Friday Movies

Image
Being the cool boyfriend that my guy is and knowing that this movie was done by the producers of Little Miss Sunshine (my favorite), he kindly put this on hold for me at the library and well all I can is you have to watch it. I'm obsessed, I've already seen it three times!!! The cast is a great group of actors, Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson and Aubrey Plaza, winner my book. What are you watching this weekend?!

Friday Mornings

Image
What are you up too this lovely Easter weekend, spending time with family and friends? I'll keep it short and sweet this Friday, have a wonderful weekend and I'm hoping the weather allows you to enjoy the a little bit of the holiday outside. It's quite close to perfect here in the California desert, I've been up early close to every morning just to be able to enjoy the beginnings of this season. Happy weekend and see you all Monday :)

True story, I use to be terrified of butterflies!! As any child would sneak for something there parent clearly told them they couldn't have I would always try to creep in on movies my brother and dad would be watching when I was obviously too young to watch. Well serves me right for watching Silence Of The Lambs when I was four years old, nightmares followed and since I thought moths were butterflies, I'd freak out every time I saw one. Now that I'm older and can distinguish the difference between moths and butterflies I'd say I have a particular liking to to these beauties, its going on a month now of trying to find the right butterfly pin-board to display in my bedroom. What do you think?!

New Do's

Spring time call for new beginnings, I'm starting to think for me that's sporting a new do, I'm tired of long hair so I'll be chopping off about three to four inches within the week!!! Ready to do something new and different with your hair, I totally say go for it!!!

Play Ball

Get a group of your closest girlfriends and their guys and have a day at the sandlot for a few games of softball. Grab your favorite baseball tee, an ice chest full of beer with some easy appetizers and make a day of fun in the sun with friends and lovers.

Sneaker Style

Image
Need another reason to go out walking, will these dotted babies do the trick?! As a child of the nineties and with a shoe obsessed mother, I grew up wearing close to every color of Keds, so when I saw this collaboration between Keds and Kate Spade, I couldn't help but clap my hands a little. Aren't they perfect for this spring season?!

Spring List

Image
Remember my to-do list for spring last year, well I'm up to making my lists as usual of goals I'd like to complete and new and fun tasks I'd like to take on this spring. So I thought I'd start the season off with this little note-to-self, take a walk whether its stepping outside the office for five minutes (c'mon you can pull away from the desk for five minutes a day) or waking up half an hour earlier this season to get some sun!!! The weather here in Palm Springs has been to die for so I'm taking full advantage of soaking up some rays, checking out gardens in full bloom and enjoying the scenery because it's the season here in Palm Springs and it couldn't be more beautiful out! Hope your Tuesday is lovely?!!

Friday Mornings

A whole Friday to myself, there are no words to describe how thrilled I am to be on a break from school and work for the day. My day's starting off just right, how's your week been, hopefully not to stressful or chaotic?! I plan on spending the day with myself (I need some quality down time, are you with me, don't you ever just crave some alone time?!) which includes a light lunch, roaming the town, people watching  (fashion week and the tennis tournament has filled the streets of Palm Springs so I'm enjoying people watching and seeing the town busy because in a few short months it will be close to ghost town with the heat creeping in ) and looking forward to some much needed tlc time with my man this evening. As for the weekend, I'm off to see Beauty and the Beast, enjoying some much needed girl time and hitting the sheets, I've been sick for a solid two weeks and I'm trying to catch up on sleep, doesn't this room look so inviting and comfy with the b…

With spring in full force I've become inspired by fresh blooms, newly arranged bouquets of flowers,  a pop of color to fill my home and the subtle smells of just picked flowers from the market. What's inspiring you this spring season?! Happy Weekend!!

Take Me To Back to the Countryside

All I can think about lately is the English countryside, gardens are in full bloom and I'm dying to wander through quaint hamlets, it's the perfect time to get lost in a beautiful lush English garden!

Daily Escape

Image
These last few weeks have been exhausting and with spring break approaching, I'm ready to check out of school for a few days! So mentally I've been escaping to far off medieval lands like Canterbury, England; serves me so for staying in the travel/history section a little too much at the library. My mind takes me to a place where troubadours roam the street, mystery and revenge is lurking in the halls of cathedral corridors and the Gregorian Chant can be heard from every street corner near the famous cathedral.  Where is your mind today?!

Fine Dorming

Image
Whenever I need to feel inspired I always resort to looking at Maximilian Sinsteden's dorm room, its my dream space. Yes you heard right, his dorm room! His taste is beyond exquisite and perfection, it's out of this world gorgeous! Whose interiors make you happy as a clam?!

Creating Your Very Own

Image
Your home space should reflect your personality, your style and should inspire you more than anything else! I'm constantly working on creating the right ambiance and making my home truly my own space, my little haven if you will. My space screams comfort and is covered with books, earthly tones and a little too much pink with a dash of worldliness with trinkets from Louisiana to Denmark! What are some of your treasures you display throughout your home, what makes a home to you?!

Friday Movies

Image
Ok, in all seriousness I loved this movie while growing up. While I grew up mostly on Nickelodeon I did watch a few of the original Disney movies and this was one of them. It first started with Smart House, Ryan Merriman was Ryan Gosling in 2000's am I wrong?! He was a serious babe magnet and I watched several movies he stared in just because he was in it!!! Anyway if you're feeling up to watching a cheesy kid leprechaun movie, this is it! What are you watching this weekend? 

Friday Mornings

It's Friday and I honestly could not be more excited, are we on the same page?! I had a great weekend while in Big Bear but unfortunately before the big trip last week I started getting sick, it turned into more than I thought and I've been trying to battle this beast all week while taking on projects for school which have taken over my life, so if my mom or sister hear the word team project one more time I'm sure they want to kill me! However this week is coming to a close and my sisters stay is practically over, so that means being a complete cat (which basically means sleeping all weekend long). So excuse me if I stay huddled up in my bed for the next few days dreaming about this room, doesn't it look like heaven, I think so!!!
