“Oh yes, it’s ladies night and the feelings right. Oh yes it’s ladies night…Oh what a night.” That’s right ladies – tonight is your night. It is your night to celebrate the bride and all of her closest lady friends! Although I probably cannot say there will be an appearance by Kool and the Gang to get the party started. (It is probably for the best anyway – ha). However there are many options to jump-start your wedding adventures! Typing in ‘Bachelorette Parties in Grand Rapids’, definitely isn’t helpful at all. That is why I did some digging and came up with a list that I think everyone can like something from!

1. ‘Vegas’ Style

-Casinos are in close enough proximity that you could make a night out of it, or even stay at one for the weekend. Gambling, entertainment and food a plenty can be found at Michigan casinos. This can be a great way to keep everyone in one place to party until the wee hours of the morning!

2. The Sophisticated Lady

-Michigan is full of wineries, almost too many to choose from. Wherever you live, there is most likely a winery within a short drive if you want to check one out for the day. Or there are many options to take a weekend getaway and visit many wineries within close proximity to one another. To really let loose, check out a car service or tour bus to do the driving for your group!

-The same can be said for visiting breweries, if you like a little more hops in your drink than grapes. Breweries are popping up everywhere with websites dedicated to help you figure out some great beer paths to follow as well as designated drivers too!

3. The Artsy Fartsy

-Group painting classes are becoming more and more popular. They are a great way to do something together with your friends, as well as bring home a memory from the event. Take it up a notch and see if you can BYOB. Some of the events even have their own wine to share with the participants.

4. Spicing It Up!

-Grab your girls and head over to Flirt Fitness. They offer private parties that can come with pole dancing lessons, lap dances, strip teases or a combination of all.

-A great way to finish a pole dancing party is to host a party with all the great outfits to wear with your news moves you just learned. Scotta Intimates is a lingerie brand that allows you to host a party (more details to come next month). Take it a step further and add some Pure Romance toys into the mix to really take care of all assets of the wedding night!

5. The Lavender Nose

-Every woman, whether she has had one or not, loves a massage, a facial, a sugar scrub, and relaxation. A great way to celebrate the bride and her best ladies is a trip the spa. This can also be a great way for the bride, her maid or honor, her mother and mother to be, as an extra special thank you with memories or just being together and enjoying one another.41015 102 6 Ideas For Your Next Bachelorette Party

6. The Laid Back Lady

-Grab your girls and have a night in with movies, games, drinks and food.

-Get dropped off in an area where there are many different bars to choose from that you can hop around to (Downtown, East town, Westside, etc)

-A picnic in the park.

-And any other ideas the bride or the bridal party may have. Just remember the day is about celebration and enjoying your best gals!

Mothers have a magical touch.  Nothing is more powerful, healing or calming than the unconditional love that comes from our mothers.  Whether you know everything about your mother or not, there are sacrifices you aren’t aware of that your mother has done for you to have a better life – and she isn’t willing to stop anytime soon.  Your mother is special to you.  No one else will understand the exact importance your mother is to you but hopefully share the same feelings towards their own mother.  This Mother’s Day give your mother a gift that is truly timeless…a captured moment of her beauty.  4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 106 This Is For Our Moms 4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 101 This Is For Our Moms

Our mother’s beauty radiates from the inner depth of her heart and soul.  Her beauty should not just be shown through her love for her family but also for herself.  This mother’s day treat your mother to a beauty session.  1414Brown 107 This Is For Our Moms1414Brown 120 This Is For Our Moms

She deserves to be pampered by having her hair and make up professionally done to shine for the camera.  It is a wonderful sentiment to feel extra special for a day, while capturing those moments on camera that allow the day to last forever.  The added bonus is that the beauty your mother felt that day will be because of you – something she will never forget.

There is also the option of doing a session together – a mother-daughter duo – can expand the experience to greater heights.  Just the gesture alone to your mother will mean more to her than you can image.  Her happiness alone will make your heart feel her magic.  True happiness is seeing our mothers smile.  4415AKDT 101 This Is For Our Moms 4415AKDT 121 This Is For Our Moms

We are our parents’ greatest gifts in their lives.  They are beyond deserving of the world, so show your mother how they mean the world to you by gifting them something that will show the world the best version of themselves – a beautiful picture, of a beautiful woman, to shine to the end of time.


Remember your mothers on May 10th!  Show her how much you care!  Book her appointment today.

Whether you are someone that cares a lot about your significant other planning out a special Valentine’s Day, or someone that is at the complete opposite side of the spectrum or someone that is, well, just single…there is still some importance to be celebrated during this day.22013 103 Happy Valentines Day!

 

It is one day out of the year that love is thrown into your face all around you, where it takes much more negative energy to boycott it than accept it.  You deserve to acknowledge the love in the air and selfishly soak it all up, at the very least, for yourself!  So whether you are with someone or not or just flat out don’t care…I challenge you to acknowledge the love you have for yourself that day.

 

Here are some ways to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day!

 

-Treat yourself to a bubble bath.  Taking the time out of your day to do something for yourself as well as decompressing gives you the energy to love the rest of the day.

-Cook yourself or someone you love dinner or dessert.  They say when you cook with love your food tastes better!

-Fill your day with guilty pleasures.  No need to hide them today, do or experience as many of your guilty pleasures as possible.  Free yourself and fall in love with them again.

-Make your own lotion or oil to massage in your body or someone else’s

-Take some extra time to do something for yourself that makes you feel beautiful, just remember you are doing it for yourself.  If you do it for yourself then it is that much more important to where others around you will notice as well!

-Make home made cards or a small gift for those you love in your life

-Light some candles around the house and read a romantic novel

2113 123 Happy Valentines Day!

Whatever it may be…just take the time and do something to show your love.  Taking time out of your days that you may otherwise say you don’t have time to do things, goes a long way.  It shows that you are important to yourself and others are important to you!

 

 

Specific Grand Rapids Activities:

Before the Actual day-

-Schedule a beauty session or gift one to someone else!  You don’t need to have someone special to give the photos too necessarily…you can also do it for self.  Giving yourself a day of pampering and freeing yourself in front of a camera, can be very liberating and a growing, loving experience!

-Get ready for the big night with some friends by testing and learning some new moves through activities like Flirt Fitness

-Walk around downtown discovering the ice sculptures set up around town

When mom, Kate, and daughter, Tori, come to Grand Rapids beauty photography studio for a makeover for a super sweet photo session.  Beauty sessions are great for young women like Tori and perfect to share with moms like Kate.  It makes for a great bonding experience between mom and daughter because they both get pampered together and see the transformations take place.  I am honored and happy these two beauties could be here and in front of my camera.
