Warby Parker

I've had my same pair of glasses for about 5 years now and am itching to get a new pair. Since I really only wear them to and from bed I have a problem buying super expensive ones. Warby Parker is a fairly new company that sells all of their glasses for only $95, with free shipping and you can return them as many times as it takes you to find the perfect pair. And if that's not reason enough to buy from them - for every pair you buy someone in need gets their own pair. How can you not want to buy from them?


Seeing that I read about 100 blogs on a daily basis, I enter giveaways all the time. Nothing ever happens from it but it's fun to enter anyway. Until yesterday...I won the Debbi Carlos  giveaway over at Simply Lovely! Thanks so much Joslyn!



Thanksgiving weekend was a blast but unfortunately I didn't take very many good photos. I may or may not post a few later today. So instead here are some festive goodies.
ring, mug and plate, headband, confetti, bracelet, clothes pins, dress, TOMS, jotter


Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm clocking out and heading down to DC to be with my family for the holiday. Hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving! Cheers!

My Weekend

The best breakfast sandwhich I've ever had, williamsburg and etsy. How was your weekend?


Happy Friday!

Happy Friday y'all! What are you up to this weekend? I'm hoping to work on some etsy-related projects and bake something delicious to bring for Thanksgiving! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

P.s. Have you heard of the 30 for 30 project? While I think it's a great idea (especially for money-saving reasons), I don't know if I could do it. I guess I could make it a new years resolution for one month next year? What do you think?

Save the Dates

Seeing that we're both designers, Brett and I wanted to make our Save the Dates. Brett did most of the designing and I did all of the printing and cutting. We used two of the photos from our  engagement shoot. - one as the main part of the save the date and the other for a mini (fake) polaroid. It was a group effort and I think we're both happy with the results. Now on to the invitations...


If I Were a Boy

...I would totally wear bowties. Sold here.

Our Engagement Shoot: 35mm

  Here are a few of my favorite shots from our engagement shoot. All photos are by our good friend Dave.


My Weekend

The weather was simply gorgeous this weekend. We ate lots and lots of food (think we found our caterer) and relaxed by the wood stove. Now it's time to head back to the city. Hope you had a great weekend!


Succulents Galore

  Isn't this centerpiece amazing?


Very Happy Friday!

Can you believe it's less than two weeks from Thanksgiving and only a month til Christmas? Time really needs to start slowing down. What are you up to this weekend? Brett and I are going upstate and will be eating like kings and queens this weekend as we are going to be trying out a few caterers for our wedding. 

Here is a glimpse at one of the photos from our engagement shoot. It was taken by our uber talented friend Dave. I'll be back next week with the rest of the photos. Hope you have an amazing weekend!
