All I Want to Do is Bake & Watch Christmas Movies with eBay

I don’t know about all of you but December hits (OK, maybe even in November) and all I want to do is bake and watch Christmas movies. I think it’s another reason I put my holiday decorations up so early bc I want to be able to enjoy all the things as much as possible when the holidays hit. One Christmas tradition we do every year, that was passed down by my Dad and his family before him… is make vintage-inspired Christmas cookies. My dad moved permanently to his Utah house last year, so we’re carrying out the tradition here without him. The cookies are named after his mom, my {middle} namesake “Lulu’s Christmas Cookies” (my middle name Louise, which was her name, and everyone called her “Lulu). I’m so grateful to have eBay to find all of the vintage accessories and tools I need to make these traditional cookies that are so special to us!

Closet Reveal with CBD & NEAT Method Tampa

Hey y’all! Welcome to the reveal of my closet with Closets by Design and NEAT Method Tampa! Keep reading for a discount with both companies specifically for Luv, Bec followers!

 This project was one of my favorites to-date because it was SO necessary for my sanity level. In our last home, J and I had separate closets and mine alone was almost the size of the one we now share. (Honestly, it was almost a deal-breaker but we wanted so badly to live in this neighborhood, so I overlooked it.) Over the years of living here, our closet just got more and more out of control, and it got to a point where I honestly didn’t even know what to do with it anymore. Even though I regularly clean out my closet, as a fashion blogger, I’m adding to it so often and it feels almost impossible to keep organized. I knew we needed a better system and I KNEW I needed some help…

Dakota’s Nursery Reveal- Sponsored by The Mine, A Lowe’s Company

Here it is… The LONG-AWAITED nursery reveal! I promise I wanted to have these photos posted to you months ago, but as you know (if you follow along) things kinda haven’t gone as planned through this pregnancy journey of mine. BUT… we won’t discuss that again. (Search through my old Insta posts if you’re confused what I’m talking about.)

Speaking of not going as planned, this Instagram post was originally sponsored by The Mine, A Lowes Company. The plan was obviously to link all of the items to their site (as they are my FAV one-stop-shop for all things home! And I’m NOT just saying that because I work with them… I LUV’d them long before they were a partner of mine!) Here you can see the original design I created for the nursery. Unfortunately, during the time lapse between when we ordered all of the furniture and now, The Mine is no longer a stand-alone company. Their parent company (Lowe’s) is now transitioning all of their brands to their one Website. Which is GREAT in terms of efficiency of shopping all the brands under one roof. AND Lowe’s is a company we all know and trust, so it’s an extra stamp of trustworthiness for people who already respect this brand. HOWEVER, the brands have not yet all been transitioned to the Lowe’s Website, so these items are not yet shoppable with them as of yet.

Having said all of that, they have been extremely understanding of wanting to get you guys shoppable links, whether with their brand or not, as we all understand you’ve been waiting on this reveal for far too long. So… for now… I’m linking all of these items for you wherever I could find them online. I also tried to find the items wherever they were the best price. If and when Lowe’s picks these items back up, I’ll DEFINITELY update you guys and give you some new links. I’d like to sincerely thank my partners at The Mine AND Lowes.com for working with me on this project and for all they did to help me find these items. (One example: the crib was on backorder FOREVER and they jumped through hoops to find one for me all the way around the world… and I LUV IT, so I’m super, super grateful!)

Lastly, I want to thank Bianca Merrell Photography for these GORGEOUS photos she captured of Dakota’s new room. This was my first time working with Bianca, but I promise you it won’t be my last. I’m OBSESSED with her light, bright photography skills and her style works perfectly with mine. If you’re in the Tampa Bay area, I HIGHLY recommend Bianca. Check out more of her work on her Instagram and Facebook.

So, without further adieu…

My Cozy-Time Necessity and How I Plan to Get Organized in the New Year– with Yankee Candle from Walmart

This time of year I almost ALWAYS have a candle lit when I am home. Something about having the tree lights on and having a candle burning just makes everything feel that much cozier. Whether I want the scent of something sweet (like I have a tray of cookies in the oven) or something crisp (because I absolutely LUV to have a clean house with a clean-scented candle lit), it just creates a sense of calm that makes me feel cozy and warm. Yankee Candles are pretty much the superior ranking when it comes to  all candles. And you probably don’t have to just take my word on that, as almost everyone in America has either owned or been around the scent of a Yankee candle at some point, so you probably know what I’m talking about.

Not all candles can disperse a scent throughout a large space, and I’ve always found that Yankee candles just have that power. I can light a candle in the kitchen and still smell it in the living room. I just LUV the power of their scents. Since you know I’m all about finding a deal, I’ve rounded out for you some of my favorite Yankee scents at one of the most affordable places to order them… the place where you can always find a deal… Walmart, of course! The everyday prices are already lower than many other retailers AND they have FREE shipping options right now!

Shop some of my favorite Yankee Candle scents at Walmart:

As the holidays quickly come and go, I really LUV to stock up on scents that I can use year-round. As soon as the holidays end, I can’t wait to get my decorations down, so that I can organize and rethink my decorations for the new year. I typically like to purge this time of year and really clean out things that aren’t serving a purpose or bringing me happiness. Lighting a crisp scent while I clean and organize really seems to get me inspired. Can anyone else relate?! My very favorite scent to use year round, especially when the holidays end and I’m doing my New Year/Spring cleaning, is Yankee Clean Cotton Scent.

You won’t believe the everyday deals they offer on Yankee scents at Walmart! And right now, they’re offering FREE 2-DAY SHIPPING* on tons of your favorite scents, so it’s the perfect gift to order your friend, mom, sister, mother-in-law or as a hostess gift because it will arrive quickly, AND this makes it super affordable! Whether you order my favorite scent, Clean Cotton, or any other scent… your gift is sure to be a hit! I can’t imagine a person on the planet who wouldn’t LUV to receive a Yankee Candle.

Also… some of my favorite holiday scents at Walmart:


*Order by December 19 and get FREE SHIPPING on select items before Christmas. Order online by December 23 at 4 pm and pick up in-store as late as 12/24.
