Another Friday, another new sponsor! Blush Boutique is signing on as the Feature Friday sponsor for the next two weeks.

We know the weather is hot, summer is still in full swing – the last thing on your mind is fall…but we’re diving right in. Blush is already stocking up on must-have fashions for next season at their Orchard Park and Elmwood Ave locations. AND they’re gearing up to open their third store – Main Street in Williamsville on August 31. With locations all over WNY, there is now literally no reason NOT to shop local. Plus, Blush has a bumpin’ Instagram account that is constantly updated with their latest looks, sales, accessories, etc. So, for the next two weeks we’re showcasing Blush styles you (or your girlfriend or friend that’s a girl) will want to have.

And the Winner is…

@morninggloryblog aka Ashley Schaffert aka Morning Glory Blogger! Sure, anyone can take a picture of flowers, but this shot is way more than that. The lighting, the shadow from the window, the rustic bouquet – damn girl! Word on the street is that Ashley is breaking into the wedding photography scene, so definitely keep an eye out for that. Be sure to check out the rest of her account, it’s full of awesome nautical shit and shots from around the city. Congrats Ashley! Email us at for details on how to obtain your gift card to Blush and your signature “Buffalo is the New Black” tee.

Wedding blooms.

I love so many things about working here at the @hotelatthelafayette, but the summer garden in the parking lot might be my favorite
