Little Love Notes

A few little love notes to the things I loved most this week, including book shelf styling, an at-home workout, and big crumb coffee cake. Click through for the details. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

Happy Friday/almost-weekend! It’s been a super productive week and I’m hoping to keep the momentum going. I have three fun styled shoots coming up in the next few weeks – keep an eye out on insta stories to catch a few behind-the-scenes glimpses – so I’m hoping to really dive into the planning this weekend. The new site design is also coming together and I think you’re going to love it. Scarlett is eagerly awaiting summer camp so she can wear her new summer shoes (glitter jellies that we bought a few weeks back) and baby number two is growing at rapid pace in my belly. Thankfully, we’ve entered the “good stretch” of pregnancy, where I finally feel like myself again. Mostly. I also know that in a few months time, I’ll be drowning in dirty diapers and exhaustion, so I’m a busy bee until then trying to get everything done. I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes …

Dear pep talks, how to feel confident in under 10 minutes.

Dear DIY’s to try, this handmade Ikea Signe Rug Bag is awesome.

Dear get in my closet, this bow-backed striped dress is under $100 and BEAUTIFUL. Swoon.

Dear homebody fitness fix, a quick 7-move at-home workout.

Dear closet clean-out, Amazon wants to help you declutter (and give back.)

Dear Rom Com’s, Reese Witherspoon has a new one and you’re going to love it.

Dear bringing up baby, 10 things they forget to mention about newborns.

Happy Friday/weekend! It’s a low-key one for us; mostly I’ll be cleaning house, playing with my brand new Mother’s Day present (it came a few days early!), and baking all of the things with my mini-me. Hubby is working nights all weekend-long – the worst – whomp whomp. I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes …

Dear hubby is on nights again, 27 totally underrated Rom-Coms you can watch on Netflix right now.

A few little love notes to the things I loved most this week, including this Cinco de Mayo fiesta forever styling. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone. We’re soaking up every minute of the last few days of our vacation and enjoying all of the down time. Yesterday we went to the beach for a bit – though it was too cold to stay long, had Red’s Eats famous lobster rolls, and then made our way to the outlets and stocked up on work clothes for Mike, my favorite J.Crew flats in every color, and plenty of summer wear for Scarlett. I’m having way too much fun buying her all of the cute flamingo and watermelon prints for summer camp; plus, we found the cutest jellies for toddlers and kids. Jellies! And she’s obsessed. A girl after my own heart.

Over the weekend we’ll make our way back down to North Carolina and I’ll be back in blog and party-planning mode. Scarlett’s birthday is right around the corner. Full speed ahead!

I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes …

Dear caffeine buzz, can’t wake up without coffee? You can blame genetics.

Dear books on my list, have you read The Keeper of Lost Things? It sounds sad and beautiful and I’m totally intrigued. (Maybe a contender for an upcoming #GlitterBookClub?)

Dear wedding history, the tradition of matching bridesmaid dresses dates all the way back to ancient Rome.

Dear sappy movie lovers, this quiz wants to guess your favorite rom com. (I got The Wedding Planner.)

Dear Tiffany & Co., kudos on such a stunning campaign with Lady Gaga. Have you seen it?

Dear Spring cleaning, a brilliant and simple way to organize your closet for good.

Dear real world, all of the skills they don’t teach you in college, but probably should.

Dear weekend baking, strawberry poke cake with berries and cream.

Little Love Notes: our New York and Main Vacation by lifestyle blogger Lexi of Glitter, Inc.

We’re officially on VACATION! We left yesterday on our road trip and today we’re in NYC for a long weekend to visit family and get a little blog work in. (I promise to share some of the fun behind-the-scenes of where we’re headed and who we’re meeting up with over the next few days!) There really is something magical about this city, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I think I just love the chaos, the excitement, and all the great shopping and food, of course. After a few-day trip in New York, we’re driving the rest of the way to my parents’ house in Maine on the coast and I cannot wait to soak up all of that salty ocean air. One of the things I miss most about Miami these days is that ocean feel. Looking forward to playing in the sand, squeezing in a little down time, and stuffing our faces with lobster rolls. Stay tuned!

I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes …

Dear lazy girls’ beauty regimen, are face wipes as effective as washing your face? (Yep. And here’s what to look for.)

Dear Sofia Coppola fans, have you seen the eerie first trailer for her remake of Clint Eastwood’s 1971 ‘The Beguiled’? SO looking forward to it.

Dear growing old, the two happiest years of your life, according to science.

Dear what’s for dinner, 8 weeknight power sauces to make and keep in your refrigerator.

Dear reading for the soul, how to read a whole damn book every week.

Dear design dreaming, just LOOK at this farmhouse-style back porch.

Dear Spring must-haves, this swingy Free People tunic dress is the kind of piece you’ll wear all Spring and Summer long (and it’s under $50!)

Dear weekend baking, dark chocolate chunk, pistachio, and sea salt cookies.

A few little love notes to the things I loved most this week by lifestyle blogger Lexi of Glitter, Inc.

Happy weekend! Hubby is out of town for a conference but my baby brother, all 6-foot-5 of him, is coming to town and Scarlett is beside herself with excitement. I have a feeling he’ll be finding a way to fold himself into her tiny “princess castle” (a.k.a., teepee) because she is ready to PLAY. We also have a fun playdate Saturday, and I have lots of packing to do, because at the end of next week, we leave for VACATION! More details to come, but feel free to send me your NYC suggestions. (We’re headed there first for a few days, before we drive up to Maine, so that I can squeeze a little work in.)

I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? What are your Little Love Notes? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes …

Dear email truths, let’s all stop apologizing for the delayed response in our emails. “Adulthood is emailing ‘sorry for the delayed response!’ back and forth until one of you dies.”

Dear what’s for dinner, one pot mushroom and swiss chard pasta (covered in parmesan, of course.)

Dear fashion risks, you have to see these unreal embellished fishnet tights.

Dear way back when, remember Scarlett’s very first birthday party? It’s time to start planning her THIRD birthday!

Dear DIYs to try, the cutest DIY patio umbrella.

Dear beauty tricks, this tip for applying lipstick is simple and will give you the perfect “cupid’s bow.”

Dear home must-haves, the prettiest floral jewelry plates (that I really just want to use as dessert plates.)

Dear weekend bakingjam butter cookies. OMG.

A few little love notes to the things I loved most this week, plus Easter celebrations and my favorite 3-tier rustic stand. Click through for the details. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

Happy Easter and Passover weekend! We’re running errands all day today (Friday) to play catch-up with hubby since he has today and tomorrow off after a week of nights at the hospital and a work trip next week. Tonight, I’m making matzoh ball soup and we’re relaxing. Saturday I’m hoping to take the family to the farmer’s market and maybe for strawberry picking if the weather is nice. Sunday, we’re headed to our friends’ house for their Easter celebration. Scarlett is beyond excited about finding eggs and putting them in her basket.

I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

Dear fellow party-throwers, order my favorite 3-tier rustic tray while you can. It’s one of my favorite serving pieces for parties, but it’s constantly going out of stock. (Here it is full of cupcakes at Scarlett’s first birthday party.)
