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

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.

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!

I've wanted a bar cart for a couple years now, but unfortunately we just didn't have the room in our old apartment!

So I got to designing, and the above shot is the finished nook :) I wanted to take you through my process of designing this lil space, as well as give you some tips for creating a fun drink zone of your own!
