#10Things August 21

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared a #10Things post (I think somehow since May?!)–taking a bit of an online-break, collaborating with other creatives again (the Summer Backyard Collection Alex Marshall and I designed together), getting a change of scenery (our trip down to Ojai and most recently, Santa Cruz)… has all been so good to me.

Hope you’re all staying healthy and making the most of these slow times. And I’m happy to be sharing some recent finds with you again! I might need to cut this #10Things down to 5 for fall to give myself a bit of a break. HAHA. xx

Home Decor: Pillow Swap

You know I’ve been craving color in every aspect this year–from style to home decor–and simply adding some bright pillows and swapping them throughout our house has made all the difference in my mood. My favorite source for colorful pillows and textiles is St. Frank–and they’ve given me a code to share with you for $25 off any order over $150.  (St. Frank Code: ALICIASPALS25)

Also love these neutral pillows from Jenni Kayne to mix in with the color or to lighten a dark couch.  (Jenni Kayne Code: ALICIA20 for 20% off)

DIY Art Project: Sun Prints

A few girlfriends inspired me this summer to make sun art with Rex. It’s so simple and a fun art project to do with all ages. You can find the paper at local art stores or of course trusty Amazon. I shared a little video after a few requests to see how they’re made!

Shop: The Best Beach Blanket

I picked up these multicolored beach blankets while in Ojai and they’re just so great for rolling up and throwing in your bag for on-the-go outings. They come in fun neon striped colors and are a great option for throwing down with toddlers.

Watch: Martha Knows Best

If you’re looking for a show to zone out to–my friend gave me the tip to turn into Martha Stewart’s new HGTV show On Demand–Martha Knows Best. I sorta fell in love with Martha all over again… love that she’s truly herself in this, is close friends with Snoop Dog, and her garden / property is insane. Each episode gives various gardening tips–if you’re in that gardening mode it’s worth a watch!

Shop: High-Rise Denim

Since I’m continuously asked about denim–I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite Re/Done styles: the ideal high-rise skinny. (I size down!)

Read: Dream Travel Destinations

I keep quizzing Tanner on where he wishes he was or the first trip he’d want to go on–how are you feeling about international travel once things open up? For a virtual travel escape, Porter Magazine Editors are dishing on their dream travel destinations.

Listen: The Art of Travel

My friend Olivia Lopez launched a new travel focused podcast this week: The Art of Travel–this first episode with Yolanda Edwards, former Creative Director of CN Traveler and founder of YOLO magazine, gave me all of the wanderlust! But I also loved her thoughts on “intentional travel” once things open up back up.

Shop: Workout Gear–Bandier’s Sale

One thing that has really motivated me to workout has been a weekly workout with my neighbors in my front yard. We train together on Tuesday and Thursdays and it’s been so fun. Seeing all of their coordinating workout gear made me want to up my ante a bit for fall so I just picked up a few new pieces from Bandier’s sale (up to 30% off savings now). Am I too late to get on board with tie-dye?
