Hello everyone! You all probably recognize me (maybe) from my illustrative series with Dandy during the Holiday season. Now, I’m back and I’m here to blog about pretty much anything and everything. My first post is to celebrate the Summer Solstice aka the longest day of the year. What other way to celebrate that than to make some fun popsicles that scream “SUMMER?” [Read more…]
Recently I have connected with some amazing ladies to revitalize the Dandy Blog. I have always wanted to create a fun, enthusiastic, and creative space to talk about anything from baking to fashion to whatever seems to pop into our heads. Being stretched a little thin I thought about how we could do this and keep the posts fun with fresh content on a weekly basis. So I reached out to some talented friends of mine that have helped us in the past with everything from photography to collaborations, and illustrations. This new adventure is a great way to bring together like-minded creatives that have so much spunk, personality, and style. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us! So without further adieu I would like you to meet the new members of the Dandy Blogging team!

I don’t think you have to look too far back to realize that Halloween is my favorite time of year! The cooler weather, the decorations, the costumes, and all the fun parties make it the most whimsical time of year! We decorate the store to the nines, make our “Autumn To-Do List,” and of course try and create the perfect Halloween costume. The past few years I have been using pieces from my favorite vintage thrift shops and also pieces from Dandy to create fun unique looks. This year a few friends got together and we pulled fun pieces from Dandy and played dress-up the best possible way…..Halloween style! [Read more…]
Recently, we had a fun little photoshoot at my house! We we’re playing around with Halloween DIY costumes inspired by Dandy pieces (that blog will be up soon), when I thought the best way to get in the mood was to make the whole house smell like fall! So I went on Pinterest, of course, and found this great and insanely easy DIY to make the whole house smell like Autumn in a bottle! [Read more…]
Summer seems to be on it’s way out, not necessarily in temperature, but with the kids going back to school and Dandy switching over to fall there definitely is a change in the air (metaphorically speaking). Change is a good thing, it keeps us on our toes, challenges us to do things differently, and ultimately allows us to grow. Before we completely say goodbye to summer though, I was able to squeeze in one more sun kissed collaboration with a great group of women, who have all embraced a significant change recently.
