The Glam Girl Gift Guide 2016 | This is our Bliss

The Ultimate Glam Girl Holiday Gift Guide

Hey, all! I want to take a second to thank you for all your sweet notes and comments about our Merry & Metallic Christmas Home over the past few weeks! It was nice to have the house all gussied up early, so I could relax and enjoy some time as a family before the hustle and bustle starts back up again. And that time is now! Since I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who still has some shopping and wrapping to do, I thought I would share a gift guide today that I’ve been working on for a little while. I’m calling this one The Glam Girl Gift Guide and it’s filled with items I’ve been eyeing lately and have even picked some up as gifts. Truthfully, I wouldn’t mind it if any one of these things were wrapped up with my name on the tag! T are you reading?! Continue reading

Starting to Deck the Halls! [Christmas Home Sneak Peek]

The decking has begun! It’s official. The Christmas decorating is in full-swing over here and today I’m sharing a sneak peek of our Christmas Home! I always scoop up after-season sale items to use the following year, but I usually can’t stop myself from grabbing a few new decor pieces just before or even while I’m spreading holiday cheer around the house. This year, I’m especially excited about a few new finds from Kirkland’s Christmasland collection. I decided to go quite neutral with my decor this time, at least in a few main areas and knew when I saw spotted some of their new holiday items [specifically the ones with a touch of metallic gold] they had to join the fun at my house!

Fall 2016 One Room Challenge [Week 2: Dining Room Lighting]

We celebrated T’s birthday over the weekend on the most beautiful fall day. His parents got to town around 10, so we drank coffee and played with the boys out back, golfed in the afternoon and since we had a sitter at the house, we decided to have dinner out, too! But somehow, an early night in on Saturday still made for a long day of recovering on Sunday! And then Monday came and I knew it was time to get moving on some projects. One in particular, as you might guess…

So, how the dining room is coming along?!

Well….let’s see…ummm…can I get an extension, please?!! Continue reading
