Weekend


WEEKEND53


Last night Raya and I snuggled in bed together and watched an episode of Barefoot Contessa. It wasn’t anything out of the ordinary for a Friday night, but watching Ina make these chocolate peanut butter globs had us both glued to the tv. And it was so special and sacred to share it with her. I was in heaven. Need to make them with Raya soon {she loves baking}. Or these.

+ Speaking of Ina. I already pre-ordered her new cookbook, Make It Ahead. I swear by her recipes and she has never ever let me down.

+ Have you seen the Sophia Webster shoe line for J.Crew? A lot of is already sold out but I’m keeping my eye out for these. And these.

+ The floor is being laid in R + M’s rooms this week. Yup, they are going to separate. I’m hooked on the idea of a play bakery or grocery store in one of their rooms. These are incredibly fun to look at. DIY dreaming.

+ I am such a big fan of Brandy Pham’s jewelry and think this ring is uh-mazing!

+ Pretty much adore this article about the art of thank you notes. And wholeheartedly believe that nothing can replace a handwritten note. Like this.

+ We had the best time cake painting and making this beauty. Time for you to order your painted cake from Cakery!

+ All I want for Mother’s Day is a gardenia bush in our backyard. It’s true. So I can have this.

Happy graduation to my brilliant sister Gavi. Know big things are ahead.

Have a fab weekend!

xoxo,

Niki

Weekend


426


It’s going to be mellow and hot this weekend as we start diving into a long Florida summer….

+ We are headed to see Jimmy Buffet live which always makes for the best people watching. Ever. And makes me want to drink about 3 of these.

+ And maybe wear this? Or this little romper?

+ Saks is still on Friends & Family {25%} off through April 28th. I did a little damage this week, and am madly in love with this top. It literally looks good on every body type. Trust me.

+ J.Crew is also  30% off and I’ve had my eye on these shiny shoes for the summer. And this dress for Raya. Maybe we can learn to share this pineapple?

+ Working on decorating R + M’s future rooms and can’t get this comforter out of my head. And this light fixture. I’m a tad ombre obsessed. You can see many of my ideas for the rooms here.

+ Speaking of the kids. This article is making me feel guilty about my attachment and addiction to my phone. A good read.

+ Mase is obsessed with his latest basketball class which puts me over the moon. And makes me want to invest in another pair of sneakers. Yes, I’m that mom.

+ Neutrals for summer. Sign me up. Like this above image. Which means I’ll need to bulk up on the tanning essentials. Thanks Maskcara.

Have a lovely little weekend!

Family Art

Allow me to gloat for a moment…

This month, Architectural Digest featured an article on John Mellencamp’s home on Daufuskie Island in South Carolina. The home was decorated by the renown designer, Monique Gibson.

Mellencamp’s home is beautiful and clean, yet has an industrial depth and darkness to it that is incredibly serene. But the part I really wanted to gloat about is that many of the drawings that Gibson chose for the walls and decor were created by Marvin Cherney. Cherney was Cole’s great uncle. He was also the twin brother to Cole’s beloved grandmother, Judy. {Yes, we do have more twins in our family}

It meant so much to me to see the works of Cole’s family showcased in a lovely way on such a grand stage.

Truly amazed to be in a family with so much creativity and talent. Beaming from ear to ear…

Niki
