West Elm is currently having a 25% off sale sitewide with code: SALE25, and it ends tonight.

Here are my top picks for what to buy (pssst…they are all on sale already so you can get a double discount)…

8 Whimsical Wedding Gift Wraps

Ahh…’tis the season for weddings. I have three to attend in the next few months, and I’m sure I’m not alone in this. As I get older, the number of weddings seems to grow soon followed by the number of baby showers…ha! In honor of this wedding season (and later baby shower season), I thought it wise to do some gift wrap searching (sometimes I like the gift wrap more than the gift ha!).

Here are some lovely and whimsical gift wrapping papers I found…

Lovely Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

It’s May! One of my favorite months of the year. May for me means the beginning of Spring, my birthday, and…Mother’s Day.

My mother. My mother does not like gifts (or so she says). She doesn’t really have any hobbies, and spends most of her time working 80 hours a week (yup, hard working immigrant, who creates American jobs, by the way). She doesn’t like candles, or wine, or “spa” stuff. If she were a friend, I’d probably gift her cash, but she’s my mother, so that would be…weird. What have my brother and I been sending her all these years on Mother’s Day?

Well, whether you’re on a starving artist’s salary or a little bit more comfortable than that (I’ve been both), here are some sweet ways to show your appreciation…

8 Beautiful Wallpapers for Le Bathroom

I’ve really been into that decor trend where you only wallpaper one wall of a room. I love that it adds color and personality without it being “too much” or taking up any space. AND, since it’s only one wall, you can be a little more daring with the patterns and colors. Fun fun.

The smallest space in my apartment is my bathroom. Because of its small space, there isn’t much I can fit in there. SO, I figured, wallpapering would be the perfect solution to give it some spice. Here are some beauties I’ve found to beautify le bathroom…(p.s. how amazing are removable wallpapers?!)…

Apartment Hunt: Stylish Rocking Chairs

I live in a 500 square feet apartment so every piece of furniture matters and adds enormously to the vibe of the space. Since I don’t have a ton of space, I’m constantly looking for furniture that’s not only functional, but stylish.

This is why I’ve really been into rocking chairs recently. They add style, ambiance, and a bit of fun to a room. And, based on these designs, we can definitely see that they are no longer just patio furniture or for nurseries…

Easy, Cool Greeting Card App


Does anyone else struggle with long distance relationships? And I mean, not just romantic ones, but friendships, too. All of my closest friends have scattered across the country, and due to my traveling days, I have friends all over the world. I find it difficult to remember to send a gift or card for birthdays, special occasions, or even holidays. Due to an unpredictable schedule, there are easily times I put it off and completely forget! This is why when I found the app Ink, I was THRILLED.

It’s an app that allows you to design your own postcards and greeting cards, and send it directly from your phone. It has a user-friendly interface with enough cool designs so it’s interesting, but not so many that it’s overwhelming. Depending on the type of card, it costs anywhere from $1.99 to $4.99. Easy. Convenient. Affordable. AND Pretty. Hooked!

For those part of the Women’s March movement, they have an awesome Women’s March Template. I used it today and it is incredibly easy to send a postcard to your Congressperson. In this political climate, the faster and easier the letter the better, amirigh?
