Scott Naismith

I really love these landscapes from Scottish painter Scott Naismith
They perfectly capture the beauty of those real life moments you can't believe are actually happening. In nature. 
Those sunrises and sunsets that almost seem like they were made just for you and your admiration alone.

Hwy 1 Road Trip Playlist {with Turo}

Highway 1 & Big Sur. 
 I teamed up with Turo, a new car-sharing service that allows you to rent other people's cars, to bring you a sweet playlist. It's peer-to-peer, like Uber/lyft, but YOU do the driving. Turo is perfect for everyday things like runs to Ikea or road trip vacations. You can rent for a couple hours - or a couple days. 
Since they're based out of San Francisco, I thought it would be fun to feature a road trip playlist inspired by Highway 1 in Northern California. Big Sur, Carmel, beautiful scenic drives that I have been fortunate enough to travel on several times now.

Door by Nice As F*#k

GURL POWER! 
This video makes me want to make some friendship bracelets and save the world. 
After seeing NAF live last month (and being arm length from Jenny Lewis), I've been dying for them to release a peace-powered video. 
As their NAF theme song says,"We're nice as fuck, we shoot good luck."

Groovy! Peace and love, y'all.

Brazilian Bowls with Shrimp & Plantains

Brazilian Bowls with Shrimp & Plantains
Raise your hand if you love bowls? The trendy/ambiguous term for a bunch a food you eat together in a bowl. Typically healthier, sometimes not. I can't tell you the last time I ate food I made off a plate. 
When I saw the pictures for this recipe on Pinterest I was immediately obsessed. And the title: Honey Garlic Butter Shrimp In Coconut Milk, I mean how yummy and summery does that sound?! 
If you like looking at pictures of bowls and other unusual foods paired together, please check out Half Baked Harvest.

*note: I followed the recipe exact, but used Goya frozen fried plantains instead of doing it myself. 

What food blogs are you salivating over lately?

Lady Cave {Chairish}

I teamed up with Chairish, an exclusive curator approved - online marketplace for vintage furniture, to bring you my dream "Lady Cave." 
My parents have an under-the-sea themed basement since my dad is a scuba diver (see: seashells, under water pictures, and even a themed Christmas tree that's up all year long). 
If I ever have a basement I would love to borrow from that idea and 60's Tiki bars. 
I'm thinking... palm wallpaper, an actual Tiki bar, pineapples, flamingos, wicker furniture, a real aquarium, a neon sign. A little vacation all year long. 
A big inspiration for this is Lost Lake - a hip Tiki bar in Chicago with potent drinks. I'm obsessed with their whole vibe. 
These vintage bar stools from Chairish are exactly the look I'm going for! How cute! 
above: I want palm on palm on palm on palm (source )// lots of tropical plants, and peacock chairs (source)
below: painted pineapples - GENIUS! (source )// these copper pineapple goblets at the bar (source)
above: fully stocked bar cart (source)
below: a neon sign would be fun, words or maybe a flamingo (source) // party all the time (source)

What would your Lady Cave look like??
