i layed out the book on using a mixture of photos from real cameras, and i also added in tons of iphone pics. they all looked amazing, so happy with the quality.

REAL TALK / ADULT FRIENDSHIPS

adult friendships | designlovefest

we grow up hearing a lot of advice on dating and marriage and single life. but adult friendships, that’s another story. if you’re like me, your friends are like family to you. they take a lot of effort, compassion, time, compromise, and understanding…but the payoff is totally worth it.

topic: do you feel like it’s hard to make new friends as an adult? where do you feel like you’ve made some of your best adult friends? when you feel yourself drifting apart from a friend, how do we handle it? how much time do you expect from a friend? has a friendship ever felt more like an obligation to you?

it’s funny to see how different our answers are!…

REAL TALK: WEDDINGS

i’ve always been pretty open when it comes to sharing more personal stuff. i guess i’m just not the most private person. i also find it VERY interesting when people are able to talk about the real stuff happening in our day to day lives. i’ve been wanting to explore more personal, weird, awkward, intimate, questionable, thought-provoking topics on this blog for a while now. i have to admit, before i wrote this post (which thank you SO SO much for your thoughtful comments. i read each one of them and i feel overjoyed with the response.) anyway, before i wrote that post i was nervous about HOW i would introduce it and make it look cohesive with my blog. but now, since my site is taking a bit of a turn in the road and going the more scrappy route, i feel like it’s the perfect time.

remember when katie and i ran the weekly advice column? that one was a little more focused on career stuff (which we will still touch on) but this one is going to be more casual/personal focused. let’s see how it goes! i also have a team of great girls with different opinions and i think it will be cool to introduce different points of view. okay, let’s REAL TALK.

our first topic: WEDDING GIFT & THANK YOU ETIQUETTE. do you give a gift even if you don’t go to the wedding? do you think it’s rude to not buy off the registry? thank you notes, are they outdated or always required? do you really have a year to give someone a wedding gift?….read our thoughts!

DIY HOLIDAY SHOES

DIY holiday shoes | designlovefest

the holidays are officially upon us and one of the things we like best about the season is celebrating with our friends, families and coworkers at holiday parties. it gives us a chance to catch up, reflect on the year that was, sip a cocktail or two (or three) and maybe even hit the dance floor. this year we thought we’d ditch the ironic christmas sweater in favor of something a little more glamorous.

we’ve spent more hours then we’d like to admit on eyeing the over the top shoe trends that have been hitting the runways as of late. which got us thinking that this would be the perfect time to create a pair of our own to hit the town in. (and that don’t cost us one million dollars)

we found a great, inexpensive pair of high heels with a nice shape , sourced some at one of our favorite places in the LA fashion district, got a tube of high quality and got down to business.

in no time at all we transformed a pair of simple platform heels into show stopping, party ready works of art that we might never take off our feet.

i thought it was really cool that we could find one pair of shoes that allowed us to create three totally different styles that reflected the personalities of the girls in the studio. how FUN WOULD IT BE to have a holiday shoe decorating party!? very fun indeed. snap photos of yours and tag us so we can see your masterpieces.
