Grown-up Treehouse

Thursday, June 29, 2017







Boy, oh boy, in spring 2014, Foster Huntington decided to realize his childhood dream of living in a grown-up version of his favourite treehouse. So, over the following 12 months he built this multi-level complex that connects two amazing treehouses by a 25-foot bridge, a wood-fired hot tub, and even a skate bowl. I wish I could stay there for a long weekend, you?

Sunset watching goals right there...

P.S: Remember this place?
P.P.S: Plus tons more things to swoon over...

I promise, they will keep you cool during your morning commute like nothing else...

Home Tweak Home: The Swiss Cheese Plant

Tuesday, June 27, 2017






Fancy adding a bit of bohemian charm to your home this summer? Just invest into a beautifully luscious and somewhat retro Swiss cheese plant. Yup, those grand leaves with holes will transform your space into a mini jungle that will feel serene and relaxing. Oh, and if you need more convincing, they are also pretty difficult to kill. Always a plus, right?

P.S: Fancy more?
P.P.S: Also, my mom just flew in for a very short visit, so I'll be away tomorrow from here and exploring the city with her. See you Thursday morning!

Embroidered Snapshots










Meet Aline Brant, the Brazilian artist who jazzes up her photographs with embroidery in hopes to inject a bit of poetic romantizm into those already pretty special snapshots. I’m mesmerized and speechless, you?

P.S: Speaking of...
P.P.S: Amazing!

Summer Ruffles

Monday, June 26, 2017










According to Cosmopolitan, ruffles are huge this summer! So, if you fancy a feminine and totally romantic twist on your summer uniform, try wearing your favourite shorts with a ruffled top, or go all out and dazzle in a full-on ruffled dress. Personally, I am on a hunt for an understated ruffled skirt that I can wear with simple white tees for casual date nights.

What do you think: thumbs up or down?

P.S: Remember this?
P.P.S: Plus, tons more fashion goodness...
