Art Appreciation: Minted x West Elm


Being an Art History major, I've always had a very unique appreciation for art and artists, which is why I'm thrilled to announce that Minted and West Elm have come together to bring you an exclusive new art collection. West Elm shares Minted's passion for supporting independent artists. This collaboration gave Minted's community artists the unique chance to have their work sold in West Elm stores nationwide. More than 6,000 works were submitted to the design challenge! West Elm has sourced 50 pieces to sell in their stores and online, while Minted has exclusively launched 135 unique pieces from 95 artists. I love all of the statement pieces this collection has to offer. There's something for everyone!

{...and speaking of art, don't forget your kitchen! I recently partnered with Williams-Sonoma and they are having a MAJOR sale, so make sure to use the code SUMMER at checkout for 20% off and FREE shipping!}

Spring Beauty Essentials With The Honest Company


 Spring is a busy time for most — especially moms! And even though Mother's Day has officially come and gone, I believe in celebrating these incredible women all the year through. A few of my friends and co-workers have recently become first-time moms, and one of my favorite ways to shower them with joy and goodness is through The Honest Company. Below are some of my personal favorites for gift basket ideas and day-to-day essentials--keeping all mothers out there "honestly" pampered and feeling their best. Save time {and money!} with these five multi-purpose Honest products that are essential for spring.

Organic Healing Balm. One of Honest's original products, this super salve has become a favorite among beauty editors. Slather it on to moisturize dry and sensitive skin or use it as a brow balm to keep unruly hairs in place.

Face + Body Lotion. This double-duty product will keep baby's skin soft and smooth while nourishing mom's nails. Perfect for stashing in the nightstand and applying to hands, nails and cuticles before bed. The lotion's aloe, olive oil and shea butter will help soften hands during sleep — talk about multitasking!

Organic Baby Powder. This talc-free formula keeps baby's bum dry and doubles as a dry shampoo for mom. It also helps extend the staying power of favorite lip color by acting as a light, powder primer.

Organic Body Oil. Give baby a bedtime massage with this moisturizing blend or tame tresses by lightly running through frizz-prone hair.

Wipes. Founder, Jessica Alba, calls these, “Cheek to Cheek” because they're just as effective on baby's bottom as they are safe for your own face. Great for re-touching makeup throughout the day or to freshen up post-workout.

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! I took my mom to Epcot's International Flower + Garden Festival. The flowers were in full bloom and it was a delightful time spent with my best friend and travel buddy.



May Blessings

"...May, more than any other month of the year, wants us to feel most alive.”

Spring Into Spring With Crane + Canopy


Spring is always the perfect time to refresh + rejuvenate one's home. I especially think it's vital to spruce up the bedroom--as this is the one room in a home that I believe should always be serene, calm + beautiful {it's what you wake up to each morning + what you go to sleep surrounded by each night!} 

One stand-out company that is sure to add some style to your life is Crane + Canopy. They offer designer bedding + decorative accents at the most affordable of prices! My absolute favorite is the Webster Quartz Gray {seen above!} which is available in both their signature nova + classic duvets. The colors bring a spring energy to the room, but are also a subtle canvas that will compliment your favorite flowers, art and accessories {like my trays, trays + more trays of jewelry!}

I have no doubt you'll become addicted to their beautiful styles--as they have something for everyone, and for all seasons.






Petunia Picks: The Figue Edit

This spring, I'm gravitating towards style that is very chic, bohemian + tribal. Something where the moment you put it on, it just speaks "calm, feminine + cool." No designer does this better than Stephanie von Watzdorf, the creative mind behind Figue {pronounced "Fig."} 

When I first discovered Figue, I immediately thought "this woman worked for Tory Burch." And yes, I was correct {I knew she was cool from the get-go!} Each collection brings out one's inner gypsy, a wanderlust for the exotic, the passionate and the spiritual. I just love the pom-poms, embroidery + tassels that make each unique piece captivating.


Spring Into Style With GiGi New York

Spring is a time for new beginnings--and updating your style is no exception! One of my favorite handbag + accessory companies is GiGi New York. They are known for their high-quality + super-chic leather products {and they have the most beautiful shades of everything!} You are sure to get compliments whilst carrying their Stella Foldover Clutch {seen above!,} Madison Crossbody or Welby Satchel {Blush Pebble Grain is heavenly!}
