Oscar de la Renta



I started a post a while back about this article on Mr. de la Renta and his home in Kent, Connecticut. As a person who hopes to one day have a beautiful garden, I found his process of learning to garden through trial and error inspiring. A truly talented man that will be greatly missed.

The Hills ARE alive

It is no secret that the Sound of Music is my all-time favorite movie. I probably still know every song from watching it constantly as a child, so imagine my reaction to learning that Chanel, my all-time favorite fashion label, will be presenting the the next collection in Austria at the house used in the Sound of Music...BEST DAY EVER!!!

Gallery walls

I am obsessed with gallery walls. I have been working on several in our house, but they are all pretty sad looking at the moment, so I am not sharing any personal photos. 

However, below are three images that have inspired me to make some serious progress on my own gallery wall.

Black kitchen cabinets

This just came into my inbox...the 2014 Kitchen of the Year in House Beautiful designed by Steven Miller. Surprisingly I'm loving that Miller mixed it up and went for black cabinets with white counter tops. There is a crispness that the black creates that makes me want to go paint something black!

73 QUESTIONS

Vogue videos has started an online series titled “73 Questions” where they ask an individual 73 questions rapid fire and I am obsessed! I highly recommend both the videos of Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively

And then they get Anna Wintour to participate and I think I just died. IT IS AMAZING!

the why



Blake Lively is on the cover of the August issue of Vogue and I have always been a fan of hers.

This quote from the editorial jumped out at me, “But something’s shifted. People want to get back to the magic of smaller, special, and handmade. We grew up getting every bit of information we needed instantly. So we want to know the backstory; we want to know why something is the way it is.”


I find this to be incredibly true and find myself researching all sorts of topics lately. Mostly causing me to be annoying about all natural and organic items.

Lively's new website launched yesterday...so far I think it is pretty awesome. Check it out here: http://preserve.us/

kickin monday's butt

Not sure why, but I woke up full of energy this morning and told Joe I was ready to kick this Monday's butt.

+Finally picked up the July Elle Magazine yesterday.
I'm pretty sure Anna Kendrick and I would be best friends. This editorial is fantastic and very funny!


+I discovered this kitchen from "Project Holly" on Peppermint Bliss and fell in love. This is exactly what I would like my kitchen to look like...one day.




+I am finding Gardenista to be very inspiring lately with all of the gardening and yardwork we have been doing. I have also been wanting to paint our house white since we bought it and even though it may not happen this year, I have settled on the white used below. BM Swiss Coffee. Perfection. Here is a link to a great article on exterior whites.

back for real this time

I have debated doing away with this whole blogging thing several times now and I just haven’t, even though I have been on quite the hiatus. This time I think I am back for good, because I need some inspiration and the distraction.

I plan on sharing lots of inspiring pictures of fashion, interiors, gardens, recipes, and even maybe a few diy projects.

These are the things that I cannot stop thinking about right now:…

+Anna Wintour's Top 5 Pieces of Career Advice. I think Tip 4 is a big one, you can't just sit around waiting for the perfect job to fall in your lap!

+This Interior Design magazine spread of the Mad Men set. I am just obsessed with the design of all of the spaces on the show and love that they were able to get these pictures of the actual set. So cool.






+This amazing Atlanta vegetable garden and chicken coop in Southern Living. We are getting ready to start our own vegetable garden and I can only hope mine looks half as beautiful as this one. More on that later.






+Giada’s Penne with Sundried Tomato Pesto. I love pesto and sundried tomatoes, but this just blew me away. It is a thick pesto, but so good. The pesto itself would be delicious on a cracker with a little parmesan on top as an appetizer.
