makeshift society brooklyn

as a backer of the makeshift society brooklyn kickstarter, i got a free ticket to last night's launch party! i didn't stay long (as social anxiety got the better of me), but i did manage to say hello to anna (finally) and a quick hello to rena. i had a glass of wine and checked out the space. it's pretty awesome. and now i am totally angling for a legit reason to go there to work.

hope to be back soon!



a while back, casetify (fka casetagram) reached out to me to see if i'd be interested in creating my own case. i am always on the look out for a new iphone case, so of course i said yes!

the app is super easy to use; the hard part (of course) is picking which photo(s) to use. i toyed around with photos of olivia, pics of new york city, casetify's preset stamps . . . in the end, i decided to use a photo of my friend tania's awesome wallpaper. i like my cases to be simple and graphic.

ordering through the app was super easy and it shipped quickly.

love their simple, clean packaging.

and i love how the case turned out!

it's pretty, slim, but still sturdy. highly recommend!

thanks so much, casetify!


(pola)roid week

another 'roid week as come and gone. it wasn't quite the same this year for many reasons.

  • i had more fuji instax shots than i did shots on polaroid or impossible project film.
  • flickr is just weird now. the navigation is just so much different that it used to be . . . hard to adjust to it.
  • also? i was super busy at work and didn't have much time to scroll through the group pool.

it's still one of my favorite weeks, though. already looking forward to next year!


gwynnie bee

a co-worker mentioned gwynnie bee to me last summer. with a free month to try it out, i was definitely game. once the clothes started arriving, i was sold.

some of the items that have been in my closet. i totally bought that first dress. love.

having gained some weight during pregnancy and then a lot more from three years of being on prednisone for rheumatoid arthritis, i definitely don't fit in to my old clothes anymore. while this is not exactly ideal, the fact that a service like gwynnie bee exists makes getting dressed SO much easier.

it's basically like netflix for clothes in sizes 10-32. you 'closet' items that you like and they are shipped to you as they become available. the best part? if you love something, you can purchase it a reduced price. it's pretty much the best.

when the gwynnie bee team reached out to me to take part in their 'not a model' shoot recently, i was all for it!

mother's day 2014

a lovely day with my mister & my little. bagels, the botanic garden, cuddles & kisses, a late afternoon nap, and game of thrones.
