Erin Condren Virginia Store Tour & Haul





 Today I take you along with me as we visit the new Erin Condren store in Fairfax Va!  I have been a planner girl since forever ago and Erin Condren Life Planners have been my Go To organizer since 2014.  The store is located in the Mosaic District in Fairfax VA just outside of D.C. and about an hour from my house. 


 It was so exciting to be able to experience first hand all the products that I have only seen on line.


  The store is beautiful and decorated in Erin's signature bright colors.  



It had areas for planner meet ups or just little spots to sit and visit.


This is the only Erin Condren store in Virginia and it featured some exclusive Virginia merchandise that is exclusive to this store.  

I have always loved the positive message that rings throughout Erin Condren's products; Life is to be lived intentionally and celebrated!


I have scheduled many new planning videos in the new year, planning is a part of my everyday life and I feel is one of the greatest organizing tools.  To save $10 on your own Erin Condren Life Planner use this LINK

Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our 2018 Holiday Home Tour!  I have finished decorating and I am so excited to share it all with you!  Christmas is such a special time that it is appropriate to deck the halls to your heart's content!  



This year I have gone in deep with the red and black buffalo check and that sweet red truck with the tree in the back!  Pine trees are a theme this year as well as galvanized metal! 


 The foyer greets you with bright reds and garland strung up the stairs with pine cones, little red birds and beautiful buffalo checked bows!



Wreaths have always been one of my favorite ways to add a bit of the season through out the house.





Take a tour in the video below!  Christmas is one of my favorite seasons and decorating to celebrate the holiday is a beautiful way to welcome family and friends!


                                     

 Thank you so much for visiting today!  I encourage you to not worry so much about checking "To Dos"  off your lists and spend as much time as possible making memories with your families!

Christmas Time is Here!

Hello Friends!

Christmas time is upon us and December is flying by!  How lucky are we that we can jump into the hustle and bustle of our days. Preparing for this special time with friends and family!  Through these busy days in December, I remind myself to be in the moment with my children and in the moment with my family.  These days are fleeting and it’s so important to choose the memory and not the “To Do”.  The house will get decorated, the cookies will get baked and the presents will get wrapped. Take the time to be present and enjoy this time with those you love!

Here is a little simple decorating motivation to create a beautiful back drop for your holiday!
