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:



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….
