Little Martha Stewart

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10

We all know a Little Martha Stewart. She comes off as annoyingly perfect. She can cook, has an amazing sense of style, and is the HOSTESS with the MOSTESS. Sometimes you wonder if she could ever host or create anything subpar. Little Martha appreciates something thoughtful and unique. Give her a gift that is equally as perfect as she is. HAPPY SHOPPING!

Tis' the Season! I'm starting to geek out over all of the crafty things you can make to decorate your home for the HOLIDAYS. I'm also so excited about some of the festive collaborations that are in the works! HOLY DIY!

When it comes to tree skirts, I like them to have personality and flair, which can be hard to find! So, I figured, why not just make it myself? Given that I love all things Katie Kime, I thought an oyster pom pom skirt was appropriate and fitting. How adorable did this turn out?! I was dying when I saw it all come together.

Things you need:
- 1 yard of fabric. I used Katie Kime's oyster print fabric.
- White Pom Pom Trim
- Scissors
- Air-Erasable Marker
- Sewing Machine
- Ruler
- 12" circular pan lid
- 1.5" - 2" circular bottle

1. Fold your 1 yard of fabric in half (inside out). On the fold, use your air-erasable marker to trace around half of the 12" pan lid (6" diameter). Measure to the middle of the fold of the half circle and trace around half of your 1.5" - 2" bottle. This will be the hole for the tree.
2. Cut your shapes. You should now have a doughnut! Use your ruler to trace a straight line to the inner hole. Cut along the line. This will now allow for your skirt to easily wrap around the tree.
3. You are ready to sew! Place your pom pom trim flush against the fabric edge. Feel free to pin the trim to keep it in place. SEW it and you're done!

Little Miss Wanderlust

I am so ready for the holiday season to be here!! It is easily my favorite time of the year and I absolutely love finding that perfect gift for my family members and friends.  Wrapping presents is the best part! With the busy holiday schedules, it can be hard to find that perfect gift for a loved one. Therefore, every week I'm going to post gift guides that will be tailored towards the specific personalities in your life. Hopefully, theses gift guides will help make your holiday shopping experience a breeze! 


My first week is dedicated to that friend or family member that loves to travel. The Bric's Bellagio suitcase is definitely on my wishlist this Christmas; I just can't resist stylish travelware. My other favorite brands for weekender bags are Cuyana, Longchamp and Everlane.
 Polaroids have made a come-back lately with printed photos being such a novelty, this snap camera captures and prints vacation memories, #instantsatisfaction. Gray Malin's Beaches is the perfect coffee table book for your traveling gypsy, plus it's only $40! 

Happy Shopping!

Pillow Talk

Talk PILLOWS to me. Who doesn't love a good pillow?! They can add so much character to a room! If you are somewhat risk averse when it comes to incorporating bright and bold colors and patterns into your home style, testing the waters with some fun pillows is the way to go. At the end of the day, pillows are interchangeable and you can always swap out the cover with a new one if you get sick of it. EASY as pie! At least your aren't completely wallpapering an accent wall that you end up disliking.

For those of you bold ladies looking to add a little more STYLE SASS to your home vibe, I have included my  Top 10 pillow picks. You can thank me later. :)

1 - BANANA SQUAD. If you know me or have been following my blog, you know how obsessed I am with all things banana leaf. This pillow screams Dorothy Draper.

2 - OTAMI LOVER? I am.

3 - Meow. I actually own these pillows and decided to upholster my living room chair in this print. KITTY envy.

4 - Mellow Yellow. This pillow takes style courage.

5 - TASSEL KWEEEN. All I can say is wow. Showstopper.

6 - Chic zebra. Hypnotized by these bold lines.

7 - Oyster FREAK. A Katie Kime classic. I will forever adore this pattern.

8 - Seeing Spots and design inspiration.

9 - Camels on camels. YASSSSSSS.

10 - BEETLES. If I was ever creeped out by beetles, I have had a change in heart. This print is EVERYTHING.
