Falling in Love: Casey + Nicole 2015

On April 7, 2015 I took the bus up to New York for the weekend, with many items on the agenda. You know things such as spending the weekend with one of my faves, nail connoisseur, lash finesser, one showing love to all people, Zsameria, reuniting us with our good friend, maker, mother, DIYer, Janine and giving us 3 days and 2 nights with our actress of a friend, Amelia. Guess what? It didn’t stop there. For me, I also had a date with Nicole + all of her bridesmaids. I thought I was simply going to assist with the event, which was an intimate gathering officially letting all the ladies know they were members of Nicole’s bride tribe! Little did I know, that I would be receiving a gift as well, a journal, with the following handwritten note inside:

“Shayla, who else could help me plan our wedding but you? Fashionista, Style Expert, Humble Diva, Awesome Sister Friend!!!! Thank you so much for being such a beautiful and caring woman. I admire you inside and out. You make my world brighter, warmer + happier just by being there. You are God’s gift to me at
