Just a few of my Favorite Things- Christmas Edition


My wishlist is pretty versatile this year from fashion items to home decor. I’m an easy gal to shop for, so I think! 🙂

I’ve been dying for some J. Crew Etta Pumps, but can’t decide plaid or the adorable sparkly heel! Which do you like best?
Also loving Jane Iredale BB cream and makeup since it’s all natural and amazing.
Other items include new glasses since I sat on my Fendi ones and broke them! (sad day for me.)
Of course I’d love to add to my Alex & Ani collection and loving the spiky bangle to spice my arm candy up.
A new-school Polaroid camera would be so fun as well as the classic cream Burberry scarf and a few new throw pillows for my favorite sectional couch.

Home Finds

I am so excited to be closing on my own home this month and have been having tons of fun searching furniture websites and “pinning” decor ideas.  Some of the stuff I have come across have been to cool not to share.

Go Bold or Go Home

A huge part of my style in fashion, home decor, and even food is color.  I am not one to paint all my walls beige or wear all gray & black.  Adding bold color to your home (or even your outfit) can be very intimidating so it’s important to start small.  Below are a few of my picks for accenting color in your home.  From a simple candle to a bold accent chair, these items are very rational and delightfully bold.

Small Space Decor

As a twenty-something newly married, working gal on-the-go, I wanted to make the most of our small space condo.  I also wanted to make my space feel like home by customizing and decorating to my personal style. With a limited budget and some resourceful creativity, here is what we did to our place.

1. Bold master bedroom.

We were a little nervous at first but went for it.  The color here is Benjamin Moore Miami Green.  Comforter is Martha Stewart Shimmer collection. Oh, & Jingles made it into this picture, this is her fave room because we get a lot of sunlight here. 🙂

2. Beach themed bathroom.

Since beach-themed items are accessible and cheap free on the beach, it was the easiest decor to pull off in a bathroom.  From real seashells to a bag of seaglass, these accents were very inexpensive & effortless.

3. Wine as Decor.

Both pretty & extrememly handy.  Wall Wine racks- IKEA

4.  Safari Living Room.

Why not use animal print for pillow couches?  With a little real photography from a family member in Africa and some bold prints, we were able to pull of a chic looking space for our living room.
