There is so much I love about the Holiday Season, gathering with friends and loved ones, the food, the cocktails, finding that perfect gift and then wrapping it up in a fun and creative way. Over the years I’ve shared many of my favorite ways to wrap presents for loved ones, so I thought I would pull them all together for quick and easy access. With gift wrapping made easy, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy time with family and friends.
I haven’t worn a watch in over 15 years! When the Guess Watch I got as my sweet sixteen birthday gift died, I just never replaced it. At first I felt naked, it’s absence was palpable. But slowly, overtime, I forgot and just got used to not wearing a watch. This was also around the time cell phones became like appendages, so it’s not shocking I didn’t miss it.
Earlier this year though, I began to feel like I might want to finally replace that Guess Watch. But there were so many choices – I loved rose gold, but would I tire of it? Then I discovered wood watches. They were a little rustic, yet still elegant. They were trendy, but classic, something that would stand the test of time, get it, the test of time 😉
A couple of weeks ago, I stepped into a space I feel like I’ve been dancing around for almost two years – the space of being a blogger and an interior decorator. Now for anyone who has followed me for any amount of time, you may be thinking what the heck is she talking about?
While I’ve been blogging and decorating in that time, I’ve been anxious to claim the space of either. Always feeling like I was kinda a blogger, kinda a decorator. One foot in, one foot out. After all, bloggers are young hip 20-somethings or moms with parenting advice, not 30-something singletons trying to turn a side hustle into their main hustle. And well, interior decorators are trained, not self taught – or so the story goes.
