Fall Favorites

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

It’s happened and I’m ready. I watched the first few leaves fall from the sycamore in front of my house in the cool morning mist, and I couldn’t stop thinking about pumpkin spice lattes and cable knit sweaters and I’m finally ready to welcome fall.

I rounded up a group of furnishings and accessories new for fall from favorite retailers and online shops – it’s a collection of all things warm and wonderful this autumn. fall home decor picks

Scenes from Southern California

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Hey all, I had a crazy cool weekend and a mini getaway to the southern part of my state.  For anyone who hasn’t visited California yet, the South and the North are like night and day.  I don’t get down south as often as I like to, but it’s such a fun place to visit.  Palm trees, beaches, breezy tropical cocktails, fish tacos, and plenty of things to see and do.  It was my cousin’s baby shower but also an opportunity to hang out with family and friends, even if just for a 36 hours.

I met up with my blog buddy JJ from the Blah Blah Blahger on Saturday and she was kind enough to drive us down to the Newport Beach area, and we headed to Crystal Cove for lunch and some great beach views.  This is such a cute little beach hangout where you can actually rent cottages if you make your reservations way in advance.
