This week I have went back to my roots a little and completely been mesmerized by french, rustic chic design! It's feminine, classy and full of character! Come, let's get inspired....

Mad About You Valentine Printable + More!

I'm excited to be teaming up with some other fabulous ladies to bring you a bunch of DIY Valentine's Day ideas! When you're giving a gift, it doesn't have to be expensive or fancy! I enjoy heartfelt gifts just as much as I do materialistic gifts, because I know they came from the heart 



Today I'm sharing a super simple, but absolutely adorable Valentine's gift! I was thrilled to have scored these "mad about you" lotions from Bath & Body works at their semi-annual sale for less than $3 per bottle! Right away I thought they would make the perfect little Valentine's gift, so I snagged a few! Shortly after, I was playing around with my watercolor and created a sweet printable that goes along perfectly with the lotion! And today I'm sharing that printable with you! You can download it and add it to any of your Valentine's gifts! I added mine to the lotion using bakers twine, and voila, a super adorable and sweet gift! Perfect for your close girlfriends, teachers, family members, close neighbors and more!

French Chic Mantle Design ♥

Come Valentine's Day I'm usually ready to decorate with pops red, but this year I wanted to opt for a more feminine, pink design! I've been having fun decorating with pink lately, it makes me feel extra girly! And my husband doesn't mind it, in moderation! 


While at my local grocery, I spotted these dainty pink carnations on clearance! I snagged two bunches for $1.99 each! I added them to my favorite ceramic pitcher; instant charm! I enjoy carnations just as much as a super expensive bloom. Although the head is smaller in size, they have many, beautiful layers that make them easy to love! I snipped the smaller ones and put them into a mercury glass votive. This mantle is simple, but beautiful. Sometimes I try to enjoy the simple things a little more!







Thank you for stopping by today, it was a real pleasure to have you!

Fab Pins of the Week!

Hello darling and happy Friday!! I'm thrilled to have you here! My son has a long weekend off from school due to teacher in-services and Martin Luther King Day Monday. I can't wait to spend the next few days soaking in extra family time! Do you have anything special planned for the weekend?


I'm still in home office mode! I have finally started getting the "bones" of the office in place. Now the fun part comes, finding the perfect decor! I created and shared my inspiration boards on Facebook and Instagram, but am still searching for decor to really fit in! As much as I want it done, I'm in no hurry! Are you ready to see what's inspired me this week?

Classic black and white

A few of my Winter must-haves!

Winter is such an important time of the year to stay moisturized! I get super dry during the cold months. Relying on great products to help repair and maintain my body is essential. Today I'm sharing some of my favorite products with you that are essential to my daily routine! 


I cannot stand for my lips to be dry! While at Target recently, I scored a multi-pack of Vaseline minis perfect to throw into your purse for on-the-go moistrizing. My favorite of the set was Vaseline Rosy Lips, it's a slight pink tint and perfect for the harsh Winter chill. I never used to moisturize my face, but as I'm getting older my skin is changing and I now find it necessary! Any good moisturizer with natural products is okay in my book! My hands specifically get extra dry during this season, so a good hand cream is critical! Aveda Hand Relief cream is amazing for dry hands, amazing! My all time favorite perfume is Clinique Happy! As many perfumes as I've tried throughout the years, this is my favorite! Pretty nails are always a must-have! I refuse to wear fake nails ever again, and I can't stand how regular nail polish chips. Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is the perfect solution! Keep your painted nails nearly perfect for about 2 weeks per application! 

So I want to know... What are your Winter must-haves?
