Our Holiday Save the Dates with Minted!


Have I told you all how much I love Minted? I think maybe I have a time or two, and I’m here to sing their praises again. First off, because I’ve partnered with the amazing Minted team for our gorgeous wedding invitations (that I cannot wait to share in a few months!) and secondly, I adore their holiday designs. This year, we went with a ‘holiday save the date’ with fancy foiled lettering, to officially announce our wedding date in the merriest and prettiest way and share one of our fave shots from our e-sesh with Rebecca Yale.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good little evening of card prep and snuggle by the fire with spiked hot cocoa, but I’m totally OK with skipping the hand cramps and just popping on the stamps. And they have such a lovely array of choices to pick from.

Still need to check your holiday cards off the list? There’s still plenty of time—head on over to Minted! And don’t miss the sweet 15% off + free shipping deal today on holiday cards with code: JOLLY15FS

M’s Weekly Love List


Happy Halloween friends! What’s on your agenda this weekend? I’ll be heading out of town tomorrow for a bit of annual Christmas shopping with family. The kind of Christmas shopping where you buy more goodies for yourself and spend half the day eating and enjoying a few brews. Yep, that kind. And I love every second of it. Aside from that, I’ll be doing some last minute packing for my work trip to Mexico next week for the Jose Villa Workshop! I’ll be instagramming along the way incase you want to follow along!

Now for a few fave links I came across this week…


These shots from Cocorrina are mesmerizing. 

I can’t wait to watch this. I love a good thriller.


Fun last minute Halloween makeup hacks.

It never gets old.

Such a pretty dress for fall.

5 Ways To Eat Figs this Fall

Confession: I didn’t eat a real fig until I was in my early twenties. Fig newtons, yes. That’s sort of a sad statement for the way the majority of my generation ate growing up—sugary treats rather than whole foods. Thankfully, I’ve been enjoying these little gems in their delicious whole form for the last eight years and I love getting creative with them. This fall especially, I’ve been seeing so many tasty looking recipes in blogland and rounded up a few I’ve added to my must-try list. Bon appétit, fig lovers!
