Home For The Holidays

This Montana resort home designed by Ken Fulk (and featured on the cover of the December issue of Elle Decor) is not what I'm typically drawn to. Dark, rustic interiors typically aren't my favorite. However, this warm holiday winter escape captured my heart. Typically, I'm a bit cynical when it comes to over the top styled magazine homes for the holidays. Garland around the bunk beds? Really? But, with a ten year old son who may or may not still believe in Santa...I'm ready to suspend reality and go for the fantasy just a little bit right now. How about you?

Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend we're going to go get our tree. I find the Holidays exhausting, so I'll try to keep my Grinchy whining to a minimum here...

Also, it's our first Christmas with a dog! Hoping the ornaments aren't too tempting for Cosmo. Although I have to admit it's fun to add him to the gift list - I couldn't resist this cute little chew toy for him!

Other fun finds this week include:

-This autumn salad is amazing! (made it twice already)

-Re-stocking my fuzzy sock drawer. (#lifeinthefastlane)

Style Stalking: Emily C. Butler

I'm a little shopped out, have eaten waay too many sugary carbs and it's only December 1st! I don't know about you...but I could use a little palette cleanse right about now. Enter the refreshingly simple and chic interiors of Emily C. Butler. A New York City based interior designer that I first "met" over on Instagram.

I adore each and every fabric and print Emily uses in her spaces. Never over done...always just right! Happy December!


Holiday Gift Guide: The Best Gifts For Teen GIrls

1  //  //  //  4  //  5  //  6  //  7  //  8  //  9  //  10

Between my own two daughters and two nieces to shop for, teen girls make up a large part of my gift list. This is fine with me, because these gift guides are my favorite ones to create and my favorite gifts to give! I get to channel my inner sixteen year old self and dream up these fun ideas. (Cause, like, whatever, gifts like these are totally dope...the goat)

PS: More than half these gifts are under $50! (savage;)

PPS: My fourteen year old daughter just told me about this cool spray on nail polish by Milk!

Home Tour: Fresh and Elegant Holiday Decor

Getting my house all decked out for the Holidays is one area that I always struggle with. So far, I've managed to order our Holiday cards and make a serious dent in our gift list.  This weekend,  we have plans to go buy our tree. Every year I hang up stockings on the mantle and decorate with the holiday cards we receive through out the season. I always pull out the sweet little Menorah my daughter made in pre-school. And, we have a small nutcracker collection on display as well. And that's it. I'm sure my kids would love it if I pulled out all the stops, but I find the whole process pretty daunting.

Which is why I'm so blown away when I see a chic house (like this one) dressed up so stylishly for the holidays! Spotted over at Style at Home and belonging to blogger Monika Hibbs- I'm tempted to try to deck the halls with a little more effort this year.
