Modern Calligraphy Fonts and the New Rare Bird Font Foundry

October 17, 2017

Oh friends, a few months ago the lovely Tristan B (Besotted) and Jessica (Magpie) reached out to me to see if I would be interested in being a brand ambassador for their new business, Rare Bird Font Foundry..and I literally squealed with excitement!  Not only because I’m such a fan of beautifully curated fonts, but because of their true passion for high-quality creative fonts, from hand-lettered styles to modern calligraphy fonts. Rare Bird is a gamechanger and is all about finding truly talented artists and working with them to create a completely unique font for artists who appreciate detail and beauty. With that being said, this week I’m going to share with you some of their fonts I love and how you could use it!

Modern Calligraphy Fonts

I just had to start with this INSANELY BEAUTIFUL modern calligraphy font by Karla Lim of Written Word Calligraphy. It’s delicate, ornate, classic, and just the right amount of playful. I’ve been a fan of Karla’s for awhile now and absolutely love that she’s a Rare Bird Artist!  I mean, can you only imagine how beautiful this could be for wedding invitations and envelopes! And even for branding pieces for businesses. I’m in love. —> SEE IT HERE!

I literally just mocked up this ‘beach wave spray’ to show you how it can be used for branding and businesses. And I have to say, I would very much love to have this bottle just sitting in my bathroom just for visual purposes and for styling, not even to use! This shows you how awesome and versatile these modern calligraphy fonts really could be ;)

The options are literally endless when it comes to these modern calligraphy fonts and I cannot wait to show you so many more ways to use them and even get you a freebie or two. Stay tuned as I’ll be sharing the next pretty one soon!

Autumn Interior Inspiration

October 5, 2017

Goodness, it’s been foreva! I’ve been a busy bee so I thought I would quickly share with you a bit of my Autumn interior inspiration! I normally don’t incorporate many colors into my home (hello to my love of white), but this year I’m itching to incorporate some blue hues and pair it with some warm orange/yellows..considering I just bought these preserved leaves here and here!  — And c’mon, how cute are those ombre blue pumpkins! – And yeah..I’m still going strong with that buffalo plaid trend ;)

Currently Coveting + Shopbop Sale

September 26, 2017

Hey friends! It’s been awhile, but I thought I would pop in quick to share a few fun things! You already know how much of a fan I am of ShopBop..but guess what? They just re-branded and I LOVE it!  The entire look actually feels more welcoming and a bit more chic and comfortable.  The website and app are even more user-friendly than ever…and the best part is their packaging, it’s a beautiful peachy-orange color! I literally still have the box sitting in my office because of how gorgeous the color is inside, I want to re-gift it!

In other news, they are also having a big SALE too, so if you use CODE: EOTS17 you’ll get up to 25% off your total. With that being said, I thought I would share a few fun things I’m currently coveting from their shop!

End of Summer Reading List

September 5, 2017

Considering it’s been awhile since I’ve posted I thought I would share my end of summer reading list with you!  I typically read every night before bed to help me fall asleep (unless it’s a super good book) and most times just choose one book a month from the Free Kindle First monthly books from Amazon. If you don’t do that, I recommend checking it out because usually at least one of the six to choose from is good :) BUT, last month I decided to start using kindle so I could rent and more books, and even listen to some on Audible. I’m currently really into post-apocalyptic books (no surprise) and will share a couple below!

New To My Closet :: Shopbop Finds + A Sale

August 15, 2017

It feels like it’s been forever since I posted a blog! With that, I wanted to pop in quick to share with you a few items that are new to my closet (and home) and some feedback on them. Just as a note: I love Shopbop because the items are literally at my door within a day (amazon Prime 2day, but their distribution center is like 20 minutes from me ;)…and waiting a day beats me having to drive to the mall.  For example, those travel bags were ordered yesterday morning and were delivered to my door this afternoon. (Bonus, free returns up to 10 days after receiving). P.S. make sure to check out the SALE here which is 20% off already marked down items just by using the code TREAT20 ;)

NewToMyCloset-SaffronAvenue-ShopbopPINK TOP :: I love this top, there isn’t much covered under the mid-drift, but it’s comfortable and super cute! (similar here)

EARRINGS :: I’ve been dying for these earrings and finally go them, and the colors they have are amazing! (More HERE)

TRAVEL BAGS :: Adding to my collection as I’m obsessed (VanityHair StuffToiletriesMakeup)

FLARE DENIM :: Sooo comfortable! They are quite long, but worth getting hemmed!

SWIMSUIT :: I’m obsessed with this, it’s for our Mexico trip in January and I cannot wait to wear it with some short!

VASES :: Run, skip, hop to snag these vases. They are bigger than expected and the cutest ever (only 3 left)!

FLASK :: I got the pink one HERE but the gold is gorgeous too. It is small but totally worth using ;)

STRIPE TOP :: I love the style/design..it is however very light and short and will probably pair with high-rise denim.
