Stationary and the written word really seem to be coming back in style, thank goodness! I absolutely love receiving mail in my actual mailbox rather than my inbox. Plus, paper goods; always so pretty! And the best thing is, they don't have to be expensive. As much as I love getting mail, I also like to send it. I think others really appreciate the thoughtfulness of a hand written note, so I am always sure to send them out, especially to all my C+I customers. So I sat down and got to work after my last pop-up! These fun and zesty notes with envelopes were a steal from Marshalls. Fifty envelopes and note cards in an assortment of colors and patterns for just $7.99!! Now writing and sending is even easier :)

So way back in January, I won a trip to NYC to tour the Chloe + Isabel offices and meet all the woman who had inspired me so greatly to go my own way and run my small business online. The trip also included a little photo shoot with some of the new pieces. I was told it would be a little pic in the catalog that summer. Well, guess what, I'M ONLINE! When you check out the Terrace Blooms Collar Necklace there I am, modeling it just for you :) Harder to tell, but still me, is the arm model for the Terrace Blooms Toggle Bracelet, and the Abby Garden Wrap Bracelet in pink. I was so thrilled!!! Now I totally can't wait to see the summer look book with my face in it staring back at me.
So if you want to look as fab as me this summer, hop to! Go to the site and get your goods. I already bought the limited addition wrap and rhinestone bracelets because once they are gone, they are gone. I am so in love with them because they have gorgeous floral Liberty London fabrics wrapped between the jewels... they are stunning and so, so one of a kind!

You guys, I can't even! Excited doesn't even begin to cover it. I'm like a little girl on Christmas Eve who just found out she is getting a pony in the morning! Chloe + Isabel is launching their very own fragrance, TONIGHT! At 10pm EST/ 7pm PST you will be able to buy this amazing scent that has top notes of lush peach nectar, Italian bergamot and juicy mandarin, mid notes of jasmine sambac, white violet and orchid and a lovely base of mahogany and creamy musk.
I don't know about you, but I'm huge on the wood/musk base. It keeps me from feeling like a fruity floral air freshener since it adds a rich depth to the smell. I love the way it mingles with my skin and settles as if I just smell that great on my own and I'm not actually wearing something to achieve my princess scented status.
The other great part is that it is a eau de parfum over a toilette, meaning it is more concentrated and has more of the actual oils in it, rather than alcohol or water fillers. So in short it is stronger and lasts longer! Yippee! And naturally, being from Chloe + Isabel, it cost less than all the other eau de parfums at just $58 for a 3.5oz bottle. BANANAS!
Get yours here tonight. I hope they have a lot on their shelves because I can sense it is going to sell fast... I am actually pretty stressed about getting my bottle! If you want a free bottle to give it a whirl, check out my Pinerest account for the pin it to win it contest!! Good luck :)
