When it comes to home decor, I naturally gravitate towards the cream and taupe color palettes. Now I am huge fan of color, especially vivid jewel tones…but when it comes to my home I love the simplicity and cozy aspect of neutrals. Plus there is always the option to cycle in different colored accents (vases, picture frames, throw pillows) to update the look from time … Continue reading Home Decor
And here is the second half of my Christmas Present Haul…please make sure to check out my prior blog post for the first part. :) How cute are these blue and gold Kate Spade earrings that Santa left for me under the Christmas Tree?!I have always been partial to simple stud earrings. And I have actually been eyeing all of the different Kate Spade “bow” … Continue reading Christmas Presents Part Deux
I love coming home for the holidays and spending time with my family and all…but I feel like I have been living in a holiday food coma for the past couple of days!!! Typically, I don’t eat large meals throughout the day. I tend to graze on snacks and small meals…but at my parents house it’s a different story! There are too many treats laying … Continue reading Christmas Food Coma
I am nearly done with all of my Christmas shopping and let me just say…it feels so good! Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I was able to knock out most of my gift list. I think with a little preparation before Thanksgiving…creating a list with presents I planned on buying and where I was going to get them, and many hours checking online deals…I … Continue reading Early Bird
Okay…how cute/pathetic is my little Christmas Tree?! Hehe. I was out with a few friends a couple of weekends ago and happened upon this cute little box set at Bartells for about $10! Even after adding all of the super cute ornaments I sort of thought my tree was lacking a little something-something…so it was only naturally that I add my Nordstrom Majorica Pearls to … Continue reading Oh Christmas Tree
I am not picky about many things…but the one thing I tend to not budge on is the type of candles I burn in my home. And while I am no candle connoisseur, I believe that Bath and Body Works makes some of the best and most affordable candles. So needless to say when I stepped into the Yankee Candle Store this past weekend to … Continue reading Yankee Doodle Dandy
Okay, so I wouldn’t typically step food inside of a BeBe store…(no hate to those who like or frequent that store; it’s just not my style)…but I did just that the other day!!! My friend, who I was shopping with, suggested that we go inside to poke fun at all of the glittery clothing. And while we did manage to find some awesomely bedazzled garments, … Continue reading Earrings!
Well I found myself inside of a Pottery Barn last weekend…and lets be honest here, this store is solely designed to be a giant money trap. I want, no need, every SINGLE thing inside of this store! Needless to say I purchased something…three “somethings” to be exact. My friends and I were admiring the cute Easter displays and noticed these mercury glass hanging lanterns. I … Continue reading Pottery Barn, you get me every time!
This past weekend I went to Bainbridge Island with some friends and happened across a little shop than sold every type of candle imaginable! Now I am pretty much a tried and true soy candle kind of gal. I love how “clean” soy candles burn and how the true scent of the candle comes through. There is nothing I hate more than a “waxy” smelling … Continue reading Crackling Fire Candle
Okay, so I know that I am one of the last people on the planet to try the NYC Sunny Bronzer…but cut a girl some slack. Let just say for the past couple of years I have opted to rock that super pale, northwest look. Well at least that is what I have tricked myself into believing… Recently I was at Target and they actually … Continue reading NYC Sunny
