This week has been insanity. I’m heavily feeling the pressure to find my wedding dress asap per what everyone has been telling me for ordering lead time, made even more hectic by how we’re leaving for Copenhagen next week and I’m trying to get ahead on work and tie up loose ends before we go, AND our engagement shoot is this weekend and I still need an outfit, aah! These are all good things, exciting and fun, I’m grateful for the stress over good memories to be made and happy life moments. For real though, I’ll be scrambling this weekend to find a dress for our engagement shoot- why are dresses so hard to shop for? Always?? Read More
Black and white are my obvious favorite colors, but let’s say those don’t count- my top choice then would be green. I have a very long term love with green and more recently have been reminded of that from noticing it extra, everywhere. Per usual, this tends to happen with whatever the Pantone color of the year is, which naturally makes its way into interiors and then I put together a post like this talking about how I’m seeing it all over. More specifically, sage green is catching my fancy, and by that I mean green with gray undertones. Some of these examples lean a little more mint, but the point is, I’m digging those soft greens that could almost be treated like neutrals. Are you into it? Read More
Although I’ve gotten a lot better about this, I’ve always had a generally hard time letting go of packaging because it would feel so wasteful. Even if I didn’t know what I’d reuse it for, I’d like to trust that a purpose would soon be realized to justify keeping it, which is why I’m all for a good upcycle or repurposing focused DIY- feels like I’m revisiting where I began with this blog.
The challenge I like to give myself is to make it not so obvious that it’s an upcycle, that the project looks too cute to have once been plastic lotion bottles, oh but that’s actually what these wall pocket organizers used to be! I partnered with Aveeno® for Earth Month to share about recycling, saving plastic, and making these organizers with your bottles once you’ve used up all the product so we can be guilt-free about where all that plastic is going.

HOME- Linen bedsheets
I splurged on new linen sheets and justified them as an early birthday gift to myself AND I don’t regret it at all. You already know how deeply I love linen bedding, wrinkles and all, but this blush color put me over the edge. I haven’t come across anything else like this unique color in bedding. It’s a soft, grayish blush that’s subtle but still brings in color and confirms that I continue to love blush very much. Besides that, they’re so so comfortable and feel fresh every time I get in (aaaah, linen.) This is my first time trying Parachute Home and so far it’s living up to the positive recommendations. These, and my Brooklinen sets, are my absolute favorite bedding that I’ve tried, but I’d love to get my hands on more linen!
I went through 36 hard-boiled eggs to figure out this DIY so that you wouldn’t have to! Lots of egg salad around here these days (I love egg salad). The hard part was deciding on the design and practicing the application of it, which now that we’re past that it’s actually a very, very easy thing to do. Read More
I don’t mean by the title that these items are specifically suited for Spring, but rather these are the decor items I like right now and right now it’s Spring. Actually it could mean both, so really I didn’t need to clarify anything. Where am I going with this??
I always prefer a neutral color palette and this palette is on the lighter side, so in that sense we can say these items are light and bright and match nicely with the sunnier days to come. Another thing they have in common is that they’re all from H&M Home. I am an immense super fan of this brand and how so many of their offerings cater to modern, minimal, and Scandinavian design. The prices are generally a steal and I’m constantly browsing their new arrivals. This is the result of my most recent browsing binge. Read More
