Phew, it's another hot one. I don't have energy for more words than that. So, without further ado, onto to the best posts today:
Giveaway on Cup of Jo today for a gorgeous Alexis Russell black-and-white diamond cuff (worth $345!). Also Cup of Jo was just named one of the top 100 sites for women by Forbes, congratulations Joanna!
I love the idea of biking to a park, picnic basket in tow, packed to the brim with pretty napkins, lemonade, and some perfect desserts to nibble on, but when it comes down to it I can't get out the door on time, my bike has turned into a stroller, the children are crying, and my water bottle has leaked out all over the bread and cheese. Still, I continue to hope and aspire to the type of picnic posted on Design Sponge today. Also, hello, canned champagne???!! AWESOME.
Amazing giveaway at Hostess with the Mostess today for, get this, a Canon EOS Rebel T3, a cake pops roller, a Kelly Moore camera bag, a cake pop stand, and a cake pop starter kit! Everything you'd need to make the cake pops and then photograph them to perfection. I want to win this one :) Head over here to enter. You have to "like" quite a few companies on Facebook but I think it's worth it!
Loving this Chocolate and Cherry Pudding recipe by Nikole Herriott on Oh Joy! today. I caught sight of some cherries at the farmers market in Union Square this week. Perfect timing.
We live in an apartment in Manhattan, so a twin bed wasn't really an option for our toddler when she was ready to leave the crib. But I did love this roundup of 15 cute twin beds for children on Apartment Therapy today.
Looking for some vintage children's books from your childhood? Then you'll have to check out what Miss James of Bleubird Vintage found on Etsy. (I know quite a few adults who'd love this -- I personally love reading YA scifi and fantasy and find it to be some of the best writing out there). If you want to buy something on the OopsieeDaisies Etsy site, make sure you enter the Bleubird reader discount (SALE15) to get 15% off their books and clothing.
See you tomorrow!
