weekend happenings worth mentioning

this weekend was great. we had alot of fun! although it was snowy, we didn't let it ruin our time!

i just wanted to share one of my favorite brunch places in philadelphia; green eggs cafe. i had the vegan banana pancakes! they were so good ryan helped me finish them all gone.

also we headed over to a good friend, ryan beck's, artist studio. i love his abstract paintings. i feel like they are perfect for open spaces and my livingroom:)

just wanted to share some good things. hope you are having a good week!

behind the scenes with free people

i just got back from styling free people's april 2012 catalog and wanted to share some of the behind the scene photos with you! we shot with up and coming photographer, thomas northcut, and headed to the desert of joshua tree. i loved working with all of the models on this shoot. it was an amazing one week experience.

here's what i brought... lots of layers, floral sunglasses, comfy docs for running around, and a book to read during the plane rides.

we stayed in palm springs and then headed to the desert every morning

new year, new beginnings

happy new year!

i know it's a little late, but this is really the first chance i had to post. i wanted to start the new year off right, so i decided to make a big brunch feast for new year's day. one of this year's resolutions is to cook and bake more. i have done so in the past, but have gotten pretty lazy about sparking up the stove. anyway, i just wanted to show you the spread... mini quiches, bacon (veggie and pork), french toast, fresh fruit, crescent rolls and coffee and mimosas to sip. it was perfect!

hope you are having a wonderful start to the new year! x
