First off, I love the idea of making your own, all natural beauty products. Put that together with a spa themed shower and you have the perfect party don’t you think!? Here are a few inspirations I have picked up lately. Some great recipes for home made scrubs, bath salts, masques etc… Love the idea of having a DIY bath salt bar, and guests can blend their own creations! I might need to do this asap.
Great bath salt recipes from Design Sponge. Plus I love this presentation! :: a ton of super easy recipes from Herbology :: Oatmeal Body Scrub from Style Me Pretty Living :: Some fabulous beauty bar shower ideas via Wedding Chicks.
I have such fond memories of my birthday parties as a child, always complete with a craft of some kind. As I begin to dream up Piper’s 3rd birthday, I find myself collecting kid craft ideas. I am thinking the crown craft from Bri of Design Love Fest, could be the perfect thing for miss Piper’s princess party!!

For mother’s day we decided to explore Unique LA. For those not familiar, it’s a marketplace for modern design made in the USA. (bravo bravo!!). I didn’t really know what to expect, but let me tell you it was a great event. From the free drinks to the free DIY workshops, free tote bag. to the amazing food, not to mention all the goodies I bought!! It’s a must visit for all you Southern California people.
One of my favorite designers I saw was Blooms in the Air, a handmade paper flower shop. I mean paper flower terrariums!? Paper air plants!? Brilliant to say the least. This work was exquisite.
Selina Vaughan Studios had the most amazing vintage seed sack bags. I mean these were gorgeous I have to say! Officially added to my wish list.
I also loved Robynn Molino’s work. We picked up a few things at her shop. Tiny Whales had the most adorable tees and onesies for kids like this Once Upon a Time tee…I mean seroiusly? Too cute! One of my favorite scores was this wooden marquee mermaid. As we walked around the show with it, just about everyone asked where we scored such a treasure. Well everyone here is the answer, Junk Art Gypsyz. They have the coolest stuff!!
I loved this signage from MFEO and their work was absolutely amazing! They “handREcraft the broken and rejected into uniquely beautiful pieces for your home…” How can you not love them! We snagged some unique & delicious Golden tomato honey with rosemary from Lemon Bird Design. Of course our visit wasn’t complete without a visit to the Tattly folks. Piper rocked her tat pretty nicely don’t you think? And lastly the Oh Hello Friend shop was representing. We snagged a few things from here too, and I just loved everything in there! Can’t wait to visit their brick and mortar soon. Also not pictured, but definitely worth mentioning is the amazing Black Truffle Finishing Salt we picked up from Hepps Salt Co. YUM!!
Good news friends, the next Unique LA is July 13 + 14 in Santa Monica…Trust me you will want to check it out.
Ever since I was a little girl I have had a thing for Unicorns. I love seeing Unicorns popping up in fashion, handmade art and decor. Here are some of my faves as of late.
With the excitement of a new baby coming into this world, so often the mom gets forgotten, the presents for the tiny miracle come pouring in. But what about mom!? Whether a hospital birth, a birth center birth or a home birth, it’s so important to create a serene and comfortable environment for the mom. Here are a few of my favorite ideas for Birth day presents. Pick one up for a friend, or pack a bag full for yourself!
This aromatic, soy candle from The Honest Company creates the perfect calm environment.
A handmade one of a kind soft cashmere bunny from The Stitch Farm offers the perfect amount of comfort to mom.
Organic lip balm is a MUST! from The Honest Company.
A gorgeous silk Plum Pretty Sugar robe would be perfection don’t you think?
Or one of these luxurious and uber comfortable robes from Intimint.
And the ULTIMATE all in one “Hospital Box” from the one and only Hatch Collection…cashmere socks and all…wow!
With Mother’s Day this weekend, I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of my mom and I…circa 1978!! I just love the pure joy these pictures captured. Happy mother’s day to my amazing, beautiful mother! Wishing all the mother’s out there a very happy mother’s day this weekend!!
