Save the date to join us at the Spring Thing Market at Chapelwood United Methodist Church next week. We absolutely LOVE doing this show. We’ve done this one for about eight years or more now and we love it every single year. It is so fun to connect with friends and long-time customers and we love the other vendors, too! Everyone is so sweet and brings such lovely things to sell. (The shopping is one of our favorite parts of markets!)
Brookwood Community always comes with their amazing plants and garden pieces. They have super deals on plants and arrangements (always love a bargain) that are so beautiful AND the sales benefit this amazing community that provides an educational environment that creates meaningful jobs, builds a sense of belonging and demands dignity and respect for adults with disabilities.

We had so much fun at Langford Market’s West Ave flagship location today! They girls who work in there are absolutely adorable and are so, so sweet and helpful. You should definitely stop in and check the place out. The decor and ambiance in the store offer a lovely aesthetic in which to shop and the clothes are really well-priced and offer on-trend colors and styles. Their jewelry isn’t at all my style, but their clothes are really cute! And maybe that’s why they asked me to come in and do a trunk show – to offer a slightly more dainty option. The customers were all very kind and excited to try on a more dainty look and find some things to layer with items they already had. A win-win! (more…)
Houston’s hip store, Langford Market opened a new location in the posh West Ave shopping center in River Oaks on Black Friday 2013. The store is absolutely gorgeous in a chic, simplistic way. It’s the perfect spot to shop on a lazy Saturday or Sunday – maybe just before or after weekend brunch at one of the hip new spots in West Ave – Del Frisco’s Grill or St. Genevieve (which both feature super cute ambiance and yummy menu items!) I think Langford Market is a little like a more reasonably priced Anthropologie – and who doesn’t love a little Anthro?! Langford Market has great deals on trendy tops and jewelry and they are currently having a sale – 40% off the entire store. You can’t beat that! (more…)
This morning, my sweet friend hosted a trunk show for me at her lovely home. She is just about one of the most creative friends that I know. She attended Parsons School of Design when we were living in New York and has made jewelry, designed clothes, mastered cooking and brings a dose of creativity to pretty much everything she does – which is a lot with her three kids!

Carmel-by-the-Sea has got to be one of my favorite towns in the world. It is stunningly gorgeous. The rocky coastline, the turquoise ocean lapping upon white sandy shores and the wind-shaped cypress trees all come together to form an intoxicating cocktail of beauty that I find incredibly relaxing. And the town itself is quaint and adorable, but also filled with delicious little finds. There are lovely antique shops, gorgeous home decor stores, galleries filled with amazing art and, of course, fabulous eats. What there aren’t a lot of is clothing boutiques. I’m pretty sure that’s because Sweet Pea has that market cornered. (more…)
Seriously, how cute is my friend Stephanie (above?) I love this girl. She is absolutely just as sweet as she is cute. And she’s just as amazing at throwing parties as she is sweet. Stephanie runs Stephanie Larson Events, an event planning business here in San Francisco. Her company provides boutique wedding planning & coordination services in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve been fortunate enough to attend a few parties that Stephanie planned and let me just tell you, it was like a Pinterest board came to life. This girl has talent! One such event was our friends Brian and Mina’s wedding. It was held at Rome Valley Vineyards in Garden Valley, California and it was spectacular (not to mention a TON of fun.) Brian and Mina incorporated so many fun things into their special day, as you can tell from the gorgeous photos on Stephanie’s blog post. (Sidenote – the photographer is also a friend of mine and you’ll be meeting him in a few weeks as well!) (more…)
Let’s face it, every time we hear about New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week and see photos of all of the glitz and glamour of the runway, we get the teensiest bit jealous, right? I mean, it does look fun to sit front row on the runway and watch such amazing artistry in fabric and design breeze by on the catwalk. And the parties – they look like so much fun! Back when I lived in Manhattan, I loved walking by Bryant Park during Fashion Week. You could just feel the energy and the glimpses of gorgeous ensembles weren’t bad either! (more…)
