Goodbye 2014. It’s Been Real…

I wasn't really planning on posting anything else this year but decide to do a little round up of a few of my favorite posts from this year. It's sort of like strolling through 2014 to see some of the things I wrote about. Home Decor // Living Room Tour I had so much fun sharing my ideas and process when redecorating our living room with the help of IKEA. It was an exciting collaboration and loved the end result. I still can't get over how polished this room looks. Plus, it's ...

Holidays // Favorite Christmas Movies

It's random but we love it. And of ...

With bright and bold colors, patterns, and lots of cute doggy photos of her sweet little Habibi -- I feel that the look was accomplished! ...

Soft Toys 4 Education & Wrapped in IKEA

A few weeks ago I was invited to a fun Holiday event at my local IKEA store. I loved seeing all the great holiday goodies they have (there is so much gold!!) but my favorite part of the event was learning about their amazing "Soft Toys 4 Education" campaign! We got to see all the amazing plushes that IKEA has to offer -- and besides the fact that all these plushes are adorable, they also donate $1 for the purchase of any plush. The donations collected are given to Unicef and will give ...
