  Homage at Crocker Park


The other day we were exploring the new development at Crocker Park when I happened upon Homage a vintage and retro inspired apparel company. Have you been there? I’m so glad I discovered it.


Not only do they have awesome shirts…the interiors of the space are so charming, I couldn’t get over all the cool nostalgia everywhere.From their display pieces to vintage posters to the bottle of Coke they offer you when you make a purchase, this store is seriously so Cleveland-charming you’ve just got to check it out.

IMG_2449IMG_2448From Brows apparel to Cavs tee’s and lots of Tribe gear, there is something there for every Cleveland sports fan…and even your Akron, Toledo  and other Northeast Ohio neighboring communities. Next time you visit Crocker, I promise you won’t be disappointed, it’s seriously one of the cutest little t-shirt shops I’ve ever been in. Adorable! Enjoy!

  Anthropologie Spring Fashion Show

Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 9.29.09 PMNothing says spring, like a good old fashioned, fashion show. So with that I would like to invite you to  the first look at this seasons colors, textures, patterns and all sorts of stylish spring/summer trends for all you Cleveland fashionistas  at Anthropologie!

Thursday, April 7th from 7-9pm at the Anthro at Crocker Park.
Reserve your spot here as seats are limited. See you there!

  GO CAVS!!!


Rest easy, Cavs fans! The wait from Tuesday is over and we can finally go back to cheering on LeBron and the gang. The city of CLE is flooded with wine and gold and everyone is #ALLin for game 4. If you weren’t a Cavs fan before, the time is right to join in on all the hype!  

If your’e looking for the perfect place to watch the game, there are some great go-to hotspots waiting for fans. You can check out Market Garden Brewery located on West 25th, along with Town Hall and Nano Brew on the strip. If you want to catch a glimpse of some newscast celebs, grab a drink on East 4th and you won’t miss a beat. Looking to enjoy this nice summer night? Join in on the watch party at Crocker Park or take a seat on the patio at Hoopples.  

Of course as a fellow fashionista you must have the perfect Cavs gear. All of your CLE fashion can be found at places like Cleveland Clothing Company, GV Art and Fresh Brewed Tees.  Although we may not have Kevin Love or Kyrie Irving, we breathe a sigh of relief that Mathew Dellavedova (aka Delly) is re-hydrated and ready to take charge in tonights matchup. After the Cavs got the win in game 3, their chances of winning the series have increased to 84%….but we know it’s 100% for the win!!!

  Lulu’s Candy Jar

Happy Tuesday everybody. Did you have a sweet Valentines Day? We had a great day including a romantic lunch at Parallax followed by a stop for some treats at Lilly’s Chocolates and then dinner at our friends home in Lakewood topped off with slow dancing in their living room; it was the perfect holiday.

The rest of the weekend was pretty nice as well, wasn’t all the sunshine and snow wonderful? And Bite Winter Fest was awesome as ever; great job to all of the organizers and volunteers. Sunday I went to a baby shower, did a bit of style shopping for this weekends Jump Back Ball and got some design work under my belt to prep for the busy week ahead.

I have been having a few issues with my blog software so I apologize for the delay in posting as of late. Looks like my account is up and running again and the hackers have given up trying to take over the iheart acount. Phew!

Many of you have been sending me lots of little notes of congrats and such about our impending bundle of “baby ninja” joy. Thanks to everyone for all your kind words; we couldn’t feel more elated and blessed…and YES…while this social space won’t change all together an occasional baby’s room, family day out and “wee-one” centric post might be in the future…i’m just sayin.

The other day we were out and about at Crocker Park and noted a new sweet spot that hadn’t been there before, Lulu’s Candy Jar. It was is the perfect spot to dodge the cold temps and gloomy winter weather if you are out that way. They offer made to order flavored popcorn, rows and rows of jelly beans, every flavor of fruit slice and so many novelties it’s hard to even mention them. I was particularly drawn to the back interior wall wallpaper of graphic candy jars..too cute for words.

With all this snow and the kiddos home from school (& many parents starting to go crazy!) I thought you might like an excuse for a sugar high and a trip to Westlake to explore this new sweet store. Check it out.

Touch base with you all real soon! Cheers.
