I always forget about Zara. I think its because I don’t work in the city anymore. When I did, I use to visit Zara almost everyday! They have super cute clothes, at really good price, and I feel like they are a little higher quality than H&M. So when I saw the “Zara Home” website, I was so excited! Even more excited when I ventured to the “Zara Home Kids” page!( This is not new by any means, and not even new to me, but I wanted to share it with you!)The bright cheery colors ( as you know I am obsessed with) make me so happy! What a great environment we can create for our children, using all saturated, ZEST for life, pieces!
I have very recently become OBSESSED with the color combo of Yellow and Turquoise, and being in the middle of the Carribbean made it worse. When I came home, I began to notice all of the places in our home lacking artwork. I love photography, and I have lots of pictures around, but I am ready for COLOR!! we have the sad misfortune of having HORRIBLE natural light in our home! It always seems dark, and on top of that, I painted most of the walls in Earthy tones way back when I was into..well..Earthy tones. Now I am into Bright…so its going to be a slow process of switching over. Im starting small by adding small pops here and there. On a whim, I decided to whip out my watercolors, and add some yellow and turquiose to our bathroom! It literally took me 20 minutes, and I kind of DIG it!!! My next step is to dive into acrylic paints. I am not familiar with them, but love the texture and saturation you can create with them. But for now, I am enjoying my little bathroom watercolor! its a cheap, fast way to add a little color!
Below are some of my inspiration pictures, from my “Color Me” board on Pinterest.
Here are a few of the other color combos I am working on, (really loving the turquoise coral and blue) but this time I am going to try acrylic! I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my progress!

One of our most favorite things to do whenever we vacation by water, is collect shells! St.Thomas was no exception, of course! Between G snorkeling everyday, and Liam and I going on magic shell treasure hunts, we brought home quite the collection.
This vacation was so special to us for many reasons, but mostly, because it was our first vacation that included only the 3 of us. No family, no friends, just our little family of 3. SO what do we do with all the special treasures we found? I decided to create a shell shadow box! It was so easy, and I am so happy with how it turned out! Here are the steps I took:
-Wash Shells in bleach and water
-Lay shells out in shadow box exactly how you would like them.
-Close lid to make sure all shells fit!
( this happened to me)
-Use Gorilla Glue to hold them tightly in place!
