just a few amazing things 10.13.14

Whoa-boy- It’s October! Fall for me has been a little non-existent so far. The recent So Cal heatwave has stayed a bit more extreme and longer than I would like, but the weather is finally cooling a bit and I’m excited for the change of seasons. Another change around here is that I’m excited to announce I’m contributing a few posts at two sites: CondΓ© Nast Traveler and Ebay! I’ve been a

Ted Baker Fall 14 collection #Pinpointed

As much as I love the idea of summer not ending, I have to admit, I’m totally over this heatwave that has been melting Southern California the past week! Wardrobe wise, I am soooo ready for Fall!

The Royal Hawaiian Resort

I can’t believe it’s already September! Technically we still have a few weeks of “summer” left (September 22 is the offical last day of the Summer Solstice) but I’m trying to come to the gripping reality that “Fall” is coming.

Ocean Sole – Recycled Flip Flop Sculptures

One of the places I always need to visit when on Oahu is Mu’umu’uHeaven in Kailua. While there I spotted this little arrangement of brightly colored happy animal sculptures and immediately had to have this little shark. It’s made by a company called Ocean Sole. Based in Kenya, Ocean Sole creates wonderful products from discarded flip flops. Every year, thousands of flip flops and other debris wash u

Hawaii 2014 + Catalyst

Even though the end of August is quickly approaching, I’m trying to hold on to Summer as long as possible. So, how about a few moments of magical Hawaiian island splendor? If you’ve followed me for awhile, you’ll know I try to get over to Hawaii as often as possible. Despite that frequency, there’s always something new popping up and uncharted discoveries to be found. This last trip in particu

Creating a Mood: Inside Out Magazine 8/14

Prior to picking the color or the elements placed inside, I think the most important thing when starting to decorate a room is to determine what type of mood you want to feel when you’re in the space. The August 2014 issue of Inside Out Magazine has some great ideas on ways to create six different moods. My favorites are below: Sunny & Upbeat: Pops of yellow, grounded with neutral wood and white give a war
