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.

I kicked off this Monday with a trip to the travel doctor. Now that our trip is pretty much booked, I had to get a few recommended shots & prescriptions. I’ve always hated getting needles, so when the doctor asked if I’d like a shot or a prescription for a few pills instead, I took the pills.
Happy weekend! I cannot believe this is the last weekend before Labor Day, this summer has flown by and somehow I have failed in getting a tan. What are your weekend plans? I’m planning on making it a very summery weekend – Brooklyn Flea (1st time!), Shake Shack, & margaritas!
Check out this amazing Brooklyn backyard via Modernica. I’d love if our backyard could magically turn into this but I’ll keep my mouth shut since it’s amazing to even have some outdoor space. Hopefully I can plant some flowers / get a tan this weekend! Have a good one! x
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.
I hate to be a Debbie Downer but fall is coming. This means closed toe shoes. This makes me sad, but after stumbling across Kith NYC – it’s not so bad…for the guys. They carry one of a kind shoes and I love the way they are photographed outside.
happy friday!! this week has been a big one. my sister-in-law was in town visiting & oh, we have decided to officially move to brooklyn! we checked out an apartment about 6 months ago and fell in love, but the landlord ended up giving it to someone who was in front of us & made more money. we were bummed. BUT this week we got a call from the landlord telling us about another apartment in the building that’s now open. it seemed like a miracle – things like this don’t really happen to me…or in nyc for that matter. anyways we checked out the apartment and it’s big, airy, clean & get this – has a peach tree in the backyard!! we were sold. so we will be signing the lease and moving august 1! so excited, so get ready for lots of apartment inspiration boards
anyways, i’m heading out of the city for the weekend. road tripping it to delaware with my old college roommate for a friend’s bridal shower! have a good one! xx

Today’s the day I’ve been dreading for a long time – Lilo’s last day! We’ve had her for exactly two months today and have definitely grown used to her diva girl attitude – knocking your cell phone off the table, cleaning herself immediately after you pet her when she’s in a bad mood & biting your toes if they’re hanging off the bed. We’re so sad to see her go, but she is moving to Greenpoint where we hope she’ll be spoiled & happy.
This photo was taken this past weekend during the ombre hair photo shoot. We’ll be fostering #4 soon, so I’ll be sure to post pics of the next little one. xx

A few weeks ago I talked about ombre hair. I never thought I’d go through with it, but after some encouragement from some of you & friends – I thought, why not? I was referred to a high end salon but after seeing a pricey $300+ price tag I decided to search for a salon on my own. I came across Fox & Jane Salon, the price was more than half the price of the previous salon, they had great reviews, and they’re located a couple blocks away from my apartment. I was sold. I went in last Tuesday and I honestly love how it came out, most of the people I work with didn’t even notice because it’s pretty subtle. I highly recommend it if anyone is interested – it’s really perfect for summer!
