I love everything that relates to the ocean and especially surfing. SWELL is a surfer catalog that has great summer beach clothes. Here are some of my favorites! I can't wait for summer! Although I was just at the beach, you know my new "office", yesterday, and it was gorgeous.

Lost Ivy Clutch - very similar to the Chloe clutch I love but for the price of the tax if you bought the Chloe clutch.

This gorgeous bathroom is from dancer, Nicola Curry's apartment in NY, via Apartment Therapy. Isn't it adorable? Check out their site for more photos.

Little me!

I was born creative. I think I was probably 6 or 7 here. I was one stylish kid. How great is that smock / dress / thing! I wish I had that now!

OohLaLa let's spend the day in bed!

It is raining here today which is rare in LA. It makes me want to spend the day reading in bed or watching a movie. Here is some inspiration from Point Click Home:

Ooh La La less is so much more!

I came across Simon and Ektoars small railroad apartment on Apartment Therapy and it's so sweet. It is definitely my goal to pair down what I have and try to live on less. I love the clean lines and that everything has a purpose. Check it out:

It's time to be the change!

Happy Inauguration Day! My dad gave me this wonderful book of poetry for Christmas and there is one in particular that I love and I thought was fitting for today.
Let's hope our nation becomes the change we want for our country.:

There Comes The Strangest Moment

Kate Light

There comes the strangest moment in your life,

when everything you thought before breaks free-

what you relied upon, as ground-rule and as rite

looks upside down from how it used to be.

Skin's gone pale, your brain is shedding cells,

you question every tenet you set down,

obedient thoughts have turned to infidels

and every verb desires to be a noun.

I want-my want. I love-my love. I'll stay

with you. I thought transitions were the best,

but I want what's here to never go away.

I'll make my peace, my bed, and kiss this breast..

Your heart's in retrograde. You simply have no choice.

Things people told you turn out to be true.

You have to hold that body, hear that voice.

You'd have sworn no one knew you more than you.

How many people thought you'd never change?

But here you have. It's beautiful. It's strange.

Ooh La La a little paradise downunder!

Today we get a have a very special house tour of Danielle's home in Sydney, Australia. Danielle has a beautiful stationary design company called Delaks filled with gorgeous paper goods. So check out her shop. She has great style and design sense just like her house. It is so fresh and clean. It reminds me of a lovely seaside cottage. Here are some pictures of her house and also be sure to check out her blog:
I love this clever changeable artwork on the wall using simple letters and a board.

and here's her cute little pup!
