A Peachy Floral First Birthday Party


At first, my ideas were everywhere while planning my daughter Blakely’s first birthday.  I knew I wanted to be able to repurpose most of the decorations from her party —Especially since I knew I’d  be putting some money into them — so I chose a theme that I could use in her new toddler bedroom. With a lot of planning and help, it turned into a very elegant and yet simple floral first birthday party. Read more

Simple DIY House-Shaped Kids Bunk Bed to Make This Weekend

Design/ Home

After searching for the perfect new bunk bed for our boys’ bedroom, we decided to come up with our own tutorial for a house bunk bed. House Beds are a huge trend right now. I saw my first house bed over a year ago and I fell in love and I swore that as soon as we built our daughter a toddler bed someday, I would make a super cute pink house bed, decorated in cute pom-pom buntings and it would be perfect. Well, it’s been a year and she’s only 16 months old — Still a ways away from being in a toddler bed. But we’re in the process of decorating our boys’ bedroom and needed to build them a new bunk bed set as their old set was massive and took up half their room, so why not use this as an opportunity to make a house bed? The only problem was I couldn’t find a tutorial for one, let alone a picture . . . so I got to drawing. Keep reading for this one-of-a-kind weekend DIY House-Shaped kids bunk bed tutorial (minus the bed rail which was added on later). Read more

3 Reasons You Need to Go to the Watermark Conference For Women

Opportunities for men and women aren’t the same— that’s nothing new —Which is why a group of Bay Area women formed the nonprofit Watermark Conference. The conference’s mission is “to increase the representation of women at executive levels to drive innovation, human development and economic growth . . . [and] ensure women are able to make their mark in and for their companies, their careers and their communities by providing programs focused on connection, development and advocacy.” Now that’s something I want to be a part of. Keep reading for the 3 reasons you’ll want to make a trip to San Jose for the April 21 full-day event.  Read more
