Summer Hues

Summer Hues

Lately, I've been all about the neutral nail, but adding a fun pop of color on my toes. Essie just unleashed their inner beach goddess with their amazing Summer 2015 collection inspired by endless Summer fun. It looks like I may have to change my nail game, because these colors rock.
The palette gets everyone into the groove with an array of fabulous shades. Pair your favorite Summer shade with some matching accessories for the ultimate look.

According to Essie, it's a hue that is all things "Pristine and pretty. Sparkling and crisp. Infused with subtle shimmer, this radiant white is a lovely luxe getaway from the everyday." Grab this watch and these sandals for the ultimate look.

Essie recommends this shade as "totally. chill. out. cold and refreshing. This pretty, frozen cream pistachio color sends shivers down your spine." Complete your outfit with this Iphone case and dazzling pouch.

Essie says it's "sweet. gorgeous. hot. This sun-ripe peach tempts every sense with freshly-picked beauty." Beauty goes along way especially with these earrings and crossbody.

Essie turns up the heat with this hue and claims "when the sun sinks low, kick off the evening in the height of cool: an opulent sneaker and this vibrant crimson red." Pair it with these kicks and earrings.

Something borrowed and definitely something blue - a color for every Summer bride. Essie states it's "soft and inviting, nothing says Summer on the ocean like this sugar-sweet atlantic blue that stretches on and on." Match your look with these ballerina flats and statement necklace.

Essie asks, are you "ready to suit up? Snap up Summer's chicest accessories - a surfboard and this immersive marine blue - and hit the waves in style. And if surfing isn't your sport rock the shade in style with this awesome shades and fantastic bucket bag.

Cape Cub

It was definitely a very, very lazy Sunday. I ran 13.1 miles at the Brooklyn Half on Saturday, so I had ever reason to kick my feet up and relax post race. There's nothing I love more after running some serious mileage, than to crawl up in bed and indulge in either a great book, watch trashy television or spend hours listening to infectious indie tunes. 

I certainly did a little of each this weekend especially the latter. I stumbled across a band called Cape Cub from the North East, UK, and my heart instantly melted. Their latest single "Swim" is simultaneously somber and up-lifting. A tune that was perfect for sore muscles and my runner's high. Take a listen below and see for yourself.

Flamingo Frenzy

Flamingo Frenzy

Last year, cat couture was everywhere. Cat lover's had rejoiced because their favorite feline was on everything and I mean everything. Even if you weren't a fan of the adorable furry creature, you somehow embraced the trend. This Summer, the fashion world is embracing a new animal and it is the flamingo. The long-legged vibrant pink bird has taken flight as the new cult favorite. It seems the whimsical bird is popping up on everything from tumbler glasses to bed linens and statement sneakers. The above finds are not only fun, but completely adorable and the perfect piece for the warm weather months ahead.

1. Inflatable flamingo's are migrating to unexpected places like your pool and/or lake house.

2. A tropical pink flamingo and palm tree glass wine stoppers are great gifts for those friends who own a vacation home.

3. Head on over to Ikea and snag these adorable flamingo tumbler glasses.

Vanic x Machineheart

With temperatures rising, it seems we have skipped Spring entirely and are headed straight into Summer. Which means, bring on the Summer jams! Canadian producer Vanic and up-and-comer's Machineheart have teamed up for a mix filled with abundant layers of bright sunny synths. A song definitely worthy to add to your Summer playlist immediately.

Expect to hear big things from Machineheart this Summer, as they just wrapped up recording their debut album. Before their debut drops, they'll be touring the states on the Summer festival circuit. If the below jam Circles is any indication of what is to come from these newcomers, then I'm already excited. Check it out below and see for yourself.

A New Attitude

When I started creating this blog over two and a half years ago, it took months to perfect my logo and layout before I was ready to hit the launch button. Garrett and I spent countless hours fine tuning every last detail. I thought my logo would be around for forever, which is why it came as quite a shock when he proposed an idea to re-do my logo a few months ago.

We've been researching, brainstorming, sketching, designing, and re-designing since the beginning of February. A lot of heart and way too many back and forth emails went into this project. There were numerous ideas that got left on the cutting room floor, but all and all, I am pretty excited and overly thankful of the final product.

Most brands make logo changes to stay top of mind, fresh and relevant. Therefore a logo re-do of Pewter and Puddles was not only necessary, but well needed in 2015. It's a fresh start to Summer and a fresh start to a whole slew of exciting posts and content ahead.

Would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section. Enjoy!

Hazel English

The weather was absolute perfect this weekend. Escaping to Philadelphia, surrounding myself with good friends, and laying out in the sun is just what this girl needed. With weekends like these, it got me excited about breezy summer days riding my bike in Central Park and listening to folk sounds while daydreaming.

Enter Hazel Grace, she personifies my weekend and so much more. Never Going Home, is summery, hazy, wistful, dreamy and nostalgic all in one. Take a spin for yourself below and start daydreaming. You'll be glad you placed play. Enjoy.
