Get Fresh with Minted

Did you know that Minted, the folks behind the awesome save the dates and cards also do art prints and gifts? I had no idea. As a new homeowner I’ve been spending many a day searching for awesome décor for my home. Plus I have a long list of every type of party I want to have which will obviously mean invites and of course a “We’ve Moved” announcement.

I absolutely love this print of purple irises. The lovely purple iris is the flower of Delta Phi Epsilon which is my sorority. This print would be perfect in my new office or dining room. I’m painting the dining room a rich purple and my office a medium grey.

Now…. these 2 are my absolute favorite prints. I am a Jersey Girl born and raised. Us Jersey Girls are very proud of where we came from so of course these two prints are a must for my home. I especially love this first one as you are able to incorporate your own photos into it in the shape of your state. How cute is this?

Last but not least they have an amazing assortment of cards, save the dates, thank you’s, the list goes on. With all the party ideas I have for our new home I will need a ton. First things first we will need to send announcements to everyone that we have moved. I’m still debating if I want to put a photo of our house on the announcement or not or just have everyone see it for the first time when the come over.

Union & Fifth Combines Fashion and Philanthropy

I love fashion! I also love giving back to organizations. Which is why I’m always thrilled to hear about a company that is giving back. Union & Fifth is an amazing and I mean AMAZING store. They have super high end fashion from Chanel to Manolo’s and beyond. I fell in love with so many items on there site.

Here I created a couple cute looks to go with this insanely gorg Chanel bag. You can dress it up or down. I think the navy dress could work as long as you threw in a pop of color as well. I love the Chanel booties paired with this bag. I feel it is a given that you need both. Am I right?

As a trailblazing nonprofit designer online consignment store, Union & Fifth gives fashion a home in philanthropy by giving 100% of proceeds to charity. That’s pretty incredible.

How they got started…

In 2012 sisters-in-law Pam Trefler & Christena Reinhard cleaned out their first closet — selling the contents through a typical consignment store, they raised $40,000. Giving away that money changed their lives and Union & Fifth was born (so was a brand new Apple computer lab for students)!

Their mission…

To raise money for incredible non-profits.

Check out some of the organizations they work with HERE.

The Bachelor Season 19 Spoiler

If you know me you know I’m obsessed with all things reality tv. The Bachelor is no exception. I’ve been watching since Season 1. I absolutely loved Chris Soules last season with Andi and was so excited for this seasons premiere. (Sidebar it did not disappoint.)

That being said I noticed that one of the contestants Alissa Giambrone is from my hometown Hamilton, NJ. I was thrilled! I immediately started cheering her on (even though the second Britt walked out of the limo I felt she would be in the final 2).

I wanted to learn a little more about my hometown girl Alissa so I took to social media.

Spoilers beware!

Yes Alissa is a flight attendant. She works at Frontier Airlines which is a fairly new airline here in Mercer County. Why is this important? Frontier Airlines out of Trenton does not fly to Prague or Paris.

But Alissa did! 4 weeks ago she was in Prague. 8 weeks ago she was in Paris. Frontier does fly to Miami which seems to be her flight path typically so her Instagram shows lots of Miami pics. But Prague and Paris stood out to me. Ironic? Maybe.

My thoughts… Alissa is going to make it pretty far. She will make it to at least Prague and Paris. I’m really surprised The Bachelor folks didn’t make her take down her Instagram shots as they are clearly spoilers.

Check out her Instagram posts:
