Home Office Inspiration


We are currently in the process of finding our first home....key word...FINDING.  We definitely underestimated how long it would take us to find "the home".  However, we are trusting that our first little home is out there...even though I feel like I have seen EVERY home on the market in the areas we are looking to purchase.  What would we do without Zillow, Redfin, or Trulia?!?  It has seriously made the process much easier to find what we are looking for.  My husband and I each made a list of things we "have" to have in a home...and the things that would be "nice to have".  Needless to say, the hubs list is about 3 items long...and mine is about...well, more than 3 :)  My list includes 3 bedrooms, with one of those being my future home office.  I'll share later on about our business, but at the moment, it is becoming necessary that we have a centralized place for me to work.  SO, with the help of my small addiction to Pinterest, I have found so many beautiful office inspiration photos that I want to share with you today!  Would love to hear your feedback!

This beautiful office is from www.alamodemaven.com!  I love reading Shelli's blog everyday - she has such a beautiful home!  Check our her great blog!

 I LOVE the white desks in many of these images.  I want something light, bright, and girly!

I love the detail of this desk...this is definitely a statement piece...I think I love everything about this room.


Ikea shelving an Ikat desk chair...yes please!  They both add so much interest.   I also really love the industrial feel of this space, and how it still manages to be very feminine. 

This is just so glamorous!  Love it!

Once again, pops of color with more neutral furniture is the way to go in my book.  Cannot wait for an office to decorate of my own!


A Little Sparkle

I thought I would share a little sparkle with you all today.  I am loving Stella and Dot jewelry these days...I went to a trunk show at a friends house a little while back and picked up these two items! These were my first Stella and Dot purchases...loving rose gold right now!  



Happy Monday!



These are seriously addicting.  I have tweaked this recipe a bit, and love it!  So simple!

1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Milk
1 Banana
2 hand fulls of fresh organic spinach
1 peach 
5-6 strawberries
2 Tbs 0% Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tbs ground Flaxseed
1 Tbs Agave Nectar
5-6 Ice Cubes

Slice fruit, then place everything into a food processor or blender in that order.  Delicious!


Fresh Finds

Welcome to my new blog everyone!  Here's to a new year with new beginnings.  This blog will be a way to document my life as a newlywed, business owner, and lover of all things girly!  I intend to use this blog to share more about myself and connect with all of you.  Every morning I enjoy a hot cup of coffee with our golden retriever, Finnley, sitting next to me on the couch.  It is during this time that I love reading my daily blogs.  It is amazing how much I look forward to reading new posts from people that I now feel like I "know" a little bit :)  So, I figured I would begin a lifestyle blog of my own as life may get a bit more interesting for us!  

To begin my blogging journey, I thought I would share a few things in life that I am obsessed with at the moment...they are a random mix, a little like my life, but I hope you enjoy!

My girl, Kate never seems to disappoint! I love a little glamour in the small things.  My iphone feels like New Years Eve everyday!

I bought this last week, and I find that I bring this every where I go lately.  I'm trying to drink more water, and having this cute lil' thing around makes it much easier...I love the convenience and durability.

Flaxseed:  I am in love...for some reason I am just now learning about all of the health benefits and am using this in my green monster smoothies, muffins, cereals, and yogurt.  I use this brand:

Next is my new file cabinet from The Container Store...sounds boring, but this has been a life saver!  I love it because I have folders for everything I need and two large bins that pull out.  As a newer business owner, this has helped keep all our documents and files in a centralized place.  I plan on getting an identical one for our personal documents as soon as we move!  I am all about "zero clutter" these days and this will go perfectly in a closet in our office for easy access, yet out of sight!

My final fresh find is a gift I received for Christmas that I absolutely love.  I was a little skeptical until I actually used it...now I'm hooked!  The Clarisonic Mia is a great skin care tool that really leaves my skin feeling clean and glowing. 

Happy Thursday!
