Zebra Love

I remember thinking zebra print was IT... back in the 5th grade. And then it was cool again in 9th grade... or so I think. Well guess flippin' what! Zebra has become cool in my book again.. and apparently the book of many other interior designers out there! Hopefully, it's here to stay. Hooray! 

Here are some photos of beautiful interiors with hints of zebra mixed in here and there. Enjoy

Budget Friendly Buys!

So, I gathered up a bunch of fabulous finds on the cheap for you! I'm trying to save $ right now so I can buy some bigger ticket items (ahem, cough, cough) but that doesn't mean I can't live... just... a... little, right!?

I am definitely buying the ASOS spike bracelets, wrap claw ring and cross bracelet. I mean, at these prices, it's hard not to, right? I just found out that ASOS, where many of these items are from, ships both ways FREE! That's unheard of!

Hooray for cheap thrills!

Current Obsession // Jayson Home Again...

I couldn't help myself... Jayson Home is so fabulous I had to share it again as my Weekly Obsession. How A-M-A-Z-I-N-G are these pieces!? I can just imagine these pieces all housed in an ultra luxe reading nook or chic dining room. I'll say it again, if you haven't visited online retailer Jayson Home yet, get on it! 

What is erveyone's plans for the weekend? Considering the mild weather in San Diego (76 degrees), I decided I want more heat! It's summer, isn't it! I WANT HEAT! So a few friends and I are heading to Arizona where the sun can make sweet, sweet love to this white, white skin of mine! SO looking forward to spending some time at Havasu River with some tasty buds, lots of junkety junk food and a few close friends. Hope you all have an exceptional weekend whatever it is you end up doing :)

Have you heard of Joy the Baker? She is an amazing chef blogger who prepares and photographs the most delicious looking food! I've tried and adapted several of her recipes including my Sun Dried Tomato, Spinach and Cheese Ravioli from THIS RECIPE of Joy's and I'm yet to be disappointed. 

Her blog is beautifully put together and her directions are filled with the perfect mix of informative and funny. And did I mention the photos? The photos will induce serious mouth-watering!

Bar Essentials

I LOVE entertaining and what is a party without a great cocktail in hand? I have a tall dark wood and mirrored bar cabinet from Z Gallerie that I am just in love with. I have it decorated with lots of fun straws, pretty liquor bottles and family heirloom barware. It's one of my favorite pieces of furniture. Here is my guide to stocking the perfect bar. Bottom's up!

Mirror Image

I am and have always been in love with mirrored furniture. not only does it make your space look bigger, but it is just stunning to look at. What category does this fall in? Modern, shabby chic.... whatever the case, I love it. 

Here are some amazing pieces that were featured on Joss and Main as of late. If you could own any of these, which one would it be? Do you have a mirrored piece of furniture in your home?
