welcome back for another week and a new handmade holiday giveaway! so excited about this one, because i love when i'm able to team up with new talent to share. this sweet spirit is phaedra, founder of bohemian harvest ... a lifestyle curator ... and a maker of handcrafted goods. she is here today to give one lucky reader the chance to win a $50 store credit to shop her collection!  i'm a huge fan of her newly opened etsy shop and have one of her wall hangings sitting pretty and adding a bohemian vibe to our home.  her designs are minimal, yet stylish, and can provide the perfect backdrop to style that wall you have yet to find anything for. and just so you know, she creates custom hangings as well and offers a selection of organic earthen goods, including lip balm, face mask, and dried herbal tea.

this giveaway is open to US residents only.  continue on to enter (after the jump) and remember all entries will be verified so play fair and good luck!

ps//thanks friends for supporting small businesses that help support me and thank you phaedra for being so generous and spreading some holiday love!

peace to your heart.


chocolate bark//a stylish little lady

you may remember this chocolate bark recipe i shared awhile back and i thought it should make another appearance (along with other recipes) just in time for your thanksgiving day feast.  this year, i'm in charge of making desserts + mac 'n cheese.  needless to say,  this post will be short and to the point.  i'm off to shake, bake, chop, dice, season, pour, measure, and adore all things tasty.  let's just hope all can be contained and trails of sugar, flour and other messy baking things can be cleaned up before the hubby gets home.

now on to those recipes ...
perfect salads to accompany that holiday bird found here and here.
easy dips for all your crackers and chips.
use rosemary to season your turkey or dressing and any leftover can be used to make these easy napkin rings.
maybe a quick banana blueberry bread to start your thanksgiving morning.  or perhaps sub out the bananas + blueberries and use pumpkin instead.
and for all that leftover turkey, try your hand at this easy pot pie.

thank you all for being so kind and taking a little time out of your day(s) to stop by for a visit.
happy thanksgiving friends! i'll be back on monday with another handmade holiday giveaway!

peace to your heart.

hello there friends.

are you keeping warm and enjoying the anticipation of the holidays?  things have been a bit rainy in our neck of the woods (not to mention cold) and well, i must say, these boots from joules have been the best for trekking around town and i'm sure they will be even better once the snow and slush arrive.  i'd been on the hunt for a pair of rain boots for awhile now, and i love how these are not only stylish, but well crafted and full of detail. not to mention, they can be worn with just about anything.

you can see their selection here.  and while you're at it, they have a collection of jackets, coats, and parkas that would go great with your boots too.

peace to your heart.

*full disclosure here ... this post was sponsored by joules.  all opinions and thoughts represented are my own.  and i can say, these are some well made, good lookin' boots. check out their site.  you may find a pair too!


taco fever//dese'rae stage
just so you know ...

i have a love affair with tacos.  but not just any tacos.  they have to be from an authentic mexican joint and made simple ... meat, lettuce + some cheese.  no extras.  that's it.

i rearrange things (alot).  and sometimes it may take days (or weeks) before my husband even notices. maybe one day he will come home and things will be just as he left them.  my guess is ... not!

i love twinkle lights.  all year round is cool with me.  right now i have a string on a plant that somehow grew its way up to our ceiling and another set on our baby christmas tree we are trying to grow to be just as big.

my favorite color is black.

i eat alot of veggies and i love to eat beets. maybe gross to some, but an afternoon snack for me.

my husband calls me piglett ... yes, you know, winnie the poohs friend. not my first choice for a nickname, but he feels it's appropriate given the amount of food i ate on a date with him once.  yes, there's no shame here ... i was hungry!

why is this turning into a food post?  maybe that nickname applies after all.

i love vanilla candles.

my favorite number is 9.
