Hello, Vaulted Ceilings

December 28, 2014

Man do I love vaulted ceilings. 
A few weeks ago, we went to a friend's house who has a vaulted ceiling living room going into the kitchen. Not only does it add great space to a smaller room, but it allows for awesome possibilities with statement light fixtures.

Can't help but dream about the possibilities with the beautiful spaces.

Deck Your Nails - Holiday Style

December 22, 2014

I love the holiday time and this year made a point to soak up every second of it. We put our Christmas tree up right after Thanksgiving and started playing Christmas music just as early. So when Julep reached out to me to share how I deck my nails and outfit for the holidays I had to share. I love how the holidays and particularly New Years are the perfect excuse for metallic, glitter and sequins. I painted my nails white and added glittery gold in an arch on the nail beds. I'm obsessed with the look, and it was really easy to do. You just paint the white base first and add the gold with a french tip art guide or by hand. What You'll Need: Andrea, Brigitte, Base Coat, Top Coat.

Why'd I pick white and gold? It's my favorite pairing and can go with any outfit over the holidays. Here are some of my favorite metallic looks.

Gift Guide No. 3 - Plant Presents

December 15, 2014

Plants are in - you're either a long time plant owner who knows there's more out there than succulents (plant people ARE the new cat lady) or you've pretty much killed every plant you've ever owned...and then you found succulents and snake plants (guilty as charged). There might be a third type...those of us decor fiends who spotted fiddle leaf fig trees on the pages of our worshiped magazines and we were determined to garden like our grandmas.

Whichever "type" of plant person we're talking about, plants can make a great gift for the holiday season. Here are some great plant gifts ideas. I threw in a plant painting in case you or your gift receiver really are plant person type 2 (no judging)- because hey, pictures of plants are pretty too.

Holiday Party Ready

December 08, 2014

This really is my most favorite time of the year. The Christmas spirit, the holiday parties and the time with family is hard to beat. And for the more simple things in's also the perfect excuse for sequins which are always a blast to wear.  Here are some of my favorite jeweled and sparkly picks for the holiday season. And good news - a lot of retailers have continued on their Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals making it easier to splurge or dress for the occasion.
