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.

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.

I was asked by Carusele to participate in this campaign, sponsored by Bed Bath & Beyond. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

I love giving our home a subtle refresh with each change of seasons. It's the perfect way to bring new life into a space, and it always gets me excited for the upcoming months. This will be our first Christmas in the new house and even though it's not even Thanksgiving yet I'm already looking forward to winter nights snuggled up on our couch with the Christmas tree lights twinkling. I've partnered with UGG to show you how to create gorge cozy vibes in your casa with pieces from their Home Collection at Bed Bath & Beyond.

I love learning and experiencing new things, and LA is a great place for workshops. I’ve learned how to make candles, clay wall hangings, meditate, and make the perfect cup of pour over coffee! Over the weekend Eddie and I had the pleasure of taking a Concrete Geometric Workshop - we learned techniques for working with concrete and color to create gorge planters. It was such a blast and the Concrete Geometric studio is super gorge. I wanted to share with you some pics from the day, and what I created. Makers gonna make!! Keep scrollin for all the fun :)

The latest nook we’ve attacked in the hobbit house is our TV wall! It’s been pretty sad looking since we moved in, and was in desperate need of some good vibes styling.

I wanted to share with you some tips on beautifying your own TV wall if you’ve been feeling blah about your current sitch, like I was!

7 Years

7 Years

Oh how I lob my curly head bb. Eddie and I are celebrating 7 years together today! Which is pretty cray when I really think about it. In some ways it feels like it’s been even longer than that - we’ve grown into adults together, and it’s hard to imagine there was a time before we were in each others lives. I’ve wrote about how we met before, and it always makes me laugh thinking back on it. Thank goodness for that dirty bar, and also vodka kakaka. I wanted to share with you some photos we took in Laguna Beach with the v v talented photographer Alex Mari. We had a blast running around in the sand and waves as the sun set. I also wanted to share with you my views on things like marriage, partnerships, and going the non-traditional route. Keep scrolling for my thoughts!
