First Home #1: First Splurges

So I am currently in the process of trying to get a house. The waiting is not fun... but I'll tell you what is fun. Finding furniture... aside from my college rooms I have decorated one apartment & the house we rent now. The truth is... I hate the interior decor. Absolutely hate it. When finding things to put in the house I focused more on price than what I liked... which ultimately led to a house filled with things I liked for about 2.5 milliseconds, which is totally pointless because while I may have saved money in the short run I wasted money in the long run because I have only used the things for a few months before giving the stuff to Good Will. So while decorating our first home I am not going to do this anymore. I know if I do this I will save money in the long run. Here are my first two big splurges. And even though I say big it's not really that big, but big for me. Baby steps first right? The chair was only $130 and the mirror was from Joss & Main and was on sale for $138 and after refreshing the page about 200 times in an hour I finally was able to get the last mirror available!!!!

I am pretty excited to get both of these in the mail! I have been eyeing ghost chairs for forever and knew I wanted one in my home office. I also loved this mirror. I love the shape and the girliness of it. It will also be in my home office. I have a vision and I hope it comes out as pretty as it is in my head. I know I want one striped accent wall in a dark almost black navy color, with the other walls being totally navy. White crown molding. A pretty chandelier. Shelves with the dark color in the back. A bold graphic print rug. Maybe trellis or chevron or scallops? Maybe a bright yellow? I want lots of framed wedding inspiration to create a gallery wall. And I am going to revamp our current dining room table and paint it black so that I have a large desk area. Cannot wait!

Anyway, come back often to see updates on our first home!

Happy Birthday & Sagittarius Inspired Home Decor

I love Joss & Main!
And I am loving their Sagittarius inspired sale going on now!
I love all the arrows, chevrons, and bold colors! 
Would be so adorable in my new house that we don't have yet...
That is a story for another day.
It all makes sense though to me now why I love bow & arrows so much...
Maybe it doesn't have as much to do with Katniss as I thought? 
Hahaha... anyway, today is my birthday and so I figured this was a perfect
home decor inspired post for me!

Friday Fancies #54: Birthday Girl

Today is my birthday! So I decided to make a birthday outfit for my 
Friday Fancies link-up with AV at Long Distance Loving
I loved this sequin skirt and obviously a clutch with a bow on it is perfect for any birthday girl! 
So I know I have been MIA from this blog lately...
That's because I'm over now blogging at Simply Savannah Events!
Since it's my birthday, you should do me a favor and like our Facebook page!

Friday Fancies #53: Black Friday

I can honestly say last night was the very first time I have ever braved Black Friday shopping. Personally, it's definitely not my thing. I don't like crowds.. and there is nothing that irritates me more than people bumping into me while I am shopping. I am a stroller... I like to look. And think. And be able to walk where I want... I did get yelled at for walking over the barrier to look at the TVS at Target and then when he told me I can't go over there I said ummm so I have to stand in line just to look? He said yeah basically.... I did however find a white strips, toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash set for $31 bucks at Target. I was all over that since I am a white strips addict. Good thing now I'll have white teeth for Christmas. :) Any of you get any good finds? I think next year I'll stay at home and get a good nights rest after getting a really full belly! 

Anyway, it's been way too long since I've participated in Friday Fancies!
Been blogging over at Simply Savannah Events, my wedding planning company's blog!
Come check it out here!
Anyway, this Friday Fancies is all about black...
And here are some things I'm loving lately :)

Anyway, hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!

Styled Love Shoot in a MARSH?!

Oh my gosh yesterday the boyfriend & I did something super special!
In about 20 minutes I styled a love shoot for us in the swamp with the super talented Alexis Sweet of Alexis Sweet Photography!!! 
Alexis is so easy to be around and makes you feel super comfortable...
Although Chris did point out that she had more pointers for me than for him so according to my boyfriend he is obviously more photogenic and goodlooking than me. :) 
Anyway, Alexis is so awesome she even gave us a little sneak peak last night! I was so in love!
And cannot wait to see the rest, but wanted to share them first!!!
I love how she was able to capture Winnie smiling too!!! 

Coming next a post on how to style a love shoot in 20 minutes for under $100.. haha it happened. :)
And I loved the outcome!!!
Almost as much as I love my boyfriend :) 
But not quite!
Have a great weekend ya'll!!!!
Today is my last wedding of the year at the Savannah Queen!!

This is such a big deal to me because Green Wedding Shoes is only my FAVORITE wedding blog there is!!! I look at it every day pretty much and rely on it heavily for some amazing wedding inspiration!!!!! When Layla and I started brainstorming ideas for a styled shoot, my main criteria was that I wanted to do something good enough to be featured on Green Wedding Shoes!!!! And it happened!!!!!!! It feels so good to achieve a goal that I have and I feel so truly blessed to have gotten this opportunity!!! I am so excited about it and I hope you will go check out the post on Green Wedding Shoes!!! Also, I hope you will follow Simply Savannah Events since I am mostly blogging over there now!

Fall Purses

So I have not disappeared... just been blogging over at Simply Savannah Events!
I'm trying to get to 600 likes on Facebook! Would love if you would like us here
I really hope that if you follow me here you will go follow me there since I'll mostly be blogging there from now on. Although, every once in awhile I might just have to update this blog as well! Like today for instance... I really wanted to do a blog post on the bags I am lusting after lately... especially since I am in the market for a new purse. I have had my Michael Kors bag for about 4 years now, definitely outdated eh? And I somehow got some paint on it. No good. SOOOOO... since I have now officially booked 3 weddings I decided it's time to treat myself! So I just might have to buy one of these... :)

I honestly don't even know...
I love them all...
Maybe most of all the one in the far right bottom corner...
I don't know though, we shall see!!!

I am kind of back... well I will try to get back into blogging! But now I have not one but two blogs!

So... I'm still here I promise...

Gosh I've sucked at blogging lately.
Wanna know why?
I am the proud new owner of the wedding planning company that I worked for.
Yup... as of last Monday.
SO I have been crazy busy trying to get the new website up...
Which is really hurting my blogging time...
But soon I will be back with a vengeance...
And will be probably sending you over to the new blog & website!
I really hope you all will check it out once I finally share it! :) 
It will obviously need some love too.
Anyway, until later here are 7 lucky things to make you smile!!!

Gosh all this stuff just makes me smile.
OH and those cheesecake scrumptious balls of fat are making my stomach growl.
And uhh is it weird that I love cactuses ?? 
Or uhh cacti??
Hmm.. anyway, I love them so much they make me smile??
Except for when I am at Ikea trying to figure out if one is fake or real & so I continously poke it until it finally hurts & I got prickles in real deep? I swear I went to college...
Anyway, tomorrow is going to be a good but exhausting day.
So errrr I will be back blog soon!!!!
Have a great weekend ya'll!!
