Fun Etsy Finds

In my search for nursery decor, I came across some really adorable prints on Etsy.

Bibitty French Alphabet Poster

I can't remember which blog I first saw this poster on, but it is tres adorable!  So happy that I saved the link - because I bought the last one!

Sugarfresh's "You are My Sunshine"

My mom use to sing this song to me as a child - this would be great in any room, not just a nursery.

Mosieposies' Birth Prints

I love how clean and modern these look. Also a great gift to give after the baby arrives!

Keep Calm Shop

And the infamous "Keep Calm" poster - this shop has it available in all of these fabulous colors!! You can order the traditional one, or a funnier version......I like the one below.....might come in handy after the baby comes!!


Breaking News!!

Print by Couture Pints on Etsy

My husband and I just found out we are having a baby GIRL!!! Yes, we are officially having a baby. Not that this is an excuse for being a bad blogger, I'm just a wee bit distracted. I'm sure you understand!

So of course the first thing I did was plan the nursery. Since we live by the water, I wanted it to have a slight beachy vibe without being too "themey." Check out my initial inspiration board. More details to come!! Oh and yes, we are naming her Olivia, Olivia Jane :)


Merry Christmas Darlings

Where has the time gone? This week I'll be busy trying to do everything I should have done these past few weeks, like.....

 Picking up last minute gifts........

Wrapping them in my chosen color scheme for the season.....

 Baking festive cookies for my family..........(pic from one of my favorite blogs - Cupcakes and Cashmere)

And setting up my table for Christmas Eve, so inspired by this gorgeous and geographically appropriate tablescape (as seen on Hostess with the Mostess)

See you next year!!!


Gift Giving Idea #2

'Tis the season for Holiday Parties!! What to give the Hostess with the Mostess? Flowers - they die. Wine - thoughtless. Candle - Boring!!! Monogrammed Glass Coaster? - CHIC!!!

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas.........

It may not snow here in LA, but all I need to make my home feel festive is a little fur, some bubbles and a whole lot of sparkle.   Here is some inspiration!

Hello, My Name is Kelly....and I'm a Stripe-o-holic

Yes, by now I'm sure you already own a striped tee. If you are anything like me, you may even have more like 10 hanging in your closet. I admit I can't walk out of J. Crew without their latest version. But do you own striped loungewear? Ha!! I thought not.........

You must order this ASAP. They are the softest, comfiest things ever. And sleeping in an old t-shirt and 10-year-old Juicy velour sweats is just not an option anymore.


Gift Giving Idea #1

Happy Halloween!!! You know what that means.....only 54 days left until Christmas! (I think, haha) If you want to get a head start on your holiday shopping, click over to Linda & Harriett. They have the most adorable 2011 calendar any gal would love. At $30, it's a gift that is both chic and economical! You can even buy one for yourself and not feel guilty (like we would ever feel guilty!).


Comfortably Chic

Don't get me wrong, I love my high heels! But more and more often, you will see me in flats. While I rarely go a season without a new Miu Miu pair (my favorite!), I've been wearing my Sue Londons almost daily. Sue London ballet flats are seriously the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn! There is absolutely no need to drop $600 on plain Lanvin flats when you can snatch a pair of these for under $200.

Yes, they even have them for your mini-me! How cute are these?

Bohemian Bathroom

Yes, I've been M.I.A. No, I didn't give up on the blog, it's just been a crazy summer. Between my home being turned into a B&B (my fault for living @ the beach) and traveling for work, I've been a mad woman.

But one fun thing I do have to share, is that I've begun helping my friends update their home decor. Interior Design is something I've dreamed about pursuing for EVER and I'm finally beginning to do it! I wanted to share my inspiration board of a bathroom update that I'm doing for my friend Heather....

Stay tuned for before and after!! It's so easy to update your own space with just a few fun accessories!
