Our First Home

Okay guys, this is it – what you’ve all been waiting for. Josh and I have spent exactly one month decorating, searching for furniture, moving pieces around our home and organizing. We’re finally happy with everything and we are ready to share some photos with you all! Beware — there are quite a few! I’ve also listed where I purchased things so you can snag some of my items for yourself if you’d like. Enjoy!

What I Want Thursday

As I’ve been working for about two months now, I’m realizing how important it is to have really versatile pieces that I can wear in a myriad of situations. It’s important to be able to wear something to work that I can also head to drinks in after a long day. Here are some pieces I’m currently coveting and some looks that are inspiring me!

Beauty Wants & Loves

I’ve never been huge into beauty products. To be honest, I grew up with blemish-free skin and my pale complexion mixed with some freckles here and there always meant I didn’t really have to put on a ton of makeup to feel good about myself. I typically dab some blush here and a swipe of mascara there and I’m out there door — a fact that I am eternally grateful for.

But that doesn’t mean I’m not obsessed with beauty products — I love lotions, potions and a little something that will alter my look all-together, like a dramatic red lip or great scent. Here are some beauty products that I’m loving right now!
