14 Amazing Blog and Social Media Accounts We Adore

Amidst the summer travels there lies one essential truth: long layovers at the airport suck. There are only so many times you can hit up the Hudson News stand to check out the latest Kimye gossip, so before boredom sets in, do yourself a favor and peep these blogs and accounts we’re currently obsessed with. They’re sure to make you laugh, cry, or make the light bulb over your head turn on (hopefully all three). Have fun!

Accessorize For Any Type of Wedding!

June is the go to month for weddings and it’s no surprise, the weather is nicer and vacations for honeymoons are inexpensive right before the summer traveling rush. We’ve put together some Winky Designs essentials perfect for weddings, whether you’re having a destination wedding or an unconventional ceremony, we have you covered!

White Wedding
Gemstones up the elegance factor to the classic white wedding and add the perfect touch to the bridal gown. Our Tiramisu Sweet Dreams watch with sunstone gemstone, genuine leather, and 14k gold plating gives you a great jewelry look with an added time telling feature. Ya know, just in case your dad starts telling everyone stories of your awkward first boyfriend during his speech, you can look at the time and hurry him along…

Destination Wedding

Whether on the beaches of Mexico or French castle a la Kimye, destination weddings are fast becoming the ceremonies of choice. Our Vanilla Souffle Sweet Dreams Watch with genuine freshwater pearls is perfect for adding a bit of jewelry glam to the wedding look. Pair with gilded gold sandals for a beachside fête and you’re ready to dance the night away under the stars. Oh-la-la!

Unconventional Wedding

You’re not the typical couple and your wedding should reflect that! Whether that means a ceremony on the slopes, underwater, or in a Vegas chapel, an unconventional wedding will be sure to keep your guest entertained and rockin out during the wedding and reception. Our slap strap watches are perfect for the bride and groom who like to have a little fun and stand out as unique and joyful, plus they’re water resistant up to 98 feet so you can wear them during the snorkeling ceremony!
