BoConcept San Diego

We are so beyond excited to be working with BoConcept San Diego on our living room. BoConcept makes modern design furniture for the urban-minded customer. Last week I shared my Living Room Redesign : Paint post about our first steps in updating our living room with Behr Paint. We are loving the new color and are so thrilled to jump on board with BoConcept on a full living room makeover. There are a few steps involved in redesigning any room of the house and I wanted to share our process with you.

BoConcept San Diego Beliefs

I first heard of BoConcept at the AIGA San Diego Y-Conference. See the super cool white chair and couch behind Brand-building expert, Denise Lee Yohn? I feel in love with the shape and style of the chair and found out it was a BoConcept chair. After I learned a little more about the company from Precious, the director of operations of the San Diego location, we made an appointment to chat more in store.

BoConcept San Diego

is located in Little Italy on the corner of Cedar and Front Street. The 5,000 square foot store  is inclosed with large windows allowing for a lot of direct light. When I visited for the first time I snapped a bunch of photos so I could get different ideas for our living room.

While I was in the store we discussed the process of redesigning a living room. There is a team of trained design consultants that offer in home design consultations to help find the best solutions for the project.

1. Find Inspiration : I snagged a copy of BoConcept’s catalog and tagged each page that I liked. The 160 page catalog is beautifully designed with all sorts of room decor ideas. Mark and I had already planned out our ideal living room a while back but were never able to implement everything we wanted. We have always wanted a grey couch, small storage space for electronics, a beautiful rug and a few design elements to make the room pop.

2. Book a Consultation : I then booked my in-home design consultation and measure. Precious came to my house and measured our living room so she would have the exact measurements. We talked about all the things we liked in the catalog and what items we thought would work best for our home. Our most important factors are functionality and comfort with a minimalist feel. We also thought we may need some sort of space for a few toys since we do have a toddler in the house. I really like that my kiddo is able to play with her toys anywhere in our home but I also like to be able to tidy up easily at the end of the day.

3. Make it Right : Our next step is to go over our 3D renderings. Our appointment is set for later this week and we can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with!

4. Enjoy it : After we go in for our 3D rendering review, their team will deliver and assemble our room for us to enjoy. BoConcept is really big on making sure the customer is happy, so they don’t stop until everyone in the family is happy with the new space. (I love that!)

The thing I love most so far about BoConcept is that they follow a set of beliefs that works for me. I love that they focus on affordable luxury. I really like nice things but we don’t always have a budget for high quality items. BoConcept really works with their clients and customers to make them happy.

We can’t wait to see the 3D renderings of our living room redesign this week and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Reducing Toxins for My Healthy Home with #WalgreensOlogy

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. #WalgreensOlogy

As you know, we have been super busy around here lately. One of the first things our family often forgets when we are busy is to stay healthy. There is something about being on the go all the time that makes convenience more important than health. Well, it’s time to focus back on health again over here and reduce the toxins in my healthy home. We have started to create a healthier home by grabbing some of Walgreen’s Ology products. These products are free from 10 of the most harmful chemicals typically used in cleaning products.

#WalgreensOlogy #shop

My kiddo and I went to Walgreens and picked up a few new cleaning products for our home. Our family has always tried to be pretty health conscious but these type of products are not always located everywhere. It is nice to know we can pick up another product without harmful chemicals to clean our home at Walgreens.

#WalgreensOlogy #shop

After our shopping trip we headed home to clean our bathrooms. The cool thing about Ology is that its endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World–an organization dedicated to creating healthy environments for children. The cleaners are made with no dyes or ammonia, no harsh solvents or fake fragrances, no animal testing and the bottle is made from 100% post-consumer materials. So when my kiddo grabbed the bottle of cleaner and started washing the mirrors I didn’t have to freak out that she was using a household cleaner.

#WalgreensOlogy #shop

The bathroom cleaner and the all-purpose cleaner work really well. And they smell SO good! I loved that my bathroom smelled of peppermint oil when we were done cleaning. The Ology paper towels were super absorbent and are made from 100% tree-free products. They are made from a renewable sugar husk and quick growing bamboo making it soft, strong and biodegradable.

I also just wanted to add that I really like the packaging. I love the natural cream color used on all the products with the bold pink logo. The typography is really fun and really brings across a natural feel.

Check out the video of other moms learning about Ology products and their fun household cleaner competition.

Have you used Ology products before? What was your favorite?

Rubio’s 3rd Annual Coast Fest 5/10

Rubio’s 3rd Annual Coast Fest is coming May 10th! This free event includes Beach Cleanup, Complimentary Food and Drinks, Music Festival, VIP Beer Garden and Educational Components.

Researchers say the world’s oceans are at a critical point in their existence, from climate changes and ocean acidification, to poor fishing practices and pollution. The actions taken to protect the oceans throughout the next 10 years will determine the state of the oceans for the next 10,000 years.

Rubios Coast Fest 5/10About Coast Fest
With more than 1,600 attendees expected to join the festivities at the Oceanside Pier on May 10, the celebration will kick off at 10 a.m. with community members going the extra nautical mile at a beach cleanup hosted by I Love a Clean San Diego. Last year’s efforts resulted in more than 350 pounds of trash being removed from the coastline. This year, beach cleanup participants should bring a bucket, gloves, sun protection and a reusable water bottle. For more beach cleanup information, please visit:

Following the beach cleanup, the celebration includes:

  • CoastFest activities – this year’s celebration is full of exciting freebies and activities, including: prizes from the Rubio’s prize wheel, surf lessons, a mobile aquarium, face painting, an inflatable jumpy house and a photo booth to capture the day’s memories.
  • Complimentary food and drinks – guests will be able to enjoy a Rubio’s sustainable Grilled or Blackened Regal Springs® Taco, handmade guacamole featuring Hass avocados and chips, freshly prepared salsa, beverages and more.
  • Music festival – guests are invited to visit the main stage throughout the celebration for free live music from a collection of local Southern California bands, as well as FM 94/9. Musical acts include: Jet West, a reggae/rock band from San Diego that fuses traditional rock with elements of reggae and hard rock and Bad Neighborz, a 2012 San Diego Music Award nominee for Best Artist. Families can also enjoy live, interactive performances from Clint Perry & The Boo Hoo Crew in the Kid’s Zone.
  • VIP Beer Garden – a new addition to this year’s CoastFest, Rubio’s has added a VIP beer garden to the celebration – featuring Karl Strauss beer and Lolailo Sangria. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids. Guests can purchase tickets here:
  • Kids’ Zone educational elements – Rubio’s understands that the ocean makes everything it does possible and in turn is passionate about educating future generations. To ensure a love of the ocean is passed down, the Ocean Institute’s “Ocean in Motion” aquarium touch tank, as well as the mobile learning center courtesy of the Wyland Foundation® will be on site for children of all ages.
  • Complimentary surf lessons – onsite surf lessons will be available to attendees from Surfin’ Fire.
