A Week of Lovelies

a sparkly wonder that has completely stolen my heart

a whimsical balloon wedding that dreams are made of, originally spotted here 

the most romantic veil I ever did see

art of the embroidery kind

i love, LOVE this centerpiece

thinking I need an Emerson corsage to spruce up my wardrobe

i'm on the hunt for slippers and these are at the top of my list

my kind of pumpkins

from the yellow to the leopard to the big chandelier necklace, I'm on board

these alchemy bookends are the cat's meow

have a wonderful, candy-filled weekend

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

so after lots of mulling over the absolute perfect gift to celebrate one year as husband and wife, I finally decided on a book for my one and only. I headed over to blurb and made a list of 100 things that I absolutely adore and just can't get enough of when it comes to my husband and luckily I had a bejillion gorgeous pictures from this lady to illustrate my point. A certain someone may have just teared up when he saw the final product. score one for my debut novel. 

*if you're wondering what in the heck is up with the term love bucket, let me fill you in. we really aren't all that mushy and sappy - it actually started as a joke. I kid you not my bestie use to called her cat drooly love buckets and well it just kind of stuck. 

All that glitters...is a birthday fete

forget wedding redo, I want a birthday redo. How perfectly perfect is Cassandra's birthday bash? gold, glitter and champie...what more does a girl need?

Pop it like it's hot

is it weird that I completely and totally want to live in the new Kate Spade pop-up shop in London? I would be perfectly content rolling out a sleeping bag on those beautifully painted stairs. Please, pretty please Kate? I promise not to make a peep

It's just around the corner...

the one year anniversary of becoming a Mrs.to my Mr. is within reach and per usual, I haven't finished my gift yet. This should in no way reflect on how much I love my husband, only how little time I have for such things as etsy perusing or love letter writing.  And since the first anniversary is the year for all things paper, a love letter would be in keeping with tradition but alas I am a girl who likes to break the rules. In fact i revel in it so here's a little sampling of some of my favorites and *GASP* they aren't all paper related but they are definitely all awesome.

Hot Toddy Time

This past week my favorite people in the whole world, a.k.a. the Fam, came to visit and we traipsed all over Boston eating and drinking and taking in the sites. This is such a GORGEOUS time to be in New England. I just can't seem to get enough of the pretty leaves, bundling up in all of my coats and scarves that I never ever got to wear in San Diego, eating (or slurping) TONS of soup... but my absolute favorite part has got to be the Hot Toddies. Hello yummy goodness! How did I not know about this delightful treat before? It is so warm and cozy and is perfect, perfect for those crisp Fall evenings.
We put a little twist on the traditional Hot Toddy and incorporated Apple Cider. You really can't go wrong with these puppies:

Hot Apple Toddy
2oz whiskey (my husband swears by Jameson)
1 tsp sugar
hot apple cider
cinnamon stick, cloves, apple slice for garnish

1. Coat the bottom of an Irish coffee glass with honey
2. Add whiskey
3. Fill with hot apple cider and stir well
4. Garnish with cinnamon stick, cloves and apple slice
5. sip and repeat to your little heart's content

Flowers to Fashion

not only are the flowers by Poppies and Posies drop dead but the outfit that was inspired by this floral masterpiece is equally fantastic. I'll take the whole shebang please.

A Wedding that Dreams Are Made Of

If I could pick only one wedding to stare at for the rest of my life, it would without a doubt be this very wedding. Every single little thing about it, even the bug spray...
is perfectly designed and beautifully executed. Bravo Team Coolest Wedding Ever and kudos to Max Wanger for all of the gorgeous photography.

Overcast with a chance of rain

moody grey walls and a fabulous chandelier are all a girl really needs in life. A hot pink vase never hurts either.
