feeling the need for some major playtime.
time to relax, time to do nothing, time full of laziness.
somehow my mind correlates that with mexican food & margaritas.
here are a few good things that will remind you of being lazy in the sun.
someone out there go play...

essential bing...

i'm not a huge fan of jewelry. a girl should have a few pieces that can be worn for every occasion.
here are a few things that i love. the coil bracelet & ring are made from recycled precious metals-i wear them daily! i love over sized pieces like the flower ring & smokey quartz wrapped ring. also, loving these new braided bracelets. good things...

day dreaming...

dreaming of having a lovely spot to sit outside, entertain, & relax.
simple spaces with clean lines.
sounds like a summer time project. i'll keep you posted

mind, body, & soul...

my mind, body, & soul feel like summer.
it's a time for staying up late & sleeping in.
motivation for anything productive seems to be a struggle. my blogging is taking a hit.
with that said, the store is getting busy. the cases are full of new lovely jewelry; i have tons of dreamy clothes in stock; & new friends are discovering how to have "modern island living"-even if you don't live on an island.
happy days of summer.

one happy girl...

i'm one happy girl... sometimes it doesn't take much.
yesterday, i got my favorite soap in the mail. i'm addicted to "ZUM" patchouli soap. it's made with goat's milk.
so addicted, that i order a brick of soap @ a time & cut it into bars.
it's the best thing in the world..... i've been using indigo wild soap for about 4 years. i started buying it when i lived in dallas, i stocked up for moving to kauai, & NOW- thank goodness for on-line ordering.
every night i take a long bath, use my ZUM, & watch my shows-PURE HEAVEN!
(this comes from a girl who moved to hawaii & brought a soaking bathtub with me).
topping off my soap excitement, indigo wild sent an aloha note in my box. you've gotta love that.
indigo wild has all natural products. check out them out
you can smell good too...
*mark even buys me soap for my anniversary-i love my ZUM!

get floored....

add some texture to your floor. chilewich is a company which produces modern table top wares & floormats. each mat may be produced in custom sizes-bound or unbound.
bungalow 9 is carrying lovely chilewich placemats, linens, & floormats (for indoor or outdoor use).

plethora of new clothes...

i just unpacked a huge box of dreamy comfy apparel by three dots.
if only my closet looked this good. now the question is- what to try on first?

one thing leads to another...

started by wearing my favorite pair of silver shoes. which lead me to
featuring new silver chilewich mats & napkin rings. which lead me to
sell a silver basket. which lead me back to where i started-SHOES.
yes, i order new shoes (not silver-what was i thinking!)

lanai time...

do you have an outdoor space?
one great thing about living in a warm climate is many homes have extensions of their living spaces.
anyone can create a great lanai. just add some cool furniture, lanterns, pillows, & an umbrella.
i have several new outdoor things @ bungalow 9-candle lanterns, outdoor pillow, new outdoor furniture lines.
it's tempting to take it all home. let's just say my lanai is on the to do list- well mark's to do list.
be inspired...

summer time...

it's happened...
all the brain cells in our house have turned off (including mine). its SUMMER people.
the last day of school-can you say HAPPY! i feel less stress in the air already.
summer 2010 means sleeping in; staying up late; a first job; hopefully some downtime & pure laziness. no more hour drives to school & homework-thank the lord. we've offically been in kauai for 2 years. the boys have changed so much. they've adjusted, grown, & endured. we might just survive this adventure.

we must celebrate with homemade mexican food, mark @ home, & modern family.
may we all have a blissful summer of relaxation.
