the knit kid

Every now & then there is an Etsy shop that I just can’t get enough of. Right now it’s The Knit Kid. All pieces are made the order, the color combos are perfect, & they’re made in Berlin. I’d love a pair of the knitted shorts (in yellow) & a dress.



fall wishlist #1



I’m in desperate need of some fall gear, especially a jacket. I’ve been lusting over capes for the last two years, let’s hope this is the year I’ll finally pick one up! Here’s a few of my favorites:

Blog Bash NYC

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. 🙂

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.

Etsy Weddings

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of going to Etsy’s first wedding event, To Have & To Hold. The decorations were adorable, the sweets were delicious, & the products were beautiful.  We all left with an Etsy swag bag that included a ton of postcards & business cards of participating vendors. Here are a few of my favorites: Spoonflower, Urban Wood Goods, Tuck & Bonte, Moontree Letterpress, & Native Bear.

With this event, Etsy has also launched a registry & Etsy Weddings, an easier & bigger online hub for brides to be. This site includes trend reports, style boards, & real weddings. Check it out here.

spring makeover

This past weekend, my roommate painted a wall in our living room Benjamin Moore’s cool aqua.  The color is refreshing & this one wall has completely changed the look of the room & has us in full makeover mode. Here are some pieces & ideas I’ve stumbled upon while shopping around, splurges & steals.
