la la loving mokkasin home

Mokkasin’s home.  Always and forever.  This home is def one of my all time favorites.  It’s Scandi and collected.  Loving the updated and newly styled images as seen on Design Sponge.


the reminders, that just keep coming, to continue to remember what a gift TODAY is.

la la loving sally england

Sally England, everything!

la la loving long sweaters for spring

long sweaters for spring.  You know, so I don’t have to wear my robe around, anymore.

la la loving banana pudding

this banana pudding recipe from pretty simple sweet.  Because, all I ever make is chocolate, everything.  Bananas are my next best.  And, banana pudding = comfort in a cup.

shelves.  i love to see what people stack (thus my shelve it board).  these open shelves with pastels piled just right, as seen on sfgirlbybay are so pretty.


being still.  deep breaths.  and move on, again.


berry smoothie bowls.  i’m still stuck on smoothies in a glass, but….bowls.  if you haven’t you should.  i told my kids it was dessert (even mixed some spinach in) and they dove right in.


sienna miller.  her style.  her hair.  and, she said in Vogue, instagram fueled the worst part of her soul — she lasted on it for only 5 days and continued on to say that ultimately it leaves you incredibly lonely.  seems like such a discussion.  i’ve shard my feelings about how we are disconnectedly connecting and erin’s post, this past week, on this whole internet thing was written so beautifully (please read, you’ll be glad you did).

a pink playroom with a marble esque floating desktop.  i’m crushing on this pink, throughout, dutch home.


disney donuts created by forktobelly.  these are so darling, i almost wouldn’t want to eat them.


no chance toasty pants.  our current fave kids book.  it’s for anyone who’s ever wondered, “am i good at anything” and tells the story of trying new things.  we love having a copy on our iPad.

la la loving cloud art

making cloud art.


a skateboard toilet paper holder.  fun DIY idea for boys.

hallways.   i love a good hallway, especially lived in ones.  they lead to anywhere and everywhere.


just a thought that i was thinking yesterday.  hate sounds like such a strong word to own.  Yes?  Perhaps you don’t hate others, but maybe find yourself hating on their work or even battling thoughts of hating on yourself.  Hate gets you no where.  Creating can open doors to anywhere.  Create your own work to be proud of.  And, best of all, create the life you’ve always dreamed of.


the new Susan Ziptop Crossbody by FashionAble.  I’ve been searching for the perfect black crossbody bag and I have found it.  Not only beautiful in product but mission.  LiveFashionable provides opportunities for women in Africa to be ABLE to live better lives.

pressed-flowers_la-la-lovely pressed flowers.  Do you ever press flowers in a book?  I’ve never really done it with intention, but there have been times that I have picked up a flower or some type of foliage while being outside and used it as a bookmark.  In fact, I have an almost 20 year old flower from Africa, still pressed in an old Bible that I had with me on that trip.  I love opening the page that I marked for a reason and having a tangible piece of beauty from another land and another time.

la la loving house desk

it’s no secret i love a good house bed….and now, i’m on to house desks.  wouldn’t this make homework or work so much better?


this quote that was a print.  some of us are trying to avoid ordinary life.  some of us trying to find it.  some of us trying to live fully in it.

la la loving raw choclate-pudding

raw chocolate pudding made with avocados.  can’t wait to make this  from clean slate by martha stewart.  all of the chocolate concoctions look so good.


i’m still loving the copper DIY trend.  maybe it’s because i haven’t made anything yet?  annabode has a round up of all the bests, if you’d like to create with copper.
