Happy Halloween, everyone! You may have gotten some creativity out of your system at a costume party over the weekend, but it’s not too late to celebrate in style tonight, too. Whether you’re having a quiet dinner in like us (we’re celebrating one year of engaged life!) or stuffing your face with copious amounts of chocolate you can still stick to the spirit of the season with a spooky table setting. Throw in your favorite creepy cocktails and you’re good to go for the evening!
I’m so happy that we are well into the autumn season now. The temperature has finally dropped (after a warm spell last week of 28°C/83°F in New York!), and the boots and scarves are officially on. Whilst I’m pretty sure this time of year is everyone’s favorite for many reasons, for me it’s all about the creativity it brings out in people.

However, just in case you’re in need of some inspiration, check out these awesome creative (and no carve) pumpkin decorating ideas.
The weekend is officially here and I couldn’t be happier! What a crazy week of milder than usual temperatures and endless snow storms. Shouldn’t daylight savings on Sunday mean that it’s finally spring time? Today we’re heading up to Cooperstown, NY for a couple’s weekend away full of distillery visits, brewery tours and rounds of Cards Against Humanity. I’m also so excited to stay at this adorable inn. Have a great one!

With just two weeks to go until our move, we decided to brave the weekend crowds and get as much furniture and pieces crossed off our list as possible. While trying to buy everything in one go was a little overwhelming (manoeuvring two shopping carts through Ikea on a Sunday contributed to this!), here are a few of the fun finds that made it all worthwhile…
