{monday morning with Molly of Almost Makes Perfect}

I only recently discovered Molly's fabulous DIY blog, Almost Makes Perfect, but I have been totally hooked ever since (the kind of hooked where when you first go to the blog you spend an hour going back through the archives of posts because you can't get enough!).  Molly and I also share a love for getting married in Palm Springs as she will be having her wedding there in the coming months and I can't wait to follow along with all her wedding projects!  Check out her interview below and then go fill your pinterest page with all the inspiration from her blog!

what's your drink of choice?
moscow mules forever. i also am always down for a margarita on the rocks. if we're talking non alcoholic, i consume about 2 liters of soda water a day.

what's the most recent store you shopped at?

broome st general in la, i could spend hours in this tiny little shop filled with perfectly curated goodies.

do you have a signature scent?
it's embarrassing but i've worn victoria's secret since high school. it used to be love spell, but i matured into sexy little things noir. i can't even picture switching because i essentially bathe myself in the stuff.

what is the top item on your wishlist right now?
the gus modern gt rocking chair. i almost got one on sale but my fiancée talked me out of it because of how much our cats would destroy the upholstery. they rule the house unfortunately.

what'd you do this past weekend?
on friday we drove to the desert to see hall & oates play at a casino -- so peak. also saw the grand budapest hotel, which was great. spent the rest of the weekend trying to clean the apartment which i almost never take the time to do.

where are you or where would you like to travel to next?
i live in la, and were currently trying to pick a honeymoon location. my #1 was always greece, but fortunately we got to go already. so now we're thinking somewhere where we'll sightsee less and relax more. bora bora or bali?

what are you currently reading?
strictly coffee table and cookbooks. sadly its been way too long since i've read a book cover to cover. sunday suppers at lucques is the one i flip through the most. she talks about the origins of her recipes and shares early career stories. i love that woman. you must make her chocolate bread pudding!

favorite quote of the moment?
"you can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live until a hundred" woody allen, it's kind of my lifetime mantra.

whats your new favorite blog discovery?
i just recently discovered fall for diy and i love her simple projects and aesthetic. ann marie loves paper is another new favorite -- she shares lots of helpful little photoshop and organizational tips.

tell us a secret?
i cannot wear jeans at home. like no matter what -- they are removed the second i walk in the door. it's even so bad i once asked my guy to remove the pants while i inhaled pirates booty. he's never let me live it down.

  1. I can't wear jeans at home either! There is usually a pair of jeans in our foyer because I remove them the moment I walk in the door...even my comfiest, roomiest pair. For some reason, I don't consider jeans to be "house pants." Glad to hear I'm not the only one.
