Honeymoon Cruise With Celebrity Cruises


Now that our whirlwind wedding weekend is behind us - we are starting to prepare for our honeymoon! I'm so glad we took a few weeks between to get all our ducks in a row and catch up on work and organizing so we can really unplug and relax. We are setting sail with Celebrity Cruises for a 13 day tour around Europe and I could not be more excited! I dreamed of honeymooning in Europe - but Austin was a bit more hesitant. When the opportunity to cruise with Celebrity came up we thought it was a great compromise, I get the thrill of traveling all over Europe, but we have a luxurious home base to come back to and relax at every night. I've started packing - which will be a challenge for me as always, I'd love to look cute while abroad but also be comfortable for long days exploring. Below are a few pieces I have my eye on! Do you have any tips on dressing for Italy, Spain + France in October?

Fall Beauty Buys From Walmart



It’s hard to believe that Fall is here-- since it’s my favorite time of year I so look forward to the temperatures beginning to drop and that crisp feeling in the air that signifies the change of season. With this cooler weather comes a change in wardrobe, skincare and beauty (hello dark nails) that I so anticipate! Today I’ve teamed up with Walmart to share my 10 beauty essentials for Fall - I treat this time of year as prep-work for winter when it comes to my skin. I try to keep it as supple as I can until the dry winter air arrives and I love to stock up on affordable products when I know I’ll use them daily! Read on for my picks..

Updating Your Home For Fall



It's hard to believe that it's September! Around this time of year I love to make a few seasonal swaps to my decor -- I put away my bright blue toss pillows and gravitate to a more neutral palette. I also like to add a new piece of furniture each year to replace some of our more "loved" hand me downs. Today I've partnered with Havertys to share a few of my favorite pieces from their fall collection. I'm smitten over the versatile Beacon Hill Coffee Table which I think would look great with a few fall accent pieces and even better this winter with my holiday decor -- I love the weathered look of the wood. And this Angelina Floor Mirror? Such a great classic piece that would work for years to come. Do you own any pieces from Havertys? If so - share how you style them in your home using the hashtag #HavertysInspired -- I'd love to see!

My favorite Havertys pieces: Pouf // Florence Settee // Angelina Mirror // Element Cocktail Table // Carla Chair // Leopard Pillow // Beacon Hill Coffee Table // Somerset Hurricane
