After thinking about this new transition for a while, I FINALLY created the new website/shop and made the change for Love Sparkle Pretty to become it's own site where my wonderful customers can purchase directly from the home page rather than going through Etsy! I have loved Etsy so much and I'm so incredibly thankful for that platform as LSP has transformed and become the brand that it is today but I knew it was time to branch out-not only for the brand and the story behind it but also for future customers as well.
I still have my Etsy shop open for those searching for our floral crowns, veils, combs, etc. but from now on, traffic will be driven straight to LoveSparklePretty.com where I've re-created the whole design.
I'm so thankful for the experiences and opportunities this "job" has provided for me and my family and I'm SO excited to welcome the future possibilities! Thank you to everyone for your continuous love and support!

I have some exciting news to share about some changes as well as a few awesome opportunities coming up! After a year of "rest" in 2015 and taking several months off from LSP to have my baby girl and just really enjoy time with my family, this year has been shaping up to be a busy but wonderful one! I just wanted to share some things with you that have made me oh so happy!
First off, a big change is coming soon-hopefully by May at the latest! I'm working on a whole new website where pretties can be purchased directly from my main site rather than having to solely go through my Etsy shop. I will still keep my Etsy shop open but my focus will now be on my main domain website which will turn e-commerce in a couple of weeks!
Next, I have some wonderful features coming up that I'm so giddy about! In May, I have a feature with Green Wedding Shoes with photography by Leighanne Herr, in June, a feature with Magnolia Rouge with photography by Mallory Dawn and in September, a print feature with Bridal Guide Magazine!
I also get to work with Tyler Rye (his work is stunning) with his upcoming workshop by sending him a few bridal pieces for the styled shoots.
I recently had the opportunity to work with the oh so talented Kristen Booth once again by sending her a couple pieces for a styled shoot in Ireland which turned out BEAUTIFULLY! See more photos here! It was magical! This shoot featured the Sienna Floral Crown.
I am also working on a DIY with Afloral that I'm excited about! I will be creating an ombre floral chandelier...stay tuned!
Also, this year I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with the best selling author and mama friend, Amy Kavelaris of the new children's book, Bloom with Mi! I've designed and created several bloom crowns to coordinate with her heart warming book for little's about sharing our gifts and talents we've been given. You can get the book here. As of right now, I don't have a listing in the shop for this crown but you can order one by email at email@example.com.
I share this because I'm still learning to celebrate my wins no matter how big or how small they may seem. Love Sparkle Pretty has turned from a small creative outlet to a business that has opened so many doors, opportunities and connections that I never thought possible over the years! Thank you to everyone for all of the continuous love and support! <3

A while back, I created new combs inspired by the newest Pantone colors of Rose Quartz and Serenity. I absolutely love this color palette! These newest combs created with rose blossoms, freesia, magnolia blooms and greenery-all carefully attached to vintage-inspired gold combs embody the pretty pink and blue hues of 2016. I also created these combs to pair perfectly with a veil such as the Sophia Veil from the shop!
Meet the Rose Quartz Floral Comb created with a gorgeous rose blossom that looks and feels so realistic as well as pink freesia and greenery. View this comb in the shop.
Meet the Serenity Floral Comb which makes the perfect something blue addition created with pretty dusty blue magnolia petals, ivory blossoms and greenery. View this comb in the shop.

For the past few months, I've had a reoccurring vision of styling a photo shoot with a romantic and soft aesthetic centered around hairstyles that would complement pretty blossoms in the hair on a bride's wedding day. I decided to put that vision into action and started to search and reach out to some talented ladies that I knew would be a great fit. I am so thankful for this team of amazing women that helped bring everything together so beautifully! Mallory from Mallory Dawn Photography was behind the camera (actually, cameras since this girl handles business like a boss), Savannah from Savannah & Co. did all of the gorgeous hair styling, Sydney from SMRBeauty worked her magic with makeup, Marnie from Sweet Salvaged Rentals allowed us to use her gorgeous Belwood sofa for the shoot, The Dress Theory so graciously lended 3 stunning Rue De Seine dresses and I created the floral hairpieces and veils and did a bit of floral styling as we shot in a beautiful loft space in Los Angeles at FD Photo Studios.
These are just a few behind the scene shots from our day in Los Angeles! I can't wait to share a few snippets of the actual styling behind the camera soon!

These past couple months, I've had the wonderful pleasure of working with one talented mama, Amy Kavelaris of Bloom Print Studio. She recently wrote her first children's book which is now a number one best seller! Congrats Amy! The inspiration behind Bloom with Mi is using our gifts to GIVE and love others which are characteristics that are so beautifully important to instill in our children. Order your book right here!
I was so excited when Amy contacted me to create some floral crowns to coordinate with Bloom with Mi to debut at Hope Spoken this weekend! I sent my largest order out of 31 crowns (33 if you count the later 2) a couple weeks ago and I'm so thankful to have worked with Amy.
Right now, Worth While Style is giving away a book and crown package on her Instagram page! Visit her page here and enter! Good luck!
