An Opportunity Of A Lifetime With BHG + Rebuilding Together

Hi there friends! As promised I wanted to share the exciting news I have been holding onto. It all began a few years ago when my blog became a profession. I was doing what I loved and I was actually getting paid to do it. I felt beyond grateful. I was earning a living and make my house a home in the process. I began to think, wouldn’t it be nice if I could do this for someone else. Someone who maybe had always dreamed of this but didn’t have the resources or means to do it.

Woven Lights + A DIY Of My Own Using A Target Find

Happy Friday friends! Do you ever fall head over heals for something and search for ways to bring it into your home (or life) just because you are so enamored by it? I know instantly when I love something but it can take some time before I actually take the plunge. My mind can be everywhere with decorating, I see so many things I adore on a daily basis, that I have to constantly reign myself in. And decide if it’s something I am loving for the moment, just because it’s on trend or if it truly speaks to my style. Otherwise, I know it will eventually go in the donate pile. Target is the one place I have to have total self control, anyone else with me? I walk in with my list and find myself stalking the home décor isles over and over again. The good thing is, if I find something I usually leave, unless it’s small and will go back if I can’t stop thinking about it. I recently did this with a basket, I kept walking past it, thinking I loved the composition but where would I use it. Of course I left (many times) and just yesterday went back after 2 weeks and bought it. I will come right back to this.

5 Things I Realized Over The Holiday Break

The holiday break went by way too fast, didn’t it?! There was so much build up & prepping and then poof, it was over. With the work load of the blog, projects, house tours and activities for the boys before hand, I was REALLY READY for some down time. I was in super speedy mode for weeks before hand, I am sure you were as well. Phew, I panic just thinking about all of it. Being away I realized some things….

The Room Switch Up + Design Plan (Advice Needed)

I have been back and forth on something & thought I would share with you my dilemma in the hopes it brings clarity. There has been a lot of debate as to whether or not to switch up my dining room for a den/study area. I really do LOVE my dining room but it is rarely used. Most of our dinners are spent at our kitchen bar and if we have small gatherings it is spent in the kitchen huddled around the bar. On birthdays and holidays, when we host we do use it but I know I can create other seating areas to compensate.

DIY Table Runner Made With West Elm Carpet Squares

A few weeks ago I shared my Fall Dining Room, which was by far one of the most fun seasonal rooms I have decorated. I had many favorites which made the space feel cozy & layered, perfect for fall. I created a macramé wall hanging, an original watercolor print with vibrant fall hues and made a unique table runner from West Elm carpet square samples I bought for just a few dollars each.

BHG Stylemaker Event At The Gramercy Park Hotel

I have been blogging for about 5 years now and I still want to pinch myself each and every time I get an opportunity to be a part of something that I could have only imagined in my wildest dreams. To say I am grateful is an understatement. Who would have thought when I began this crazy journey, which I had NO clue what I was doing, that I would one day be writing this article about the Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker event I attended.

Kilim Pillows-Fall Trend Alert

Kilim Pillows-Fall Trend Alert

It is hard to believe summer vacation is coming to a close. My boys head back next week, so I am trying to enjoy every bit of time we have left. It is bittersweet as I look forward to fall and having a schedule & routine but honestly love having them home with me.
Speaking of fall, I am currently obsessed with kilim pillows. The thing I like about this trend is that there is a low commitment, by simply adding a few accessories you can get the look for fall.
