Pressed Juicery giveaway on 100 Layer Cake

Good Monday morning, lovelies! Since many of you are heading into the final stretch of your wedding planning journey, we thought we’d dedicate this week to YOU. Looking and feeling your best on your big day is huge and we want to help you get there with a bunch of fun giveaways, plus tips from experts and even an amazing pilates class at The Studio (MDR) on Saturday. (Thanks to all of you who came out for our Soul Cycle ride on Friday morning, BTW!)

But first, how about a juicy prize for you and 5 bridesmaids!?

Yep! We’re starting the week with a beautiful and delicious giveaway from our friends at Pressed Juicery. Have you ever done a juice cleanse before? Ever wanted to? We love them, and last week we were able to try out a cleanse from Pressed ourselves. Not gonna lie, there are moments when it can be really hard! But it’s only three days long and the results are so worth it. Also, the juice. It’s so good.

Giving your body a break from all of the complex (and sometimes not so healthy) foods you eat on a daily basis not only makes you feel better and lighter, it breaks your cravings and food habits like nothing else. It’s kind of like a restart button for your belly, and it just so happens that you’ll probably drop a few pounds too.

We loved having three days of “meals” all planned out. When you’re busy, and ladies we know the end stages of wedding planning can be cray-zee, it’s such a relief to just grab a bottle from the fridge and go. Though hopefully while you’re cleansing you’re able to take some quiet walks or go to a yoga class, and make some space for yourself too.

And having five of your friends doing the cleanse at the same time is a pretty awesome support system.

One lucky reader is going to win a cleanse for 6 people! So that’s the lady of honor and 5 of her ‘maids. Or a groom and his dudes. Or whichever 5 people you want to take on this journey with you. It’s open to everyone so if you’d like to try a Pressed Juicery cleanse, use the app below to enter. It’s going to be awesome and once you flush the icky stuff from your system, you’re guaranteed to glow!

California Fig House wedding

When we heard that Amy + Jason’s wedding was at The Fig House we had to take a peek. Eclectic décor meets fresh, modern design? What’s not to love about an I Do in such a space? They also had a bunch of rad LA vendors that you’ve probably heard us rave about before—including Shindig Chic Creations + Samantha Dapper, who previously teamed up here and here. Okay, shall we?

Many thanks to Marble Rye Photography for sharing these photos with us!

About the florals + design by Shindig Chic Creations, c/o our bride… They jokingly called me “the anti-bride” because it was like pulling teeth for them to get any type of inspiration ideas out of me. Finally they wrestled the words succulents, neutral, and geometric out of me. From that little bit of direction they conjured the most stunning décor. I’m hard to impress and it honestly brought me to tears when I saw what they had created.

The in-house catering, Room Forty, provided an impeccable presentation from passed hors d’oeuvres to a three course meal. We bypassed a traditional wedding cake in favor of their passed dessert trays. The highlight: Their take on campfire s’mores. Uh yeah!

Beautiful. Congratulations Amy and Jason!

Nizuc Resort and Spa in Cancun

Hi Cakies! Amanda here, popping in with a few pics from a wondrous trip I took with my husband to Cancun at NIZUC Resort & Spa earlier this month. After a quick 4.5 hour flight from LA, we stepped out of the plane and into heaven. We arrived with our pants and sweaters on, disheveled hair and all. Then quickly slipped into our bathing suits and slept on the warm, private white sand beach with a piña colada in hand.

Honeymooners, this place is a dream!

NIZUC has three infinity guest pools, one of which has a swim-up bar that I took full advantage of. Outdoor beds and lounge chairs dot the pool and beach areas, making it oh so easy for a nice long snooze.

Piña Colada served in a fresh pineapple? Check.

Once you visit the beaches here and experience the jungle vibe, you will see what all the fuss is about. It’s the perfect mix of intrigue, beauty, wonder and allure. One of my favorite places I’ve ever visited for sure.

And the sunsets here. My GOD THE SUNSETS! Pink, purple, peach.. all the prettiest colors you could imagine, making it feel like you need to stay here forever.

One quiet evening, we had dinner at the end of the pier. Complete with our own sommelier. If you’re here on a special occasion (or just feel like treating yourself!) NIZUC offers this unique service for you to experience. Delicious fish, a gentle breeze and a magical view made this evening one for the books.

After this memorable dinner, we sauntered over to the spa to indulge in a 2 hour couple’s massage, facial and aromatherapy treatment, called the “NIZUC Romance”. Talk about living it up!

There are six restaurants on the property, which are all quite tasty. Nothing fresher than huevos rancheros made in front of you, or a fresh squeezed juice bar at your disposal. One of the things I loved most was all the decor and design details. NIZUC really captures the essence of the ancient and mystic Mayan culture with all of its open, airy spaces, lush landscaping and organic elements.

Infinity pool on the patio of our suite? Check.

If you choose to get away from it all, you can go out and lounge on these comfy beds and stare out at all that blue.

This little sunken lounge overlooking the sea was a favorite spot for a late evening nightcap.

Getting married here would be a dream. There are multiple areas to choose from for the ceremony and reception, all as lovely as the next. And of course, there is no question that it would be the perfect way to relax as newlyweds.

We’ll definitely be coming back here soon, NIZUC! Thank you for a splendid time.
