Broken is Beautiful

Kintsugi— the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold lacquer. Yep. That is a thing, and it’s way more beautiful than you’re imagining. Much like Hygge, the definition of kintsugi encapsulates a concept rather than just a clear cut definition of something tangible. Kintsugi is like the antidote to the consumer driven, planned obsolescence of our present. By celebrating imperfections, kintsugi points to a more sustainable future. Mending everything from pottery, to floors, to fabrics, kintsugi really is quite cool. And while the urge to immediately start breaking your stuff will be strong, you must resist. Just check out these amazing photos that show how beautiful broken can be.

The Only Bedding You’ll Ever Need

Fact: A good night’s sleep is just as important to overall health as diet and exercise. Fact: Sometimes the only thing that stands between you and a restful sleep is a thin layer of bedding.   So I realized a long time ago that when it comes to bedding, you have to search for quality above all else. Seriously, we spend a third of our lives sleeping. Let’s make it worth it.

I went to DC and I stayed in this pretty fancy hotel. Long story short, this hotel had the most comfortable bedding I’ve ever felt. It was unbelievable. I stripped the bed in search of product tags. It was that serious, y’all. Anyway, the company that produced these incredible bed linens is Pacific Coast Feather Company. As soon as I got home, I placed an order for the pillows and comforters. You guys, you just have to experience this to know what I’m talking about. This is truly the most comfortable bedding you’ll ever own. Best part: it’s affordable and super durable. I mean, think about it, hotel rooms get way more traffic than your bedroom at home, or at least I hope so, and this bedding not only holds up but maintains that level of comfort. Right now they’re having a sale on comforters and pillows. Check it out, you guys! You can thank me later.

Target Launches Project 62 and It is Amazingtastic

I’ve recently been obsessed with mid century modern furniture and home decor. To be honest, while I still love the whole Scandinavian minimalist style, I’m finding more and more that when you have kids and pets, you can’t have nice things. Okay, you can have nice things so long as they are functional, hard to break, and easy to clean. I find myself constantly replacing a lot of damaged or dingy things around the house. No bueno. That’s why I’m completely over the moon for this new home decor line from Target. Project 62 is the perfect marriage of form, function, and affordability. Seriously, this line speaks for itself. Check out the pics below and enjoy free shipping on purchases of $35 or more!

This Kitchen Remodel Cost Less Than $600!

I was standing in my kitchen last night, literally counting all the things I would change if I had $50,000. Yep. Thursday nights y’all. New flooring, new backsplash, new island, new cabinets. All that. But alas, I don’t have $50K to spend on anything, let alone a remodel of a kitchen that pretty much functions. So as I sunk into Pinterest-kitchen-coveting despair, I came across the most awesome DIY kitchen remodel I’ve ever seen.

Prepare to be amazed. This is what a little creativity and a weekend of work looks like. This dramatic remodel was not only inexpensive, but also relatively simple! See for yourself. UK blogger, Wendy Gilmour of Thank Fifi, shows us how a little bit of chalk paint, concrete, and stickers —yes, I said stickers, so let your 8-year-old self rejoice!—can transform a kitchen in just one weekend. Check out these amazing pics!
