Bronze & Blooms

Bronze & Blooms

I can’t get enough of this bronze shade lately! It’s so earthy and gorge, don’t you think? I always feel good wearing this color, I just love how it pops. While Eddie and I were visiting Vista we took some photos at our Airbnb wearing my new fave dress by The Odells in this shade. Funny story - we actually got in a bit of a bicycle accident the day before these pics were taken, so I was limping around with a swollen knee and scrapes in between shots bahaha. Pretty pitiful, but funny in hindsight - and the scenery was too gorge not to capture! :)

Glamping Eco Tent in Vista, CA

Glamping Eco Tent in Vista, CA

It’s tradition for Eddie and I to go on a little getaway around Christmas. It serves as a nice escape from the Los Angeles holiday craze, and doubles as a birthday trip for moi (I’m a Christmas eve bb!). Last year we went to Borrego Springs, and the year before we went to Temecula. This year, we headed to Vista in San Diego County, where I booked us a stay at the most darling Eco Tent Airbnb.

Floral Christmas Tree

Floral Christmas Tree

Our first Christmas in the new house! I’ve been excited to celebrate in our lil Hobbit House all year, and I’ve really been looking forward to having a Christmas tree in the living room. However, I was a little nervous about how we’d make it fit with all our furniture. I also knew I wanted to incorporate florals into the tree, but wanted it to be subtle and easy to decorate - while still fitting in with our current decor. Cue this fab White Rose and Calla Lily Garland. Faux florals already arranged so all I have to do is throw a few on the tree? Yes please! Easy peasy and reusable for future years. I purchased 4 of them and in hindsight, could have actually used 5 or 6 for maximum impact, but I still love how they look! I bought them planning on incorporating our holiday ornaments into the tree as well, but when I sent Eddie into our garage to find them, he came back empty handed. Haaaaa! Oh, Eddie. I didn’t have the energy to go hunting through all the boxes we have in there myself, and I actually really like the simplicity of the garlands alone with the tree lights - so this year’s tree is remaining ornament-less.

2018 Holiday Gift Guide

2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I just love gift-giving. In a way it’s a bit selfish of me, because it enables me to do some major shopping minus the guilt that usually comes with buying goodies for myself. No guilt here when it comes to givin prezzies! I had so much fun putting together each of these lil gift guides for the special people on your list. I was really picky with it and only chose things that I would want for myself (kekeke), or already am/would purchase for my family and friends. Hope you enjoy and maybe find some treasures you hadn’t thought to gift before! Happy shopping, bb’s.

How To Style a Fun Floor-Seated Friendsgiving

How To Style a Fun Floor-Seated Friendsgiving

A lot of people think that because they live in a small apartment or house, they can’t entertain more than a couple guests at a time. For many small space inhabitants, dinner parties are seemingly out of the question - not enough room at the dining table, if you have a dining table at all. For those of you who’ve been following along here on B&B for a while, you know being dining-roomless was the case for me up until this year. But I’m here to tell you, don’t let small space livin’ discourage you from hosting fab get-togethers! I’m sharing an easy way to host a Friendsgiving or any type of dinner party, whether you have a dining room or not. The answer? Floor seating.
