Dreaming in Pastels

This past weekend was beautiful. Me and my brood of boys soaked up every minute with a beautiful hike and ride in the steam trains.

All of this sun and fair weather has gotten me dreaming of spring.

Pastels seem to be all the rage right now, and I am definitely ON BOARD.

I am loving them in fashion

and even moreso in decorating.

You can add some freshness to your space by adding a few new throw pillows (a quick etsy search)

perhaps a new piece of artwork,

(Gloria Petyarre)

or even some fresh flowers

Happy Spring Dreaming!

Products I Love

I thought it might be a fun idea to start posting about Products I Love. I am certainly no beauty expert, but as a girl, I love trying products to find what works best for me.

Yesterday while at Target, I decided it was time to get a new mascara. I have blonde lashes and kind of feel naked without any mascara. I typically use L'Oreal Voluminous...and voluminous it is, however it often bring lots of clumps and stiff lashes. I decided to try a new brand.

Voila....Covergirl Lash Blast (the orange tube, voluminous, black). I am in love. The wand. Oh the wand. It is so cool and different, and I love how it is like a brush for my eyelashes. The best part, no clumps and they actually feel nourished as well and darkened/emphasized. So there it is. Have any of you tried it before?

Reclaimed Wood

I have been loving reclaimed wood lately. I love the rustic, natural feel and the wide planks. I love it as a flooring option, and also love it used as tabletops, headboards and beyond. I also love that it can go with a lot of different design styles. Here is some inspiration.

C. Wonder

I'm not sure if any of you have heard of C. Wonder, but allow me to introduce you if not. It is a spinoff store/company from Tory Burch (apparantly opened by her ex). Anyways, there are a few stores- one in Soho, a few in the NYC suburbs. The style is obviously a spin on funky prep, bright colors and geometric designs. They carry homewares, jewelry, clothing, luggage and more. Here are a few of my favorite homewares:

If you are near the area, I'm jealous that you get to go visit a store, because I think the store itself looks like a ton of fun! ....this summer I can go once we are Manhattan-bound....
