Good Morning & Happy Friday!!

Finally, the weekend!  This has been an extremely longer than normal week and I'm thankful for a little relaxation that I see in my future.  Not only have I worked 40 hours, but I've done a lot of hair this week, plus entertained guests for a dinner party and cleaned out and organized my closet a little to get caught up with this beautiful weather we've been having.  In a nut shell--long week!  We're having family in from out of town this weekend too, so I get to host the Runion Bed & Breakfast, which I love. :)

Here are a few of my favorites from this week, enjoy!

Shoes, Shoes & More Shoes...

Good Morning Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a great week!  We're almost to the weekend, and it is much needed for me!  Any of you who know me already know that I have a slight shoe obsession--aka I've dedicated an entire room to them.  But, I'm at a point where I have a few that are not really my style anymore or some that I just don't love as much.  So I've been in the mood to switch it up--out with the old and in with the new!  Here are a few of my faves that are currently on the "get list":

Tory Burch: Caroline patent leather logo ballet flats

dolce vita | archer sandal in nude

really want these!

I think I need every color...

Need these for summer!

can't go wrong with kate.
Christian Louboutin
Hey, a girl can dream can't she??

Currently loving all of these styles!  I'm really into wedges and flats for Spring.  Here is my decision making process in a nut shell:

Have a lovely Thursday everyone! :)

Good Morning!

So sorry for the delay in not posting a blog yesterday!  My morning was nothing short of crazy!! I'm still getting used to having to work alllll day instead of my previous job, where I was working a little...blogging a little...working a little...blogging a little, you get it. :) Now, I either have to blog at 11:00 at night after my day slows down or at 6:00 AM when I can barely hold my eyes open...I still love it though!

I have seen so many hilarious things on Pinterest lately!  I literally laugh so hard, all by myself.  Laughing really is the best medicine for anyone, so I thought I might post a few to make you laugh today!

Funny :)

this is me. :)
For Nan.
It'a true!!!
so nice at the end of a long day...hahah!

Moral of today's blog:
i love this quote #laughter
Have a fun day!

Good Monday Morning Loves!

Wow, this crazy, whirlwind weekend has been so much fun, but it's also made me feel like I need a few more hours of sleep today!  My weekend consisted of a rehearsal dinner, doing a little wedding hair for a couple of my sweet friends, going to the wedding and rehearsal, a late night movie that was waaayyy past my bed time and of course Church and family time yesterday. Whew, that's a lot for one weekend!

This year, I am hosting Easter at my house for the 1st time.  I'm so excited about decorating and making a few things that will add a little extra fun to my Springy decorations.  Here are a few Easter decorating ideas:

Peeps Centerpiece

Moss Covered Wreath with Burlap Rosettes RESERVED
Painted Easter Egg Table Setting
Easter Egg Cupcakes

So many cute ideas--I can't wait to decorate!  I hope you all have a great day!

Bedroom Bliss

Good Morning Loves!

I hope you are all having a great week!  This week has been crazy for me and I am really looking forward to a little down time this weekend to relax.  What's better than sleeping in on a Saturday morning in your very own bed?  Nothing.  For me, when I think of the most relaxing place in the world--it's my bed.  Sure, I'm in love with the Beach and taking romantic vacations in Hotels with Spa's, but when I'm think about everyday life (and I'm thinking realistically), nothing beats laying in my comfortable bed surrounded by plush and warmth.  :) Sounds pretty perfect, huh?

The Bedroom is probably my favorite room in a home.  I love that it's the place you spend so much time--you sleep, get ready, watch late night TV or movies and so many other things in this one room.  I think that your bedroom should reflect who you are and what you love.  For example, J and I adore an "antique charm" feel so our bedroom is decorated with a couple of lamps, an old oil lantern, a quilt (I mean it's from Pottery Barn, but it feels and looks old!) :), picture frames and distressed accent pieces.  There are not too many places that top my chic bedroom and warm bed.  Although, I know I love it so much because of who I get to share it with! :)

Here are a few of my favorite Bedroom Ideas:

Curtain rods hung from the ceiling to simulate a canopy bed
Long Canopy-like drapes create a romantic feel to a room.  I love how these puddle on the floor!

I'm obsessed with this storage cabinet.  I love the rustic look it has and it's filled with a few of my favorite things--old quilts, books and pillows. 

creams & white love perfect
This room is lovely.  I love the neutral colors and the simplicity of it.

Decorating pieces are the key to making any room look incredible.  I love the old frames and how it's a few random things thrown together.  You can't go wrong with a beautiful mantle over your bed, either!

RusticThis room is so chic.  I adore the rustic headboard and light fixture.  These are two pieces that surprisingly look amazing together.  Plus, I love the monogrammed pillow.

Well, if I haven't made you want to run home to jump back in bed yet--you're crazy!  :)  Enjoy every room in your home.  You've worked hard to make it special and the best part of all is IT'S YOURS!  So kick those shoes off this afternoon when you get off work and take full advantage of your comfy bedroom! :)

Wardrobe Wednesday

Good Morning Dolls!

Happy Hump Day!  After today, the week is almost over and we have a beautiful weekend ahead.

Most of my favorite Blogs that I follow daily are fashion blogs.  What can I say?  I love reading about new trends and seeing photos of how girls pull these super cute outfits together.  So, every so often, I thought I may post a Wardrobe blog.  Nothing too special, just  a few ideas on trends I'm loving at the moment.  People ask me all the time where I get some of my jewelry, clothes or shoes, so I'll do a few posts like this and see how you guys like it! :)

Here is an outfit from this past weekend when J and I were going to a family cookout! :)

Top: Banana Republic Jeans: Seven for All Mankind {similar style here} Belt: J Crew {here} Watch: Michael Kors {here} Bracelet: J Crew & Forever 21 Cuff: Kenneth Jay Lane {here} Earrings: Kate Spade {similar style here} & you can't see the Shoes but they are: Steve Madden {similar style here}

Hope you all have a lovely day!

But more importantly, Happy First Day of Spring!  I have to say, Spring is one of my favorite Seasons and I love all that comes with it. (Minus the Bees, no one likes them!)

A Little POP of Color!

Good Monday Morning Loves!

Well, it's 6:00AM and I'm trying to hold my eyes open while drinking as much coffee as possible in order to get ready for my first day at my new job!  I'm very, very excited and cannot wait to get there, meet new people and start learning!  New adventures are always fun. :)

I'm obsessed with all of the beautiful colors out right now for the upcoming season (which by the way, tomorrow is the first day of Spring)!!  Sometimes, I find myself stuck in a rut wearing a lot of black's, cream's and blush's.  Which don't get me wrong, I adore those colors, but it's always nice to throw a little color into every outfit.  So that's my goal this season--to branch out when shopping and buy COLOR!  Here are a few of my favorite photos that inspire me:

summer kiss, love this.
Ann Taylor Elizabeth Flats
comfy and cute
LOVE this!

I love the simplicity of these photos, but the colors add so much to the outfit!  Finally--Spring! :)

I hope you all have a great Monday!
