Looking for Adventure…

I know, I know, I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been too busy soaking up the start of summer and adventuring.

Adventuring (verb): To engage in hazardous and exciting activity, especially the exploration of unknown territory. Well, maybe less on the hazardous side, more on the exciting side…

Adeventure #1 was to NYC over Memorial Day to hang with my fellow JCR Girls Jocelyn & Aislinn!

New-York-Trip-Brooklyn We ♥ Brooklyn.

We even went on a mini adventure to J.Crew Bridal!

From Atlantic to Pacific
Adventure #2: My first trip to Cali followed shortly after.

I met up with the Love Your Melon Tour in LA to assist with marketing strategy and event promotion. They currently have a team of college students from across the country traveling throughout the US. They’re visiting hospitals dressed as superheroes and personally delivering hats and smiles to children battling cancer! It’s truly inspiring. Learn more about Love Your Melon and check out their line of Buy One, Give One products.

Adventure #3: Enjoying the great outdoors, back in MN.

Since I’ve been back, I’ve asked some important people some important questions…  Will-You-Be-My-Bridesmaid.jpg

The good news is – they all said YES!
Let the games begin. #mandm2015

*Interested in a Bridesmaid Box tutorial? I’ll write one up if there’s interest! Let me know in the comments below…

Current Obsession: Catbird

I’m going to be honest here, this is actually a “by association” obsession. My roommate Britt loves Catbird (located in Williamsburg in BK) and I love everything she gets there SO… I won’t allow myself to visit the store. But I will make a trip up there soon on a day my self control is at a good level (I’m doing some conditioning for this by browsing the website regularly).

If you’ve caught midi-ring fever (it’s a thing) then this is the place to stock up. The rings really are so simple, but, if you are like me and do things like wear a midi-ring around your house to get comfortable with it, then simple is perfect. It’s also nice because then you can wear a lot of them and not give off a Liberace vibe (creepy, gaudy, etc. for those of you who don’t want to Google):

You can also look really trendy whilst helping a child blow his nose:

Sorry I just had to.

Okay so…not only do they have amazing jewelry:

They also have beauty and home products, and cute cards. Please see below for the only greeting card you will ever need. I mean, this could really work for any occasion:

If you ever find yourself in Williamsburg, definitely make it a point to stop into Catbird (and take me with you!). If you don’t live in New York, or if you’re just not in the mood to bob and weave through groups of dirty hipsters, check out their website here.

PS – Check out some more of our favorite midi-rings that you can mix in with the ones you are sure to purchase from Catbird:
