22 Mar Where to Eat Lunch if you have 1 Day in Costa Mesa

Our flight to and from Cancun last week was out of Vegas (I'll share why we decided to fly out of Vegas later). But the day before our flight, Tanner heard word that his presence was requested for an interview in the LA area. Scrambling to leave a whole day earlier, we weren’t able to head out until close to 7 PM on Thursday evening. Not the most ideal of circumstances, but we’re young & wild so we made it work, lol. The drive consisted of a lot of trying to stay awake and a lot of caffeine on an empty stomach....

14 Mar 5 Tips for Consolidating Your Packing List

Just got back from Cancun last night and I thought I would share some advice on packing for trips that I've learned the hard way after years of packing heavy. Back in October when I took my trip through Italy, I backpacked! Which means I carried all of my possessions on my back, and had to consolidate my packing list way, WAY down. (I’m talking 3 pairs of underwear for my 15-day vacation that I washed every other night in the sink.) There just isn’t the space to carry anything unnecessary when you backpack. Ever since that trip, I’ve been changing the way...

23 Feb Mudcloth Pillows for Sale

I made these Mudcloth pillows for a festival almost 2 years ago and I love them so much! They are made from authentic mudcloth and are a really beautiful accent for any room. I personally have one on my armchairs and couch to bring some personality to those areas, without getting too out of hand since they're a simple black and cream.   I found the ones I never sold the other day and have no need to hang onto them! So, if you're interested in buying any, shoot me an email seekingalexi (at) gmail.com. There are other sites with wider selections of mudcloth pillows, but...

20 Feb When I Love My Vinyl Record Player

I've been falling more and more in love with my record player lately that I got from Urban Outfitters several months ago. I've decided that I like listening to classical music on it the most, especially on lazy Sundays like today. After spending the last 24 hours with a stomach bug, laying at home today relaxing and napping was exactly what I needed. And yesterday, I snagged 5 new vinyl records for only $8 at a local vintage store! I think I found my new favorite Sunday tradition.     I can't find the one I purchased on Urban Outfitters anymore, but...

15 Feb Before-Before & After Photos of Family Room

(Above is the before.)   Thank you for all the support about my recent reveal of my epic family room makeover! I got some help from Home Depot, which I am so grateful for. But you have to see the full reveal. This post only has two pics.   BUT, this is crazy. I just found THIS POST that shows what my family room looked like when I first purchased it. I cannot believe how much change my house has gone through since then!!! I did some dramatic work to the house just after purchasing it, like replacing the floors, moving/creating walls, painting the...
