Happy Memorial Day!

Most holidays have a correlating color scheme.  Some color schemes such as the red and green palette of Christmas have a short life, while other holidays such as Easter have a scheme that can last for a whole season.  Memorial Day falls in the latter category.  It’s patriotic palette of red, white and blue looks crisp, fresh and can last from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Memorial Day also brings some of the best home sales.  Pottery Barn is offering 25% off orders of $1000 or more with code: SAVEMORE (this is a rare sale for PB!  Need a new sofa? NOW is the time to order it!).  William Sonoma Home is offering up to 40% off bedroom furniture, Lulu and Georgia is also offering 25% off of $1000 or more with code: MEMORIAL25, Grandin Road is offering 40% off select outdoor items with code: MEMORIALDAY2016 and Ballard Designs is offering 25% off when you spend $750 or more!.

Here are some of my favorite items to help you ring in the Summer season!

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy Memorial Day!!!



A Chic and Happy Mother’s Day!

My absolute favorite quote on Motherhood is by Elizabeth Stone.  She writes, “Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside of your body”.  It wasn’t until I became a Mother that I truly realized how both powerful and powerless I am.  The depths and range of emotions that one feels after becoming a Mother is immeasurable.  It heightens all senses to superpower levels.  We see, taste and feel things more than ever before.  We develop eyes in the back of our heads, for God’s sake!!

Although Motherhood doesn’t define us, it is undeniable that it becomes a part of ourselves that resides so deep that it can never cease to exist and which all acts of love flow from.  Mother’s Day is a day to honor and celebrate that part of ourselves, as well as the women in our lives that helped shape us as Mothers.

Here are a few great gifts for Mom to show her how much you love her and to add a little style to her life 🙂

Jo Malone Room Diffuser, Rosanna porcelain and gold mug, Kate Spade jewelry box

Kate Spade throw, Hampton Street vase, One In a Million necklace

Wishing all Moms a chic and Happy Mother’s Day!
