It might be because I’m long overdue for a tropical vacation, but all I can think about lately are all the incredible resorts on my dream getaway list. And how much I could go for a week of room service while cozied up in a plush bathrobe on my private balcony overlooking crystal blue waters. Anyone else?
While it’s not possible for me to fly across the world to some fancy island bungalow right now, it is possible to channel some of those vacation vibes in my Atlanta space. Read More →
I’ve been hoarding a handful of candles that I burned out to the end of their wicks, but couldn’t bring myself to throw them away because I loved the containers they came in too much. Has this happened to anyone else or I’m just a bonafide hoarder at this point?
So, today I’m sharing a clever way you can reuse those precious candle containers for something entirely new… All the planters in that photo above are actually old candle containers turned cool planters. The process for removing the wax / wicks and converting them to planters is really easy too, so I’m sharing the tutorial today.

Using a simple basket (nearly any basket will work), you can create a super cute summer bag that is totally on trend.
Inspired by these bags from Clare V that I literally have been seeing everywhere lately, I wanted to create a bag that wouldn’t break the bank, but would mimic this look. After a little trial and error, I came up with this quick and easy tutorial. And you’ll only need a few supplies to make your own!
Pinterest has called sage the new neutral of 2018 and I’m really curious to know your take on this color trend?!
Sage is an interesting pick for a ‘neutral’ since its somewhere between a true neutral and a bold color pop. And I’m finding that it’s easy to incorporate into pretty much any home style, which is a check for the pros column. It works for modern homes, Scandinavian abodes, more traditional styles, craftsman, etc.
I’ve been spending more and more time outdoors at home, which I mentioned last week too. And it’s definitely been the motivation I needed to get some of our outdoor spaces decorated and ready to enjoy.
To make things easy, I started with the smaller of the outdoor spaces – our upstairs balcony – so I could check another ‘room’ off the list quick AND solve a problem that we had with the space at the same time.
