I’ve started to love this mauve color! In clothing and in decor. I have to show you my silk curtains in my office soon. There are from West Elm. I usually stray away from anything pink because I’ve never thought I look good in it. If you were to look in my closet I’m pretty sure you might find one pink top in total. But this hue is so much better! I am huge fan of these dusty shades lately. I think they work well with lots of pieces. You can pair with black, white, olive green, and grey. This top isn’t on Windor’s site anymore, just the bodysuit version. But I’ve found similar styles here, here, and here.
I’m still loving my lob haircut. I have a tutorial on it HERE. I like that once I style it, it will last a good 2-3 days. The only bummer is that I notice it growing more, which means more haircuts. Boo.

All we have in our bedroom currently is a linen tufted bed, teal tufted settee (we had it custom upholstered, but the one above is similar) and mismatched bedside tables. I wanted to put together some decor ideas that I’ve been really into lately. If you guys have seen any of our home vlogs, you have seen our bedroom/closet layout. I want to put a rug like the one above in the closet space to make it look more like a closet and make it look like it’s own room. I also want to put that oval ottoman in the middle of it so we can use it as seating and fill out the room more. For the wall opposite our bed, we have our settee there now. I want to put a gold floor length mirror next to it that leans against the wall along with a little side table. The black chests in the photo are what I’m thinking of for our bedside tables. Our room is pretty big and our current tables look really tiny. I also like the idea of having all that extra storage space. As far as style goes, I want our room to be soft and romantic, but with some moroccan and rustic elements to keep it from looking too stuffy. Let me know what you guys think! I’ll have an update video on my channel soon of our bedroom.
Hey guys! Long time no talk! We are slowly but surely getting settled into our new home. It’s nice to actually make a mood board that will work with our space. It’s fun to look on pinterest and see things you like, but you can’t really start planning a room until you are in it! The living room is my current project. It is what you see when you walk in and where we spend most of our time. I am going for a comfortable space with touches of rustic glamour throughout. I love a mediterranean feel as well. So a lot of neutral and wood pieces with greenery and a few pops of jewel toned accents. The pieces I have pulled for are actual things on my list to buy. I have done a lot of searching and these have made the cut. I’ve been loving Joss & Main for really unique finds. I also have been seeing great things on Overstock and Target. Let me know your go-to decor stores in the comments!
So I have had a little obsession with Fixer Upper on HGTV lately and have fallen in love with JoJo’s design taste. Everything is very French Country. There are lots of feminine pieces mixed with rustic wood finishes giving a very polished, yet relaxed vibe. Believe it or not, all of these items below are from Target. I have been so impressed with their decor lately and basically want it all for our new house. I put together some of my top pics that fall into the French Country theme. Let me know what your design style is below!
Today’s inspiration board is about working hard to achieve success, whatever you see success as. No matter what you are working toward in life, I think it’s important to have your mind in the right place. For me, working in the social media field, I get overwhelmed really easily. When I see other that are largely ahead of me makes me question what I am doing and discouraged at times. This year I am focusing on silencing the noise of others and working hard no matter what others are doing. Another aspect of success is believing in yourself. If you can get the confidence in yourself, you can do and achieve great things. This morning I sat down at my desk and attempted to tackle my emails. I looked at every unanswered message and told myself I’d get back to it later. I always need the reminder that now is always the best time, not in 30 minutes or tomorrow. Now. Man, I am the best procrastinator. I want to challenge both myself, and all of you, to finish things. I made the simple task of replying to emails look super daunting because of my mind set. Take each item on your list and follow through. There is nothing more satisfying than crossing everything on your list off at the end of the day. Am I right? So I hope we can all work together to get focused and work towards our goals. Take everything one day at time and always remember how far you have come!
Hi friends! So Andrew and I just went furniture shopping in Solana Beach. We went into a bunch of stores looking for beds and other furniture items. We are moving into a new place this summer and need to get some new things, so we figured we’d start looking asap. So here’s the deal. A lot of the stores we were in had some great things, but everything was pretty high in price. The headboard we liked was about $800 and it wasn’t even exactly what we wanted. So I remembered about Joss & Main which is a flash sale site for furniture and home decor and pulled it up on my phone. I found a section called custom upholstery and you can basically create your ideal bed for under $500. I put together a little collage of some pieces I am drooling over right now. Let me know if you guys have heard of this website and if you have ordered anything from there. I am planning on getting this bed within the next month and cannot wait!
I know it’s still February, well almost March, but I’m actually ready for summer. I am fully aware I am always saying how much I love winter. But the other day I looked in the mirror and the person looking back at me looked like a vampire. Kidding, but I am that pale. I am all for that porcelain skin, but I mean, I need some color stat. A few days after I realized how translucent I was, our weather suddenly heated up and truly felt like summer. I laid out in the sun for a few days to soak up all the vitamin D I could and it felt amazing. I even got a little bit of color! It didn’t last long though, it started pouring last night. Anyways, that little tease made me super excited for the summer and I even pulled out some summer clothes last night. I organized all my bathing suits too which made me more motivated to get in shape. Little tip for you guys. Put on a bathing suit tonight. It will give you that kick in the butt to get in the gym. So here are some pieces that I’m currently inspired by (some I own). I’m even going to play some country music right now. Drivin around song anyone? (On a side note: go watch #candidlynicole on youtube. The funniest thing ever, even Andrew loves it. There are clips on AOL Originals & the Candidly Nicole channel. Loove.)
For today’s decor inspiration, we are talking all about dining spaces. There is something so important about your dining space. I love dining areas that feel very lived in, but I also like a touch of formality as well. One of my favorite combinations is an old rustic table, with a beautiful chandelier hanging above. The juxtaposition of the two pieces creates so much balance and depth to any room. I love to spend my mornings sitting down at the table with a cup of tea to plan out my day. It’s my time to gather my thoughts and get organized. I think that your dining space should be able to work for guests, but also as a space where you can sit down and find inspiration.
I mean…I’m in love. Who knew how much you could feel like Snow White when you put on a tulle skirt and some red lipstick? I wanted to put together a look that would be a wow statement for Valentine’s Day. I kept the colors simplistic so the skirt could be the wow factor. This may be one of my favorite looks to post for you guys. It was such a feminine and girly outfit to wear. And definitely out of my comfort zone, but completely worth it! These past few days have been jammed packed shooting Valentine’s Day projects. I hope you all enjoy a fun new video I have coming soon! Make sure to check out my YouTube channel tonight so you don’t miss it! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Thursday!
Marsala is the color of the year for 2015. I have always been a huge fan of shades like this. A warm neutral with a twist is how I see this pinky/red tone. My favorite way to incorporate this color is through makeup. I think this shade compliments so many skin tones. It looks beautiful on the lids, cheeks and lips. I would definitely suggest playing with colors like this on your face one day and see if you like it. Accessories in this shade are also an easy way to switch up your look. It has a little more interest than a tan or brown bag, but still works with so many other colors. Let me know what you would be most likely to pick up in the new marsala shade below!
