Patio Decor Ideas

Colorful patio decor  //  www.cupcakesandcutlery.comThe weather in sunny southern California allows us to pretty much sit outside year round.  And it’s killing me that my family doesn’t have a ridiculously cool outdoor set up to chill out in.  Next week I’m sharing my little outdoor oasis that my husband put together for me for Mother’s Day, but my dream fresh air experience has tons of bright patio decor.  In my opinion, you can’t have too many colors.  I’d take my wine, magazines and a patio playlist to my al fresco living space and relax all weekend long.  Here are some more great patio decor ideas for my dream patio:

Sassy Spring Love List for Diet Pepsi


I love to share items and inspiration that I am into at the moment.  Diet Pepsi sponsored this post so I could show you all how I plan to freshen up our new home and my spring wardrobe with a Sassy Spring Love pepsi sassy spring listI love how Diet Pepsi is keeping things fresh and bringing in fantastic designers to create updated cans.  As you know, we are about to move in to a new house and I am SO looking forward to freshening up our decor.  While some of the big pieces will stay, we are hoping to update with some bold new accessories and rugs.  And since our new backyard is beautifully landscaped, these bright melamine plates from West Elm would be perfect for al fresco dinners.  Even though I’ve been living in jeans and t-shirts while I pack up the house, I am currently coveting printed pants in something other than denim.  And the colors I’m gravitating towards are rich brights.  Do you freshen up for spring?  What would be on your Sassy Spring Love List?

Diet Pepsi has asked a number of great bloggers to share their lists.  Follow along on twitter at #loveeverysip

I also wanted to quickly point out that while trying upgrade our computer ourselves, we lost use of Illustrator, photoshop, etc.  So this collage was done with an online program.  I had no idea how to resize the images so the Diet Pepsi can remains massive.  That was not done in a blatant “BUY DIET PEPSI THIS INSTANCE OR ELSE” sort of way.  Just wanted you to know that.

Thank you to Diet Pepsi for compensating me on this post.  I love Diet Pepsi’s Love List promotion and am happy to be a part of it.  All opinions and good taste are mine.





Spring Playlist

Here is what I am listening to right now.  I still really like lilting vocals, electronic sounds and big melodies but I can see some rock creeping back in.  Which makes sense considering summer for me is all about classic rock.  I’m obsessed with the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs.  Like, a lot.  What are you currently listening to?

Honeydew Intimates

Black and Tan lace bralet by honeydew intimatesSo I’m totally in love with this new-to-me brand, Honeydew Intimates.  I’m not a lingerie kinda gal.  So what I love about their stuff is that it is playful and sweet, totally sexy and totally wearable.  This black and tan set it my favorite!  The way the underwear are cut it super flattering and these bralets are darling!  I love how thin the bra straps are.  They are totally delicate and don’t look tacky peeking out from a top.

Blue and Yellow set by Honeydew IntimatesThe cotton is super soft and the colors that they use are young and vibrant.  How cute is this nightie and underwear set?!  Those yellow bows are the cutest.
