Adventure Refresh || Stairs + Hallway Reveal

It is here ... I honestly can't even believe I finished.  My upstairs hall + stairwell is complete and looks so much better than I even thought it would. I honestly have no idea why I waited so long to make this happen but I am so thankful it is complete and looks so good.  I am just as happy as I can be.  I am so thankful Jewel of Jewel Interiors put together an amazing blog hop to get me motivated to make a change that I had wanted to get started on for so very long.  Why oh why do we wait for blog hops + company??


Enduring Southern Homes

I remember the day Eric Ross and I "met".  It was about four or so years ago while I was working on my kitchen.  I remember asking a question on my Instagram (and yes it was a silly one) about replacing white plantation blinds (not shutters) in my kitchen with bamboo blinds instead.  I already knew I was replacing them but I threw it out there for thoughts.  One comment will forever stick in my mind.  Eric Ross said to me "you and I both know those blinds need to go", I laughed out loud, followed him immediately and the relationship began.  It was an online only at first and then a year or so later we met in person at a conference and have been real life friends ever since.  Two things stand out to me when I think of Eric.  First, he has an incredible book of business that he adds to all the time with new clients.  He loves traditional design and adores layers, proper drapery and the details which he never skimps on.  The second thing I know to be true is his honesty.  He is brutally honest and has at times caught me off guard with his comments and responses, but he remains true to himself no matter what.  We laugh about it all the time and I have come to cherish that honesty as our friendship continues to grow.


12 Happies du Jour

Happy, happy Tuesday to you.  I am up super early fueled by extra coffee + a project deadline.  I have stuff literally stacked everywhere to be hung + all kinds of things stacked (carpet cleaning and painter for doors) to be finished by a certain time and its all sorts of crazy town. Can you tell I am caffeinated?!  I am so close to be finished with our upstairs hall which has now spilled into a stair well + a foyer.  I know, its crazy town and I am all in for every second of it! 


Oil Addict Party of 1

I remember seeing people using Young Living oils and just sort of dismissing it as a "new thing" and never diving any further into them.  As I look back now I realize how very silly I was.  The first time I chatted with someone about using essential oils it was using Frankincense for my husband and I immediately ordered a set of organic oils + a diffuser in August of last year.  I spoke to our oncologist who told me a lot of people love them and for good reasons so I began to research more, but it wasn't until December that Young Living was introduced to me.  I honestly need to send my friend Mandy flowers + a case of wine and most likely something more for opening up my eyes and truly changing our days and most likely our lives.


Adventure Refresh || Sponsors + Plan

Happy Thursday to you.  Why oh why is it when I am working on a project does the time seem to fly right by?  When you begin you think ... oh two weeks is more than enough to transform a hallway and then on week 1 you are all 😳 and sucking down the coffee like its a full time job.  It happens every single time I work on something.  I think it is more than enough time and then the reality hits of all the things that have to be done and then panic sets in. It always works out and this time is no different.  I am prepared and it will be fabulous and the stress will not even be something I remember when it is all done.  She says as she pours more coffee.

I have had this weeks posts complete for a few days but today was sitting empty with no inspiration on my part.  It was baffling to me that I couldn't pull together something for today until I woke up this morning and I could think of was peace. 


12 Happies du Jour

Oh happy Tuesday!  We are currently on winter break so the days are not scheduled and we have been enjoying some low key time.  I don't love the short summers, but I do love the week off with the kids every other month and the February break is one of my favorites!  💗  I have some fabulous things to share with you today ... some things to see, some to buy, and a few things I have on my mind!


Cape Cod In Sea Island

I may have mentioned once (or many times) that I love wearing August Morgan dresses.  There is just something about Kate's designs that make me feel so good about putting them on.  When I packed up for this year's Summit I knew I would be taking this darling dress and it most definitely did not disappoint. 💗


Weekly Wellness ... Healthy Hair

I have been so excited to share this post with you as it has truly changed my days and most definitely my hair.  As part of my work I read a lot of posts and am always researching something and one day last fall I stumbled onto an article about how to wash your hair.  I was a little skeptical since we all wash our hair, but after reading and trying their tips I realized I was seriously lacking in the washing department.  I was doing it all wrong leaving me with clean hair but needing to wash every few days.  What I am about to share with you seems simple but yet isn't and will most definitely also change your days ... and your hair.


