One of the best parts about the weather turning chilly is the beautiful outerwear that is available! I am a total sucker for coats, jackets, vests, you name it! If it is outerwear, I love it! That’s why when I checked out the Andrew Marc website, I couldn’t help but be completely inspired by all of the gorgeous pieces they have.
First of all, I just want to say a big fat thank you for how much love my first little peek into my office reveal earlier this week. I am so glad that you all love it as much as I do! If you missed the first post that is all dedicated to my walls, check it out HERE.
Now to show you all of the little details about this space that make it great!
When you first walk in, your eyes are instantly drawn to this side table with the most delicious lamp you have ever seen in your entire life. This puppy came from none other than Lamps Plus. I have never seen more fabulous lighting options on one site than on Lamps Plus. It was really hard for me to choose between this smaller lamp and a big, fat lamp that looks like this one’s daddy, but I am glad I went with the smaller option because it doesn’t completely steal the show. It is the perfect accent. Speaking of accent, this little white ceramic box has a fun sentimental story with it and I just HAD to include it in this space. When we were first married, Dave took a college class where he got to paint this. He could have painted it any way he wanted to, but chose to paint it in a funky black and white design because he knew I was into that at the time. Well guess what? He knows me well because nearly 7 years later, I am still into that! I love that it can be included in this space because it is a little touch of his style in here too. Even though the rest of it screams GIRL! That vase has also been in the family for a while. I found that gem long ago, but nearly every home decor store carries very similar pieces now.

Laundry and I have a pretty interesting relationship. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. I mostly am indifferent about it because the loves and the hates kind of even each other out. That wasn’t always the case though. It was mostly a relationship full of hatred. I hated laundry. I mostly hated doing my load of whites. They scared me! We have a lot of white laundry and I never used to use bleach because it really scared me. I was nervous that the bleach would splash up and ruin the clothes I was wearing or that it would be harmful on my white clothes. Well, now my whites are looking as good as new thanks to Clorox MyUltimateCare Bleach.
It is available at Target and it has totally changed the way I do white laundry! It is gentle and thicker than traditional bleach so that it won’t splash up at all. The answer to my problems! [Read more...]
I am so excited to finally show you a little something I have been working on.. My office makeover! Slowly, this little townhouse we are renting is starting to feel like my very own space. I knew that I could handle renting for a while because I have killer tools to help me make any room look personalized, aka vinyl and my Silhouette! I have been dreaming about how to decorate an office one day and I finally got to do it!
I have found my most favorite invention ever… BEDDY’S! Have you ever heard of Beddy’s? It is bedding that has zippers on both sides so that the bed is super easy to make. It makes making the bed easier than ever. Which is perfect for my toddler who is just learning to make her own bed. [Read more...]
When I don’t have a plan for dinner, I find myself spending money on going out to eat because I can’t figure out any other option. I used to have a major problem with this. My grocery bill was just as high, because I was buying groceries but I just didn’t make a plan at all and I found myself struggling to figure out something to make for dinner when it was too late in the day. My answer? Meal plan! I didn’t know how to meal plan. It sounds complicated, but it has been SO easy with my system I came up with. The best part? It is all on Pinterest aka the place we go to for our meal ideas anyway!
First thing is first, you get pinning! You probably have already been doing this part! Pin all of the recipes that you like to any of your Pinterest boards. I have a few different boards that I regularly pin to with different recipes that I think look delicious. [Read more...]
It has been about a month since I partnered with Jawbone and started using my UP24 band by Jawbone and I feel like I can officially say that I have said “peace out” to my unhealthy habits that I once had.
When I first started using my UP24 band, I thought that it was only going to motivate me to walk more and stay active. I had no idea what impact it would actually have. [Read more...]
I have said it a million times. I will probably say it a million more. I am a cheapo. I can’t get myself to spend a lot of money on certain things. Clothes falls into that category for me. The problem is that I kind of have expensive taste. I like nice clothes because I know they will last longer and I love the details that come with nicer clothes that you just don’t get when you shop at more affordable stores. My designer loving dreams came true when I learned about the online designer consignment store, Twice.
I love that hats are so on trend right now. There is nothing that can pump up the volume to an outfit quite like an amazing hat can. That’s exactly what happened to this outfit when I put on this killer cobalt blue felt beauty. All of a sudden, a black and white look became playful and unique. Just the way it is supposed to be.

I love having a little girl. It is so fun to get her dolled up. She loves it! She loves doing her hair, playing with my hair, and getting all dressed up. She is all girl! I thought it would be fun to have a matching hairstyle, but not so much so that it looked like we had the exact same hairstyle. I chose to create a twisted hairstyle that was a little juvenile and one that was more of a grown up version of it. [Read more...]
