Bordentown, NJ

One of the things I love about Jersey is that each town is rich in history. And if we’re lucky, some of its charm is preserved in a downtown area bustling with small businesses complete with yummy eateries and quaint shops. I was there this past Sunday for some family festivities and plan to go back to explore a bit. Here are a few snapshots with my crazy little Goddaughter. All I wanted was one picture with her and it took about 20 takes. Here’s a summary:

I love this chickadee! Brunch & sweet treats are next on the agenda for this cozy NJ town.

 

Flea Market: Hells Kitchen

This past Sunday I stopped by the Hells Kitchen Flea Market during a little Sunday Funday in the city. Unfortunately, due to what I’m assuming is the seasonal lull, there was much left to be desired. It’s just too cold for most vendors to be out there so it’s probably best to check it out during the summer. There’s a bunch more pics I’ve got in store from the day but more on that later. In the meantime, there are always interesting things to take pictures of at a flea market. I think it’s often the coolest backdrop being surrounded by the quirky, random, and antique.

Must-have Monday: Knits

Between the snow, ice, and wind chill factor, the cold winter is back with a vengeance this year. If you’re like me and don’t mind the drastic dip in temperature, then you know inclement weather is something you kind of just make the best of. My fix this season? Rachel’s Knit Knacks. She’s made all kinds of awesome to keep the warmth cute.

I love that Rachel makes these by hand and offers all her styles in custom colors. Love so much I bought a turban myself. That’s me with Gale from Nuda!

Boutique: E. Tittlemouse & Co.

The recent migration of new residents flocking to Jersey City has brought lots of interesting developments to the city. Often dubbed “the 6th borough”, my hometown is steadily coming out of its shadow of the NYC limelight. Among these sprouting local establishments is E. Tittlemouse & Co. and it has easily become one of my new favorite boutiques offering up thrifted designer pieces, carefully curated by Napoleon, the dapperest nice guy you’ll ever meet.

Exclusively designed for us, the lovely Gale – metalsmith extraordinaire – works with our favorite materials: leather, mixed metals, stones, and crystals. She does custom pieces too – her bridal pieces are incredibly romantic and dreamy. I’ve already reached out to her about a custom ring…SO excited.
