Travel: Carry On Essentials

By - No comments:

I just started pulling together my carry on bag for our trip. Here is a round up of the things I never travel without....
1. Reading material. This trip I will be taking An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin. Several people have recommended it and I can't wait to dive in. I'm sure I will pick up a few magazines at the airport as well.
2. Sunglasses. Classic Ray Ban Wayfarers are comfortable, always in style, and can handle crashing around in my purse without a case.
3. Scarf. I get really cold on airplanes so I always bring a scarf that doubles as a blanket. Love Quotes is my favorite brand. They aren't super expensive and they come in tons of fun colors. I also always pack a pair of Smart Wool socks to put on once I'm seated.
4. iPad. My sweet husband came home on Friday and surprised me with this new toy. I'm obsessed. Perfect to load up some movies or listen to some tunes while you are on the go.
5. Rodin Lip Balm. This is one of the best out there. Moisturizing and shiny without being sticky.
6. Tote. Clare Vivier Tropezienne leather bag. This is a classic bag that you will have forever.
7. Urbanears Medis Headphones. Functional and cute.
8. Nikon Coolpix. I like this one because it is small but takes great photos. The pink is also easier to find in the bottom of my purse than plain black.
What do you guys consider travel carry on essentials? I would love suggestions to add to my list!

Lovely Letterpress

I'm in love with my gorgeous new business cards designed by the very talented Ashley Steen of Orchard11. The thick white card stock is letterpressed with Pantone 329...a teal color, of course! You should check out Dee and Lala who did the letterpressing for us. Their website is filled with drool worthy stationary.

Today is the big day! The hubby and I are packing up the car and heading about an hour South. Moving is always an overwhelming endeavor, but it is also a bit exciting. I look forward to my little families new adventures. Have a great weekend! x

So Cute!

I have been pulling tons of nursery inspiration images in preparation for designing one of my own. I don't know if it is a girl or boy yet, so I have been collecting everything. One of my favorite girl's rooms that I have come across is one designed by Caitlin Wilson for her daughter Olivia. I love the lavender and lime palette, and I'm obsessed with the trim on the lamp shade and bedskirt. Oh, and she has the Rikshaw bedding and elephant pillow that I adore. So cute!

Hi there! I know I have been MIA this week, but I have been working very hard on some projects that I hope to share with you all soon. In the meantime, I am dying to get my hands on Dwell's new design book, Undecorate. It came out this past week and it looks brilliant. A must for a design book junkie like myself. Here are a few sneak peek images that they posted *here* on their blog...

Shop: Splurge vs Steal Baby Bedding

By - No comments:

I have always loved John Robshaw's Noah's Ark crib bedding. It is so charming with a beautiful hand made quality to it. Unfortunately, it's $525 for the set. I was in Target today and saw the Dwell Studio for Target line. They have a design called Menagerie that is equally adorable and a bit more modern looking. I love the stylized animals with the lime piping and contrasting ticking stripe. It is 100% cotton and you can get the three piece set for $75!
