Aida’s been away for a while now, and let me be the first to say, she’s certainly been missed around these parts! I know she’s been having a wanderlust-worthy journey (have you seen her Instagram photos lately?!) but, if she's like me, then it’s usually around the 2-week mark of a vacation that you start to feel a little homesick, you know? So I thought I’d plan a little surprise for her – my favorite pins this week are all about Aida’s favorite place in the whole world: her home state of California.
Maybe it was more than a coincidence, then, that we saw so many strawberry-themed recipes popping up in the week before Mother's Day. The internet has mysterious ways of showing you just what you need sometimes. In any case, I took it as a sign and so this time, it’s all strawberry fields forever.
Did you guys see the Cards Against Humanity Coachella expansion pack over at WhoWhatWear? If you've ever gone to the infamous festival then you'll laugh your ironic flower crowns off at white cards like "One million girls in neon jorts" and "A wild pack of shirtless bros," and black cards like "____: the real secret to getting your outfit photographed by a street style photog."
How gorgeous is this cotton candy photo? Kristin is up to some pretty delectable collaborations over at Dine X Design, and her new series "Fashion Feast" takes the cake. The whole shoot is worth checking out - and perfect for pins - but this one photo in particular caught our eye - rose and lavender-flavored cotton candy, matched with a cloud of pastel hair and swirled up into one big beautiful mess.
You know what we like about St. Patrick's Day? That whole pot-of-gold thing. Hunting around for St. Pat's brunch ideas, we came across some stunning photos that inspired us to go for the gold, rather than the green this weekend, and we just had to share them in this today's post. We hope you all find yourselves lucky this weekend, and we also hope you enjoy our five favorite pins this week!
How awesome we're birthday parties when you were a kid? The balloons, the presents, the venues (roller rinks, anyone?) and the cakes - oh, the cakes! There were some really fantastic ones (like the multicolor Hello Kitty one Aida had for her 8th birthday) though, whatever no matter the design it usually wound up on my face or my party dress - let's chalk that up to accessorizing, shall we?
At some point this week, we were fully aware of how much sunlight strayed into our windows. We noticed the days getting slightly, ever so slightly longer, and parkas being shed for lighter layers. It was as if the world had banded together and collectively declared, "Ok, Winter. Enough."
We've been sitting out west for months in hot weather, pitying our snow-covered neighbors to the east as we bask in the sun. Out here we desperately need the rain and we envy the ability to rock ultra-cozy cold layers, so, hello, storms! You've come at last and instead of rejecting you, we're embracing the chance to hunker down, catch up on some work and, best of all, indulge in my favorite cozy comforts.
In celebration of Valentine's Day, we found ourselves seeing - and pinning - everything through rose-colored glasses this week. Well, to be precise, rosegold-colored glasses, and our favorite pins included pinks and coppers that lent romance and elegance to everything they touched.
We're in a kick back sort of mood now that we're on vacation. In the spirit of late summer strolls, languid afternoons, and everything else that is summer in Europe, here are a few perfectly lazy pins:
It's been a weird week around these parts -- scorchingly dry then heavy and humid -- and that was just the weather. After the crazy weather and crazy work schedule we've had, we just want something (or these five things) to cool down.
