Beautiful Distractions No. 5

Mercury Retrograde has made me want to Amazon Prime a helmet to my front door, sage my home and hang heeling crystals all around my body. As soon as my accountant started yelling at me about my taxes last Tuesday and The Boy’s travel plans got majorly snafooed, I knew something had to be afoot. Do you believe in Mercury Retrograde?

Sometimes home hacks are a total eye roll, but I stumbled upon 30 Clever Home Hacks for Decor Lovers, and I’ve actually got a few ideas cooking in my head. Thought you might too!

Now that Spring is here, I can’t wait to sit on the deck and enjoy a cocktail with friends. This Hawaiian-inspired margarita has me saying, “Aloha!”
