Here it is, folks! Something we've been working on for months now--we are beyond excited to share with you this amazing milestone. In line with our fifth year anniversary this April 2015, we decided to launch a new and improved Bride and Breakfast. Partnering with the super talented design studio NS Design Co. and website developer Gian Aguilar, we were able to create a new look that is all about tastefulness and functionality.Throughout our five years of blogging, we've gotten to know more and more about our readers, and the new logo is really all about the B&B bride. She's sophisticated yet playful, she is strong, adventurous, and has the heart of a dreamer. And we knew the soul of the blog had to be all about her. We've had the wonderful privilege of working with Written Word Calligraphy, and all I can say is that she is a genius! We still get butterflies in our stomach every time we look at it--pretty, pretty, pretty! Yup, this redesign was born through a lot of sleepless nights (and some occasional tear-shedding), but it is all worth it!As we've spent day after day with all of you, we found ourselves realizing the essence of Bride and Breakfast--tastefulness. The new site is cleaner, sleeker, and centered on simplicity... yup, less is more! We also made sure that you will have an easier time navigating the blog and going through our now extensive archive of posts. Stay tuned because in the coming weeks, we will be discussing how these functions will make your inspiration hunting a breeze.And just when you think this announcement is already a huge deal for us, we have one more big reveal. Today, we get to tick off something in our bucket list--to have another branch in Asia, (drum roll please...). Bride and Breakfast Hong Kong launches today as well! I can't even begin to explain how exciting this is for us! How cool is it that you have an option to read it in English or Chinese?!Ok, so I am nervous, excited, happy, hyperventilating and pumped up on adrenaline... I really, really, really hope you like the new look of Bride and Breakfast! On behalf of myself and the whole team behind B&B, let's pop some virtual champagne and celebrate!

As 2012 came to a close, we could not help but be in awe of the many things that happened for Bride and Breakfast--a totally revamped site, our very first full editorial, and of course the countless beautiful wedding inspirations that we got to feature. Blessed by wonderful new friendships with suppliers and faithful readers, I felt that yes, this is home.We wanted to give a small token of appreciation to the friends we've made in the industry--hopefully 2013 will triple that number! So the hunt for the perfect gift took place. I wanted it to symbolize something, something special. It may be cheesy, but then again, I live in a world of artists and hopeless romantics right?Voila! We chanced upon Rocks Gourmet Salt, in truffle flavor. What used to be a condiment I could only find abroad, I was beyond thrilled that I found a local supplier! Plus, it was already tastefully packaged so I didn't have to worry about gift wrapping anymore. Truffle salt is amazing with scrambled eggs or white sauce pasta. Yum!!!Salt is one of the things that symbolize life, abundance, and flavor. Very appropriate for what we wish for all our partners in the industry... and for all our readers as well. I hope this 2013 will be a "salty" year of romance, creativity and beauty. I also love how they also put a Bible verse in the back. It really reminds me of how God was the one who blessed our blog from the beginning.Note to self: I still need to send out some of the remaining gifts that are still with me... Ooops!
