12 Days of Christmas: Holiday Pinspiration

For Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas series, I wanted to share the images that have been inspiring me as I am thinking of decorating my space for the holidays. These have all been found on Pinterest, of course, and I can’t wait to give some of these a try! What is inspiring you for the holidays?

The first is this tiny wreath with a huge impact. I love the big green glitter ornaments paired with the frosted gold ones, it gives it a really nice traditional look. The sprigs of holly are also a really nice touch adding some depth around the ribbons. The tiny wreath form is hardly visible through all the decorations, and I am digging it.

This is probably the project I am most excited to try. The different sized bottle brush trees are so cute inside that beautiful apothecary jar. Seems so simple to achieve but will surely add some huge cuteness factor to my mantel. I am also on the hunt for those adorable vintage deer, anyone know where I can find them?

I open at the close. Any Harry Potter fan would appreciate this golden snitch replica, and I am no exception. I don’t think I want a whole bunch of snitches on my tree but I wouldn’t mind one floating around. The glittery wings are what captivated me and I am so thankful for the excellent tutorial provided that I am planning to follow soon.

It would not be a proper pinspiration post (say proper pinspiration post 3x fast) if I did not include a manicure. Because I have been loving the matte nail trend, I feel this is one look I can easily achieve while still feeling festive. The glossy tips add a nice touch atop the velvety emerald green and red. I may just rock this for my best friends holiday party!

Aren’t these the cutest little reindeer you have ever seen! And it seems so easy to achieve. I am a horrible baker so I plan to buy the sugar cookies and assembling them at home for my family.

Well, I hardly doubt this needs any explanation. Glitter is definitely my chosen medium for all things crafty all year round, but I love adding some extra sparkle to my home during the holidays and I cannot wait to continue sharing what I have been working on with y’all soon!

Pinspire Me: Top Fallspirations

The weather has dropped to 88 degrees with the recent cold front and it’s making me want to celebrate the new season. It has been a while since I have shared a Pinterest-inspired post and decided that the new fall season was a perfect opportunity to do just that. I have a few things to share, all having to do with autumn, because I am ready to bring the new season into my home.

First up, this beautiful fall mantel. I was instantly drawn to that starburst mirror, that the author of the post actually made herself, because it reminds me so much of my own. Then I noticed how cohesive the entire display looked. The wooden pumpkin, those rustic vases, the owl and the leaf garland are all the perfect accessories to surround the mirror. I hope I can create something just as beautiful. And when I do, you will be the first to see it.

As you all may know, my goal this past year has been to cultivate my green thumb. Which is probably why I was instantly drawn to this pumpkin planter, that the author describes as a “mumkin”, which I think is just adorable. The brown satin bow adds the perfect fall touch to this fall centerpiece. You better believe you will see this around my living room soon.

I have been awaiting the fall season to arrive so I can start to make some new wreaths. Last year I discovered a love for them after making a Halloween monster wreath. But I recently handed it off to my nephew for him to enjoy and so I could have a reason to make a new one. I am definitely inspired by this Dia de los muertos-esque wreath shown above.

Now for some miscellaneous inspiration. Y’all have to know how obsessed I am with all things nails. And lately, matte has been my thang. I can totally see myself rocking these all month long. I hope y’all follow the link and try out some of the other fall mani trends they included like mixed prints, 3D accents and jewel tones.

I have only talked a bit about my recent transition to eating clean. Experimenting with new recipes has been my newest obsession. This blog has been such a huge inspiration with her “cheap clean eats” recipes. Check them out, they are all delicious and well, cheap. I can’t wait to try these pumpkin pancakes soon!

  How have you welcomed the new season?
