On My Mind || Spring and other little treasures

March 20, 2014



Happy Spring! It's official.  Warmer temperatures and longer days are ahead, guaranteed!  Spring always re-energizes and inspires me in so many ways.  I want to eat lighter and healthier, organize everything, start a million projects that have been jotted down in my brainstorming notebook....so let's get started!

 One ||  Spring is here.  Do it.

Two ||  Sara from A Dose of Pretty, who serves more than a dose of pretty every day on her blog- it's more like a ton of pretty, featured me on her 'Mommies behind the Blog'.  I love the series because it highlights some incredible ladies, like Sara herself, who balances motherhood, jobs, home-life, kids, and blogging.  Sara's blog is a must-read for me and she is one of my favorite instagrammers- each shot is prettier than the next.  You just want to go and shadow her for the day.  Follow her here.  And to prove her good taste she discovered this top here. Gahhh....I think we all need it.  It makes me want to jump off my seat and fly to Anthro this second.  Sara is also a fab blog designer and photographer.  Can we say well rounded?

Three ||  My jeweler friend (who will soon open an etsy store, you will love everything she does) and I are going to attempt  to do this DIY (thank you APOT for keeping us in the know).  We are so excited we can't wait as we both love pearls.  I will report back with the finished results.

Four ||  A model who was living in New York needs to move to LA for her job (boohoo) and is selling all her amazing furniture (yeay!).  Read more about her apartment here and buy pieces like that amazing etagere here. Trust me. It is all GOOD.

Five || These tumblers are the perfect glassware update.  Get them in all kinds of colors for a pretty and happy Springy tablescape.  And they are only $2.95!

Six ||  This book is so cute and fun.  Really it is the perfect gift for that friend who loves making things (or for yourself!).  The DIYs are inspired, easy and quick.  Some are perfect to do with kids as well.  It is ideal to have during a rainy day situation.  Buy it here.
