Celebrity Style: Elle home feature

I saw this feature in Elle Decor and had to share it with you. Ginnifer Goodwin is a doll, first of all. Anyone with me... Something borrowed?!

And her home, is nothing short of perfection!
Loving these colors, patterns and beautiful framed collage wall.
This look is so effortless. Chic, shabby and historic all in one.
“I want, walking in, to feel like it’s the kind of place where people stop by unannounced
and it’s hard to get them to leave.”
-Ginnifer Goodwin

See and read more here.
You'll fall in love with her and this space even more!

 And lastly, today is the last chance to enter the Valentine's Day giveaway!
Winner will be announced in tomorrow's post!

Last week I featured J. Crew's fabulous 40% off sale. I didn't want to leave out its sister store, Madewell, who also happens to be having the same 40% off sale items promotion going on!

All items shown are on sale and with the code: love40, you get an additional 40% off!

Happy Hunting!

Fur Favorites

I don't know if its the freezing cold weather in general in Dublin, the snow the past couple of days here or just the fabulous look of faux fur that I am loving... but these get ups are calling my name!

Emering in Ireland

I am coming back to life here on the blog... slowing but surely.

Sometimes you just need a break, time to re-adjust and rekindle the motivation and love to blog.

I have done just that.

We arrived in Dublin, Ireland just before New Years. Before jetsetting across the world though, our life was a complete whirlwind! We found out we were set to leave one week prior. That meant scheduling our renters, packing up our entire house for storage and moving out... all over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We were out of our house the day after Christmas and flew to Ireland the very next day. So surreal!

When we arrived, the next step was finding a home. We stayed in a hotel for the first week or so, on a mad search for an apartment. (BTW, if find yourself vacationing here The Westbury hotel is lovely and perfectly located.) While hotel living is fun, living out of a suitcase is not ideal. Thankfully we found a fabulous apartment, on a lovely street, but still close to all the hustle & bustle of the busy Dublin streets.

A recent 'gram of our doorstep

So far, Dublin has been absolutely amazing! The streets are gorgeous and the people are so friendly. The weather is a bit colder and more brisk than home, but we've managed to bundle up and bare the cold. Everything we need is within walking distance, so we've been forced to brave it out. And what's more romantic that roaming the streets together, exploring our new home?!

Thanks for sticking with me!
I truly love this blog and all of my sweet followers. Xo
