Baggu Bucket Bag

August 18, 2014

I don’t know why it took me so long to get a bucket bag, but so glad I finally did. I’ve been eying these Baggu bags for awhile but could never decide between black or tan. And then I came across this cream one on Need Supply Co and you know there was no hesitation. I love everything about this bag – its simplicity, classic shape, neutral color, buttery soft leather… everything. So perfect.
What’s your go-to bag??

Leather Goods | Indigo

August 14, 2014

Introducing an amazing collaboration between Parc Boutique and Solid Mfg. Co. I’m sure you all know my love and admiration for both these companies – Parc’s exquisite style and aesthetic, Solid Mfg. Co’s impeccably handcrafted leather goods. Put them together and of course you’ll get nothing but beautiful creations. I’ve shared a few pieces from Solid Mfg. Co. before – in my favorite black and nude tones, but this collection right here is in rich indigo, and they’re only available exclusively at Parc Boutique. Can we say gorgeous!?

Getting Active

I need to get active. I’ve become a sedentary bum and starting to feel pretty crappy – physically and mentally. We used to go on evening walks / jogs after dinner, which was my way of working out, unwinding, and clearing my head all in one. Now that I’m working, I literally come home, eat, shower and knock out. I’ve never wanted to let a 9 to 5 get to me, but here I am using it and making excuses. So, I started incorporating these 7 minute workouts into my evenings, and it’s made such a difference – trust me, a little goes a long way. And I’m going to start getting back into yoga soon – my body and mind will thank me for that. Even in all the busyness and exhaustion, remember to find time to take care of yourself.
How do you stay active?

T-Shirt Dress

August 11, 2014

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! You may have seen this on my Instagram, and when I say I could live in this dress, I mean, I could really live in this dress. I was looking for something simple that I can lounge around in, but also something I can wear to brunch, shop, run errands, etc, and I’m so happy to say this is the one. It is simple, soft, can be dressed up or down, and the light, flowy material is so perfect for these hot summer days.
Unfortunately, this particular one is out of stock, but there is a similar, longer version oak + fort dress BB8.
Happy Monday!

| nude pink & white marbled necklace
you know I normally gravitate towards small, delicate accessories, but I would make an exception for this A Merry Mishap beauty – the nude pink + marble combo is both unique and gorg.

| zara wool coat
I know it’s 100 degrees outside, but I’m already mentally preparing for the cool Autumn days, and I foresee this exact coat making its way to my closet and becoming a staple piece.

| rope dog leash
well, we all must walk our pups in style, right? Plus, this would match my amm necklace

| v neck tee
As if I don’t have enough basic tees in my closet… but this one is a little more dressy than the others, right? ;)

Daniel Wellington + Promo Code

July 29, 2014

LOUNGING | daniel wellington classic sheffield
black tank, cotton boyfriend shorts, black slip-ons

CASUAL | daniel wellington classic cardiff
white silk top, slouchy denim shorts, brown birkenstock

STRIPES | daniel wellington classic glasgow
white shorts, striped top, navy adidas sandals

NEUTRAL | daniel wellington classic cardiff
cropped boxy top, silk shorts, assisi sandal

I recently received my very first Daniel Wellington watch, and let me tell you, it is truly a classic, timeless beauty. I chose the classic sheffield with a silver face, but they’re all equally stunning. I love its minimal simplicity, the black genuine leather band is exquisite and goes with pretty much anything and everything in my wardrobe. But what I really love is the face size – 36 mm diameter, slim and not bulky. Since my wrists are so tiny, it was impossible to find anything that looked right – always being either too small or too large, but this is perfect. And if that’s still too big for you, they have a collection of smaller faces (26 mm diameter) with Swarovski stones.
Also, all the straps are interchangeable toward its own collection, so you can change up your timepiece by purchasing as many straps as you’d like!
Check out Daniel Wellington and let me know what your favorites are. Right now you can use the promo code OHSOPRETTY for a 15% discount on all purchases until the end of August 2014. Ships free worldwide. Doesn’t get much better than that!!

We recently moved into our new home a few months ago and have been hardcore procrastinating on decorating and furnishing. The first thing on the list was to paint over the taupe walls with white, but the white paint bucket has been sitting in the garage untouched. I’ve decided to tackle the office first so we’ll see how that goes. I want to keep it simple and minimal, obviously, so I’m trying to decide if I want it to be black and white or neutral… or perhaps a mixture of both??

Strawberry Lemonade + Printable

July 10, 2014

I love summer fruits, seriously, it’s the one of things I look forward to in the summertime – watermelon and strawberry are my absolute favorites, but I don’t discriminate, I eat all the others too ;) I shared my favorite smoothie on Instagram earlier this week and now I’m going to share my go to drink, strawberry lemonade – so refreshing, delicious, and most importantly, sooo easy to make!

Strawberry Lemonade

| 1 ½ – 2 cups strawberries
| 1 – 2 lemons (for the lemon juice)
| 3 – 4 cups water
| Agave
| Avery Square Labels 22806
| Printable Labels

makes approximately 2 cups

Combine the strawberries, water, and lemon juice into a blender. Add your desired amount of agave (depending on how sweet you like it). Blend it and voila, done!

So perfect for summer picnics, parties, and get togethers – just pour it into some glass jars and slap on these printable labels! Easy right?

Enjoy :)

Terrarium Collection

July 8, 2014

I’m pretty sure I have a terrarium obsession. There’s just something so beautiful about these little guys, but more importantly for someone like me who can’t keep anything alive, it’s a good way to have some greenery around the house without much maintenance.
I’m starting off with air plants right now, but hoping to add some others soon. Do you have any suggestions for good terrarium plants?
