amazon favorites for the home

February 26, 2019

I don’t know what it is, but I always love reading other blogger’s posts on their Amazon favorites so I thought it would be fun to put together a little wish list of sorts with some pretties I’ve been eyeing lately on there myself!  I always, always make it a point to shop small as…

loving lately at high street market / black friday

November 21, 2018

High Street Market is one of my favorite online home boutiques to shop for home accessories and gifts; there isn’t anything in their shop that wouldn’t look amazing or fit right in my own home (aka that I don’t absolutely LOVE) and I often find myself looking here first when I need a birthday, hostess or…

natural wonders

August 12, 2016

It’s 95 degrees outside with humidity hovering right around 90% and yet, every retailer I see is jamming their shop full of Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas decor – what. the. heck.  Every year, it seems to start earlier and earlier (and yet I don’t recall anyone selling summer goodies in February when we could…

June 9, 2016

(the day after daddy got home from his last deployment; baby girl wouldn’t let go of his finger for 3 days!) Father’s Day is next week and it’s one of my favorite holidays to shop for the hubby and my dad – birthdays and Christmas are one thing, but it’s so much fun to have…

8 things I can always score at HomeGoods + TJMaxx

May 9, 2016

Stops into HomeGoods and TJMaxx used to always be hit or miss for me.  While there are always some trendy gems to be found, it was usually my luck that if I went in looking for something in particular, I would come out empty-handed.  Over the last few years, though, I’ve found that there are…
