She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not


Fun day today! I’m linking up with my best blog friend/favorite interior design blogger, Michaela, for her “She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not” series. You may remember that I was a guest-poster for the series a few months ago (find my post here!), and today, Michaela is turning her popular series into a link-up party! I don’t write too terribly much about myself here on my blog, so I thought this would be a fun way for y’all to get to know me a little more, and for me to get to know you better too! So, here are a few things that I’m currently loving, and not loving.

{She Loves Me}

1. Rain! Sure, it’s a bit of a bummer that I won’t be laying out getting some sun over my spring break this week, but after such an awful drought and the devastating fires in Texas over the last year, the sound of rain is the most beautiful thing! Picture via Matchbook Magazine.

2. This Eiffel Tower print by ISeeNoise on Etsy–it would look so perfect in my room next to the gold confetti canvas I made a few months ago. How fun would a gold gallery wall be?

3. I’ve had this picture saved in the “interior design” folder on my computer for ages…is there anything better than the combination of mint and gold right now? I have my eye on those gold Moroccan poufs in a big way! Picture via Centsational Girl.

4. I love Kate Spade‘s “florals with a twist” March pattern of the month–the tennis theme is so preppy and fun. I wish I played tennis and could justify buying one of the cute jewelry pieces!

1. Kale chips. Did I make them wrong or something? I keep hearing how much people love them, but when I tried it, they were so bitter, I threw them away. I used olive oil and salt and baked them at about 400 till they were a little bit brown. Help!

2. Mosquitoes. They’re so bad in my neighborhood, and they’re all starting to come back for the spring. Ugh!

3. Monday’s Bachelor finale. I didn’t even watch this season, but both Ben and Courtney were so irritating. Looking forward to Emily’s season though!

What are you loving and not loving right now? Be sure to check out the link-up party on Michaela Noelle Designs today!








  1. Kale chips are the yum only if you cook them until ‘just crisp’ – any less and they are soggy and gross. Any more and they are bitter and gross

    LOVE the Eiffel Tower print. It’s stunning. You clearly have a gold theme ready to brighten your spring.

      Thanks for the tip!! I’ll definitely work on that…good thing kale is cheap enough for some trial and error wiggle room :)

    i like the pretty mint and gold bedroom. too bad we already went for silver accents in our room!

  3. Christine says:

    mosquitos should die. no seriously.. they should all. just. die.

    errr.. that was probably too much.
