The other day I looked at my closet and realized that there is too much color in there, as in reaching for a regular white tee or a simple black top is just not feasible so I’m on a major mission to change that. I know that it’s super ubiquitous in internet land right now to stock up on neutrals, but if you could see my closet (and the random little piles on my bedroom floor), you’d know that my wardrobe needs some serious sprucing up.

In my quest for some inspiration, I stumbled upon this amazing blogger who in my opinion can wear white like no other and her hair, don’t even get me started on that hair, it is absolute perfection.

If you are in need of some serious schooling on wearing neutrals, you need to check out these archives. Oh, and be prepared to head right to Walgreens right after to get some white nail polish just like I did. No joke.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to attend a Dabble class so I was really excited that I got to attend a clay play session hosted by Drum Face Chicago. The class is set up so you can make something with clay either by handbuilding (this is what I did) or experimenting with wheel throwing. It was really neat seeing everyone’s vision come to life, one creative gal used her preferred method of holding her coffee mugs to make a pair of really neat mugs. Our creations were then left in the capable hands of our lovely teacher Heather who will fire them up on the kiln and have them ready for us to pick up in a few weeks. I can’t wait to get my hand on my little handmade bowls!

A few instax pictures of my recent trip to Kauai, nothing screams tourist like a gal with a dslr camera, an instax camera and her camera phone, trying to use them all simultaneously, naturally.

I’m obsessed with these simple but stunning displays, I am especially taken by the different ways to use wire hangers. I actually detest wire hangers–for my clothes that is, but of course, I have a plethora of wire hangers just hanging around. Also, how random and awesome is that mirror hanging with the posters/pictures?

The only complaint I have about my home is the lack of good light, taking good photographs is nearly impossible. Which is why when I see beautiful images like these by Saria Dy, I am equal parts inspired and extremely envious.

kauai, hawaii

hawaii-1

I just got back from the most amazing vacation in Hawaii, and friends, I cannot express enough how amazing that place is. I fell head over heels in love with Kauai, the mountains, the beaches, the locals, the food, everything was simply incredible and I cannot wait to go back. I’m gonna warn you, this place might start getting inundated with pictures from my trip, I apologize in advance, but as my husband and I kept saying, it is impossible to take a bad picture there.

Don’t you just love finding small but extremely well-curated online shops? How much more do you love an online shop that carries the loveliest bath oils this side of the www? If that’s the case, then you must check out Ederle, I seriously had to stop myself from posting every last picture on that site.
