Mother’s Day Gift Guide

O.K. so is Mother’s day like more than a month a way? Yes. However, if you are like me, everything tends to be last minute and I scramble for finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift when there’s barely time for shipping. In the spirit of 2018 being my year to get my shit together and be on top of things- I’m already starting to think about Mother’s Day and am willing to bring you in to the fold if you want to be on your game too.

Do you go online shopping, fill up your cart, but don’t quite check out right away…? I like to leave things in my cart for at least a week or so and think about the purchases to decide if I really want them. Most of the places that I shop, I create an account sign in so the items in my cart is always saved when/if I want to go back for it. Here’s what I’m currently coveting…

Car shopping …

Car shopping is something that sounds like it should be fun- a new car! Captain’s chairs! All the cup holders you could want! How exciting! But in reality it’s a bear. The part where you get to look at cars and test drive is fun… but the financial part is the worst! It’s a whole lot of sitting in uncomfortable chairs, sometimes with the sun in your eyes, feeling hungry and thirsty, and the waiting… oh the waiting… while you go back and forth and quibble about mileage and money down and monthly payments.. ugh… it’s enough to make your head spin…

Steve and I also have very similar personalities when it comes to wheeling and dealing… neither of us like it. I’m not a super pushy person and feel uncomfortable in situations where confrontation is involved… so even though everyone is supposed to be making everyone feel like family, it’s actually an incredibly awkward situation. Steve’s aunt, on the other hand, is super confident when it comes to car shopping. She literally comes in, tells them what she wants, and what she’s going to pay, and that’s it! Boom! She makes it happen. We should have brought her tonight. Ha!

How about you and your partner? Is one of you more the take charge deal maker? How do you deal in situations where you are making major purchases? The whole thing feels so heavy and important and I feel way too much like an adult…

but… we got a new car!! With a third row of seats! And it’s a big, juicy, van! (I’m totally embracing #momlife amiright?!)

Surf Shack Chic

So I am fully in the throws of re-doing the guest room. We had originally gone with a sort of travel/wanderlust theme to the room, but I’m looking towards a major change. I don’t know if these 90 degree days got me going, or my total anticipation and love for the beach and surf, but I’m going with a kind of casual surfer shack feel for this room. In fact, I’m so in love with this theme, that I kinda want to re-do my whole house centered around this idea. A few years ago- pre-pinterest- I ripped out a surfer shack spread from a magazine, that I was super obsessed with, and I still swoon over these images. (below)

YES, this carpet in my house is gross and needs to go!

Pre-Pinterest pinterest 
The surfer shack look is a carefully curated design, there is a fine line between it looking effortlessly cool and boho, and hokey Oriental Trading. (Read- plastic surfboard decor). I liked to focus on cultivating a look that incorporates some boho, a little mid century modern, rich woods (and carvings), macrame, definitely some rattan, and top it off with just a little bit of shibori. Here’s some of my inspiration for pulling together this look…

endless summer…

I’m beyond stoked that summer is just around the corner. I can already feel the warm sun on my back, the sand in my toes, the waves washing over me. It’s only going to be mid-70’s today, so I’m going to dream about surf style for my endless summer of 2017.
