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

Big news! Favorable Mention got a makeover! I’m excited to have a cleaner, fresher look. Let me know if you have trouble accessing anything, as I’m still working on some updates! Next up I’ll be attacking my portfolio, so you can see all the fun things I’ve been up to. xx
PS – Thanks to the amazing Brandi Bernoskie for all your wonderful help!
My life is quickly progressing. I’ve gone from eating at a coffee table for the past 4+ years, to a lovely farm table. I no longer have to pull out an entire drawer in order to open another one in my dresser. And now I’ve upgraded from lying on bed with my laptop on top of my chest to a bright white, clean workspace. My mom recently picked up this set from Home Depot as a apartment warming gift. Tim put it together on Monday and voila! A place to work, feels so good! I highly recommend it – it’s sturdy and Martha Stewart.
I’m alive! Sorry for being MIA, I’ve been preparing for a very busy (and exciting) September full of photo shoots & weddings! This past weekend was our Nearly Newlywed shoot in CT. Tim did an amazing job shooting, the models rocked it and the dresses have somehow become even more amazing. I loved wearing this one.
Here are a few sneak peeks from the shoot, posted this weekend on NN’s Facebook page. PS how gorgeous are those 2H Flower bouquets?! They went beautifully with every dress. Love!
It’s here, the last summer Friday. I could cry! But that doesn’t mean that I won’t be savoring every last minute. I am off to the beach this weekend to hopefully get rid of my pasty pale skin. Wish us luck because we are bringing Jimmy on the train. Let’s hope he travels just like Lilo. Have a great long weekend, I plan on stargazing, bike riding, watermelon eating, & barbecuing all weekend. x
