a favorite product | cariPRO Ultrasonic Electronic Toothbrush + giveaway!

this post was sponsored by smile brilliant . thank you so much for supporting this blog
you may remember when i tried (and loved) smile brilliant's teeth whitening system? it worked extremely well and so i am very excited to share that they have now expanded beyond teeth whitening.  in addition to specializing in teeth whitening, they have developed the cariPRO ultrasonic electronic toothbrush. my husband has used an electronic toothbrush for years, but i was good (thought i was good) with a regular manual one. well, until i tried this product. after the first brush, i was hooked.

a new journey | olive june market

the sun is starting to set for the day as i sit to announce a special new journey with you all. when parks was itty-bitty, just a few months old, i was taking a walk with him around our neighborhood when i felt a future endeavor come upon me. a dream to one day share my love for re-using items- vintage and thrift finds- with others in the form of a market.  i love nothing more than to curate our home with seasonal rhythms and with timeless, vintage finds. more than anything, i hope to inspire others with old pieces; pieces that thoughtfully tell a story and bring renewed character to a space.  

today, i opened up a shop over at trouvaille market. being able to join and collaborate with like-minded women has already been such an inspiration, a light.  i instantly felt a connection with many and am so honored to be joining them today. 

gift ideas | stockings for babies + toddlers

lately, the air in our home smells of fresh pine and the earth seems to wear magic so effortlessly. i have been decorating our house slowly this year and have been listening to the carpenter's, frank sinatra, and kenny and dolly 'a christmas to remember' on repeat for days. a huge part of me is already mourning the coming of january. although that is always exciting; a clean, new and fresh beginning.

i am savoring every moment of this month; embracing the season.
