Mini Vacay . . .

Heading to Tampa for a good friends wedding and some much needed R & R! After being sick for almost two weeks, this vacation can’t come soon enough.  When I get back, it’s time to finish up my website and get it up and running!!! (Why do designers always design for themselves last??) I’ll be back to the blogging world next week!

Decisions, decisions.

Good morning! Happy Monday! This morning I’m posting about a big decision I’m about to make this week. I’m about to purchase a new car and for the life of me, I can’t make a decision. Here are my choices:

2010 VW Jetta

jetta

2010 Honda Civic

civic

Both are white with tan leather interior, have the same warranty and are fairly the same price. Thoughts anyone?

Pretty Things: Amy Butler Rugs

If you aren’t familiar with Amy Butler, you have to check out her website. She makes everything; rugs, bedding, stationary, tableware and so much more! Everything is amazing, but I think her rugs might be my favorite!

Piccadilly Posh Photography

Being a designer, one of my favorite things to do is use my skills to help out my friends.  Whether it’s creating an identity for their small business, designing wedding invitations or just helping build their website – it’s just something I love to do.  I recently had a chance to work with Molly from Piccadilly Posh Photography –  I  can’t tell you how amazing and talented she is. Here are a few of my favorite recent photographs. You can also check out her websites here:  Piccadilly Posh.

Under the Weather

I hate being sick, ugh.  Especially when the summer days are almost out of sight. Oh well. Sooo, I was thinking that today might be a nice day to post a little more about me.  Here goes:

Five things I can’t live without in my closet:
Scarves
Ugg Boots in the winter
Flip flops in the summer
Skinny Jeans
Summer Dresses

Three things I do before hitting the sack:
Watch a little tube
Wash my face
Kiss my lovely boyfriend goodnight

What tempts me?
Anthropologie
Good food.

Five things in my purse:
iPhone
Lip Gloss
Random Business Cards
Lotion
Glasses

Two gadgets I must have:
iPhone
Macbook Pro

What I had to drink today:
Tea (substitution for coffee because I’ m sick)

How many hours I usually sleep:
Honestly, I love to sleep. I try to go to bed around 10, but usually it’s closer to midnight. My alarm goes off around 6ish every morning.

Somethings on my Fall radar:
Go on a nice hike.
Visit the beach one more time before it gets too cold.
Visit a new place.
Make lots of Fall comfort food.

New Blog: Cravings

I can’t express to you how much I love food, besides design of course. One of my favorite parts of traveling to new places is reasearching all the wondeful restaurants that I can visit. Even if it’s new neightborhoods around my house, dining at a new restaurant is just so exciting to me!

Last night I was catching up the two latest issues of Print Magazine, where I noticed blog that caught my eye, Cravings. This blog is the work of two sisters who review New York City food & wine. But that’s not all, once I checked out the blog myself, I was pleased to see that they had other destinations as well, including Washington, DC! Not only are there reviews, but the sisters also break down the blog into different “cravings”; tasting, sipping, happenings, baking fridays and much more. You have to check it out yourself.
