Headed to Maine

I’m off to Maine for a few weeks (my parents have a vacation home on the coast) and I am SO excited.  I don’t know why it takes thousands of miles and a complete change of scenery, but I manage to take a deep breath, get creative, feel accomplished, and relax all at the same time when I’m there.

Expect DIY projects, pictures of lobster, and swoon-worthy vintage!

Plus, up later this week: another installment of The Organized Creative series, with Clémence Herbillon of the incredible blog, Oh The Lovely Things!

Fun Stuff You Learn in Marriage

Today I bring to you part two of the Sony/Glam series featuring Sony’s latest film: Hope Springs.  Sony asked me to spill the deets about my crazy marriage, so here goes!

Full disclosure: this post is about bathroom habits, boogers, and marriage.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.  To be more specific, Sony asked that I share the “Hilarious Habits my Husband (or significant other) Hides.”  He hides nothing, people.  Nothing!  And that’s marriage, all of that best behavior they were on for all those years you dated, it was just that: “best behavior.”  Enjoy it while you can.  That’s not to say that I’m not completely obsessed with my husband, but apparently, I’m supposed to embrace the full package: the underwear left in front of the toilet, the hair they leave everywhere when they shave, the gas.

The point is, when you’re married, men leave little to the imagination.  Enjoy!

Little Love Notes

Dear LuckyFabb + New York Fashion Week, I can’t wait to visit!  (Tickets, booked.)

Dear Friday, I’m so glad you’re here.

Dear week, you have sucked.  We’re not friends at the moment.

Dear Doctors, when delivering crummy news to patients, I’d advise offering up some candy, or at least a sticker.  Just because I’m in my twenties, doesn’t mean a lollipop wouldn’t help.

Dear Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, thank you for your impeccable timing. Today, after work, I will buy boots I don’t need, a coat I most certainly don’t need (Miami is never actually cold), and I will eat a ridiculous plate of french fries at your fabulous cafe, where really I should be ordering salad — but I won’t.

Dress of the Week

This dress has been popping up all over Pinterest, and with good reason.  The open back and low-set bow, the doubled thin straps, and billowy organza and tulle layered skirt — all make for a perfectly gorgeous summer wedding dress. (Especially in hotter climates – you’ll be thanking your lucky stars for an airy backless number!)

I love a gorgeous backless dress – classy in the front, and just a bit daring in the back!  (I think I just described a mullet — a pretty couture mullet.)

Would you go backless on your wedding day?

Sending A Card

I miss getting an old-fashion card.  Sometimes amidst the hundreds of e-mails each day – business, sales, a million deals-of-the day, it’s nice to just get a personal note.

And JustWink has done just that.  JustWink is a greeting card mobile app, with the sweetest cards.  Now I can send sweet little love notes, jokes, and birthday cards a tad more thoughtful than the typical facebook wall post of today!

The app also happens to be incredibly adorable and fun to play with.  … not that I’m totally distracted at work or anything.

justWink is an awesome collection of greeting cards that feature bold colors, adorable illustrations, and witty copy for every occasion.  The combination of whimsical unicorns, sweater-wearing cats, and (of course) bacon with realistic, yet playful messages create an unexpected experience for all.  And guess what?  Each card has a QR code and URL on the back that directs you to a free justWink app for iPhone and Android phones.  Download the app and you can send digital cards via text, email or Facebook.  For more information and where to find justWink cards on shelf, visit or .

Gorgeous Outdoor Dinner Party

I’m declaring it officially official — it’s the summer of outdoor dinner parties.  And this outdoor soiree is no exception – especially set beneath a canopy of trees, in what looks like a vineyard no less.  I think it’s time I took dining al fresco up a notch and added hanging candles, flowers, and an invite list of my favorite people!  Are you swooning yet?
