Does it get better than balloons? Something about shiny, colorful balloons reminds me of birthday parties and all kinds of good celebrations. Last spring, Maman (a coffee shop in NYC) teamed up with Anthropologie’s bridal brand, BHLDN, to create a helium-filled display that was all over Instagram. And Geronimo is crafting balloon installations all over L.A. – check out their Insta page.
Just thought I’d follow up my ode to carbohydrates with a wheat-filled pin-spiration post. I love marinara, but only my mom’s, so these are all pictures for buttery, cheesy, herb-y pasta dishes that are literally making my mouth water.
What’s your favorite kind of noodle?
Nor’easters aside, spring is in the air!! Tulips and daffodils have appeared at the grocery store! March is an “official” spring month, right? I love plants all year round, but since my birthday bouquet has finally kicked the bucket, I’m getting ready to bring some new greenery into my life.
I’m a sucker for succulents (see what I did there), potted aloe, and any other leafy green things. What are your favorite plants?
I’ve yet to be in a relationship on Valentine’s Day, but I still enjoy a lot of parts about the holiday. Chocolate? Yep. All-pink everything? Sure. Romantic comedies? DUH! Champagne? Why not?!
I’m planning to bring in some festive, heart-shaped sugar cookies for my coworkers today…and will definitely be hitting the clearance candy rack at CVS tomorrow. Do you guys celebrate V-Day?
Even though my wardrobe is mostly made up of neutrals (there’s a lot of navy blue, black, and gray in my closet), I love unexpected pops of color and pattern, whether a pair of bright sandals, flashy earrings, or jewel-tone nail polish.
This week, I wanted to share some of the cheery and colorful images I have pinned to my “color” board on Pinterest.
How do you work color into your daily life?
I love words! And fun fonts! Color! Shapes! Typography is a no-brainer pin-spiration category for me. In another life I would love to be someone who gets to think of these fonts and make words look cooler than they already are.
