Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you some ideas I have for our guest bath. We are going to completely gut it and re-do everything except the floors. I’ve ordered all the ‘parts’ like tub, faucet, toilet, mirror etc. We are just waiting for them to come in until we start on the demo. Once the tub is in I think we will start. The only thing not finalized is the wallpaper, light fixtures and accessories. We are planning on having the whole room subway tiled. In the shower it will go from the top of the tub up to the ceiling. Then the tile will extend all around the room going half way up the wall. I’ll then have wallpaper on the upper part of the walls. I’m leaning towards some of the designs from Anthropologie but it’s so hard! I want something with a little interest since everything else is basically white. Let me know if you have some wallpaper recommendations the comments. I’m so ready to get it all started. I’m really hoping we can have it done by the time the girls are born!
Hey everyone! I hope you are having a good week so far. Today I wanted to share with you some new fashion pieces that I am loving. It has been in the 80’s this week, so I feel like it’s summer. What is the weather like where you live? We were supposed to get so much rain this season, but now we just get summer early. Typical! I am missing Seattle so much right now!
I also wanted to see if you would like me to post my YouTube videos here on my blog. I would do that so you can come here to see everything I’m posting, rather than go to YouTube for vidoes, blog for pictures etc. Unless you spend time browsing on YouTube anyway. Just let me know what would be easiest for you!
^^These shoes are perfect for spring! It has felt weird pulling out my warm weather shoes, but it’s a nice change up from boots! (only downside is you have to paint your nails!)^^
Merry Christmas Eve everyone! This morning I wanted to share some pictures of our holiday decor! I felt like this was such a long holiday season full of parties, decorating and so much sugar! Andrew and I were at Disneyland the other day and it was swamped with people. I think we hit a wall and realized we need a break from both Disney (I know shocking!), and also people. Christmas functions become a bit overwhelming at times and I think January is such a great time to regain your energy and clarity for the new year. So with that said, time to show you some pictures of our decor. It isn’t a ton, but we have been in apartments up until this year so I never really bought too many things for Christmas. I might go shopping after Christmas to get some more things for next year!
We got a fake tree this year from Lowes. I wasn’t even planning on it, but when we saw how real it looked we thought it was a no-brainer. We ended up getting the 7.5 foot one and it fits perfectly. I also love not having to water it! Our tree skirt is from West Elm, but unfortunately is sold out. But I love the faux fur look. For our whole tree theme it ended up looking very cozy and cabin-like. Reindeer and flannel wrapping paper will do that! (I found all my wrapping paper from Target this year.)
I love building upon our ornament collection each year. Andrew and I give each other one every Christmas and I always look forward to it! A few places I love to get mine from are Pottery Barn (wait till they go on sale), Michaels, West Elm, and Pier 1.

We found new stockings this year from West Elm (again, out of stock…so sorry!). The green one is for our sweet pup and those were the ones we used to use in our old apartments! I found those at Target three years ago.
I am a huge fan of putting greenery everywhere possible! It adds a cozy feel and is super easy. I also love that you can make it your own by sticking some metallic beads or pinecones in it. You can see I don’t like to use very bright decorations. I like them to just blend with our normal decor.
Ah I love this combo lately. Pairing soft neutrals with little pops of color. I clearly am not listening to the no white after Labor Day rule. What about winter whites!? If you guys follow me on Instagram you have seen these sunglasses a ton lately. I think the idea behind this company is pretty neat. You pay $24 a month for designer sunglasses. When you are sick of your pair you just return them for a new style! This whole outfit is made up of super affordable pieces. The scarf is under $20 from Target and is super warm! I also cannot stop wearing these booties. They are super comfortable and I’m really into this camel shade right now. I hope you all have a great rest of your day and Happy Holidays!
So ever since I got this coat, I haven’t taken it off. Okay well occasionally. Andrew asked me last night, why do you always have that coat on? Because it’s cute and warm! If you are looking for a great trench that is warm for the winter, I’d highly recommend this one! I also have it in a dark green shade which is stunning. I kind of want to get it in black and grey now too. Yes the obsession is real! I’m also super into my thigh high boots. I think they add a nice edge to any outfit, and also warm up your legs! I hope you are all having a wonderful month so far. I am currently blasting the heater in an attempt to warm up my frozen fingers. I would never make it on the east coast. Major props to all of you who are actually in cold weather. Have a great day guys!
Next up in my gift guide series is The Hostess! You all know I love home decor. Moving into our first home is what really kickstarted it. I find so much joy browsing around HomeGoods or searching online for the perfect rug. So if you know someone who loves throwing a party or just enjoys her home, I’ve got some amazing finds for you! Can you believe it’s December?? I’m in full on holiday mode! Happy shopping!
Happy Black Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I woke up so tired from all the food haha. Andrew and I are going to take on the crowds this afternoon to knock some Christmas shopping off the list. I also need to pick up some Christmas decorations. I’ve listed some sales I think are amazing today, and they are all online so you don’t even need to leave the house!
Sephora is having $10 deals on some AMAZING products!
So I’m fully aware that it’s still November, but I’m so ready for Christmas. I walked through Target yesterday and couldn’t stop staring at all their holiday decor. If you like metallics and white, you need to go take a look at their new things. I was just scrolling through Joss & Main, which has become a morning ritual now, and got sucked into the Christmas stuff. I even took out some holiday decor pieces I had in storage last night and tried to put them up super nonchalant so Andrew wouldn’t be able to tell. Here is my compromise, I’m decorating ‘wintery’ right now. No santa’s or red and green is up in our home, just whites and metallics. So if you want to start decorating but be secretive about it, I came up with some ‘winter’ picks that will get you in the mood, but won’t make you look like a Christmas freak. (Confession: Michael Buble Holiday is currently playing on my Pandora.)
Happy Tuesday! Today I have an outfit to share that is perfect for summer. I’m slightly obsessed with rompers. Does anyone else feel like a child when they wear them? Haha..they are so comfy it’s awesome. This romper is from Fashion Nova, and I love the details on it. The brown leather straps and white embroidery make it really unique. I love adding wedges to either a romper or sundress because they are still extremely comfortable but make the outfit more dressed up. But when I am doing something more low key I’ll just wear flip flops or some sandals. And like always I’m wearing a gold watch and lots of beaded bracelets. I get a lot of questions where I get them from and they are all from different brands so it’s hard to say sometimes. But in general, if I see beaded bracelets, I’m down!
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!
