DECOR INSPO: LITTLE GIRL’S BEDROOM

We’re in the midst of converting Naiya’s bedroom from a nursery to a big girl’s bedroom. Naiya’s inspired by rainbows, unicorns and clouds right now so her bedroom has become a melting pot of ALL of these things.  Naiya knows EXACTLY what she likes and she’s NEVER afraid to make this crystal clear! Girlboss in training. Rounding up a bunch of bedroom inspo today which I’m currently loving for little girl’s rooms. Sharing a photo of Naiya’s current bedroom and linking to our favorite items too.  Since we’re all stuck at home, I’m all for reinventing our spaces to help us stay inspired, comfy and happy.

CHASING SADIE IN BASIC DENIM

When Sadie started walking at 9 months old, she had all of the determination in the world.  Everywhere she walked, she strutted with purpose and she tried her very best to keep up with her big sister.  We snapped these photos back in October just before Sadie’s first birthday. If you scroll down to the first photo below, it’s one of my favorite photos of Sadie ever.  It perfectly captures her spirit and confidence and it melts my heart. I hope she walks like this into her first day of school, into the college of her dreams and even her first job interview someday. Rounding up a number of shots today from this particularly warm day in October when Sadie was running around in the most beautiful park in Pasadena, California with all the gusto in the world.

KONMARI X CONTAINER STORE REVIEW

Los Angeles Mom Blogger, RELish By Arielle shares a Marie Kondo x Container Store Collection Review
I’m officially knee-deep in trying to stick to one of my New Year’s Resolutions: organizing our entire house KonMari-style. I’ve been following the KonMari method by Marie Kondo and it really has been life-changing. While I still have a ways to go, our entire house is already feeling SO much lighter.  Owning less–and less that truly brings you joy–is everything. Naturally, I’ve had my eye on chic bins, hangers, storage boxes and everything in between for the occasion. I learned last week that Marie Kondo was coming out with a Container Store x KonMari Collaboration. Let’s just say it was pretty much the best news I’d heard in 2021 so far.

CLEAN BEAUTY BRANDS I’M LOVING

As we rang in 2021, I went full Marie Kondo in our house.  I purged everything that didn’t bring me joy, organized like a crazy lady and even cleared out our overflowing attic. It felt SO liberating!  Throughout the process, I noticed just HOW many beauty products I’ve been stashing away for years for no apparent reason. Prior to this purge, I’d throw these products in a big bag beneath my sink. I’d tell myself that surely I’d need them SOMEDAY. This time around, though, my cleaning style had a method to the madness: if I hadn’t touched a product for a year or more, it was either donated or thrown away–end of story. Hello empty, refreshing space!  Goodbye clutter!
