Get Fresh with Minted


Did you know that Minted, the folks behind the awesome save the dates and cards also do art prints and gifts? I had no idea. As a new homeowner I’ve been spending many a day searching for awesome décor for my home. Plus I have a long list of every type of party I want to have which will obviously mean invites and of course a “We’ve Moved” announcement.

I absolutely love this print of purple irises. The lovely purple iris is the flower of Delta Phi Epsilon which is my sorority. This print would be perfect in my new office or dining room. I’m painting the dining room a rich purple and my office a medium grey.

Now…. these 2 are my absolute favorite prints. I am a Jersey Girl born and raised. Us Jersey Girls are very proud of where we came from so of course these two prints are a must for my home. I especially love this first one as you are able to incorporate your own photos into it in the shape of your state. How cute is this?

Last but not least they have an amazing assortment of cards, save the dates, thank you’s, the list goes on. With all the party ideas I have for our new home I will need a ton. First things first we will need to send announcements to everyone that we have moved. I’m still debating if I want to put a photo of our house on the announcement or not or just have everyone see it for the first time when the come over.


Oh I almost forgot… anyone can submit their art to be used on Minted. How cool is that?

Swing over to the Minted site and tell me which items are a must for you. Post your comments below.

InterContinental Miami


When I was in college I was in Delta Phi Epsilon. A few months ago I was asked to sit on the International Governing Board for Delta Phi Epsilon. Earlier this month my husband and I flew out to Miami to attend the 2012 Delta Phi Epsilon Convention being held at the InterContinental Miami.


The moment we arrived to the moment we left nothing was less than amazing. We walked in to the beautiful lobby and checked in at the front desk. To our surprise we had a suite with Club Lounge access.

The suite was incredible! All I kept saying was why would anyone stay anywhere else. The suite had a his and hers bathroom as well as his and hers closets, a living room, foyer and a large bedroom. Not to mention a gorgeous view of the Biscayne Bay.


The staff was incredible helpful at the front desk, concierge, the pool area, restaurants, I mean everyone. I even had the opportunity to meet the Marketing & Communications Manager at the hotel. I was tweeting the whole time I was there and we ended up meeting up. Ahh I love social media!


So I mentioned we had a suite but what is the Club Lounge access you ask? We had complimentary breakfast every day, complimentary tea time as well as a happy hour. The staff in the lounge were very helpful when asking their opinions on what to do and where to eat in the area.

The pool was beautiful and overlooked the bay. The outdoor area was very well maintained and the bartenders outside made a mean mojito.


I heard through the grapevine that they are working on some renovations and will be showcasing them in the fall. I can’t wait to return. I can’t imagine it getting better than it already is.
