About Me

I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Friday Catch Up

I've gotten caught up in the moment and have pretty much not had a second for this blog, and as sorry as I am, it won't get better any time soon. Tomorrow I leave for Mexico for an annual family vacation (!!!!), but once I am back - I will bring my A-game. 

Let's play catch up?

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
I'll take mine with a margarita and a side of guacamole.

Friday Musings

I've been waiting for this weekend... since last weekend!
Some Friday Musings I'd like to embrace:

The perfect messy pony - for girls who don't wash their hair (like me).  I've been meaning to snag this for like ever print for quite some time, maybe I''ll get around to it this weekend (probably won't).  Comfy early spring layering. I love sweaters and shorts almost as much as I love a hot mug of super sweet coffee. A MINT KITCHEN. I don't even think I need to say much about that - I'm sure you'll feel how I feel. And finally, a bit of sass for Saturday night - black peplum and printed heels - Elin Kling is killin it, no?

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I Want Wednesday

I am a creature of habit and I always go for what's comfortable, so I usually have the same pieces of jewelery in rotation day in and day out. Lately it's  been my gold name plate necklace (circa 1992), my rapper watch, and some basic studs, but I'm ready to add a few new pieces into the mix. 

I'm always a sucker for dainty gold pieces (see here) so when I came across By the Coco on Etsy, I was immediately in love.

The pieces are right up my alley and more than affordable (read: CHEAP).  I especially fancy the love ring, which fills the void in my jewelery chest for this, which my pockets are not nearly deep enough for.

||  love ring $13.00 ||   skull bracelet $13.00  || 
||  bar necklace $14.00 ||  girly skull earrings $12.00  ||

I've already ordered the bar necklace and the love ring. They'll be in heavy rotation.

Room of the Day

As much as I love perfectly polished rooms, there is something about a room that makes you want to curl up with a hot cup of coffee that I can't get enough of.  A little bit mismatched, a little bit messy, and always full of natural light.

I love the glamour of the metallic in the rug paired with the stark white walls and raw accents.  The sofa is plush enough to melt into and the pops of yellow are just scattered enough that it's not too matchy-matchy.
Let's not forget to address that window/door combo either..
