Daniel tells us, “Let me take you on a biking adventure in the next few minutes. And not any kind of adventure, but one that has a happy ending. You get the sarcasm here right? I’m far from talented when it comes to English writing. Stay for the photos maybe?”

“I’ve had some luck this season with the weather but adding a super sweet couple like Caity and Dave just blew my expectations away for a chilly fall afternoon at Belmont Plateau, Philadelphia.”

“They rode bikes, read to each other on a picnic blanket, opened champagne and even impersonated Red Ridding Hood, if Dave would’ve agreed to play the big bad wolf. All of this under the beautiful backdrop of the Philadelphia skyline, transforming every minute into a gorgeous red hot sunset.”

Ooh, Sparkly: Metallic Wedding Shoes

Your wedding shoes don’t have to be boring, especially around the holidays. If there’s one place where you can totally take advantage of a pop of color, it’s your shoes! Today we’re sharing metallic wedding shoes we know you’ll love! And, might I add, they’re quite comfortable flats. Plus, they all have a pop of something blue underneath. Perfect, right?

These Silver Screen Tieks are my fave.

I’ve worn them myself. They’re very, very comfortable. The most comfortable flats indeed.

Loving these rose gold…

And how about these gold metallic shoes? Talk about making a statement down the aisle!

Gah I want them all. They’re a bit pricey, not going to lie. Tieks for all, I say! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a few of these in your stocking? I dream, I dream. Tieks to all and to all a good night, I say. I am picturing this pair of Ruby Red Patent Tieks for the holidays. Shiny, shiny red.

Dream along with me?

Go + see the collection of Tieks by Gavrieli. I promise you won’t be disappointed. And if you do grab a pair, tell me what color you picked. That’s probably the hardest part is deciding which color!

P.S. I received a pair of Tieks awhile back in wool, so I got to see the fit! They’re really, really comfy. That’s why I’m so proud to represent them on our site! Tieks flats are built to last and they’re totally foldable… perfect for portability at your wedding + honeymoon!

Giveaway: Return Address Stamp Custom Made for You!

So, this week we ordered our Christmas cards. I know, late much? We just tried, and tried again, to get the perfect Christmas photo. Taking a Christmas photo with an eight-month-old isn’t easy, even though in your mind you think, okay, we’ll all just stand there and S M I L E!, how hard can that be? Eight thousand snaps later, a few adjustments and outfit changes later, we had a photo. And it’s probably the most memorable photo we’ve ever taken. And now we wait for the cards to arrive, which means next week we’ll be drinking our eighth cups of coffee and listening to this on repeat and writing out all of these cards at once.

Secretly, I sort of love it. I mean, that’s part of the holidays. You wait, and wait, and then ohmygoodness it’s already here and then you sort of hurry to get it all done. And it happens every year! At least for me it does. The point of this story? My return address stamp is totally going to save the day.

My hand just can’t handle return-addressing so many cards. My patience can’t handle it! And it would take far too long. I ordered a return address stamp awhile back and it’s the best. So, if you don’t have a return address stamp yet, what are you waiting for, honestly? I wish I didn’t wait so long to get mine. Thankfully, you won’t have to wait long at all; that’s because we work with the lovely Sydney over at Studio255 and she knows that everyone ought to have a return stamp, whether it’s around the holidays or planning your wedding, which, let’s face it, involves a TON of correspondence. That’s why we’re giving one of them away to one of our amazing readers! Who will it be?
