Today I’d like to share with you the jewelry of Moorea Seal. Her Etsy shop is filled with gorgeous carefully crafted pieces. My favorites are the raw stone rings. I also find myself going to her shop to admire the amazing photographs of her products! Don’t you just love these photos?
Last weekend I met up with my best friend, Megan, in Manhattan to attend the LSU Annual Crawfish boil. It was in New York, but it was definitely stocked with Louisiana goodness! Crawfish, jambalaya, Abita beer and a bunch of LSU alumni! It was at The Boat Basin Café on The Hudson River which is centered below a hollow traffic rotary. It was perfect weather and an amazing taste of home.
My Boston Photo Tour brings us to the charming neighborhood of Beacon Hill. It is a 19th-century residential neighborhood of Federal-style row houses known for its beautiful doors, brass door knockers, decorative iron work, window boxes, hidden gardens, gas-lit streets and brick sidewalks. In 1962 Beacon Hill was designated a National Historic Landmark which means the architecture is protected by restrictive regulations that does not allow changes to any visible part of a structure without the approval of an architectural commission. The narrow streets of this whimsical neighborhood are so much fun to explore!
Z and I took a weekend trip to Martha’s Vineyard for Memorial Day. On our one beach day the fog was so thick you could barely see the people a few yards away. It was kinda creepy, but a lot of fun. We also had an amazing evening at Lambert’s Cove Inn & Restaurant. One of the best meals I have ever had, and that means a lot coming from a New Orleans girl. I just love the photos that Z and I got from the weekend!
I’m sure most of you have heard of Pinterest, the highly addictive, social bookmarking system for images. If you are not familiar, think of Pinterest as a virtual inspiration board — a place where you can create collections of things you love and follow collections created by others.
People use Pinterest to collect and share all sorts of things. You name it, people are pinning it. Pins are categorized according to subject matter onto different boards. You can create any category you desire from home decor and design to science and nature. My boards, mostly art and design based, are shown below.
I have been having so much fun on Pinterest and want you to join in! If you need an invite check out my boards and pins, then leave a comment below of your favorite pin from one of my boards and your email address. I will send out as many invites as I can! If you are already on Pinterest leave a link below so I can check out your pins!
If you are still not quite sure what Pinterest is all about, Megan from Sorta Crunchy wrote a great post, Pinterest: A Beginner’s Guide with the low down.
My parents were here in Boston to visit me last week! We had a blast and got so much “touristy” stuff done in a week. The weather was cold and rainy most days, but we still had a great time. We stopped by Copley Square one day to meet Z during his lunch break.
