Plan Ahead For Festive Fall and Winter Decor

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

You kind of have to plan ahead to get the good, inexpensive, yet amazing for the holidays or just for sprucing up the home decor items. Here are my picks before they sell out. Want that cute turkey bowl? Sadly, if you wait til right before thanksgiving you'll either pay top dollar for something else or this one will be sold out! Same is true for most of these items. The early bird catches the worm and I plan to catch a few this season:)

Life, Clothes, Jewelry and Cocktails

Summer is always super crazy but I'm still trying to post regularly. I read a quote I love: "Do not spend so much time treading water and trying to kep your head above the waves that you forget how much you have always loved to swim." 

So heres some snapshots as of late!

So many awesome items included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017. You can even take advantage of perfumes like Angel which is one of my favorites. Its one of thoses scents that is clean and fresh and easily becomes your signature scent.

I also had to include  Kate Summerville Serum in my list of top picks because I've been wanting to try it and it NEVER goes on sale anywhere! 

Be sure to stock up before August 3rd because I promise you that come Fall, you're going to buy something full priced that you could've gotten for way less, so PRE-PLAN, PRE-PLAN, PRE-PLAN!

Wedding in Telluride at Gorrano Ranch: All you Need is Love and Cake


The wedding itself was set with the backdrop of the mountains from the Coors Light ads. This photo doesn't even do it justice....


Doesn't this fire pit make you want to sit down and take a load off? I got so comfortable there while the bride was taking pictures, I didn't want to move! And how cute are these wedges? Get them here........


The wedding was located at Gorrano Ranch in the mountains of Telluride....the sunset was STUNNING!


This is one of the bars where they served any cocktail you wanted and offered yet another cozy retreat if you needed to take a break from dancing. It dates back to the 1800s and has the coolest vibe...



This wa such an amazing trip for one of my best friends weddings. It was in Telluride, Colorado and it was SPECTACULAR. There is so much to see and do and it was a great place to go with children. We took them bike riding, hiking, shopping and up the mountain to see beautiful waterfalls. I highly recommend driving to the base of Bridal Veil falls and then hiking around and up the mountain just a little to go see the old  mining tracks and cave. The kids loved it, and since we only hiked a little it wasn't to strenuous. Keep in mind my youngest isn't even two yet.
Such a great experience, I highly recommend a trip here!

Best Ways to Style a Bookshelf


Levels: Put your absolute favorite things at eye level...I love this bear canister with golden crown and the quote about motherhood and both are right where I can see them. I must look at these two pieces a hundred times a day!


Elements: Don't be afraid to mix elements. Matchy matchy will look too contrived. Gold, silver, pewter black; it all goes together if you can bring it in somewhere else and have at least two of each color somewhere on your bookshelf. Just don't put two gold pieces right next to each other....

Proportion:Every shelf next to each other should have a different number of items on it. Odd numbers tend to look the nicest but if your shelves are small ones and twos can look nicely proportioned as well.


Anchoring: Books look great with a weight of some sort when laying flat or grouped in smaller numbers. When laying flat, I like to "anchor my books" with a cute plant or decorative object of a smaller scale....

Life Lately

It's summer so we are busy as heck around here! I've basically given up tv so that i can blog or work on jewelry because theres no time during the day to do anything!  We've definitely had some fun though and have gotten our share of beach time.

And below is my summer outdoor table decor. My sons love the 4th of July flag so it will stay for a while. But I love my black and white table linens so much. You can get them HERE.


Summer is halfway through and this necklace is so perfect for the season so i have to get on it and finish it up...Tassles are the trend right now so I want to hurry up and get it on my website asap....

Top 9 Garden Party Essentials


Today I'm sharing my top 9 Garden Party Essentials.
Fourth of July is over but summer isnt even close to being over yet and there are so many reasons to throw a party!

First, start with any old table and casually drape any inexpensive floral fabric over it as shown in the top photo...Gorgeous right?!

Secondly you must serve on beautiful trays. I like these basic yet inexpensive ones from Sur La Table. From around 30$ and they are white so they go with everything. Score.

 You cant have a garden party without an adroable hat....

Casually throw bohemian style pillows all over the place. I like bohemian because it kind of breaks up the whole floral scene a little and adds a special personal spin to the atmosphere...

Creat a signature cocktail, such as this amazingingly refreshing Prosecco Cooler...recipe in link below...
Source Recipe Here

I'd wear this dress, but any floral, lightweight or bohemian style dress will do.



Add a fun, girly statement necklace from my favorite designer on the planet...ahem, yours truly, LOL....

And finally, strutt your stuff in comfy stacked heels that will transition nicely into fall, and clutch on to this adorable straw purse....

These posts are so much fun to do, I really enjoy them! For me, any party where I'm with great friends and good food is more than enough but I cant help but love obsessing over little details that make it extra fun. Im hoping to do some more of my own entertaining this summer!
