Wow. Just WOW.

Last night’s book launch at West Elm Fenway seriously blew my mind.  Naturally, I was so nervous but the whole event so far exceeded my expectations, which anyone who knows me knows is hard to do.  The team at West Elm and Moxie Agency made it the most perfect event I could have asked for. There are official pics coming soon but here are some instagrams of the night!

This moment was one many “Carrie Bradshaw” moments I had. I still feel like it was a dream…. did that actually happen?

Andrew also had some of his own Carrie Bradshaw moments….


Stacks of books at West Elm– we sold out of books within 35 minutes of the official party start- I’m so sorry for those who came and couldn’t get one- but I’m glad I had bookplates to sign for you!!!


Yummy, yummy food and cocktails- and some custom napkins to coordinate with the book, of course. :)

I woke up this morning with about 50 of these in my bag- apparently I turn into a real kleptomaniac when pumped up on adrenaline and wine.

The signature drink with grapefruit, prosecco, elderflower liqueur and rosemary. It was yum.

OK, this was the craziest part. I signed books for over TWO HOURS!  People waited SO long – I seriously could not believe it!


And the ladies turned it OUT in stripes and leopard. Apparently there was even a drinking game happening with leopard print. :) Love it!


Michale J. Lee, the photographer who shot the cover and a hefty portion of the book- so fun to toast those who worked so hard on this project with me!

Thank you SO much to everyone. I am still floating.  I can’t wait to meet more of you on tour!!!

P.S. I was freaking out about what to wear, of course, and ended up going super simple in an AD dress, Valentino shoes (mine are from last year but these are the current ones), earrings from Cusp and a cuff from Kendra Scott.