Adventure Refresh

Happy Thursday to you!!  ❤ I am so very excited to share a project with you that begins today.  I have partnered with some fabulous bloggers as we all share a little project refresh in our homes.  Nothing too big but something we all felt needed some love and attention.   What I love about these amazing bloggers is that they all inspire me and they write incredible blogs, ones you should all read.  I am blown away by the level of talent and inspiration they bring and I am so very blessed to be among this incredibly creative group.


12 Happies du Jour

Hi lovies!!  I am full of energy this week which means you will see me bopping all over Stories with so many fun things to share. As I have told y'all, I love February and Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays so the extra energy is fulled by both of those amazing details.  I am wearing all the pink, all the hearts and filling my friends texts with love notes to show them how special they are to me!!  I hope to inspire you to do the same.  We all crave to hear we are loved, adored, wanted and treasured and this month is the best time to get started with sharing those details with the ones who mean the very most to us. 💗

So many great things to share today ... so let's do this!!


TSC Summit 2019

Happiest of Mondays to you!  I had such a fabulous week in Sea Island with The Southern C and now I am home filled with inspiration and a pile of business cards representing amazing new relationships.  This was, by far, the best Summit I have attended from the people there to the presenters to the incredible weather.  I just can't say enough things about it.  I am one happy girl filled with so much knowledge, armed with a long to do list and ready to take on the year. 🎉


Hazen + Barrington

What happens when two of your favorite brands work together to make something incredible?  Well ... you end up with something amazing and oh so fabulous, and just in time to celebrate the holiday of love!!  By now I hope you have spotted the new collaboration between Hazen & Co. + Barrington Gifts resulting in this darling little clutch and the precious trio of bracelets.  I just love the blush pink and animal print and how versatile the set is, and how it translates way beyond Valentines Day! 💗


Weekly Wellness ... Breaking Up With Plastic

Visiting Haiti last summer really opened my eyes to the extreme plastic issue in our country.  Riding in the city and seeing piles of trash on the side of the road.  Staying in our hotel and seeing the discarded water bottles floating in the ocean and piled under bushes really just broke me.  They do not have a garbage collection service of any kind and they have to discard the bottles the only way they know how.  A few of the homes we spotted had strung them up as doors and gates and to my surprise it was a fantastic idea.  It is not as though their doors + fences would be breaking down any time soon. As we drove the streets and visited the villages I could not shake the feeling that I had been so selfish and wasteful at home.  If I could only help them with their situation to make it somehow better.    When I came home we changed our mindset, and have kept it ever since! ❤


12 Happies Du Jour

Happy Tuesday!!  I am heading to Summit today and I am literally skipping on air I am so ready to have the inspiration flow thorough me!!  I have so many things packed to share with you while I am gone so make sure you are following along on Instagram and most definitely with Stories.  I will be over-gramming for sure!! The image above is from my first Summit and I will be missing Krystine this trip so much as I have never attended without her.  She will be home loving on that amazing new baby boy, so I completely understand.  Doesn't mean I won't be texting and face timing her like mad. I am rooming with my dear friend Emily McCarthy and we are staying at the King & Prince which is a first time for me.  I usually stay at a Sea Island property but we are switching it up for some new content!! 

Stay tuned ...


What I Pack In My Tote For Travel

A few trips back I discovered that the best way for me to pack for a trip is to pack a large tote as my carry on and to carry my purse separately.  I can pack my laptop easily, add in a book, a baseball hat or a scarf, some snacks and a water bottle + so much more.  It just makes so much sense. My favorite bag to take as a tote is my Louie Vuitton Neverfull (the large one) which truly holds so very much.  I can use Louie as a back up for my purse and pack it with so many things that are extra and don't fit in my purse but I need with me on a trip.  I purchased an organizer to fit inside and now packing for a trip has never been easier.


Happy February!!

Have I mentioned I love February?  Like, really love it??  I love every single day of it.  The weather is starting to warm just a little bit and I wear all the pink all the days and it just makes me happy.  I may have mentioned at some point that I do not like odd numbers.  They make me feel sort of off ... and the fact that February only has 28 days just seems so very perfect.  Yep, a little odd I know, but it is what it is.  ❤
