Baby, it's WARM outside!

Go figure! It's late February and I'm in a skirt and short sleeves today instead of the ol' long-johns and Uggs combo.

This weekend Tristan & I went to the Poconos for an overnight and stayed at my future bro-in-law's house. Was really nice to get outta the city for a bit and get a chance to see some winter!
How was your President's Day?

Also Taylor turned 29 this past weekend!!!! Happy birthday Sloanie!!!

Boho Babe

I love boho everything. I really do. Like, really. I also love when we're on the cusp of spring, because it seems boho things are EVERYWHERE! I've put together some of my favorites spotted this week!

2 years!


Hard to believe that over 2 years ago, I accompanied my pals Nick & Melissa to be audience members on the Wendy Williams show and had my 15 minutes of fame while describing my dating woes on national television. TODAY marks 2 years of when Tristan and I started dating! Our first date was drinks (I had a strong no dinner on first date rule I was living by) at a neighborhood bar after being courted on twitter, and the rest is history. I don't remember every detail of our first date, but I do remember coming home and telling Melissa, "well, i'm going to marry that one!"
In about 8 months from now we'll be husband and wife, and based on how fast the time has passed it'll be here before we know it.
Happy Anniversary, Tristan! #iloveyou

Happy Valentine's Day!

I may not be the most over-the-top-romantic buuuuut, i AM a sucker for all things pink & hearts, therefore I really love Valentine's Day. Hope you all have a great day, especially my valentine!!

Here's a nice surprise I woke up to this morning...I'm obsessed with it, I've been eyeing this bag for a few months! Thank you, Tristan :-)
Can't wait to give Tristan his present later- I think he's going to love it. It's a combined gift, because our anniversary (2 years!!!) happens to be Thursday! We're both looking forward to our anniversary changing to October 6 after the wedding, this way we can spread out the celebrations.

sweet little project

Valentine's Day is tomorrow! Can you believe it? It feels like juuuuuust yesterday was last Valentine's Day…
Anywhooo, I recently was asked to make a graphic design inspired will you marry me collage for someone. He hasn't actually proposed yet, but I don't know him or the fiance-to-be so I think it's safe for me to post this in honor of L-O-V-E day. This is going to be printed on a 48" square canvas & I'm very excited to hear how the proposal goes.

a lovely little photoshoot


Tristan & I happen to be very lucky on the friend front, as a lot of the people very close to us are amazingly talented. One of which is Nikki Baxendale, who took these photos for us so we could make our save the dates. Thanks Nikki, for capturing these!
I'm wearing a dress designed & made by my friend Elsie from the Red Velvet Shop dress with a shirt from Urban Outfitters over, along with my favorite Frye Boots (thanks, mom!)
I believe every Sunday should be spent jumping with large quantities of balloons. Don't you?
