Home Organization Ideas

Happy 2020! I always want to majorly declutter and organize at the start of a new year. Maybe it’s the new year or the taking down of all the Christmas decorations, but I always want to do a serious home edit! And this means that I need to purchase new home storage and decor items!

How I Keep My Energy Up During the Holidays

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of PLUS products

I love so many things about the holiday season!  From the Christmas commercials to the festive decor, and from holiday music to the shopping, I soak it all in!  But that doesn’t mean the holiday season doesn’t stress me out more than any other time of the year.  Because it totally does.

While I really enjoy giving gifts to the ones I love, I always feel pressure to find the gifts that will make them happiest.  And yes, I love holiday decorations, but knowing I have to take them all down in January?  That stresses me out!  Plus, it always seems that the social calendar overfills itself around the holidays.  I have trouble living in the moment rather than thinking about how to fit everything in and still find time to sleep. read more

So, I thought I was a beach girl. But I’ve been wrong this entire time. Maybe I did, in fact, used to be a beach girl, but Woodloch Resort in the Pocono Mountains has converted me to a mountain girl. It’s a pretty big deal for me to say that, since I grew up 35 minutes from Ocean City, NJ and have made countless day trips to the beach. I spent my teenage years in surf-inspired clothing and too many hours sun-bathing by the waves.

But Woodloch is SO GOOD that I would choose to visit the resort in the Poconos in the summer in lieu of a week at the Jersey Shore. This. Is. BIG. read more

My Cozy and Stylish Holiday Hosting Essentials

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Trapp.

I am soooo excited that fall has officially arrived! Hosting and entertaining is so much more fun in cozy weather. I love everything, from the fall and winter décor to the sound of the crowd cheering on the TV during Sunday football to the pumpkin spice anything! Last year, we even hosted a meatball cook-off and voted on our favorites!

But, my absolute favorite thing about hosting during the colder months is lighting all the cozy candles! I want guests to feel at home the minute they cross the threshold, and with my new favorite candle (and candle brand), they will feel comfortable and cozy in an instant! read more
