Tis the Season – Gift Wrapping Ideas

December 10, 2013

This year I’ve been seeing such pretty gift wrapping ideas that I can’t wait to get all of my gifts in the mail so I can finally wrap them all.  Yes, I decided to buy pretty much everything online this year because I can never find what I want in-stores and I can’t take the madness of holiday shopping (but I do love walking around because everything feels so festive and happy).

If you have a hard time following along with just photos and text here are some gift wrapping videos by The Red Thread that I love!  They’re super easy to follow along and the perfect amount of festive colors and patterns with keeping things simple. Watch all of the videos here.

If you don’t have time for all the fuss adding a cute gift tag can spruce up your gift.  These are free to download too on Oh So Pretty.

Inspiration Monday #6 – Hard days.

November 11, 2013

Some days are harder than others, some days are harder to see the good in every day, but we can still try and fight as hard as we can.

It’s a new week, let’s start it off on a high note.

Inspiration Monday #4 – The Journey.

October 21, 2013

I think we can get so lost in the end goal we forget about how we feel and what we put ourselves through in the journey getting there.  Was it enjoyable?  Did it meet your expectations?  Did you learn something?  Did you love it?  Was it worth it?

Bedside Table Inspiration.

October 16, 2013

Lately I’ve been using a foldable stool as a temporary bedside table (don’t judge me) because I haven’t been able to find any that I really love.  When it comes to purchasing anything (clothes, bags, furniture, etc) I almost always have to mentally check off reasons if I really need it and if I really love it.

Here are some bedside tables that I’m loving right now.

Dipped tables/chairs when done right can never be out of my style in my book.

I’ve always wanted a mid-century style bedside table, but it’s been difficult finding one I like in my budget.  In another lifetime my friend.

Weekly Findings #6 – Cozy Autumn.

September 23, 2013

This is a long overdue Weekly Findings, but this one is inspired by the start of Autumn.  The colder weather  makes me want to stay in bed  snuggled in my sheets, wear fluffy socks and sweaters, throw on big hoodies, and drink hot chocolate out of big mugs.
