BHNV Feature: Spaces I Love

7/16/2015
From a decor standpoint, I've always been fascinated with southwestern style with a mod twist. Which might be evident enough from the blog name I've chosen, but I digress. These images have me daydreaming of one day owning an imaginative space with rustic pieces and Navajo patterns juxtaposed with white walls.









I cannot wait to own and decorate with one of these beautiful pieces by SkullBliss. Right up my mod/southwest alley, I came across the incredible handcrafted artwork by indigenous artists from Bali. The art of carving or sculpting bones is an authentic Balinese tradition, and the heart and soul that goes into the craftsmanship of these pieces is extraordinary.

I love how detailed and intricate the carvings of the skulls are, giving them such a unique bohemian and rustic touch. Check out SkullBliss for beautiful carved skulls, and add one of these beautiful southwest pieces of art to your home! Which is your favourite?

Matchy Separates (+ $500 Giveaway!)

7/14/2015
Hi, my name is Meghan and I like matchy-matchy. (SOMETIMES). This does NOT include you couples who matchy-matchy in public, just to let it be known! Otherwise, I'm all aboard the matching separates train.

I'm so, so happy I moved to Ottawa for the summer. For one, getting away from the Pan Am Games traffic in Toronto has been a serious blessing, and for two, it is so incredibly beautiful in this city in the summer time. These were snapped by Dow's Lake Pavilion in my new favourite matching set by Blue Life and these seriously cool 70's-style platform sandals I'm obsessed with of late.









Also I'm happy to have teamed up with my favourite blogger girls to bring you another cash giveaway! The winner will receive either Paypal cash or a gift card to the retailer of your choice. Nordstrom shopping spree anyone?? Enter below's widget to win, good luck! xo

Urban Mermaids

7/12/2015
The summer heat is finally setting in as mid-July approaches... and I LOVE it. After such a brutally long and freezing winter, I could live in an eternal heat wave and be ecstatic about it. As many of you know, I am also an avid swimwear-collector/shopaholic, so when Sea Reinas swimwear got in touch with me about blogging about their collection, I jumped on board! The Barbados-based company knows how to do swimwear right. I love designer Isabelle's creative eye for incorporating unique travel landscapes using minimalist designs.

If you're a landlocked, "urban mermaid" like myself, be sure to check out Sea Reinas! I mixed and matched their Sucre Bikini Top in orange with the Jellyfish Bottom and their Jetset Lace Triangle Top with Encage en Piel bottoms.










What's your favourite ways to beat the July heat, mermaids? If you don't follow me on Instagram yet, be sure to follow and stay tuned for a Sea Reinas bikini giveaway soon! xo
