    Fall Wardrobe Must Have’s

    “I am so glad I live in a world with Octobers.” -L.M. Montgomery 

    I am a Southern California girl, born and raised! So for me Fall looks a bit different.

    My main goal during a Southern  California Fall is to dress in layers! Lot’s and lot’s of layers!

    It can be 50 degrees in the morning and them by afternoon 78 to 80 degrees. So a sweater or a jacket is a must for the morning and then I can strip down to simple tee or tank in the afternoon and right back into the jacket or sweater in the evening! It’s complicated living here!

    Here are a few of my favs for Fall. Whether you are facing the cold or layering up like me for temperature changes, these are some great basics for the season.

    Enjoy your Fall season my friends!

    xoxo, Alycia



    Coffee Table Makeover

    You know you are a hoarder when…

    I recently got new couches for our living room and we all know when you change one thing in your home it can lead to changing more and more things. Well that is 100% the case here. The coffee table we perviously had would no longer work in the space, it was all wrong! I needed something with much cleaner lines and longer length. So of course I hit the internet, doing what I do best, online shopping! I was coming up with some great options, but hadn’t narrowed it down to the winner yet. Thank goodness, because that same weekend we cleaned out the garage and to my(hoarder) surprise I found the perfect coffee table right in my own garage! I probably shouldn’t be admitting this to you all, but hey you are all friends and I can’t be the only one who hoarders furniture. Please tell me I am not alone, I’m not right?

    Dinning Room Chairs Round-Up

    Its my birthday on Saturday, May 12th! Yep I am a Taurus. True to my sign~ stubborn as heck and persistent to the ends of the earth!

    The good thing (and sometimes bad thing) about being persistent is that I will never back down from a search. I am the queen of finding the perfect item! Whether it be the perfect face cream, the perfect dress for that wedding you have to attend, or the perfect gift for the new baby, I am your girl! I won’t stop till I have found it!

    So, in honor of my birthday and my birthday present (dining room chairs) I have scoured the internet for the cream of the crop of dining room chairs and thought I would share them with all of you friends!

    Playroom Re-Fresh: From Drab to Fab

    This playroom re-fresh has been on my mind for a while now, I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to tackle it, but now that it is finished I am so glad we did.

    Side note…how lucky are kids these days (Wow that dates me)!

    They get their own playroom? I don’t know about you, but my brother and I had a “play closet” aka the downstairs coat closet that housed our toys.

    Now here I am with a very lucky (ok spoiled) little three-year-old boy who has his own room to house his very extensive collection of toys. This guy over here. Should have changed it to mama’s office! Oh well too late!
