shashi 2 shashi 3 shashi 4 good shashi 5 good

The Shashi Socks folks were kind enough to send me a collection of Shashi Socks, and the easy slip-on, traction-grip and sparkly socks struck me as a great little gift for bridesmaids, to wear on the wedding morning during those getting-ready hours. Especially if you’ll all get ready in a hotel and have seen enough of those investigative reports with their blacklight revelations. Even in the best brands of hotel, these are still not your carpets nor your bathroom tile floor, so sock-wearing may be your bridesmaids’ preference. With matching, cozy Shashi Socks, they get a keeper gift as well.

Slip resistant grippers on the bottom add stabilitiy and traction. Shashi socks are availabe in S (5.5-7.5) ,M (8-10),L (10.5-12.5) and retail from $15-$18.

Fab Find: NaturalGlam Raw Crystal Earrings in Amethyst

natural glam

What a fabulous gift for bridesmaids! Amethyst is so in right now, and when I saw Natural Glam’s pretty dangle earrings in natural, raw crystal that looks like rock candy, I knew this was one of my Fab Finds!

They’re delicate and pretty, with gold plated wires, about 1.5” long, and they look way more expensive than $26.00 each (price at time of this printing.) Designer Candice Bouldin does such a lovely job on these! You can get them in Amethyst or in the yellow Citrine shown here, which lets you mix and match to suit your bridesmaids’ styles…or get a pair or two for yourself!

This new margarita positively sparkles! It’s Sauza® Sparkling Margarita, adding a bubbly kick to a tasty margarita. I gathered a few of my bride friends together to taste-test the Sauza Sparkling Margaritas, in the three flavors, Original Lime, Wild Berry and Mango Peach, and all of them were a hit! Two out of three brides chose Mango Peach as their favorite, and I was a Wild Berry girl.

Since these are so fun, fresh and new, you get fabulous hostess points for lining up these pretty bottles on your engagement party bar, and they’re a Fab addition to a bridal shower or bachelorette party drinks list. They’re available in two sizes: 750mL ($12.99) and 375mL  ($7.99) and they’re low in calories at 125 calories per 4oz serving.

Here’s what else I love: July 24th is National Tequila Day, so invite your bridesmaids over for a special cocktail party just for them, chose one or all of these sparkling margaritas [you might want to color-coordinate with your party theme!] and have a tasting party. Here are some recipes to make them even more fun!

Speaking of fun, here are some Fun Facts for your tasting party. Print these out on cards for your bar, and let the learning begin!

    • Last  year more than 40 new tequilas were introduced to the market
    • 100%  Agave products lead the pack on what consumers are gravitating towards (Tequila that has been produced from only the fermented and distilled juices of the Blue Webber Agave)
    • The  US consumes almost twice as much Tequila as Mexico each year
    • In the last 10 years, Tequila volume has grown by 72%

We’re not done yet! Sauza Sparkling Margaritas would be pretty and perfect to serve on your wedding morning, when your ladies are getting ready. Add some festive straws and pretty cocktail glasses, and take plenty of photos of you toasting your bridesmaids.
