BirchBox Referral Link

hey people!

i've been talking with my friends and it seems quite a few people still don't know about birchbox! if you don't know what it is, it's honestly one of the best ideas. You sign up for a membership via an invitation and then for $10/month, you receive some of newest and greatest beauty, grooming and lifestyle products. I've received full size samples of nail polishes, mascaras, etc.

If you need a special invitation, use this link here:

You can thank me later!

Hey people. So I just had a marvelous idea. Wanna know what it is?

I'm moving in a couple of weeks, and I'd love to get rid of some of my inventory before I do.

Now is a great time to buy that piece you've been eyeing! If you buy between now and next Friday (6/29), you'll get 10% off the purchase price with the coupon code that only you have - MOVING10.  Check my etsy shop for latest additions.

Take advantage, lovies, and wish me luck on my move!

Happy Mother's Day - a few days late

Hi ladies - hope you all enjoyed Mother's Day and were able to either spend time with your mother or your babies or BOTH!

Personally, I had a great weekend - shopping, pedicure and relaxation.

Wanted to let you know that the most popular gift at this time is the gold filled keepsake necklace. This one was HOT for Mother's Day! There's still time to order, so get yours!

It's been an absolutely gorgeous weekend here in Philly - hope you've had a chance to enjoy yours.

Gold Filled Double Deckers

One of my friends just had her second baby and to celebrate his birth, we did a double decker initial keepsake necklace! What do you think?

I'm Sorry.

Hi boys and girls! Momma's back for a little spell.

I've been traveling a lot with work and because that can get a little loco, I usually disappear and shut down my Etsy shop. I'm wrapping up my last trip for the spring (Vegas in two weeks!) and I'm hoping I can commit a smidge more time to my blog. In the meantime, I want to share with you a photo from my friend, Jamie. It makes me laugh every time I see it.

"I'm sorry I love you" or "I'm sorry, I love you"? Oh, the difference a comma makes!

Coming Up for Air

Yeah, I've got nothing. Nothing exciting, at least.

I've been bland and busy -- all at the same time. Remarkable, eh? Been busy trying to wrap up Heartsy orders I received through Etsy and other orders I've received outside of my Etsy shop.

Almost. There.

If you're waiting for an order to arrive, hold tight! It's on its way!

Feasty Friday

My coworkers surprised me this morning with a breakfast buffet bagel spread for my birthday. Bagels and cream cheese all around!

I love surprises.

Etsy Shop Highlight of the Week

This week's highlight is TortoiseLovesDonkey.

These are so totally cute. I may just have to have a few to bring a little life to a window sill near me.

And I just love this photo:

Check out their Etsy shop, eh? Which Etsy shops do you love?

I Heart Hats


Hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend! I sure did. Though I must admit that I'm not a fan of this rainy cooler weather that has shown up.

With that in mind, I think I'll be rocking my new Bear Bryant houndstooth fedora. Must wear on game day.

RTR, baby!

Just a quick little update:

If you were lucky to get one of the Heartsy vouchers offered for my shop last week, be sure to use them before the end of November when they expire. This is perfect timing for holiday shopping!

And speaking of holiday shopping, the holidays will be here before you know it! Each year, I tell myself that I will be proactive and shop throughout the year, and each year I'm freaking out a week before Christmas because I've done nothing. Not this year! No siree! I will not procrastinate this year!

The top things on my list:
-- Handmade jewelry for my besties (I have QUITE a few favorite shops on Etsy)
-- Cute housewares for my sisters
-- Pocketbook for my momma
-- Books, movies and iTunes cards for my brother

What will you be shopping for this year?

Etsy Shops Highlight of the Week

Now that it's September, my mind automatically shifts to an autumn mindset. With that, for some reason, comes a desire to nest like it's my J.O.B. No, I'm not with child. But I'm completely in the mood for a decor overhaul. Lunch breaks will be spent at Bed Bath & Beyond, HomeGoods and maaaaaybe Anthropologie.

At the moment, I'm in the mood for a big piece of wall art and fresh pottery. In fact, I could do a month of posts on pottery. Some of my favorites:
