Color of the Week

ELECTRIC Blue.

It is a very bright color reminiscent of a spark, named after the colour of an argon sign. It is very similar to cyan.

Not Such a Mundane Monday

Hawaiian style can be very over done. I have a client located in Northern California who has recently purchased a home. This client is originally from San Diego and loves the San Diego laid back lifestyle. They both loved the beach and the style it lends itself to.

here is an example of a home that lends itself to the style of ‘hawaiian’ but is overdone nor is it suggesting something else. The colors are great and fun and I love the area rug. Great inspiration.

Friday’s Found Fun

It is summer time and getting hotter! These are the perfect find for your summer beverages. Great for iced teas, lemonade, alcoholic beverages and more. The chalk board labels are the perfect summer time accessory for these items. You can find them at Sur La Table. Right now they are on sale at 20% off…so hurry! I am ordering one today! Can’t wait to squeeze lemons from my lemon tree and make some home made lemonade…maybe add a little Grey Goose! Ha.

Friday’s Found Fun

If you know me, you will know how I am with Target. For those who have no idea…let me explain: Target and I are a very dangerous match. I go to Target to get one or two items, and I end up walking out with the entire cart full! I don’t mean full as in you can no longer see the bottom, but full as in pouring out the sides as I am struggling to maneuver my way around the parking lot speed bumps and getting to my car. Since I am like this, lately I have been trying to be very smart about spending any money and therefore avoiding Target like the plague. Yesterday, I HAD to go. I needed some stuff and they have the best prices. So, I went. As I was leaving the house, my boyfriend reminded me to put on my “blinders” as I walk through the store and “STICK TO THE LIST”. I did. I was very proud of myself. I did take a look around though. I have not been to there for awhile and saw some great stuff in the clearance isle. This is the topic of my found fun. The ‘Liberty of London’ for Target collection. I must have missed all the cute stuff when it had just come out. Man…. To bad there is really nothing left of this collection…so cute. Then again, good thing for my wallet that it is all gone! Ha.

Friday’s Found Fun

That’s right…It is Friday, and that means….Friday’s Found Fun.

Well, there is a small design district in San Diego, well, actually there are a few, but very very small ‘design districts’. In fact, I would not really call them design districts, more like an embankment of 5 stores in a row that sell home furnishings, decor, fabric, etc. Anyways, my point… I went to a store called Solo in the Cedros Ave. design district. They are having there annual sale this weekend. I go every year. I love this store. They have a lot of handmade stuff, paper products, some furniture, and a ton of vintage items. I would describe the items that you will find here as ‘Etsy’-like. Take a look, just a few pictures I took from my iPhone while I was shopping.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Etsy and other notes

If you are a creative person who likes to create there own stuff and have no where to put it….post it on Etsy. It is only $0.20 per post and you can add up to five pictures for free. The sign up fee is free as well. Get paid through pay pal, view other people creativity and purchase some items too. It is very similar to ebay, but these are for hand made items, vintage items, etc. Great place. Check it out. I just posted an item today.

The site also has some wonderful earth friendly items.

Speaking of earth friendly… I am starting a garden in my backyard. I plan to grow my own veggies and fruits, and I really do plan on eating them. I have also started a compost pile. I guess that I really am going green. We have been recycling so much these days that your recycle bin is so full that we had to buy another bin to put the rest of it. Minimizing your carbon footprint is very important to the health of your planet. Next year I plan to get a hybrid car, hopefully, pending financials of course. I am so excited to not only be greener but to also eat healthy and help my residence (earth). Since the new year (my resolution was to be healthier and greener), we have purchased many cardio and workout equipment. So far we have been so good about cleansing ourselves. Yeah, ever so often we still crave that so delicious burrito, but we live in San Diego and there is not better place to get a bean and cheese or veggie burrito (well, maybe Mexico). Lots of beans and other fruit and veggies, and tofu for me and other forms of protein for my boyfriend. I feel so much better and a heck of a lot more energized and I can breath.

Nothing like it.
