To me macaroons are the flour-less pastries eaten during Passover. BUT, macaroons have become the hippest, chicest pastry used for more than just eating. When a pastry is used for colorwheels and paint chips, they have officially become fabulous. There are unlimited color options for these little mouth-watering darlings and I am officially obsessed. If you need a last minute gift throw some random colored roons into a paper box, tie a bow around it and Voila! Read & drool!

Make any season look good with your favorite hobby and accessory. Round glasses and a surfboard, lace bustier in the flower mart, a sundress in the rain (with your favorite paper umbrella, of course), a worn leather jacket while riding a beach cruiser, a red tambourine and maxi skirt….the list goes on. The point is, be FREE to dress and do what you LOVE!
I want a drink cart so badly but can’t seem to find one that I MUST have. Without trying to be too modern, I would LOVE to own a Lucite one. However, I know the second it arrives I know I’ll be wondering about the wooden options. I guess I just need to obsess a little longer about cart options before committing. In the meantime, enjoy…..cheers!
It is officially spring! I know I am a little late but I get so excited knowing that great weather is just a few short weeks away. Although this weekend is unusually gloomy (Happy St. Patrick’s Day BTW!!), I put this pajama weather to use and went through all my planned DIY projects. I have so many to share I hope you are ready to be overloaded with ideas. Typically when the sunny California weather is here I try to find as many reasons to have parties, entertain, or just beautify things. I have compiled some pretty amazing projects over the winter that have been stored, patiently waiting to be brought to life! Take look and steal….share your favorite projects with me, as I am ALWAYS on the hunt for creative ways to keep life pretty.
I know this last one isn’t really DIY, but how sweet is this? Such a simple gesture that not only looks beautiful, but is romantic and thoughtful…even if you are just hanging out with your best girlfriends
Yellow is fresh squeezed lemonade, lemon cake, sunshine, blonde hair, citrus, happiness. While the color actually has the ability to induce a positive energy with a splash of its hue in a room, the clean pop of color is chic and versatile. If you are too scared to go for lemon tart yellow, start with a more muted version in tonal mustard. It can be mixed with basically ANYTHING, believe it or not, such as black, white, grey, pink, blue, red, etc.
Yes, I know I often post about pink accents but I just can’t help it. Especially with Pintrest in full swing, it is just impossible not to fall in love with pink coated shipping boxes among other pink items. I guess I am just partial to pop colors in general. Today, however, is all about the pink!!!
