Get the Look: Costco Lamps vs. Pottery Barn

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Purchasing matching lamps can be expensive, that’s why the price of these two at Costco really caught my eye at only $69.99 for the pair.

They reminded me of these ones I saw at Pottery Barn:

Only these ones are $190 each without the shades.

I hope some of you will take me up on this amazing offer, I’m really jealous I won’t be partaking this time!

A Summer Pavlova

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Brock’s been making fun of me lately for describing food as ‘gorgeous’…it’s a Northern England thing. But when it comes to desserts like this, there’s simply no better word. :)

This particular Pavlova I made for our summer tea party; and to be honest it could have been better with more cream in the middle, but purely for looks…because it tasted gorgeous!

If you’re looking for a crowd pleasing dessert, this is it! It’s a Donna Hay recipe, you have to give it a try.

Here’s the recipe:

Saltwater Sandals

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Our sis, Helen has the most amazing taste in kids clothes. Her children always look incredibly put together, I don’t know how she does it. And, to top it off she always gets a bargain.

Last year, Helen got her girls Salt Water Sandals that I instantly fell in love with.

They are cute, hard wearing, comfy, affordable, and best of all look great on boys, girls and ladies alike.

Whether in fashion or in the home, classic and simple is always hard to beat! The only question is which color do you like best?

Summer Whites

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Yesterday, Utah celebrated Pioneer Day. Brad and I enjoyed the break from work in beautiful Midway. We swam, ate great food and hit a few balls at the driving range. It was the perfect summer day.

Summer is my favorite season and today I thought I’d share a few dreamy, summery spaces:

From sheer linens to bright paint, summer whites are so crisp and airy.  Don’t you just want to go and lounge around these spaces for a few days? Hope you are all having a lovely summer!
