Give Thanks

What's more fun than supporting family AND wearing beautiful jewelry? Nothin'! When I ordered this "give thanks" necklace from Tynel's etsy shop, Little Lambs Eat Ivy, I had no idea how quickly it would become one of my absolute favorite pieces. By now you're probably aware of my love of all things gold and my penchant for "Carrie" moments. Few things can top the opportunity to add a little nameplate action to my jewelry collection and I'm just smitten with the sweet twist on an accessories staple.

In honor of being thankful (and on vacation... woohoo!), here's a little list of everything I'm thankful for right now:

- finding new friends with big hearts and a ton of talent - the luxury to spend a little downtime just Lo and me - a wonderful relationship with the most thoughtful man (I'm lookin' at you Mr. Jackson) - vacation! and the opportunity to finally meet some of my blogger friends in person - warm Spring days, endless sunshine and the perfect shady hat - a few extra hours to get things done - motivation to make some big changes and tackle a few fun projects - brunch & mimosas (duh) - sister time with my best friend and soon-to-be 19 year old baby sister - slowly working through my 101 in 1001 project

and because we're thankful for you too, Little Lambs Eat Ivy is offering Chelsea & The City readers 30% off this fun necklace! What are you thankful for?

Stationary Roundup


weather it together, merci, xoxo, bees knees, hello telegram, monogram, hostess thank you, hellojust a little note

One of my big plans for the new year is to send more snail mail! There are few things better than opening our letter box and finding a fun little package for me... it feels like Christmas all over again and with Facebook, Instagram and E-mail dominating most of our days it's nice to take the time to really show loved ones that you care. Since I haven't amassed a huge stationary collection just yet, I have big plans to stock up during 2014. I'm expecting most of my shopping budget to go towards paper products and I'm not mad at it...

Recently, I signed up for a little pen pal experiment via One Fine A and Alecia from Likes of Us sent me the sweetest note in the mail... I love this little community of blogland and all of the great relationships it puts in the works. What fun!

Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

  holiday-gift-guide-stocking-stuffersI've got a secret: stocking stuffers are my favorite gifts to receive. They're always frivolous little treats or trinkets and I just love how fun the whole ritual of waking up early and immediately emptying our stockings is! Since I've taken on the role of Santa at our house, I get to pick out tiny bits of sparkle and sweet for everybody.
