How AMAZE is this sketch Hayley drew for me?! #MrsLombardi
Hayley Paige is not only one of my favorite designers, but she has defined #GirlBoss in so many ways… Oh and also #WeddingGoals at her very own wedding. (Just scroll down and see photos from her wedding– she had a unicorn… How is that not goals you guys?!) Not only does she design wedding gowns, but I’ve been lucky enough to wear one of her designs one a red carpet, which is now called “The Nastia” dress!! It was literally a DREAM.
So for all of you newly engaged brides, or just fashion lovers, make sure you follow Hayley on her instagram and check out all of her magical gowns!!
This unicorn though… *
How stunning does Hayley look at her wedding?! #RelationshipGoals
What are your morning rituals?
Our bulldog requires her morning belly rubs, so that’s first priority. Then I’ll grab a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee on my walk to work. It’s about a mile from my apartment to the office, so I throw in some jams or a great pod cast and become one with the manic morning hustle of NYC.
When you think of the word “successful”, who is the first person that comes to your mind?
My dad. He shows true talent and love for what he does; that has always inspired me. He’s a general surgeon and saved countless lives (including my husband’s). I think a lot of my perspective in life comes from having a doctor in the family.
What is your favorite book?
The Rainbow Fish. I am sure you were looking for a novel type answer, but there is something about the books I was exposed to as a child that stayed with me forever. I also love Shel Silverstein’s, A Light in the Attic.
What would you tell your 16 year old self?
Learn Spanish and drink less Diet Coke.
Do you have a quote you live your life by or think of often?
Hustle and heart will set you apart.
What do you believe is true, even if you can’t prove it?
Everything happens for a reason.
What inspires you?
Happiness and hard working humans.
*(Queen Bee, the “unicorn,” was a rescue horse from Reno Riding. She was rescued in poor health but was cared for and brought back to good health by the Reno Riding team, who is passionate about animals. Reno Riding used a non-toxic and safe temporary color made specifically for horses by Top Performance Pet Products for Hayley’s wedding day. Hayley is an animal lover and her family gave a donation to the children’s hospital where this horse frequently visits to cheer up the resident patients. Queen Bee was pampered throughout the day, and treated like the Queen she is!)
