Get your Boho on…….


Soooooo……. it’s the first official VERY hot day here in Augusta, Georgia…… I even had to break out the Havaianas (the official start of summer in my book). And from all the media coverage, you guys have most certainly been following the festival-fashion-highs-and-lows Coachella has yet again produced for us this year. As my good friend always says – Adél, you need to aim for Soho meets Boho, not Boho meets Hobo….. just sayin’……oh and its sooo easy to get this one wrong!

 I’m also off on my own version of Coachella – way more low key – and my crowd is prob not as fashionably dressed as the Coachella crowd, but def. waaaaaay cuter – Yes, I’ve signed-up to chaperone the girls on their first Girls Scout camping trip. I might not be tripping out in the Cali-sun with boots/fringes and lots of wannabees, but I’ve decided this is no reason for me to look the Hobo version……  I’ve rounded up a few (way more toned down) options to even break out on your local back yard glamp trip. I mean, who is really considering leaving their bed/pillow/shower/coffee machine behind? I guess there is a first time for everything. Stay tuned for the updated version on this story…….

Herewith, my list of getting your glamp-on, even when you’re hanging with your Girl Scout homies…….

1.  Boho-jewels – nice, big junky numbers – a mood ring is good – still good to build a camp fire, eat that S’more and to check-in on the mood swing level for being Starbucks deprived…..


2. Cover. Your. Head

Lets face it, you WILL be blessed with a bad hair day, that my dear, is a given – might as well make it look chic, while you’re at it – bed head, turban style – no need to hide your mop under a boring baseball cap. Gamp it up, Baby!


3. Streamlined wardrobe

Ok, I DON’t look like missy here – but I do approve of her packing sense. Why pack loads of stuff, when you can get away with two for the packing effort of 1? Nice onesies seems like a good choice to me.


4. Peasant-style tops. I’ve always loved them. Must be my inner 70’s child screaming to come out. Works brilliant over a bathing costume, and allows you that 4 more extra S’mores with the guaranteed no-pinching-clothes. My kind of clothing.


5. Funky Sunnies.

For obvious reasons. You’re going to look like hell. With these sunnies, they’ll never tell the difference between you partying all night with the band or getting 20 hyper Girl Scout girls to sleep. Remember, we ALWAYS look cool. No matter the circumstances.


So, this whole intro to this post, was actually because I wanted to share the new Boho-inspired items I’ve spied at Anthropologie – damn I love this shop. Here’s my picks of their latest & greatest – what you think? You agree?

Love these pillows – can totally see them sitting pretty in a hammock.


Lovely table linen – this will brighten-up any meal in a jiffy.


Super-cute Slim Aarons notebooks – perfect for jotting down notes on that book that’s stuck inside of your head…..


PomPom Baskets! What is there not to like – perfect for hiding clutter,  to use as a kiddies laundry bag, or to throw over your shoulder for a trip to the market.


Quinoa Cookbook – to feed your hipster friends.


Ceramic to store your bling……

everything and the kitchen sink

Now I will not make any excuse for my desire to travel twenty/four/seven, but with a a family & job, and all the other lovelies of life that comes with it, the travelling needs to be armchair bound – for most of the time….. And for those of you that have travelled with kids in tow, you’ll agree, that although a five star abode might be super appealing, the lovely standard room with tiny mini bar, only goes so far!  Yes, it is fine to keep the Champagne chilled, but lets face it, you’ll swop that in a heartbeat for access to a kettle, washing machine and home’s other creature comforts, once you’re dealing with a sick child, whilst on holiday……

Also, who would say no to a little more space – Lets face it – a 3×4 size room, with husband,  2 small kids in tow, luggage, has never made for a fun time….. and then they still need to set-up the roll-out bed! Well, I had my armchair travel itch scratched this morning…..

I stumbled onto the Palihouse West Hollywood, this morning and it is clear someone who know what it feels like to travel with a posse, had a hand in the design….. Apart from the perfect setting (West Hollywood) and the normal 5-star creature comforts, ie. beautiful mid-century interiors, carrera marble bathrooms, luxe linens, wi-fi and 5-star in-room dining, it also offers an in-suite washer/dryer & fridge; high-end kitted kitchen appliances, little stove, microwave, toaster, iron & ironing board and pet amenities…..

So, you can still live the Hollywood dream, but play perfect mini-house at night. Oh, and did I mention it also includes access to a spa and on-call therapists….. not sure if that is therapy for your travelling cat/budgie, but I would not put that pass them. Luckily the concierge is a phone call away……

Sigh, I am willing to give it a try….
