Babe Brunch Uno

2012/06/30

20120630-132606.jpg

So it’s the summer of bebes! We’ve got babes due each month in our friend group from now thru Jan!!

Next up is Jess, since it’s everyone’s seconds we wanna keep thing simple but sweet-here’s my honey shower::

She wanted to eat brunch out so we decided on Table 6, cute joint, yummy food and nice atmosphere. To make it a lil more special though we brought in some simple decorations.

Burlap square for the center of the table
Dried wheat in a vintage milk jar
Hand-sewn personalized napkins
Handmade lavender honey lollipops
Honey stir sticks with a fresh mint sprig in each water glass
And honey favors.

Nothing fancy but just enough to add a personal handmade touch

Lovely <;;3

Sources:: burlap-by the yard from JoAnns, wheat-floral section of Michaels, vintage milk jar-borrowed from a friend, napkins-BBB, gold string for names-Michaels, lollipops with lavender from Savory Spice Shop, honey stirrers, mint-from my backyard, and bulk honey in jars-from World Market with a clean simple craft sticker.

Much love to Miss Kate M Carroll for the help :)

mothers day gift guide

2012/04/18

just in case ya know, you need some ideas ;) [hint hint, juanny d, hubby ‘o mine]

1. checkered tea spoons, $24, anthropologie. [because drinking tea is relaxing and let’s face it, all women, esp moms who take it where they can get it, need styled up accessories to enjoy it more. it’s the little things]

2. ikat butterfly cover-up, $48, echo design. [with summer coming up, and lotso pool play dates in the plans, mamas need to look cute while we’re chasing our toddlers around. plus pair w/ a cami and can be work as a tunic, bonus!]

3. monthly beauty treats, $10/month, birch box [who doesn’t love getting mail, ahem hello amazon prime memberships, so why not treat your special lady to a monthly subscription of beauty treats, can be given as an annual subscription or one time monthly]

4. honey-do list pad, $6.50, knockknock [because we all make the inevitable honey-do list, why not make it easier for her to create said list in an organized fashion]

5. color block tote, $75, neiman marcus [because every mama needs a big bag, period.]

Tiny Ball Chain Rings

2012/03/10

20120310-142701.jpg

So I saw these lovely yellow gold ball chain petite rings on FAB by Gabriela Artigas but of course they had sold out…so when I found them in her online store at $100 a pop (knowing of course I’d want 4, one for each finger) I knew I had to hold off and think about it.

But I couldn’t stop OBSESSING over them. I’d saved the photo + looked at it all the time!! And searched and searched, holding out hoping for a cheaper option but alas never found anything comparable.

So I figured (what I usually do)…I can make that ;)
So online purchased some small gold ball chain and connectors. This being the big difference (aside from the fact hers are yellow gold or rose gold, and mine are gold plated) hers are smoothly finished off and mine have a small connector which hides on the palm side of your finger. But at less than $1/each….I don’t care about the ghetto connector or even if the color wears and I need to make new ones in a month ;) ha!

Love love love them :)

getchornailsdid

2011/09/05

so i’m super into manicures lately, which is semi stupid because i’m still at a point where it’s very plausible for me to stick my fingers in rwd’s mouth numerous times a day…BUT i can’t help but 1. use up this last bit of summer for a lil fun like these:

and 2. get anxious for fall and winter parties where i can do it up like these:

…do you have a fav style to do your nails? or do you keep it simple?

a fun way i’ve been mixing it up lately, is just classic solid nails – but my ring finger on each hand (and matching for the toes) a different shade. it’s a much more subtle take to funking it out…

2010/09/27

so sarah just sent over these boots…and seriously!? umm..yes please.

these boots are so flipping adorable and truly i think could work for a lil buddy or a lil pretty lady. ha and the best part would be if they went all the way up to their chubby little knees!

and these are also pretty awesome ~ ha i can picture these lil elf shoes w/ a gnome hat :) ohhhh mannnn… hah.

and if i were having a summer babe i’d be all over these sandals a well
