boho loving



I l o v e a good boho chic look... Cool and very carefree looking!  I have a tendency to go back and forth with a very classic New England style or as my friends call me Ms. J-Crew to long flown hippy dresses {as I call them}. I love to be as natural and simple as I can. No make-up, sun kissed skin with long beach wavy hair. Most days I can get away with that look... And I love absolutely it! Try it sometime... You might "just" like it! Hope summer is treating you all well... I can't believe school is around the corner. Crazy!

eye candy


I don't know about you... But I've been completely suckered into staring at this picture all morning long! What is it? The random patterns that all blend so well together? The soft and stunning color pallet? The simplicity of all the items on the nightstand? Little boy blue and baby pink girl colors combined with  strong adult gold? Hmmmm... What is it? I think everything is  just p e r f e c t!  Hope you're enjoy this beautiful eye candy for this Saturday Morning! If you have the answers please tell me...

dreamy


I'm so motivated on sprucing up my backyard. I want tons of new and fabulous things, but have to go in baby steps. Plus, I want everything done a s a p! Typical me... But what I'm learning is doing one thing a day or one thing a week is good. If it puts a smile on my face verses stresses me out to get it all done, I'm A OK! Good things come to people who wait. hahah  So my first plan of attack is eliminate the junk and useless stuff that's currently in the backyard right now, then move things where they're supposed to go... Then sit and figure out the layers. That would be pillows, flower pots, flowers, candles and furniture. Wish me luck...
