Party In Paradise

05.11.15


Once I touched down in paradise, my party bells have gone haywire. It's like the plane wheels hit ground + sparked an inner fire, buzzing and ringing...the volume only gets higher!!! The joy, the happiness and the elation I feel is surely the result of this island's appeal. So here I go throwing myself a little make believe party - every item an obsession that I admire entirely! 9 years it has been since I've lived in Oahu + it's never felt better. THAT for sure won't be argued.

So go along, indulge in my obsessions + let your first party rain down with the grandest of possessions!

Goodbye and farewell my dearest mainland friends. As you are reading this I'm most likely mid-flight alongside my crew of Liliens. We're most likely exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally - but no doubt huddled together quite cozily. To keep my mental balance amidst this transition I'll focus on the stars in my children's eyes. They, too, are on the forefront of their new lives - and if ever a fleeting doubt shall arise, I know I just need to indulge in their amazement and gaze into their eyes. Looking back at how we arrived at this journey - my mind meanders through moments of mercy and how just like that life can go topsy-turvy. In reflection, I've often pondered..."If you are grateful for the outcome, are you then to feel glad that it happened?" I still don't have the answer for that, but am confident returning to our magic island the answer will be unraveled. Historically, I've kept a pretty tight ship 'round here regarding personal affairs - always leaving you with lots to wonder in your head upstairs. That may begin to change ever so subtly - as I've realized the colorful chapters of my life, both dark + astounding, could potentially service someone triumphantly. I can't promise anything or supply you a date in which to expect said personal admissions - but when I do, you'll know and will hopefully gain from my personal harrowed intuitions. But for now, bid us a jovial farewell - and when we reach the other side, I promise to I'll bring you all up to speed on all things tropical + swell. Be patient, you may experience some radio silence in the interim - this SH*Z is about to go bananas all things considerin'.  See you on the flip side! XXX MRS

For a SWANGIN' Good Time

05.07.15


Swangin'-good-time.jpg

Whether your an innie or an outtie, there's a swing that's perfect for you! Be it on the porch, hung from a tree, or suspended in quiet corner with a view. Not only does a swing add a touch of whimsy to the art of sitting - it also caters to a loftier level of leisuring that I find fabulously befitting. I myself purchased the Serena + Lily rattan swing (6) and use it as my office chair - The hanging aspect has done wonders on my lower back AND twirling about at my desk is such delightful affair. That being said, I want swings hung all over my house - inside, outside, at the head of the dining table and descending from tree bows. I'm pretty sure it'll be my decor obsession - after all swinging seats are pretty much Hawaii perfection. Get inspired, do something different - hang one at the head of your dining table, and make it known the choice was deliberate!

All I want for Mother's Day...

Oh, STOP! It's not like I'm asking for a villa in the south of France! Just a few tokens of love and appreciation to reward my mothering stance. And really, who WOULDN'T want all of the above?! To be gifted with such reckless abandon, is the greatest sign of love! Plus, asking a mom to pick just ONE wish, is really rather repressive - you couldn't even bear the thought of making mommy feel burdened or depressive! So, take my advice and just gift her the whole ludicrous lot of loot - She'll feel so loved, appreciated, and utterly wooed!
