Weekend Notes

So far, this weekend has been absolutely perfect. We’re hosting our cousins who are visiting from England, and there’s nothing like out-of-town guests to make you hit the pause button on work and other commitments and take a little vacation yourself. After a morning hike and trip to the farmer’s market yesterday, we spent the… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Coast to Coast

It’s that time of year again…when temperatures start to climb just enough to spur dreams of summer sunshine, and a little sand in between your toes while cradling a piña colada (or two). So, as I ditch my winter coats and recover my favorite pair of flip-flops from the (very) bottom of my closet, I can’t… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: On The Boardwalk

Something many people don’t know about me: I have a mild obsession with carnivals. Though there’s never a bad time of year to head out for a day at the fair, when you combine the rickety rides & the oh-so-yummy foods with blazing hot weather and a beach, you’ve got a sure-fire recipe for the… read more

My Life, Styled :: To The Beach and Beyond

When it comes to the perfect summer day, it’s hard to beat the calm and relaxation of a day at the beach…am I right?  Now that summer is in full swing, I’m constantly looking for a reason to bury my toes in the sandy shore, and this little afternoon at Zuma Beach was just what… read more

Bring it Home :: Picnic on the Beach

When the sun is shining, I (Cristina) prefer to eat my meals al fresco…preferably with a view. So for this edition of Bring it Home, we’re packing it up and moving our interior inspiration to the beach! While Austin isn’t technically a coastal town, we’re blessed with our fair share of watering holes, and summer… read more

Dressed in White

I love that it’s become so accepted for today’s weddings to be whimsical, quirky, overflowing with color and downright fun bashes that reflect the couple’s individuality…but sometimes, there’s nothing more stunning than an all-white wedding with classic, pretty details, don’t you think? This Australian bayside wedding (spotted on Once Wed) is as fresh and simple as… read more

Pretty Simple :: Tough Summer Tresses

Alright ladies, today’s installment of Pretty Simple is nothing short of a life saver, and while it may be a few years too late for my lifeguarding days, it’s here just in time for the summer. There’s no question that our hair takes a serious beating between June and September each year from being soaked… read more

Rock of Love

What is it about this escort card display that makes my hear pitter-patter? The smooth, earthy stones with white script…the natural sandy setting…and the way all the pieces come together to form the universal symbol of love? I think it’s genius, and the rest of this rehearsal dinner is full of equally-original details. Hop over… read more

Bienvenido a Miami

Chanel, here! And I’m so excited to be heading out to Miami tomorrow to meet up with some close girlfriends from the UK. Of course I’m going through the mania of what to pack… I don’t want to take too much, but I don’t want to find myself wishing I’d packed something in particular, etc.… read more

What Shade is Your Soirée? {5.13}

Lately I’ve been unusually drawn to an indigo and pure white color combo.  Maybe its the fact that I’m dying for a vacation, or that I have always wanted to travel to the Greek Island of Santorini.  Either way, I’m totally craving this crisp and clean color marriage.  It feels so breezy and sunny.  Take… read more
