Setting our Christmas Table with Hearth & Hand from Target

Each year for the holidays I like to add a little bit more to may decor collection.  It’s always fun to add different things here and there to commemorate what was special that year.  This year I am hosting Christmas for the first time at our new home!  Our home isn’t anywhere near being done, but I still want to make it special.  Since we are on a budget (hello, home remodel and a new mortgage!!) I turned to everyone’s favorite store, Target.  

Lucky me, this year they have Hearth & Hand by Magnolia!  I’m sure you are just like me and totally love Joanna & Chip Gaines.  I’ve especially fallen more in love with them since we started remodeling our home.  There are many nights where you will find me in front of the tv, watching Fixer Upper on Hulu working on my computer.  Basically my MO these days!

Well, I also fell in love with their collection they just released for the holidays!  It’s clean, minimal and stylish all in one!  Today I’m sharing some pieces I picked up and how I plan to style them for Christmas.  I am especially thinking it would be pretty for Christmas Day brunch!!

Keep scrolling for all the pretty, and shop my picks at the bottom!

Let’s just go ahead and start with this AMAZING floral arrangement by Lily of Olive & Blooms!  I told her I didn’t want to go the traditional Christmas route, no poinsettias up in here!  But I wanted whites, greenery and soft pinks.  Plus, I really wanted to add in some cotton because it just screamed Joanna to me… Who doesn’t live their life with the motto WWJD?!  J as in Joanna…  So with this beautiful piece anchoring the table, you know we’re in good shape!

Now, I’ll start with the plates.  I really love them!!!  Hearth & Hand has them in black, green and white.  Obviously I went with the green, but was really torn with the black.  But since I had to get the amazing matte black flatware, I thought some contrast would be nice!  The green is just nice for Christmas also, I can see my family using these plates for years to come!

The glassware is also so fun and timeless.  I purchased the wine glass and tumbler in clear.  They also have a pretty green color, but I figured these were easier and could be used more frequently through-out the year!  I love the pretty detail on them…
  For the pretty details I turned to my friend Courtney from Poppy Jack.  I can always count on her to whip up something clever and fun!  Plus, this girl also has an affinity for Chip & Joanna, she even visited Magnolia last month!!!  Color me jealous…

We decided to do some cute stirrers for the glassware in a wood and white color.  We did holiday themed and Magnolia themed, because it just seemed appropriate!  Shiplap was the first to come to mind…

The white and black cross-stitched napkins are up there as one of my favorite pieces in the Hearth & Hand collection.  I added my own velvet ribbon to each napkin for that special touch and because I’m a little obsessed with velvet right now!

Other little details…  I absolutely adore these little wooden houses in the collection.  Have to say, they are my favorite Hearth & Hand piece!  They are currently on my mantle but I had Courtney from Poppy Jack personalize them to use as place cards!  I love having place cards on the table, especially for a special occasion like Christmas.

These ornaments also made the cut.  But instead of using them on the tree, I’m using them on the table!  They play off the napkins well and add another element to the talbescape.


One last look at this festive Hearth & Hand table…

Since I wont’ have this set up till Christmas Day, I am still going to enjoy these goodies!  So I set them up on my mantle, and really love how it looks!  I even got the boys stockings from the collection too!  How sweet does this set up look?!  

Shop all of my favorites from my table and decor below!!

Off the Shoulder Style

 If you haven’t been living under a rock, then you know that the off the shoulder trend is one of this Spring’s top styles. We saw it peak its head last summer, but it’s making its way to the top pick this spring. We are under their spell, and loving every bit of it. A combination of sweet and sexy that has us craving more…. more… more!

Jacquelyn’s Hair by 1011 Makeup

You can shop all our looks at the bottom of our post!

First, we have Jacquelyn wearing this flowy Maison Dress by MLM Label, and this spicy colored number is effortlessly perfect for this spring. Jacquelyn loves this dress cause not only is it timeless and can go from season to season, but it’s also breastfeeding friendly. 

Paired with her favorite spring essentials: Cleobella Mexicana Clutch, suede mules by Matisse, and her trusty Wyeth Eyewear Calyer.

Loving the mini off the shoulder as much as we do? Here are some other numbers we love for this spring.

Next up, I’m wearing this Sheer Bliss Dress by Amuse Society in Black Sands that I bought on Revolve. I love Amuse Society case you find it on Revolve, Amazon, and even at Nordstrom now. The best part is that they are super affordable. Can’t beat that! 

Paired with my Wyeth Eyewear Baxter in Opaque Champagne and Lilac Gladiator Sandals. Yes, I have the same pair in different colors. When you find a sandal at Target that is stylish and affordable, you buy them in all the colors! I also got them when they were having their BOGO sale. 

