It’s official: I signed a year lease to live in Santa Cruz! I’m excited for this new chapter in my life, and looking forward to exploring Santa Cruz, and all the surrounding beach towns along the coast. I live two blocks away from the beach… my daily walks just got a whole lot better! I expect to take full advantage of being right next to the ocean- watching sunsets, going on hikes, tanning, and long walks on the beach. The thing I’m most excited about? I now have a little backyard for my Lola girl! She is going to love it so much. She will spend most of her days outside sunbathing, while I tend to my plants. SO HAPPY.

So now that I’m moving into the new house, I want to get a few new decor pieces for my new bedroom. I have a big window, and would love to get some sheer curtains to add a bright beachy vibe (like these ones):

I bought some new things for my room like this rug, this chair (in blush pink), and this san francisco native map (in blue + gold).

Things I still need to purchase: dresser, bookshelf, full-length door mirror.

Some room inspiration I have been loving & looking at thanks to Pinterest:



kitchen inspiration: wishlist.

Hello, and happy June 1st! I thought it would be fun to show you guys some of the things I’m eyeing for my kitchen… not buying yet because I have to save up $$$.

I live in an apartment, and it’s big enough for kitchen table, but for some reason we don’t have one. It’s super annoying eating dinner on the floor, or sitting on a couch (ugh). BUT I found an amazing one from Crate & Barrel and although it’s a little pricey, I don’t want to settle for anything else. My heart is set on this table & cute chairs.

French Kitchen Table found here.

Also, I’d want the same chairs, found on the same link as above.


Next, I’ve been DYING for my very own espresso machine. I’ve been doing some research, and the good quality ones are NOT cheap. You can easily spend over $500 on a good espresso machine. But here is the one I think is beautiful. You can find it here.


I love Anthropologie everything and anything! Their kitchenware is always fun and quirky! I love these dinner plates! How fun would these be to eat off of? You can find them here.


Also, add these to my list. I’m a sucker for anything pink and romantic/whimsical! Find them here.


I’m in need of a cheese board! Look how cute this one is! Find it on (sorry the link wouldn’t work). It is called Sissinghurst Castle Cheese Board.



I hope you all have a wonderful day! I’m officially on Summer break! This is the first time I’m not taking summer classes & I couldn’t be more excited!! Time to relax, read books, watch t.v. and do absolutely nothing!



current wishlist: home related.

I’m currently swooning over some items:



CucinaPro heart shaped waffle maker foundĀ here.


KitchenAid electric kettle in the color pistachio found here.


Tufted corduroy floor pillow in the color mauve found here.


San Francisco embroidered pillow from Pottery Barn found here.


Obsessed with this Pink Crosley portable record player found here.

What are some items on your wishlist? Most of these things are home related, because I love decorating. I like to change things up a lot, and I’m not 100% done with decorating the apartment we live in. Hopefully I can score some of the items on the list….
