London – Week 2

I can’t believe it is time to say farewell to London.  In the last week and a half we managed to cover a fair amount of ground with visits to historic sites (St. Paul’s, Buckingham Palace), musicals (The Lion King, The Book of Mormon), centuries “olde” pubs (Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, the Black Friar, the Guinea), outdoor markets (Columbia Road Flower Market, Old Spitalfields), eclectic restaurants and

London – Week 1

I can’t believe it has already been a week since we arrived in London!  My husband is here for work, and I decided to join him, and in total we will be spending about 18 days in this great city!  While the week has flown by, it also seems like we have been here for much longer, as we are really trying to fit in

Holiday Home Tour

Hi there, and welcome to a tour of how I decked out our home for the holiday season! Christmas is my favorite holiday and I just couldn’t wait to get the decor up and start blasting all of my Christmas playlists on repeat.  I wish I could say I posses the talent of elegantly adding subtle Christmas touches to my existing decor, but I don’t.

Fall Home Tour

Halloween is over and the skeletons and spiders are safely packed away, but in our house it is still Fall and the pumpkins and mums will stay out until Thanksgiving!  Therefore today I am sharing a little Fall home tour, before it is officially too late (because I will admit, I, like most of you, am eager for Christmas!).  I started adding Fall decor early

Halloween Home Tour

I must admit I love Halloween, and considering Halloween is tomorrow (and that I am a perpetual procrastinator) I figured I would finally share some of the little ways I added Halloween decor to our home.The front porch was all ready for Fall with my pumpkin obsession going strong and my mums finally blooming orange, so I just added a few little fun details! Like these

A First Birthday Party – Bird Theme

We recently celebrated my niece’s first birthday with a backyard bird-themed party!  When my sister and her husband were trying to come up with a fun theme they decided on birds, because Addison just loves them!  When you say “Addie do you see the birdy?” she will look around curiously to find the pretty winged creatures, and then excitedly point and squeal when they fly.  It is pretty

A Christmas Tablescape

I have always loved beautiful tablescapes, for any occasion, but especially the holidays! While I am still a novice at the art of creating a lovely table, in the two short months that we have lived in our new home I have already attempted a few.  The first was for Thanksgiving, and now for Christmas! Let me start by saying that our home is unique

DIY Hot Chocolate Bar

One of my all time favorite treats for the holidays is hot chocolate.  I drink it pretty much every night during the Christmas season.  And what I love even more than plain old hot chocolate is a big hot cup with all the fixings!  Having a hot cocoa station is also a fun option for holiday parties and movie night gatherings!  This is why for

A Little Golden Book Baby Shower

This Little Golden Book Baby Shower belongs to: Holly Zito! We recently threw a children’s book themed baby shower for my sister with lots of Little Golden Book decorations, and I am so excited to show you some of the details from this fun day!  My mother and I chose this theme because my sister loves children’s books, it is a gender neutral theme, and lastly because Little

Room Makeover – Playful Guest Bedroom/ Kid’s Room

Hi everyone! It has been a little while since my last post and in the meantime my blog has had a little work done 😉 and I am very excited about its new look! And speaking of new looks I recently gave a little makeover to an unused room in my parent’s house!  My mother decided that she needed another usable guest room in their home, one
