Vacations on Instagram

Somehow I went to New Orleans and barely took any photos. And then went to the mountains and took a good amount of photos, but mostly of water and videos of us laughing. But this summer has really been fabulous. Just really lovely and liberating. I feel good. I feel good about me. I feel good about the rest of this summer.

I've been really slacking in the blog department and I just talking about how I've been slacking and not really doing too much about it. The thing with this blog is, when I have a lot going on and am as busy as I've been at work, that doesn't leave a lot of time (or effort) left for blogging. But I love this blog and the things I get to create for it, so now that I'm getting settled into this new home and have a weekend home before my next vacation (!!!), hopefully I'll have some new content up soon.

Happy Halloween

Just popped in to say Happy Halloween to all my lovely readers!

Halloween holds a special place in my heart. I love the candy, costumes, the idea of trick or treating, carving pumpkins, and watching Halloween movies on the sofa. Last weekend we held a little pumpkin carving party at our house with pumpkin beer, spiked hot apple cider, and pumpkin and chocolate doughnuts. Tonight we'll be watching some Hitchcock movies and eating stew. Friday we will be adorning our costumes for some bar time; I'm dressing as Audrey Hepburn and Tim as Indiana Jones (!!!) 

What are your Halloween plans? Did you already celebrate?

Lately in Instagram

Things have been going along pretty well these days. Been crafting and baking away recently and all of a sudden, September is almost over. T's birthday is coming up next week and I have a full weekend ahead of me....Off to the city tonight for some Fringe shows, flea market tomorrow morning then spending the rest of the day prepping for T's party. But Sunday is my relax day.

From left: Audrey enjoying a new box; both cats on the couch; one of my fav thrift stores; sewing a pillow cover (check back for DIY!); soup, super nintendo, and a kitty; Abbey playing dead; behind our apartments; my first scarf of fall; new shoes; Audrey doing a great job of guarding some vintage sheets; our coffee table, in parts; Abbey; giant plate of snickerdoodles (check back for recipe!); first pumpkin spice latte of fall; me at work; a giant trip to the craft store; Abbey hanging out in my newly made wreath (check back for DIY!); AND applesauce cupcakes to be on the blog tomorrow! Whew...that was a lot!

Two Weeks in Instagram

This isn't much of an update I've been neglecting Instagram a bit since I've been busy with little things that don't seem interesting enough for Instagram. I don't think anyone needs to see pictures of emptying boxes and making dinner. But I spent most of last week down the shore with my parents while T was at drum camp and this week has kind of been a blur. I can't really tell you what I've spent my nights doing, because I can't really remember. Odd, huh?

But 7 hours until the weekend, and I want to celebrate it!

From left: My mom & I's ferry tickets for outlet shopping, grapefruit martinis, beach in Wildwood Crest, Sand & Boardwalk, Pina Colada in a pouch, Abbey!, T hung this picture shelf while I was at work, Abbey & T=BFF, My car had a birthday, Regal Abbey, Morning walk to the car, & my new beautiful typewriter.

Product Review: Stickygrams

I'm not sure how I discovered Stickygram, but when I did, I knew I wanted them. I love taking photos and having my iPhone with me at all times means that I capture a lot of moments on my phone rather than my DSLR. I'm also a big fan of Instagram and use it constantly (follow me @dcampeggio). When we moved, I knew I wanted these photo magnets for our fridge.

I have to say, ordering from them was a lovely experience. Super easy to use and they came in the mail only a few days later. I also think their logo, website, and blog are designed really well and reflect a fun, playful persona. $14.99+free shipping for nine magnets, so the price is very decent as well.

My biggest concern before ordering was that they wouldn't be strong enough to actually hold anything on the fridge. But I was wrong and they are fully functional. I honestly love this product. My only problem is that we have a stainless steel fridge (nonmagnetic) so we had to stick them to the sides. 

I can't wait to take more great Instagram photos to order another set!

Have you ordered from them yet?
