boring to bold

Ok, ok, you’ve heard enough from me on chevron print…. BUT I can’t help but share my latest DIY project! I have had an ikea rug in my kitchen forever, so boring! I knew I wanted color, but not something over-powering. When in doubt, choose chevron! The rug came out perfect {with a little from my mom}.

the look of leather

Finding the right boots, for the right price can be difficult. I tend to spend more on my boots then any other shoes I purchase. I came across these ASOS boots and they could not be more perfect. Made of leather, the perfect shade of tan and under $120! {not too mention ASOS has Free Shipping and Free Returns}

{ASOS Cleo Leather Boots $113.49}

furbish studios

I recently came across the perfect place for ALL types of gifts and accessories. Furbish Studios has put together a unique variety of merchandise and gifts of all kinds. The prices are right too! I included my favorite finds below!

{Mr. & Mrs. cocktail glass set $18}

{earrings $18}

{tray $22}

bold & bright

A good friend of mine accidentally ordered two of the same necklace from Forever21 and passed the additional one my way! I absolutely LOVE it, and it’s the perfect statement piece {that looks much more expensive then it really is}. Never under-estimate the Forever21 accessories department.

fall for the home

I cannot believe we are half way through October. Where does the time go? Fall is my favorite time of year and I could’t help but share some of the things I enjoy! Bring autumn into your home with the additions below.

everything dish

I have had this glass dish in a junk drawer forever. I’ve used it a few times it for a candle holder and also as a soap dish, but its been a pretty boring piece. I decided to give it a little face lift. I found a print online that I liked, printed it on card stock and used modge podge to adhere to the bottom.

she said yes

My sister got engaged this past weekend and I could not be more excited! I was in on the surprise a few days before and knew I wanted to make a photo prop for these first photos as an engaged couple! The prop was a perfect addition and also provided a great photo to send on to friends and family to share the exciting news!

think pink

Ralph Lauren has done an amazing job for breast cancer awareness. The Pink Pony has become a symbol for inspiration and support.  I have always been a fan of shopping for a cause, and Ralph Lauren offers great incentives. Through October 10 save 25% on all purchases and 10% of all proceeds with go towards the Pink Pony Fund.

{Mini Pink Pony, handbag $45}

scent of fall

Once October hits, and the first fall day has arrived, I immediately bring out the pumpkins and sweaters. Even though the weather is still fluctuating I love the scent of fall, the fresh air and the crisp leaves. On a recent trip to the mall the smell of Bath and Body Work lured me in {I can’t tell you how many years it’s been since I have been in one}. I came across the perfect fall candle {leaves}, and it has since created an amazing fall aroma throughout my entire home.
