Pretty Spaces: Design Inspo


Whether it's designing a new space in your home, updating a room, or getting dressed for the day, style inspiration can come from anywhere. For quite awhile now I have been finding lots of inspo from pretty spaces, rooms, or locations I find on Pinterest. Today, I wanted to show you inspiration I found in home decor photos. I hope these beautiful photos inspire you in some way but if not, at least you got to see some beautiful designs!

Cabo Recap

I'm sorry this post has taken me so long to write. My husband and I visited Cabo at the end of April and we had the most wonderful trip (and took so many beautiful photos). It was my first time in this part of Mexico and I have to tell you, it was wonderful. Cabo was a blast you guys. I had a fucking blast! 

Lately I feel like I need new angle or something for every single post to help get my engagement up. Titles that grab you like: "The top three spots to eat in Cabo" or "must-stop places to visit in Cabo", ......both fun to read but not what I want to write. Mostly because I've only been there once and don't feel like I could tell you the top spots! Honestly, I was in Cabo as my husband's guest for a work trip. We were put up at the beautiful Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and I was able to attend two, 5 star dinners away from our hotel with associates. What a treat!

We were also taken on a catamaran ride through the Sea of Cortez. This might have been my favorite day there, it was absolutely amazing! All of the places we went were amazing. But this is what I did. So, instead of writing this post with any angle at all, here are a few of my favorite places I went and photos I took. I'll tag info below photo if you'll be in Cabo and want to check it out.

My Style Monday: Summer Essentials

The summer season is upon us and I find myself gravitating toward easy summer essentials for everyday wear. There are so many textures and fabrics that call out to me during these months, but linen is by far my go-to summer essential. Sure, it gets wrinkly. It really, really does! And I don't iron that much so linen and I do have a love-hate relationship. That said, I love how I feel when I wear it. It's breathable, comfortable, and can usually be found as an option in any number of your favorite go-to wardrobe staple pieces.

Backyard Remodel: Deck Upgrade

Hello my beautiful friends, I hope your week is off to a great start. With the holiday this past Monday, I've got my days all messed up. That said, this week seems to be flying by. I wanted to catch you guys up on a bit of a remodel that started back in April. These photos were actually taken the first week of April, so that is why the grass is not green yet. There will be a follow up post to this one with how we decorated the deck and you better believe with all the rain we are getting here in the Midwest  that the grass is beyond green and lush. Probably the best part of the rain actually! ;) OK, back to our deck remodel. 

We have lived in our home for three years now (well, three years in early June) and we always went back and forth on if we wanted a deck or patio. Prior to this, our backyard was a place our kids played. A place that in a pinch we could fit a chair or two on the deck but if we wanted to be out back, we would have to set chairs up in the grass. That worked fine for two years! My ankles would get itchy and I wouldn't stay out too long, but it worked. Here is a look at the original deck that came with our home.
