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!

Hey Guys! As promised, I put together all my Kids’ Summer Activities into one list for you!  If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw that my kiddos were pulling the classic “I’m Bored” only a few days into summer vacation.  Those of us on the east coast have only been out for about a week and a half.  So, I searched the internet, some educational resources I had (did you know I was a teacher forever ago?) and came up with 40 Activities for us to do this summer!

I only spent $100 total for 40 activities for all four of my kids and my kids span from 6-13, so all the activities had to work for a big age range.  There are tons of ways to organize your activities, but I used jumbo popsicle sticks with one activity written on each.  We’re keeping them in a mason jar and the kids LOVE looking through them and getting excited about upcoming activities.  I also put ALL my materials into one cardboard box, so I don’t have to scramble and prepare for each activity.  It’s made this whole plan really simple!

Tons of you messaged me and left comments asking me to share my activity plans, so I’ve put them all together in a PDF with clickable links to each activity and a place for you to plan what materials you might need to pick up.  I’ll be sharing many of the activities here on the blog as we do them, but this list will let you get started right away and not have to wait for each of my posts!
