Color Crush:: Flower Power

Floral patterns are so on trend right now.  Bringing in an unexpected pop of floral can take a room from nice to amazing.  The same goes in fashion.  Intermixing florals in an outfit can make such a statement, especially if you do it right.  Enjoy this array of floral images.  (I personally want to pluck myself in one of those floral chairs.)

City Crush:: My Carry-On Bag

I’m heading to Utah for an event in a couple of days and thought it would be fun take a peak into my carry-on bag. 
I have a lululemon bag very similar to this.  It fits everything perfectly.  There is a spot for my laptop and all the other travel necessities.  I’ll definitely be carrying my laptop with me, but these are things that I always travel with.  I’m completely spoiled by my Dr….

Sunday Coffee Sippin’

Happy Sunday everyone.  So far it’s been a great weekend.  We changed the little misters room into a tween room.  Gone is the sweet loft bed and the primary buckets of toys and in came the queen bed up against the corner and the cool orange west elm martini side table.  His room is still a work in progress, but we are definitely on the road to change.  Thank goodness he still wants his huge…

Board #3: Pinteresting

The weather the past few days have been utterly divine.  People have smiles on their faces…short sleeves, flip flops – just heavenly.  It has me thinking of Summer.  I thought it would be fun to put together a board that is all about a summer party.  Cooking in a fabulous kitchen, arriving on a darling pink vespa, the table set with bright colors and eating scrumptious food.  How does that…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday!  What a week – it’s been really busy and very thankful.  Excited to spend the day with my sister, brother-in-law and nephew tomorrow.  Wish they could stay longer, but we’ll take what we can get.  Hoping this weather stays as beautiful as it’s been these last two days.  What are you all up to?

Music+Recipes+Postcards

I discovered Turntable Kitchen from City Sage’s blog.  This video is what got me and the wheels in my head started spinning.

The Turntable Kitchen Pairings Box Experience from High Beam Media on Vimeo.
This would be a great concept for a teaser for an event that you might be planning.  Picture this – you’re sending a group to Hawaii and you want to get them excited about the trip.  Create a goodie…

Encouragement:: Be Yourself

 

I have to say…sometimes this blogging world is hard.  Sometimes having your own business is hard.  Sometimes, you rack your brain trying to come up with an original idea only to see that it’s been done 20 different times.  You can feel deflated.
You look at others and think – wow, they are so successful.  I wanna be just like them.  They have so many followers on their blog or they…

Color Crush: Fuchsia

The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are starting to bloom (at least in the Bay Area) and that means Spring is coming.  Bright colors are coming.  I love this vibriant shade of pink.  It pairs so well with other colors…tangerine tango, navy blue, yellow.  You name it – it goes with everything.  If you use this color in a room, it immediately adds brightness to the space.  If you…

West Coast Getaways+A Meeting

This morning I showed you 3 great West Coast Getaway properties.  But what I didn’t tell you is that all 3 of these properties have meeting space.  All of them would be fabulous for small sales meetings or intimate retreats of some sort.
First up Saguaro in Scottsdale, AZ would be perfect for a group that wants to kick up their heels, boots, loafers…whatever.  There is so much nightlife that…
