Hurricane Sandy

As we head into the weekend I thought it'd be good to keep this short and sweet. I lived in NYC on two separate occasions and am heading there next weekend for a wedding so I have a major sweet spot for the Big Apple and the East Coast. If you would like to donate to the relief effort for Hurricane Sandy please visit the American Red Cross' website here. Hope all of you and your loved ones were kept safe during the storms! XOXO

Rainy Day Obsessions

Our Save the Dates! They are gold letter-pressed tied with pink twine (for "tying the knot") and the stamps have a photo of the proposal. The envelopes have the same gold liners as my stationery and then were addressed in gold calligraphy.

Barnes and Noble stop: magazines and a new book (loved her New York Times best selling book, The Forgotten Garden, and I am currently reading her first book, The House at Riverton).

The bridal magazines are a little out of control...

Made some Cookie Dough Balls, recipe here.

OPI's You Don't Know Jacques with 2 coats of Mad As A Hatter on top.

Anna Weatherly Salad/Dessert plate in "Spring in Budapest" (it's all hand painted and looks like a mini work of art!) a gift from my sis!

Resort Lust List

"Rain, Rain, go away, come again some other day...." It's raining hardcore right now in LA and I'm longing for sunshine and beach days! I've been looking at resort pieces online to curb the winter blues and these are a few of my favs so far:

Creed "Sublime Vanille" Perfume (outrageous price but it smells divine!)

My wedding flowers: peonies!

I've been obsessed with these Aldo shoes ever since I saw them in a press showroom a few weeks ago. When I finally saw them in the Aldo store on Wednesday, I snatched a pair up! Perfect holiday shoes that work with tights or ankle socks!

Picked up some makeup necessities at Sephora.

From left to right: Stila Eyeshadows in Wheat, Kitten and Grace. Stila Smudge Stick Liner in Lionfish.

Dropped off some goodies for my fiance for his 25th birthday (he unfortunately had to work late- celebrating tonight)... Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, Coconut and Red Velvet cupcakes!

Did some damage at the newsstand. Looking for some fabulous fashion editorials to redo my inspiration board!
