Introduction to The Hunted Interior

By now you know I love to share new and exciting things I find. So today is no exception. I’d like to introduce you to The Hunted Interior Blog written by Kristin Jackson. Her blog is focused on Interior Design and “hunting” in your home for ways to redo and reuse things you already have. What a genius idea! My friend has been telling me about her for months now and for some reason, today was the day I finally looked her up. I’ve been changed. I have found all of the inspiration for my new loft in the city (where we’ll be moving THIS WEEKEND) and my future home with little ones. Her style is beautiful, timeless, elegant, sophisticated and every bit of what I would like my home to be. So, without further adieu, a taste of HER home.

Her designs are flawless, homey, comfortable, inviting, but oh so fabulous and lovely. This is what I will strive for. I hope you enjoy this and if you’d  like to fill your pin boards with Kristin’s personal inspiration and her own home photos, visit her beautiful Pinterest page here.

Happy Thursday, Friends!

Love Yourself Link Up

Love Yourself Link Up: Be Inspired

Love Yourself | AubreyHubbellDesign | Chic to Chic Blog |

Today I am writing as part of the Love Yourself Linkup – an ongoing blog series that focuses on topics like self image and body image. A community of women post their thoughts on these topics and tell stories of personal experiences.We’ll share what inspired us, challenged us and more! Learn more about the Love Yourself Linkup at Anne the Adventurer. If you have a story to share too, join the conversation by writing and clicking to enter below!

Yesterday afternoon I thought about this post and what I wanted to share. I pulled up Pinterest and I was really surprised when I searched “Love Yourself”. There were so many inspiring words and phrases. It really showed me, loving yourself is something everyone deals with. It’s not easy. Between society’s expectations on our bodies and our expectations for ourselves. Loving Yourself is a constant challenge we face. Looking in the mirror, looking at others around us and reading the latest magazines with the beautiful models, we are constantly comparing. What if we just loved ourselves, just the way we are.

I’d like to share a few inspiring words I found in hopes they would also uplift and encourage you to love yourself today and show you that you are not alone. We all face the challenge of loving ourselves and feeling like we are enough. Let these words fill your heart and mind and be a daily reminder to LOVE YOURSELF.

Darling, open your eyes. You are not made up of those words that hurt you or that number on the scale. You are not the expectations that you feel you will never meet. You are made up of nothing more than you.You are a lovely and complex soul. An individually fascinating combination of thoughts, ideas, feelings,emotions. No other is as beautiful as you. Look past the mirror. Look at your soul. Only then will you see yourself as you truly are. Beautiful.

Stop hating yourself for everything you aren’t. Start LOVING YOURSELF for everything you are.
Love Yourself. Without your flaws, you wouldn’t be you.

Your mission: Be so busy loving yourself and your life that you have no time for hate, regret or fear.
CAUTION!! Object in mirror may appear distorted due to socially constructed ideas of beauty.

Love yourself. Accept yourself. Forgive yourself and be good to yourself. Because without you, the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.

I hope these words encourage you as much as they did me. You’re not alone, that’s why we write about loving yourself and the issues we face everyday too. Happy Tuesday, Friends!

A Tasty Snack & A Wall Collage

Apple Snack | Chic to Chic Blog |

I’m enjoying a tasty snack post-workout and doing a little Pinterest “ing” this Monday morning.

1 Apple

1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter (softened)

1 Teaspoon Natural Honey

1 Dash of Cinnamon

Cut up the apple and drizzle the honey and peanut butter over the sliced apples. Add dash a bit of cinnamon on the top and Enjoy!

My Pinterest “ing” consists of adding more to my House Change board. I’m brainstorming on a few things for the new place. One thing I’m really considering is a collage wall. Either in the hallway or beside my desk, I’d love to gather a collection of white or black frames showcasing my favorite prints, quotes and maybe some of my own artwork. This is what Pinterest is inspiring me with!

What do you like better, black or white frames, same size frames or different shapes and sizes, and what would you put in a frame collage if it were your wall? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy Monday, Friends!
