Cate Mezyk - February 10, 2014

I’m so excited to bring you this giveaway today, because I’ve known Lindsey for a long time. We go back to our college days, when we both pledged Alpha Delta Pi. (here we are, heading out to celebrate Lindsey’s upcoming wedding with some of our sorority sisters) Lindsey was pretty much the most beautiful woman on campus. We used to joke that we’d follow behind …

Serenade Me

Cate Mezyk - October 25, 2013

Melanie Nelson started making her mittens four years ago out of recycled sweaters, and just by word of mouth marketing, sold out of every pair each year. She’s recently decided to make things official, and Mimi’s Mittens and More was born. Adding circle scarves to the mix was her next move, and she’ll have both products on hand for you at our upcoming Pop Up …

And yes, though yesterday I showed you a super zoomed in shot of my wrinkles, it doesn’t mean …

Being Braver

Cate Mezyk - August 29, 2013

This post just may be one of the bravest I’ve written. Even more than when I posted a pic of myself in a bikini. I’ve shared my fertility struggles, and my grief. So why does this post stand out to me? Here’s the thing… I’m a mostly confident person. It’s taken me a long time to get to the point where I can honestly say …

Wild About You

Cate Mezyk - August 16, 2013

There are few things in life that I love more than take a relaxing bath or a super long shower. With three kids banging on the bathroom door, these are luxuries I don’t indulge in as often as I would like, but oh, how I do love to get all steamy under a hot stream of water with some really great bath products. One thing …
