  • Dinner No. 1

    This is Elise. 

    Kate and I have been talking for a long time about something like this. We both know so many creative people with unique talents that it was only a matter of time before Dinner No.1 was born. Hopefully this is only the first of many Dinners. Kate really spearheaded this one, and invited some really amazing women. We have Kylie from Cooking with Cocktail Rings (I'll add links to the recipes too!), Jenn of Jenn Sanchez Floral Design, Shirlee of Quite Line Design, Jenn C. our gracious host and realtor, Kristin a graphic designer, and myself!

    Each of us contributed our gifts and goods for an evening of AMAZING food, activites, laughs, and magic. 

  • Home of LA: Highland Park

    We love LA homes. Craftsmen, Spanish style, bungalow, we want it all. We recently went to an open house in Highland Park (which is, by the way for sale) for our friend Jen (realtor extraordinaire and host of Dinner No. 1 but more about that later). 

    The house is insane. It’s so gorgeous. We took some photos and wanted to share them with you here. 

    That yellow tile tho... *dying*

    Staging in the home was done by the talented Corban of The Here Company

  • Madewell x A Tree

    This is a collaboration between Madewell clothes and this cool tree we found. 

    The aforementioned brand reached out to us with offerings of denim and the question, "How do you style it!?!". Yes. That many question marks and exclamation marks. We were surprised as well. 

    So with our newly gifted denim in tow, we braved the wild (an arborteum), climbed a tree (kind of.. walked around it) and styled away. Thanks, Madewell!

  • So You Don't Have To: Mother's Day Edition

    This is Katie and Elise.

    We have a recommendation for you. There are so many cards available out there, and thankfully, easily accessible stores like Target now have selections of decent (as in NOT a photoshopped picture of an old lady making a joke about getting older) of cards. However, our favorite new tactic for card-giving is actually card-hoarding. When we find cards we like, we STOCK UP. You never know when you’ll need one.

    All that to say we wanted to share one of our new favorite card-makers: Our Heiday. Here are some of our favorite selections from their gorgeous collection, including a Mother’s Day card! Cuz it’s gunna sneak up on you. LOVE these fun, beautiful alternatives to…. well… *this*
