After five full magnificiant day's in sunny CA Im slowly coming down off my Affarie at Tiffany's high!
Once again, Kim Caldwell has hosted another gorgeous and extradoinary event!
I've attended four of Kim's event's and to date....I think this one was my personal fav.
The event was a glamour girls dream!!!

The best part of attending events is the opportunity to see your friends again and forming new friendships.
