The Top 10

10. Shared my birthday wish list this week. I will be 29 next month and like to prepare for these things in advance. I may have to treat myself to a few of these items from J. Crew. I have 25% off + fall is coming.

9. My friend Liz of Sequins + Stripes is celebrating her birthday tomorrow! Stop by her blog to give her a little birthday love! Happy birthday, Liz! Hope you have a great one!

8. The blog has a new look and I am IN. LOVE. This new look also inspired a redesign of my website. A big thank you to the amazingly talented Jessica Durrant for letting me use her gorgeous art in my banner. I am her new no. 1 fan! Found her on Ashley's blog and contacted her to see if we could work together. She is sending some gorgeous prints my way and I am designing a new etsy banner + button for her. You have to check our her shop.

my banner + new buttons. what do you think?


more from her shop. GORGEOUS!

7. Had a great meeting at Whole Foods with Jess + Alaina this week. Looking forward to an upcoming project with them! Also looking forward to working with Alex of Things That Sparkle.

6. My canon speedlite 430EXII arrived yesterday! I haven't had much of a chance to play with it but hope it will help with those interior shoots! Excited to play. And I'm sorry, but it just looks fancy.


5. Sarah came over on Monday night and I have plans with Shari this weekend. I am actually redesigning both of their blogs soon! Can't wait to work with them! Love my blog girls ---> IRL friends. My other friends think it's insane that I've been working on my apartment for a year. But not my blog girls. They get me.

4. Pottery Barn has Moroccan poufs. Didn't see that one coming! Did you? The white on white is already sold out.

3. Shared pics of my mom's new rescue pup. Sorry to disappoint but Henry is not mine. He should be my #1 fan though. I saved him from a life of having people call him Willie. You're welcome, little Henry. Feel free to thank me with something off my wish list.

She settled on Henry because he is her 8th dog + his full name is {how embarrassing} Henry the 8th.

2. It is no secret that I love flowy tops, so I need to share my new favorite t-shirt with you. I bought this during the C&C sale and ordered 2 more, 30% off of the sale price.


1. Nicole of Frankie Hearts Fashion just announced the launch of Shop Frankie's! So excited for her. Anyone want to guess who she hired to design the logo? ;)
Have a wonderful weekend!
What is at the top of your list this week?
