Year One.

J for Jamie Blog | Wedding

Oh my goodness, it’s our official 1 year wedding anniversary! I can’t believe the time has flown by so fast. I must admit, I still suffer from post-wedding sadness at times. I wish we could relive our wedding every weekend! Being married to Chris is a lot like when we were dating but it actually feels so much more special now. We are officially in this together, figuring everything as a team. Of course there are the occasional off days and disagreements but going through those with someone I care infinitely about makes it worth it. Our next big adventure is our official honeymoon trip/anniversary trip to Europe and I can’t wait to travel around my favorite cities, and explore new ones, with my husband. Happy first year of amazing memories to my handsome husband! See more photos from our magical wedding on Instagram by searching #chrisheartsjamie.

Brit + Co-Op Party

Posted By Jamie Wong >>> 0 Comments

J for Jamie Blog | Brit + Co-Op

I was so thrilled to participate in the exclusive Brit + Co-Op DIY party this summer. Brit + Co. sent me 11 Brit Kits and I invited 10 of my fabulous and crafty friends over to spend the afternoon DIY-ing. We embroidered watch bands from Timex with the embroidery thread, needles and thread that came in the kits. Luckily I had a ton of unused embroidery thread for my guests to choose from as well. To eat, I served fig and prosciutto croissant sandwiches, Caprese pasta salad, watermelon and feta and a charcuterie board. To drink we had white wine sangria and for dessert, chocolate pot de cremes and homemade red velvet bundt cakes from my friend Katie.  As you know, I love throwing parties so I had to go all out for this one. It was such a relaxing day crafting outside, eating delicious food and hanging out with some of my favorite people. If you’re interested in becoming a host for a Brit + Co-Op Party, apply here!

J for Jamie Blog | Hong Kong by Liz

My cousin Liz lives and works in Hong Kong and despite the distance, we’ve remained really close. She was one of the first to hear about my Blog Party idea and was so supportive. Together, we’ve thought up so many ideas and projects together that I can’t wait to plan with her. Although Chris and I are planning a trip to Europe this year, we’ve already talked about going to Asia next year so we can visit Liz. I was so surprised when I read Liz’s latest blog post that was dedicated to me! Check it out for a visual tour of her eccentric and adorable neighborhood, Star Street Precinct, in Hong Kong. I wish we could get over there sooner but for now, I’ll live vicariously through her blog and her Instagram. Thanks so much for the post Liz, love you!

Ilan dei Venice, Los Angeles

J for Jamie Blog | Ilan dei Venice

Lately when we visit Los Angeles, it feels like we never have enough time. Before heading out of town, we visited my favorite street, Abbott Kinney and had coffee with my friend Hailee. While strolling around the neighborhood, Chris and I found this great store, Ilan dei Venice. I love that the store is set up in multiple shipping containers and is both indoor and outdoor. They have tons of amazing stuff for the home and products from local LA designers. It was hard to refrain from buying everything; I can’t wait to go back after we buy our own home to decorate.

A Frozen Birthday Party

Posted By Jamie Wong >>> 0 Comments

J for Jamie Blog | Frozen Birthday Party

My little cousin, Christine, recently had a Frozen themed 6th birthday party and it was too cute not to share. As are most kids at the moment, she is obsessed with the movie and so are all her friends. Her mom planned a fun girl’s only Frozen party at a kids’ art studio (I was lucky enough to be invited). They learned how to paint Elsa’s castle, complete with glitter and snowflakes. Then they had pizza and Frozen-themed snacks; and of course, a blue Frozen birthday cake. Wasn’t this just the cutest party ever?

What I wore to Blog Her

J for Jamie Blog | Blog Her '14 Outifts

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you know that I recently attended my first Blog Her ’14 in San Jose. As with most things I do, what I was going to wear was important to me. I was going to represent me, my brand and Blog Party so I wanted to look stylish and professional. However, I didn’t know how much walking there was going to be or if it was going to be hot or cold so I wanted to also be comfortable. I went more casual the first two days and saved my new Ted Baker dress for the last day. I also toted around my Ona camera bag which fit my iPad, notebook and makeup perfectly. Tell me, what would you wear to a blog conference or networking event?

Chris’ Un-Birthday

J for Jamie Blog | Chris' 33rd Birthday

Just some scenes from Chris’ un-birthday in July. He always insists on ignoring it’s his birthday but I can’t help myself. We had a small gathering for drinks and dinner in Mountain View at Steins Beer Garden. I’m pretty sure he was glad we had dinner and his lovely friends were happy to celebrate with us. Sorry Chris, you’re stuck with me which means many more birthdays!

Santa Cruz + Paddleboarding

Posted By Jamie Wong >>> 2 Comments

J for Jamie Blog | Santa Cruz

One thing that is so great about Northern California is that pretty much anywhere you live, you’re in some proximity to the beach. Santa Cruz is about 30 minutes away from where we live. Our friends invited us to go paddle boarding one weekend which was perfect for the hot summer weather we’ve been having. At first I was terrified of falling in the water but after paddling straight into a docked boat and falling in, it wasn’t so scary. Chris and I both love it now and can’t wait to go again. I’m so glad we live such a short drive away from this beautiful part of California! What have you been up to this summer?

C + J Wedding Present

J for Jamie Blog | Wedding Present

My very good friend Hailee, from Cuckoo’s Nest West, recently gave me this incredibly thoughtful wedding present. She themed it around our upcoming travels to Europe and included things like handmade C+J postcards, a travel journal, stamps and even a polaroid camera and extra film. Hailee is the type of friend that always remembers your birthday and sends the best snail mail. Everything she does has her personal creative touch. Hailee and I met in college through our sorority and we have some amazing memories together. I feel so lucky to have her as a friend and I can’t wait to bring all these goodies with us on our big trip later this year.

Hailee and her fiancee Jake also made us this video using the little tag we had on our wedding invites. They took it all around San Francisco the morning of our wedding. I just love it and have watched it a million times. Enjoy!
