So many wedding events are happening and what’s a better way to see the lastest and greating in everything bridal? A tradeshow of course!  Here are the upcoming Wedding Salon dates and places. I am definitely going to check out the April show in NY with my mom and sis! What do I want to see at bridal tradeshows? I want to know about wedding cakes, scrapbooking ideas and of course FOOD.  Attending Wedding Salon will help brides meet with vendors, photographers, get great ideas for their wedding and connect with other brides. I am going to help my sister as much as possible so she doesn’t turn into a Bridezilla! My sister’s wedding will have a formal ‘Western’ ceremony and a traditional “Asian” reception. Can’t wait to eat all that delicious food… The best thing about a cross cultural wedding is that you get double the fun. I can’t wait!  As for my own wedding? Let me find a boyfriend first… ^_^

:Random Thought

I just watched The Social Network… I know, it’s been out FOREVER! Never mind the fact that i’m watching it bootleg via Playstation 3. I’ve been too busy working on making my millions then to watch another man prove how he made his billions.
Biggest contributor to his success is… the fact that he knew he could be successful.

Thoughts?! What did this make me think? How did it make me feel?!

First thought is that sometimes there’s nothing wrong with not being as “smart/cool” as ‘them guys’.
Alot of disfunctionality in all of the intelligence = making me nervous.
Just because you go to the best school/have the best job doesn’t make you the best person.
Respect your team, you can only go so far on your own.
Stay true to your passion. If you have something going… and you know it can go… get it there.

(NY) Shecky’s

Shecky’s has a well-earned reputation for knowing what girls like, and for being able to give it to them the way they like it. Go to a Shecky’s event in any city where one is being held and you’ll find all the stuff we girls crave – clothes, jewelry, handbags, makeup, candles and perfume, and maybe even some naughty toys to enjoy with our significant others. 

This week’s Holiday Night Out – being held through tomorrow at the Altman Building in Chelsea – is no different (except that, unfortunately, it’s sold out, unless you want to try getting a ticket from someone who can’t go, and they often post messages on Shecky’s event message boards).
With a huge variety of vendors, the Holiday event event is touted as a fun way to finish your holiday shopping with your girlfriends – and to treat yourself to a few things, as well. Clearly, everyone who attends these events has a fantastic time, evidenced by how difficult it is to get a ticket to how packed it is and how elated the vibe is throughout the evening. From trying out new techniques in tooth whitening and home-manicure scrubs to sitting on Santa’s lap for a group photo, all with cocktail and cell phone in hand, this is one happy group of women.

This year’s event does more than just make attendees happy, though. The proceeds from the event are going to support Nest, a non-profit organization that empowers impoverished female artists and artisans around the world by using a unique combination of interest-free microfinance loans, mentoring from established designers and a market in which to sell their crafts. Nest instills pride of ownership, preserves ancient artistic traditions and successfully moves women from poverty to self-sufficiency. 
Along with Midori cocktails, great music and tons of girl power to spare (boys are not prevented from entering but they certainly aren’t encouraged), everyone who attends gets the now-famous and coveted Shecky’s Gift Bag, usually included with the price of a ticket, because, well, girls love taking their stuff home in cute bags!
