lots of lovely » fashion. lifestyle. home.

I’m going to just go out on a limb and say that I’ve probably put a feminine touch on every room in our home but really and truly, I’ve tried SO hard to keep it somewhat gender neutral. My part of our office is where I’ve been able to have the ultimate feminine flair. I say my part of our office because my hubby and I are splitting the room in half and one side is for his desk/office area and the other side is mine. Right now, our dog Penny takes up his side of the office as he has yet to complete it so in the meantime, I have put my stamp on the space. Enjoy!











(desk: hubby made, plans found here; baskets, lamp, gold candle, orchid, gold scissors, gold stapler, typography frames, gold and silver push pins: Target; white vase: Walmart; picture frame, cork board, stacked books: Marshall’s; chair: HomeGoods; typography prints: Stephanie Sterjovski; “H” mug: Anthropologie)

If you’ve followed me on Instagram, Pinterest, or just here at the blog, you’ve probably wondered something along the lines of “what does this girl do for a living?”…She posts pictures of hair stuff and then house stuff and then more hair stuff. And don’t worry, it’s a question I get asked often especially considering the amount of weekly HomeGoods runs I’m able to make.

I am a specialty hairstylist (meaning I don’t work in a salon doing cuts and color) for a company called Sunkissed and Made Up. We do airbrush makeup and hair (that’s my part!) for weddings/special events/portrait sessions/proms/etc…all of which primarily fall on the weekends, hence the home decorating weekly hobby. If you need to get all dolled up, we’re your team (shameless plug). It’s truly the absolute dream job and I feel blessed beyond measure to be able to do what I love. We recently worked with the fabulous Katie Lamb on a promo video for the company and she could not have captured the spirit and heart of our company any better. (Shameless plug #2: if you have a blog, an etsy shop, or a small company that could benefit from a short promo video, Katie’s the only choice. She’s truly FANTASTIC). So, here is a peek into a day in my life doing what I am so passionate about. Enjoy!

P.S. Make sure to turn the volume up on this one, the song is way cute!

Gift-giving is definitely my love language for others. Not just the gift itself, but the presentation of the gift is important to me as well. My brother in law’s girlfriend is headed off to college for the first time in a couple of days and I thought it would be neat to just give her a few little goodies to wish her good luck as she starts this new adventure. I had bought this absolutely perfect gold striped box while on my California trip and came up with the idea to pack it full of truly “little” items that she could use off at school. I’ll list below what everything is and where it was purchased. Enjoy!

1. Gold striped box: Urbanic in California

2. “HOORAY!” card: Rifle Paper Co from Paper Source

3. Printed paper flags: Francesca’s boutique (who says school supplies cant be stylish?)

4. Poopouri bathroom spray: Francesca’s boutique (this stuff works and is perfect for close living quarters!)

5. Gold polka dot notebook: Kate Spade from Paper Source

6. Black and white polka dot luggage tag: Kate Spade from Adelaide’s boutique (for all of those spur of the moment weekend trips you take in college!)

7. Lollia hand cream in WISH: Adelaide’s boutique (this stuff is amazing if you haven’t ever tried it!)
