A Valentine’s Vlog!

February 16, 2016

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together these little vlogs the past few weeks (if you haven’t noticed, haha!). Since we both had the day off yesterday, my valentine and I swapped gifts and stayed in for a cozy breakfast, ventured out for an afternoon movie, did some shopping, and ended the day with deep-dish pizza. I’m sure I don’t say this enough but if you ever see beautiful photos or videos on this blog, it is because of this man! He is always a good sport and sometimes even lets me film him with the camera once in a while ;).

This Weekend: Manis + Mimosas!

February 8, 2016

manis-and-mimosasHappy Monday! This weekend seemed to go by in the blink of an eye, but I had so much fun hanging with my girl, Mel, and venturing into SF! We stopped by our girl Aimee‘s event and sipped mimosas while getting our nails done. It was such a nice treat and it was so great to meet some other fellow SF bloggers. The event was sponsored by Yes To, a brand that I’ve used and loved for years. We took home some goodies, including some products for our guys. When I got home, I told Sawyer that I brought him back some swag from the event and he said, “Can I eat it?”. LOL! Honestly, you probably could, but I don’t think it would taste very good!

DIY Copper Planters!

February 1, 2016

diy-copper-plantersSo… it’s time I just come out and say it: #ihavethisthingwithcopper. You may have noticed my Insta feed has been inundated with copper errythang recently. For the past month or so, I’ve been helping my brother shop for home decor for his new apartment in the South Bay (p.s. if you see him, make sure to give him a warm California welcome!). Much to his dismay, every time I spot copper home decor I immediately forget all about his apartment and make a beeline. My rationale: you know who would love this copper tray/basket/dish/trinket? Me.


If you have an obsession appreciation of copper, then learn how to make these tiny + adorable DIY copper planters! It takes under a minute, which I think is a DIY record!
