Make A Wish

So, today's my birthday. I thought I'd make a few birthday wishes. Nothing fancy or particularly life-altering, just a few pretty things. I've been eyeing this mustard-colored blouse ($35) at Shopruche.com for sometime now. It comes in a variety of colors and will lend a vintage flair to any outfit. The mini handbag from Madewell is charming and comes in a perfect neutral color that goes with anything. The shoes, also from Madewell, are remarkably cute, and make me think of a French girl. The sweater, from Anthropologie, while pricey, is adorable in person. And who couldn't use a bright pink sun hat as the warm weather approaches, or a lime-colored bow cape for the breezy evenings in Santa Cruz?

Bathroom Makeover

My bathroom is a sad place. While the rest of my small beach bungalow has had some sense of attention paid to its interior design, I've left the bathroom undecorated since I moved in a year-and-a-half ago. I've been aching to re-vamp it, but with limited funds, that can be tricky. Still, it can't hurt  to day-dream a little and imagine what I'd do with the small space I have. This zig zag shower curtain (below) from Urban Outfitters has been on my wish list for a long time. It's $44 which seems  steep for a shower curtain, but the look would inject color and a little pizazz into the space. Throw in a sweet bar of soap from Blithe and Bonny (find  at Anthropologie or Three Little Birds in Capitola), an IKEA cabinet, bubble bath from Saffron and Genevieve in Santa Cruz and towels from Anthropologie and I'll be well on my way to a sweet bathroom makeover.
