My bridesmaids threw me the most beautiful shower ever! I'm still so excited thinking about all of the thoughtful details that went into making the day so special. Lazyjack Press is obviously a men's accessories brand, but I do love sharing some exciting personal moments (and milestones) with you all!
Can't even imagine competing with Ladyhattan's post of the shower - especially since she included my dating rules I gave her before she married Prince Erik!
Thank you to my ladies!!

It doesn't need to be Cinco de Mayo for us to enjoy a marg! This recipe is one I've been making recently on Sunday nights - definitely a cure for the Sunday blues! Also, this recipe calls for multiple veggies so it's a great way to knock out those pesky veggie servings. #amiright? It's definitely a winning cocktail that has a little bite – perfect for Cinco de Mayo and beyond!
What You'll Need (Recipe serves uno)
What To Do:
I just got back from an amazing trip to Italy. While I was there, I visited the mill where the ties are made. I knew making ties wasn't the easiest thing, but seeing the process really made me appreciate every little detail that goes into making them from beginning to end.
I'm particularly excited about our newest design: Camel Toe!
This one has been rolling around inside of my head for some time – I just couldn't quite picture the exact design. On my last Disney trip, I was on the ride, "It's a Small World" and there a couple of animatronics I've loved since I was a kid and always look for – one of them is a pink, furry camel with beautiful eyelashes (another favorite is the hula dancers in Hawaii – love them!) As soon as I saw the pink camel and its expression – I knew exactly what I wanted the tie to look like.
Now, when you have a tie called "Camel Toe," you have to try extra hard to make the design elegant in order to balance out the extra cheeky name. Plus, who doesn't love a critter tie? Below is my first sketch of the camel. As you can see, the eyelashes followed me back from Disney.
The finished tie came from Italy a few days ago and I just can't stop looking at it! I can't wait to be at a pop up or trade show and see people laugh when I tell them the name of the seemingly innocent camel tie is "Camel Toe" – though at this point, I don't think anyone should be *too* surprised!
It's almost wedding season, which means one thing: ample opportunities to dust off your tux and that pre-tied black bow tie that you thinkkkk may be silk or was at some point in its last life. Time to put on your wedding uniform that looks just like everyone else's.
Enter Lazyjack Press. Shaking up weddings and formal events and making them fun again! Ladies shouldn't be the only one's excited about what they're wearing at an event.
My sorority sister, Whitney, who is the Queen of Prep (no, really – she is!) first suggested yearsss ago that I look into making cummerbunds. I didn't really think much about it because the mill in Italy was sort of confused by the whole thing. But years later, with many a request later, I persisted and am so proud of the finished product. The cummerbund is our signature Re-Rack pattern (red party cups) on the same 21 momme Italian silk just like our ties and it is fabulous, if I do say so myself!
What's nice about the cummerbund is that you have options. It pairs with either of our reversible Mullet bow ties in blue or pink– so the wearer can choose either a solid bow tie with the party cups peeking out or obviously, full party cup mode. Of course, there's always just the Re-Rack bow tie – a classic, but winning combination.
So, crack open that beer and accessorize your way to a wild time!
Ps. We'd love to see your wedding looks so please send us picts :)
