Bridesmaid Proposal boxes

EEEEK!! It is getting so real you guys! We are 9 months away from saying I Do and there is no way I would be able to say YES without my favorite ladies by my side. I have seen the trend of bridesmaid proposals and I personally think it is so cute especially because I now don’t live anywhere near my bridesmaids (they are spread from NYC to Denver!).

Thankfully there are sites like Teak and Twine! They have a TON of different products from birthday gifts to congratulation boxes. I chose them because you can actually go in and customize each box! I was able to choose a candle, champagne glass and lemon wrapped champagne gummies! Honestly it took me a while to choose because I loved all the options to much. You can check them out here!

If I had to do it again I would try a fun add on like the spicy margarita mix, but there was little I would change about how happy this made me and my bridesmaids!

Small Bathroom Tricks + Tour

Blank Instagram Post.png

Hello lovey human beans! I have a youtube video that just went up with a whole apartment tour but I wanted to go into depth on the bathroom a bit more because I never thought we would survive sharing a small bathroom together on our first go at living together but it has been really ok!

I love how our little space turned out and here are a few things that helped make it work:

Storage can be simple

Don’t overthink it! Pick up dollar store containers for your drawers it helps so much just to separate items out! I also really love using amazon for mine and I have linked some down below that I use in my drawers and in my makeup basket! Also we were lucky to have this sink with drawers that the in-laws picked out and it really helps that we didn’t have to build in spaces!

Maximize space

Above our closet we had a bunch of space so instead of letting it go to waste I found some baskets from target that make it work functional but is also simple and aesthetic! I also used the back of the toilet as some storage for a diffuser and my little basket that holds my cotton pads for my face cleansing.

Add personal touches

Jon and I really love plants and so to us that was the perfect touch. We added in a fake plant that I put on a stand that I found on Etsy as well as a fresh aloe plant with a $1 potter from Home Depot! I also have a little dish that was a gift that I love to put my rings in at night.

I hope you guys enjoyed a new type of post! Thanks to Brooklinen for giving me the inspiration with their GORGEOUS fluffy towels! I just did and IG post for them and you guys can use the code ‘emmaw20’ for $20 off and free shipping!

A California Day in my Gordmans

THIS POST WAS SPONSORED BY SPECIALTY RETAILERS, INC.

Friday in the Sonoma area was one of the best California day. We started out going to a vineyard and watched in a matter of fifteen minutes the fog roll back over the mountains to reveal the most beautiful scene. In my opinion there is very little as beautiful as rolling hills covered in rows of grapes. We toured the grounds which was built in the belief that organic is best (love) and then sat down for a tasting. After that we drove to a bay where we enjoyed fresh crab sandwiches as we saw sailboats coming and going. Nearby there was a beach and as the clouds were coming in just in time for Jon, Erica and I to totally conk out for an hour for the most blissful nap. On our way back to our house we stopped for saltwater taffy. I hope to live this day again and again!

Now for the best part… my outfit. You all know I have talked a lot about Gordmans before - find the posts here and here. I wanted to create a summer look that was easy, breezy and perfect for vacation. I love this skirt because it kept me warm in the morning but the material is very breathable + leopard is a neutral in my mind. I paired it with a white denim jacket that I know I will be reaching for all year long and the cutest new sunnies! All of the items were bought at a serious discount that you can get EVERYDAY at Gordmans!

You can learn more about why Gordmans is your one stop shop for home decor, clothing and more here.

I also have to give a HUGE THANK YOU to my sister Halle who helped me shop for this look!!

Dallas Stay at the Adolphus Hotel

IMG_2937.jpg

24 hours of luxury & history

A peek into our stay with the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas

We had the best time last weekend in Dallas. We were originally going for the Thomas Rhett concert since it is only a four hour drive from Tulsa, but the adopts reached out and we couldn’t believe our luck! We were able to stay in the most beautiful hotel that is SO full of history. According to our bartender (whom I loved) the hotel was built in 1912 and even contains a baby grand piano that was originally a twin but the other one went down with the titanic on the way to the hotel !! so crazy.

Current day though there is so much to see and do right in the hotel. They have an incredible rooftop pool, spa, restaurants, coffee and more. We had brunch at the City Hall restaurant and you all NEED to go to try the cinnamon roll French toast. Overall it was such a nice break and much needed for my mental health.

Oh! and did you see our buddy who came too - the hotel is pet friendly!!
