One word to describe the past week. Life-changing. We are currently across the world visiting the beautiful Holy Land (for the first time!) and I am on cloud 9. Just a few days ago, I finally announced some exciting news on my Instagram. The launch of Bless Box!! The ultimate subscription box experience.

Bless Box is more than just a box – it’s an experience.

There are thousands of subscription box services out there, so why did I decide to jump in? I knew if I was going into this subscription box world I needed to take my time, …

As many of you know, Stevie and I partnered up with West Elm this past spring to give our living room a little makeover. One of my favorite items that our talented friend Sara helped us pick out was a simple brass bar cart with glass shelving. At the time I didn’t give it much thought, but as the seasons change, I’ve found myself being able to dress it up! It’s fun and something I enjoy doing.

Just like an outfit, you have to pick a theme/vibe for your cart. Since it’s the holiday season, I wanted to transition my …

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! It’s not everyday you see a 5’2” girl walking the streets in wide leg pants. The truth is, being petite has always made it hard for me to shop for bottoms. If I saw these in a store I would have kept walking because I instantly would have assumed they weren’t for me. Funny story, I received these pants as a gift from GUESS and was seriously so surprised that they fit me perfectly when I tried them on for fun. Woo, woo!

I have a short torso so the only way for me …

Happy almost Thanksgiving! The hubby and I are currently in Austin, Texas enjoying some much needed quality time with his family.

I’m excited that this year I’ll get to introduce Stevie to some of my family’s traditions! Yep we’re heading to my mom’s house for Thanksgiving in Dallas on Thursday. Say what??? All yumminess aside, if someone asked me 3 years ago if Steve would ever get to experience …

My mouth is watering at the thought of Thanksgiving being just a week away on Thursday! This also means I need to start thinking about what I’m going to wear (#sazanprobs). This year, I definitely think I’ll go with a dress.

I found some the perfect holiday dresses …
