Capir Blue Rose Gold Candle

Candles by Capri Blue | Red Dress | Rockstud Heels | Strathberry Nano Crossbody | Gold Criss Cross Bracelet | Black Sunglasses | Lipstick in ‘Bawse’

Whenever I bring another candle into the house, Matt rolls his eyes. I’ve tried to stealthily order them online and place them in a corner but he always notices. I can’t help it! They make your home feel so cozy. My favorite candle of all time is Capri Blue’s Iridescent Jar Candle (seen here and here). It’s incredibly gorgeous and the smell is so good. So good. When I found out that Capri Blue was the official home fragrance of NYFW: The Shows, I had to have them!

As y’all saw on Instagram, I spent this past weekend in California for my sister’s bridal shower. I can’t believe she trusted me with doing all the flowers! My mom and I woke up early Saturday to make a Trader Joe’s run (how are their flowers always so cheap yet last so long?). After that, I set up shop in my mom’s kitchen with Alexa jamming out to a little country music. A couple hours later, voila! We had 9 gorgeous white and blush pink arrangements for the tables!

One of my favorite things to do every year is plan our holiday outfits. Actually, I like doing this year round and not just specific to the holidays. Now, we’re not one of those couples that likes to match per say. However, I do like to make sure that Matt and I compliment each other in case we take a photo together! For the more casual occasions, this is 30 second conversation when Matt asks me what he should wear. When it comes to things that are more formal, I like to put a few more minute of thought into it. Today’s outfits are a play on some velvet goodies from Marks & Spencer and I love how they turned out!
