I am so excited to share the Starfish project with you guys, not only because I think they are amazing for meaningful holiday jewelry gift ideas, but also because I am so passionate about this cause.  You see, the Starfish Project is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to restore hope to woman  escaping human trafficking and exploitation in Asia. They provide life-changing opportunities through our Holistic Care Programs and our social enterprise where women create beautiful jewelry and become managers, accountants, graphic designers, and photographers. So I have a challenge for you guys. It's the holidays. Everyone has gifts to buy—for your...

So as I worked my fingers to the bone last night transforming our home for Christmas, I realized that I have never shared the CC and Mike gameroom reveal with you guys. Now I'm going to keep it real because you guys know that's what I do. I haven't shared our gameroom because when I look at it, I see a lot of things I want to change as well as a bunch of unfinished items on my to-do list. I see all the problems. I see the unfinished. I see an uncompleted room. Just being honest. I wanted to finish up...

I'm so excited to reveal the second phase of our Good Remodel Project and also talk about Modern Bathroom and Bar Design Ideas! Bathroom and bar areas are some of my absolute favorite areas to design-after kitchens of course —for several reasons : Bathrooms and Bars are an area to have a little FUN just like I did in our pool bathroom that I revealed a few months ago!  That's right—stop being scared. It's not your kitchen or your living room. It's just a bathroom. Go ahead and be brave! Use that patterned tile, go for the hexagon floors, paint those cabinets a...

If you've been seeing all those gorgeous posts of that blue green color that is so hot right now and swooning, like I have, this post is for you because not only am I revealing our dining room (finally) —but I'm also sharing my top 3 blue green paint colors for dark and dramatic walls!  I knew when we moved into our house that I wanted to paint my dining room walls a dark and dramatic blue green color but I just wasn't quite sure which one. I searched and pinned and searched and pinned, and ultimately I decided on...

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you." ~Maya Angelou. In late September of 2015, I sat down and wrote the first Chapter to a book that I thought no one would ever see. I wrote for myself. I wrote to forgive. But most of all, I wrote to heal. I look back now and realize that, for years, I carried the weight of an untold story inside of me. Finally, on that early fall day in September of 2015, I found the strength and the courage to start telling my story. I started writing Magnetic—a Young Adult mystery/romance...
