Hello Friends & Fellow Bloggers!! With all of the projects (new and old) that I have on my plate I've decided it's time to sign off from Live Love Chic. Of course, I'll still be sharing all of my favorite things - if you'd like to keep up with me, you can find me pinning away on my Pinterest pinboards HERE! It's so much fun (and majorly addicting - don't say I didn't warn you ;) and I'd love to see you there...

Goodbye for now!




Serena & Lily - Take II!

Just last summer I posted some of my favorite things from Serena & Lily's lovely collection of home decor... but this morning I came across their brand new catalog and now I'm totally dying to redo every bedroom in the house (and living room and hallway...) with their gorgeous textiles!!

It's almost time to get Audrey a twin-size bed, so I'm seriously considering some of these cute duvet covers...

...and really loving the combo in the next photo for my own room.

Our living room needs a serious pillow update... I'll take the grey one & the entire stack below it, thank you! :)

And then there's the cover of their new catalog... so perfect!!

Happy Wednesday!!



Persnickety's Knits!

My sis-in-law, Nicole, is the lovely and amazingly talented knitter behind the adorable Etsy shop, Persnickety's Knits. I've used her hand-knit diaper covers to beautify little babies' bottoms for a couple of years now, so I can totally swear by the durability and utter cuteness of her products...

I'm especially in love with this little pink one...

...and this one would be so cute for a little baby boy.
There are loads more in her shop - they'd make such a perfect baby shower gift, and it seems to be the season... Happy shopping!!


P.S. This is my 150th post!! I think I deserve a reward... ;)



Love the cover of Vogue this month, photographed by the amazing Peter Lindbergh...

...it's so nice to see the lovely and talented Ms. Witherspoon gracing this month's pages, and I'm really excited for the upcoming Water for Elephants film. I actually happen to be reading the book right now, and every time the preview comes on TV, I cover my ears and sing, "lalala..." until Jeff lets me know that it's safe to look - I don't want to give anything away! :)

Hopefully I'll have time to actually sit and read the entire magazine front to back one of these days... but for now, scanning the beautiful images will just have to do!

Happy Monday!

Cameras, New & Old

I'm really beyond excited to be shooting a lovely spring wedding tomorrow, and since I'm in the mood for pictures, I'll leave you with this one:

One of our October wedding couples (who also happen to be wonderful friends!) gave us this beauty - just for the fun of it!! We can't wait to get some film and try it out this summer...

Hope you all have wonderful weekend plans!



An Updated Braid...

...who would've thought to braid fabric right into their hair?? I've been seriously thinking about giving this a go this summer ever since I saw it on Refinery 29.

I have a bunch of my husband's worn-in woven shirts that I've been planning to repurpose, and this would be a fun way to use some of the scraps!!

Check out the how-to HERE.

Tuscan Escape

I have a dream of gathering a bunch of my family members together and setting off to explore Italy... Imagine booking a Tuscan villa to enjoy with your nearest and dearest, and then jaunting off for day trips to taste wine, or tour the countryside - sounds like the perfect trip to me!

When I came across photos of this gorgeous villa, I knew I had to share...

How could you not be perfectly relaxed in a place like that?! They appear to be pretty booked for 2011 (as am I!), but perhaps in 2012...
