A few of my favorite things during the month of May:
Copenhagen got on to my travel list once I started seeing that a lot of my favorite design brands reside here. You know this because most of the home decor and interiors I share on this blog is either from or inspired by Danish design! It only took two seconds of Googling to see that I also had to come for the architecture- this is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited. Further research revealed other very cool things, like how it’s rated the happiest city in the world, it’s the world’s greenest city, and it has the highest density of Michelin Star restaurants than any other city in the world. Those are some major worldly accolades and in short, you have to visit Copenhagen.
I’ve had two misty-eyed moments so far during our wedding planning. The first was when I found my wedding dress, and it was largely because one of my friends who was there with me started tearing up (aww) but yes I love my dress and it was the first time this whole thing felt very real! The second time was when I received our save the dates. Totally unexpected to get emotional, but made sense because it was another very real reminder that this wedding is actually happening, and the excitement keeps growing. Read More
SO good to be home after being out this week for a wedding in Chicago and a meeting in New York. I’m totally satiated on travel and ready to not travel anywhere for a while- didn’t think I’d ever say that! Craving schedule, regular sleep, and lots and lots of green juice. Read More
One of the things I look forward to when I become a mom is getting treated to Mother’s Day brunch. A strangely specific aspiration, yes, but everyone agrees it’s an awesome occasion, yes? I also love the idea of moms celebrating each other together, or putting on an event to show appreciation to all the moms you know. On that note, nothing makes a celebration extra special like a pretty table setting, and it’s fairly simple to put together, too. Inspired by Spring and honoring moms with brunch, I’ve partnered with Parachute to feature their new linen tabletop collection and share some tips on styling it all together. Read More
This DIY takes me back to when I first started DIY-ing. My favorite thing to do, and still what I consider the most gratifying type of DIY, was to take something old and make it new. In most cases, all it would take is a fresh paint job. It still gets me how some spray paint is enough to give life back to things that would otherwise go unloved, and I’ve partnered with Rust-Oleum to do exactly that with a couple of forgotten pieces I dug out of the storage closet.
