Friday Fab Four

After the endless rain this week, I decided that Hannah needs her first raincoat. I really love this one, but the idea of spending so much on a child’s clothing gives me pause. Before I had a kid, I used to fantasize about my child wearing the most fashionable clothes. Then I witnessed the horrors my child manages to inflict on her clothing before I can even get her downstairs for breakfast. After witnessing her blatant lack of sartorial respect, Hannah wears basic Gap and Target tshirts and leggings on the regular. This week I was randomly perusing Halloween treat recipes […]

Friday Fab Four!

Uhhh, did you know you can buy swimsuits on Etsy?! Is there anything this site can’t do??? Hannah has been wearing overalls a lot this summer. They are SO CUTE. I put her in her little Martha Washington bonnet and she looks like a presidential farmer. I love these. I made my first homemade pizza! It was delish, except next time I am adding mozzarella to the recipe. Also, if you don’t have a pizza stone but you want to ensure your pizza crust is crispy, preheat your baking sheet to 500 degrees for 15 minutes before you put your pizza […]

5 Online Shops I’m Obsessed With Right Now

  I recently discovered this ceramics shop on Etsy that makes every day ceramic pieces and (now here’s the kicker, people) ceramic jewelry. I ended up getting two pieces from the shop. This adorable heart necklace (pictured) and a giraffe pendant. I’ll show that one off soon. If you want to get yourself a piece from this store use the code ‘CLARABELLE’ to get 25% off!! Everyone is doing sassy t-shirts and makeup bags, but these pillowcases take sass to a whole new level. Oh, and for all you bed hogs out there, this pillowcase set perfectly stakes your claim on the bed. You guys, this […]

A Very Etsy Holiday

In case you didn’t know. You can basically get anything that is cool and worthwhile on Etsy. This is a fact. So I have compiled 25 gift ideas, all from Etsy, to help make you the most popular gift-giver ever this holiday season. For the girl who’s house proud: This minimalist print for the newly married couple.

An NYC-themed throw pillow for your best […]

Winter Patriotism

So, a few weeks ago I went to my Aunt’s ordination (woot!). We were all supposed to wear red to the service — but I wore black, ugh. The reason I wore black is not because I am terrible, it is because when I went to pack, I realized I had nothing red in my closet. Except for a sweater from Hollister which isn’t really appropriate for outside of one’s house. I found this absence of red very strange. How did I own nothing red? When I got back from the service I perused Etsy and I found this amazing skirt. It was […]

Etsy Favorites

Etsy is THE best. Recently, I have started doing a lot more shopping on the site, so I wanted to share some of my very favorite stores. ♥ Necessity is the Mother: I have the cutest yellow skirt from this shop that I absolutely love. The designer of these stunning jumpers, skirts, and dresses makes everything by hand and, if my skirt is any indication, everything is incredibly well made. ♥ Delia Langan: One of my absolute favorite Etsy stores is Delia Langan. Delia handcrafts the most beautiful and dainty jewelry. I am obsessed with my I’m Hammered necklace. I never take it […]
