A Few of My Favorite Things (Birthday Style)

My birthday was a few days ago, and I was quite spoiled by my loving husband and family. If you follow me on Instagram you likely saw some pics from my fun-filled “birthday week”. Here’s a round-up!

Birthday Collage1 & 2) the week started off with a mani-pedi date with a friend, so I’ve been sporting Essie Mademoiselle on my fingers & Turquoise & Caicos on my toes. 3) Pretty tulips from the grocery store bloomed all week in our living room. 4) More tulips – a lovely flower bed outside a hotel in NYC spotted while my BFF & I walked the streets on a fun-filled evening. 5) Drinks, dinner, a show & time with my bestie. 6) Gorgeous flowers delivered on my birthday from my amazing husband! 7) New favorite shoes (Reva by Tory Burch). 8) Happiness. 9) Seriously spoiled – a new bag for toting my laptop & work essentials (Longchamp Le Pliage), a new springy cellphone case (Botanical Rose iPhone Case from Rifle Paper Co)., and a basket for my bike (Nantucket Bike Basket Company).

I love having a Spring birthday – it is such a happy & optimistic time! Now if the weather would just get it together, I would have zero complaints!

Have a great day everyone! Xo!


Etsy Love

I spend many hours a week perusing & admiring the amazing creations that people-much-cleverer-than-I sell on Etsy. So I thought I would share some of my current favorites!

1) State Love by Poppy & Pinecone ~ I live in New Jersey these days, but I’m a Pennsylvania girl through & through. I’d love to hang this colorful Pennsylvania Love print in my bedroom as an homage to my old stomping grounds.

2) Two Lovers Custom Sterling Silver Bracelet from Lala Design Studio ~ I love the romantic simplicity of two initials connected with a heart in this pretty little bracelet.

3) Fabric Wallet from Tilly Whistle ~ This shop offers some incredibly adorable, hand made, fabric baby booties. Until I am in the market for baby things, I’d like this lovely, mustard yellow, botanic print wallet.

4) A Heartfelt Mother’s Day Card from Craft Colorfully ~ This eco-friendly card would surely make your mother laugh. Well, I think it would make my mother laugh. Because she knows it’s true. 🙂

5) A Colorful Collar for my Favorite Pup from Biscuit & Gravy ~ I love accessorizing our Emma bear with a variety of fun collars and leashes. This multicolor collar would be perfect for her summer wardrobe! 🙂

6) Chevron Case for iPhone ~ A new look for my iPhone? Yes please. I’m obsessed with the pretty patterns and colors by Christine Marie B!


Happy Etsy-browsing, and have a great day!
