Recently Pinning: Coffee Break

Recently Pinning: Coffee Break

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning | 3 comments

Guys, I love my coffee. Sometimes iced in summer, always nice and strong, never that sickly sweet pumpkin spice stuff. (Sorry! I’m so sorry. I know so many people are obsessed and I mean no harm, but it’s just not my thing.) Come this time of year I seem to especially love my coffee. As the mornings grow cooler and a bit darker, there is something about that first cup that just sets the whole day up for happiness in …

Recently Pinning: Sweet + Citrus

Recently Pinning: Sweet + Citrus

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning | 3 comments

It has been a little while since I’ve shared what I’ve been collecting and loving over at Pinterest and it dawned on me that today was the perfect day because it appears I’ve been pinning a whole bunch of sweet and citrusy things lately. Loads of fresh spring-inspired recipes. Cocktails infused with blood orange. Flowers, herbs, spring ideas and perfectly dressed deviled eggs. These are all the things that are inspiring me at the moment. If it’s bright, citrus colored …

My apologies for the delayed showing today, guys! I was waiting on a battery adapter for my MacBook Pro to be rushed here overnight after mine decided to take a permanent vacation and quit working. So 24 very fidgety hours with a laptop dead in the water later, I’m popping in this afternoon with yet another dose of color. Bright and springy. Gosh, it’s all I seem to be thinking about this week. Maybe it’s because we’ve actually had a …

Recently Pinning: Elegant Thanksgiving Decor

Recently Pinning: Elegant Thanksgiving Decor

So it turns out that something pretty cool happened this week. Namely, Pinterest gave me an awesome little shout-out in their newsletter as a Pinner to follow for Thanksgiving ideas and inspiration! With a few thousand new Pinterest followers, a big ol’ grin on my face and turkey on the brain (even though I don’t eat meat), you can guess what we’re talking about today. Yep. Thanksgiving. In all of its pie-loving glory. This year I’m finding myself really into …

Recently Pinning: Spooky + Glam Halloween Decorations

Recently Pinning: Spooky + Glam Halloween Decorations

You’ve probably caught on by now that I’m really excited for Halloween this year. Well, in truth, I get really excited for Halloween every year. For the last couple of years I’ve been really drawn to dark, spooky and moody Halloween decorations. That spooky vibe is just so eerily festive, especially when it’s amped up with a touch of glam. Think touches of metallic, loads of candlelight and the occasional frilly embellishment. So if you haven’t figured it out by …

Recently Pinning: Things That Feel Like Fall

Recently Pinning: Things That Feel Like Fall

Written by | filed under Fall, Recently Pinning | 0 comments

Remember how this time a month ago I was that whiney kid complaining about the end of summer? Yeah, well. I’ve turned over a new leaf. Specifically, my fall-loving leaf. I want all the fall things. From big stacks of pancakes to steamy mugs of tea to fresh apple cider, I’ve definitely hit that point in the year where I’m obsessed with the autumn season. Which probably explains why everything fall is making a starring appearance on my Pinterest boards at the …

Recently Pinning: The Littles

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning | 0 comments

Over the last several months I’ve found myself increasingly captivated by really great kids photography. To the extent that I felt the need to start an entire Pinterest board dedicated to the cause. All of these images are from Vancouver based Leuie, a boutique overflowing with the most beautiful kids clothes, accessories and home furnishings. Every single image in their lookbook seems to capture the pure, utter joy of childhood in a way that really just speaks to me. There’s …

Recently Pinning: Moody + Beautiful

Recently Pinning: Moody + Beautiful

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning | 0 comments

Lately I’ve found myself drawn to beautiful, moody photography. Something about the soft, deep colors expresses a quiet that I just love. I also think it has something to do with the time of year. Much as I hate to admit it, the days are quite rapidly growing shorter and the evenings have the slightest of chills that indicates fall is on the way. Frankly, it makes me want to wear flannel shirts, curl up under blankets watching movies and …

Recently Pinning: Beautiful Ballet

Recently Pinning: Beautiful Ballet

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning | 1 comment

It’s not really much of a secret that I am rather obsessed with all things ballet. I’m not sure where it comes from other than I’ve been fascinated with the art of ballet since I was a kid. In my early days wielding a camera, I spent a lot of time photographing ballerinas in and out of the studio and it’s a subject that I still just love. (You can see some of my ballet photography circa 2000 if you’d …

Recently Pinning: Summery + Fruity

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning, Summer | 0 comments

Fresh, fun and fruity colors are clearly my summer obsession at the moment. If it’s bright and punchy, I want to soak up every little bit. I’m working on a project currently where I’m working as many saturated fruit-inspired hues in as I can and I have to say, there’s nothing quite like bright summer colors to make you smile! From decor to food to cocktails, I’m all about the happy. For more summer ideas and loads more I’m seeing …

Recently Pinning: Festive Neutrals

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning | 0 comments

I’m not sure what it is this week, but I’m wild about neutrals at the moment. Maybe it’s this week’s real party features (here and here) that did it? Because both boast the most elegant of neutral color palettes while feeling beautifully festive and full of cheer. I’m also apparently crushing on polka dots and stars. Nothing new there! While usually I love bold, bright and happy pops of color, I have to admit that there’s something undeniably classic and …

Recently Pinning: Feeling Patriotic

Written by | filed under Recently Pinning | 0 comments

I’m not exaggerating even a touch when I say that July 4th is absolutely one of my most favorite days of the year. It’s something about the sunshine, the patriotic swaying of flags and the fireworks. Oh, the fireworks! It’s every bit a magical combination if you ask me. Not surprisingly, my pinning tendencies are falling in line with that love lately. From cool ombre serving spoons for dishing up all those summery salads to the prettiest watercolor drink flags, …
