Nordstom 2017 Anniversary Sale

Jul 24, 2017

It's the best time of year y'all! Nordstrom is one of my favorite stores to shop for my staple pieces. I try and wait until this particular sale to grab items that will help get me through the fall season. Every July it is like Nordstrom blesses us with Christmas. Hallelujah! If you are a card holder you can get early access to the sale not only online, but in store as well. Early access gets you in the doors to pre shop the sale from July 13th- 20th. This gives you a wonderful opportunity to shop the sale before it is open to the public. Now the sale is open to all! 

Launch of Magnolia + Beach Design Co.

Jun 8, 2017

Words cannot describe how excited and proud I am to officially launch my design company. Being creative and constantly having paint all over my hands brings me so much joy. As a child, I always loved arts and crafts and really have my grandmother to thank for that. Over the past few years, I have found myself diving into several creative projects when I got home from work. Spending my downtime creating something that will last a lifetime is something that really makes me feel I have a purpose. When I was planning our wedding I found myself doing any project I found would fit with our theme.

My Favorite Time of the Year: Peony Season

May 1, 2017

You know it is peonies season when you start to see your Instagram feed blow up with photos of beautiful blooms. Peonies (as well as Magnolias) are my favorite flower. I always seem to forget these beautiful blooms are not available year round. Peony season usually runs from April until June and your blooms will typically last around ten days. Last year when I was planning our wedding I knew I wanted Peonies to be the main flower. In the back of my mind, I knew there was a certain time of the year the flowers were available and I just knew our wedding date in September was not going to fit that time frame.  Fortunately, we had a wonderful florist for our special day who helped me get the look I was after with large garden roses in white. I found the large roses gave off a look of peonies, so if you find yourself in a pickle like I did, you will find the roses to be a great alternative.
