Coffee and (lack of) sleep and vintage and assorted happenings!

Hi, lovelies! It’s been a busy couple of weeks around here. I’ve been filling orders for my Etsy shop, getting ready to become a vendor on GreenByUSA, and prepping for the Fall line coming to the Nakate website this weekend. And, rumor has it I’ll have an article in the next issue of Babiekins Magazine!

The most exhausting thing lately has been getting back into the swing of two wake-ups per night with Aveline. She’s decided two bottom teeth aren’t enough, and put in an order for two more. But there’s a silver lining. I’ve upped my cuppa intake from 1/3 coffee + 2/3 decaf to straight-up half-caff. What a cute little chomper Aveline will be with four bottom teeth and none on top ;-)

I also wanted to stop in today to share a fun vintage find with you — the Etsy shop Pomp and Pride. My new friend Ariel (a fellow displaced Northern Californian!) has been selling pretty vintage dresses from her DC home for 6 months now. In celebration of this “half-iversary”, she’s offering 50% off all orders between $20 and $150.

Here are a couple of pretties from her shop…
