Cookbooks

As I continue to hone my skills in the kitchen I've recently been drawn to cookbooks. I hate to say it but I DO judge a book by it's cover. I love the idea of beautiful cookbooks stacked up in my kitchen. I have been eying the first one, Vefa's Kitchen for almost a year now- it's stunning, and currently on major sale here. The others are ones I'm interested in collecting too. Do you have any favorites I should look into? I'm also planning on stepping up my game when if comes to storing leftovers and these enamel storage bowls are right in my wheelhouse.



Each book is currently on sale ;)

Get The Look: Osbourne and Little Coronata Star

Posted on: Wednesday, September 17, 2014

The Osbourne and Little Coronata Star wallpaper keeps popping up all over the place and I love it. It's perfect for a ceiling but I also like the idea of of using it on the walls paired with wainscoting. 

At first glance I thought it was the Sister Parish Serendipity print (also a favorite). Then digging a bit deeper I've found not only the original source but also that many people are forgoing the pricey paper and finding great success recreating the look using decals! It certainly seems like one would need to arm themselves with a great deal of patience as they map out the grid, but then it's clear sailing as you simply peel and stick the stars. You can purchase Coronata star decals via Walls Need Love and Urban Walls.
What do you think? Would you stick to the real deal or attempt this DIY?

Have you seen the new arrivals at Society Social? Just call me a smitten kitten. I've been toying with the idea of trying to DIY my own hand painted brushstroke lamp but lately have thought better of it. I would love to add the navy one to my nightstand. I also really like this blue padoga trellis lamp.
Then the skirted tables- oh my! Offered in both rectangular and round options there are TWENTY colors to choose from and a reasonable price point. I'm really excited by the prospect of a rectangular one I'm just hoping that it isn't continuously wrinkled or I'll be using this little diddy all the time.

 Is there anything better than a summer picnic? My friend Jamieson and I took advantage of the weather this weekend and enjoyed a perfect little outdoor picnic. Jamieson pens the blog "The Nanny Recipes" and is a chef. Naturally, I leave the food choices up to her and she lets me style the table. If you enjoy cooking you must head over to her blog for some inspiration. I can barely cook but have had some success recreating a few of her dishes!
Shop the look:





Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Here's a round up of my current loves. Those camo flats, consider it done. Also, I snagged the above silver cuff over the weekend- it also comes in gold but was too similar to one that I currently own. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Full Swing

Posted on: Wednesday, August 27, 2014


I'm back to work in full swing this week and its left little to no time for blogging, working out, or really anything outside of meetings, and prep work. I hate to say it but getting into work mode makes me crave fall! I love autumn and am perpetually hot so there's nothing better than a crisp morning where I get to throw on a scarf and go.
Just popping in for a quick hello, hope everyone is having a great week. Until I have a proper post for the week feel free to stay up to date by shopping my current loves here and see what I'm up to here on instagram.
