Pineapple Decor

Pineapples are having a huge moment in the decor world right now. So, when I naturally fell into it for kitchen decor, I didn't have to hunt around endlessly to find items I loved. With pineapples being the symbol of hospitality, these pieces make perfect items for the home. Also, if you're looking for a hostess or housewarming gift, look no further than the pineapple.

Hello Chattanooga

It's official! Tennessee is officially my second home.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to live in the mountains and experience a full four seasons—easy on the snow though. Toward the end of last year, and really after turning 30 in September, the itch for change kicked into high gear.

I was born and raised in Central Florida, went to college in Boca Raton, and leaving my home state and family was honestly one of the hardest decisions I could have ever made. Their support and love is the only thing that pushed me toward this new adventure.

It's amazing to see how God works, and makes the way for His will. In 30 years, I don't think I've ever seen His hand so strong in my life as I have these past few weeks. I know I'm in the right place. Yet, at the same time I feel like I'm being stretched—personally. I know that's part of the process and I know this is another time of growth for me.

Needless to say, I am so excited to be here. I can't wait to get some furniture for the living room area (I'm currently sitting on an air mattress, which is functioning as a daybed) and some bar stools for the kitchen island. Other than that, this little apartment of mine is coming together. The kitchen took on a pineapple theme, which is so perfect since the pineapple is the symbol of hospitality.

I can't wait to start sharing more home decor style posts as soon as this place starts coming together more. Until then, I'll probably be shifting back to beauty and lifestyle posts a bit more since my outfit photographer (my Momma) is in Florida. I am so excited to share this new city and second home with y'all!

Big Changes

New Years is always a big time for reflection. I try to take stalk of all the amazing things over the course of the previous year, what I want to do different in the upcoming year, and what would be absolutely necessary for me to be happy in the next year. I remember 2016 being an extremely hard year for me. I kept feeling God pushing me to find my way out of the nest, out of my comfort zone, and out of Florida. So, when I sat down to reflect, it felt completely different than other years.

The Perfect Galentine's Party

Whether you're in a relationship or not, Galentine's Day is a must. It's a judge-free zone to wear a nasty looking face mask that extracts crud from your pores, while sipping champagne and popping Dove Chocolates like they are M&Ms, with a never-ending chick-flick marathon on the television screen. Your BF isn't gonna go for any of that on your Valentine's date. So, what do you need for the perfect Galentine's Day date?

7 Instant Gratification Beauty Products

I'll be the first to admit, any time I try a new product that says it will soften my skin, make it look more radiant, or help reduce the small crows feet around my eyes (thanks Sunshine State), I want to see immediate results. I know that's not actually how it works, but sometimes I think it should. If you tell me something is going to plump the lines on my face, I want to see them actually plump up. For most products, instant gratification just isn't going to happen. These top seven products, however—I swear to you—you will see and feel immediate results. Some of these products I've purchased multiple times and others I've literally only used a once use sample size (that's the true test).
