Scenes from my weekend…

This weekend started out with a little window shopping while I helped my sister run some errands at the mall.

How fun are these sparkly bow heels. Only $89.95!

Don’t they remind you of these Kate Spade Charm slingbacks?

I also had to run some of my own errands with my main side kick:

We picked up some fabrics for a color palette we working on:

{We were a bit inspired by all of the pastel shades that have been popping up in fashion.Oh course I had to add a bold poppy/coral red.}

I also saw a lot of this:

Hudson hates to hold my hand so it’s a lot of him running ahead of me and me chasing after him.

We also worked on some work projects due to the nice weather we were having and then decided to go out on a double date later that evening.

In high school I remember hearing that I a bunch of people would hang out at this coffee shop called Witches Brew. I never went in H.S. and then after H.S. I felt lame going because I figured I would be the oldest person there. So long story longer I had never gone to it.

Well I guess as I now 31 year old I didn’t care If I was going to be the oldest person amongst a sea of teenagers so we went and lounged in their cool vintage couches and had some yummy treats.

{P.S. I was not the oldest person there at all by a long shot. :) }

Then on Sunday morning I went to drop off a rug at my parents house. I’ve been working on updating their master bedroom since Christmas and I think we have made some good strides. My parents having a matching set of furniture! I know shocking and such a no-no in the design world, but I think many people have them. So I’ve been trying to add different elements to break things up a bit. The latest addition was the rug. People have mixed views on a rug onto of a carpet, but I think depending on the situation it can work and in this situation it works. They have a massive room and the room helps make the bed are a focal point and add some color/pattern to the typical beige wall to wall carpeting.

The rest of my day was spend helping my sister with a photoshoot. She is starting an editing business so we did a couple of different styled desk set ups for the different packages she offers.

Here is what we did for the package geared to small business owners:

I did manage to sneak out of the house for a little in the early evening to catch the 50% sale at a local thrift store where I picked up a handful of lamps and chair for $25! Here is my favorite lamp:

    Are you in Nassau County, LI? If so, I just moved to the area about 5 months ago and recognized The Witches Brew as a coffee shop that I used to go to when I visited my Grandma who lived in Nassau County when I was growing up. I’m a big fan of your blog BTW!

      Hi Deirdre,

      I am in Nassau County! Witches Brew is a couple of towns over. We so need to meet up!

        I would love to. I have a 22-month-old son and a 3-year-old daughter so maybe a playdate of sorts? I’m involved with a few meetup Mommy groups in the area and we go to fun places like Le Play Cafe, Barnes & Noble story time and even a few outings just for the moms. I adore your style, so when we get the chance to meet I may have to pick your brain! Feel free to email me anytime.

  4. Wow! Witches Brew! I spent many nights there in high school and college breaks lamenting over boyfriends/design school….one of many great memories growing up on LI. Now I’m 40 miles north in Westchester but I enjoy when you share your spots around LI- makes me a little homesick:) even though I visit often!!
    Thanks for sharing!
