Style | 4.20.17 (BEARPAW Gracie Part 1)

Hi friends!

What beautiful weather we've been having! I am loving this sunshine no coat weather. The arrival of spring is such a mood booster. We had a great weekend and I'm so glad that I was able to be out and about the entire weekend soaking up the sun, because I've been in bed the past 4 days! I had a migraine for 48 hours and it kept me awake 2 nights in a row and I've just felt sick since then. I've been so nauseous and sick to my stomach and the headache has stuck around, but thankfully the migraine has subsided. Thank you for all of the well wishes! I still need them. I hope I feel better for the weekend!

Okay guys, I seriously love the new BEARPAW Bearly There collection. The shoes in the collection really are so lightweight and comfy! I have 2 pairs of the Gracie lace-up style and I love them both. These are them in the color Linen. I really like this color because it's so neutral it looks good with a lot of color schemes. I have them in the color Rose as well --- I will be showcasing them on the blog next week! I love the fun, magenta color they are. It's a nice contrast in my shoe wardrobe to these neutral babes! By the way, I'm still pumped about being a Brand Ambassador for them! I love you BEARPAW!

So story time...
While we were shooting these pictures, a friendly cat came up to Fred and I kept rubbing up against our legs. He wouldn't leave us alone it was so funny! Fred thought I said "He looks so dirty" so he kept trying to dodge him while he was taking the pictures and I was confused because Fred usually loves and pets all animals even strays. I found out when we were done that he misheard what I said about the cat. I had said "He looks so furry" not "He looks so dirty" hahaha it was hilarious. He thought the cat had mud on him or something so he didn't want the cat to get on him because we were going places after this shoot.
Happy almost weekend friends!
Are you excited to see this style in Rose?! Which color would you buy?

Love,

Christina xx

Hi friends!

Happy Wednesday!

You've made it half-way through your week & you're doing great!
Keep it up!

This is the outfit that I wore on Easter Sunday. I really really really LOVE this StyleWe dress. I was speechless when I saw it in person for the first time. The details are just incredible! I'm a fan of floral anything and the flowers on this dress are so detailed and beautiful. It really is the perfect spring dress. Sometimes it's fun to feel really fancy. ;)

How's your week going?

Love,

Christina xx

Last weekend Fred and I went out to dinner and to the performance, Cirque de la Symphonie with his family for his mom's birthday. We ate at de|NOVO and the restaurant was gorgeous. I loved the decor and the creme brûlée was the best I'd ever had. It was soo delicious. The Cirque de la Symphonie was such a cool performance to see. I loved getting to see the acts and listen to music, it was nice getting to enjoy both. It was a really good time! That weekend we also got to see some of our good friends that we hadn't seen in awhile. We had them over to our place for a movie night and it was so good to see them and catch up!

I am beyond excited to announce that I'm going to be a Brand Ambassador for BEARPAW Shoes again this year! Yay! BEARPAW is so generous and they have the most adorable shoes. I seriously can't wait to share my favorite styles with you guys! These shoes I'm wearing in this post are the Aracelli style in the color Hickory and I am in love! One of the best things about BEARPAW shoes is how comfortable they are. They are all about feeling comfy while looking stylish!

Home | 4 Fun & Easy Spring Ideas For Your Home!


Hey guys!

If you've been reading my blog for awhile now, I'm sure you know that I really enjoy the seasons and I like to celebrate each one! You don't have to spend a lot of money or put a ton of effort into embracing the season in your home! You can do as little or as much as you want. I know a lot of people that beautifully decorate their house differently for each season. I admire their decorating and it's always so nice to spend time in a home that feels warm and welcoming! However with Fred and I being newly married and in a temporary space, we haven't quite went all out when the seasons change. Instead, we try to focus on a few small things to add to our space.

The ideas below are what we're trying this spring!
I hope you enjoy these fun ideas to make your place a little more spring-y!

What do you do to embrace the season?

Love,

Christina xx
1. Try Some Green Products!
I've just recently discovered the brand Live Clean and I'm so glad that I tried their products. They have certified organic plant-based ingredients and they're cruelty free, free of harsh chemicals and they're biodegradable and recyclable. Their mission is one that I'm totally on board with. They have safe and gentle products that help protect your family and the planet. This hand soap is my favorite, it smells like a day at the beach!
2. Light A New Scented Candle!
Scent is one of the main ways that I celebrate the different seasons! For spring it feels so good to light a fresh candle with a nice spring-y scent. I love lavender scents for the warmer months and this candle mixes lavender with a sweet shortbread scent... even better!
3. Get A Planter!
How stinkin' cute is the little planter?! We got this as a wedding gift and it just adds life and joy to our home!
4. Add Fun, Printed Pieces! 
I'm a print person! I like to add poppy prints whenever and wherever I can! But my husband is not as big of a fan as I am! He loves to wear prints but when it comes to our home interiors, he likes more clean, simple and classic pieces. But for spring and summer, we both agree that poppy prints are nice! So if you're like me, take advantage of this season and get your print on!!! If you're like my husband, you can always start small! Just add some fun plates to the dinner table, or get some bright hand towels!

Candle, planter & plates are from Anthropologie

Hi guys!

Happy Monday!

I hope your week is off to a great start! Remember, this a fresh new day, a fresh new week and the possibility are endless. Keep chasing your dreams and keep working hard!

These gold, layering necklaces were a part of my most recent Rocksbox box and I've been wearing them nonstop! They are such a good staple piece to have in your jewelry collection. If you'd like to try Rocksbox for yourself, use my code:

I'm so glad the velvet trend is sticking around for spring and summer! I love velvet items so much. They add texture and just overall make a look a lot more fun! I'm also loving kimonos, but I've been on a kimono kick for years now ha ha. But really, I have quite the collection now. I love them because you can throw them over everything and get a boho vibe and they make great swimsuit covers.

P.S- I just wanna thank my husband for taking so many pictures for me and always helping me out. I love you so much Fred! Hopefully you read this post! :p

What's one thing that you're looking forward to this week?!

Love,

Christina xx
