Happy Thursday Day, guys! So I thought I’d switch it up a little today and feature a few areas in my house I’m really feeling lately. For me, it’s always a long process to get a house to look exactly the way I want it to and I’m almost always never satisfied. When we first moved to San Diego we knew we wanted to live in Imperial Beach so finding a place was a bit limiting and so we settled on a cute, not so little, apartment. We liked it but really wanted to be closer not only to my kids high school but also the beach! Anyway, we got lucky and scored a house before it went on the market and have lived here now for a little over a year. You’d think by now that I’d have the whole place nicely decorated but honestly it’s a work in progress. I fell in love with the white wall movement a few years ago easing my way into it after years of painting my walls dark browns, slate blues, dark grays, and even a few times black (my favorite)! Maybe the white walls is a California bohemian thing but I love it! Anyway, while I’m slacking on the majority of my house, I do have a few areas, mostly corners of rooms, oddly enough, that have received a little love while I’m currently getting other areas in the house together. The decor is mostly older and bought throughout the years and just restyled according to where we’re living but if you’d like to know where I might have gotten something just comment below or send me a message. I’ll do my best to help you out! ❤

Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love, or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that’s makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something. ❤

Man, this week has flown by!! It’s like I blinked and it’s Friday! I’ve been spending a lot of time this week planning my milestone birthday. It’s always been a dream of mine to go to Hawaii, so that’s where we’re heading in April. I literally couldn’t be more excited!! We plan to stay in the North Shore of Oahu so if any of you have been, please let me in on all the hotspots, and by hotspots I mean beaches, local bars, and food trucks! This vacation is all about adventure mixed with lots of relaxation and lots of reflection. I can’t wait to share more information with you as I get things figured out. I’m already planning my wardrobe even though it’s over two months away lol to be continued … ❤

Hello, hello! Tuesday always feels like Monday to me due to my Beardo being off work on Mondays. We typically spend that day as if it were Sunday with the bonus that our kids are in school and we actually have the day all to ourselves! So yesterday, my Beardo said to me “this may sound weird, but I feel the need to go to the beach and walk around.” lol are you joking me? That’s like my favorite thing to do! No one understands the calling of the ocean more than me! Sometimes I just crave the salty smell. And so that’s what we did ❤

Valentine’s Day is only three days away!! Unlike most bloggers who are posting V-Day inspired outfits and gift guides for your significant other, I’m not. I know, I know, maybe that makes me lame and maybe some of you are wondering what my Beardo and I do for lovers day and probably most of you could give a shit less, but I’m going to give you my two cents on how I feel about this day and what it means to my relationship.

For starters, I think it’s important to start this little convo by saying that I’m madly in love with my husband and have been since the moment we met. Ok, well that’s kinda stretching it lol I’ve been in love with him since the moment I realized his persistency was not going to stop anytime soon and I should give him a shot. It took like two seconds and I was deeply in love with the man of my dreams ❤ I think it’s also important to say that we’ve been together now for 13 years (married for almost 8) which I believe puts us in OG status 🙂 Annnyyyyywaaayyyy, I loooovvvvve Valentines Day! But what I love most about it, is the cheesiness. I could care less about over the top dates and extravagant gifts. I’m perfectly happy with all gifts being purchased at Wal-Mart. Seriously! Chocolates, stuffed animals, cards, candy, I’m good with all that! Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Honestly, I think it’s because my Beardo makes me feel loved everyday! Today I woke up to breakfast made, topped with a white rose on my plate. Twice this week, I woke up to love letters, one in our kitchen and the other in my MacBook when I opened it. He is a true romantic and I adore every bit of him. Whether we’re dining at a nice restaurant or eating pizza on the beach this Valentines Day, the feeling will always be the same … grateful. I remember times when I wished for a man just like YOU (I know you’re reading this) and I will never take you for granted, you’re yummy in every way I’ve ever imagined. ❤

Palms.

So, clearly I have an obsession with palms trees and these earrings are no exception! I love, love, love them! I’m always down for a statement piece and a gold palm tree hanging from my ear definitely doesn’t disappoint lol I bought these cuties at Urban Outfitters and unfortunately they’re suddenly no longer available (sigh) BUT I have found several other options of you’re into the same ear bling I am. ❤

Happy Friday, guys! I hope everyone is enjoying their evening so far, happy hours, couch cuddles, whatever it may entail. I’m currently laying in bed with my beardo kinda, sorta, not really watching a movie and struggling from a serious case of FOMO. I’m supposed to be at NYFW right now, airline tickets bought and everything but after enduring the cold temps on our last months trip to the midwest we decided to stay in warmer areas of the country for now, which means home. ❤

Annnyywwaaayy, so for the sake of fashion and with New York in mind I thought I’d post a warm weather look for you guys. ❤
