    Happy Monday ♥ Tis’ the season to be festive!

    Time flies by so fast when it comes to the fall + the holiday season. Crazy to think Thanksgiving is just weeks away, followed by Black Friday shopping + prepping for holiday parties and gatherings! One of the most stressful parts of the holiday season is planning holiday parties. Whether it is an office party, a family gathering or a larger event, there is so much to do + so little time. Luckily, I am teaming up with BasicInvite.com today to share how easy it is the create custom holiday party invitationsphoto cards with just a few simple clicks!

    When it comes to throwing a great party, the invitation is pretty much the first impression of what is to come…the pressure is on, and what better way to do that than creating a custom theme or design that suits your style while having over 180 different colors to choose from along with various envelope designs + foil accents to add a little glitz + glam!

    What I love about Basic Invite is that the site is easy to navigate + there is just so much room for creativity. With over 250 Christmas card and holiday card designs, you are bound to find something personal to you that will stand out amongst the typical store bought cards shared throughout the season.

     Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print + feel (paper quality is key) before they have to place a final order. Now this is something I think is genius, nothing is worse than ordering something online (especially a bulk order of custom invitations or cards) + them not coming out as expected. By being able to order a sample, it makes the process seamless + guarantees satisfaction so every order is a happy order…one less thing to worry about this holiday season 😉

    While I will be in London this holiday season, I am tempted to order holiday cards just because they are so pretty! From the chic fonts, to the creative details, Basic Invite has everything you need for spreading joy this season.

    As if the amazing cards aren’t enough, Basic Invite also has an address capturing service which allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social platform to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account + can then be selected during the design process so each individual card + envelope is customized. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no extra cost on all Christmas card orders! Woohoo! (The less I have to handwrite the better hehe…I have the sloppiest handwriting ever :p)

    So can I just move in? That’s what I was saying the entire time I was exploring the ‘ReimaginedMiramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa this week! From the delicious dishes specially curated by Chef Paul at the Citrus & Palm Restaurant, to the relaxing ‘rain massage’ at The Well Spa, to the amazing pool + comfy room…I felt like I was at an island oasis and the best part? It is only 2 hours away from LA and the hustle and bustle of the city!

    Indian Wells is my favorite place to go to on the weekends when I want to just unwind + rejuvenate…finding the perfect place to do that is always a challenge but with the great amenities at the Miramonte, you will be in good hands.

    When I arrived this adorable macaroon cactus was waiting for me in my room (if you know me, you know I love some macaroons – I am a slight Ladurée addict hehe). I love the thoughtful details a resort thinks about to make the guests’ stay that much better, this was a sweet way to start my trip before heading to a 6 course dinner at their newly renovated Citrus & Palm Restaurant.

    From steak to seafood to delicious dessert, the Citrus & Palm Restaurant is a 5 star restaurant without having to leave the resort and when you are on vacation, that is exactly what you need…good food, good times + not leaving your oasis! What I thought was so cool about Chef Paul and the curated menu at the restaurant is that he incorporates citrus flavors from the resort grounds to include in the dishes. Also, all of the dishes are made with healthy ingredients making them that much more delicious because they don’t have the guilt factor you usually get when eating well when you are away 😉

    Speaking of food, these are the yummy Lemon Panna Cotta Pancakes topped with berries that I had one morning thanks to the amazing room service at Miramonte. These pancakes are ones I am STILL dreaming over because they were so so good…like beyond delicious I kid you not 😉

    After enjoying the delicious meals it was time to hit my favorite place…the spa!

    The Well Spa was beyond relaxing and I tried out their ‘rain massage‘ which included aroma therapy and elixirs being dripped up and down my spine during the massage. The spa mixes holistic practices with relaxing moments making you feel like a new woman when you leave. The spa also has a eucalyptus steam room, a salt water pool and shaded cabanas making it the ultimate place to spend your day relaxing (which is exactly what I did following my massage).

     Happy #NationalColorDay ya’ll!

    To celebrate one of my favorite days (because I LIVE for color), I am doing a much requested post about how I edit my Instagram + blog photos! From light + airy to bright + colorful, creating the perfect ‘feed‘ all comes down to what programs you are using to edit your photos, so I am rounding up some of my favorite apps along with what I use to snap the perfect ‘insta-worthy‘ photo!

    First thing is first…my equipment!

    http://bit.ly/2xxeoboFor years (and pretty much ever since I started blogging) my go-to camera has been my Canon Rebel T2i (newest version T6 available HERE). It is a nifty camera that captures the perfect shots + is under $500! While the more expensive the camera, the better the features and sharper the image, I truly feel this is the PERFECT camera for anyone wanting to get amazing quality images without breaking the bank!

