My Everyday Essentials

I wanted to round up some things that I use every day that I love.  It’s such a random list, but it’s truly stuff I use every single day. Lip Sleeping Mask I have mentioned this stuff before, but it’s just SO good.  I REALLY look forward to putting it on when I get into bed and it makes my lips so soft. Oral B Pro 1000 Electric Toothbrush Y’all.  Why did no one tell me how awesome an electric toothbrush is?!  If I accidentally pick up my old toothbrush, I’m like…what is this archaic contraption???  After using an electric toothbrush it feels like a regular toothbrush isn’t even doing anything.  This toothbrush got great reviews and I have loved […]

Best Coffee Table Books

I love a coffee table book.  Anyone else??  They are so nice to give as a gift and make a great decorating tool around the house.  I’m not into a lot of clutter, but I have always like the look of a stack of books, and I love that they are actually functional!  I have a bunch, so I wanted to share my favorites.  Click on any of the images to shop.       I have both Domino books.  They are the BEST decorating books and will give you so much inspiration.  They are also gorgeous, so perfect to stack on your coffee table.     Both of these books were gifts, perfect for someone who loves to travel!

Let Me Count The Ways…

Happy Valentine’s Day!!  Truthfully, Valentine’s ain’t my thang, what about y’all??  I feel like it puts pressure on couples and makes singles feel bad.  Lance and I have never done anything for Valentine’s Day and the tradition continues this year considering he’s in DC for work.  I asked him on Tuesday if he knew tomorrow was Valentine’s Day and he said no, he thought it was the 8th.  So there you go.
