Did you see my first round of clues yesterday to unlock the first key to my secret project? If you followed along, it is time to reveal the word. The word was dawn. Dawn means the first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise. The beginning of a phenomenon or period of time, especially one considered favorable.

New Zealand was such a dream. Like truly one of our favorite family trips to date!!! When I was almost done with our itinerary I had asked followers to share recommendations so I compiled all the most recommended things to do and see below. Also in this post I will be sharing  also my travel itinerary. The thing is, I adjusted the first half to what we would have done differently – so our time in the North island is altered a bit and I added on a couple days. The time on the South Island is our EXACT itinerary. You could of course adjust and spend an extra day here or there and take away time somewhere else or skip a spot all together. A couple things I really wish we had time for in South Island were Milford Sounds and Abel Tasman! Hope you enjoy!

There is something so exciting about holiday hair. As the holidays approach, it is the perfect time to get creative with your hairstyles. Why not add some sparkle or color with different hair accessories? I am loving these clips and this scrunchie I used, they are so fun. I wanted to show how you can use the same hair accessories but accomplish completely different styles with them. I posted some of these images recently on my instagram. What style do you like most, the bun, half up

I showed you guys this UNBOUND Cordless Auto Curler from Conair the other day when I was on my way to church and wanted to show you a full tutorial on here with photos! It is a cordless auto curler that you charge and can take with you to curl your hair anytime, anywhere. It’s so easy to use – just place a 1-inch section of hair into the ceramic curl chamber, then press the button. This automatically draws your hair in and heats from all sides. Just wait for the beep, release and repeat to reveal the most perfect curls or waves. The device has anti tangle protection so you can do it knowing your hair won’t get tangled!

I really really love the quote “we don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly, we need millions of people doing it imperfectly.” I think we can all make some easy, small sustainable changes within our home and even if we all became 10% better it would make such a big difference. And 10% might lead to 20% and so on. It is hard to make new habits as an adult so I think one of the best things we can do is to teach our kids the importance of making these small changes.

The blog has been somewhat neglected this year. You’ll soon find out why – I have just been super busy with other projects but it does make me sad that the blog has gotten ignored because this is what started it all and it has always felt like my journal. This even felt weird to sit down and write a blog post because it has been a while. We took these pictures yesterday to show you guys our home office. I love this space sooo much I felt like I had to share all of the photos on here too. I got the bulk of the office pieces but even with 90% of it done I felt like there was just this unfinished feel like I needed something on the walls. I reached out to Jenny Komenda, a local interior designer and businesswoman to see if she would want to collab!

So excited to share my closet with you today!!!! I feel like it is very me so its a space I love to be in when it is clean ha ha, which we all know how closets get so yeah it doesn’t always look like this! Often there are clothes piled on that couch. I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces and a bit about the space so keep reading to hear more about that. But I do want to share some of the overall details before I get into all that! I collaborated with Classy Closets for my closet – I had quite a few people recommend them so I reached out to them and they were soooo wonderful to work with. In building a home you really realize how hard some companies can be to work with but they were super on top of everything.

We took these pictures for a Boll and Branch campaign we did and I wanted to share them on here too! This is our guest room – I have since added some more to the room – a little console from Target on the other end with some art on it but I don’t have those pictured yet! It has been so nice to have a guest room – in the past we have always had guests on a blow up mattress lol so this is a definite upgrade. I wanted to keep the room pretty clean and simple so that is exactly what it is. We have a bench at the foot of the bed for guests to put a suitcase on and then we have a little bathroom attached and a closet too. Which has actually become some of our Christmas decor storage haha.
