{friday 5}


Happy Friday!  It’s been a really good week.  A nice calm week.  Just what we needed.  Spent as much time as possible outdoors which makes all the difference in shaking my creative juices up.  So many projects I can’t wait to start.  So many fun ideas for the blog.

Take the weekend to recharge, relax and treat yo self Mama’s!  And I wish you all the happiest Mother’s day!



ONE – Hot Sauce Debate // No doubt, I’m a tap-your-uncle girl.  Tapatio, that is.  It’s my hot sauce of choice…always.  On my eggs.  On my tacos.  On anything, really.  But, recently, I’ve been told that I need to spread my wings a little.  That there are wayy better hot sauces out there?  Say whhhattt?  You know I’m always down to try out new stuff, so next week, we’re going to do a hot sauce taste testing.  Not really sure of the logistics just yet.  So, tell me….what’s your fave hot sauce?  What should I add?

Here’s what I’ve picked up for the Hot Sauce Debate so far…..

Valentina // Srirahca // Cholula // Tapatio



TWO – Madwell Top // I love a good striped tee!  Stripes pretty much go with anything + everything.  You’d die if you saw stripe tee collection in my closet.  I found another good one to add to my selection.  Originally I had a whole post planned for this newby, but when I saw that it was marked down to $29, I decided to scratch that and share it NOW!  This will sell out, and you probably need another one.  You’re welcome!

THREE – Easy Pickled Red Onions // I got lots of DM’s after posting this on insta-stories yesterday.  So, here ya go!  This is a quick-pickled onion recipe.  Cory claims it’s not authentic enough.  lol.  I had all the ingredients on hand.  And they are killer.  I’ve been topping turkey burgers, sandwiches + salads with these bad boys all week.

My homegirl Nikki, she made pickled cabbage for her ahi tuna tacos last night….fucking outstanding.  That will be on my to-make list for next week!


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


Cram all the sliced red onion in a mason jar.  Stick your filled mason jar in the sink, because you will spill and this shit is stinky!

Add all the rest of the ingredients to a sauce pan and bring to a simmer.  Remove from heat.

Pour mixture over the red onions.  Allow to cool.  Then pop them in the fridge.



FOUR – Coffee Table // Kinda like my dinning table settings, I love styling the coffee table.  I love that it’s a small space.  Also a space that gets a lot of attention.  Stealing items from other rooms to change it up is my jam.  I can’t get enough of baby daisies.  I grab a bunch ($3.99) every time I make a TJ’s trip lately.  I believe they’re called chamomiles.  But, I think baby daisies sounds cuter 🙂  So, here’s what my coffee table currently looks like and I’ve linked all the sources below if you need one of these items for your coffee table look!


Marble Coffee Table // White Pitcher // Candle Wick Trimmer // Marble Dip Bowl // Moss + Thyme Soy Candle // Matches // Wooden Tray
