Kitchen Remodel Details {Before & After}

I am so very, very, VERY excited to be sharing this post with y’all today. It’s truly been a long time coming, a full year in fact. We repainted the entire kitchen/living room area this time last year. We then painted the kitchen cabinets white, upgraded the cabinet pulls and added the marble backsplash last spring. Like any homeowners, I’m sure, Erick and I still had a long list of projects we wanted to tackle eventually before selling this house in couple of years. Things like new floors, re-painting the white doors and trim, replacing light fixtures, painting the bedrooms and so on. WELL, thanks to a house flood this past September  which left us with concrete floors throughout, no baseboards and without a  kitchen island we definitely got to compete all of those projects a lot sooner then we expected. Long story short our kitchen sink pipe busted in the middle of the night and ran for 5 hours before we woke up to it) You can get a first hand look  inside the day it happened over on my Instagram highlight story tab,  ‘Home Improvements’.

Faux Fur Jacket & Dainty Layering Necklaces

It’s crazy to think that two years ago I don’t think I owned one dainty necklace and now that’s pretty much all my collection consists of. Don’t worry, I haven’t let go of all my fashion statement pieces but for now they mostly stay tucked away and are typically only pulled out for parties and events. Faux fur has allllwaaayys been in my DNA, I think I owned my first one by age 5 and I’ve never looked back. I’m obsessed with them all: faux fur, sherpa, fancy or casual.

Holiday Living Room Decor

Tis’ the season y’all!! I was so very excited to get most of my holiday decor up over the weekend. With the house flood in September which left us with a gutted interior I was only able to decorate my front porch for fall so needless to say I was very much itching to pull out all our Christmas decor. Our kitchen is still not complete so I mainly focused on the living room. I still want to add some touches of fresh garland (I used my faux garland or now) along the mantle, doorways, and make wreaths for the windows. I just realized this post also serves as a living room remodel reveal too since I haven’t posted on it yet since we’ve gotten everything updated. The walls are still very bare because I’m waiting to hang anything until we get our new sectional (should be this week) which I am SO EXCITED about! I’ll have to do another post maybe after the holidays when the Christmas decor gets put up and the space is in its normal state. ANYWAYS, let’s get on to the holiday decor shall we!

Chic White Jumpsuit + Hostess Baby Shower Decor Deets

I got to celebrate a fabulous friend and her baby boy on the way over the weekend and it was such a lovely day. A couple months ago she requested my help with the shower decor and I was so honored and excited. I love planning a party and I don’t really have a reason to have one of my own right now I was all about it. I actually helped Rheon with her wedding decor as well, just last may, so it was so very special to be a part of her first baby’s shower celebration just one short year later.

Master Bedroom Escape + New Fav Spa Products

I’m so excited to reveal a little corner of our master bedroom with y’all today. Our master has been a lonnnggg work in progress. For whatever reason it’s just been one of those rooms that I put at the bottom of my priority list which in retrospect makes zero sense. being that it’s the room you start and  your day in, therefore making it one of the most important room’s in your home. I will eventually share the other two walls with y’all once complete but for now this will have to do ;).

As you may have seen on my Instagram, I went to The Elm’s Hotel and Spa over the weekend with my mom and bestie. We spent the day getting pampered with an hour massage, a facial, mani/pedi, and spent time in their signature grotto. The grotto is what The Elm’s is known for and it did not disappoint. Keep your scroll to read more on the three products I could not leave that place without!

Holiday Gift Guide Series Part 2: Gifts for the Hostess

I truly enjoy gift giving and seeing the excitement on others faces when they open up a little gift they weren’t expecting, such as a hostess gift. The idea of arriving to a party with a little something for the hostess with the mostest seems unnecessary to most and while I agree it’s not necessary at all, it’s a simple thought and gesture that’s goes a long. It will truly leave a person remembering your graciousness when you came to their home which I think is great. With that being said I wanted to share my favorite hostess gift ideas with y’all as the holiday party’s an get together’s are well under way. All of these hostess gifts would definitely work for all year around too. Continue reading for all the details

{2017} Home Holiday Decor

I promise i’m not crazy y’all, I just really really love Christmas. Scratch that, I really really love the entire holiday season. From October 1st through January 1st each year I soak up all the holiday cheer I can get. My fall and Halloween decor usually go up before October 1st and my Christmas decor is in the works the first week of November. For everyone out there saying, “what’s the rush!? Can’t you just enjoy each holiday before moving on and celebrating the next.” To you folks I  say, i’m not rushing anything – quite the opposite actually.

For me, this season goes by so very quickly and with each passing year it seems to just go even faster than the year before. The holiday season is truly my favorite time of the year and so with that I want to enjoy it  for as long as I possibly can. From the festive decor to the tree lines and falling leaves on the ground with their beautiful changing colors. Pumpkin spice latte’s, cozy knits, boot and booties, bonfires, and cider everything. To the first snow fall, pretty Christmas lights, cozy throw blankets, holiday movies, and festive gatherings with friends and family. Basically the holiday season, for me, is the season of nostalgia and comfort. Rule of life people: if something makes you happy and doesn’t hurt anyone else in the process (like putting up holiday decorations for instance 😉 )how dare we feel the need to apologize for it.
