a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Exciting stuff

I have been working on a front porch mood-board for a friend of mine and I thought I would share! 

Her house is a beautiful classic New England style home - white with black shutters - one of my favorite home looks!  To keep with the classic look but add some color and fun we decided to go with black & white cabana stripes, banana leaf pillows and some great planters.  She is full-of-life and a young fun mum with 2 beautiful baby girls so I want her home to be an extension of her beautiful personality!

The front porch is a long narrow space; there are not many pieces of furniture that will fit so we are going to be using pieces that she already has that fit the space perfectly . . . just going to spray them black with outdoor furniture spray paint!  

We are having pillows and seat cushions made in black & white cabana outdoor fabric and getting the banana leaf outdoor throw pillows from Etsy.  This is going to look great - can't wait to show before and after photos!

Prime Me!

It is no secret that I am an Amazon PRIME junkie . . . If I cant find it on Amazon and it's not prime I'm not getting it lol! 

I thought I would share with you my last few Amazon buys that we are enjoying!

 Cutest little Pumas for Emerson (here)

The best birthday present for kids between 5-14yrs (here) OR as an adult drinking game! 

We are big fans of the National Geographic Kids books & magazines (here).  We put them in Emerson's birthday party baggies for all the kids and they were a hit - they have tons of different animals to learn about and are all about $2-3 each 
Mr. Hotpants goes through work watches like no-one I know! I am not sure what he does with them but they always break or go missing! He uses them to time patients so they have to have a seconds hand.  This was the last one he ordered and in person I love it!  The green is awesome (here)

I fell in love with this swimsuit for Emerson! Best part? It is $15 (here)

We are a Burt's family so this pack was perfect - one each - for $9 (here)

I did a little mood-board for a friend who is looking for a red-distressed wood console table for her small entryway . . . I know its not a console table but when I saw that this sweet little bench comes in distressed barn door red I thought she might want to switch up her entryway idea . . . .

This is what the bench looks like  . . .

And this is the red wood swatch that it comes in . . . 

So here was my thoughts.  The bench, a small table/stool to put a little leather catch-all for keys, a mirror, and of course some gorgeous greenery! I put in a few choices for the table/stool as any of these would look great!

What do you think?

Loving on this Fine Friday

Happy weekend peeps . . . this is the first weekend in about a month that we have very little plans!!!! I am so excited to just chill! 

I have been browsing online a lot lately because I am designing some mood-boards for our living room, and I have been scoping out all things summer - backyard furniture, swimsuits, outside entertaining so I thought I would share some of my Friday loves with you . . . 

These pool/beach totes are fab (here)

I am in love with this off-the-shoulder top! The color is perfect for summer (here)

Just ordered this sweet little marble-mid-century side table (here)

I picked up some cute little things at F21 on my lunch break this week . . .
Great silky soft lounge pants (here)

Love the back details of this little bralette (here)

I had to have this little make-up bag - the color is the perfect poppy-red! 
Looks like YSL (here)

I also stumbled upon this great little bench for a great price (here)  . . . I think it would look great in a bedroom or entryway (it comes it different colors!)

Bringing it!!!

Holy Amazeballs Batman!!! I never look on the CB2 website because I usually don't find anything I like and it all sort of reminds me of college-dorm stuff BUT whoa their new stuff (here) is pretty stellar . . . . check out some of my favorite pieces!

Suit Up!

Excited to find this new-to-me brand of lingerie and swimwear by Xirena.  Take a look at these suits! I love the mixed patterns  and don't they look like the comfiest swimsuits?
