4 Must-Read Summer Beach Reads

I’ll admit, I don’t have much time to read these days, but it’s one of my favorite things to do. I pick up books at local bookstores all the time in SF or order ones that look appealing on Amazon Prime, so I keep a constant stockpile of books I want to crack open on my desk.

Here are four that I’m loving this summer (that would all make great summer beach reads).

New Business Cards From Moo

I’m a huge fan of paper products, including stationery and business cards. I’m currently re-designing Dear Serendipity (I can’t wait to show you guys!) and because I’ve spent so many long nights working on the new site, I rewarded myself with these great new business cards from Moo.

My favorite things about Moo’s cards: their branding is unreal (how cute is this case they come in?!), they’re so inexpensive, and the quality/paper thickness is so expensive feeling. Not sponsored, just the truth!

Check out Moo and all of their business cards here — I got this design. Happy shopping!

[VIDEO] Packing Tips For a Weekend Getaway

I’m heading off to NYC this morning bright and early (hi, 7 AM flight) for a girls weekend and then a work trip. I’m gone for five days, and I get asked all of the time what I pack for these trips, so I thought I would document my process in a silly little video. Be prepared: there is wine, a lot of OCD tendencies and some actually good packing tips to come. Check out the video below!
