A few love announcements....
-My favorite stylist, Rubi Jones, is coming back to NYC to do a pop-up salon! I'm so, so happy about that. So mark your calendars for Feb. 7 & 8! Just in time to get all pretty for Valentine's Day. (I always think fondly of Rubi because she was doing my hair in the days I was first dating Danny - and while we were preparing to get married. She always got the latest updates on our courtship during that exciting time! :) Also, she has one of the coolest hair blogs out there (see here.) image source
-I recently got these two antique candy dishes that belonged to my Grandmother. I decided to use one on my dresser and one in my bathroom for holding jewelry, and they're working out so well! Just wanted to pass along the idea. You could also use those pedestal candy dishes. Thrift stores and antique stores always have tons of these for cheap. :) This would be such a cute idea for a Valentine's Day gift!
Brooke, a former editor at Martha Stewart Living, has the BEST ideas for Valentines (above). See here for a whole round-up of some of her ideas on her blog. Then, there's these...from a another Brooklyn friend...
finger puppets, head bands & heart bracelets (she has a version for boys, too).
-One of my dear friends from high school, Linsey Maxson, has a little company called Sweet Stacks in Mesa, AZ and sells cake plates in all kinds of colors, shapes, and sizes. She makes them herself and they are SO affordable. We're talking prices like $8, $10, $15! My sisters and I remember sometimes waking up on Valentine's Day with some treats on our dressers, from our dear Mom. These would be fun for the occasion. (local pick-up only)
-I really loved this article about marriage, it is truly worth a read - "Three Things I Wish I Knew Before We Got Married." It just might make you want to "go home and love your wife. And go home and love your husband." I'd love to know if you agree with him and why in the comments!
-And last but not least, a date idea for tonight (Friday, Feb.1)! Our friend, Nate Gebhard, is playing at Two Moon Art House & Cafe in Brooklyn at 315 4th Ave. (btwn 2nd & 3rd St.) at 8 pm. It's a lo-fi indie sounding music, $5 cover. R Train to Union St.
Have a lovely weekend!! (And thanks SO much for the Hawaii tips!)
