Eek, sorry it has been so long since my last blog post. I really did just disappear. So much has happened in the last month that it really seems like a dream/blur. Here’s a little recap:
Hurricane Sandy came leaving NYC & Brooklyn in crisis mode with no public transportation. We luckily had no damage but some friends were stranded in our cozy little Brooklyn apartment. My two week vacation time was increased to almost three because of Sandy (no complaints here). I did heroically show up at work (after a two hour walk!) the Friday before vacation out of guilt.
Ah, yes – I went to South Africa! Tim and I had an amazing, amazing time and I hope to put together a little photo set & any recs for anyone with SA on their list. Shark Tank aired featuring Nearly Newlywed. I made a brief cameo & Jackie killed it, you can watch it here.
Thanksgiving was full of turkey & jet lag. And now it’s December – a time of holiday cards, gifts, cheesy christmas parties, and when work really drags. I’m excited to get back into it and post some gift guides!

Do you guys have a fall tradition? I usually always want to go pumpkin or apple picking but usually never get around to it. One tradition we’ve been sticking to is pumpkin carving. I’m terrible at it but we drink apple cider/wine and everyone gets competitive Thanks for Ben & Kel for hosting! x
I’ve been doing a lot of work on the computer and any chance I get – I step away from the computer (hence the lack of FM posts)! I laughed out loud when I stumbled upon this print, I’d love to hang it right by my desk.
I really do enjoy reading books but sadly, I don’t even remember the last book I read. I’ve been so consumed in the computer these days that I really don’t have time. But with my upcoming vacation and the long flight (18 hours?!), I’m looking forward to having some, well – a lot of time to read. Do you have any recommendations? Old, new, favorites? Please share!
Here’s a few of my favorite books. It’s a random little group, but if you haven’t read any of them you should!
Last night, I had the privilege of attending the Martha Stewart Weddings Bridal Party! The party was fabulous with nail & brow stations, lots of sweets, a cheese & cracker bar, & even cocktails with edible cups from Loliware (bottom photos). Martha even officiated a wedding herself at the event, you can watch it here.
Happy Friday! I’m heading back to PA this weekend for a very fall weekend & to dogsit Oscar. I’m hoping to get to the park, eat some s’mores & start packing for vacation! Have a lovely weekend! x

Happy Friday! Here’s a little inspiration to get crafty this weekend (I need it!). Meet my new artist crush - Julia Goodman. In the photos above, Goodman is creating a papyrus solely of beets. Read more about Julia here via In the Make (my new favorite site). I kinda want to just move to California right now, so I can take one of her papermaking workshops.
Eek! Long time, no see! Posting will be back to the regular soon, I’ve been too busy watching this. But in the meantime wanted to share with you this rad store Tim found – Aloha from Deer. Fun & quirky printed gear. I’d love a sweatshirt to cozy into.
PS – new little makeover coming to favorable mention. i’m beyond pumped. as soon as i know when it will go live, i will spread the word, xx
