It’s such a bright & cheerful addition to any casual ensemble, don’t you think? Oh and it’s ON SALE!!!!

The long awaited April/ May 2014 issue is OUT! It’s not that the masses have been pacing in excitement for it’s release, but at Paper Moss, we sure have. We caught wind awhile back, that one of our couples’ weddings was going to be featured on these pretty pages… and needless to say, WE’RE ECSTATIC!

Yep, this is the cover and here is a peek of Sabrina & Greg’s beautiful wedding feature, including a shot of their menu we designed at the bottom!!

Thanks for sharing in our excitement! Happy Wedding Wednesday, lovelies!

A walk in the garden

If you’ve ever slipped your feet into a pair of Jeffrey Campbell flats, you know they’re super comfy and there’s a good chance they’re friggin adorable. We started swooning over the floral embellishment & beadwork on this sweet pair of white leather ballet flats and feeling extra springy with all the flowers around us blooming is making us love them EVEN MORE!

Our opinion aside, what do you think- would you ever wear floral flats?!

Having hope

With the start of an insanely busy week, we wanted to share some inspiration that means the world to us. Everyone needs to feel hope- it gives us energy, motivation and purpose. Hope makes the tough times bearable and enhances even the best times. Yes, hope anchors the soul.

A big pill to swallow, but we love us some words of truth!! We’re wishing you a week full of hope, especially as Easter is right around the corner…;)

Blackberry Sage Martini

It’s FRIDAY! We wanted to kick off the weekend with a little “happy hour” inspiration and share a recipe that we tried in the Paper Moss office last Friday. I’m not big on sweet cocktails but this had the perfect balance of flavorful black berries and sophisticated sage!

You’ll need:

- fresh blackberries

- sage simple syrup {a super easy recipe is found here}

- cointreau or triple sec

- vodka

- ice

- a muddler, cocktail shaker & strainer

Muddle about 8 blackberries in a cocktail shaker. Next, add 1.5 oz of vodka, .5 oz of cointreau and .5 oz of the sage simple syrup. You can add more simple syrup to taste, but as previously mentioned, we wanted to keep this smooth & not overly sweet. Add ice & shake all ingredients together! Pour into your drinking vessel of choice, garnish {if you so desire} and ENJOY!!!

 Happy sipping, friends! And HAPPY FRIDAY!
