Valentine BB's

Can't believe I'm celebrating my 7th Valentine's Day with Eddie, that curly head bb! We don't go cray on v-day, some years we've even just stayed at home and enjoyed a low-key dinner at our place. But we've been so busy with work and the move to our new house recently, we decided to enjoy a night out this year. I'm not sure where we're going, but Eddie made rezzies somewhere he says is "perfect", so I'm excited kakaka

Our Home Journey

Our Home Journey

I have some v exciting news to share with you guys - Eddie and I are moving! We just signed our new lease and the big move in date is in just a few days. Wowza! I absolutely can't WAIT to share our new home with all of you, I have so many ideas for each and every nook already. If you follow me on Pinterest you've probably noticed a flurry of new boards and a million inspo pins in the past couple weeks. But I wanted to take the time to give the place we've called home for the past 5 and a half years a lil love before we set out on our new home adventure. I also dug up some seriously cray pics of our place when we first moved in! So take a walk with me down memory lane, and keep scrolling for a little back story on Eddie and I.

A Very Merry Boho Picnic

A Very Merry Boho Picnic

You know I love good picnic sitch! My dear friend Anita Yokota has such a lovely backyard, I couldn't pass up the chance to brekky it up picnic style with her on a recent visit. We wanted it to be festive but not the usual holiday color palette - so we ditched the normal red vibes and instead incorporated lots of rich blues, ivory, plum, pale pinks & peach, and of course, fresh greenery. Also, one word - DONUTS. Keep scrolling to see all the yummy deets!

Friendsgiving 2017

Friendsgiving 2017

Eddie and I hosted our 2nd annual Friendsgiving celebration over the weekend, this time packing 10 people into our lil living room! We had so much fun, and it never felt too crowded - just super cozy, lots of floor pillow loungin'. This year I was super low key with the planning of the table setting. Whereas last year I went out and bought lots of new things (glasses, plates, table runner, punch bowl, candlesticks, etc), this year I didn't buy a single thing other than flowers. I've been trying to declutter our space, and am starting to be really picky about what I bring into our apartment - with a 700 square foot space, there's really no room for random or surplus items that aren't going to be used regularly. I also just recently donated an entire car's worth of things we weren't using anymore to our local Goodwill, and I still have more closets to clear out - eek! So this year I reused a lot of things from last Friendsgiving, but changed a few key elements so that the table still felt new and fresh.

Black & Blooms Turns 1

Black & Blooms Turns 1

It's bonkers to me that yesterday was the one year anniversary of when I set Black & Blooms live. What started as just a lil creative outlet and simply a way to get my photos off my computer and out into the world, has turned into this amazing community where I've met some of the most talented individuals, many of whom are now good friends. The past year has had its ups and downs as I've navigated this blogging world that I really had zero clue about starting out - mostly ups though, and it's all thanks to people like you, who take time out of your day to follow along and read my posts or follow my journey on Instagram, always leaving me the sweetest messages and making me feel so supported - I'm very thankful to you for that! I wanted to share a few things I've learned this past year, and tips for anyone who's been thinking of starting their own blog.

Halloween Costumes Past & Present

Halloween Costumes Past & Present

As my 3 year old niece once repeated for an hour straight until we put the movie on for her, "I wantttt to waaaatchhhh MOAAANNAAAA!" I'm so happy there are finally more Disney princess films with strong females that kick butt, whose main storyline isn't falling in love with a dude who saves her from whatever trouble she gets into. Seriously, how cool is Moana?? I cry every time I watch the movie/listen to the soundtrack, that music hits me hard! So obvi I knew what one of my Halloween costumes had to be this year.
