All White Bedding

After a few recent stays at nice hotels with all white bedding - I have dreams of replacing our current bedding with the same. I still love my brightly multicolored quilt we currently use, and I think it would make a create accent. These images are all so inspiring!

A Boy and His Bulldog

I know these photos are old news... but I just can't help post. These photos are just too cute! I love how cozy they are together - and how they are basically the same size.

Fancy Sweatpants!

I'm a huge fan of Sarah from A House in the Hills, and the moment I saw these peg pants on her style post I knew I had to get them. I did and they've been in regular rotation ever since! The quote on the post reads: 
"the description of these pants on shopbop says that they're "casual sweatpants cut from crepe".  i don't know how i feel about that but i do know that I LOVE THESE PANTS!  ok, so they kind of feel like silky sweats, but you know that just makes me love them more!"

Faux Crystals

These drawing series by Ana Montiel get more interesting each time I look at them. A series of these faux crystal prints would be so great on my wall. I love the richness of color in each one!

DIY Wooden Place Cards

A few weeks ago we threw a surprise 60th birthday dinner party for my Dad - and I decided to make some simple place card settings for the table. I wanted something that reflected my Dad's personality - he loves woodworking, so using these flat birch cards was a perfect fit.

They were a big hit at the party, and so easy to make - just a few quick steps, shown below!

You'll need:
- blank wooden business cards
- silver binder clips
- letter stamps & ink

First stamp out the name of each guest.

Clip the medium sized binder clip to the bottom center of the card.

Remove the front handle.

Flip up the handle on the back.

And voila!

They are so quick to make, you can customize a dinner table in no time!

P.S. Remember these cute deer place card holders?!

Adrift - SF Fog Video

This video by photographer Simon Christen is truly mesmerizing - a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. And even though I love living in one of the least foggy neighborhoods in the city, I can still admire the beauty that is captured in this time-lapse photography video.

Fishtail Braid

I love braiding my hair when it's long... and I love the aesthetic of a fishtail braid. But I'm slightly embarrassed to admit - I've never been able to successfully do a fishtail brain on my own hair! Maybe practice makes perfect - until then, any tips or suggestions?

Other fun braids!
