friday finds.

i can always tell when i’ve hit a bit of burnout and it’s time for a few moments of zen. my pinterest pins become much more minimalist and simple and it’s almost as if i’m decluttering my style to assist my brain in a little of the same. i love writing the blog, but usually, my life and work take me to other countries where i seem to refresh, and see...

wear this there: hotel joaquin.

in honor of my new hometown, laguna beach (it’s almost been a year!), i thought it might be nice to share laguna’s own hotel joaquin this week — a petite boutique resort nestled above beautiful shaw’s cove (just a short stroll from the hotel to this secluded, beautiful beach). not only are the grounds and view gorgeous, but the renovation to this retro...

instagram worthy: @longingforlennon.

i’ve been a fan of elin jensdotter’s work and lifestyle for quite a long time, so it’s no surprise i also hugely admire her instagram account, @longingforlennon, where she primarily shares her incredibly beautiful vintage-inspired home. a ‘sustainable stylist & vintage huntress’ elin’s feed is stunning and her eye sublime. she also runs bodil vintage...

a little help from mother nature.

i think with everything 2020 has put us through, we could all use any distractions we can get, and one of mine is definitely getting outside, whether it’s an early walk on the beach or spending time in my garden. sadly, so many are being affected by these wildfires and heat, which is making getting out in mother nature even more difficult right now....

let’s just stay in bed.

why is the monday following a short holiday week always a little bit more difficult to feel motivated? last week was a busy one, with my family visiting from out of town (which was soooo nice — finally, spending time with people i love!) but today i feel tired, and i think i could feel quite content if someone were to bring me breakfast in bed, with...

friday finds.

this week has been hard. not only are we still dealing with covid, and you parents out there having to decide about sending your kids off to school, but these terrible wildfires have hit the west coast in the most horrific way. as if we needed something else to worry about. it’s all just too much sometimes, isn’t it? i hope you get a chance to do some...

wear this there: the drifter.

when travel is a good idea again, one city that could use our love is new orleans — between covid and hurricanes they’ve taken a brutal beating. this week’s wear this there is taking us on a weekend getaway to a NOLA renovation ripe for a visit — the drifter. revamping retro motels is all the rage and i’m very alright with that — they start with great...

adorn your walls with deborah bowness.

even though she’s been designing, making, and exhibiting wallpaper since 1999, i’ve somehow only just discovered these inspiring works of art from deborah bowness, an artist and designer i couldn’t wait to share. deborah attended the Royal College of Art, where she obtained an M.A. in constructed textiles and it was there she began to challenge preconceived...

on trend: desert living.

one of the places i imagine getting away to during this covid quarantine is the desert. its wide open, clear sky open spaces seem like the perfect getaway. not too many people around, desert and palm trees for miles around — as long as i’ve got a pool to beat the heat i think it could be quite nice. a lot of people i know have been buying property out...

friday finds.

hurrah! it’s a long holiday weekend as we technically end summer with labor day here in the states, but honestly, this is the part of summer i start to really enjoy, as crowds (yes, even during covid) leave laguna and i can feel more comfortable spending time at the beaches. there’s nothing quite like a late afternoon under an umbrella as the sun starts...
