I know I haven't blogged in a while, but some exciting things have been happening around here, hence my absence. Instagram has become my second blog of sorts as it's so much easier and less time consuming to share there. With that said, I've already spilled the beans there that Better Homes and Gardens is shooting our home for their Christmas issue! How exciting, right? The talented and really cool BHG stylists, Christina and Kim have actually been here since Saturday. Tomorrow I get to meet the amazing photographer, David A Land who will be photographing our home and our family!
I owe a BIG thank you to Nicole ofLive Laugh Decorate who told BHG editor, Sally Finder about my Christmas decor(i had no idea she was going to do that and will have to send her some bottles of Jamaican Stone Ginger Wine:-)). Sally then visited my blog to take a peek at my Christmas pics and subsequently sent me an email indicating that she and the team loved it all and like they say, the rest is history...
This approximately 584 square feet apartment is drenched in natural light, bathed in white but the mix of textures, accessories, and plants throughout make it far from boring.
I have that same orange pot; love it!
Yesterday, we got up to a high of 81. Unbelievable. Though we are back to cold temps today, I woke up to the birds chirping and can't help but feel optimistic about the approach of Spring. Have a lovely day everyone. xx
I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with the lovely people at Peacock Alleywho worked with me to choose the perfect bedding to enhance my sleep. I was sent different samples to choose from.
I ended up choosing their sateen Emma Collection in Coral. I fell in love with the color(of course) and the modern geometric diamond pattern that almost looks like polka dots. Also, I have allergies and I am very particular with the type of fabrics I come in contact with. Sateen sheets are a great choice for people with allergies as they are 100 percent cotton with a high thread count and a lustrous sheen. They are woven from combed, carded, or long-fiber cotton threads that are then mercerized, meaning they're soaked in lye and then in acid. This process not only strengthens the cotton fibers and makes them more durable, but also gives sateen sheets their signature sheen and helps them accept dye evenly.
Since then, I've been enjoying the sheets so much that I don't even want to get out of bed to have breakfast. Breakfast tastes better in bed on these sateen sheets; just don't spill anything on them!
Isn't that exciting? Value is almost $500 for this luxurious bedding. Directions for entering giveaway are below:
