Back To School


While we’re very happy to not be returning to school, there is something about the “back to school” shopping buzz that doesn’t really go away! With tax free week a few weeks ago, the stores switching over to their Fall looks, and the weather getting a little cooler (or it was…curse you Sept heat wave!), we want all of the things. The fun part about back to school shopping is that it’s not just clothes, or supplies – it’s both! Agendas, cute staplers and notepads for the office, unique sweaters and trendy flats for Fall, and a great useful bag full of goodies for your everyday look – happy adult back to school shopping to us!

Bridal Shower Cards

This summer I have 2 wonderful weddings to attend, and they’re my first friend weddings (aka a non family related wedding)! I’m still getting used to all of the pre-wedding events – I’ll be going to 2 bridal showers and 1 bachelorette weekend (yay!).

This upcoming Saturday is my 1st bridal shower, with the 2nd in a few weeks. Snagging something off of their registry was pretty simple, but picking out a sweet bridal shower card to go with it ended up being harder than I thought! When you google “bridal shower card”, you get bridal shower invitations, which was not what I was looking for! Luckily I have some favorite stationery shops favorited and was able to find more celebratory cards turned bridal shower. Do you guys have a favorite bridal shower card you like to send out?

You might be thinking, what is NSS2015? WELL, it’s something you should know about – it’s the National Stationery Show, and it’s amazing. Unfortunately it’s not something everyone can attend (womp womp), but you can definitely be kept in the loop by social media. It’s a massive showcase of stationers large and small, and the best place to spot new trends, beautiful cards and hardworking companies. We’ve been keeping tabs via instagram (#nss and #nss2015) and here are some of our favorite sneak peeks!

Sweet Notes

Valentine’s Day can be the cause for an array of emotions, but if you’re sipping on that hater-ade, you have to admit, this holiday sure knows how to make a cute card. It’s pun-city up in here, and we’re soaking up every bit of it. It’s also becoming more and more apparent through the cards that we’ve seen, that these designers are total fat kids at heart, which we are so on board with. I mean… bagels, hotdogs, and butter? Don’t mind if I do.
