Talk Bubble Paperclips, ATB, Fred at X-Treme Geek.com

I recently went to a beautiful garden wedding where the bride looked radiant in white and the bridal party and groomsmen where matching in verbena green accessories. It was a pretty informal affair, with the groom strumming a song on his acoustic guitar as the bride walked down the aisle. This non-traditional ceremony ended with all the attendees blowing bubbles instead of throwing rice or confetti. I haven't seen the pictures yet, but I'm sure that the bride and groom looked amazing with bubbles surrounding them. When I found the Bubble Necklace at the MoMA store recently, I realized I could get the same look without getting drenched in soapy solution (or hitched!). Made of Murano glass beads, the beads look like they're effortlessly floating on your decolletage. While they're harder to pop, be careful not to break any of the glass bubbles!Price: $103.50-$115Who Found It: BethC was first to add the Bubble Necklace to the Hive.
Lately I have become somewhat of a hermit at night. My close friends were the first to take notice. And after a dozen or so rejected invitations to dinners and movies, how could they not? They were suspicious of my new time-consuming nighttime activity and questioned my whereabouts. But when I finally unveiled where I had been spending my evenings, it was a bit anti-climatic. No, there's no new boyfriend, no scandalous activities. I have simply become addicted to nightly baths. What was once a childhood activity filled with barbie dolls, laughter and candy scented bubble bath, has transformed into the perfect way for me to unwind after a long day. I love everything about baths, from the drawing of the water, to the smell of my lavender soap, to the way the whole bathroom turns into a sauna with steam. They are calming yet invigorating, and afterwards I feel oh so clean and refreshed! So, I scoured the Hive for items I would include in my perfect bath. My dream bathroom setting would be mostly romance-themed, but with whimsical accessories. I'm a fan of the modern style tubs, but my dream for claw-feat overpowers my desire for contemporary. My bath would also be sure to include an assortment of handmade organic soaps and scrubs, in a fun shapes and indulgent smells. So spoil your senses with a bath tonight!
