There is nothing more soothing or relaxing than sitting by a campfire. Although it makes my hair smell for days, the smell of campfire instantly brings back memories of Summer fun. It is something I look forward to every Summer, along with s’mores and roasting marshmallows. During the cooler months, I’m usually a hermit crab in my home and I don’t have a fireplace. To bring the outdoors in, during those cold months, I fill my home with tons of candles. There is something so inviting and welcoming that I love about them.
To bring the comfort of a campfire into my home, without spending tons of money, I rely for WookWick candles. When burning, they make a popping noise just like a campfire and burn in a way that is reminiscent to how a fire would burn. Over the years I have noticed that WoodWick candles not only last longer than other brands but they burn evenly so you aren’t throwing away a candle that is only half melted (which is one of my biggest pet peeves!) Currently, there are tons of new Spring scents but my favorites are still always the woody, outdoor smells like sand and driftwood or fireside.

Have you ever wanted to surf or do you already? How about creating your own tribute to the world of surfing in your bedroom or home office? You can easily make this theme apparent in your home with a few surfer cool touches.
1. Print out a few tidal maps and frame theme in drift wood frames.
2. If this is a baby’s room you can find cute hand made surf mobiles – I came across this one on a site dedicated to all things surf decor.
3. Inspiration central – pull posters from surf magazines that inspire you. Whether it is the best surfer in the world like Kelly Slater or up and comer like Matt Meola. Make sure to get both guys and girls regardless of the gender of the occupant of the room.
4. Use netting, old surfboards, surf wax or other items that have a beach/ocean theme to it and use as decor or decor inspiration.
5. Paint the walls in dark blues, greens or go with bright turquoise and whites.
I created this blog with the intention to focus on design elements. Whether that be design throughout the home, outfits, outdoor spaces, etc. Today, I want to talk about bringing design into your workplace. Although I may not have a degree in design, I consider myself a pretty perpetual visual designer. Not only do I love to bring design and flair to my home but also into my workplace.
If you have to be at work 40 hours a week why not make it fun? I find myself a lot more motivated and inspired when I’m in a uniquely designed space. To bring some of my fun flair into work I make sure to bring in colorful items to my work space, I never skimp on exhibit manufacturers design when creating projects and I make sure add personal touches.
Easter is all about rebirth, growth, and revival. It’s a wonderful time of year to reflect, recharge and be thankful for all that has been provided. Even if you are not religious, you may feel inspired to bring a little Easter decor into the home.
If you have kids, this is a great way to get them involved and to teach them a little about the meaning and significance. As you are decorating easter eggs or hanging decorations like this Easter themed garland from Pottery Barn Kids, you can share in the joy of this season and celebrate the arrival of Spring.
It’s a good time too with the election of a new Pope in the Catholic church, some might even wonder if there was more of a plan to this timely occurrence. Regardless of what’s happening in the news, your faith and religious beliefs, this is a good time to broach the subject of religion with your kids and decorating the home to embrace and feel the season of spring.
