Family is truly a treasure!
There are moments when I barely believe how incredibly blessed I am to have these two in my life. We recently went out in coordinating outfits (yes, we are that cheesy family)! Miss Cupcake wore a darling Nautica Tulle Dress with Flocked Dots.  She loved twirling in this little dress and looked like a princess!  My incredibly handsome hubby wore a Goodthreads slim-fit chambray shirt and cable knit sweater.  

My dress was from eShakti.  This fun and affordable website offers both style and fit customization from women from sizes 0 to 36.  They truly have the perfect dress for everyone.   All dresses on the website can be easily customized at no extra charge to meet your preferences.  I recently wore this black and red dress with delicate embroidery.  The sleeve and hem length were customized.  I added a Jane Stone statement necklace for a fun pop of color.







Little Box Signs "HOME"


The moment I laid eyes on this darling "HOME" sign from Little Box Signs I knew it needed a place in my living room.  I have been striving to create a cozy and inviting space for my family and friends to gather, and I loved this simple piece.  This quality distressed wooden sign is unique and perfect for the slow process of transforming to modern farmhouse decor in my home.  The green vine "O" is the finishing touch that makes this sign unique and rustic.

Little Box Signs offers the most adorable hand painted wooden signs.  I truly adore everything in this shop.  These signs are a gorgeous and affordable way to create a cozy and personalized atmosphere in any home.



I placed this sign above my DIY Multipanel Mirror and Convenience Concepts French Country Hall Table.  This little entry table is adorable, and is the perfect size for the small space that I have in my living room.  Each season/holiday Miss Cupcake and I enjoy changing the decor.  The large basket from Target fit perfectly on the bottom.


With the arrival of spring quickly approaching I wanted to incorporate cotton stems into my decor.  I had seen these on Fixer Upper and began looking for the perfect cotton stems.  After weeks of searching, I finally found these lovelies at Kirkland's for $7.99 per stem!  I may or may not have done a happy dance on the way back to the car.  I placed them in a vase/watering can that I found at Target a few months back.




Clean Dezign Canister Set




Remember the perfect bread box that I found a few months back?  It needed to be small enough to keep on my rather limited counter space and large enough to be functional.  The moment I spotted this Clean Dezign Bread Box I knew it was what I wanted.  I was beyond excited when I noticed the matching three piece Clean Dezign Bamboo Fiber Kitchen Canister set.  Just like the bread box, these canisters are made out of a unique material called BAMBOO FIBER which is hard, durable, light weight and eco friendly.



I love the simple, clean appearance of these canisters on my kitchen counter.  I ended up using the largest canister to hold my wooden utensils.  The other canisters hold nuts and other snacks.  The airtight seal keeps the food inside fresh.  These Bamboo Fiber Kitchen Canisters are so perfect for storage that I plan to purchase an additional set for inside the cupboard.

"Home: Wherever I am with you."



I feel incredibly blessed to have spent another fabulous year with Miss Cupcake and my dear hubby. Being together is truly what makes our little house feel like a home.  This gorgeous canvas from Z Create Design states it perfectly:  "Home: Wherever I am with you."  Sometimes home is not a place, but the people you share your life with.  This definition of home adds a vintage and minimalist touch to our home.  It fits in perfect with our modern coastal farmhouse decor.  This lovely 24" X 16" piece is printed on museum quality artist's canvas and finished with a rustic wooden frame.  It is simply stunning!


A few months ago I added these romantic "Mr & Mrs" wall letters from ZCreateDesign to our master bedroom.  They fit perfectly with minimalist decor.  We hung these gorgeous letters over our bed, but they are versatile enough to look fabulous anywhere!  These are so classic and give our room a cozy and personalized feel.  If you are planning a wedding or just want extra special decor for you home ZCreateDesign is truly your one-stop shop.  They have DIY options for almost everything in their store!









What I Wore || Little Red Holiday Dress



This little red dress from Me&City is perfect for holiday parties or any day when you want to add a fun pop of color.  The slim fitted top and bubble skirt make this dress unique and flattering.  The moment I put this dress on I felt like it was tailored especially for me.  It fit perfectly!  I love the high round neckline and the exposed back zipper.  The 3/4 length sleeves make this dress practical all year long.  It can be worn alone in the warmer months or paired with tights in the cooler months.  I plan to wear this for Christmas, Valentine's Day, and many more occasions.  


For the winter months or cool evenings, this classy dress can also be layered with a jacket.  I recently wore it with an adorable Me&City embellished bomber jacket.  This jacket is incredibly soft and warm.  The rivet detailing along the trendy standing collar and convenient front pockets make this a fun and versatile addition to any wardrobe.  I know I will be wearing this with my dresses, jeans, and everything in between.  It goes with everything!


This was my first experience with Me&City apparel, and I was quite impressed with the quality of this dress and jacket.  I will certainly be purchasing from this brand again in the future.  









What I love most about the holiday season is choosing the perfect gifts for the special people in my life. Gifts that make the home a bit more comfortable and functional my favorite to give and receive.  This ultimate kitchen starter set from Vremi contains 6 nonstick pots and pans and 5 nonstick cooking utensils.  It is available in a traditional black or a fun pop of colors.  This Vremi cookware set is an ideal Christmas gift for anyone who enjoys cooking.



Nothing makes it feel more like the holidays than baking.  Miss Cupcake and I have been whipping up cookies, fudge, and (of course) cupcakes!  This Vremi 15 piece mixing bowl set makes it easy for us to mix, measure, and create delicious  Christmas treats!  I love the high quality of this set.  Miss Cupcake adores the bright colors.  


This Vremi cookware set is an ideal Christmas gift for anyone who enjoys cooking. The professional 10 piece knife set from Vremi contains 5 cooking and carving knives in fun colors.  The precision blades are made from finely sharpened edges in a high quality stainless steel.  They are lightweight with comfortable handles that are easy to grip.  The protective covers make these a bit safer when cooking with my four year old co-chef.  Everyday chefs will be thrilled with this set!



We love smoothies at our house!  Dear hubby makes a green smoothie every day, and I have been joining in as well.  Eating heathy during the holidays can be difficult, but sneaking in a few extra fruits and veggies is easy with this Vremi  professional blender.  I have had many blenders, but this is by far the best one I have ever owned.  This is a simply amazing heavy duty blender that anyone will appreciate receiving this Christmas.






Miss Cupcake and I have been busy decorating our little home for the holidays.  Bright lights, glistening glitter, and twinkling stars are abundant, but nothing brings my heart more joy than seeing the wonder of the season through the eyes of a child.  It's beginning to look and smell a lot like Christmas with this fresh Rustic Warmth Centerpiece from Lynch Creek Wreaths.  Last year we decorated with a gorgeous wreath from Lynch Creek Wreaths which received oodles of compliments from our guests.  

The Rustic Warmth Centerpiece is perfect for our living room entry table.   This one-of-a-kind seasonal centerpiece welcomes our friends and family with the inviting scent of pine.  The shimmery burlap bows, pillar candle, and glass chimney make this centerpiece a holiday classic.  We have never been anything less than thrilled with Lynch Creek Wreaths products, and this lovely centerpiece is so exception!  

Christmas is time for sharing joy with others.  Thus, I would love to offer one lucky winner a fresh Rustic Warmth Centerpiece to adorn their home this holiday.
