Christmas decorating will always be one of my favorite things. There’s just something magical that the lights and greenery bring to a space. I switched up a few things and tried some new this year so lets take a Christmas home tour! Christmas in the kitchen Lets start in my favorite spot, the kitchen. I always love to do the garland above the window with some lights. This year I switched out to a new garland from the past couple years. You can see the other one in my Holiday Decor Tips and Ideas. I also added some whimsical elements like the Christmas Cookie book, gingerbread house and candy canes. The kids love having the candy canes around!   Dining Room Since finishing this accent wall in our dining room was still fairly recent I wasn’t prepared to hang anything directly on it yet haha. Adding a pencil tree was…
This weekend we spent the entire time out and about enjoying some fun holiday festivities together.  We’ve been really trying to make the most of the holiday season and enjoy family time as much as possible.  *This is a sponsored post in partnership with Chevrolet, all opinions are my own   Winter outings We tried to come up with a few winter outings we could do while still being outside and staying safe. It was really nice having the Chevy Tahoe for longer rides and we had plenty of space. There are so many fun and festive activities available right now so here are just a few we did.     Drive In movie One big stop we made was heading to a drive in movie at Lakeside Mall. They had 4 different movies to choose from and a couple time slots so it was easy to find one…
Happy Holidays, friends! I’m so excited for my favorite time of year! Enjoying the season festivities like seeing lights, enjoying hot chocolate and watching Christmas movies are some of my favorite things to enjoy with my family and I’m sure some of yours too. I really wanted to focus on taking the stress out of the holiday shopping process for you so you can use that time to enjoy the things you love. But I do personally really enjoy wrapping presents, anyone else?!   *Photos by Ray of Life Photography     Holiday Gift Guides I broke the gift guides into 4 different categories below for more ease. A lot of the items are things we have and love or even something thats on our list 😉 Everything is directly linked beneath each guide. And don’t forget that what means most to our family and friends is the gesture…
We recently added a little bar cart to our dining space to create some fun set ups while staying at home this season. Once it was put together the kids made me promise the first thing we would do is make a hot chocolate bar. Done! Hot Chocolate Bar Setup I tried to keep it fairly simple and whimsical when putting it together. First I filled in the space with some decor like mini trees, lights, and a cake stand to vary the height a little.  Next I added all the hot chocolate components including hot chocolate mix in a cute jar, candy canes and some toppings (mini marshmallows, crushed candy canes, and mini chocolate chips). I always just use what I have around the house as far as serving pieces. I usually just use mason jars or small bowls or ramekins like the ones here. Lastly you want…

  DIY Wood Accent Wall We have been in our house for over 3 years now and this large wall in our dining room has been a spot I could never decide what to do with. Everything I came up with or was going to try just never seemed like the right fit. When we decided to overhaul our dining space and thought about doing  wood accent wall I knew it was finally going to be something we loved! The design Before we began we had to figure out what kind of design we wanted on the wall. Jesse wanted a very geometric pattern while I just wanted basic vertical pieces. We knew we had to figure out a comprise. We went about doing this by using painters tape and laying out a few different designs. It was about finding a design that fitted best in the space and…
As we have stepped into fall I love to try to make a space feel seasonal without having to change everything. Here’s a peek at some fall living room accents that don’t require an over haul. Fall Living Room Accents A good rule of thumb to follow with most areas of the home is texture and layers. Doing those two things will add dimension and make a space feel cozy and welcoming. But the best part about those is that they don’t always have to be seasonal specific. Just a few touches of fall will make a big impact.  The mantle I kept somewhat simple this year but still have varying heights. One great item to use anytime is greenery. It can easy be adapted for any season. Here I just used a basic faux garland and eucalyptus and just added a couple pieces with some fall inspired colors….
I can’t believe how fast summer is flying by and its already time to round up the July favorites. Like most months, the favorites are a combo of fashion and home finds so lets go! Trousers and Aviators The top 2 items were these Stellar Trousers and High Key Aviators. These trousers (and jacket) were a new purchase for me in July and I cannot stop wearing them! They wear like activewear but you can style them so many ways. Plus mostly importantly, they are sooo comfy. My aviator sunnies have been a daily staple for months. I love how they are a bit oversized and look good on everyone! Product details   Master Bathroom Mirror and Lights This master bathroom is still one of my favorite renovations in our house. I just love how all the details came together. These mirrors are heavy duty and the rounded corners…
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview is now live so I thought I would share some of my favorite pieces and a few shopping tips. After working for Nordstrom for many years this has definitely become one of my favorite sales. The main difference between this sale and many others is that the merchandise is new merchandise arriving for fall that is temporarily discounted for the sale and then goes back to regular price; while most sales are items at the end of the season when inventory is being moved out. The Details The Anniversary sale is open to everyone from August 19th – 30th with prices going back up on the 31st. All cardholders can gain early access on August 13th with some levels being able to access earlier. This year the main difference is the preview is all available online and the best part is you can add items…
Over the years I’ve learned to rely on a few different products to get a sun kissed look. I am one who doesn’t naturally get a tan, mostly because I am a big advocate for sunscreen since I am fair and tend to burn easily. You will see me in a big floppy hat majority of the time I am in the sun. I also live in Michigan and our sunshine is limited here haha! So I have found some favorite products to give me the glow I’m looking for.   Get that sun kissed look Nars products have been a favorite of mine for years. Their bronzer (I used shade Laguna) has been a staple of mine as long as I can remember. The undertones are neutral and done turn orange on me. I also have been using Nars Multiple for some time now as well. This product…
When it comes to finding kitchen decor I love pieces that are functional as well as decorative. I have recently found a lot of great amazon kitchen decor that I wanted to share. The style of my kitchen is kind of a modern farmhouse but these pieces will pretty much work into any design style. Two of my current favorite things in my kitchen are my faux greenery and my dutch oven. These faux greens I have used all over my house. They come in a pack of three and they go great everywhere! A dutch oven is another great piece because of its function and design. I use mine all the time and just leave it out on my stove because its so pretty. Linking some other similar affordable dutch over options because they can get pricey and mine is not currently available. Click an image for product…
If I could ask for one thing for Mother’s Day it would be some extra sleep bottled up! Since that’s not a realistic option I rounded up some great last minute Mother’s Day gifts to spoil her. Right now we are all loving everything cozy and things that make staying at home the best it can be. Here are some great things you can still get in time. This is a perfect time to gift new pj or loungewear sets since the season is changing.   Last Minute Mothers Day Gifts Other great things to gift are ones that can give you that spa like feeling with my new favorite nail polish brand or a pretty diffuser. Moms also love anything for their coffee or wine that makes it feel personal for them. Check out all these other options that you can even do store pickup if you need…