    My lens of choice is the 50mm (under $150) and this helps achieve the ‘object in focus + background blurred‘ effect that so many bloggers have for their photos.

     The rebel is able to capture video in addition to photography and you can always ‘up’ it’s game by swapping out lenses and programming.

    I typically shoot a few times a week and upload directly onto my computer however if I need to post on the go, I use the Eyefi mobile memory card that connects to an app on your phone so all of the photos from the memory card sync directly onto your phone for instant editing and uploading! It is truly the best thing ever for a blogger on the go. Most cameras have built in wi-fi at this point but if your camera doesn’t, this is a great solution that is affordable (under $50).

    Now that you snapped the perfect photo, it is time to get to the editing! Below is a roundup of some of my favorite programs I use both on my computer and on mobile to edit everything from my skin to lighting to color + more!

    1.Lightroom – I use Lightroom on every single photo I take. It allows you to mass edit your photos + copy and paste settings so all of the photos in your collections are consistent. I typically upload all of my photos from my iPhone + camera into Lightroom, categorize them into various collections + then get to editing. Lightroom is packed with various ‘presets‘ that are pre established editing settings helping make editing photos easier. To get more curated presets for a certain aesthetic, see programs 3 + 4!

    2.Photoshop – I mainly use Photoshop to remove unwanted objects from an image, create collages or make any more aggressive edits other than basic lighting, saturation + hue.

    3.VSCO – This is one of the most common used editing apps. This app is available on your phone and also has presets to load into your Lightroom program. Whether you are brightening, fading, saturating or more, this app has everything you need to perfect your edits.

    4.Dreamy Presets I LOVE Dreamy Presets! For the past year, all of my photos have a Dreamy Preset edit on them. I love their Santorini and Barcelona preset collections. They are easy to download and add to your Lightroom program and they make editing photos so much easier. They save me time and make all of my photos stay consistent, just look at my feed below! Head over to their site + use code MISSYONMADISON at checkout for an extra discount!

    iPhone apps 4 – 6 are perfect for those ‘finishing touches’…

    5.Airbrush – I put every image I plan on posting on Instagram through Airbrush + simply hit the ‘magic wand‘ button. It instantly gives the photo an airbrushed effect + balances the color + lighting.

    6.Facetune – The Facetune app is great for smoothing your skin, fixing those out of place hairs, removing blemishes etc.

    7.Snapseed – I LOVE this app! So you know when you have a photo + only certain areas need retouching (whether it be removing shadows, adding brightness etc), well Snapseed is great for editing those hard to get areas without editing the entire photo. I use it on flatlays where the lighting may not be even, head shots where only certain spots need saturation (lips, eyes etc) + more.

    PLANNING is KEY!

    In order to plan out what my Instagram feed will look like, I use an app called Planoly. It is truly a lifesaver. It allows you to see what images work best with your feed, imports your current Instagram layout + even allows you to move around photos to assure it ‘flows’ (my boyfriend hates when I ask him a million times if my feed ‘flows‘ but hey now-a-days it plays a big role in growing your Instagram audience).

    Happy Weekend Loves ♥ One of my missions when arriving in London was to do a photoshoot with the classic red phone booths by Big Ben. The iconic London sites became my playground for the day as I went in tow with all of my outfits from place to place to capture the perfect outfit shots! In case you ever wondered the amount of work that goes into blogging, here is a little glimpse. Before heading to London I pre-planned every location I wanted to shoot at AND the outfit I wanted to wear at said location (although on social media it looks effortless, I will be the first to tell ya…there is plenty of effort involved haha :p). Since I am one who loves pops of color, red on red made perfect sense in my book 😉

    This red coat was my immediate go-to throughout my London trip. I don’t know why, but I felt this red coat was just so London haha

    Since I wanted all the red pieces to make a statement (and match the phone booth) I paired the coat with this black + white polka dot dress. It was a clearance find at Old Navy + it is perfect for work or play! It fits great + is flattering on all body types.

    This little teddy bear was a surprise Mike packed in my outfit bag before I went out to shoot (talk about #relationshipgoals – yes I am such a mush haha). We got the teddy at the Tower Of London tour where we checked out the Queen’s Jewels + medieval castles which brought me back to my AP European History days in high school 😉

    You can never go wrong with a red bag + shoes, they stand out + dress up any look – even for those that are on the more simple side when it comes to color.

