Always a Bridesmaid, Never Enough Bridesmaid Heels

August 3, 2016
Pemaquid Lighthouse

Have you ever went home for the weekend and everything was so perfect that it made you wonder why you even moved out in the first place? That was my life for the past few days. I traveled home for MFB’s bridal shower, but I also squeezed in lunch with my Dad, dinner with my college room mate and her husband, and a belated birthday dinner celebrating me! I’m sad that I had to return to CT, but I have to…

Down the Rabbit Hole

April 13, 2016
Princess Tea Party

Last Thursday, a spontaneous pizza dinner out turned into an even more spontaneous beer-tasting party at my apartment. I always had an affinity for beer, particularly stouts, but unfortunately the craft-beer scene in Storrs, CT is nothing compared to what it is in Philadelphia. Nonetheless, our location does put us in close proximity to Treehouse Brewing, a small artisan brewery responsible for Julius, and we’re relatively close to the distributors of Heady Topper and Sip of Sunshine. I had none of those…

I don’t think there’s anything that can replace a classic analog watch as the perfect accessory, no matter how much technology advances. Watches make excellent graduation or anniversary gifts and have the added bonus of being able to be easily engraved; I myself gave this watch to my brother when he recently graduated with his MBA (and given that I’m only a student, it also counted as his birthday and Christmas present). Even better, watches can double as the ultimate fashion…

Planning, Simplified

Emily Ley Simplified Planner 2

If you’re following me on Instagram, you would know that it was my Dad’s birthday this past week. I’m terrible with remembering birthdays, or most anything else,  so I write everything down in my planner. Literally, if you were to open it to any day of the week, you’d see a list of the classes I have that day, if I was planning to go to the gym, outfit inspiration, things to accomplish in lab, and what I plan on…

Wednesday Wish List – Up, Up, & Away!

Wedding Balloons

I LOVE BALLOONS! Every birthday I want nothing more than to have someone fill my living room with balloons, but usually people will only bring me one or two. My room mate is fully aware that I use her birthday as an excuse to buy lots and lots of balloons – last year I bought her a giant Olaf shaped one and delivered it to her in lab. Kate Spade has these fantastic oversized Mr. & Mrs. balloons that I…

A Trip to the Post Office

Wedding Present without Card

Good afternoon! I know I mention the weather a lot, but when winter drags on for almost six months the advent of spring is worth remarking on. Today, for the first time, New England has hit the 70 degree mark!! I wish I could be enjoying it, but I’m stuck here at my lab bench getting ready to start a five-day protocol (#gradstudentlife). UConn grad students have actually been in the news quite a lot lately, first about our union, and then…

A Wedding Without A Registry

Alex's Bridesmaid Invitation

Later today I’m meeting up with an old high school friend at Panera. Of course, we could always go to the bar next door instead, but as we used to race to Panera for cinnamon crunch bagels and hazelnut cream cheese before band practice, it’s without question that we wouldn’t go anywhere else. Chad, the Panera employee that regularly served and flirted us, could count on us being there by 2:15 every Tuesday and Thursday, provided we didn’t get stuck…

Caitlyn and Ben's Wedding Outfit

Caitlyn & Ben’s Wedding Outfit by favorsandfestivities Officially three weeks after Caitlyn’s Last Fling Before the Ring, Ben put a ring on her!! They were married on a rainy fall day in the BEAUTIFUL Princeton University chapel before an unforgettable reception at Prospect House. The day was perfect in every way, starting with rain and ending with a sunny afternoon to allow for pictures under the fall foliage. As I already knew what Caitlyn’s dress looked like, the only other outfit I…
