In Love With The Cocoa

April 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

If I had to choose right now, I’d nominate waking up at the beach with the ones I love the most to be the ultimate archetype of a perfect morning. South Carolina beaches are nice, but nowhere near as tropical as Cocoa Beach– where my grandmother calls home.  A change of scenery (and ice cream cake!) is v important.

Birthday Bonanza

April 28, 2015 § 1 Comment

My mother and grandmother have their  birthdays two days apart. This year, my grandmother turned eighty-five!  Danny and I drove to Cocoa Beach and met up with the rest of my family for the occasion. We threw her a surprise party that was successful and quite exciting. You may see a little clip here!  She was certainly surprised. Not to mention extremely popular! There were fifty or so in attendance. Born in 1930 and thriving. We love you, Nana! Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset « Read the rest of this entry »

Spring Edit.

April 20, 2015 § 2 Comments

Crazy rainy in the Carolina’s lately. The pressure is on, May. Bloom beautifully. Anyway… we’re headed to the beach this week! Here’s some of what I like and love for Spring, Summer, and the ocean.

4MAY

1. Zara embroidered topI fell in love with this whimsical beauty the second I saw it. 2. Film. I’m excited to take a break from digital as I recently dug up an old Canon AL-1 and Polaroid 600…Also found these shots of Lauren and I frolicking in Cocoa Beach circa 2008! 3. Beatrice Pink Metallic Sunglasses. These should come with a convertible and a silk scarf. So fun! 4.Yield Design French PressThe ceramic body and copper top of this French press feels bright and clean. 5. Byredo La Tulipe Perfume Tulips remind me of a person who reminds me that life is precious. Byredo for the win with beautiful fragrances. 6. Mango Fringe Linen Poncho. Way, way good for words. 7. Books. Kelly Link’s Get In Trouble and Karen Solie’s The Road In Is Not The Same Road Out are at the top of my list. 8.Black Hole Creations Palmistry Necklace. Etsy is awesome because a girl in France can make this amazing piece and ship it over like its nbd. 9. Zara Two Tone Wide Brimmed HatI know about five people who need this hat. Goes straw hat to chic hat real quick (Drake Voice). 10. Vintage Green Suede Boxy HandbagAnother Etsy find! I was doubting the suede in the summer look this season until this structured little bag won me over. 11. Nars Lip Pencil in Cruella + Rikugien. Birthday gifts are awesome, but early birthday gifts from Sephora are super awesome! Nars is a favorite splurge, so I’m looking forward to these May 1st.

Now…. More book recommendations, please!

Sunday Morning ft. Spring Picnic

April 5, 2015 § 1 Comment

Happy Easter! Apparently, Norwegians celebrate this holiday by reading Crime Novels. Growing up in the South did not include such a thing… Easter was pretty consistent: church, drawing cartoons on the church pamphlet during service (sry God), lunch, easter baskets, pained eggs, peeps. Marshmallows and jellybeans aside, this morning is about redemption. Blooming. Spring. Sunlight. Which brings me to photos! A couple weeks ago, we had our first picnic of the season. Here are kids I love doing what they love (being together, outside, eating pretzels). This feels like spring. It’s peaceful and sweet.

Retreat

April 1, 2015 § Leave a comment

Reality check necessary after spending some time in snowy mountains with my favorite people. Who needs the beach for spring break when there are mountains? Danny and I drove to Asheville Friday night for a Father John Misty show (our second time seeing J.Tillman at the Orange Peel!) and went North towards Boone. Love these friends and pancakes.
