“Since our previous home had one bathroom with no counter space, having my own vanity where I can get ready every morning is a total luxury. Instead of keeping all my jewelry hidden away, I display my sparkliest baubles in a pretty silver bowl, alongside favorite photos of my grandparents. These roses were snipped right from the garden and tucked inside my vintage silver baby cup.” Jewelry: Kendra Scott and Banana Republic.
“My favorite thing about my office is the beautiful light that filters in through the big windows and french doors. Every morning, I so look forward to making a cappuccino and settling in at my desk to tackle the days’ emails and upcoming blog posts.” Dress, Lush. Bag, Michael Kors. Flowers, The Byrd Collective. Desk, West Elm. Chair, Aidan Gray. Mirror, Restoration Hardware.

“Since my job demands so many daily emails, the art of letter-writing feels really special to me, and I always have a running list of correspondence and thank-you’s that I try to check off my list at the beginning of each workday. These notecards are from Rifle Paper…I’m obsessed with just about everything they make.”
“Since my office is decorated simply, I love that my zebra cowhide rug adds a fashion-y touch to the room while staying within my company’s signature black and white palette. And it’s such a classic print; I’ll be able to use it forever!” Rug, West Elm.
“I typically veer towards simple cocktails that don’t require loads of ingredients…and I’m a fan of anything with bubbly. These signature sweet tea cocktails are perfect for welcoming guests since they combine southern hospitality with sparkly champagne!”
How do you sparkle?
A big, genuine smile, and the desire to celebrate life’s littlest moments. I always have a bottle of bubbly chilled and at the ready!
