Christmas Ornament Haul | Featuring Pier One, Shutterfly, & At Home

paris pic with me

Tis the season! Can you believe just a few days ago we were celebrating Thanksgiving? Then Black Friday took over, and now it’s already Cyber Monday! I feel like the holidays always go by so fast, but that’s probably because of all the crazy busy fun we get to have….from decorating, to gift shopping, to all the Christmas traditions. One of my personal favorite Christmas traditions is decorating our tree! This is something I look forward to every year. I always have those few ornaments that are extra special, or just EXTRA if you know what I mean 😉 and of course, every year I also try to add a few new ones to the mix. I recently took advantage of some Black Friday sales and made a few ornament purchases. So, I thought I’d do a little ornament haul for you in case you need a little inspiration to decorate that gorgeous tree of yours! A few of these ornaments I’ve had for a few years, but luckily they have all been restocked for you. Enjoy!

Los Angeles Travel Guide : Best things to do in Los Angeles

burgundy

The City of Angels…growing up in the music industry I always dreamed about moving to LA and walking in to Capitol Records with demo in hand! I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to actually check out this amazing city, but last month in October my husband, two-year old, and myself visited for a short mini-vacation, and let me tell you the city did not disappoint! Did I get to walk in to Capitol Records with my demo?? Nah, but our hotel was ironically just around the corner, and the Hollywood star that I cared to see the most is also placed at the front entrance to the record label so that’ll have to do 😉 If you are headed to the city of angels anytime soon then read on to follow everything we did, saw, and ate in Los Angeles. Oh, and if you are looking for some of the best Instagram spots in LA, I was on a mission to get as many photos for the Gram as I could, and of course I’ll have to make it back anther time to continue that mission just because the city is so big I couldn’t get to everything! Hope you enjoy my Los Angeles Travel Guide!

Goodbye summer… hello fall! Happy November loves! I know we are well in to the fall season now, and so far I have had the most fun stocking up on all my must have fall essentials for this season. Prints, burgundy, flutter sleeves, courteroy…the list goes on and on! If you remember reading my fall wish list post from a few weeks back, then you may recognize several of these pieces that I’m so excited to share with you. Many of these pieces are perfect summer to fall clothing transitions (especially if you live in an area like me where it’s still 80 degrees some days)! But even if you live somewhere a little cooler, all these pieces will still work for you. By the way, I’m limiting this post to strictly clothing pieces. I promise to dedicate a future post to my must have fall accessories, otherwise this post will be waaaayyyy too long. So, let’s get started!

It’s October!!! And that means fun fall activities, cooler weather, and spooky Halloween decorating! I happen to be a big fan of Halloween, and ever since my husband and I moved in to our home almost four years ago, I’ve been busy accumulating my Halloween decor. I decorate the usual fire-place mantle, front yard, and living room shelving however, this post is going to focus specifically on decorating one of the focal points of your home…your dining table! I love a well-decorated, well put-together dining table any day…and Halloween is no different! So, if you don’t know where to start, or maybe you just want a few new ideas to hold you over through all the Halloween parties you are hosting, I’m here to help you out! Oh, and the best part is that all these pieces below are more on the affordable side. A few of these pieces I’ve accumulated over the years (but have been restocked for you) and several of these pieces I just got this year (yes, I’m stepping up my game)! So let’s get started!
