Weekend Reading 5.8.22

By Kate Riley May 8, 2022

Weekend hellos and Happy Mother’s Day to all that are celebrating! I’ll be having brunch with my family and enjoying some time relaxing by myself for a few hours. I’m also working on a creative art project and if all goes well I’ll share that soon!

I’m packing my bags to leave next week on another international trip! I’ll be visiting the east coast of Spain: Barcelona, Ibiza, Valencia, and Seville. It’s been years since I’ve traveled to Europe in May, it’s one of my favorite months to travel since the weather is so nice and the countries are less crowded. I’m looking forward to tasting the food, the tapas, the paella, the sangria…. and seeing the Mediterranean views too.

Favorite links from the week:

This renovated Manhattan Beach home with a modern coastal vibe.

This lovely boutique place to stay near the beach in Byron Bay.

What a great color choice for a kitchen cabinet makeover.

This family friendly Caravan camper makeover is fresh and fun.

Clever and stylish IKEA media cabinet hacks.

Three methods for removing wax from candle jars.

Grazing tables to inspire your next soiree.

The solo traveling 66 year old who’s visited 70 countries.

Ten countries that offer a unique coffee experience.


  1. I’m excited about your trip to Spain! I love looking at your pictures and reading about the places you see. We will be in Barcelona in September so I’m looking for tips for our time there. Enjoy!
