I miss the beach. There is just something about listening to the waves crash and feeling the sun on my skin that sits right with my soul. I love the sound of kids playing and the smell of sunscreen and the "no worries" attitude you get to have on vacation. When I returned from my honeymoon 2 weeks ago one of my first stops was to Nordstrom to pick up a bottle of Bobbie Brown Beach body oil and shimmer. It seriously smells just like the Beach and leaves your skin super silky and sparkling. If you are having beach "withdraws" like myself you need to go get some!
I have to say, it feels good to be back to blogging this week. Planning a wedding was great fun (well, parts of it were) but I love having my life back and getting to share with everyone the great products on my blog and writing about quirky life things! When I opened my new Smock Paper release a couple of weeks back it felt like Christmas at my house. To say I love this release is the understatement of the year. The colors are AH-MAZING and combined with the gold foiling it makes the release stunning. Seriously great job Smock!
If I had to pick a look that would work in every category (fashion, home decor, gift, etc...) and be both timeless and trendy- I would have to pick the black and white stripe. I love this- I use it in my home and I wear it all the time. It is pattern that will never go out of style and it is especially popular right now. Here are my favorite Black and White Stripe looks.
Each day it seems like I have a new line that I have been swooning over reach my front door. It really is one of my favorite parts of my job. One of our newest lines at Daniel Richards is Sugar Paper. If you are a paper connoisseur then you already know all about Sugar Paper and probably see it mentioned regularly on blogs. Here are some of my favorite pieces- can't wait to introduce it to the Dallas market next week!
Wow- what a month (or year for that matter!) The Wedding was beautiful and perfect. Everything was exactly what I wanted and i couldn't be more pleased that it is over and life can move forward with my Husband (still getting use to that!) We spent a wonderful week in Belize and now it is back to work. So so so many great things happening at DR right now and I cant wait to share all our new lines!!