More flowy floral gems that we have all the heart eyes for!

Now, I really love this little number on Jacquelyn. This embroidered Rebecca Minkoff Celestine top can be worn all thru spring. The eyelet embroidered pattern is also another spring trend, so you are double in style now! To complete the look, pair with some white denim cut-offs, nude sandals, and sunnies. Now you have a spring staple to add to your closet. 

More eyelet off the shoulder tops!

Now, our last look. Let’s just talk briefly about mom jeans. When I was a young little know it all in the 80’s, fluffy bangs and all, I thought mom jeans were worn strictly just to humiliate your child at school pickup. Well, now as a mom I had to give it a try right? It was time to come full circle. Being 5’2 1/2″ (yes! I count that 1/2 inch), there are a lot of styles I just can’t pull off due to the lack of my stems. But, I gave it my all and wore those moms jeans like no one’s business. I have to admit they are comfy. However, the debate is still out on them.

I paired those bad ass jeans with the flouncy Pretty Lady Tee by Free People. A perfect tee to cover that wiggle jiggle arm action I like to hide. I tucked in the shirt for full mom jean effect and paired with my Lilac Gladiators by Mossimo, and Wyeth Eyewear Dilworth sunnies. Easy off the shoulder action attire you can wear everyday around town, or show up to school and embarrass this generation’s know it alls. 

Some other favorite white off the shoulder tees if this one doesn’t tickle your fancy.

Let’s go show off those sexy shoulders, ladies!

Happy Easter Sunday!

Sadly, all the cute Easter bunny ideas are coming to an end today, but that just means its time for Cinco de Mayo inspiration! Yay! It will be here in no time. Yesterday I was on Amazon of all places and found so many fun tees to wear on several days leading up to and on Cinco de Mayo. Today is just round one of all the inspiration we have for this fiesta. Stay tuned! Until then, check out all these cute tees. There are so many fun ones; I kinda want to buy all of them. Eek! 

Mate the Label is one of my favorite lines for cool vintage tees. It is a Los Angeles-based company, and they have a collection of vintage inspired graphics that embody the California-cool lifestyle. Pretty sure between Jacquelyn and I we have all of these. Now that I know they are on Amazon, this might be dangerous for the wallet. 

 MATE THE LABEL WOMEN’S ‘NOT YOUR MAMACITA’ TANK TOP

I just wore this one yesterday! My personal favorite one, it goes with anything. Pair it with some denim and a cool kimono, and you are all set. The color combination of blush, denim blue, and white makes for a perfect spring tank. 

MATE THE LABEL KYLE LONG SLEEVE ADIOS PANTALONES OCHRE

This one is currently in my cart. The simplicity of this cozy long sleeve tee that is made with a super soft fabric is perfect for running around town. Pretty sure you will want to live in this vintage tee. 

MATE THE LABEL WOMEN’S ‘MARGARITAS FOR SEÑORITAS’ NECK T-SHIRT

Calling all margarita lovers! This one is for you ladies! The margarita queen herself, Jacquelyn has this tee, and I’m pretty sure she wears it at least a couple of times a month. When you’re a margarita lover, you gotta let people know what’s up! 

MATE THE LABEL WOMEN’S SPICY TANK

This last one is another one that is in my cart. This vintage muscle tee says it perfectly. Spicy! Add a little spice to your life. 

Did I just make you fall in love with Mate the label? Pretty fun tees, and even better you can buy them through AmazonHave to love Amazon; you seriously can find everything on there, and it will be here in no time. Pat yourself on the back for having your Cinco de Mayo outfit already and Easter isn’t even begun for most of us. Hopefully, my little bunnies sleep in a tad bit longer.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Easter today! Now if you will excuse me, I have some shopping to do while sipping on a mimosa.

Beijos Easter Baskets

It’s our annual Beijos kid’s Easter Basket post and we have some good ones for you!  Every year we try and come up with fun and new creative ideas for our little ones.  Well, now between the 3 of us we have 7 kids!!!  It’s getting tight up in here!  So instead of doing a bag for each of our kids, because seriously who wants to scroll through that novel, we did three categories.  We have a baby basket, a girl basket and a boy basket!  Simple and easy!

Another thing we try to do is find unique baskets, and I think this year’s are the best yet!  We asked our dear friend and soul sister Monica of Boho Pillow to create some boho-dreamy baskets…. And boy did she come through!  Check them out below!!  For more baskets, and just overall amazing stuff, head to her site here!!

Let’s get started with the baby basket I curated!  So, I really tried with all my might to go gender neutral here, but as a true boy mom, it definitely reads more boy…. What can I say, those boys have completely taken over my life, and now my mind!!!  Haha!!  I think the basket is perfectly gender neutral though and would also make a great gift for a baby shower!  You can stuff it full of goodies and the mama to be can place it in her nursery for storage!

