New website!

Did I mention I made a new website? I used Squarespace. It is much fun and I'm still learning. My dream is to have a photo slideshow/rotating gallery on the homepage instead of the hand video that is seamlessly integrated, but obviously i have NO idea how to do that! Go check it out! Here's the weird stop motion video I made just to put something up, but I kind of like it.

Wrong Number Hilarity

AHHH something so funny just happened.

This guy called my phone 3 times looking for a certain Carissa, and I finally just let it go to voice mail. Then I noticed he left a message, and it said something along the lines of this:

"Hey, Rachel...Sorry, I've been trying to call Carissa. Just wanted to say you sound really cute on the phone, and if you are single in your 20's and are looking for a good looking guy in his 20's, you can give me a call. Not to sound stalkerish, but it's not everyday you get someone on a wrong number who doesn't totally bitch you out. So if you don't feel like meeting someone in a bar, and feel like going out sometime, give me a call. My name's Joe."

How funny is that?????/ I'm pretty sure it's the only time I've ever been told I have a cute voice- which really boosts my self esteem, since I've been under the impression that my voice is especially un-cute!

That's all. I hope you enjoyed the little story as much as I did.

Save the Dates

how does ANYONE choose ANYTHING for a wedding???

I'm not sure I'll ever make a decision.

This is awful.

I just found out that I'm on a Nylon Magazine's Great Etsy Roundup! Talk about a nice way to end the day.

Party Time

Last night we went to a holiday party. As always, my sequined blazer was a total hit. Some pictures:

Quit possibly the best photograph ever taken of me. I just got my haircut yesterday and the gal blow dried it all pretty. 


My friend Sadie rockin' the bike necklace and her new drusy ring that her bf bought her.

You can't do much with the mega bike ring other than hold a cup of punch!

Our friends whose house we were at made a ginger bread replica of the townhouse!

Someone brought this creepy pinata...I couldn't stop staring at it.

Andy making his best Grinch face.

Lauren wearing her new honeybee necklace that the above Andy bought for her!
Are you having any holiday parties? I decided they are one of my favorite things. T minus four days until Puerto Rico vacation, and until then some last minute orders!

Some things

Sorry my posting hasn't been consistent! I can see the light at the end of the holiday-craziness tunnel. Thank goodness though, the orders are still coming in!

Tomorrow I'm getting a haircut way out of my price range, but my hair has been feeling heavy and horse-y lately, so I thought I'd treat myself. We have a couple holiday parties to go to Saturday (one called Christmas Town! Can't wait.)

All I want is to wear loads of red lipstic. And maybe a sequin blazer. And by maybe, definitely.

In other news, poor B had food poisoning and I spent the day nursing him back to health. I wore my onesie from Target (best purchase I ever made) and now he's in bed sleeping, I'm catching up on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! And by catching up, I mean re-watching episodes I've seen probably 5 times already. New episode tonight! What is wrong with me???

Here are some pictures from when Emily was here for a fun-filled visit!

And now here I am, sitting in my onesie, sipping a beer and eating multigrain tortilla chips like theres no tomorrow. Time to clean out my purse and wallet!!!!

New Drusy!

I'm almost out of my batch of beautiful blue drusies! Sad. This is the latest ring:


It's just so sparkly and deeply blue! I like the effect the frosted silver has on the stone- it really makes it pop!
Post party update: Ben's alseep, Emily's asleep, I'm awake listing things. And watching old episodes of America's Next Top Model. What are you doing?

Party Hardy!

I love having parties!! We had a little bar which Ben tended, plates of cookies and donuts and cheese and mini hotdogs, and everything went! We made two punches: a champagne ginger sparkler which we made using three bottles of cheap champagne, ginger, sugar, and strawberries. The other one was from the NY Times website, Original Chatham Artillery Punch. Be warned if you make it: it's strong!

Ben singing in the festive doorway.

I tried to take photos of everyone in front of the snow flakes! That there's Emily.

Our "bar" at the beginning, which our hilariously oversized lamp from the Salvation Army. 

Ben dancing in the festive doorway.


My favorite place in the apartment- it's so well decoriated and accessorized! 

Ben sh-sh-shaking up a Blood Orange Manhattan.

Helen and Emily relaxing before guests come.

Jon, shamefully under dressed.

A neat poster we have to hang up.


Ben's co-workers.

Bathroom glamour shots.

Look at that mingling!




Noah on my picture wall.

One of the few non-hideous photos taken of me all night!
All in all, it was a smashing success. At 11:30 after everyone left, I basically cleaned up the whole apartment, which is a true delight to wake up to!
