A Super, Duper Exciting Announcement!!!

Today I absolutely could not be more overjoyed to share something with all of you that I have been keeping to myself which, if you know me, is pretty hard for me to do. Today marks my final day as a designer for Abercrombie and Fitch and I will now be pursuing Something Swell full time. While this decision is exhilarating and terrifying all in one, it is something that I know I need to do for myself. I have always been the kind of person who makes decisions based on the most pragmatic and safe route – deciding to go to…

Our Most Used Wedding Gifts and Some Things We Wish We’d Registered For

When it came to registering for our wedding, I was weirdly reminded of packing for college in that I had no idea what I needed to get, and only a vague idea of lots of stupid things that I wanted and didn’t need. Weddings in themselves are stressful enough, and a lot of times I think when couples are registering, they do it as a means to scratch something off of the to-do list instead of accessing their actual needs – in our case Antonio and I were doing long distance at the time, so I just made the list…

I was really slow to adopt Instagram into my life (my account has only been active for some three years), but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t become an absolute obsession. I am so in love with scrolling through all the beautiful images that pop up in my feed, but some definitely stand out amongst the others.

Exciting Updates + a New Video!

(Planner from Kate Spade) This past weekend I had a revelation of sorts. I woke up Saturday morning with the blindingly powerful realization that I am going to become a full time blogger. Now I don’t mean right now, but I do mean as soon as possible. With this new realization, and the subsequent panic that accompanied it,  I decided that I want to make a few changes to my blog. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it a re-branding because I love the way my blog is currently set-up and the overall aesthetic of it, but there are…
