away we go!

July 19, 2012

As we’re in the full swing of summer (and hot hot weather), I’m happy to say that I have a few upcoming trips planned. With that, my blog might take a slight backseat to my frolicking in ocean waves and spending time with friends & family. Sometimes, you just have to take the time to appreciate the present moment and just breathe. But I’m not gone forever, and I’m always on twitter and Instagram! See you in a few 🙂



small space living

July 17, 2012

As I’m on the brink of my move date, (August 4th!) I am finding myself more and more excited about decorating and organizing. Since the apartment is small, I’ve been scouring the boards of Pinterest to find the best options for myself and my budget in the new place. Here are a few ideas I’m totally going to steal! Ikea, here I come!

A great way to organize bills, magazines, trinkets, etc.

Totally loving these baskets and the muted palate. I’m all about hiding scarves and other hard-to-fold items!

toast to the weekend

July 13, 2012


‘Tis the season for summer berries and celebration! How about a cocktail chock-full of strawberries + sparkly? That’s my kind of drink. With something as fresh and tasty as that, who needs another reason to celebrate!? Grab your friends, grab your pitcher and cheers to a fun weekend ahead 🙂

party favor(ites)

 Recently I’ve been noticing lots of gorgeous party tables on Pinterest, and am determined to someday host a color and pattern-coordinated event. Who says you have to wait for your bridal shower to go all out?! First thing on my list of ideas: monogrammed placemats. It’s the perfect way to have a consistent table while also giving guests something useful and personal to take home with them! Now if only choosing a color and pattern weren’t so daunting…

black & yellow

Lately I’ve been practically living in my yellow shorts from J.Crew, pairing them with bright blues and crisp whites.  I’m loving this combination of a black striped top with the bright yellow base – perfect for a stroll around town or a quick summer lunch date!

DIY decor

July 6, 2012


Being an extremely indecisive (and yes, somewhat picky) girl, I have trouble committing to apartment decor. One day I’m all about the blues and greens and yellows, while the next I am obsessing over all things pink. I’m loving this idea of framing tissue paper, wrapping paper, stationary, you name it! An easy, inexpensive fix for any wall. Now, let’s get crafting!

happy holiday!

I hope you all have a fantastic time celebrating! Let’s all be grateful for the good and hopeful about the rest. And hopefully we can all enjoy some warm weather, great foods and ooh + ahh-worthy fireworks!
