I’m 99% certain that whoever is in charge of shoes over at Madewell is blessed from heaven with a special ability to make me melt. Seriously, I don’t think there is a single shoe that I wouldn’t wear.
Also, I feel the need to confess that I put this post together just so my mom would know what to get me for my birthday in May… and I wear a size 6… don’t judge me.
What’s you favorite pick? I would definitely have to say the tan leather wedges, so in love with them!
Find all of these styles, right here.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I feel like summer essentials are just one of those things that change every year. I almost never wear the same bathing suit two years in a row, and my beach bag almost always looks like it’s been through a tsunami at the end of just one season, let alone trying to make it through two. Granted, this could have something to do with my getting bored easily, but it is what it is.
Am I the only one that trades everything out each year? Please say you do too so that I feel a little less shamed. Nonetheless, this my current summer wish list. Also I should add that my summer wish lists never actually fully purchased (if at all) so don’t think of me as too fancy, we’re just wishing here.
P.s.- My little summer secret is to buy multiple tops to mix and match with basic bottoms, which makes it easy to switch it up without the extra cost. Do you have any summer essential secrets of your own to share?
1 Urban Outfitters donut pool float, $18 // 2 Zara women’s leather sandals, $59 // 3 Anthro maajii bikini top, $65 // 4 Bumble & Bumble surf spray // 5 Latitude blue striped beach towel, $45 // 6 Topshop polka dot strappy cover up // 7 J. Crew anchor bikini top, $54

Hands down one of my favorite food bloggers is Melissa, the magician and all around sweetheart behind The Faux Martha. Not only does she have pictures pretty enough to take a bite out of, but if there is a tip or trick to be had, she’s got that too.
For a little last minute Easter weekend prep, I picked out a few recipes to try over your (hopefully) long weekend…
pictured bird’s nest macaroons
Always a favorite, mascarpone french toast.
A sure way to anyone’s heart, salted dark chocolate nutella cookies.
And a fun last minute addition to Easter eggs, homemade marshmallows.

For all of you that have ever swooned over the pretties used in Sugar & Cloth recipe photos, fret no more. I have three words for you, Shop Sweet Lulu. I only added the extra sweet to the post title to emphasize awesomeness, and trust me, it’s well deserved…
Also, can I just brag for a second about how I have three whole drawers dedicated to pretty cake items in the new house? This is quite the upgrade since before I had to shove them in a drawer, in a spare closet, never to be seen again. It’s the little things.
clockwise left to right balloon tassels, $30 // five pink bakery boxes, $5 // cake plate clings, $15 // striped straws, $4 // limoncello baking cups, $8.50 // jade cake stands, $40-$65 // berry baskets, $5 // drilled wooden spoons, $9.50 // assorted mini tapers $4

Originally I had planned on making an unconventional Christmas tree DIY using tulle and lights, but it really, really didn’t pan out. In fact, now that I actually write out “tulle Christmas tree”, I probably should have known..
On a brighter note, I’ve been hoarding this DIY wheeled create idea in the back of my mind for some time now, and I decided it would be a perfect double-duty solution for the holidays for traveling presents and organizing them once they’re opened. Clever, no? Okay, so maybe Santa thought of it first, but it’s still debatable.
- Wooden crate ($7 at Home Depot)
- 4 x Caster wheels
- Screws for the casters
- Spray paint (optional)
All you have to do to make this wheeled crate is spray paint the crate (unless you like the au naturale look), and then screw the wheels onto the bottom. It’s really simple, but packs a big punch!
