i think that i finally found the perfect red lipstick today!
Red Lizard by NARS.

tested out pretty much most colors in the store today and settled on this one.
pretty psyched, but now also pretty broke after a pre-wedding trip to sephora...

i'm still here!


sorry for the disappearing act most of this week. i've been under the weather due to the allergies and insane sinusitis i've been battling for a little while now and i'm trying everything in my power to get better before that big day that is looming in the very very near future (2 weeks! ahh!) this even means i've been doing my doctors tell me! unfortunately this means i finally start my prednisone (steroid) pack and find myself WIDE AWAKE and unable to sleep at 230am, grand.

this then leads to a very random post, filled with a very wonderful and random collection of things i wish to share with all of you..

1. are you aware the nicholas cage is a vampire?

2. Genius awards were announced this week and sadly i have been overlooked again... (yay for Jad!)

3. the emmys happened and i loved this dress on anna faris (also her hubbies is too cute)

4. know what time it is?

5. also i got a pumpkin spice latte the other day and it was like $4.70. (why must you be so cruel starbucks... stop charging me extra for soy)

6. fall tv premieres have arrived and my couch potato ass is in heaven :) happy to have Parks & Rec back and currently digging The New Girl and Up All Night as new shows. any others i should check out?

7. one week left for the celebratory 18% OFF sale over at my etsy shop! also i'm only 11 sales away from 100! how crazy is that? everyone is the best EVER.

8. oh and thats just a random photo that i took when i was at Terrain last week ;)

thank goodness the weekend is almost here!

famous by association

so apparently a note written by J.D. Salinger for his maid is on sale for $50,000.

if you can't read his handwriting above, the note says

"Dear Mary — Please make sure all the errands are done before you go on vacation, as I do not want to be bothered with insignificant things. Thank you. J.D. Salinger"

which ok, is hilarious, but worth 50K? hmmm.

most wonderful time of the year.


it really is the most wonderful time of the year. there's a slight hint of crisp in the air (ok maybe not the past couple of days, but they are calling for CHILLY mornings this weekend ;) and pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin beer is EVERYWHERE!

yesterday was a pretty exciting day, bryan and i have now obtained a marriage license from the great state of Delaware! fabulous. after that momentous (or you know completely anticlimactic) event, we stopped over at Terrain at Styer's to get some inspiration and actual items for our wedding decor. that place is ever so lovely and was really embracing the coming season. i snapped a few pics, smelled a lot of awesome soap, and we left with a basketful of tiny white pumpkins and funky white and green gourds. this weekend we're testing out the table decor (did i mention we, and by we i mean my mom and her friends, made our own table runners?)

can't believe it is all so soon! oh and we just got pictures back from our little engagement photo shoot! yes, of course they are cheesy but we love them and i'm sure ill have to share those soon ;)

i just love these cards from Sycamore Street Press, an Utah based company run by a married couple.

a few new items

i've been trying my hardest to get some new items and new photos done. and i was able to sneak two new items into the shop recently, the Fairhill braided knit scarf and the Waverly drawstring cowl in a new awesome cobalt blue color.

just as a heads up, with the impending wedding and honeymoon (yay!) i'm going to be closing down the shop for most of the month of october. i'll be back for the holidays in november, but feel free to be super responsible and get a head start on your shopping early!

also be on the look out for a little celebratory sale towards the end of the month ;)

i remember

i remember sitting in 11th grade english when a classmate came in and told us to turn on the tv.
i remember watching with my peers as the second plane hit & having no idea where we would go from here.
i remember hearing part of the pentagon had collapsed and hoping my cousin's husband got out safely.

i remember so much of the heartache, the confusion, the anger, but most of all the hope.

Thursday, September 8, 2011


lately the combined effects of long work days, finishing up wedding planning (it's only a month away!?!) and crazy sinus pressure have left me completely exhausted and uninspired.

thankfully there's the internet and creative people like this and this and this to bring me (and all of you) lovely images like those above.

oh and thank goodness its cool enough outside now for enjoying many many cups of tea ;)

sucha a sucker for a period drama...

this weekend i got completely sucked into the first three episodes of the british show The Hour (currently airing in the states on BBC America). it's a little like Mad Men but with MURDER! i'm loving the cast and the insane amount of chemistry going on between the leads. also was delighted to find out that McNulty from The Wire is british?

in true british fashion though there are only 6 total episodes so i'll be a little sad to see this one end so soon.

currently coveting: boo + boo factory

i absolutely adore the completely unique and bold, colorful jewelry designs of boo + boo factory. the forms are somehow both organic and mechanical. i'm such a sucker for almost obsessive work and i feel like each piece requires plenty of time hunched over with an exacto blade making everything just right.
