This was a bit of a crazy week, but in the best sense of the word. Thursday night was the party for the new site (photos are online here but will also be in tomorrow’s post!) and my family came to town for it, which was so nice. I’m actually a little bit sick (probably a little run down.) I woke up on Wednesday morning with a sore throat and by Friday it was a full blown cold. The worst. I’m hoping to kick it with lots of sleep, ginger fireballs…
The latest in:
My friend Felicia (from This That Beauty) has the most beautiful headband. It looks like jewelry. I think it’s from Jennifer Behr. Seeing her out and about at one of many holiday parties inspired me… and made me think. You can toss your hair in a messy bun and still look amazing with a headband like that. So, I set out to make my own. And as luck would have it, it was rather easy…
Stripe Finds // Little discoveries you'll love
Up until more recently, I used a dingy old Burberry garment bag to haul around my dresses or tunics when traveling. With wedding season approaching this Spring, this one (from Hudson & Bleecker) made for an excellent upgrade. So much more chic. Bonus points for the emerald green lining!
Sweethaus is worth the trip to Brooklyn. I love the decor + branding (and that it’s girly without being saccharine sweet.) Stop by and enjoy the salted caramel cupcake and a cappuccino. Also, while I haven’t tried it… I hear the “Everything Cupcake” actually is everything.
Leaving Time, by Jodi Picoult, is the best book I’ve read it in ages. I read it while I was on vacation and finished it within 36 hours. I just couldn’t put it down. It was beautifully written (as with all of Picoult’s books) but I learned a tremendous amount about elephants and was shaken by the ending. Go buy this one now!
