Decorating a new home is not an easy task! My first project was the pillows. After hours of searching for the perfect pillows, I was drawn toward different patterns. Then I decided I loved the options available with pillow covers. I’ll start with my favorite four and then when I want an update, all I have to do is purchase a new cover. I got these great pillows inserts on sale at Nordstrom. Then after researching and messaging several Etsy shops, I happened upon the Blossom Pillow Co.  Julie, the owner, was incredibly helpful. She went above and beyond, sending me samples for not only the four prints I requested, but several other black, white and ivory prints. It was so hard for this indecisive gal to narrow my choices down to four. After messaging her my final print decisions, before I knew it, I received the beautiful covers in the mail. They fit my 20×20 pillow inserts perfectly. They were exactly what I was looking for. I love the variety in black and white prints and absolutely love walking into our main area and seeing them on our couches. They provide the perfect touch. Our guests love to cuddle up with them with their after dinner tea. We enjoy propping them up for the latest Modern Family. And, I enjoy telling my girlfriends all about the incredible service I received from Julie at the Blossom Pillow Co. Next on my list are her darling placemats, in black and white of course!

Be sure to check out Julie’s Etsy Shop and tell me what your favorite items are! And if you’re in need of any pillow covers, placemats or even coasters, Julie’s your gal!

Happy Saturday, Friends!

Black, White & Gold Craving

Horse Lamp | Paper Placemats | Print | Zebra Dish | Giraffe | Pillows | Frame | Animals | Straws | Phone Case

Of course this craving stems from our new loft’s color scheme! Because what else has been on my mind lately?! But isn’t it a beautiful combo? It seems like it’s all over right now. From Waiting on Martha, Nordstrom and even a fun card shop/party store called Swoozie’s. You can find the everything online!

Tell me what you think about Chic to Chic’s craving! What would you love to have in your home, at your party or in your bag?

It’s that time of the year again.

It’s that time again where you really shouldn’t be hearing from me. I should be drowning in final projects (which I am) and not coming up for air. However, when you’ve worked for weeks on end on these very projects, even though they’re still not done, it’s REALLY hard to focus. I have until 6:30pm tonight to turn in one final project. I should really get going, but ….oh look my tea is ready, the sun is so shiny, mmm… love my protein shake. See there are just too many other things that are way more exciting! I know, I know I’ve become a procrastinator. A procrastinator, really! It’s just so easy when there is no brain power left and little things around me suddenly become the most exciting things I’ve ever seen. So, this is my final outlet. I have to get it all out and go…. So, my last words will be that of this weekend. Well not words, but pictures. You remember the post last week where I shared the weekend through Insta pictures? Well, I think I might just do that again. Check out this crazy weekend – in no particular order with a little narration.

I’m Dreaming.

It’s happening. It’s snowing again. And I’m dreaming of a day when there’s no more snow and sunlight streams through my windows. I’m also dreaming of A Change of House. If you’re a follower on MY PINTEREST PAGE you know what’s been on my mind lately. My A Change of House board has gotten lots of attention. I’m dreaming of light colors, sunlight and little details that make the place. Feminine. Flirty. Whites. Neutrals. Cozy. Darling. I think I’ll share with you.

Kylie's Shower | Chic to Chic Blog

A flight to the South. A shuttle. A dinner date. A quick chat with the fam. A late night. An early wakeup. A Starbucks breakfast run. A dress find at Target. A quick dress up and onto the Partaaay…

This weekend we celebrated my dearest friend, Kylie. She’s set to wed on the first of June and I’m one of the lucky girls to stand beside her. Weeks of planning led to the fabulous Lingerie & Bridal Shower for the lovely lady and boy was it funnn.

What happened at Kylie’s Shower, stays at Kylie’s Shower…. am I right, girls?!

A reunion of sorts with all of the gorgeous gals I haven’t seen since high school! It had been way too long. Overall it was a whirlwind, but what a fab whirlwind it was!

27 hours later back in Denver Matt & I celebrated Easter on Sunday and now it’s back to school and work for me.

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Better. | www.chictochicblog.wordpress.com | A. Design

 

It’s Thursday. The week is almost over. I’m feeling better. The body is just catching up from the nasty cold that was happening the last few days. The Hubby is feeling better too. I think he might feel even better after coming home to a batch of freshly baked Peanut Butter cookies, a Pinterest favorite found here (easiest recipe ever).

But back to the cold, not the sick cold, but the snow storm everyone on the weather channel has been talking about! Yep, it made its way to Denver. I was determined NOT to wear my big, warm coat and even bigger Uggs yesterday afternoon. I wanted to look cute on my first day back as a semi-well student. So, I wore my brand new Vince Camuto flats and my classic black pea coat. Boy, did I regret it. It was a hurricane of snow by 4pm. That probably wasn’t the smartest decision I’ve ever made. Oh well, I was all dressed up to welcome the snow. That’s my fine excuse!

Where in the world are you? Has flu or snow season hit your neck of the woods? Hopefully you’re staying nice and warm and well. I’m going to brave the cold and head off to class for the night. Pray I can stay awake until 9:15pm. I may or may not have nodded off in last night’s class. Whfew, back into the swing of things.

 

Happy Thursday, Friends!
