Since we live at the beach I tend not to like my house to be too beachy. But lately I have been drawn to some small natural beachy accents. I am really smitten with the mirror and fish chandelier.


If you love the Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay you have to try their Processco. My good friend Erin just told me about it and I immediately went to the store and bought some. It was $11.99 a bottle and delightful. The perfect amount of bubbles and not too sweet.


After Jill blogged about these I knew I had to try them. They are so tasty and at only 90 calories the perfect snack. Best part is my little man loves them too. I can’t decide which flavor I like better, the dark chocolate and peanut butter are equally fabulous!


How insane is this lamp? I absolutely love it and want it for my den! I also think it could be super fierce in a nursery.

I know I already listed my top 5 fall fashions but I think I need to add this dress to my list. It seems simple, but to me that is the perfection of it. You could dress it up with a great necklace and heels or wear flats for a daytime look. I love the rich purple color. Jewel tones are my favorite color palette for this fall.

    I just bought cupcake wine for my party Sat. night I saw the processco but skipped it because I didn't know of anyone who has tried it, I think I am going to go back and pick up a few bottles.

    We live at the beach too and I love simple, small little accents that mention the beach versus screaming to visitors that the beach is right around the corner. Haha. That light fixture is awesome…Love, love love.
