.. Early morning strolls in Covent Garden last week ..
This morning I broke two of my favourite perfumes in a bathroom cleaning fiasco, it was just the icing on the cake after a bit of a crappy week.
I guess if there’s no point crying over spilt milk, or perfume but our bathroom now smells like an expensive over-fragranced brothel. Never been in one, that’s just a guess.. Don’t know whether to laugh or cry..actually I do - 😭😭😭
Hope your day started better. ❤️✨
This is our first spring living in this house. It has been so fun to discover all of the flowers, bushes, and bulbs popping up all over the place. And thank you to everyone who helped me identify this flowering bush yesterday in my stories! It’s called a Spiraea. Now, I’m just anxiously awaiting the whole row of peony bushes to bloom 💐

Only a few more days until I get to share this entire collection with you! 👯♀️ _
My studio is quiet today as I am working on final prep for the landscapes release, which mostly involves computer work at this point. This collection has 14 pieces ranging in size from 11”x14” up to 30”x40” (pictured). 🖼
Be at YOUR computer (or tablet or phone) at 11am, Thursday, April 4th for the release. 🎉 OR if you’re lucky enough o be on my mailing list, you get first dibs access a whole DAY early!! 😱 Yup, that right. Because that’s how much I love my mailing list ❤️ Want the love, too? Click the link in my profile to get on it! ✔️
It’s a sunny day here in LA so only fitting to share this happy lemon-filled room we designed for @luluandgeorgia founder @sarasbrenner. Sara’s team designed the wallpaper for her daughter Vivian who has been obsessed with lemons and yellow since she was a baby. Such a lovely way to bring in a story to the room. Happy Saturday x⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy Easter 🥚 are you enjoying the sunshine ☀️ chocolate 🍫 and extra time to do things you love? When I get a free day like a public holiday I think of a million things I want to do. Oooh I could read a book, or two. I could practice learning to use my camera on manual mode. Maybe take a nap after a huge lunch with friends. And binge out on Netflix but only after a morning hike. 😂 Somehow I massively overestimate how much I can get done in a day! Do you do the same thing or is it just me? 💛 photo by @abbie_melle
It was super windy today that led to a calm evening and tonight got me so excited for warm summer nights on the water or just summer in general ✨

Is your big day coming up this year? ✨ While you're busy prepping all the finer details, don't forget to prep your skin, hair and nails leading up to your wedding. A consistent healthy diet and lifestyle is irreplacable to looking and feeling your best for your wedding while giving you one less thing to stress about before your big day! We recommend having 2 sachets of #INJALife Marine Collagen daily for at least 3 months before your wedding celebrations for extra glowy skin, lush hair and beautiful nails!
Taking the time to stop and smell the flowers, literally! San Diego has been treating us well these past few days, so many amazing new shops, bites and sights to explore every time we come down (and don’t get me started how much things have changed since I went to college here). There have been LOTS of questions from my stories so I think sharing a recap list is in order - will do soon! Hope you’re having a beautiful Easter weekend too!! 🙌🏻💐☀️
Here’s a cropped portion of a photo I took at the ranch in Springville of one of the tallest trees in the orchard. Gonna print (3x4 ft engineer print) and put this wall of oranges above our bed, what do you think?
3252 Dawson St, Pittsburgh, PA. Andy Warhol’s childhood home where he spent his formative years before leaving for New York City in 1949. The family sold the home in 1960 but heirs bought it back in 2005 with plans to restore it. Here we are in 2019 and it is hard to tell if any work has been done, but I’m glad to know it is owned by his family.

Life lessons of the week:
〰️ Always embrace the “last time’s” before a new baby comes...AJ and I had our “last night away” last night and we loved soaking up the time together.
〰️ You can go longer than you think without washing your hair. (My limit is about a week at this point, what’s yours? 😉)
〰️ I’m not a good “holiday mom”. I’m ALWAYS scrambling to get outfits/activities/surprises together at the last minute.
〰️ #inspiringsimplicity is A BEAST. It’s well over 30k photos now and I LOVE catching up with all of the beauty you share there!
〰️ Comparison is a pointless game. Thank you for all the sweet messages from my stories yesterday — never compare your unique story to someone else’s, because it’s not your journey in the first place. Why would yours look the same as theirs?
〰️ Childbirth is never any less intimidating...even the third time around.
〰️ My own self-Confidence is even more important to be aware of as I raise daughters. I LOVED hearing all of your thoughts on my blog post this week.
What did you learn about yourself/life this week?
On the blog is my recap of @altsummit, where everyone suspends any natural negative tendencies or introverted behaviors for five days of women-centric small biz focused learning. It’s creative and inspirational and people wear super cool clogs and talk a lot on the shuttle and meet their new best friends. Here are a couple of mine — mother and daughter @tinas411 and @thepaiz, shot here by photographer whiz @nicolebreanne. If you’ve ever thought of attending, more info is on the blog. #linkinprofile
