NYE Bar Glam with Horchow

Can you guys believe it's almost 2017!!! I mean, where in the world did this year go!?! I always love the fresh start a new year brings, and I'm excited to begin this year organized and in our new home. 

 We all know a new year is a lot more fun when you start if off with a little bubbly and sparkle. That being said, when Horchow reached out and offered to help me bring a little glam to our bar for the New Year, I happily said YES! I mean, who could say no to these adorable countdown flutes?!?

 I'm sure you've all probably noticed by now that I have a slight obsession with white and gold, so Horchow and their decor section is a dream come true for me. I had such a hard time narrowing down what to get for our new bar, so I tried to select pieces that I knew I could use everyday and also during the holidays as well. I can already tell this platter, and these gorgeous trumpet flutes will be pulled out a lot around here.

Horchow really does have some of the most stunning furniture and home decor ever. For a peek at more of my favorites you can shop below.

Thank you Horchow for partnering on this post.

Checking In + Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Good morning, and happy hump day! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas like we did. 

This is officially the longest break in blogging I've ever taken, and while it was nice and much needed, I sure did miss you guys and this space. 

The kids have been going stir crazy and being silly in their new mini rocker speaker chairs. Rocky is clearly not fazed or amused.

// I feel like we are finally starting to get settled in our new home, and it feels so good. I've been on an organizing frenzy, and I almost have the kitchen, pantry, and laundry room complete. I'll be sure to take pictures and share all my tips/storage details really soon, but for now here's a little sneak peek of the pantry. 

//  And last, but not least, Nordstrom just started their half yearly sale and there are so many good things marked down. Below is a little list of my favorites. 

I love this tunic so much that I have it in the black and burgundy! And for reference, it runs HUGE, so go down at least two sizes.

Christmas Cards and Pretty Wrapping

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! I'm so excited to share our 2016 Christmas cards from Minted with you guys. One of my favorite things about the holidays is picking out our Christmas cards, and then adding in my favorite family photo. We've used Minted for our Christmas cards the last three years, and their quality never disappoints. And for the first time this year, I also ordered their gorgeous gift wrap, ribbons, personalized stamps and gift tags. And just like their cards, the quality and beauty were exceptional! 

And for all of my last minute friends, don't worry, if you order your cards today Minted will not only ship them for free, but they will have them to you by Friday. And if you still have a gift or two to order (like myself) Minted will personalize it, and then get it to you by Christmas Eve on Saturday! Now that's what I call some awesome customer service, along with some super speedy shipping :) 

Here are a few of my favorite personalized gifts below. 

Thank you Minted for partnering on this post.

We moved + Outfit Roundup

// Hey guys, and happy Monday! Life (as I'm sure most of you can guess) has been a little crazy around here :) We closed on our new home late Thursday afternoon, and I swear, the last four days have been nothing but a blur. I have mentioned before that Todd and I decided to rent our old home back an extra month, so this way we could move slowly and not feel rushed/stressed with the holidays being so close. Plus, I really wanted to pack and move everything ourselves, and I knew that wouldn't be possible if we had to move fast (not to mention it happening the week before Christmas). 

So, while we have most of our furniture and necessities at the new home, we still have a lot to move (or possibly sell). I promise to share more of the house soon, but right now it's a hot mess express full of boxes. 

All of the holiday decor is a mix from Frontgate and Grandinroad, and is part of their Jolly Holiday and Savannah collections.  

And because I still have about 100 boxes to go through, I'm going to keep it simple and share with a big ol' recent outfit roundup with y'all! 

Sweater // Jeans // Necklace // Pumps also here 

Sweater (runs big so size down, for reference, I'm wearing the xxs) 
Jeans (on sale) // Boots // Earrings 

Sweater // Jeans // Pumps also here // Bracelet

Cozy Fair Isle

Outfit Details 

Happy Friday loves! It is currently 34 degrees here in Charleston.
With that said, my new fair isle turtleneck sweater and cable knit hat from Nordstrom are perfect for a cold day like today. I really love the gorgeous navy and pink colors in this sweater. And another added bonus, is this wool is really soft and not itchy like most wools. 

I've been on a major beanie/hat kick lately, and I've spotted so many that are soooo pretty at Nordstrom in their cold weather accessories department. For just a few of my favorites you can shop below.

On My Christmas List...

Happy Hump Day, y'all! We should be unpacking boxes and having a champagne toast right about now, but....the final inspection and appraisal didn't come back until Monday, so tomorrow is now our new closing date. On a brighter and cheery note, I always love hearing what other people have on their Christmas list, so I thought it would be fun to share what I have on mine this year :) 

 I adore all my Barefoot Dream pieces, so I know I would love this robe. The only problem would be getting me out of it. 

 Obsessed with this abstract art, and that matte brass frame has me swooning. And I already have the perfect place for this beauty in our new home! 

 I've tried many different flat irons, but nothing compares to my GHD. Right now, I am in desperate need of a new blow dryer, so I figured with this set being such a great deal, it wouldn't hurt to put it on my list ;) 

 I'm loving the removable fur on this gorgeous down jacket. Not to mention, we have a big mountain trip coming up in February, and I'm sure it will be really cold and snowing. 

I've been on a major hat kick lately, and I can't get enough of all the adorable beanies. Along with looking cute, I know this one would keep my head and ears super warm too! 

 I was sold as soon as I spotted the metallic bronze check on these ;) 

I've been on the hunt for a good conditioning lip balm, and judging from the reviews, this one is wonderful! 

Last, but not least, are a few pieces from the Le Creuset cast iron collection. These pieces are super expensive, but totally worth it! And right now, almost all the pieces at Nordstrom are on sale, even this beautiful pink color that is my absolute favorite!!
