This week’s guest bloggers are Val and Cindy from the Blue Violet Flowers & Gifts shop in Warrington!

Many pass this adorable store on Route 611 at Bristol Road, but have you stopped in?  Known primarily for their incredible bridal and prom flowers, they also have adorable and unique gifts for every occasion!   Recently I went in for flowers and came out with not only the flowers but the most darling set of baby socks (which saved me a separate gift run) and a delicious bag of gourmet popcorn (cause why not treat myself?).  The store is displayed perfectly and each section sucks you farther in.  Definitely stop by – you will love it and you will not leave empty handed!

If you have prom goers in the Bucks County area, chances are you’ve heard that THE place to order from is Blue Violet.  Known to have the best, most up-to-date, and just downright perfect prom flowers, we tapped their expertise this week!  We had to get it now because with the tsunami of spring bridal and prom orders speeding their way they won’t have much time for blogging…

Tone Up For the Wedding & Become a #FitWifeForLife

Guest Blogger:  Stephanie Boyne, Certified Fitness Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor

virtual bootcamp workout programAside from the many awesome aspects of my job, I get to blog.   I like to feature different vendors, brides, my staff, etc., and this time I want to feature someone who has her own awesome business who also happens to be my friend.  She is down to earth, real, funny, and she gets it.

One of her passions is fitness and I want to feature her now because 1) it’s bridal season and 2) every day I hear women say, “Well, I’m going to lose weight for the wedding.”

I’m writing this blog so you can actually do that – not only for the wedding, but for long after.

Stephanie Boyne has taught group fitness classes for the past 14 years at LaCrest, the YMCA, and for the past four years she’s been at Cornerstone teaching large groups and small Tribe groups.  She’s seen a lot over those years and one thing is universal.  When lives become too busy, one of the first things that falls by the wayside is a fitness regimen.
