The holidays...

Hello! I'm back... it was a busy week last week. I was hard at work finishing up the final touches for E's Dessert Party {which took place on Sunday and I can't wait to share the photos}. I'm definitely ready for my 4 day weekend now! What does everyone have planned? We'll be doing our normal dinner at my parents house and then heading out to the lake for a little relaxing, just what I (we) need:)
Now, it's not going to be "lake" weather, so there will be no swimming, boating, etc... but it's never bad to get out of the house and out of your day to day routine, right? Our days will mostly be spent walking our dogs, riding the cruiser bikes around, sipping some drinks by the water, oh, and of course eating the Thanksgiving left overs.

Moving on quickly from Thanksgiving... only a few weeks left until Christmas! My favorite holiday.... when I came across this photo from Kate Spade, it made me even more excited for the cold weather. Adorable socks with sparkly heels? CUTE!
And I couldn't just share one of my favorite pictures of sparkly things...

1... lovely little kate spade striped socks
2... fabulous sparkly flowers for holiday decor from lucky girl goods
3... i HEART this photo by disneychick found on flickr
4... glam necklace perfect for a holiday cocktail party by doloris petunia
5... a rustic wintery garland by funkyshique
Hope you all have a great weekend!

... marketa new york ...

On my quest to find the best pencil case out there, I came across Marketa New York, the most lovely little accessory shop on Etsy. I'm loving the muted colors with a sheen. It's adds a touch of class to a basic linen bag. Marketa is offering a buy two get one free deal... how great is that? Buy 2 as stocking stuffers for your girlfriend, sister, or mom, and get one free for yourself! Now the only hard part is picking a color...

Happy shopping...

Vintage Parisian Inspired Shoot

I'm not big on sharing anyting wedding-ish... I definitely do check out the wedding blogs though as they provide so much inspiration for any type of event or party. I just could not resist today though. These pictures from Allison and Jason's engagement session by Ashley Brockinton are amazing! I fell in love with the pop of color they incorporated with the balloons. Plus this totally reminds me of walking down the streets of Paris, how could you not love that...

Where can I get one of those fabulous hats she is wearing?

Inspiration to work::

I know that there are a lot of lovely decorators and planners out there in this blogging community. With all of the supplies that we must carry around daily... samples, planners, sketchbooks... along with all of our daily essentials (massive wallets, massive makeup cases, phones, gum, blah blah), we need a fabulous tote for all of that right? Well luckily I was checking out i suwannee today. She led me to my new favorite online shopping spot, iomoi. They have customizable bags with the most amazing designs to choose from! I am loving these...

While your over there, pick up one... okay 5 (they're on sale!!!) of these stylish notebooks. How could you not impress your clients whipping out one of these ladies?

Happy monday, make it a great week!

ps:: these are also great gifts for the upcoming holiday season (wink wink... anyone who needs an idea for me:)

My New Sock Obsession...

I'm in love... with socks. I read a post over at old soul, new heart yesterday about knee socks and was inspired to do a little online shopping of my own. I had completely forgotten how chic, and adorable, and fabulous, and awesome socks are paired with heels and boots. Knee or ankle... pushed down, pulled up... I don't care. Love it. Check out my new faves which are now on my shopping list::
