hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

We had an awesome Memorial Day Weekend! I think we’re both still catching up a bit… yard sales, barn sales, cook-outs, pool parties, parades, and more! It was awesome!  We didn’t get much DIYing done over the weekend, so we thought we’d give you a little peek into the fun we had!
The Annual Doylestown Memorial Day Parade didn’t disappoint!  The weather was amazing and we loved honoring all those that served and were walking in the parade.

We thought we’d take a minute and introduce you to some of our Gal-Pals.  We really, really value friendship and each of these women are so special to us!
So, whenever we mention a Girls’ Night Out or anything like that, you can now picture some of our cutie friends!
I offered to take a picture of Jess’ cute, little family, and thought a collage was needed to get the full picture…
Photography Tip: Don’t try and have a flag in a picture, it will inevitably cover up someone’s face in every single shot!
In the end… just stick with a picture of the mommy and daddy until all the kids are over 3 yrs old! Ha!
My family struggled with pictures for YEARS… one Christmas, this was the inside of our Xmas card…  Keepin’ it Real People!
But look at us now! 6 People all ALMOST looking and smiling.
Go Team Mangin!
 There were lots of cool, vintage cars in the parade… this one was my favorite! So cool!
 My youngest, Callen was killin’ me with his cuteness as he stood and clapped for each service member.  (and yes, he asked for a patriotic SNAIL on his face???)


Earlier in the weekend, while Jess was rakin’ in the dough at her yard sale, I was spending my dough at the barn sale.  Look at these fabulous books I got for $4.00!  

I needed some as accessories, so I picked them for their color and style… however, The New Book of Etiquette might make for some interesting reading! 


And lastly… look what was delivered to my house this weekend?
I can’t wait to share the beginning of this project with you on Thursday! Stay Tuned!
 We have lots of fun projects coming up in the next few days and weeks! It’s like a great, big DIY party around here!
So, did you have a fabulous weekend? What’d you do?
