olympics crazed

Like most people, I could not stop watching the Olympics this weekend. There’s so much anticipation & you can never tell what is going to happen. Sadly, the work week has crept back up on us and I have resorted to admiring these Olympic beauties from Culture Label. Would be so fun to host an Olympic viewing party with those Olympic ring headpieces. So fun!

Bed Envy

How cool would it be to go to sleep every night in sheets like these? I fell in love with Deny Designs sheets.  There’s even an option to make your own sheets with a photo.  Priced at around $199 for a (twin) set – it’s definitely pricey, but if you’re someone like me who only sleeps with a fitted sheet (it always ends up at the end of the bed when I wake up, so I boycott them!) it can be affordable! Above are a few of my favorites!


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.

apartment finds – part one of many

As you may already know, I’m moving! This means I can’t really think about other things besides moving & furniture (which I never really cared about before). We have sold most of the little furniture we had and will be starting fresh which is a lot of fun because there are so many options out there.

The apt layout is one long rectangle with two pairs of french doors. I love how open it is but don’t want to clutter it up, so we are going to wait until we get in there to make some decisions. In the meantime, I’ve been searching for little trinkets and found a ton on Etsy. Here are a few that are at the top of my list.

bridal shower

Here are a few photos from Jewel’s bridal shower on Saturday. Her sister did an amazing job throwing it all together. Every detail was amazing from the peonies (in July!!) to the ombre cake. I felt like I was browsing Pinterest with all these cute & thoughtful ideas! They also had a candy bar & little notes to Jewel’s future hubby – Patrick. Can’t wait for the wedding! xx

we’re moving to..

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
