thursday thrifty treasures

check out the loot i scored from the napa goodwill this evening! a new bentwood/chiavari desk chair (which might get a fancy coat of paint), a ceramic floral lamp base, a rattan spiral (sunburst mirror diy post to come!) and a framed vintage doily that i've had my eye on for two weeks. hope you're all gearing up for a fabulous long weekend my dears! xo

the beauty department

i don't know how i've j u s t come across this incredible style blog by lauren conrad, amy nadine and kristin ess. i am bursting with excitement because in my opinion...any tip from miss lc is golden (her style book is practically my personal bible). go check out the beauty department for more great tutorials like this one.

around the house: the entry

yesterday i was staging a few images for my upcoming fourth + school - fourth of july sale and i decided to capture some fun little vignettes around our house. here is our entry...


hello summer

it finally feels like summer around here and i'm so happy to be wearing shorts, sundresses and sandals. we've been working on our little garden since january and it feels so great to be able to sit in the backyard during the evening, enjoying our flowers/veggies and lounging with a glass of sangria (and perhaps making a few running passes through the sprinkler to cool off). hope you're loving the beginning of summer too.

p.s. i wish i had a patio that looked this cool.
