Happy Monday! Glad to be back at my desk chair after taking an unscheduled week off from blogging. I got super sick over the long weekend and was still recuperating by Wednesday. With a to-do list of freelance work that was as long as my leg, the blog was the last thing on my list. It happens. It felt good to take a break (despite feeling like shit) and re-evaluate some creative writing projects I am working on.
Something about those pinks mixed with a dark earthy green or brown is just SO good. I feel like I am being whisked away into an old motel in Palm Springs or visiting some beautiful 77-year old on her birthday and we are celebrating with the most beautiful long and skinny candlesticks and eating all sorts of treats from her youth. Just diggin’ that palette…

Happy Valentine’s Day, lovers. Okay, we’ve got just under two weeks until we all overdose on cinnamon hearts but here I am, already in the spirit! I’ve been scouring Etsy trying to find the best, most beautiful gifts for both him and for her. Well, browsing on Etsy will never leave you empty-handed and I’ve come up with some real winners that will knock the socks off your beau. Show them that you care by giving her a gorgeous print for her wall and treat him with a handsome leather satchel for his bicycle – or vice versa! Whatever you find, you know that it will be vintage or artist-made – which makes every gift that much more special. In celebration of that, let’s say I love you with Etsy this year! Also, be sure to scroll down to the bottom for the awesome giveaway that I’ve teamed up on with Etsy Canada and The Smitten Collection – all for one lucky winner!

Absolutely smitten with the styling of this dream space. The dipped table legs, the cityscape-esque wall treatment – right down to the precious textured mixing bowls. And how could I resist the DREAM neon sign? You can’t not have lovely dreams in this clean and bright space. Gorgeous.
