Cake Pop and Boardwalk!

After a week of rainy weather spent indoors, our little family spent this Sunday afternoon on the boardwalk eating cake pops and looking at kites! And as I seem to be getting bigger by the day, I am trying to make the most of my time with my little hearts. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Statement Baubles...

Ever since I was a little girl, I would often dream about Jem and the Holograms and the magic of her beautiful earrings. So it comes to no surprise that throughout the years I have collected my very own magical, bauble inspirations. And just like Jem, I somehow take on a new persona with each different gem, one that is completely opposite from the everyday mommy role that is my life. Hope you enjoy my vintage and modern statement baubles!

Pop of Pink!

Although it's not quite February, I already feel like spicing up my winter wardrobe. I especially love pinks during the winter time over the expected earthy colors. Also, my Winter white coat makes a refreshing statement over the typical black basics and the romantic in me feels extra festive wearing the colors of love. When it comes to this year's Valentine's Day, a fresh pop of pink complements my belly pop perfectly!

Oh, How Tweet It Is!

As I look forward to baby twins arrival in early May, I thought I would share my woodland chic inspired baby shower for my first son Easton, "Oh How Tweet It Is!" It was an incredible day where Baby Easton was showered with love and well wishes. It was a celebration of all the things I hold dear, of life, of love, of family, and of friendship. My amazing friends who hosted the event were so thoughtful in allowing me to be part of the creative process, which was incredibly special. I combined my love for birds, crystal, feathers, and frills into a chic motif that was the perfect celebration for my baby boy.

The beautifully designed tabletops complete with white linens, white hydrangeas mixed with green moss, "woodland chic" branch centerpiece, printed menus with handmade crystal details, individual egg soap gift box sets, and personalized place cards for each guest.

This shower had such a fresh, chic vibe and was overflowing with creative details. This motif could easily be adopted for a bridal shower, spring weddings or Easter parties! Some of my favorite design elements included the handmade flower wreath, white hydrangeas, and mossy egg branch table decor.

The amazingly talented Lindsay Parks hosted and photographed the event and did a wonderful job capturing all the beautiful details, expertly planned shower preparations, and also created the cookies in a jar "sweet tweets" favors that each guest took home. (inspiration by Bakerella)
The lunch was really wonderful and prepared by hostess and chef Lillian Monroe.
The food included:
* mixed green salad in Parmesan cups
* caprese salad skewers (grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil with balsamic reduction)
* Italian meatballs
* pasta primavera (zucchini, yellow squash, bell peppers, and tomatoes)
* individual baby bundt cake (chocolate with chocolate glaze)
* champagne and bellinis 

This gorgeous centerpiece was created by gathering wild branches with tiny blooms glued onto them and feather birds adorned on top.

Today, I am sharing my favorite throwback photographs from Instagram! Once again Lindsay Parks has beautifully captured my life and memories.

After the birth of my second son, these sunnies were part of my daily style routine!
Celebrating my 29th birthday at the Ritz with my loved ones!
Before we had our babies, my husband and I were also such babies!
Last January, I celebrated my 1st Blogiversary with this pretty beach photo shoot and what says celebration more than my tulle wedding gown!
The rustic aged feel of  my late father's wooden milk box combined with this incredible new life blends the old and new together harmoniously for my second son Emory's newborn shoot.

It seems like just yesterday that Easton was my chubby little 9 month old:)

Jeans Weather!

Since it finally got chilly this week in South Florida, I thought I would share a casual denim look from last year:)

In the winter time, my favorite jeans finally play a role in my daily wardrobe. This retro-inspired skinny jean in a light '70s wash is pure weekend perfection. Also, a pretty hat is an easy way to stay chic on those tired mommy days. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Coastal Details

Today, I'm taking you all inside my home to give you a little peek at my favorite coastal detail DIY's and my new landscape collection..

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always been drawn to the ocean. There is something so completely intoxicating, calming, and beautiful about the sea. And since I have been blessed enough to live on the beach for the last 6 years, it comes to no surprise that throughout my home, my favorite details reflect the sea and shore. 

As an artist, I love blending natural elements into the everyday. Beautiful shells surround my space and sometimes inhabit a table, mirror, picture frames, desk, chandeliers, and pretty much anywhere else in my home. Pops of color in my paintings are scattered throughout my space as well. I don't mind that my home tells a story, I relish the fact that these details are what makes my house feel like a home.

I hope you find some inspiration for your home from my art and craft projects. You don't really need a set plan with the shell DIY mirrors and frames, but instead a glue gun, shells, and a little bit of patience. 


I think the thing that I love most about this space is that it reflects my personal style so perfectly!
