Au Revoir!

We began Coveiter over a year ago with a goal to offer fresh, inspiring ideas for breathing sophistication into your daily life. We've done our very best to fulfill this mission with interesting posts, inspiring interviews, creative ideas, exclusive discounts and even fabulous giveaways. We hope that you have enjoyed the past months as much as we have!

As we've grown with the blog, it has gotten harder for us to make time to converge on new ideas and implement the quality posts you fabulous readers deserve. For this reason, we made the tough decision to close the virtual doors of Coveiter. But don't worry, the blog will remain up for you to reference and visit as you desire. And most importantly you will be able to follow us separately as we journey on to new and ever exciting projects.

While we will not be updating Coveiter any longer, we do hope that you–our amazing, supportive and inspiring readers–will bookmark our new sites and continue to meet with us virtually as you've so wonderfully done in the past. It is your comments, links, emails and support that truly make blogging worthwhile.

Please follow us:
Lindsey at A GreatFull Day
Julie at Duet Letterpress

Thank you for your love and support.

Au Revoir,
Lindsey and Julie

Cheers to the Weekend!

Hope everyone has lots of fun weekend plans. I'm thinking trying this refreshing beverage may need to fit into my schedule. What a totally interesting combination. My taste buds are curious! Cheers to the weekend!

Long Live Polaroid

I don't think instant photos will ever die. They are just too much fun! Case in point = Polaroid TWO. The technology of the digital age coupled with the benefits of instant gratification. What a nice marriage!

Ruffles + Waves

I need a new suit and these ruffly ones have definitely caught my eye. Looks like I need a little trip to J.Crew.

Summer Scent

Remember how I was looking for a new scent last summer? Well, I finally found one. It's light. It's fresh. It's a wonderful scent for summer. It's called Éclat d'Arpège by Lanvin and I love it.

Keys To My Heart

What lady doesn't love the thought of receiving anything in a that signature blue know the one! Tiffany and Company has a new key collection. I've always loved and (semi)collected keys so they are definitely a hit with me. Yep the hubs can add one of these to my wish list.


I spotted these pieces at IKEA this weekend. Love the dark gray color + the lines of the collection.

Summer Sandals

Old Navy has a whole slew of cute + inexpensive sandals for summer. And I'm loving them.

Berry Tasty

I can't get enough of strawberries at this time of year. Yum! In Martha Stewart Living this month, she had a recipe that surely quenched my desire for berries--Strawberry Shortcake Cookies. They were super yummy and quick and easy too. Add a dollop of whip cream and you're set!

Antique Mystique

While looking for a price comparison for an antique seed cabinet I spotted on Craigslist, I discovered a treasure trove of antique + vintage goodness via Antique Mystique. Here are a few pieces in particular that caught my eye.

Happy Hair Days

Let me give you a little bit of hair history...I've always had uber thick hair. And by thick I mean when my mom would try to put my hair in a ponytail as a child she couldn't even get the rubberband to wrap twice! Fast forward to now and my hair has thinned some but I've always been doomed with looooong blow-drying sessions.

Well my buddy over at Sally Beauty Supplies saved the day a few weeks ago when she sent me a Tool Science Ceramic Hair Dryer. That night my life changed a bit! My hair drying time went from 40 minutes to 10. And the underside of my hair is totally dry too! Using a round brush I'm often able to leave my Chi turned off too! Oh and let me mention the shiny, smooth hair benefits too. I haven't switched shampoo since I started using this dryer and the first time I used it I noticed how much softer and smoother my hair is!

So yea, I'm sold! The dryer runs about $60 but it is SO worth it for all the time I'm saving. And my hair looks and feels great too so I'm just loving it. I hadn't been to Sally Beauty Supply since high school when I was searching for dance recital supplies but this gadget has me thinking they could be a girl's best friend!

Healing Hunter

Faithful readers may remember a post from last year about a sweet child named Hunter. Little Hunter has been battling Leukemia for months and just when he and his family saw light at the end of the tunnel via a bone marrow transplant news of more Leukemia has left them worrying again.

Just looking in the eyes of this precious child makes me long for peace and hope for him and his family. I can't imagine the pain and struggle each day brings for his parents having to see their baby in such a way. PLEASE dear readers keep Hunter in your thoughts and prayers as he wages this newest battle. Read more here and spread the word. The BEST medicine and most powerful healing can come through prayer. Hunter, I'm rooting for you...beat this beast, I know you can!

Summer Skin

I got my hands on a Schick Intuition razor and gave a try. After all smooth, silky (and hairless, ahem) legs are a must have summer accessory. I love this little gadget! It left my legs just as I'd hoped. I liked how the razor was substantial enough to not slip and slide in the shower. The built skin conditioner (it's in the cartridge!) really ups the smoothness and saves you a little dough as you won't have to buy shaving gel ever again. If you're ready to enjoy your summer and show off your legs then be sure to grab one of my new favorite razors.

Dreaming of Green

To satisfy my terrarium love I currently have a petite fern under a cloche. It is cute but not the "real" thing. After my post a while back I've become quite enamored with these green cuties. I may attempt to make my own with a little help from this book. Has anyone made their own terrarium? Read this book?

Ginko Papers

These are erasers. Seriously. They are. Crazy right? I spotted them at Ginko Papers, a shop that specializes in Japanese stationery. I had such a fun time going through their website and smiled when I spotted these little erasers.


Such lovely pieces from CLIO. I had quite the time picking my favorites. There are so many!
