How to Style a Fall and Winter Table

This week, I was so honored to have been invited to speak at the Dhahran Women’s Group about my blog and my styling process! It was my first speaking gig, which I was super nervous about, but the crowd was so amazing that I felt right at home. I’m just so happy that someone thinks I’m worth […]

Guest Post: Eid Entertaining

Eid is all about entertaining! You’re either going to big events, having a big event, or entertaining a steady stream of people that come by the house over the holidays.

Exterior Door Makeover!

I have 2 entrances to my home, and one of the entrances was just plain ugly. Luckily, I was able to change my “other” exterior door into a nice glass door. It looks beautiful and lets in a lot of light, but because this side is a little more visible to the public, a glass door wasn’t […]
