Tis the Season

Guest Editor, Maghan Sisk

Red Plaid 1

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! In honor of the holidays we are sharing two festive outfits. These two outfits are perfect for holiday events coming up and even Christmas Day itself. You could easily pair each one with tights for the colder weather ahead.

Addie adored her plaid dress and thought she was such a grown up with her very own scarf. I am absolutely loving plaid and leopard together these days and these flats are to die for! As for me, I am head over heels over this skirt! It is longer which I love and the see through panels step it up a notch. With this being a holiday post, of course, I had to wear red! To match Addie I wore leopard heels too.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Make-Up Must Haves

brittanyhayes-4

It’s only taken me almost 20 years to find my “go-to” make-up must haves.  Do you ever feel like you try a new concealer or lipstick every single time you stop by Ulta or Sephora yet you end up wearing it once, hating it and then get super  frustrated that you just wasted $20-30 once again.   That’s literally how I have felt all these years.  If I could have back all of that wasted money, I swear I could re-decorate my entire house with all that moolah.  After two years of having a monthly subscription to Birch Box, which I HIGHLY suggest by the way, and frequenting many fashion blogs, my search is over.  I have FINALLY found my favorite make-up items.  And here they are…

1.  MAC Bronzing Powder Redefined Golden

This bronzer is the perfect “sun kissed” color that’s not too brown or muddy looking.

Former Home Tour Part One

Part One

Old House 10

Happy Thanksgiving!  For the last couple of months, I have been giving you an in-depth tour of our new home.  So now I am going to take you back for a little tour of our previous home.  Last Fall we closed on our dream home and said goodbye to the home we loved for almost nine years.  This was the home that welcomed both of our girls and almost a decade of family memories.  Before we moved, we had a photographer capture us and our home for us to remember forever.  Enjoy our home tour!

Floral Sweater 1

Isn’t Miss Addison such a doll? I could cry at how fast she is growing up. Addie loved her photo shoot and was such a natural! She equally loved this spunky outfit! Her pants are to die for and this poncho…does it come in my size?? (: Shopping links below. Thanks for stopping by!

A Mess (I mean Work) in Progress…

Welcome to my mess work in progress.  Once upon a time, about six years and 11 months ago, I was an organized neat freak.  Wait a second.  That also happens to be exactly how old my sweet Addison is right now.  I know all of my mommy fans know this all too well.  If I’d have seen the inside of my car right now seven years ago, I’d have thought, clearly my husband took over this vehicle.  Okay kidding kidding.  But nonetheless, I’ve deemed keeping my home and car clean these days to be about as easy as brushing your teeth while eating oreos.  Can I get an amen?!?

As you’ve seen in my posts, we’ve pretty much “finished” all of the rooms in our new home.  We remodeled it from top to bottom in the last ten months and although there are lots of projects still in my head and on my honey do list, I will call every room complete.  Wow that word is strangely difficult for me to write.  As a designer, I think that is almost impossible to do.  AND since my husband admits to be an avid AW blog stalker, I will say that no room of mine will ever be “finished”.  Lol.  Anyways, every room is complete except for one.  And this room has been driving me ca-razy for the last ten months.  It is my office.  It is the first room on the right when you enter our home and right now it is a huge eyesore.  It’s filled with boxes of who knows what and random shelving that I am hoping will eventually be a library wall.

Here is the room BEFORE…

I will keep my opinions about these color choices to myself and let you decide…
