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.
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.
Extra Large Triangle Fringe Scarf Shawl / Long Infinity Scarf / Extra Thick Infinity Scarf Cowl / Chunky Twisted Knit Turban / Double Pom Pom Hat
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!
Bundle up everyone!

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.
Love the jean selection display.
Fell in love with these boots!
Jewelry by local designers, like Sewbie’s very own NUDA!
Visit our friends over at E. Tittlemouse & Co. and tell ’em Sewbie said hi!
