Instagram. I swear it’s the land of serendipity. Late last year I stumbled upon the Josh Young Design House gallery. Little did I know I was about to fall into one of the most wonderful collaborations I’ve worked on to date. Josh emailed me shortly after I pressed follow on his Insta account. Ummm, hello amazing artist who’s been featured in Vogue, GQ, Domino AND Apartment Therapy! Why on earth are you emailing little old me? My heart pretty much skipped like 57 beats. Please be something awesome! Please be something awesome! Please be something awesome!

A Wall You’ve Never Seen Until Today — Meet The Frame

This post is sponsored by Samsung.

Confession — there’s a wall in my home you never see. The dreaded tv wall. A big black box eyesore that every home decor enthusiast tries to hide. Most people say, just deal with it, and I get it. That’s exactly what I’ve done. It’s a part of life. Almost everyone has a tv, and in my home, there’s no living without it. Function over form accepted — that is until now — meet The Frame TV by Samsung.

Get Your Home Holiday Party Ready

This post is sponsored by Sengled.

My neighborhood has a local moms group. Now at first thought that may not sound super awesome…or maybe it does? But it may conjure up thoughts of kids running around, babies crying, and talks of what preschool is the best. Ya no, this moms group is completely different. It’s our monthly excuse to go out at 7pm, sans children, drink wine, wear makeup, and feel non-mom-ish. Sometimes I even wear fancy shoes! Each month has a different theme at a different house. This month I’m hosting the Christmas party, and that means I’ve gotta get this house holiday party ready.

Get your home holiday party ready!

Since we are still fairly new to the neighborhood, only a couple neighbors have visited. The pressure is on…even though I know, it shouldn’t feel that way, yadda, yadda, ya…deep down it’s just the way I’m wired. I can’t help it. It’s not really a keeping up with the Jones’ per se, but more my perfectionism personality. It’s about creating ambience and wanting my guests to enjoy themselves, feel comfortable, and remember the time they spent at my home as enjoyable. So how will I avoid feeling frazzled for this soirée? I start by making a to-do list to get this home holiday party ready!

#ReinventGiving with HP

This post is sponsored by HP.

Between the move and the basement flood last year, there was an act of kindness I missed. It slipped through the cracks and because of that, I’m going to try and make it bigger and better this time around. Every year my family adopts a family for the holidays. It’s something that I normally don’t talk about, but when HP asked me if I’d like to participate in their #ReinventGiving campaign, I knew this was a perfect opportunity for my bigger and better.
