i don’t normally get super celebratory for the oscars, but like i said — i’m hosting my family for the first time ever, so i wanted to come up with some simple ideas to get a little festive.
if you’re hosting an oscar party, or just having a couple friends over — these couldn’t be simpler if you’re serving wine or cocktails or whatever.
i bought the gold sugar here. in case you’re not sure how to sugar rim a glass, you just cut a wedge of citrus and slide it around the rim of your glass, pour the sugar onto a plate and dip your glass in.

yay weekend. we got a new bedroom rug as i shared on instagram and i’m also super glad this week was so short and quick. our bedroom is quickly becoming very beige, i think i’m ok with it, but i’m not sure. this weekend we’re celebrating my mamas birthday with dinner and a museum day — hope you guys have a good one!

i looooove air plants because even if i kill them, they’re cheap enough to replace and keep like 20 scattered around the house. so i have a half of dozen planters and holders for them, but could always use more.
i found these doll heads that had flat bottoms and would stand up perfectly straight — and even though dip dying might be totally last year, i decided to dip dye. i was hoping they’d kind of look like little pieces of like, southwestern pottery, which they kind of do…?

recipes / valentines day
even though it’s mostly females that read the blog, i wanted to share a gift guide for the ladies — and something you can send to him in case you’re worried he didn’t get you anything. all of these items are under $30 and on amazon prime, so they’ll be there in time!
valentine’s day is the perfect day for a decadent breakfast in bed — so i wanted to share my favorite easy special brunch recipe. creme brulee french toast, i mean the name alone screams … so rich it’s for once a year. you can also make this the night before and finish in the morning so it’s the perfect lazy morning treat.
