Three DIY Shibori Ideas + Friday Link Love

Three DIY Shibori Ideas + Friday Link Love

Written by | filed under Friday Link Love | 2 comments

Ever since Stephanie rocked out this DIY indigo dyed linens tutorial for us last summer, my obsession with all things shibori has been growing. And honestly, it was pretty solidified before then if that gives you a measure of my love. Currently I’m debating dying a pair of curtains for our dining room. I think they’d be colorful, bold and dramatic, but still playful. What do you think? In the meantime, I couldn’t resist sharing a few of my favorite …

Three DIY Ideas for Our House + Friday Link Love

After our big move back in March, we were full steam ahead in fixing up and decorating our new abode. Then April came and we got busy. May came along and we got even busier with travel, work and family obligations. Long story short? I don’t remember the last time I picked up a paintbrush or unpacked a box. This month I’m committing to making huge progress in making our little old house feel like a home so you can …

Happy Friday, friends! I’m cutting out a bit early today so I can spend some time prepping for a shoot I’m working on for early next week, but I couldn’t run off for the long weekend without popping in with a quick round-up of summer popsicle recipes that I have my eye on making over Memorial Day weekend. Last summer I was planning to buy a set of popsicle molds and it never happened, but I’m vowing to correct that …

Uuugh. Can we start today by talking about Grey’s Anatomy? Has anyone else been watching since the beginning, a whopping 10 years ago? I’m not going to spoil anything but last night’s season finale crushed me. And also made me feel really old. I can’t believe I’ve watched every single episode over the last decade! Also I was a junior in college when the show started. Enough said. But I digress. Let’s talk about cocktails, ok? Because this week heated …

I’m going to be on set at a shoot all day today so I’m calling it a wrap a little early this week! I couldn’t go MIA though without extending a huge massive bear hug of a thank you to each and everyone one of you. Your support this week in response to this post was so overwhelming. So many heartfelt emails, messages and comments. Seriously, you guys are all amazing. Also, somehow The Sweetest Occasion surpassed 100,000 Facebook fans …

Hey guys! I’m cutting out a bit early today as I have a lunch meeting and then we’re prepping for a weekend full of kiddos. B’s niece and nephews are staying with us this weekend and I’m helping host a bridal shower tomorrow for one of my best ladies so it’s going to be a whirlwind for sure.  A fun whirlwind, but definitely a whirlwind. Before I make a break for it though, I wanted to share three gorgeous copper …

Friday Link Love + 3 Lucky Charms Recipes

Written by | filed under Friday Link Love | 1 comment

Why has it never dawned on me that Lucky Charms are the perfect ingredient for any number of St. Patrick’s Day sweets? I’m seriously failing over here. Luckily for all of us, brilliant people with an affection for Lucky Charms do exist and, man, they’ve pulled out all the stops to lure in the kids with the sweet toot. (Uh, like me.) I’m going to be spending today tying up some loose ends still hanging around from our move, but …

As promised I’m going to be spending today packing and prepping for our move tomorrow, but I’m hooking you up with this week’s Friday Link Love before I go! My big goal for later in the weekend is to spend Sunday getting the kitchen completely settled so we can cook something yummy after starting the day slowly sipping copious amounts of coffee. And poached eggs for breakfast. Those are definitely in order. (I’m on a bit of a poached egg …

Guys. I’m telling you. It has been one of those weeks. I know you know the kind. The kind that drags on forever and involves all natures of bumps in the road and unanticipated hurdles that leave you feeling positively drained. So needless to say, I’m really really looking forward to the weekend. But not without our usual Friday Link Love! And do you know something that absolutely thrilled me from the top of my head to the tips of …

Sooo, is anyone else really excited to watch the Olympics opening ceremonies tonight? Sure, sure. Technically the festivities are already over in Russia time, but I live in New York time so I’m still living in the glory of the anticipation. The weather here is certainly beyond wintery (another 2+ feet and counting since last night) so it seems appropriate tonight to bunker down inside in front of the television and watch the athletes do their parade thing. Also, if …

Hi, guys! By the time you read this, B and I will be well on our way to New York for the weekend. And can I just tell you? It has been well over a decade since I’ve been to the city just for fun (without some professional obligation large or small involved) so this weekend is going to be so much fun. Five Napkin Burger, I’m looking at you, kid. That said, I wasn’t going to run off on you …
