This week I will be on hiatus, doing one of my favorite things in the entire world, spending time with some of my favorite friends in one of my favorite places. My family has been going to the Alisal Guest ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley for 13 years now, but this time I'm going there on a girls trip. Six of us cowgirls for 5 days of riding and relaxation. Quite honestly, it's a dream come true! Horseback riding, fabulous food and incredible memories ready to be made! Happy trails to all of you this week. I can't wait to share my stories!

Loving these fabulous earrings from Baublebar. Completely glamorous at a budget price. Two of my favorite things! I could design a room around this opal color combined with a little crystal for sparkle! These Opal Galactic earrings would look just as sweet with a cocktail dress as they do here with a sweatshirt. Earring LOVE.

Black and white is a current obsession of mine. I also love a bargain, so this graphic rug from Ikea is a winner on all counts. It vaguely mimics the Ikat pattern that I am seeing so much of in design, but i love that it's not exactly Ikat. I think this pattern is more original. I'd love to see this rug with an all white color pallet or accent with some bright colors for Spring. Imagine this with hot pink, yellow, or even emerald green! I could also see this as a dramatic foil in a teenage girls room filled with lots of pastel pink. This Lappijunga Ruta rug is a real bargain at only $69.99!

This gorgeous Moroccan inspired mirror from Wisteria is just what I'm looking for to bring a fresh look into a house I'm working on at the beach. The rubbed finish and curved style make it unique. Mixed with a weathered patina, as it is here, it feels decidedly beachy. If you've never spent any time ogling Wisteria, definitely take a look. They carry beautiful and inspiring things for the home!

It's supposed to be a beautiful Mother's Day week end here in SoCal and I'm already thinking about entertaining al fresco! These acrylic (yes, I said acrylic) wine glasses from Crate and Barrel, are just what I need to get my party started!
This disposable cutlery set comes with a cool napkin and is environmentally friendly! Love it!
And finally, how about these beautiful, paper place mats? A little confetti and chevron are always a good idea!

I'm crazy for these beautiful French measuring cups from Terrain. Since I'm such a fan of all things white in the kitchen these will fit in perfectly. A departure from the typical is always nice. These would make a great Mother's Day gift wrapped up with this chic blue and white apron.

How much do we love this little table from Target? It's actually hard to believe that it is from Target. This is definitely high end style at a low end price! This Threshold Basket weave accent table makes my heart sing! A touch of gold, with a hint of drama is exactly what I'm adding into the homes that I'm styling for Spring. At only $89.99, this is a screaming bargain.
