Daily Inspiration

I’ve fallen off the radar a bit because I’m knee deep in a fun but intense work project. I wanted to share a few things that are keeping me inspired… a sparkling clean and beautiful house, strawberry doughnuts(!), and being a bit of a type nerd. I’ve been listening to some great music that has kept me going too…check out some of my faves below. What are you listening to this week?

Room with a View

I’ve been spending a few nights a week on my rooftop, which has been a great little escape from the city streets below. Last night you could even see the stars! But these lovely images have me yearning for a tiny balcony. A place to grow some flowers and eat perfect little breakfasts while reading the paper. I don’t need a lot of space, just my own little room with a view.

Hey Cupcakes For Breakfast readers, Sarah here from Chevrons & Stripes! Though we’re already almost into August, I’m for one am still stocking up on summer goodies! We try to stretch out the season past September and continue to entertain at our family beach house until the weather officially turns. Here are a few things I’m coveting to continue entertaining in style this summer…

Holiday: Around the Home

Happy Monday friends. Today I’m continuing the gift guides I’ve put off publishing for some time. I could add on to this forever, but here are some gift ideas for the home. I’m obviously loving graphic lettering and touches of gold and pink this year.

This reminds me…I’m way behind on my shopping! How is your shopping going? Anyone done yet?
