Groom Style – Ryan Images by Ruby Yeo &  Christine Lim 

Greetings from the USA! Actually, as I write today’s Friday Roundup, I’m in the gorgeous Santa Fe, New Mexico. This place is just stunning. Loads of art galleries, great food and creative types everywhere. Architecture that is so astoundingly different to other parts of the US (Las Vegas, I’m looking at you!), and a vibe that is just so relaxed. In the last week, I’ve renewed my vows in the crazy city of lights (watch out for that post!), gazed over the Grand Canyon, feasted on great Mexican food in Alberqueque, and generally enjoyed the sites of driving across the Navajo Desert.

I’ve also been keeping up to date with the happenings on the specialty blogs, so if you need a recap, or want to take advantage of some fantastic sales that are happening, read on my friends!
