Move over tooth jewelry, there’s a new sparkle in town!

Move over tooth jewelry, you are no longer the strangest and possibly ickiest place on the body to put jewelry. When you think of facial jewelry, it’s pretty much covered. People pierce and put jewelry in their lips, noses, and eyebrows with astonishing regularity and even body modifiers with their cheek, chin, and forehead piercings rarely even get a second glance. So where, oh where could we bling next?

Engagement Photos… They’ve come a long way baby.

The term ‘engagement photo’ brings to mind a whole slew of things. Everything from your parents saying, “There was never any of this nonsense around when WE got engaged”, or perhaps they’re whipping out that old leatherette bound horror film filled to the brim with baby blue bell bottom tuxes and ruffled shirts. No? Just me then? Even in the past decade there has been a huge leap in engagement photography moving it beyond just being a passport photo that happens to have two people in it.

Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Gown Roundup!

So you’ve probably heard by now that Kim Kardashian is engaged… again. I mean, it seems like it was just yesterday that our little Kim was walking down the aisle. Oh yeah… that’s because I’ve eaten cheese that lasted longer than that marriage. But that’s not why we’re here. We’re here because well, we love a wedding. And when it comes to Kardashian Klan nuptials. sign us up! Hey, since she’s marrying another guy with a name that starts with K, we’re sensing a theme here, do you think she can reuse some of the decor from the last shindig?

 

 

But back to the matter at hand, if the proposal is anything to go by, this wedding should be anything but dull! A ballpark, orchestra, and some begging sure says romance to us, right?! Although to be honest. If someone were giving me this rock, I’d have said yes in a dumpster.
