Welcome to my little space on the web, thanks again for dropping by. I believe in crediting artists and designers properly here, so if you ever see anything that isn't linked correctly or to the right party, please email me and I'd be happy to fix it. On that note, all uncredited layouts and photography are created by yours truly, so please link back if you choose to share. Happy reading!
Somehow, I stumbled upon Jack Strutz's portfolio and fell in love with his California lifestyle-meets-portrait style. He's shot some beautiful people in some gorgeous settings. Be sure to check out more of his work here.
I have always loved bright colors in unexpected places, and these neon-edged business cards are no exception. It creates such a fun look and makes cards stand out from the stack. I especially love the two designs below.
Finally made it to Friday--hooray! I'll be working on a bit of blog cleanup and streamlining over the weekend and through the next week or so, and am also looking forward to relaxing. Perhaps some delicious lunches, TV series catch-up sessions and some reading too. I'm headed to Jersey to hang out with my favorite and have a low-key couple of days. Hope you enjoy this playlist in the meantime, and I'll see you back here next week!
This week's Wishlist Wednesday post features tribal designs and shades of blue. Transitional spring pieces, fun accessories and some touches of gold round out the mix. I'm especially obsessed with that brass hexagon ring and might have to get my hands on it. At just $38, it's a pretty good deal. I've been trying to keep an eye out for simple, classic jewelry to add to my collection lately. No more synthetic metals and materials! There are so many choices, I just have to narrow it down. Hoping to have some new pieces to share with you soon.
Happy Tuesday, everyone! I'm excited to share a new "Q+A With" post with you today featuring the talented Rebecca from A Daily Something. Rebecca is a NJ resident, and she spends her free time crafting, thrifting and photographing her work and amazing finds, among other things. She's contributed to some of my favorite blogs and has a great eye for stylish events and fun DIY projects. Her personal blog is filled with lovely photography, vintage buys and much more. Read on to find out more about Rebecca and be sure to visit her blog as well!
I was all about SPRING until this gloomy, windy, rainy weather came along and dashed all my 70-degree weather dreams. It doesn't look like it's going to be warmer until next week, which i'm bummed about, but at least that means I can hold onto fall and winter style a bit longer. Booties, transitional knits and dark denim is here to stay--at least until Friday. And I suppose April IS allabout showers...the look below is a typical NYC uniform for many in the colder months--all black, various textures and cozy, cozy, cozy. I'm loving how chic it looks.
This post contains two pieces of news. One: I am officially going to start using proper capitalization in an attempt to graduate from all lower-case writing. Woo! Also going to drop my signature on each post (you all know it's me by now!) so if you notice its disappearance, yes, it was on purpose.
More importantly, and second: a new feature! i've been wanting to do a travel series here on the blog for quite some time now, so i'm excited to introduce the new series "Perfect Postcard" to you. As a self-proclaimed hotel nerd and a travel enthusiast, I'm always eager to plan my next getaway. I hope that this series will inspire your travels and help you plan future trips as well. I'll be featuring a new hotel through this series each time, including ones I've stayed at, and ones I hope to check into one day.
Must-do: Check out the rooftop deck for a great place to catch some sun or delve into a good book!
Best amenities: Free wi-fi, complimentary breakfast & a mostly-empty in-room mini fridge (so you can stash your own goodies in there--no one likes overpriced hotel snacks and beverages that crowd the fridge)
Insider tip: if you walk away from Collins Ave., you'll hit a nice path that runs along the ocean. it's perfect for a stroll or a bike ride, and if you want to lay on the beach, the hotel will give you free towels to take with you.
Location: Very close to all of South Beach's nightlife, but on a quiet side street so you won't be kept up all night. Less than one block from the beach. A 10 minute walk to Lincoln Road Mall.
Rates: $$ (on a scale of $ to $$$$); expect to pay anywhere from $100-$350, depending on the time of year.
Book the hotel here directly for more flexibility in cancellation policy (also available through Tablet)
I would love to hear your thoughts on this first installment of "Perfect Postcard," and look forward to bringing you a new hotel in the next round! Here's to happy travels!
