Blogger Crush: Laura from Smith & Ratliff

Ay yi yi. It has been an awful long time since I've posted a blogger crush. But we have a good one today, and if that weren't enough blogger crush features now have an updated look, to boot. Things are exciting around here that's for sure. So I meet Laura from Smith & Ratliff back in October because she was one of the guests at the NYC bloggers dessert party that was at my apartment. I instantly liked her. She has a good, relaxed energy and she's one of those people you are immediately comfortable with. Plus, she brought this amazing pine nut star anise pie, which incidentally ended up being voted the favorite dessert of the afternoon. So it should come as no surprise that Laura is one half of the gorgeous blog Smith & Ratliff. The blog is a joint venture that Laura writes with her boyfriend Ryan. It beautifully documents their life in the West Village (represent!) and is a love letter to all of their favorite things; food, art, New York, cocktails and travel. It oozes coolness and style and you will find yourself wishing you could give their life a spin for a few days. But since that seems rather impossible, reading their badass blog will have to do. For now. A big thanks to Laura for stopping by to play and I hope to bump into you at a West Village coffee shop soon. xoxo
