Friday Free for All–New York Trip and Other News

Hi everyone, happy weekend to you all!

Today I have just a few random things to share. Christy and I are just back from a whirlwind trip to New York with one of our favorite brands, HomeGoods and are still in recovery mode so I don’t have any new projects to show off but I thought I’d give you a quick recap of our REALLY fun week!


Before I do that, with traveling I have been a bit remiss on sharing all the fabulous inspiration this week from the Get Organized Blog Hop. I shared my home office on Monday, but here is the complete list of all the participants so you can pop over to their blogs to see their great organizing projects.

This Is Our Bliss

Back to our trip! It was a bit of a whirlwind tour but we had a great time.  We got to meet many of the other Pinterest contributors, brand ambassadors and bloggers along with the HomeGoods team, it was so much fun! We totally didn’t take enough pictures–which shows how fast-paced the entire trip was–but we still had a blast. Luckily Christy snapped a few shots of the gorgeous hotel, The London NYC…just look at the bathroom!

And here is the swanky living room in the suite, the rooms were huge!

We had the privilege of getting insight from representatives from Instagram and Pinterest, studying coming trends and forecasts for the industry in addition to hanging out with some really cool girls, we were definitely in blogger heaven this week. Even the centerpieces were HomeGoods-inspired!

We’ll be back with another post with more details on the good stuff (you can see all about what we wore HERE), for now here is a peak at my travel outfit. I showed it on Instagram and the necklace generated some buzz so I thought I’d re-share it.

Necklace  |   Ruffle Top {just $24 and super soft!}   |   Bag {Similar}  |  Pants   | Boots

The necklace is definitely a ‘statement’ piece but it comes in a ton of fun colors and takes every outfit up a notch. You can find it HERE, I have it in ‘Howlite” and I just saw it is on sale this weekend 🙂

That’s it for now! Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm everyone!
