    Master Bedroom Refresh with Orian Rugs

    Happy day, friends! It’s a gloomy June day here in San Diego, so I’m hanging out inside, drinking some coffee, and getting a few work related things done! It’s also been a hot minute since I’ve gotten a blog post to y’all! So today I wanted to give y’all a little tour of our master bedroom refresh, with the biggest change of all being our new Orian Rug! **Orian was kind enough to gift me this rug in exchange for my honest review – please see more of my Disclosure policy HERE** But let’s start with the BEFORE shot, shall we?

    A Winter Wonderland Christmas Home Tour

    Hello Fiddle Leaf friends!  Can you believe it’s already December?! 2018 just flew right by! Now that we’re rapidly approaching Christmas, several amazingly talented ladies and I have decided to do a Christmas Blog Hop showcasing our Christmas decor, DIYs, recipes, and general festivating with you!  You can click to all of their pages at the end of this post! As for me, I wanted to give y’all a tour of our downstairs Christmas decor (because the upstairs still looks semi-tornado-ish after returning from our trip to Oregon for Thanksgiving)! Oops! But you know, we live here. 😛  The downstairs though, is exactly as I pictured, a twinkly and cozy…

    Holiday Top 10s – Christmas Decor Items

    Hello Fiddle Leaf Friends! If you follow me over on Instagram, you’ll know I decked the halls a bit early this year! I’ve got so many more spaces of my home to show you (and a full Holiday Home Tour will be here on the blog soon!), but I’ve already gotten so many questions on several of my Christmas/Winter decor pieces this year.  I’ve also been doing my last minute (yes, November is LAST minute for my list loving/planner heart) holiday shopping, and have found some amazing gifts at fabulous prices! And hence, the… “Tuesday Top 10” …was born!  Each Tuesday for the next 3 weeks, I’ll be sharing my…

    Fall Decor Home Tour – My Secret to Adding All the Fall Feels to Your Home!

    Hello sweet friends! Welcome to our Fall Blog Hop!! If you’re coming from Crystal and Cleats, welcome!! So, it’s finally FALL! The best season of all, if you ask me! It means pumpkins, sweaters, boots, scarves, crisp sunny days! Okay, well maybe that’s what it meant back when I lived in Georgia – now its more so an extended summer, but with pumpkins.  Sometimes, I’ll turn on the AC and light me up the fireplace and just pretend for a few minutes 😛 But, even if its still hot as all get out here in SoCal, that doesn’t mean the Fall decor falls by the wayside.  In fact, it’s the…

    Y’ALL.  It has been a hot minute since I’ve posted here.  I KNOW. And I’m so sorry! (And I’ve missed ya!)  But May be CRAY – am I right?!  I swear this month flew by.  The combination of finishing up the One Room Challenge, and then being EXHAUSTED from the aftermath of it all, plus my parents visiting last weekend really just made May fly.  But I am BACK, and while I haven’t quite had the time to get the backsplash tutorial up (coming soon, promise!), I do have a quick and easy DIY for ya today. When we were designing our kitchen for the ORC, I knew I wanted…
