clockwise from left: a beach cottage / public / lovely indeed
with the temperatures rising and the buds slowly showing themselves, it finally feels like spring! and we're pretty much half-way through april! (the clock needs to stoppppp!) with this newfound ability to be outside without getting smacked in the face by a 30* wind, i have been itching to go on a bike ride - anywhere! the only problem is, i don't have a bike. the one from public (above) is currently on sale FOR $200 OFF! so it's a big contender. jump on that folks! and happy spring bike-riding! -m

i've yet again changed up the "inspiration tuesday" look to something cleaner, with crisper lines and more of a focus on the images. i'm liking it so far! anyway, with spring in full bloom (sorry, had to!) i felt like a post with flowers was necessary.  i love the look of big, full blooms in a vase, styled for a shoot, but i've never thought of carrying one ingle bloom as a wedding bouquet! it's different - but definitely in a good way. for more floral inspiration, head over to my pinterest! happy tuesday! -m

Hi there, readers of THE LOLLY PROJECT. I am so pleased Molly asked me to share a little of what has been inspiring me lately so I can pass some of my inspiration onto you. This Tuesday, let's talk about triangles! I love the simple, geometric shape and it fulfills so many purposes. This DIY triangle shelving unit from Whimsy Darling is perfect for a weekend project. Or why not treat yourself to a minimalist manicure? You know what I'm really thinking about, though? The food beyond that yellow door! This restaurant is Rayén Vegano, one of the Vegan restaurants I visited while in Madrid and home to some really delicious food.
What has been inspiring you lately?

i've really been crushing on wall art lately - whether it be a really sophisticated gallery wall or a super minimalistic oversized print. minted has a ton of awesome ones to choose from! and they come in so many sizes! i'm kind-of heart eye emoji over it all. (i'm also super heart eyes over their wedding stationery! wow!) hopefully i'll be able to fulfill my art dreams soon! -m
