WHOLE HOUSE LIGHTING PLAN

Whole House Lighting Plan

Selecting all new lighting for an entire home can be a daunting task, especially when you’re working within a budget. Lighting can be such a statement and when picking it out, you want it to reflect not only your home, but your personal style as well. In my opinion, a bad light fixture choice can ruin an entire rooms’ aesthetic (think boob lights) and that’s why it’s so important to really take your time with choosing your lights! Making…

HOPE FROM INFERTILITY

I write this post as I sit in the waiting room of my reproductive endocrinologists office. Waiting, hoping. Ive put off writing this post for a while even though in stark contrast, I’ve felt so compelled to share because I truly know I’m not alone. 1 in 8 women struggle with infertility, whether it’s secondary infertility (as in my case) permanent infertility (also in my case) or first time unexplained infertility. I never imagined myself sitting here. Well actually,…

EASTER BASKET EDIT | BOYS & GIRLS

Can you believe Easter is almost here? I’m finding that the kids are getting tougher and tougher to find cute things for their Easter Basket as they’re getting older but I did manage to find a bit for both to make this year’s Easter just as great as years before… I’m trying to hang on to these holidays because I’m sure my years of playing Easter bunny and Santa are numbered. 
I typically select a theme and run with it,…

I’ll keep this post short and sweet so without further ado…

So do you love these new hues as much as I do? I’m finding myself specifically drawn to the…

MARCH EDIT

MARCH EDIT

Can y’all believe it’s March? I can’t… this month is going to be a great month for our family. We get to celebrate an intimate family wedding, right here on Coronado, and many more exciting things to come this month!
Here’s a few things I’m coveting for March. There’s just something about spring season in California. It’s a lighter season, starts to get warmer, and things bloom early here. Ready to swap out all of my little black dresses for…

10 HATS FOR SPRING & SUMMER

Last week we had a sprinkle of spring… warmer temperatures with a few days of sunshine and I even had a rose bloom in our yard. I always find myself browsing for new hats around this time of year. I think it gives me something to look forward to for spring and summer, plus, a pretty hat can spruce up an entry way or bedroom wall too! Design and style win!
I’ve seen a few trends I’m really into this…

MEET MILLIE | BRINGING HOME PUPPY

I’m so excited to introduce y’all to our newest family member… Millie Mays! If you follow me on Instagram, you know we picked her up in Utah almost a month ago but I thought she needed a formal introduction on the blog and I wanted to share all the puppy must haves that we’ve been using and loving!
Millie is an F1B Sheepadoodle. She is 75% poodle and 25% Old English Sheepdog which makes her very hypoallergenic and a minimal…
