Saturday Six: MAMA

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. Some links may be referral/curator links.

Hey-o! In honor of Mother’s Day tomorrow, I thought I’d do a little round-up of “Mom”-themed items. Hope that no matter what you’re doing tomorrow, you have a good one!

Saturday Six: May the 4th Be with You (Yesterday)

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. Some links may be referral/curator links.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Perhaps a taco-themed round-up would be more appropriate for today, but I wanted to recognize Star Wars Day, which was yesterday (May the 4th).

There’s no shortage of Star Wars-themed memorabilia out there, so let’s get into it!

Not your average family photo. “Victorian Wars” print by Terry Fan on Society6.

What are you planning to get into this weekend? We’ve got a soccer game tonight and a flea market tomorrow (if it isn’t raining). Whatever you do, hope it’s a good one!

Tell me: Are you a Star Wars fan?

Saturday Six: Alien

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. Some links may be referral/curator links.

In honor of Alien day this past week (April 26), I thought I’d put together a list of Alien- or extraterrestial-themed items.

Saturday Six: Desert Life

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. Some links may be referral/curator links.

Yesterday my work gave out some mini succulents in celebration of Earth Day on Sunday.

It was such a nice idea, and it sent me down the path of daydreaming about desert sun. That’s why I’m presenting six cacti-themed items today to bring a little bit of desert life into your home (or wardrobe!).

cacti1
I love Lizzie Darden’s work, and her fun, Palm Springs inspired print would be a great addition to a kitchen or dining room. Available on Society6.
cacti2
This Cactus Print Shift Dress from ASOS is perfect for ushering in spring!
cacti3
Add some desert flair to your bedroom with this coral pink cactus comforter. Design by Nature Magick on Society6. Target also had some cute cactus themed sheets, available here.
cacti4
If you’re lounging under your new comforter all day, you might as well look cute doing it. Cactus pajama set by ASOS.
cacti5
I like this pink art print by smallDrawing, available on Society6.
cacti6
I love the playful print on this short-sleeved button-up top from ModCloth.

Have a great weekend!

Tell me: Do you like succulents? Have any other desert-inspired finds to share? What are your plans for the weekend?

Saturday Six: Sweet Dreams

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. Some links may be referral/curator links.

I need a new comforter for our bedroom. I know–boring. I still need one. We originally went with a yellow/gray/white theme for the room, but I just realized that the only yellow item is the comforter, so I think it’s safe to say we can go in any direction with the color scheme.

I want something fun and inviting that makes me happy to get into bed each night (more so than I already am). Something that summons thoughts of vacation and relaxation.

Side note: What’s the difference between a comforter and a duvet? Do I need to care?

Here are some fun options I’ve found while persuing the interwebs (and some sheets, too–let’s get crazy with it).

 

black comforter with pink roses
Maybe not very exciting, but I like the simplicity of this rose comforter by PBteen.

 

comforter with pink and green flowers
While searching, I realized I was subtly channeling Blanche’s bedroom in Golden Girls. Lots of pink and green, like this comforter set from Target.

 

ice cream sheets
Speaking of Target, do you think my husband will let me get away with buying these ice cream sheets? The epitome of sweet dreams. Have you looked at their Pillowfort collection? Sure, it’s for kids, but they come in adult sizes, so I’m taking that as permission to buy. Target even has Stranger Things sheets!

 

white comforter with black cats
This comforter captures two of my favorite things: Halloween and cats. From Naranja on Society6.

 

white comforter with butts
Feeling cheeky? Let it out with this comforter from Julia Heffernan on Society6.

 

pink comforter with green palm fronds
I think this one is truly my favorite, and it brings us back to those Miami beach house vibes. By Anita’s & Bella’s Art on Society6.

Now to find Blanche’s wallpaper…

Tell me: What’s your bedroom theme? Know of any other sites selling cute comforters? What is the difference between a comforter and a duvet?
