{everyday beautiful life: coco & kelley}

I’ve been stoked about this post since the day she said yes. Today we have the amazing Cassandra of Coco & Kelley for our {Everyday Beautiful  Life} guest post.  I’m especially appreciative because she was able to get her post in to me despite a very busy schedule and speaking engagement at Blog Out Loud this past week. Cassandra’s blog led her to open a creative styling business that offers consulting on personal style, interiors, wedding design, and merchandising. A little bird tells us she’s working on a wedding blog, too.

{1} Handwritten notes are so rare these days, so I love giving and receiving them! Of course, the most beautiful part (besides the message) is the gorgeous stationery. I have boxes and boxes full of letterpressed cards that make me so happy every time I pull them out.

{2} I love a well set table. and, why wait for a special occasion? I enjoy putting together a table for two for no reason at all – a small bunch of flowers, a few candles, and linen napkins. makes a Tuesday night feel much more fabulous!

{3} When all else fails to cheer me up, my girlfriends can always make me feel thankful for their friendship and all the little things. Of course, a cupcake picnic would make things even better!

{4} I am a dress addict. I think half my closet is taken up by purchases that I simply couldn’t resist because nothing makes me feel more fabulously feminine than a well cut dress! And when I can’t afford them, i still love to drool over them – especially if they happen to be as gorgeous as these pieces from the Lanvin bridal collection!

{5} Flowers & books should always go hand in hand. I love creating a quiet little corner of my home for a small library and fresh florals. They create instant tranquility and a little escape from the madness of daily life.

{6} One of the things that makes me happiest is treasure hunting! Flea markets, thrift stores, antique malls… I’m like a kid in a candy store. the unique little pieces I find always bring new life to my home, and I love the idea of finding a new purpose for old pieces.

{7} No matter who they’re from, random acts of love never fail to make life more beautiful, especially when they’re unexpected and creative!

{8} Sometimes what we really need when life gets crazy is silence… and what better place to seek refuge than a hot bath? Those little indulgences and moments of getting away from it all are rare, so its important to make time for ourselves to be still and breathe.