Let’s talk about some of my baby Easter picks!  I went with a sort of Lion theme after being inspired by the cutest art piece by my favorite Daniella Manini.  That lion art would look adorable in any kid’s room!  And when I saw the sweet little hand knit lion doll from The Little Market I knew that was where I wanted to go!  Now, every baby needs a good swaddle and Modern Burlap’s are the best.  I love the cloud one because it is cute for both a boy and a girl!  

Cruz is teething like a wild man and I knew I wanted to include a teether.  I could spend hours shopping on Noble Carriage’s site because everything is so darn cute, but what really draws me in is the attention they pay to things being organic and sustainable.  I thought the pretzel teether was the cutest thing ever and the fact that it has natural antibacterial properties is pretty amazing.

Two of my go to brands as a mommy since having both of my boys are Bink & Boo and Wee Vintage Baby.  So it was a no brainer including both of them!!  Bink & Boo has the most adorable little baby booties in all sorts of colors and fabrics.  These striped pair are called the Smith and the retro 70’s vibe of them just caught my eye immediately.  For Wee Vintage Baby I thought her bloomers would be perfect for the upcoming warmer days and I must say, Cruz’s thighs have never looked more delicious.

Lastly, I think taking care of baby’s skin is always a priority so I got a few products from Zoe Organics to toss in.  Bath time is one of my favorite times of the day so I did their baby gift set which includes bath wash, a baby oil and a diaper balm.  All definite essentials for any baby & mama duo!!

Next up, our little Girl Basket!  Abby curated this one for her daughter Dylan… I can only dream of the fun stuff behind a little girl’s basket, still working on the husband on that idea!  But anyhoo…  How cute is the pink basket by Boho Pillow?  I love the fabric she used here!  Now this basket is fully stocked, I think the Easter bunny is going broke this year!! I mean Dylan is one lucky girl!  

Let’s start with the sweetest little bunny doll from Noble Carriage.  Every little girl needs a stuffed bunny on Easter and this one by Hazel Village is the ultimate!!  Did you catch our Easter playdate feature yesterday that had tons of Shop Leo Kids goodies in it?!  Well Abby must have because she is adding a cute little weaving and garland in Dylan’s basket for her room!

Another Easter must have are floral bunny ears from JL Designs.  These are the ultimate Easter accessory!  Speaking of accessories, this little girl’s basket is set with a cute pair of sandals for Spring, heart shaped sunnies, a new raffia bag and cute bracelets (here and here) from our girl Julia at Gunn & Swain.

Abby didn’t stop there, one of our favorite brands to shop for ourselves is Jen’s Pirate Booty so why not match our little ladies by gifting them their own kaftan?  Let’s keep going shall we??  The Easter bunny can’t stop now, he’s on a roll!  A swimsuit is a must have for Spring/Summer, and this cute one piece is so adorable, and also on sale!  To round up this loot, you’ve gotta have a good bunny book!  Definitely an Easter essential!

Now, in my next life I’m coming back as Abby’s daughter, holy moly!

Last up we’ve got the big boy basket that Abby curated for her son Jett!  This basket by Boho Pillow might be my favorite, I love the olive color!  I could definitely see this being used in any home because it’s really such a neutral color!  But my first thought for a boy… Lego storage!!!

Ok, let’s jump right in!  Speaking of Lego’s, Abby found the coolest wooden legos on Amazon!!  Now these are some Legos I wouldn’t mind being left all over my floor and stepping on… Hmm… Maybe I take that back…  Let’s keep going with big boy essentials and add some fun retro cars! Both of these are so cute to put on display or to play with, check them out here and here.

Now, we’ve gotta make sure our boys are looking cute this Spring so let’s talk clothes!  We mentioned our love for Bink & Boo and their baby booties, but you know we also love their Ankle Biters!  The raddest little pant for Spring and Summer!  You might remember from last Summer that our favorite board shorts for our kiddos are by Seaesta Surf, so we had to include them!  Stay tuned, she’s dropping some new prints very soon!!  You can pair each of these bottoms with a rad tank like Abby did!!  And don’t forget the shoes, we always love a good pair of Vans.

Last but not least, some good reading material.  I don’t know about you, but my boys are wild and the one time of day they actually sit and cuddle with me is when I read to them… So, books are a must!!  Abby picked out these three for her little man…  Horton Hatches an Egg, Mr. Tiger Goes Wildand Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

There you have it!!  Another Easter wrapped up for our kiddos, pretty luck ones right?  Now… Let’s start saving for next year’s baskets now, shall we??
