Everyday Loose Waves Tutorial

So one of my most asked questions still till this day is how do I get my loose waves. I wear this hairstyle almost everyday, its foolproof and way easier then you may think. I made a video a few years back so I thought it was time for an updated video plus share some new products that I can't live without! With summer right around the corner now is the perfect time to try and achieve that messy beachy look. All the products and info used in this video will be linked below!

Home Tour | Part. 2 Master Bedroom + Master Bath

I hope everyone had a lovely little weekend. Man oh man it was much needed... did anyone else think this work week was never going to end. Oh my gosh it was long and yes we had margaritas Monday Night, Thursday night and Sunday... don't judge! Between catching up after the holidays, getting the house back in order, taxes, vacuuming countless amounts of glitter,  you name it.... I am finally getting around to our last home tour post. It might possibly be my favorite place in the whole house... It's our bedroom! I most definitely am a home body at heart there is no hiding that but I secretly would love to pretend to be an on the go city girl… think Carrie Bradshaw meets Anne Hathaway in Devil wears Prada.. but the fact is...  A.) I can't drive in dallas (true story) and  B.) my dog has separation anxiety... hints why I created a career based out of the house. My dreams will just have to continue to come true only underneath these Pottery barn Cotton sheets. I mean who's to say a girl can't dream. But for real, there truly isn't anything better than curling up in your favorite pjs with a warm cup of coffee and the Real Housewives (Beverly Hills or Orange County) on repeat. I included our master bath in this post as well as it is connected to our bedroom. It was in such terrible shape when we moved in (most of the house was) I think the only thing we kept in there was the large soaker tub... like for real the doors were even replaced... it was bad. I will have to put together a before and after post pretty soon because it would blow your minds. Let's just say that there may have a been a hand painted tree mural and about 20 birdhouses involved... I'm not talking about the back yard people. All these things were in this bathroom! So needless to say I'm pretty excited with how it turned out as well! I will link all the details in the bottom bar below! Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!

Cheers to a New Year...

How in the world is it already January of 2016? This past year has flown by so fast but I do have to say that there is always something so inspiring and exciting at the start of a new year. New dreams, new to do lists, new exciting adventures to create and new trips to plan. This past year was a big one for me and Jeremy as we launched The Happy Goose Shop in March. It was something that was a long time dream of mine and with his help and a lot of pushing we finally took the leap and I could not be more happy that we did. It has been so exciting to watch it grow and create new relationships along the way. We finished all our home renovations which was exciting, started new family traditions and threw our first big event for THG shop. I can't wait to see what this new year has in store, I don't think I have ever been more excited to see what's next to come. 2015 was pretty special but as one of my favorite quotes states... "The best is yet to come". I hope you all had a wonderful and safe New Years as well. I'm sharing today another simple winter look from our trip to Colorado. All details are linked below.
