Hi friends. It’s been just a minute, hasn’t it ? SO MUCH has changed since our last post in April. WOW. The world has felt extra heavy + there’s so many feelings out there. I hope wherever this is finding you – your healthy, safe + happy. I’m still not sure where I stand with the current world climate – in so many different ways, I have so many thoughts and feelings. My intention with this space has always been to be extra honest + positive. And of course to share my LOVE of home, food, travel + lifestyle with you all. While not ignoring what’s going on in our world – I’d really like to do my best to provide a happy distraction here, (mostly maybe just for myself) – I’d like to continue sharing more frequently and connecting with inspiration! So, let’s hop right back into things – shall we?
While staying home – and brainstorming ALL the decor, I’ve had some extra time to online browse. If you’ve been following over on IG – you know we’ve simplified our kitchen and completely fallen in love with everything black, white + neutral in this space. I’m rounding up my FAVORITE IKEA picks — all black, white + neutral goodness all over. And as always – affordable. I love these pieces!
Mother’s Day is just a few short weeks away – & in today’s different times, it’s something I am looking forward to. A little bit of normalcy, am I right? Here’s a few favorite things of mine if you need some ideas to celebrate your sweet mom this year.
I’m all about spa days, in of course right now. I’m obsessed with this scrub, these bath bombs + salts. If your feeling a little fancy – my favorite face mask and hair towel too. Give her a candle to light too while she’s relaxing.
And because most of us are staying in right now – we should be cozy + comfortable. The best cozy slippers, my favorite sherpa throw blanket (that’s under $30 too!) and my go to comfy top.
For our moms who love to cook and spend time in the kitchen – my current favorite cookbook, a gorgeous dutch oven that can be left out AND used year round, my favorite bake ware set and a pretty set of hand towels for daily use.
Our moms deserve something pretty to set out in their homes – am I right? A couple of favorite pretty home essentials. I just brought this gorgeous marble tray home last month – now I think I need one in every single room. It’s perfect for the coffee table, the kitchen to organize your spices + oils or on the bathroom counter to display her things. I’m on the pedestal rage right now – elevating simple things such as hand soaps + lotions, plants or candles on just about any space – I LOVE this larger pedestal, it’s vintage and unique. This is another great option if your looking for something round, but still large enough to display a plant or candle. And I love this little mini stand – because it’s mini. I have a small candle on mine. And if you just need something simple and pretty to display the gorgeous arrangement of flowers or plant your gifting her – I love this taupe option and these lattice pots.
I think it’s safe to say we’re all spending a bit more time working in our own yards this year – let’s spice up mom’s garden game with a few gorgeous tools – I love this 3 piece set and this garden tote + seat combo. Also, these gold plated tools are what my dreams are made of.
I hope this gives you a few good ideas for the moms in our lives — stay safe + healthy out there. Happy Sunday. Xoxo.
How special is celebrating someone you love – ALL DAY long. I love Valentine’s Day for this reason. Be it yourself, your partner, your children, pets, friends or siblings – they deserve celebration. A quick round up of some great gift ideas I’m loving this year. For everyone’s budget + everyone on your list.
