cash back through Ebates! I've already earned $40 in less than a month, simply by shopping where I normally shop and clicking the ebates button when I do! You can sign up for FREE here, and start earning cash back on your purchases from stores/sites like Walmart, Macy's, Amazon, Sak's Fifth Avenue, Ugg, Old Navy, MAC, Expedia, Marriott...need I go on?! You can thank me later :)


3. I'm loving my mom's 55th birthday photo shoot
I'm trying to find the fountain of youth she drank from! I hope I can slay like this at 55! The one thing my mom wanted for her birthday was some updated photos of herself and our family, and thankfully my good #photograpHER friend, Rhea Whitney, was able to make that happen. Whether for your birthday, wedding or other special event or portrait needs, be sure to call Rhea to get your photos magazine worthy.

4. Everything Christmas (and these 2 cuties!)
Thanks again to Rhea Whitney because my family can send out season's greetings this year with updated photos! She even has some shots of me and hubby giving engagement shoot vibes! :) I love everything Christmas, and I'm grateful for this season of celebrating the birth of Christ, giving to others, tree trimming, quality time with family and friends and spreading joy!

5. Engagement Season
Cue the confetti for engagement season! I always look forward to seeing the proposals fill up my timeline after Christmas, the New Year, and Valentine's Day! Likewise, I love welcoming new couples to the Sensational Soirees family, and planning the wedding of their dreams. We have availability for a few more couples for 2018, and already have some couples booked for 2019! So if you or a friend want to check our date availability and pricing, simply reply to this email or email info@sensationalsoirees.com. I'd be happy to send a planning guide your way, too!
