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.

Remember butterfly clips from when we were younger?! Or maybe you are younger and don’t remember haha but let me fill you in.. we had these butterfly clips that were attached to springs so the wings could bounce.. super cool right lol. I never thought the day would come but here I am with butterfly clips!  These were gifted to me by Jennifer Behr – I have purchased a few of her pieces in the past! All of her pieces are absolutely stunning. Nothing better than braids and butterflies.

Geez I have been so MIA here on the blog! I can’t wait to share why 🙂 but I also wanted to share some pictures from our California trip! Frankie is 5 months today and it’s crazy how fast time is going. Can you believe that 5 months have flown by?! We are headed to California again today for my nieces farewell – she is going on an LDS mission to Chile so everyone is headed out to celebrate before she leaves! After our cali trip, we are home until October which will be sooo nice. Unless something work related pops up which could very well happen too, but I am looking forward to just having our normal routine at home for a while. This will be our new reality with Atticus in school! We always knew the day would come when he would start school and we wouldn’t be able to travel quite as much, so we did a ton of traveling while he was young and we got a lot of our travel bug out.

I feel like the pearl accessories trend came on so strong and fast ha but I am all for it and definitely hopped on board and bought a few new pearl accessories including this hair clip. These pics were from maybe a couple months ago right after I had cut my hair and looking at these pictures now its crazy how much my hair has grown since then! We are in Idaho right now just soaking up summer 🙂 hope you’re having a good day!

A couple weeks ago we had Frankie’s blessing at church! David gave a really beautiful blessing and he said she was smiling up at him during it 🙂 she is such a special girl and it was so fun to have a day to celebrate her! There were a lot of special things said in the blessing but a couple that stood out were that she will always remember that her family is what is most important and that she will always remember she is a daughter of God. We had family over for brunch afterwards and it was deeeelicious! I didn’t end up getting any pictures of the spread we had but it was so yummy. Frankie wore the same dress Rosie wore on her blessing day! Her cousins, June and Blaire, also wore it on theirs 🙂 hopefully it will get passed around and down throughout the years.

Here are some pics we took at the Flower Fields in Carlsbad!! I love going there during springtime, it is so beautiful and there is much to do for the kiddos. They had little scavenger hunts, a playground, food, and other fun things for kids to do. If you’re ever in that area during spring time definitely go! You can also see our family trip to see the super bloom here.
