Marimekko x Target Preview

Well, if you haven’t already heard by now (and aren’t already figuring out what supplies you’ll need to bring as you camp outside the store, lol) design icon Marimekko is the next amazing collaboration with Target!

Morgans Bathroom Basics

I know a lot of guys hate shopping in general. Despite the fact that I don’t actually fall into that catgeory (I’m a self professed “mall rat”) when it comes to daily bathroom essentials, like toothpaste, shampoo, or shaving cream, etc… I always seem to neglect keeping those things stocked. Inevitably I frequently have to do that such-a-hassle last minute run to the store. It’s fun

A couple weeks ago, Coca-Cola Freestyle approached me with a fun challenge. Come up with a DIY project that’s inspired by one of their low and no calorie beverages available in their Coca-Cola Freestyle machines. Have you seen these machines around? I’ve been noticing that they are popping up everywhere! If you’re unfamiliar, basically it’s like this magical machine that has a touch screen, where you can choose from

Happy Mundane Holidays 2015

And so it goes… we find ourselves at the end of another year! So crazy how this feels like it passed so fast?! Anyway we’ll get to that later- first, let’s continue on with the festivities! Continuing on from the colors and look from my tree, I wanted to make a matching centerpiece for my table. I used an old vase from West Elm, but instead of placing any branches, I decided to turn it into a candle

Modern Ornament adventure 2015

And it’s that time again! It’s my annual modern ornament extravaganza! (Despite the fact that I’m a bit late at getting it going, I am proud that I managed to actually finish before Christmas!)

Leesa mattress

There’s a local commercial that airs here in So Cal for a mattress store. Their whole tagline is “If it’s over 8, it’s time to replace”… Now I realize that’s just a marketing ploy, but there is something to be said about having a good mattress. Lately I’ve been noticing that I haven’t been sleeping as well and I’ve been thinking about getting a new mattress.
