Going for it…

Considering my current apartment is one big mix of gray, black and white, I decided it was time to take a big time color risk in the new TH (townhome). I still can’t believe Matt is letting me do, but it’s a go. I tried out a sample of it tonight and I am obsessed! You may recognize this not so timid blue from the infamous redo of Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment in Sex and The City Movie. I instantly fell in love, because let’s face it, there isn’t a single thing I don’t love about SATC…well, unless you count Sam’s lesbian phase. Anyways, this color has been ingrained in my head and when I saw my new favorite interior designer, Emily Ruddo’s home office, it was a done deal. Images to come of the TH once it’s complete, but here is the inspiration.

Jimmy Who?

I had been scouring the internet over the past few months for a knock off of the ah-mazing Jimmy Choo “Private” and had zero to show for it…until now. It is such a classic yet fun and trendy shoe, that I have been lusting over but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend the $$$. I am delighted to say someone (BCBG) has FINALLY gotten with the program and made a look-a-like, see for yourself!

The beautiful Sarah Jessica Parker with her husband of 14 years, Matthew Broderick in the latest issue of Vogue. The article is delightful and the photography by the infamous Mario Testino is divine. I highly encourage you read.

Sip and Listen

I am a bachelor this weekend, which means it should be dedicated to all things girly! In the spirit, I will be whipping up the "St-Honore 75". I spent a little time on the St. Germain website, and this simple yet sophisticated cocktail called to me. Cheers!

  • 1/4 part freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • Top with Champagne


Pour first two ingredients into a chilled fluted glass. Top with Champagne. Garnish with lemon twist.

I freaking love Pandora, just love it. I will put on a current artist, and it will pull up gems that I haven’t listed to in years. Why I ever forgot about this song is beyond me, but if you have never heard of Athlete before I command you to run, not walk to your computer and buy an album or two of theirs. With that being said, one of my favorite love songs…

Forgive me in advance…

This blog may become a little bit more wedding focused, as today marks only 6 more months to go!! Ahh, so much to do and so much fun to be had! In the spirit of wedded bliss, here are some favorites of our engagement photos. Matt made my dream come true by having his cousin, Nathan Kraxberger, who is an incredible photographer, take our engagement photos in New York City, the second love of my life.

Striped Craze


Ever since I found this bedroom in House Beautiful I have been obsessing over striped walls.

Vertical, horizontal, you name it, I’m hooked. I am contemplating doing some light grey stripes in our new guest bedroom…what do you think, a go or no?

Silver striped tile is totally lust worthy.

I love how the purple curtain pops against the grey stripes.
