Outdoor Fun

We are all likely to be spending more time at home this summer than we typically would, so my plan is to create as much fun as we can. We cleaned out our garage over the weekend and dug out all the summer toys to wipe down and immediately put into play. Our kids love […]

A Pretty Layer: Kimonos and Ruanas

If you’re anything like me, you’re finding it a little bit difficult to break free of your sweats lately. But with warmer weather (hopefully) on the way, many of us are going to be spending a lot more time outdoors. From walks around your neighborhood, back yard grilling and wherever else we may be able […]

Coffee Talk

Guys, if you’re not a coffee drinker, I’m sorry. Kidding of course, but my first cup of coffee each morning is something I look forward to now more than ever! We used a Keurig for years which was convenient, but I think I forgot what I was missing. We switched back to a drip pot […]

Outdoor Living Spaces

This past weekend while we enjoyed some incredible weather we started getting our back deck put together. It’s always so rejuvenating to create another space, or rather, an extension of your home and living space. I have a feeling most of us will be spending even more time at home than we typically do this […]

Mother’s Day: Gift Guide

The days all seem to run together lately, but there’s one day that’s approaching that should certainly stand out from the rest…Mother’s Day. Moms around the world are in over-drive right now and they deserve some recognition now more than ever. Whether you decide to gift her with something sentimental, practical, or to pamper her […]

Insta Lately

Hi all! I figured it was time for a little ‘Insta Update’. I share so much of life and daily (quarantine) outfits over there and a lot of it never makes it over here to the blog. So for the sake of sharing and documenting, here’s what’s been going on over the past month or […]

Sephora: Sale Favorites

Sephora’s spring sale opens to Insiders today (just an fyi, it’s free to sign up) giving everyone access to 10-20% off their purchase. Cosmetics rarely go on sale, so I always enjoy taking advantage of any discount I can get. Most of the items you’ll see me sharing below have been long-time favorites of mine. […]

Bathroom Refresh: Sherwin Williams Reflection

I don’t know where you fall in terms of home projects right now. When the quarantine initially began, I found myself tackling small projects around the house, like cleaning out drawers and reorganizing our pantry shelves. Then we did a big deep, spring clean throughout the house. We also began tackling some of the annual […]

Loving Lately: PJ’s

Second to lounge-wear, my pajamas are getting more than their fair share of wear these days. Since I know we won’t have anyone randomly coming to our door, I don’t always have a reason to get out of my pj’s! I’m someone that can hold onto my sleepwear for much longer than I probably should. […]

Why We Love Our Crate & Barrel Lounge II Sectional

It’s been a year and a half since we brought Crate & Barrel’s Lounge II sectional into our home and my only regret is having waited so long to decide on it! We knew our family room needed something big and cozy for our family of five, but making such a big (and expensive) decision […]
