I grew up with a mom who loved to make holidays and birthdays feel really special. SHE is just really special like that! I love having little festive touches in my home for the holidays. I also like to make cute treats and themed food for holidays (as you probably know haha). Everything tastes better off of a cute plate, right?!
Does anyone else think that the gift wrap is a part of the gift?! I LOVE and appreciate pretty gift wrap. At this time of year, beautiful gift wrap is especially important because our gifts serve as pieces of decor.
You guys, its almost Chanukah!! I am Jewish and I married a Christian and the result of that is double the holidays. I think that its fun that we get to celebrate both holidays. I'm sure that our kids won't hate the extra festivities or presents either haha.
Is anyone else getting sick of the same old Christmas music already?! I'm not big on the old school classical Christmas music (sue me). I am into a more modern twist that's definitely heavy on pop. Be warned that if you don't like Bieber
I don't even ever stuff the stockings in our home but I LOVE having them! Maybe this year I will stuff Jay's/both of ours haha. I love how cuddly and cozy these stockings are! I could sleep with them and cuddle them but instead I choose to be normal and hang
I always think that spending money on your home is worth it compared to spending money other ways because it's where you spend time every single day! I have a bit of an addiction for holiday decor and could buy that stuff non stop haha.
I LOVE creating a tablescape! It was by far my favorite part of playing hostess for my Friendsgiving dinner. I wanted to keep it clean, neutral but have soft undertones. I also wanted to distract from the fact that it was set up on
I like to do a little Halloween decor coffee tablescape each year. This year I had Jay carve the pumpkins haha. Other years I've put fresh flowers into large pumpkins but I didn't want to spend money on flowers just for them to die within a week.
I'd say that candles are 100 percent necessary for creating a cozy home. I am a candle addict and if I'm being totally honest, kind of a candle snob. I discovered how much better quality candles are. They smell so much better and reach such a wider area
Is it just me or are traditional "gift baskets" ridiculously outdated?! Does anyone actually eat the apple in the baskets or remember to bake with the mix from them?! I get it though, it's hard (and time consuming) to think of cute combinations
Three years ago we moved in to #CozyCuratorHome (except there was no Cozy Curator then). It feels like forever ago and yet at the same time like time is moving too fast. Jay and I must have talked about living
Let's be real, even when I'm decorating for a holiday I'm not bringing much color into my home. I think I might be allergic to color in my home decor! My least favorite color of all: orange! Talk about scary for Halloween! My husband always mocks me by saying
Our patio is my little oasis! I know how rare outdoor living space is in a city so I don't take this area for granted! When we looked at apartments back in 2015, we hoped to move into our current complex. The complex has three huge buildings in it but
The guy that we bought the apartment from added an awesome TV unit built in that had an orangish wood wash. It was really cool but definitely not my style. I *maturely* agreed to live with it for a year and see if it grew on me.
Beautifying can be such a fun or daunting process, depending on the setup. An organized makeup storage arrangement can help the process go by smoothly. It is so nice
Our guys deserve a little extra love on Valentine's Day too. These small gifts aren't themed for Valentine's Day because not enough guys want to be decked out in hearts.
