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.

Sanna Annukka x Nordstrom Holiday 2015

I’ve always been a fan of Nordstrom‘s holiday campaigns, but this year in particular, they really hit it out of the park. As you might know, I’m a HUGE fan of designer Sanna Annukka‘s work, so to see her designs all over their Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com was such a treat! I took a bunch of snaps of how they applied the designs on … everything! Btw, you can get those cute ornaments

Drye Towels and T.I.A.T. Giveaway!

I love towels. Aside from their super cushy soft snuggleness, they’re extremely versatile in so many situations. Of course you have your standard solid whites, but honestly, I feel like towels are another great way to add some color and pattern into not only your bathroom, but kitchen, patio, and even in your car! Back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, it feels like towels were experiencing a major renaissance. There w

CREEPY CUTE Halloween 2015 Part 2: Super Kawaii Party

Now that I had my Drippy Pastel Pumpkins, it’s time to get the #creepycute2015 party started! The first thing I needed to do was get some more decorations. I went to the 99cent store, Daiso, JoAnn’s Fabrics, and Target to pick up a few ghoulie goodies. Now, as we know, most of the decorations out there at this time of year are pretty creepy. Don’t let that… scare you… (pun intended, lol)

CREEPY CUTE Halloween 2015 Part 1: Drippy Pastel Pumpkins

I can’t believe it’s already here, but it’s that time again! Every year I always love having a “great pumpkin adventure” and for 2015, I have to say this is going to be my most funnest one, like, ever. My many years of working in the fashion and design industries have introduced me to a lot of interesting style subcultures- especially Japanese ones. One in particular that I’ve been

Dermond Peterson City Bags Collection and Giveaway

Whether you’re packing for a trip, doing a quick store run, or just your daily work commute- a good bag (or set of bags) can be a major lifesaver when it comes to keeping everything we need to take with us all contained and organized. I’ve found that even bags within bags can totally give you that extra helping bit of sanity and peace of mind (as opposed to having to dig and eventually dump everything out

Chic Boutiquers at Home book by Ellie Tennant

I think for many of us, online shopping has become pretty second nature when it comes to decorating our homes. I know for myself, the first thing I do when starting to look for something is to hop online to see what options are out there. Because I live in a suburban setting, I don’t have as much immediate local access to as many cool boutique shops, so online retailers provide me with that same curated experie

HappyMundane x Urban Outfitters Print Shop

If you’ve been following my feed, you probably realized that I was just recently back in Hawaii. (When the island calls, you must heed!!) I think I’ve always had a little “tropical fever” as the islands have always been a source of inspiration- especially the vibrant foliage that abounds there. As also evidenced by my feed, it’s also a frequent subject in the photos I take. All of this l

The Desert Modernists

Now that we’re at mid-September, I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of “Fall”. However, with the crazy humid heat wave that we’ve been having here in SoCal, it looks like “Summer” is going to hang on tight for a bit longer. That’s not necessarily a bad thing! I know for many people, the idea of an “endless summer” would be a dream come true. One place where it
