NEW & UPDATED baby registry essentials

NEW & UPDATED baby registry essentials

One question I get asked all the time is what are my “baby must-haves” both for new, first-time parents or for those about to have their second (or third). I shared my baby registry essentials back in 2018 after having Lucy and talked about the items we loved and which ones we used. At the time, we lived in a small one bedroom apartment in San Francisco, so I was very mindful of what products we registered for.I I also wanted to ensure that the baby items were ideally (1) functional, (2) easy to store away and (3) ideally, aesthetically pleasing. Basically, I didn’t want […]

coffee table books we own & love

coffee table books we own & love

Hey guys! I wanted to share a list of coffee table books we own and love! Some of these I  recently purchased, but many I’ve had for years! We are often getting rid of and donating items, but these books have outlasted our move and many purges. I organized the coffee table books by category – interiors, plants, surf, inspiration, and travel. Of course, there are tons of other categories, but these are the coffee table books I tend to gravitate towards. I love flipping through these books, and they also look cute styled and stacked on dressers, nightstands, bookshelves, fireplaces, and hence the name, […]

travel adventures: a long weekend in kentucky

travel adventures: a long weekend in kentucky

Hi guys! As you might know from following my blog, we love traveling. We typically do an international trip or two every year, as well as many domestic trips to visit friends and family. With COVID-19, we opted to not do a big international trip this year which is SUCH a bummer, but certainly the right decision. To cure our travel woes, we decided to just make the most of it and try to focus on taking some fun family road trips this summer instead! This past weekend, we did a weekend in middle of nowhere Kentucky (Owenton, to be exact) with my parents and […]

updated upstairs space home tour

updated upstairs space home tour

Hi guys! I’m excited to share an updated post showing you our upstairs! Last fall, we decided to renovate our upstairs! I’ll re-share some quick info about this renovation that I’ve shared in previous blog posts. We bought our house in fall 2018 and were quickly captivated by the 100-year-old house’s location and charm. The house had a lot of quirks and needed some love, but no major renovations or construction projects were required. The upstairs was two rooms, both with awkward layouts and poorly constructed closets. The upstairs also had a bit of an attic vibe – there were sloped ceilings on both sides […]

before & after: downstairs bathroom with clawfoot tub

before & after: downstairs bathroom with clawfoot tub

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you may know we recently made some updates to our downstairs bathroom! Let me give you a little backstory on this bathroom. When we moved in, our home had two bathrooms – a master bath off of our bedroom, and this hall bath. We’ve since renovated the upstairs and added a third bathroom. For the most part, this bathroom is used by Lucy for her nightly baths, and for our guests when they have to use the restroom. I’m also a huge bath lover, so use it pretty regularly (especially before we added the upstairs one). Honestly, the […]
