Just Inspire Me…

Oh my do I love this bathroom. After I found this I remembered that I barely posted any of my “outfit” posts from Hawaii. So because this jogged my memory…I feel like the landscape and my outfit well resembles this dreamy tropical bathroom!

Booooo.. Summer is almost over! And we are winding things down into slightly cooler weather. There are going to be cooler days and chilly nights. And before you know it (as all the Halloween decorations are starting to show up!) it will be FALL.

I love fall. Fall for fashion, fall for crisp air. But NOT fall INSTEAD of summer. 

Fall also means my birthday is coming up – yay! Closer to being 30….

 

Happy Thursday lovelies!

How was your weekend? Ours was the right blend of fun with friends and low key times with Pups and the fiancé.

And there was plenty of sunshine!

There is something to say about evening sunshine. The warmth of the day. The potential of a next day tan. And remembering the day of warmth and great memories.

Happy Monday evening!

Leaving for a trip is always such an experience. You are excited to go somewhere new/different…but sad to leave home.

But I really don’t like packing…

Luckily I won’t be gone for too long. But a break is needed…and wanted. And this Canadian goose needs some sunshine on her skin and warmth on her face.

Won’t be too long my lovelies! Follow along on Instagram @lovenataliechong

Let’s get back to this whole blogging thing. I know you all love Interior of the day, but I have wanted to switch things up for awhile. Although I am in interior design, I find inspiration from almost anywhere: Pinterest, magazines, blogs, Tumblr pages, homes, restaurants, food – you name it. So there is going to be a change, some new features (creative titles/names have yet to come), and some old ones (Let’s Get Real seems to be an oldie but a goodie).

I want to share more things, and more beauty in all things design.

Would love to hear some feedback if you care to share your opinions. It should be a good mix of everything that inspires me. Less of a schedule more of a journal of sorts, a collection of ideas – back to good old blogging.

Thanks for sticking with me, and for all the love.

Well we threw a little party! We did!

The BF has a birthday every year just about that time around Christmas when people come back. When people are in the mood for some serious parties. That wonderful time of year where everyone is filled with love and cheer.

So being…well me. I had to throw him a party. I kept it simple. Canadian and casual. Festive Casual I called it. Using some of the few details I had from last years party…I had gold votives, pine branches, and log candle holders and personally calligraphed names on each persons birch coaster! It was awesome!

Apparently the sister and I were the epitome of “festive casual”…which was wonderful!

We had lovely food, about 40 people and everyone came out to celebrate that guy – which is more then I could ask for!

Have a lovely day, thanks for following!
