Hi friends! So Andrew and I just went furniture shopping in Solana Beach. We went into a bunch of stores looking for beds and other furniture items. We are moving into a new place this summer and need to get some new things, so we figured we’d start looking asap. So here’s the deal. A lot of the stores we were in had some great things, but everything was pretty high in price. The headboard we liked was about $800 and it wasn’t even exactly what we wanted. So I remembered about Joss & Main which is a flash sale site for furniture and home decor and pulled it up on my phone. I found a section called custom upholstery and you can basically create your ideal bed for under $500. I put together a little collage of some pieces I am drooling over right now. Let me know if you guys have heard of this website and if you have ordered anything from there. I am planning on getting this bed within the next month and cannot wait!
Something I love about entryway’s is how they set the tone for the rest of the home. I’m a sucker for bright spaces with eclectic accents pieces. Your entry should be both beautiful and functional. A place to sit and put your purse or keys is a must. I also love statement light fixtures, neutral colors and earthy accents. I hope these pictures give you inspiration!

So here’s the deal. I was shopping online for some cute home gift ideas, and got suckered in to One King’s Lane. Holy cow. Why don’t more people talk about this site? If you don’t already know, I am obsessed with home decor. Andrew and I are on the hunt for a house right now, but are waiting until we save some more money. I really spend a lot of my time dreaming of my future home. Pinterest is a great place where I can put all my ideas and find so much inspiration. Once we do get a house you can expect a lot more decor posts. So in the meantime I am going to show you what I’m lusting over. Usually I pick items from multiple stores online, but I could not leave One King’s Lane. Most of their pieces are right up my alley and they are having some amazing sales right now. I am so in love with copper and marble decor accents, and the site is filled with them! I mean…can we take a moment and check out that rolling pin…?! I hope this gives you some great gift ideas!
Happy Monday everyone! I am currently sweating profusely as I type this and listening to some lovely construction a foot out of our apartment window. Oh the joys. Today’s video is all about staples. I have been ordering a lot off Vitacost’s site lately since we didn’t bring much with us to Seattle. This first order consisted of many essentials…drinks, oils, bars etc. I hope you can get some ideas from my purchases and like always leave me some of your favorites in the comments!
So I want to start a new series where I show you some photographs that I love. I know that my blog is mainly fashion and beauty, however I am also a huge home decor fanatic. Living in a tiny and temporary apartment isn’t too ideal for showing you my decor. So I figured I would share pictures that I have pinned that represent what I would like my future home to look like. I wanted to start off with the office. I would love to have my own office one day. A space where I can go that represents me. Somewhere clean, pretty, and inspiring.
A few things on my wish list:
lots of light
Make sure to follow me on Pinterest to see everything I love!
Happy Monday! So over Easter (I know it was a long time ago) we had a build-your-own pizza party at my aunt and uncle’s house. It was such a fun thing to do with everyone. People really got into it and it became a competition of who could make the best pizza. My aunt had a massive spread of every topping you could ever imagine! I thought this would be such a great party idea for any occasion. It is a super easy thing to make and you can really customize it. I listed some ingredients below that would be great to have. The fresher the better. Also, if you are hosting the party yourself it’s a good idea to cook all the meats the night before and keep them in the fridge. Little ziploc bags are an easy way to store everything and then just pour each topping in a separate bowl. Now I really want some pizza!
Crust: uncooked pizza dough or premade crust (the fresh dough was the best)
So I have been going slightly crazy in the pinterest/home decorating/dreaming department these days. I am so excited and ready to decorate my future home! Renting apartments doesn’t allow for many permanent decor plans, so I have had a lot of time to brainstorm what I really love. Once style in particular that has been so appealing to me is European. There is nothing prettier than buildings in Paris and old eclectic designs. Brass hardware, chandeliers and glossy black accents pretty much make me drool. We’ll see how much I’ll get away with once Andrew and I buy a home. These are some items that are on my lust list!
