stay in, do crafts. 

Sometimes going outside when it’s hot is nice. Sometimes it’s not. On those “not” instances, I’m a fan of a good DIY,  and these door tassels have the best pop of color and pizzazz for spring vibes.

I'll be sharing one of my favorite cocktails this week (pulling it from the 2016 archives), but find this one to be serious inspo -- green drinks and refreshing to boot? Count me in. The real question is: will this make me like gin finally? 

this airy look

I love the messy bun juxtaposed with the pulled together silks and jewelry. It looks cool, relaxed, and everything you'd want for a cocktail hour outside or date night.

no bake meals

do. not. turn. the. oven. on. just don't do it. Instead, slice some veggies, throw down some grapes, and go crazy with the dips and cheese for a meal you'll want to have on repeat but won't leave you fanning your face to enjoy. 



Get your slow flow on or use the heat to boost your sweat game -- when it comes to yoga, you really can't go wrong.

Have a great week. Xx.

I know I don't need to tell you again how real the love of champagne is over here, but just in case you forgot, these 10 quotes will have you going to pick up some bubbly and toasting the greats.

I've been dreaming of a bar cart for too darn long -- re: the dozens upon dozens of setups I've pinned. Seeing this bold lip print and pineapple, along with the pops of pink, has me utterly convinced I need to redesign my apartment ASAP. Also, that bottle holder *heart eyes*. When sad, try to dream a little, even if it's about bar carts.


orange turmeric margs

When I'm sad, I spend time planning parties -- weddings for my friends, my best friend's birthday bashes, cozy dinner parties. Sometimes, I create them around cocktail recipes. This recipe makes me think of a simple Saturday afternoon with girlfriends. Mix up a batch of these margaritas to go with some mango pineapple salsa, blue corn tortilla chips, and a playlist that has you wanting to dance. Decorations not required. 

finding art

some days, disappearing into a world someone else has created is the only way to survive -- whether that be in novels, poetry, or art. I've found myself drawn to art created for short poetry, and they usually look like errant emotions someone has pulled all together and stored for safe keeping on a page. 

buy a plant

sometimes you need to be in charge of something's life to make you feel like living. A plant that is hard to kill, purifies the air, and doesn't need anything more than water seems like a great start. I got mine here

Mental Health Weekly Inspiration

Mental health is important. This week, we're trying to take care of ourselves and thought you might need to also. Xx. 


all the books

sometimes the best way to escape is curled under a blanket, sucked into a new book. this one is filled with wonderful intrigue and twists - plus it's written so well. 

self-confidence boost

sometimes when you're at your lowest, it's hard to remember you've got all the right things going for you. here's a great reminder. 


this ice cream

when all else fails, sometimes you just need ice cream. chocolate chip ice cream. make a big bowl, watch your favorite movie, and go back to bed. 

try working out

maybe a full trip to the gym is just too much. try this exercise schedule to elevate those endorphins and boost your strength. 

this look

casual and stylish. dressing can be hard when you're struggling with depression. throw this on, and get yourself doing something, like going to the farmers market, for a change of scenery and a mood lift.