    Je t’aime Paris ♥

    I have dreamed of visiting Paris ever since I was a little girl. I figured one day I would fall in love and go visit the Eiffel Tower and kiss under the glittering lights…you know something straight out of a romantic comedy…and guess what – IT HAPPENED! Yes, I got to have the most amazing trip to Paris from the moment I landed till the second I took off back for London. Paris is such a magical city. Filled with boutique shops, amazing architecture + delicious food – what made it even better was our amazing stay at the ever so chic Hotel Square Louvois located in the center of all the action (literally just 5 minutes from Musée du Louvre)!

    While Paris was busy as ever (it was Paris Fashion Week) when I visited, it still had all the charm + romance I expected. We arrived at Hotel Square Louvois to a bright + cheery staff whom held our bags while we explored the local cafes before our check in. Once we returned, the staff gave us a full tour of the hotel (including their AMAZING spa that looks like an island grotto) + the adorable kitchen area where they serve a delicious breakfast every morning.

    Besides the amazing amenities, my favorite part (as usual at any hotel) was the comfy bed + robe. There is nothing I love more than taking a nice long bath + curling up in bed wearing a cozy bathrobe. (I loved it so much, anytime we were in the room, I kept it on – so did Mike hehe :p)

    So while I LOVED the bed, we couldn’t spend our entire trip in the room sooo we went out exploring, before which we headed to the kitchen for a yummy breakfast filled with eggs, pastries, meats, coffee + more.

    I began taking photos (for this post) + the waiter happened to notice (I guess it is kinda obvious who a blogger is when you see them setting up flatlays on the table hehe). Luckily he LOVED it and made me a pretty cappuccino, provided me macaroons (because every blogger needs them for a good photo duh) + even provided a tray to set up a little breakfast in bed scenario. He was so sweet, supportive + had a great eye for photography let me tell ya haha He was my Paris angel when it came to hotel photography.

    What I loved most about Hotel Square Louvois was it’s central location to everything. It took us 15 minutes to Uber to the Eiffel Tower, a 5 minute walk to Musée du Louvre + moreMike + I visited both of these sites during our stay…they were stunning to say the least, I now know why everyone falls in love with the city of Paris. More outfit shots to come…

    Happy Thursday Babes! I am off to LONDON + PARIS today! Unreal to think this is my first time to ever head outside the country + the first time I get to see Mike since he headed over to London for work 🙂 In my mind, London will be filled with the best outfit shoot locations, amazing culture + plenty of…you guessed it haha shopping (trust me Mike is super excited about that aspect of my visit jk haha :p #SorryNotSorry) The most exciting part of going on this trip is the fact that it is a brand new adventure outside of my comfort zone – even better, when I return from the UK I am also opening a new chapter with an exciting new role at an amazing company (stay tuned for deets :p *hint hint* it involves cute outfits, stellar photoshoots + kick ass influencers – yay!)

    But back to my trip…I will be gone for two weeks + already have all of my outfit shoot locations picked out (be sure to follow me on Instagram to see my InstaStories along the way with my fav places to check out – @MissyOnMadison). From heading to Sketch for afternoon tea to getting photos at the adorable red phone booths, London is sure to be insta-worthy all the way!

    In preparation for my trip, I partnered up with one of my favorite brands, Vera Bradley to head out of the country in style!

    My little England keychain was actually a present from Kristi when she visited Harrods in London (you know that is my first stop hehe) ♥http://bit.ly/2xxeobohttp://bit.ly/2xxeobo

    From their adorable rolling luggage sets to their colorful passport covers, Vera Bradley has everything you need for a stylish trip ahead. I honestly can’t get enough of their travel essentials – they are bold and bright, making them easy to spot at baggage claim hehe AND they are super functional + are amazing quality (now that is what I call a Win/Win)!

    My trip to London is quickly approaching + that means time to PACK! So while I am still planning all of my looks for London (and Paris – yes we are going to head to Paris for a few days, yay!) I already have my skincare + haircare essentials down pat since I found the best travel size options to bring abroad from Ulta (my go to place for all things hair, skin + beauty)!

    Check out some of my favorites below – travel size options are also a great way to test out a product you may want to buy full size without making the commitment 😉 So if you have commitment issues haha Then travel size hair + skin care work well for year round usage.

    Pictured are my current favorites – the Mario Badescu Travel Size Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea is beyond refreshing + makes for the perfect spritz you need to keep yourself feeling fresh on the plane! Also, I already love Formula 10.0.6 so their travel products will keep my oily skin at bay while I am away for two weeks (hey every gal needs herself a good face mask, what can I say) :p
