I have documented my love of Amy Merrick's beautiful floral arrangements and photography on the blog before. Her latest shoot with Parker Fitzgerald for Kinfolk magazine is absolutely stunning and inspiring. I had to share.

I love how soft the photos are. Here are some ideas for bringing this pretty floral feel into your life...

This weekend I cleaned. I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. Literally the whole weekend. It was exhausting but I feel so much better. Sometimes the clutter really weighs you down and you dont realize until you have taken 10 trips to the garbage and 2 trips to the Goodwill that you have so much stuff. Too much really. So now, I am going for simple. Simple and organized. Here is some spring cleaning inspiration for you...

Note: I realize that this is taking a totally contradictory approach than my last post, but a girl is allowed to change her mind, right?

Ever since I got a queen mattress upgrade about a month ago, I have been deciding what to do about my new bed area. I like the basics that I have but would like to add a little bit of personality. My recent trip to Paris has me craving something more traditional and calm, on a backdrop of white to make it more modern. Here are my inspirations...

This is the final round of Paris pictures and boy are they good ones. These pictures are from the largest and perhaps most well known chateau in all of Europe,Versailles. A word to the wise, dont go shopping after going to Versailles, nothing will seem gold or sparkly enough;-)




I hope you are enjoying the pictures from Paris. Below are pics from a walk through the magical neighborhood of St. Germain, Les Invalides, Napoleon's tomb, and finally, a sneak inside the hotel I stayed at, des Grands Hommes. I love this little boutique hotel. Each of the rooms are decorated so beautifully with fabric on the walls and antique details. It also is in a fantastic location in the young, vibrant Latin Quarter and close by to all of the sites.
