Friday Thoughts on Things

thoughts on things 4.4

1  / This little tutorial reminds me I need to learn how to weave… add it to the never ending list shall we?

2 / This rug is ridic good. It’s got a pretty lavender background and a ton of neon pink, rose, and coral… and lawd knows that color combo is nothing short of stunning.

3 / This kitchen has been making its rounds on Pinterest, and for good reason. These black cabinets and brass details are really workin for me. I have a school girl crush on them..

4 / I stumbled on this recipe and am dying to try. Homemade chips… yummy and healthy-ish.

5 / These Serena and Lily Bar carts are so versatile!! Stash some liquor or use them as funky side tables. Either way they are the bomb! I am crushing on how Lay Baby Lay used them in this cute bedroom! 

6 / I plan on buying a bunch of these, these and these feathers to stick in a vase on my desk. The little pops of gold make this bird happy…get it?

7 / These tassels from Urban Outfitters are supes cutes. I just bought a ton to use as tie backs for my new office curtains!! Pics coming soon, I hope!!!

Happy happy Friday lovers!

DIY: Striped Occasional Table

With spring in full swing we thought it would be fun to do a quick and easy DIY using IKEA’s Lack Table and some decorative fine paper we picked up at Paper Source. At just a little over $30, this small occasional table packs a BIG punch.

Here’s how we did it:

:: Noteworthy ::

Did you guys peep this home tour over on Remodelista? Well no matter if you have or haven’t, I plan on revisiting and talking about just how amazing this little bungalow is. The home was designed by super talent Martha Mulholland and photographed by Laure Joilet.

Its spectacular to say the least!!

Martha Mulholland-6-166 I mean… Its grown up good, but still fun. There is fancy bits mixed in with affordable bits, which is right up my alley.  I spy a West Elm coffee table in the living room as well as a few pillows that look very similar to ones found on the Shoppe.

FYI : Kitchensurfing

kitchen surfing copy

Have you lovers heard of Kitchensurfing?? Remember back when we threw a soirée in celebration of Southern Charm complete with a gorg 5 course meal and afternoon cocktails?

The afternoon was catered by Chef Ryan Rondeno who we found through Kitchensurfing, an online marketplace that connects you with local chefs to cook for you in your home. You can sort local chefs by genre of food and you can arrange for same day catering including clean up!! Doesn’t get much easier than that… and they also provide fridge-stocking, meal delivery + cooking classes.

Every year we take a mini vaca and rent a place in Palm Springs with some friends for a week. It’s always a grand old time minus meal prepping and clean up… I think this year we’ll use Kitchensurfing so we can lounge by the pool with an umbrella drink in hand and have a great spread prepped just for us. 

Kitchensurfing has been so kind as to extend a 15% discount on their services just for you lovers! Check it out HERE and get your dinner party on!!

Friday: Thoughts on Things

thoughts Here’s to the weekend lovers! My round up for the week..

1 // Manicure for April Showers Blues . Who would have thought Nordstrom had a blog!! What DONT they have. This little post is making me wanna get “mani-crafty” … Can I get a trademark on that?

2 // I bought these and they are real damn cute… Who would have thought that a half cowboy boot would come back…not me!

3 // Normally I am not really a fan of perfume. I wear an oil often, but this perfume is just a whole different story, it’s so fresh and smells so great. Plus the bottle is so clean lined and classic, it instantly makes your vanity snazzy.

4 // This article about my fave Interior Designer Peter Dunham on Goop was incredible! Peter basically ran down how to shop the Montpellier Fair in France. This market is on my bucket list, and now with this guide I won’t be a dumb ass tourist on the loose without cash or a clue.

5 +7 //Based on a readers’ comments about getting into quick shape, I will be starting Tracy Anderson’s 5 minute dance cardio workout HERE.. Gonna get werkin on my fitness so I can sport some tight buns in Mexico. I bought the BEST new sports bra to help with the “after baby” boobs I now possess..

6 // This instagram account is a MUST follow. The hashtag #theoandbeau kills me!

8 // Crushing on this salmon color for spring
