8 sandals for spring


8 sandals for spring | almost makes perfect

i honestly couldn’t live anywhere cold because i basically live in sandals. i own more sandals than anything else and those that know me know that i’m almost always wearing them… so i’m basically an expert. and i never lose the urge to get more sandals because i wear them down so hard. it’s a real catch 22. anyway, here are some of my currents faves (and btw #6 is the most comfortable sandal ever)

the assembly | almost makes perfect

happy friday guys. this week was pretty productive when it comes to house things, we cut some concrete in the backyard to plant a tree we bought, and to plant some bougainvillea over the studio (the exterior is really ugly right now so we’re working on prettying it up). this weekend we’ve got more house errands and we’re gonna see 10 cloverfield lane (are you seeing it? it’s supposed to be awesome). have a good one!

⋅ if you want your heart to melt right now…
⋅ this sounds like a movie premise 
⋅ really beautiful easter eggs
⋅ tweets about trader joes parking lots 
⋅ just bought these and i’m in love
⋅ love this desert house tour

i really never thought i’d be using pom poms in a project, ever — but here i am, and i love it. i’m super excited about this pillow because it’s one of the easiest projects i’ve done in a while, and requires literally no crafting skills besides a little patience and something to watch on TV.

dream house : the deck


dream house || the deck | almost makes perfect

it’s been a reeeal long while since my last dream house post, and now that we’re starting to plan some updates, i’m back to pulling a ton of reference and daydreaming.

i’m going to show you our backyard soon, but basically it’s a mess. it’s a clean slate because there’s nothing going on, but we have a shallow cement patio, some random poured concrete and way more weeds than you can even imagine. so we’re now in the beginning stages of planning the backyard and we’re hoping to build out a’s been sad not being able to use our backyard yet, but i’m hoping come summer — it’s our own little oasis. but the center of our plan is the deck — because i love a good deck. and i love all these decks.
