Furbish Studio

Furbish Studio is one of my favorite online shops to stalk for fun home items and gifts. I always swing back and forth between being really happy with how our apartment looks and wanting to add more. I think the challenge with small spaces is you want it to feel decorated but not over crowded with stuff. Here's some of my favorite fun items:

Wedding Wednesday - Thank You Notes

So, where are we? We started off with the most important items, a fantastic wedding planner, a gorgeous venue, and a date. Then we moved on to choosing vendors that can only do one event per day (aka our photographer, videographer, ceremony officiant, hair and make-up team etc). It's been a seamless process since our planner works with so many great vendors, many of whom I've admired over the years in Blogs and magazines. We also finished up reserving our hotel blocks, and I created our wedding website through SquareSpace.  With all this key information in place, we finalized our guest lists and have ordered Save the Dates. While I can't reveal what they look like until we send them out in a few months, I can show you the thank you notes I ordered for A and I. We have been receiving so many wonderful engagement gifts, and I quickly realized we needed thank you cards with both our names on them pronto. Since we don't have our formal stationary yet, these monkeys have been doing just fine.

I love Iomoi products, they create the most fun and cheeky stationary, invitations, trays, and gifts. Take a look at some of their items below!

Blanket Coat - Yay or Nay?

What's your thought on blanket coats? I recently saw someone wearing this geometric Burberry beauty and loved how it looked on them. It was paired with skinny black jeans and ankle booties.
Or is this more your style? This is probably mine, and I actually need a new Burberry quilted coat to replace mine that I've had for years. I'm so damn attached to it, but I do think the red could be a fantastic new addition. 

To blanket or not to blanket?

Kale Yeah?

In some places, a blizzard warning might urge the purchase of water, milk, and bread. In New York, a kale shortage has occurred instead. Why am I not surprised?

Weekend Recap and a Blizzard?

Friday night A got back from a business trip to Austin. He and I headed straight to his friends birthday party at Rogue & Canon in SoHo.  I'm pretty much just a wine girl, but their grilled pineapple mojitos were delicious.
On Saturday,  I went to a birthday brunch for my friend KR at Rosemary's. I've blogged about Rosemary's many times because it is one of my favorite restaurants for dinner, but I'd actually never been their for brunch. I had the purgatory egg - an egg backed with lots of tomatoes and peppers. It was delicious, and we finished the meal with lemon ricotta bombilinos.  The best part? I've known these girls since preschool!

Yesterday, we stocked up on some groceries before this rumored blizzard.  Below is my current blizzard outfit for work.  Hopefully, it holds out so everyone can safely commute home tonight.

Wedding Wednesday

Let's talk wedding shoes! We're currently working on picking a videographer, getting invitation lists ready, and ........beginning the dress search! Since you won't hear a peep out of me about the dress until after the wedding, I thought I'd at least share some of my favorite wedding shoes. Any tips for saying yes to the dress?
