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 love getting mail, especially pretty mail. I also do love to send mail out, especially when it’s unexpected. Here are some of my “essentials” for sending some snail mail.
// one. washi tapes. (fun to decorate the envelope with/add some color) / two. alphabet stamps. (these are so fun to use, especially when addressing envelopes) / three. address book. (although I still have mine from high school, i’d love to upgrade one of these days) / four. sharpie marker. (it’s always fun to write big/takes away from the formality of writing a card/letter) / five. rifle paper co cards. (these are my favorite cards & i always have a pack stashed away – i’m a huge paper nerd!) //
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.
A few weeks ago, I letterpressed my friend Stephanie’s save the dates for her destination wedding. I took a letterpress class in the fall, so this was my first real project. Here are some photos from the actual production part, Tim came with me to get a few shots (and to help me calm down during my troubleshooting with the press)! I rented studio time at The Arm (ps they also run classes & workshops), I highly recommend it!
Stay tuned for the actual save the dates! Steph will be sending me the finished product soon (we collaborated), so I’ll be sharing that with you later xx

I don’t get flowers often but this past Friday I treated myself to this gorgeous little arrangement from 2H Flowers. I love how fresh flowers can just instantly brighten up a room. I met Kelly at Blogshop, who left the fashion industry to open up 2H, a flower shop out of her apartment (how cool is that!!?). She offers a variety of amazing arrangements that you can shop here, which also includes delivery – you really can’t beat that! I’d love to get the Zoe or York! Which one would you want?

When I think of coal, I think of coal mines (Hunger Games!) or grilling. Mixing both age-old Asian practice & Scandinavian design, Sort of Coal changes the way I ever viewed coal. White coal naturally purifies the air, body, or water. For example, the first item (the water bottle & white coal) – by placing the coal in the water, it absorbs chlorine & releases minerals. A coal this size is reusable for up to a month! The 2nd item, the Chikutan Sticks, will absorb impurities in your cocktail & give it a fresher taste. Check out their other products like shampoo, soap & necklaces – I’m tempted to try it!
I don’t drink rice wine, but I think I will after seeing this amazing moon glass from tale Co, ltd. The different levels at the bottom of the glass cause the moon’s change. The black glass is made for rice wine, but the white glass can be used for colored alcohol or tea.

D.S. & Durga is a husband & wife duo that handcrafts their perfume & cologne in small batches. Located in Brooklyn, each scent holds it’s own story and is labeled with a unique batch code.
I recently picked up Tim a bottle of “Italian Citrus”, which happened to be batch #11 (what are the odds?!). It’s the kind of cologne that’s not overpowering but it stays on and smells unique. It made a great gift and I’m curious to try the Limited Edition “Staghorn Sumac”. Check out their site, where you can read about each scent & order online.
