Winter's Hottest Accessory.
If you follow my 101 things i love Facebook page, you know my affinity for a good daily deal. I share one every evening. Or at least I try! (if you're not, like my page to see items ranging from great sweaters to heels at great prices) Well, today is a special exception because while we might be closing the books on January...we're still in the throws of winter.
...and if you're an Instagram junkie like myself, you've probably started to see these chunky knit blankets all over. Sure, they are great for styling you're latest beauty finds for that Instagram-worthy shot but let's be honest, the real purpose is to SNUGGLE. Have you seen anything more amazing or cozy? I think not!
I've linked my favorites above. I purchased the second image in a muted, light gray and I CANNOT wait for it to arrive. Truthfully, it was poor planning because I really need it for Super Bowl Sunday. Am I right or am I right?
The only thing I am not certain of is the washability of these throw blankets. It's made out of merino wool hence I think you have to be very delicate with the giant weaves. I will be using mine as a throw at the foot of our bed so that little hands don't spill purple Gatorade on it. (that just happened this morning on my faux fur throw blanket, btw)
Just thought I'd share my latest obsession. Fashion is fun but that doesn't mean my shopping tendencies don't stray to decor every once in awhile. Enjoy and Happy Shopping!
Besides my family’s health and safety, the one thing I am most grateful for in 2018 is friendship. I’ve touched on the subject quite a few times, most recently here, but they have a tremendous impact on my daily outlook and my energy. My girlfriends give me a support system that is irreplaceable.
What’s your typical state of mind? Is it stress? Is it calm? Is it busy? Is it bliss? Or, if you are like me, it could be a combination of all of the above taking place in a span of 24 hours. That’s more like motherhood, right?
For me, a good scent evokes calm at the end of a stressful day. Calm is so often associated with nature, too. Think citrus, bamboo or orchid. In fact, I’ll do you one better. Think Febreze ONE.
I feel like life is moving at the speed of sound and with it...my blog has been sitting in the corner weeping for more frequency. I am TRYING but man, this time of year is intensely busy. I decided to do an Instagram round up of all the goodness we are experiencing this month and last month.
I think it's safe to say that the one eyesore in our house was the office. Really, I spend the most time in it and it's my domain. It didn't know what it wanted to be other than vanilla walls and a really bad paint job coupled with horrible blue carpet with stains from the kids and muddy feet. It was slightly maddening but it wasn't a priority...until now.
Summer is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier. Summer means more outside time and more family time. No matter how much time we spend outside, everyone, myself included, needs a moment to themselves. I call it “quiet time” and I’ve trained my girls to take an hour everyday.

Gift giving has arrived my friends! When I think of the items I use daily, the absolute necessities in life, they are often brilliant inventions that have a practical function in my life. Believe it or not, they aren't shoes or dresses, they're items that help me function as a parent, a host, an entertainer...you know, an overall renaissance woman of sorts. Totally kidding!
This post is coming at you late for a number of reasons - two of which happen to be: 1. I drank a bottle of wine last night (oops! - summer, it's your fault) and 2. this week is off to a nutty start. I feel like everyone just returned from Memorial Day and needs everything...NOW!
What inspires you? Is it the energy you receive after attending a great event? Is it a piece of art? Is it googling inspirational quotes? Is it random acts of kindness? Is it reading a new #girlboss piece on your favorite site?
Gettin' real with ya folks. Today you're going to see a bunch of "before's." We're nearing the end of our master bedroom renovation so I thought I would give you an update. It's been ages since we took on a huge project. And for good reason...it's a mess and this fashionista can't stand disorder.
