it’s my favorite … almanac industries clutch

almanac industries clutches | K Flick StudioI am pretty much in love with the new clutches from Almanac Industries, I mean, how could you not be? Screen printed, hand stitched leather, yes please, and this leather is going to darken and get richer over time like any good leather should. They are the perfect size to carry on their own or toss in a larger bag. These days I keep all of my items, wallet, phone, lip balm, letters I keep meaning to mail, in one small clutch. This way I can toss it into the baby bag in the morning before we head out for the day and all my items stay together. Then when I’m out on errands I just bring the clutch in with me and leave the big baby bag in the car. Or if I sneak away on the weekends I just grab the clutch and go. One of these is definitely going on my holiday wish list

homestead … crisp fall weekend

boots in the truck

It’s my favorite time of year, my birthday is around the corner, the weather is crisp and bonfires are a weekend ritual. Here is my wish list for this weekend.

1. I want to cozy up with this scarf!

2. The smell of this carnitas cooking is one of my favorites. With bay leaves and cinnamon it is perfect for fall. We the carnitas on salads, in tacos, with eggs in the morning, and sometimes just out of the fridge. I think this just moved to the top of my list!

3. I’m super excited for a day trip here next week with three of my favorite ladies.

4. I plan on wearing this outfit, but let’s face it that is pretty much my uniform already!

5. I’m obsessing over these sunnies.

6. And I’m going to paint my nails this color!

Have a great weekend, and I will see you back here on Monday!

it’s my favorite … garnish boutique

This week launched by début as a contributor on Garnish’s blog. If you are not familiar with Garnish Boutique and you are in the Baltimore area you should be. It is a phenomenal bridal boutique, elegant, inviting, casual and with impeccable taste. Even if  you are not in the market for a bridal gown there are still so many reasons to visit Garnish. I like to shop the bridesmaid dresses for special occasions. This way I get a dress that is unique, and I know will fit. Usually for about the same, sometimes less, than I would spend on a dress at the mall. I find that it take the stress out of dress shopping.

So take a look-see, I have some great content planed for the blog and hope that you will join me there as well! Here is a sneak peek of some of the great stuff that will be happening over there.

homestead … pumpkin picking

One of my favorite memories of fall as a child is pumpkin picking. My parents would bundle me up and drive for hours, 30 minutes, into the farm land. There were farm animals, corn mazes, a giant fort, hay rides, and fields of pumpkins as far as the eyes could see. Pretty much everything a kid could want. You can only imagine how excited I was to take Ari pumpkin picking for the first time this year. It’s true he was only 2 months old when we went but I could tell he was really excited to be there.

Hay Ride | K Flick Studio See, doesn’t he look thrilled? It’s true he did sleep through the farm animals, the hay ride, and picking out the perfect pumpkins. But he did wake up for some photos, and at his age that’s really all we can ask for.

it’s my birthday, almost

pancake cupcakes

So it’s my birthday month and I just revisited a post about pancake cupcakes that Courtney from A Little Glass Box made for her husband’s birthday this summer and it made me smile. She does such a wonderful job of celebrating the people she loves. Everyone should have someone like her in their lives. Who wouldn’t be super excited to have these at their party? Pair them with this chili bar, and a simple yet elegant table and you have yourself a perfect party for me!
