Office Merriment

Thanks to Staples for sponsoring today’s post! One of my favorite things about the holidays is spreading cheer throughout my home. No surface is safe. Seriously, there’s no such thing as too much color, tinsel, lights, or glitter. As Ina Garten would say “Who wouldn’t love that?” After traveling quite a bit recently, I’m back […]

Holiday Letter Bling

Hey there, friends! I’m back with another 10-Minute Decorating Idea. You may remember that I teamed up with some of my blogger friends and host Laura of Finding Home this year to share decorating tips and tricks that can come together in fewer than 10 minutes. With the holidays almost upon us, we figured that […]

Pretty in Pink

Believe it or not, I’ve been decorating for Christmas since early October. Well, sort of. Last year I received a couple trees from Treetopia and used them in decking out my home for the holidays. (You can check the trees out here and here.) Treetopia was so pleased with my mad tree trimming skills that […]

Office Updates

Happy Monday, friends! It’s been months since I’ve had you all in my office space, so I figured today we could quickly pop in and check out what’s new. Although there haven’t been any major changes, I did get a new rug, so things are looking different and more pulled together. Since I first turned […]

It’s been a whirlwind, and I’ve loved every minute of it. No […]

Making Progress. Kind of.

My house has been driving me crazy lately. Like “wanna pull my hair out” crazy. Like, literally “staring at the same area for hours” crazy. Now, I know I’ve managed to show you my house when it looks somewhat put together. My Fall Home Tour for example. However, that lasted for about an hour (if […]

Color Hunting in the Caribbean

The Caribbean (or some other warm, tropical place) just might be where I’m destined to be. As I mentioned here on IBC, last week my mom and I set sail on a Carnival cruise. Not only was it super special because I got to spend tons of time with Mom, but I was able to […]

Obsessed with Emily Henderson

Hey there, friends! It’s Tuesday so I thought we could all use an inspiration boost. As many of you have probably guessed, I’m kind of obsessed with Emily Henderson. And in case it hasn’t been glaringly obvious, I just needed to put it out there. I think most of us have our design heroes, and lately […]
