We’re completely humbled by people’s interest in our blog so we compiled some of our readers’ FAQs to share here. Most important of all, thank you for reading!
What kind of camera do you use and how do you edit photos? How do you make collages?
We both use a Canon Rebel with a few different lenses, including a 50 mm and wide angle. I do the editing in Photoshop, including any collage creation.
May I use your photographs on my site?
Sure! Please just link back since our images are copyrighted. Any photos which aren’t ours have the source noted.
I’m visiting Boston/Florence/NYC/Hawaii. What should I do and where should I eat/shop?
We have some epic travel guides we’ll post up very soon.
On what platform do you host your blog?
Wordpress allows for the most creative control in my experience. Years ago I was on LiveJournal. (Remember that?!)
What are your favorite stores?
It varies depending what I need. For special pieces of clothing, accessories, or shoes I love to shop small boutiques, markets, and specialty shops wherever I travel. Quality and craftsmanship tend to be exemplary and you’re usually guaranteed to never see someone else with your favorite things. For example my all-time favorite leather bag is from an tiny little unassuming stall in Florence and my favorite trench is from a shop whose name I’ve forgotten. BCBG is where I find most of my favorite special occasion dresses. For wardrobe basics, Zara, Nordstroms, Macys, and H&M are great and I always find affordable, trendy pieces at Forever 21. For inspirational browsing, gifts, and housewares, Anthropologie, Jonathan Adler, Williams-Sonoma, Crate & Barrel, HomeGoods and even Ikea are some of our favorites.
What do you do for a living?
I work full-time as a producer at an advertising agency and my husband works in marketing. I love working in creative environments and writing about beautiful, inspiring things has always been a passion for me.
How did you build a following on your blog?
When we started our wedding blog, we just wanted to record our wedding planning experience and share with friends and family, we weren’t looking to be bloggers. I think being passionate about what you’re writing, writing frequently, being honest and open to infusing a little of your personality into your blog is key. It’s hardly a science. The web is an amazing resource for connecting with others who are passionate about the same things I am and I have been lucky enough to come to know and be inspired by so many of my readers and fellow bloggers.
What did you study in college?
I went to Stonehill College and studied Communication and graphic design and the husband went to Bentley where he received a Masters in Marketing Analytics.
What do you secretly dream of doing for a living?
I love what I do and love blogging on the side, but I think that being a magazine editor, interior designer, event designer, editor at Style Me Pretty or flipping houses for a living would be right up my alley if I had to follow another career path.
