Oh my, I am so sleepy and distracted tonight. I just want to curl up in this cozy bed and hibernate....

{home sweet home}

Tis the Season!

This is not a widely known fact--but I do not celebrate Christmas. Don't worry- we still get a tree and presents and the like- but true to my hippie roots (Berkeley, Santa Cruz... what did you expect?) I grew up celebrating the Winter Solstice.** SO when it comes time for picking cards to send I am always faced with the challenge of finding the "non-denominational" gems. Here are my picks for this year:

Which do you like best?

** I should just go ahead and change my gift guide to patchouli oil and incense, shouldn't I?

The Studio Gift Guide

SO- everyone should be sure to check out Christiane's blog over at DwellStudio-- -- because she is a great blogger and always finds the best things to share, and I'm not just saying that because she featured ME in her latest gift guide (but that's a good reason too... I know you are all dying to know what I what for Christmas...) Yay!

PS: while you're over there be sure to check out our brand new website-

Stylish, but substantial enough for winter. The perfect addition to my collection I think...

what to wear: winter wedding

A good friend of mine recently asked for my opinion on what she should wear to a winter wedding. Here are a few suggestions:

-Think darker colors and heavier fabrics
-Accessorize with pops of color or sparkle
-Take advantage of tights!

Try this look for a less formal event:

{shop this look} {Dress: modcloth, Shrug: Forever 21, Clutch: payless, Flats: Piperlime, Tights: modcloth}

Or dress it up a little more for an evening affair or fancier location:

{shop this look} {Dress: bluefly, Necklace: modcloth, Shoes: zappos}

stay tuned.. more ideas to come...

the first thanksgiving...

It was a lot of work... but we pulled it off! Hope everyone had a great holiday!

monday blues

Mondays are not my favorite days. Especially not after 5 day weekends. So here are some pretty things to help me through the last Monday in November.

i'm loving...

Vintage Globes! {perhaps sprung from my love of maps} I think I like them best arranged in clusters... so worldly.

So I am sure you can imagine my joy when I came across this sweet wedding on project wedding:

now we can swim any day in november....

"...Last night i had that strange dream / Where everything was exactly how it seemed / Where concerns about the world getting warmer / The people thought they were just being rewarded / For treating others as they like to be treated / For obeying stop signs and curing diseases / For mailing letters with the address of the sender / Now we can swim any day in November..."- the postal service

trying to make pink modern...

Kelsey and I are hosting our very own Thanksgiving this year--for the first time {without the help of mom!} And, although there will only be a few of us I still want to be fancy :) SO, taking a page from DwellStudio's Modern Thanksgiving Contest {though I doubt I'm eligible} I'm attempting to make my girly pink dishes look modern... Here's the first try:

not sure if I'm there yet...

maybe if it was Easter ...

sometimes I wish...

I was famous JUST so I could get dressed up for fancy formal events all the time:

Tonight I'm wearing this Stella McCartney dress with these Givenchy heels:

How Fabulous right? {...I'm obsessed with those heels, thanks to DwellStudio's Christiane}

I'll meet up with all my closest friends:

We'll be the talk of the blogs tomorrow. You can come too! What are you going to wear?

a magical engagement

SO- my BFF Meghan {the one getting married in the spring...} just got her engagement pictures--and they are so unbelievably cute I had to share--all taken by the talented Kate Headley.


 so much magic.

my parents were awesome

definitely just subscribed to the feed for myparentswereawesome. which is an awesome blog that posts pictures of parents before they changed diapers. it's a different world.

couldn't find any old pictures of my mom, but here's one of our dear old pop, doug fuller. sometimes i find it hard to believe he was ever that cool.
