Lonny Online: Take 5

Lonny recently published it’s 5th online issue – and the June/July release is a great cover to cover read. Because of it’s soft-copy presence, the editors can bring 239 colorful pages to life and enough ahhing & oogling to fill at least one afternoon.

I’ve actually had to break my Lonny time into two or three coffee cup increments over the past week because there’s, well, too much! But here are a few of my favorite spreads:

I miss print. I miss my Domino and while I look forward to House Beautiful and Elle Decor each month it would be wonderful for Lonny to one day create an issue that I can dog ear, too. Until then, check out the entire online issue here.

PS Wouldn’t it be great if we could subscribe internationally {at a reasonable price} to a few of our favorites? I’m a huge fan of faraway publications such as RealLiving in Australia and NZ House & Garden from New Zealand.

A Special Honoring for All of the Dads

Happy Father’s Day!

Here’s a quick look back at the three special dads in my life… To my Dad, step Dad and Father-In-Law: Love you guys very much and thank you for the special Fathers that you are!

Clockwise from top: my Dad (Jerry) and step Dad (John) walking me down the aisle (Kevin & my anniversary is next week so I look forward to sharing a few more wedding photos), my Dad and I touring Balboa park last year, my brothers, sisters and Kevin with my Dad in San Diego, my FIL (Randy) on a bike trip down the coast of Oregon with his sons (and me in the sag wagon!), and finally my step Dad with my brother and I when we were little.

Today’s Friday Guest Blog Interview is all about wardrobe & style, with a blog centered on delicious fashion and a look book so fun to keep up with that I regularly pull tips and tricks from this seriously creative and trendy girl.

I asked Mara to share with us a few of her favorite finds, ideas and tips through PDB’s guest interview series, and she delivered on both the wardrobe and interior design ends. Mara picked out five unique outfits to showcase today as well a few interior vignettes that highlight her love of all things design.
