Sending All My Love

9th February 2014

Valentines Day just around the corner (It’s friday, don’t forget!)and Since one of my new years resolutions is centered around celebrating (read the rest here) I have been on the hunt for darling Valentine cards & even making some of my own. I’m going to share my DIY v-day cards later this week and a sneak peek at the end of this post, but wanted to treat you with some of my favorite Valentines Cards today! 

 I’m obsessed with Papersource! I never make it out of there for under $50 – there’s too much good stuff! So when I started searching for Vday cards, Papersource was my first stop. I fell in love with their  Donuts, Spec-Tacular and Incredibly Awesome Cards… their just too stinking cute! I also found some goodies at Urban of all places!
Donuts About You: Single Card // Set of 10
Incredibly Awesome: Single Card // Set of 10

& some more Vday goodies to get you in the mood.
 I’m sharing my full DIY Valentine card Friday, of if we’re pen pals you might get it in your mailbox before then, but wanted to give you a little taste of what’s to come today! My cards star a surgery treat, that I unfortunately couldn’t really eat (I’m 95% gluten free, remember!). But they donuts didn’t go to waste! My bestie, Sheree and substitute photographer while my boyfriend’s got paid in pastries for stepping in to snap my pics!

mod about you

21st January 2013

with valentines day just around the corner, some of my next few posts will be v-day worthy to help you get ideas for what to wear on the most romantic day of the year! first up, fall modly in love with hot pink!

i’m beyond obsessed with my new pink dress, it makes me feel so girlie & pretty but in a modern way! today i took it for a sixties spin with a think belt, chunky heels and big round glasses.
looking thin i s a cinch! the thicker the belt, the slimmer your waist looks! just make sure it either starts or ends at your smallest point and try to use a contrasting color (like a black belt against white) to really trim your waist. 
 i purposely paired my open toe heels with black tights to keep it mod. some think doing so is a no-no, but i think it adds to the theme, and don’t mind mixing open toes with tights when it clearly makes a statement !
dress: kate spade // belt: kate spade  // shoes: vince camuto // black tight // sunnies: miu miu // bag: kate spade // rings: vintage // wire wrap  // kate spade // earrings: gum drops // arm party:  sequin // bcbg // kate spade idioms  // michael kors // kate spade charm bracelet (i’m obsessed) 

Happy Valentines Day!
