Bedroom Inspiration

Last week I shared some living room inspiration with you all and I wanted to come back today with the bedroom inspo! I have had a clear vision for this room since before I even thought about moving. Unlike our living room where everything is pretty much staying, our entire bedroom is changing except for the headboard which is studded and I love!! Everything else is going to be new!! We both really want the space to be relaxing & calming so the colors are going to be very muted...with a few pops here and there.

A Day In The Life | My Bold Moments

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MyBoldMoments #CollectiveBias

Back in October I shared a day in the life of what a regular work day was like. Well I thought it would be fun to share an updated day in the life since my days have evolved a lot in my job. These day's I'm a lot more vendor / client facing and with that change I know that I not only need to look put together, but actually be prepared for whatever get's put in front of me. I'm taking you along with me for the ride...

Friday Five | Blogging + Shopping

Happy Friday friends! Another work week bites the dust and we're headed into the weekend! If you follow me on Snapchat (@blovedboston) I asked for opinions on which purse to purchase (remember this post when I said I needed another bag like a root canal) - whelp I got another one because I ended up having to have a tooth fixed so there you go and I'm excited since it's getting delivered today! Decided to go with the Regan Satchel which is way different than anything I own! Anyway, on to today's post - I wanted to share 5 Mistakes I made when I first started blogging and my 5 picks from the Nordstrom Sale - things that I can't wait to arrive! Linking up with Amanda to share!

We're Moving | Living Room Inspiration

So you may have guessed from the the title of the post - We're Moving!! After 5 years in our current place, we are so excited for this change into a newer and bigger place! With that comes new furniture, new layouts & most of all planning! If you know anything about me, then you know that I've been planning, note taking and preparing for this since we decided to move! For the next few weeks I'm going to share my inspiration room by room - not to worry - there are only 3 so let's start it off with the living room!

Weekending | Being Touristy

Happy Monday friends!! What a whirlwind weekend - I'm pretty sure my feet are in a permanent state of "please don't walk anymore," but my heart is so full because I spent the weekend having an amazing time with one of my best friends!

Friday Favorites | Halfway Through July

Happy Friday friends!! My best friend Rachel and her husband are coming to town for a visit, so there will be lots of walking and eating! I feel like I'm a pretty good tour guide at this point and it always get's me super excited to try out some new restaurants! Linking up with Amanda to share some of my favorites from this week. 
Snapped this picture during a midday walk - it was hotter than I could have imagined, but still gorgeous!

Summer Favorites | Accessories

If I'm being completely honest with you, I'd have to say I like shopping for accessories (including makeup) way more than clothes - maybe it's because with accessories I never worry about sizes - I'm happiest shopping for a new makeup palette, purses or earrings. I wanted to share a few of my favorite summer accessories - especially since there are so many epic sales happening right now, well know the ones!

The Only One Q&A


Happy Monday friends!! Highlights of the weekend include getting a much needed hair cut, girl's night with a great friend & discovering a new show on Netflix!! All of that left few opportunities for photos, so as I was reading this month's Instyle, I decided to do their cover quiz and try a little something different for this week's Monday post. It's the if you could only choose one...

Friday Favorites Round Up

I have to say - I could get behind a 4 day work week because it absolutely flew by and I'm not minding one bit that we are ready for another weekend! After the last few days, I'm pretty excited that not much is on the agenda! Linking up with Amanda to share some favorites from the week!

Get Shorty | Riviera Shorts

Finding a pair of shorts that fits you well, doesn't ride up & you actually feel somewhat covered up in, is like finding the holy grail. That for me is the Riviera shorts collection from Loft. With fun patterns, a reasonable length and inseams that range from 2 1/2" to 6" - this just might be the perfect pair of shorts! I never intended to do a fashion post while on vacation in Maine, but when you happen upon the most perfect location and you feel like you're wearing an outfit that can be recreated easily - you lovingly ask your husband to snap some photos!

Friday First Impressions

Happy Friday and Happy July! A workday stands between me and the lake for a relaxing Fourth of July weekend!! This Friday I thought it would be fun to share three new things and my first impressions on them. I got the idea from YouTube "first impression" videos and hopefully the next time I plan one of these out there will be a video to accompany it - but for now, pictures will have to do!
