Back.


back


We know it’s been some time, but we wanted to let you know we are back and better than ever. Summer was hot and trying, but we escaped for a good portion of it into the mountains to clear our minds and enjoy fresh air. It was epic and much needed. We faced some sad times recently, but have shared lots of happy ones together as well.

We hope that this blog brings you a touch of joy each and every morning {afternoon / evening} when you read it. It’s good to be back. Lots of big news to share!

xoxo,

Niki + Ali

Summer Obsessions


summer obsessions 14 / papery & cakery


Well, hello again friends! Sorry for my in and outs these days. I’m trying to enjoy my summer to the max. Thus far I have a season of Orange is the New Black & House of Cards under my belt. I’m attempting to tackle the next great American novel {what do you mean it isn’t White Girl Problems} and I’m solving world peace.

Oh right, not quite. {No joke about the Netflix series of course. I never joke about Netflix}.

My summer has been mellow, albeit hot and thunderstorm-filled. We are laying low for the most part and I’m trying to soak it up.

I thought I’d share a few of my latest obsessions with you. I’ll try not to be a stranger more often than not

1. Gentle Souls. Thanks to this post I popped over to Zappos and invested in a pair. No lie, I might have to have these physically removed from my feet. They are orthopedics but they are also chic. Ali walked for miles {no pun intended} in NYC this weekend without a peep. Trust me, good investment.

2. Ladies of London. I tend to fawn over the latest and greatest at Bravo, so it was no surprise  for my love affair with Ladies of London. Cole only raised his eyebrows at me a few times this weekend when I demanded we purchase shortbread cookies and drink tea with milk. What can I say? I’m invested. Now in search of all things Union Jack.

3. Coconut Oil. My sisters have been praising its benefits for quite some time now, but it took me awhile to go to the dark side. Now I keep a big jar right in my shower. Before I event dry off I douse myself in it from head to toe. It might be the best lotion I’ve ever had.

Hope your summer is so far filled with reality tv and fabulousness!

My Office. A Love Story

Dear New Office,

I love you so much, it’s difficult for me to express it in words.

You see, when we first moved into your lovely building, you were dreary. You didn’t inspire me. I pondered my next move. I created inspiration boards. I pinned things. And finally. I executed.

It’s hard to say what I love the most about you.

Perhaps its that beautiful cork wall, where I can save all of my most favorite scraps, photos and inspirations.

Or perhaps it’s the white lacquer cabinets, filled to the brim with invitations, papers and knick knacks that have meaning in my life.

Oh wait, I do love that gallery wall of prints and quotes and photos that brighten any day.

And these gem stone mirrors. And my giant wall calendar.

Or the way my bland black filing cabinets are now graphic statements with these o’verlays and a white ikea countertop.

Or my white dining room table of a desk. With gold office supplies.

Or this little guy that sums up my philosophy on glitter.

Oh it’s just too hard to give one reason why I love you so much. There are just about a million.

Hope you enjoy!

xoxo,

Niki
