Systems and Tools for Organizing

One of my favorite things is opening up my cupboard doors and loving what I see. I like seeing and knowing where all of my kitchen things are and having systems in place to keep it that way. How do I do this my friends? Tools. And Systems. Tools and systems. First lets talk about systems. When […]

Mocktails & Merriment

Just because I don’t drink alcohol, doesn’t mean I can’t have the majority of my beverages in a martini glass, right?! I am so obsessed with glassware and fancy looking drinks that I hosted a mocktail themed Christmas party. I wanted to share my love for fancy glassware and miniature cheesecakes with all of my girl friends for […]

Temple Square

I currently live about thirty minutes south of Salt Lake City, which makes a particular Christmas tradition very convenient: Visiting the lights at Temple Square. Temple Square is best known for the LDS Temple  as well as the rich history of the pioneers who founded Salt Lake City. I think its a beautiful place all year (its literally one of the cleanest cities ever!) […]

Christmas Card Wreath

Are you getting less Christmas cards sent to you in the mail and more e-cards via social media and email? ME TOO! With only a few Christmas cards here and a few more on the way (the month isn’t over yet), I wanted a festive way to display them without it looking too sparse.  I saw this […]

Clean Stainless Appliances with Microfiber & Water

I totally know that I am super late to the game, but have you guys heard of this stuff? The Norwex towels. They are microfiber clothes that have extremely fine strands of silver woven into them. The silver makes the microfiber antibacterial and antimicrobial, literally sanitizing and removing all of that yucky yuck (bacteria/germs) without spreading it around. […]

Rustic Wooden Table Runner

Have you ever decorated a space, stood back and thought: Wow, I made this. I rock.  I am loving the rustic glam look this season. I actually love it so much I feel like it could easily continue as part of my regular home decor though spring, or maybe even LONGER! I actually commissioned my husband to make […]

Christmas Bambi

This was my front yard a few weeks ago. It was literally all of my lanterns randomly scattered on the front porch, with the majority if them hidden behind the columns. I’m pretty sure my neighbors thought I was running a orphanage for lanterns. Just to clarify, I wasn’t. I finally assembled these adorable lantern hooks from Target […]

Christmas Soiree

I love parties and can pretty much use ANY excuse as a good reason to throw one. For this event I wanted to host a get-to-know-you style cookie exchange to meet more of the girls in my neighborhood. And because the whole neighborhood was invited, I wans’t sure how many would actually show. Hence the cookie exchange, this made it […]

DIY JOY Marquee

I recently went to a Do-It-Herself workshop at the Home Depot where we “learned” how to make these marquee signs. I say “learned” because I didn’t get to do anything besides listen to an unenthusiastic employee apologize while she informed us that This is more of a demonstration than a workshop. What the!? Whatever, I’m not letting […]

Tarte Cosmetics

I’d bet most new moms could totally relate to this: It felt like a huge part of myself was lost when I started staying home with my daughter. Because I wasn’t going out into the world as often, I didn’t need to get “ready” as often. I started dressing more comfortably and getting lash extensions to save […]
