THE ART SHOP IS OPEN!

I literally couldn't be more excited to announce The Art Shop is officially open on the website.

After years of doing custom illustrations and watercolors for invitation suites I've gotten more and more requests to sell prints online. And when I started showing my painting process and some behind the scenes on my Instagram story I couldn't ignore the idea of opening an online shop any longer!

So The Art Shop a shopable gallery of some of my favorite watercolor illustrations all printed on cotton paper and shipped to you in perfectly appointed gift packaging. Each print is available in three sizes, order one or order multiple prints to create a gallery wall.

I will be adding more prints each month and older prints will sell out and may not be renewed so if like something be sure to snatch it up now! Happy shopping girls! Here are a few highlights below for you to check out, let me know what you think in the comments below or pop onto my Instagram...let me know what you'd like to see in the shop.

Cheers!

5 THINGS MAKING INDIAN SUMMER BETTER

It's officially Fall in the Northeast...but it certainly doesn't feel like it. Temperatures are in the low 80's or high 70's on a daily basis and most days are filled with humidity...gross. And if you are anything like me as soon as the kids go back to school and the Pumpkin Spice Army rears it's ugly head you are ready for a chunky sweater, suede booties, a serious plate of mac and cheese and all the red wine you can drink, but it seems so inappropriate right now. So here are the five things making this Indian Summer tolerable for me.

1. Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum | Citrus, floral and amber undertones are almost all Summer but with a touch of Fall.

2. Nine West Ankle Strap Flats | I have them in buff and black...perfect for when you want a flat but still have the cool factor of a sandal. These are from a past season but they have a similar pair out now.

3. The Sinsear | A cocktail from Domino magazine's Fall 2017 issue. Apple cider and ginger will remind of the fall but it's still refreshing in the heat.

THE SINSEAR
{makes 2 cocktails}

1/2 cup bourbon
1/4 cup apple cider
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp grated ginger
2 tbsp simple syrup
2 sprigs fresh rosemary for garnish

Combine all ingredients except the rosemary in a cocktail shaker and add ice. Shake and strain over fresh ice and garnish with rosemary sprigs.

4. Plum Focaccia from Martha Stewart Living October 2017 issue. Um yum, that's all I have to say.

5. And a Diptyque Mimosa candle...because this one screams summer and it's literally the chance you are going to have to burn this one until it the end of next spring.

Cheers to this weird weather ending my ability to hide out in cowl neck sweaters soon!

MY UlTIMATE HOLIDAY WISH LIST 2015

So it's Black Friday...and my shopping has been done for days; some of it's even wrapped already (don't throw things at me please.) But I know someone who doesn't do his shopping until December 23 (hint, hint Big Guy I'm talking to you.) This is for you boss...and anyone else who wants to buy me something fabulous. Anyone who gifts me the martini glasses will be thanked with the dirtiest martini you've ever had. The Big Guy crushed my list last year (woo hoo!)  but somehow he didn't get me those new hardwood floors I asked for so they are making a second appearance.
