As an Arizona girl, I am living the cactus dream… along with the triple digit nightmare! But now that summer is here, I am embracing it in full force and am stuck on the cactus trend. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite cactus inspired goodies and stylish recommendations to help bring your cactus-love to life!
I love having greenery in my home, there is something so refreshing about greenery. I will admit that I do not have much of a green thumb so I am always on the lookout for authentic looking plants and decor without the hassle of keeping a real plant alive. One greenery item that I absolutely adore is the preserved boxwood leaves, especially as wreaths. They look good all the time and they are fun to use as statement decor pieces.
This DIY project came to life when I fell in love with the 11″ Smith & Hawken™ preserved boxwood leaves wreath at Target because it is fabulous! The color is a rich green, it comes with a woven hanger and it looks so real! It inspired me to get creative and do a little DIYing!
I have been wanting to add a fun wreath to my eat-in breakfast nook in my kitchen and this wreath was perfect to work with. So I picked up my wreath and ran over to Michaels to select a roll of ribbon… and got crafty.
I have been so excited to share this with you! I was honored with the opportunity to model on a Just Destiny Mag and World Market Styled Easter Brunch collaboration. It was a fun filled day of watching the talented Destiny work her magic with fabulous pieces from World Market. I was able to test out all of the yummy recipes, indulge on the eye candy that is the decorations and learn from the best when it comes to designing a themed tables-cape. Destiny has every aspect covered for your Easter brunch from one-of-a-kind recipes, matching decor, bunco cards/gifts and so much more. Thanks to Destiny and World Market we can all throw an Easter gathering that is one for the books!
If you are not familiar with Just Destiny Mag let me spill the beans. Destiny is a lifestyle blogger, designer, wife to her Mr. Right, mom of 3 and a sweet friend of mine since high school. She lives her life rooted in her faith and gives God all of the glory. Check out her online publication HERE and get ready to drool over all of her creative projects.
My baby is two so you know what that means – PARTY time!
Since we did the big first birthday party, we decided to scale back this year and just celebrate with a few close family members. But, just because it is a small party doesn’t mean it doesn’t need a festive theme and cute decorative touches! I decided to hit up Target (one of my favorite spots) for all of the birthday decor and as usual I found more than enough goodies.
The perfect print can give new life to any space. We have this large wall above our buffet in our kitchen and I have been looking for the right piece to fill the space for quite some time. As you know, picking the perfect statement piece is not that simple; it must be the right size for the wall, must combine all of the styles in the room and since it is the focal point it must be eye catching. After months of searching I fell in love with the Sincerely Us SHOP on Instagram and once I saw this print, I knew it was the perfect addition for our room. It is simple, yet striking and exactly what I was looking for. It displays a saying that speaks us as a family.
The way to my heart is through a personalized gift. I am all about the sentiment behind a well thought out and creatively unique gift. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, to me, it’s the little touches that go along way. So I have teamed up with Shutterfly, the master of everything personalized, to guide you through some of my favorite personalized gifts to help you give the gift of PERSONALIZATION this year! With Shutterfly, personalized gift giving is so easy and definitely the way to go this holiday season.
