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
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.
This Saturday I had the privilege of attending Blog Bash NYC, a fun meetup for NYC bloggers. It’s always fun to actually meet in person after checking out someone’s blog/commenting. Thrown by Rebecca from A Daily Something & Michelle Edgemont, Blog Bash was full of amazing decor. Here’s a few photos from the event. I wish I got photos of the flowers by True Florette from the event, they were gorgeous.
We received these awesome swag bags from Blog Bash. They were full of such crafty & creative items, I love them all. Rebecca put together adorable mini craft kits. Thanks to all the sponsors – Knot & Bow, Paper and Olives, Tim Gibson Photography, Pink Olive, Doodads & Noodles, M. Wild’s Studio, Brooklyn Slate Company, Curious Creatures, Pins & Needles, Yes Jess, Ravenna Girls, and the list goes on!
PS had to add this photo of Jimmy stealing my Knot & Bow gift tags.
Like most people, I could not stop watching the Olympics this weekend. There’s so much anticipation & you can never tell what is going to happen. Sadly, the work week has crept back up on us and I have resorted to admiring these Olympic beauties from Culture Label. Would be so fun to host an Olympic viewing party with those Olympic ring headpieces. So fun!
I love craft supplies and basically anything else that clutters up my apartment. My new store crush is we love citrus. All their items are adorable & bright, perfect for entertaining or gifting. Here are some things on my wishlist.
No pool party would be complete without one of these floats! I love the pretzel float!
Normally, I am not an ice cream person – but this past weekend I had ice cream 3 times , so I am certainly on a kick A few weeks ago, I complained that NY didn’t have enough ice cream shops (it’s true!) and Kelly recommended Van Leeuwen’s Artisan Ice Cream. I finally got a chance to try some Friday and it is amazing! While I was visiting one of the trucks, I tried the Earl Grey and I have not been able to stop thinking about it. This week I have a date with VLAIC, but if you aren’t close to a truck, try this homemade Earl Grey Ice Cream recipe.
Happy Friday! This went by fast but I’m ready for the weekend. Tomorrow I’ll be attending Etsy’s first wedding event, To Have & To Hold. I’m excited to learn about new vendors & support the independent ones.
I just found out about this place, the Painting Lounge, in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) and I am trying to decide which night to go. For around $60 you can spend a few hours painting your favorite artists’ masterpiece. The Painting Lounge provides all the art supplies, all you have to do is show up and it’s BYOB A few years ago I went to Color Me Mine in Tribeca and it was one of the most relaxing nights ever. It would be fun to go with a group of friends or solo to meet some new ones.
I have been in a serious slump when it comes to dinner. I’m tired of the typical after work dinners (stir fry, pasta, fish & potatoes) and need something different (and a bit healthier) – I need some inspiration. Love and Lemons to the rescue! Started by a couple in Austin, Texas – Love and Lemons is not only designed well but also has great colorful, fresh recipes.
