If you know me even the slightest, I'm pretty conservative with my clothes, and rarely go for the "edgy" look. However, when I was shopping at my favorite store, Edith Hart, owned by one of my favorite people, I fell in love.
I just had to have it. It was completely necessary, and I'm 100% okay with the fact that I'll be eating Ramen noodles for the next month (or two...).
My jewelry designer bestie is LIVE on BaubleBar! It's been almost impossible to keep this secret, and I'm so happy the rest of the world can finally know! Her pieces are being sold through the website, and they are simply perfection.
Show her and BaubleBar some love and customize a necklace or bracelet, or both! They make excellent gifts, and what girl doesn't love something customized?
To see more of Madison's pieces, check out her website here.
This weekend was Jackie's Chicago bridal shower and it couldn't have been more perfect. My sister, Mom and I have been been planning for months, and we decided the theme would be nautical, "Jackie's Tying the Knot".
If you're like me, you eagerly check your mail box and hope for snail mail. More times then not, it's dumb direct marketing and mail for the old tenant.
I never get excited for emails (if you do, props to you), but I get oh-so-excited for pretty letters. There is something so old-fashioned and thoughtful about a handwritten card. I make any excuse to send a pretty card in the mail, in hopes it makes the recipient just as happy.
Aren't the above thank you cards très jolie? I know the last one isn't thank you specific, but it was just too cute not to include.
When I saw this bag, it really was love at first sight that I just had to share it with you all. It comes in three amazing colors, and even has a a removable clutch inside. Hello 2-in-1. Now to the tricky party, what color...
I'm thinking black. I can wear it to work, on the weekend running errands, and take the clutch out at night. It really is perfection.
When I started this blog, I was a lost post-grad living in NYC. I lacked creativity in my job, and found this to be my outlet to express anything and everything that made me happy.
The one thing I promised myself when starting this was that I would stop when it started to feel like a job.
No, I'm not stopping this blog.
But I feel that I owe it to you, my readers, to be honest. I'm finding it harder and harder to blog. It's not that I don't want to, but I'm struggling to find the creative spark I had when I started it. I'm not as proud of my posts as I used to, and it often feels like blogging is another thing on my to-do list.
I hold myself to very high standards, and one of them is having five blog posts a week. With my job, my brother's wedding and summer travel, this just isn't a reality anymore.
I hope that you all can understand why I'll be blogging less frequently - I'm hoping for three good posts a week.
YOU are the reason I blog, and this blog is the reason so many great things have happened to me. It's why I don't want to stop - I just want to make sure my posts are inspired by the things that have kept you all reading for so many months.
I love you all, and I promise I won't be completely checked out of the blogosphere.
