Travel Jewelry Box under $35!

24 Nov

I always bring my favorite jewelry pieces with me when I travel and I’ve had the same travel jewelry box forever and it’s worn out. As I was Black Friday shopping in my pajamas, I came across this super cute and affordable jewelry box. It comes in a variety of colors, has plenty of storage while still being small enough to pack or bring in a purse, and it looks very expensive! I ordered the pink of course and can’t wait to take my next trip with this pretty box. This jewelry box doesn’t look like your average travel jewelry box and could easily be used at home as well to keep your jewelry organized.

Also, if you’re into monograms, you can also add your initials for $9.50.

Affordable Luxury. Fine jewelry that you can afford!

23 Jul

When shopping for jewelry, two things catch my eye before anything else. Quality and price. Some quality pieces are unattainable, while some affordable pieces are lacking in quality. I’m so excited to share a jewelry company that offers affordable luxury. YES, you read that right. Ethically sourced gold, diamond and pearl jewelry that is fairly priced. Let me introduce you to AUrate .AUrate necklace

I have yet to see a company this transparent when it comes to pricing and the designs are so beautiful, you’re going to want everything.  If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know dainty jewelry is my thing.  The AUrate website is dainty jewelry heaven.  As if that wasn’t enough, with every purchase, AUrate donates a book to a child in need.

The pieces I’ve been obsessed with since they’ve arrived on my doorstep are the Stackable ring ($50) and the Diamond bezel ring. ($150) (pictured below)I’ve been wearing them together and can’t get enough! I’ve received so many compliments on them and I’ve only had them for a few days now.

Affordable Jewelry Alert!

I recently discovered the Sugarfix by Baublebar line of jewelry at Target. I’ve always loved Baublebar jewelry and they’ve been reasonably priced, but this partnership with Target has even further reduced prices- tons of stuff under $20!!!! My latest obsession is a layered gold choker from the collection that was only $16.99. Head over to Target and check out their super cute, affordable designs!

Let’s Talk Terrariums!

28 Feb

I’ve been getting so many questions about my cute little terrarium and thought I’d share all the information with you here. First of all, if you don’t know what a terrarium is, don’t fret. I’m sure you’ve seen them around. A terrarium is an enclosed, indoor garden, usually small and made of glass so that you can see your collection of plants. Before I knew that they were called terrariums, I was searching for ‘Geometric plant holder” and open air vase” on Pinterest and google until I purchased mine from West Elm.

Now that we’ve covered the name, let’s talk about how cute terrariums are and how neat it is to have a living piece of art in your home. I also love how low maintenance they are- I literally mist mine with a spray bottle once a week and nothing more. Making it was quick and easy as well (and I am NOT a crafty person). It took me about 20 minutes total. Pinterest gave me inspiration and I looked up you tube videos on how to layer the terrarium in different ways and chose the look of white rocks on the bottom to match my current gold and neutral theme. Some people incorporate sand as well as tiny figurines. I kept mine more minimal and layered it starting on the bottom with white rocks, then added some dirt from outside, planted succulents in the dirt, then topped it off with some moss. It’s fun to make them your own!

I bought the succulents, white rocks, and moss from Home depot and the actual terrarium is from West Elm. I definitely recommend a terrarium if you want to add a cool piece of living breathing art to your home. They are easy, affordable and super cute!!!

Bar Cart Style! (Updated)

14 Mar

Hallelujah, I have finally finished styling my bar cart! I didn’t know exactly how I wanted to style it when I first started, all I knew was that I wanted a gold cart with 3 shelves. I started brainstorming and decided on a mostly pink and gold palette. As far as what to put on the shelves, I had to have a cute ice bucket and a pitcher with roses, everything else came to me as I went along. Bar carts are popping up everywhere and for good reason!  They are a fun way to showcase your personality and style, while being totally functional at the same time. When I have people over, my cart will be put to very good use. I love fresh flowers, pink and gold- my bar cart is all of that and more. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement!

  Now, let’s get to the important stuff…..where did I find everything and how much did I spend?

Let me start by saying if you google ‘bar cart’ right now, you will quickly notice that they can be upwards of $500+!! For the cart alone! BEFORE you style it with all your fun trinkets, alcohol, mixers etc. Let me also tell you that if you really look, you CAN FIND AN AFFORDABLE CART! Check out these Prices below…..I spent under $300 for everything pictured including liquor and mixers.

*Bar Cart $150( I got it on sale for $119), Ice Bucket with tongs $30, silver cocktail spoon $3, Silver muddler $5, glass fruit bowl $2. All from Cost Plus world Market.

*Pitcher/Vase $8 at Home Goods.

*Crystal Decanters $40(I got them on sale for $20)each at Macy’s

*Corkscrew and shaker I already had, but you can find them at Bed Bath & Beyond.

*Mason jar $1, pink straws $5, Glass sugar bowl with lid $4, Key shaped bottle opener $4 all  from Target.

*Hand stamped decanter tags $10 each at Etsy shop Seize the night designs.

*Booze and mixers all from Total Wine

*Roses $7 at Trader Joes

 

Styling tips: Stick to 2-3 main colors. Fresh flowers are always a good idea and I really love the look of fruit as well. Fill the shelves, but don’t overpack them. Make it your own, add personal touches.

UPDATE: Pink sugar cubes have arrived and are in the tiny glass bowl with lid, I also purchased teeny tiny tongs from Crate &Barrel.

My Bar cart is complete!!!!

Custom sugar cubes available at Etsy shop Heather Holidays.
