My flower arranging obsession has me lusting after these beautiful pastel ceramics by Lenneke Wispelwey (via Miss Moss).

These adorable bright geometric hanging pyramid treat boxes ($14.50) would be so cute for an al fresco party hung all over the trees.

Sometimes plain with just a little intrigue are what I’m looking for in a manicure. These DIY marble nails fit that to a tee!

Daydream In Hippos

Wire Hippo Card ($11) | Bamboo Hippo Wall Clock ($68) | Hippo Print Scarf ($5) | Hippo Ring ($95) | Hippo Candle ($5) | Hippo Doormat (¥18,900) | Ceramic Hippo Factory ($25) | Needle Felted Hippo ($15) | Hippo Planter ($19) | Hippo Print Thermal ($50) | Hippo Messenger Bag ($72)

We got an Oregon Zoo membership over the summer and have been trying to frequent there to take pictures, relax, and enjoy the animals. One of our favorites are the hippos. They are huge. Much bigger than I’d imagine and they just sit there wet from their last swim and lounge in the sun. It’s super adorable and reminds me of hungry hungry hippos. I wanted to dedicate a post to these plump and cute creatures.

Do you like hippos?

{Collecting Rainbows} Honeycomb Pot

I have always lacked a green thumb. Everyone I know seems to have perfected the art. My BFF has a plentiful garden in a community garden, my cousin has been growing plants and trees from seeds of fruits she’s eaten in her NY apartment, and it takes no effort from my grandma to produce a perfect garden within a few weeks. I joked a few years ago that you knew I was a travelling consultant because the plants growing in my fridge from forgetten onions and veggies were much much bigger than any plant I actually tried to grow on my balcony. Heck, I even killed my pricey succulent that I had gotten from Artemisia within weeks!

This is why I’m daydreaming that someday I’ll be able to have a little staircase of plants in these beautiful rainbow honeycomb pots I spotted on MAiYA. In the meantime, I’ll just live vicariously through others and get them as gifts.

What color of the rainbow would you choose?

{Collecting Rainbows} Porcelain Owl Necklaces

There will always be a soft spot in my heart for owls since I started collecting them as a kid.


I love the feel and simplicity of porcelain.


A beautiful porcelain owl with a heart in the form of a necklace.

If I started wearing these, I would definitely start feeling its texture as I talked like a nervous tick! Now…which color? Find them here.

Daydream in Elephants

Since my trip to Thailand a few years ago, I’ve loved elephants. They are sweet gentle giants. Of course, they don’t ride bicycles and paint in the wild like they do at the shows and zoo there, but their fuzzy faces and large eyes just make me smile. I’ve noticed these cute little animals on just about everything nowadays and I thought it’d be fun to show you how you can surround yourself with them if you also share my love of elephants. A lot of these home items would be oh so cute in a nursery or children’s room as well! Do you like elephants? What other animals do you love?

Daydream in Watercolor

When I was in elementary school, I started taking watercolor classes. It was one of the few classes I took in my parents’ attempt to stimulate my brain that really stuck with me. It was held in the upstairs of a bright yellow wood building labelled “Ned’s Deli.” The mom and pop that owned the place rented out the upper level for our classes. I remember looking forward to every Saturday afternoon and the cookies my classmates and I would go buy downstairs that spoiled our appetite! We painted flowers, scenery, and learned techniques. It was such an escape even as a little kid. I still have a huge stack of paintings I had done when I was a kid and I think I was better then than I would be now!

To this day, the beauty of watercolor still strikes a chord with me. Something about how you have to paint with no abandon because once that paintbrush hits the paper, there’s no undoing or erasing. It just is. Also, in life, it wasn’t until graduating college that I was confident enough to embrace the boldness in color of other types of painting and even in clothes. I was always that shy girl in the corner that spoke and acted in the often softer colors of watercolors. I’ve noticed the use of watercolor blending with design nowadays. I’m loving this trend! I love the mix of it with typography and its subtle sweetness it adds to everything.

What do you think? Do you prefer lighter or brighter colors?
