Christmas is coming faster than I can believe, and I’m feeling the urge to get things done as the holiday approaches. Amid all of the shopping, preparing for guests, and family time, it can be easy to let things become disorganized in December, so before life gets too crazy, I wanted to list out some areas to declutter in my life this month. A lot of these areas are things I wouldn’t feel the need to organize regularly, but will be especially helpful as we approach the holidays. Let’s declutter!
Hi friends, and happy 1st of December! I can’t believe we are already to the last month of the year, but I’m so excited for the festive season. Mine is kicking off tonight with a fun holiday event I’m hosting at Madewell in Little Rock, and I hope to see some of you there to chat capsule wardrobes and blogging! As I was thinking about December content, I wanted to challenge myself to do more. As my Christmas break approaches, (perks of working in education!) I’m looking forward to more time to spend on my content, and I’m tentatively planning on posting either a blog post or a video each day through Christmas. If you have any requests, send them my way! For now here are some festive links to check out. From velvet heels to yummy recipes, let’s get the season started!
All Things Cozy
Happy weekend friends! I hope this Saturday finds you with some time to rest and embrace all things cozy. A chill has come to Little Rock this week, and when I’ve been home, I’ve been huddled up with cozy sweaters and innumerable cups of tea. I spent today helping my grandfather set up a Christmas village, something he used to do every year when I was growing up! This year we set up a miniature London for some holiday events, and it was so special to help him put it together. Over the rest of the weekend I’m looking forward to some reading, music rehearsals, and maybe a little bit of popcorn and Hulu.
The change in seasons always motivates me to lighten up my life, and this fall that has manifested itself in a hefty declutter of my belongings. Stuff accumulates so quickly, and I find that I need to do a good declutter at least once a year. During this most recent organization and decluttering spree, I was surprised both by how much I had collected, and how much I could say goodbye to with no regrets. I went through several categories of belongings, and today I’m sharing those with you. I’ll also be sharing my favorite apps for selling those items once you’ve decided to let them go. Let’s get rid of stuff!
Hi friends! I’ve recently started sharing a few sewing tutorials over on the YouTube channel, and I thought I’d start to post them here on the blog as well. Several of you have expressed interest in learning how to sew or in getting back into making your own clothes, so I hope you find these videos helpful and inspiring! Today’s project? A pleated midi skirt! This particular skirt was inspired by one I saw at Club Monaco a while back, and I love how it turned out. There is no pattern required, and it would be a great beginning project.
