"Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace."

First and foremost, happy March! Spring is right around the corner and I know everyone is looking forward to the change. It's been a pretty cold and gloomy day here so while I'm currently covered up in a blanket, you can expect upcoming posts to feature fresh flowers and airy dresses. 

February passed quickly, as it usually does. I still couldn't completely shake the blues, but I tried my best to channel all that negative energy into gratitude and by the end of the month, I was feeling much better. Thank you guys for your support and feedback on my Valentine's Day post. Being honest about my struggles is so cathartic, and it seems like it has helped some of you as well. At least, that's my hope. 

Not everything in February was good, but it was the little things that made me happy...

I treated myself to some gorgeous fresh flowers, courtesy of Trader Joe's. Tip: Buy yourself some flowers during a bad day or week. It will instantly lift your mood.

Decorated my home office. Most of our house has a relaxed coastal/beach vibe, but I wanted my little office space to reflect my love for Palm Springs and the desert. I purchased the items below, and have a large leaning floor mirror being delivered shortly. I'm adding little touches slowly, but I can't wait until it's all completed.

I'm beginning to transition my (California) Winter wardrobe into Spring. I'll talk more about how in the coming weeks, but really it's all about making small changes that include shoes, bags, and accessories. Details make the difference!

Drank nitro cold brew from Starbucks on repeat. Have you tried it? I just get the regular nitro cold brew with sweet cream and it's the perfect flavor!

Contemplating watching the Netflix series Love is Blind. My sister-in-law told me about it a couple weeks ago and now I'm seeing it mentioned everywhere. I think I'll try an episode this week.

How was your February? Do you have any trips or big plans for Spring?


  1. your office is going to look so good, are you considering getting plants? i got a few last year and a few more recently, they give such a cozy feel Love that cactus print too.

    1. Thanks Rachelle! Yes I do plan on getting a live plant, the one I have on my desk currently is just a little fake one. I think I'll get a hanging plant :)

  2. That you could channel your negativity into gratitude is an amazing thing! That is no small feat, and I'm glad you are feeling a bit better. Fresh blooms always lift my mood too, especially a hydrangea!

    1. It's so hard, but I do a lot of reading and talking through things with family and that helps a ton. I have a book filled with positive affirmations and quotes and I look at it weekly as a reminder to breathe :) Especially now more than ever!

      Hydrangea are probably my favorite, although I do love peony season :)
