What I’ve Been Missing In My Life

I didn’t even know it until I saw this article, but a cocktail tower may be the secret to happiness. :)

Yup, there are people in this world who have gorgeous structures on their property expressly for drinking cocktails while watching the sun go down.  I can’t even wrap my brain around this awesomeness, so I’ll just let you take a look:

My Current Beauty Regimen!

I’ve been trying to not only use safer products lately but also be more diligent about my skincare routine. No more lazy gal face wipes to take off (i.e. rub around) my makeup at the end of a long day. I’ve been making sure I take the time, no matter how tired, to properly wash, tone, treat and moisturize. And despite the rogue lone pimple that just appeared (ARGH!!!), I think it’s been helping me skin a lot! Things feel smoother, brighter and way more moisturized; and somehow, the more natural and gentle stuff is making a bigger difference than the strong, chemical stuff!  So I thought I’d share (as well as some super awesome body, hair and makeup finds too!)

Design Detail: Shiplap Walls & Ceilings

Shiplap has been around forever, in fact, it’s more of a historical, period look than anything, however it seems to be making one fierce comeback as of late!  I’ve been seeing so many fabulous modern images of spaces utilizing it on walls, ceilings, in bathrooms, bedrooms, mudroom and kitchens, it no longer is reserved only for older homes.  As I dream of renovating our sunroom into a four season family room, this style of wall and ceiling treatment is in the forefront of my brain!

This laundry room uses it with an amazing result (although that lantern placement is driving me bananas.)

Fashion Friday: Dreaming of Spring

I am SO SO SICK of my Uggs and sweaters and layers. It’s torture to look at all the fabulous spring clothes that are out now which freezing my butt off, so I decided to indulge myself and create some spring outfits I can’t wait to wear! Spring has some trends already trending strong- chunky heeled leather sandals, leather mules, wedges and Birkenstocks, wide leg and flar jeans and pants, stripes everywhere, leather and suede (which will transition well into fall) and the color blue!

I am totally ordering this floral jacket/robe thingy. Adore!  Pair it with these insane bow heels and boyfriend jeans for a cool day to night look.
