Powder Room Wallpaper & One Item Project Challenge

Powder Room Makeover Using Wallpaper

Welcome back to the final installment of this year’s One Item Project Challenge. In case you missed it last week, five of my blogger friends and I each created something with fabric, and the week before that was twigs. This time, the item we all had to create something with was WALLPAPER. A few weeks […]

Summer Entertaining- Outdoor Oasis Party + Giveaway!

Outdoor Oasis Party

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1 Imports. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating. As soon as the weather turns warm, we spend as much time outside as possible. I like to think of our backyard as […]

I Heart Kate Spade + Things We Love Giveaway

Kate Spade "Things We Love"

While in California last week (and whenever else I can), I visited one of my favorite designer shops, Kate Spade New York.┬áKate’s style can be described as bold, colorful, and geometric, being predominantly known for her her signature green and love of polka dots. Kate’s career may have kicked off with handbags, but she’s branched […]

Hello everyone! Yesterday I returned from an extended weekend getaway to California’s Pacific Coast.

Getting to Know Charlie Ford Vintage

Charlie Ford Vintage

Most of you know I love to check out vintage stores and thrift shops whenever I can, so when one of my friends told me about Jillian Harris’ latest venture, Charlie Ford, I knew it would pull at my heart strings. If you don’t recall, Jillian was on both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” as […]

Method Soap for a Cause + Cute Pet Contest

Method Designed for Good Campaign

I’m one for trying something new and changing it up, but sometimes I like to stick with what I know. Several years ago, after complaining about the harsh fumes of cleaning products, a health-conscious friend of mine gave me a bottle of Method all-purpose cleaner, and I’ve never looked back. To this day, I still […]

Serena and Lily Blue and White Bedding

Big plans for the weekend? I’m going to be breaking out the golf clubs for the first time this year and hopefully I’ll also be finishing off the planting and other outdoor projects I started before all the rain. I’m one for green and lush, but this is getting ridiculous. Time for sunshine! Yesterday, I […]

Farmer’s Market Basket {Friday’s Fab Find}

Fab Find- Porcelain Berry Box

I have the Katy Perry “T-G-I-F” chanting in my mind today. Anyone else glad it’s Friday? I definitely don’t have those kinds of plans for the weekend, but I am itching to get out of the house for a while. I’m also excited about getting to meet my baby niece on Sunday (I’m a great […]

How is your summer going? We just got back from spending a few gorgeous days at the lake with our friends. Even though we’re all exhausted from the sunshine, boating and late nights, it’s always fun to get away and experience a change of scenery and enjoy a break from the everyday. Laughter is such […]
