Loving a Lakeside Summer Vacation

Loving a Lakeside Summer Vacation

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Summer | 4 comments

I’m not sure if it’s being sick this week or just a serious need for a vacation, but this week all I can think about is running away to a little lakeside cabin in the woods. The perfect summer vacation in my book consists of long, lazy lakeside days spent swimming from the dock, reading books, making s’mores and cooking dinner over the campfire. Late afternoon walks before dinner, maybe a cat nap or two. The weather this week has …

Loving Spring Planters

Loving Spring Planters

Written by | filed under Currently Loving | 4 comments

Any day now I’m going to stop complaining about the snow. Seriously. I promise. Any day now. In an effort to make today that day, can we talk about these gorgeous DIY planters? They’re cropping up everywhere and I’ve seen so many that I absolutely love. From hanging planters to pretty little gems that will dress up your desk or bookshelf with just the right amount of sparkle and greenery, these planters are simple enough for even the most novice …

Loving Kids Rooms

Loving Kids Rooms

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Living | 3 comments

Lately I’ve been finding myself really seriously inspired by kids rooms. Specifically of the beautiful, modern and largely neutral-hued variety. Whether it be with Scandinavian inspired black and white or bright white walls with subtle pops of juicy color, I find these rooms to be so much more sophisticated than the primary colored kids rooms of yore, while still retaining a certain charm and nostalgia that I find irresistible. Think of these rooms like a beautiful canvas just begging for …

Loving Neon Pumpkins

Loving Neon Pumpkins

As we ease our way into Halloween and the fall holiday season, I’m finding myself falling in love with brightly colored neon pumpkins, which were a huge trend last fall. It’s such a fun way to add a splash of festive seasonal cheer to your home or front porch without diving headfirst into the classic autumnal shades of brown, red, orange and gold. Whether they be big orange pumpkins or tiny little white gourds, every squash you can think of …

Loving Indigo

Loving Indigo

Written by | filed under Currently Loving | 1 comment

I’ve been in love with moody hues of indigo for the longest time. Years, in fact. (Evidence here from 2+ years ago.) So I am loving that the indigo color is making a major comeback at the moment. Although, is indigo ever really out of style? I vote no. I think I love indigo because it’s somehow modern, classic, romantic and sultry all at the same time. Indigo is having such a moment right now and I am wild about …

Loving A Lobster Boil

Loving A Lobster Boil

Lobster boils, clam bakes, seafood boils – I’m obsessed! (I’ve mentioned this before, I know I know.) Lately though, I’m really hurting for a classic Maine lobster boil. I want the bib, the salt potatoes dripping in butter, the blueberry cobbler to finish it all off. I will tell you that lobster is my favorite food in the entire world other than ice cream. Give me the two of them together in one meal? Holy cannoli. That’s my kind of …

Loving Rhubarb

Loving Rhubarb

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Eats + Sweets, Recipes | 2 comments

Surely I’m not alone in noticing all of the rhubarb recipes cropping up basically everywhere at the moment, am I? Rhubarb is kind of the queen of summer ingredients if you ask me and made into cakes, pies and crisps it’s utterly delicious. Of course, rhubarb goes perfectly with strawberry, another of my favorite seasonal flavors, but have you ever tried it in a cocktail? Or paired with ginger? Neither have I! But now I’m thinking I’m going to have …

Loving Churros + Chocolate

Loving Churros + Chocolate

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Eats + Sweets | 4 comments

Guys. Something ridiculous is happening. And by “ridiculous” I mean positively splendiferous. Churros. They’re single handedly taking over the world. They’re fighting crime. They’re fixing the ozone. They’re making people smile. And holy heck they’re everywhere right now! I love churros. With rich, decadent chocolate, they’re like some kind of heaven that I’m sure we’re going to find out is illegal at some point. I’m warning you. This post is not for the faint of heart. You’re going to be drooling …

Loving Black White + Graphic

Loving Black White + Graphic

Written by | filed under Currently Loving | 7 comments

Over the past few years I’ve had a growing love affair with the chic, effortless look of all black and white design. Paired with a bold punch of graphic pattern? Well then you can consider me in design heaven. There’s something about this look that reads both fiercely modern and quietly classic. A flowing white dress studded with black polka dots, the perfect white typography set against black, Easter eggs decked out in good ol’ black Sharpie marker. It sincerely …

Loving Simple Cakes

Loving Simple Cakes

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Eats + Sweets | 7 comments

For the longest time I’ve had a thing for really simple, but supremely tasty cakes. As a kid my mom always made a white cake speckled with sliced strawberries and covered heartily in homemade whipped cream in lieu of frosting each year for my birthday. No intricate design, no artificially colored decorations or fondants, and just as perfect as a cake comes, in my book. In college I adapted a page from my mom’s book, making homemade cakes for friends’ …

Loving Gold Table Settings

Loving Gold Table Settings

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Dining + Tabletop | 8 comments

Lately I’ve really been loving gorgeous table settings, in particular those that boast stunning golden details. There is just something so timeless and glamorous about gold flatware and gold-dipped glasses, don’t you think? What I love about this look is that it can go completely glam or just add a soft bit of shimmery sheen to a more rustic setting. I think it’s particularly perfect for winter! Naturally this look would be stunning at  a wedding, but let’s talk about …
