style and home and baby faves

09.16.20

i’ve been asked to do more clothing and style roundups but never end up finishing them these days, as you might know i am waaay into always updating my amazon faves, but i definitely don’t update my favorites on here as often.

so last week i took some time and added a new section for home favorites, baby + kid favorites and style picks! i will continually add to them all but if you are looking for a link for something now you can check there and hopefully i’ve added if its not on amazon! 

they will all permanently live under “shop” on the top menu for easy access, i hope this makes it easier to find things! all my cabinet organizing has me craving some more organization on here too!

tips

how to keep your house cool during a heatwave

09.15.20

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Trane Residential. All opinions are 100% mine.

in what’s now felt like a month long heatwave here in LA, we have been more stuck inside than EVER (who thought that was even possible at this point?!) so this post is so topical! for those of you who have central A/C, happy to share some tips for keeping your house cooler and save money and energy.

i really need to follow these because you may remember just weeks ago our A/C was busted right in the midst of a 100 degree evening. luckily we were able to get a guy out to repair it within two hours but oh man that could have been really bad for us. we’ve actually now had some sort of A/C issue during almost every heatwave over the last few years so it’d be nice if i could actually monitor our unit and make sure this doesn’t happen every single time.  Read More

halloween

ideas for celebrating halloween at home

09.02.20

so many people sent me good ideas for halloween this year in lieu of normal trick or treating, so i wanted to save them all in one accessible place!

i get really festive on all holidays, so despite doing the normal activities this year, i wasn’t planning on not celebrating big. we are renting a house with my family in palm springs (just randomly for halloween because it was the week that was avail) but because we’re always together on halloween, we thought it would be a super fun way to celebrate.

ps the one and only silver lining of not trick or treating is that arlo only took almond joys last year since they’re blue, we were like omg arlo stop please take any other candy!! now we can curate the candy selection hahah.

roundup

august faves

08.31.20

i’ve been wanting to do this sort of post forever but better to start the tradition now versus never. if you’re a loooong time follower you might remember i used to do a monthly roundup post of my life but since life is pretty much the same thing day after day lately, a wish list is way more fun.

the color of this preserved hydrangea bunch is sooooo pretty.

the sweetest little shell locket! you can get engraved too. i love this.

this was a targeted ad and boy was it targeted correctly. i feel like i need this hand powered mincer?

the cooooolest bookshelf. yes i totally see how its flistones-y but also IT IS SO COOL.

i bought this vegetable peeler a few months ago because it’s so beautiful, so yeah it must not actually work that well, right? well guess what i am here to report THATS NOT TRUE. it is THE BEST peeler we own.

we got this collapsible cup for arlo and its beautiful and functions so well.

i have worn this bra basically every day of quarantine lol– gross but it’s honestly the most comfortable and somewhat supportive bralette i’ve ever tried.

our dollhouse : living room tour

08.27.20

woo! sorry for the delay, but the day has finally come that i’m going to start sharing dollhouse room tours! i decided to do it room by room because otherwise i’ll be too overwhelmed. so first up is the living room! one of the first rooms i finished, but honestly i want to do more to it. i planned on making a lounge chair but just kept pushing it further and further down my to-do list until i skipped it. i also really want to make a wall sconce for over the couch but it never happened. and now that i have a second house to work on, i probably won’t get to those things but the room is cute as is!

shroom coffee table alternatives

08.24.20

i’ve gotten so many messages about our cb2 shroom coffee table over the years. whether it was whether or not i liked it because the reviews said it stained easily or whether or not it was ever coming back in stock. it was backordered pretty often but now it’s been such a long time since it’s been out of stock, it seems like it’s discontinued. i know people still really love this simple pedestal style and i get asked about it so often– i thought i’d round up some similar dupes for those of you who didn’t get to snag it :(

how i’ve been self-caring during quarantine

obviously quarantine has turned all of our lives upside down. for me there’ve been good weeks and bad weeks, some highs and some lows, but overall i’d say i’ve been surviving fairly well. since the beginning, i’ve been trying my best to keep up good habits for my health (and sanity), so i’m excited to share all the things i’ve incorporated into my stay-at-home routine. i’d love to do a lot more to take care of myself day to day but being childcare-less, it’s the little things that go a (fairly) long way.

pretty everything : stylish tupperware

08.11.20

ok i’ve actually had multiple requests for this roundup– and tbh, this one was so hard!! tupperware, categorically, is not super stylish. but a few companies have really stepped up on designing some way more beautiful food storage container options than what used to exist, you just have to look really hard. well, you don’t– you have me.

above:
01. inka world makes super elevated food storage responsibly!!
02. i love the design of these simple glass and white ones!
03. this pyrex set is actually so chic! i love this one.
