Happy September! August was truly one of the busiest, but most fulfilling months I have had in a long time. After working for a design firm since I graduated college I decided it was finally time to venture off on my own full time. I didn’t approach the decision to quit my job lightly, but […]

I want to share more of what I buy or am inspired by on a weekly or semi-weekly basis. I love seeing what people actually buy and getting a little review on how they are liking said piece. I have been taking a bit of a break from the blog (more to come on this), […]

I am constantly asked about good places to buy inexpensive art so I was very excited when I saw that Art.com now has a large selection of pieces sold at Walmart.com. Whenever I am in need of a little decor refresh I instantly pull a new piece of art. I often look for unexpected pieces […]

Since I announced our engagement I received a lot of questions in regards to our registry. I had never really put much thought into a wedding registry because we have lived together for years and have already very much combined our belongings.

I would recommend also reading the post How I […]

By now it is probably very obvious that I do A LOT of shopping on Amazon. It has surprisingly become my go to resource for coffee table books, candles I want to get quickly and cool affordable accents. I am so spoiled by the free two say shipping that I don’t even like ordering things […]

This past weekend I had the absolute best one night getaway to Sonoma. I am trying to be better about taking advantage of the fact that we live so close to wine country. I used to go all the time, but as life has gotten busier I haven’t made one night trips as much of […]
