Spring Forward

Wedding season, tulips, bubbly rosĂ©... an end to winter is finally in sight. This weekend I traveled to New Jersey to celebrate my friend's upcoming wedding in May. 

Me and the bride to be Vicky at Bernards Inn.

The Key To a Happy Marriage is.... 
Guests filled out their tip of advice on tags that the bridal party collected and read aloud.

Vicky had a designated pile of advice especially for her fiancĂ©, which included "Tell Bobby to buy you a lot of shoes" and "Happy Wife = Happy Life".  The couple met at law school so "Leave the lawyering at the office" got a laugh from everyone.

Happily Ever After.

We voted on our favorite cupcake flavor to potentially weigh in on the future wedding cake decision.

I need to take a cue from my girlfriends and get some color back into my wardrobe.

Congratulations, Vicky! xoxo

Fireball Hot Toddy

After work on Friday I met a friend at the bar for a celebratory drink to congratulate her on a job offer. I had been sick most of the week but needed to get out. I had the bartender make a traditional hot toddy. Saturday night, I looked over our liquor stash to see what was around to make my own medicinal cocktail. The only whiskey on hand was Fireball. Already measured out. Perfect. Consult Pinterest... voila!

Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
1 tsp honey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Black tea
Boiling water
Cinnamon stick and lemon for garnish

Cocktail found here

Loveknot Links

This New Canaan home is to die for.

Apparently models are real people. Lindsay Ellingson's typical off duty day.

I'm constantly trying to declutter and organize my apartment and life. Some of these tips are a little extreme (keeping the coffee table clear? I much prefer styled with books)... but there were a few good takeaways.

Not much going on with me lately...  just popping in to share these links I have saved over the past few weeks. Have a great weekend!

Palm Beach Dreaming

Ted and I will be visiting West Palm Beach for the first time in April. I don't want to wish away 1/4 of the year, but it can't come soon enough. While Ted is playing golf, you will find me lounging by the pool or strolling Worth Avenue. The flights and accommodations are booked. Now I'm planning our itinerary, tips welcome.

Synonymous with Palm Beach is Lilly Pulitzer. If you are a Lilly fan living on Earth, then you most likely saw the news yesterday that a Target collaboration is coming. See the sneak peak here and search #lillyfortarget on Instagram. After initial shock that my online attempts failed, my life went on without a 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target crossbody bag last September.  As the years go on I am trying to overcome the hype of these sales. That doesn't mean I won't be at the door when Target opens on April 19, bee-lining it straight to the home section. But if it doesn't work out for me as planned, I'll survive. Do you think this will be the most sought after collab yet?
