High Point Market- Fall 2018

I got back from HighPoint Market a couple weeks ago and boy do I have a lot to share! I got to experience just so many amazing things. From trend-spotting, to many designer gushy moments meeting new fab friends, to seeing how this whole event has been refreshed has been amazing to be a part […]

Plaid & Playful

I’ve asked myself ‘how is it already October?’ just about a million times since the new month began a few days ago. Time just keeps on flyin’ by but I’m not complaining since its officially…HOLIDAY SEASON! For the next four months, I look to challenge myself to think outside the box on how I can […]

So, stretching your budget and knowing where […]

Red-dy for the Fourth?

Pulling together an outdoor dining space can be daunting- especially in this VA heat. But, with the fourth coming up and mid-summer here, getting set up to have guests over is an absolute must! Aside from getting the perfect table setting, first you need to start with the perfect foundation- a strong, level surface.  And […]

Happy Fathers Day!
