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!

Last week, I told you guys how excited I was about the World Market PA Grand Opening!  Well, let me tell you now… It didn’t disappoint!  I had such a great time attending and got to hang out with a bunch of my favorite local bloggers.  I thought it would be fun to give you a peek inside my evening AND my shopping bag- I got some great stuff!

World Market had a fun Photo Booth set up for the grand opening guests, so of course we had to jump in and have a little fun before shopping.  If you don’t know all of these ladies, you’ll want to check them out for sure!

After our Photo Booth shenanigans, I beelined it over to the clothing and accessories section.  I had vacation on the brain and knew they’d have some awesome accessories for our trip to Costa Rica!

The little zipper pouch was actually from the office accessories area, but I thought it would be perfect for sunblock, chapstick, and my phone! The snarky sentiment was meant for me!

There were a bunch of adorable totes that were perfect as a beach bag, but this one was my favorite because of the leather straps!

It was perfect as my carry on bag on our flights and I used it every day on the beach!


This pieced headband also caught my eye… I have naturally curly hair, but unfortunately it doesn’t turn into beachy waves… it’s more like frizz central, so headbands and top knots are essential!

This floppy hat was perfect to keep the sun off my face. It only took me 32 years, but I finally figured out that the sun will give me wrinkles… Too bad I spent decades “sun bathing” with oil. The damage is done, but at least I’ll feel more mature and wise while wearing this cute hat!

The sun was so hot in Pavones, so I pretty much wore this baby every day!


After getting all my vacation essentials, I headed over to the bath area and picked out these vintage looking soap and lotion bottles for my bathroom makeover!  I’m SO excited to share this makeover with you later this year- I know all the sneak peeks might be annoying, but I promise this series will be worth the wait!

I pretty much was able to style an entire wall, with World Market- 95% of these rustic-meets-industrial shelves’ accessories I picked up at the grand opening!

I also picked up a few cute baskets that I’m planning to use in some upcoming makeovers, but I can’t show you those yet! I got the same basket as Christina, and love how she styled it in her home office.World Market Baskets

I’d say it was a pretty successful (and fun) shopping trip… the first of many to the new World Market location!  I’m actually headed there this weekend to grab some accessories for a gallery wall project I’m working on!

If you’re local to PA- Make sure you check out the new Montgomeryville Location or if you don’t have a World Market near you, you can always shop online!

    OH! I didn’t realize it was in Lansdale. Road Trip! I’m in South Jersey. 15 mins from Center City. On my way!
