Nassau County Museum of Art Family Photos

We sure do love a great art museum and when you combine some great shots of a darling family you’ve got something magical!  Nicki Sebastian did just that and we couldn’t love it more.  The beautiful outdoors combined with the stunning art installations is flawless.  The originality of these photos couldn’t be more perfect!

Ah… summer camp! The place where so many fun summer memories are created which of course includes lots of time in the sun + swimming! We love this summer camp inspired fashion shoot by Katerina Venevskaya. Everything about these photos just smiles with sunshine + happy summer days. We can’t even begin to think that summer break is almost over so we will hold onto these images in our minds for a bit longer!

Personalized Stationery for Kids | minted

We have been long time lovers of all things paper and also the art of letter writing. We don’t take the time as much as we should to sit down and write a thoughtful note to our friends and family, but we hope to become better at making the time to do this. We also think it’s important to teach our little peanuts to do this and there’s no better way to get them excited about writing in general than with their own personalized stationery!

Minted is a fabulous resource for all your paper needs from holidays and birthdays to children’s stationery + journals. They bring the best in indie design from a global community of independent designers. You can choose from hundreds of stylish designs with customizable options + personalize a design to make it your own! We love the quality of their products and of course the ease of being able to quickly order them at home! Each design has different color options as well as different shape options for the cards. Rounded corners or scalloped edges finishes the cards off perfectly! You can even get coordinating address labels that really seal the deal! Each order comes with a package of outer envelopes delivered in an embossed white gift box.

Below are a couple of our favorite designs from Minted! With back to school just a couple short weeks away we are having fun writing some sweet notes to our little friends + letting them know we are thinking about them! We hope you will join us this fall and start this tradition with your little peanuts as well!

Mila’s Modern Nursery

Friday is here and we are in full anticipation for the weekend!  To help get you through the day we have a darling modern nursery to share with you captured by Julia Azcona Photography.  We love the clean, modern lines and the bold, black and white contrasting colors they chose.  The animal prints are the perfect touch to soften the look.  This is definitely a room that will grow with sweet little Mila as she does.

Blackberry + Honey + Sea Salt {No Churn} Ice Cream

It’s hard to believe it’s almost the end of July and we are starting to have back to school plans on our minds. We aren’t ready to give up our summer just yet and are still trying to live each day to the fullest. Of course that includes eating more than our fair share of popsicles, snow conies and ice cream! Our little peanuts have a serious sweet tooth and we can’t keep these summer treats in our house for very long. Lucky for you we are sharing one super easy homemade ice cream recipe that will knock your socks off (ok maybe flip flops off)! We used to be so intimidated by making ice cream because we didn’t have all the fancy equipment but this no churn ice cream doesn’t require all that and with just a few simple steps you can make your very own Blackberry + Honey + Sea Salt ice cream! Recipe below… enjoy!

Catarina’s Neutral Room

When it comes to picking a color for any room, you can never go wrong with a neutral color palette for both girls and boys. Catarina’s room designed by the incredibly talented team at Sissy + Marley is covered from head to toe in a delicate tan zebra wallpaper with touches of safari animal toys and decor throughout. Simple artwork, decorative pillows, and clean lines make for a minimal yet perfectly styled space. This dreamy + cozy room is perfect for any little peanut!
