I am loving this laid back 70’s beach house! The decor is simple with lots of natural fibers and statement pieces that made me want to shop this beach house!! Wait till you see the sofa…
The sofa! Am I right?!! I’ve never seen a sofa so good before!!
I need some of those wooden waves! I didn’t even know they existed until now.
just some laid back living
I love how the landscape does most of the work for this outdoor space
rustic benches and picnic tables? Yes, please!

Happy Holidays Mermaids!
Take a tour of this artist’s beach house on the island of Maui! It’s a dream of a tropical home, complete with loads of palm trees, swan floats in the pool, and a tiki four poster bed. Take the tour >
Loving all the colors in this bedroom and of course also loving that tiki bed frame!
the artist’s studio
Is it even a pool if you don’t have a couple of swan floats???
I love the idea of having plants in your fountain!
a Buddha to bid you hello and goodbye

What is it about sea salt and chocolate that goes so well together? Today I’m sharing my recipe for these Sea Salt Chocolate Glazed Donuts! They are a delicious treat and can also be made into donut holes (just use a different mold) and can be turned into an easy holiday treat by using crushed candy canes sprinkled over the top or your other favorite holiday sweet! Grab the recipe below:
- 1 1/4 cup flour (can use regular or almond flour to make GF)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt plus more for sprinkling
- 1 egg (add an additional egg if making GF)
- 1/2 tbsp melted butter
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/8 cup avocado oil
- 1/8 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp pure cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- crushed almonds
- sea salt flakes
- Preheat oven to 350′
- Combine all dry ingredients; flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt, mix and set aside.
- Combine remaining wet ingredients using a whisk, slowly add in dry ingredients and keep whisking.
- Grease donut mold with a light coating of avocado oil.
- Spoon donut batter into mold and bake for 10 – 12 minutes.
- Tip mold upside down over cooling rack and gentle tap donuts out of the mold. If any of the donuts are stuck, let them cool in the mold for a few minutes and try again.
- While donuts are cooling, mix the chocolate glaze ingredients and stir on low in a sauce pan.
- Once the glaze has reached a sauce consistency, dip the cooled donuts in and place in the fridge for 5 – 10 minutes to harden the glaze. OR just go ahead and eat them, I won’t judge!
*Note: If you’d like to add toppings, sprinkle them on immediately after dipping donuts into the glaze.
