A Guest Post & A Gift!


Happy Monday, lovelies! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was busy but great. I did some shopping, decorated the tree and am really happy to have finally made some progress on Xmas!

And I'm also really happy because I have a few fun things going on today. Firstly, I'm thrilled to be guest posting for the lovely Miss Julie on over at Brown Eyed Belle while she's off having a blast in New Orleans. I'd love it if you all stopped by Julie's gorgeous blog to say hello.

Secondly, I've had a ball participating in Aspiring Splendor's 12 Days of Christmas, a Secret Santa gift exchange where 12 bloggers send gifts to one another that suit their personality based on their blog. So without further adieu, it's my turn!


On the 4th day of Christmas, the lovely Keely from Luxe & Lillies gave to me...

...a gorgeous and oh so delicious Crisp Champagne candle from Voluspa!

I absolutely love it! It goes perfectly with my decor and it smells so good!
Thank you Keely! I couldn't have asked for a lovelier gift.



On the fifth day of Christmas, super stylish Michelle from Studio Surface will be receiving 2 things!

One inspiring to read & another très chic to carry!


I want to thank the amazing Lauren and Beth of Aspiring Splendor for organizing this fabulous blogger collaborative! This really has been a ton of fun!

Hope you all have a chance to stop by all of the fabulous blogs above and I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! xoxo
