A weekend project

The other day a close friend mentioned that she had plans to do a DIY lampshade for her home. I’m not the slightest bit surprised that it turned out PERFECT and looks amazing with her other decor. Naturally, seeing her success makes me want to brush off  my craft supplies and give a project a try… is that crazy? This hand painted pillow DIY is adorable and seems easy enough to not totally botch!;)If you’re looking for a little weekend crafting, would you dare attempt a new, custom throw pillow?!

Organic Wedding Inspiration

One of our favorite wedding trends as of late, is incorporating elements from nature to create a lush, romanic ambience. We get to hear about all of the fun details that are in planning phase for our clients, but it’s crucial for us to make sure that the invitations we’re designing accurately set the tone for the wedding. Having a loose color palette and a near whimsical feel, playing with textures and sparing no effort for elegance, we’re giddy at the endless possibilities of this organic look. Here’s what we’re envisioning…

Monday motivation

Monday, Monday… we’re back at it again, ready to carpe diem! Are you? I think we can all agree that the start of the week can be rough, but as we’ve been scouring the latest Fall trends from Fashion Week, we thought that one trend in particular would be the perfect touch to add some extra polish & spur on motivation to the start this week right…

Are you familiar with the tried & true “dressed well, test well” motto from college? You better believe that when you put in that extra little bit of effort to look put together, you FEEL put together and that can very well flow into your actions & performance. Lipstick is a quick fix and definitely adds some sass.;)Whether it’s prepping for a huge exam, presentation at work or just a crazy busy week, we’re ready to sport one of the beautiful new bright berry, soft peach or bronzed brown shades of Fall. Check out Harper ‘s Bazaar’s top picks!

PS- Since we’re loving on lipstick, I couldn’t resist including Lipstick Dots, one of my favorite paintings from Cocoa & Hearts - shown on the right! Isn’t it adorable?!

Happy Hour: Strawberry Thyme Lillet

We’re in this odd seasonal transitional time of year and the ups and downs of the weather can be quite a roller coaster in New England. Before we completely embrace the approach of fall, there are just a couple more warm- weather cocktail recipes that we’ve been dying to try. This Strawberry Thyme Lillet we spotted over on What’s Gabby Cooking sounds refreshing on a warm, sunny Friday like today!

What kind of fun things do you have planned this weekend?!
