VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2017 - #POETRYFAIL

VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2017 - #POETRYFAIL

Who's pumped for Valentine's?!!! I know some roll their eyes at the thought of V-Day but I love this time of year, except for the cold weather in NYC. I'm thinking about flowers and color palettes bursting with red and pink and that simply warms my heart as I'm currently buried under 10 feet of snow. 

Last year I shared my sentiments so I won't share again but if you'd like to get my take on Valentine's or just see my old guide, head over here to do so. 

Now without further ado, let's jump into this year's round up with my #poetryfail that highlights the theme of each board in the most ridiculous manner. Enjoy & have a wonderful weekend filled with love!

KRYSTLE'S VINTAGE THIRTY - PART 1

KRYSTLE'S VINTAGE THIRTY - PART 1

Yaaasssssss!!!! I turned 30 this month and had a blast doing so. I planned on sharing this post sooner but between all the birthday celebrations and work, I had no time to do so until now.

Honestly, I'm super tired and have a ton of work to complete for LinkedIn, and some things to tend to for Mom so I'll keep this post short and sweet on the words and heavy on the images. I have another piece I want to share with you but will do so when I'm not trying to do 100 things at once. 

Now you're probably wondering why Krystle's Vintage Thirty, so let me explain. If you couldn't tell, I LOVE VINTAGE. Now besides my deep love, something usually becomes vintage after about 25 years, so I waited 5 more years after turning 25 to ensure I was in the clear. I don't actually think this refers to people but hey, it's my birthday and I make my own rules, damn it! Now even a Vintage Thirty wouldn't be complete without tropical flavor, after all my name is Krystle DeSantos! Now let's dive into some of the images from my 30th birthday weekend.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
On all her breezes borne
Earth yields no scents like those;
But he, that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.

HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS IN SOHO

HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS IN SOHO

A few weeks prior to Christmas (can you believe it's already over?), I ventured to my old stomping ground in SoHo. I was finally able to visited Society Social's, 73 Spring Shop popup after not being able to make it the last 2 years. I also did a bit of vintage shopping, thrifting and eating as well and wanted to share a few of the photos with you. I'm feeling a little lazy today, so I'm not going to write much.

I am off from work and should only be watching classic movies and eating ice cream but with all the holiday festivities, I didn't get a chance to share the images with you, especially those of the pop-up shop. Do enjoy and now back to Move Over, Darling and ginger ice cream (I made myself).
