Giveaway: $300 Worth of Minted Holiday Cards!

Minted Giveaway | Sacramento Street

The holiday season is right around the corner – I can taste it! Not only am I excited because our little nugget is set to arrive, but the holiday season is my favorite time of year. There is nothing I love more than the chill in the air, the city glowing with holiday cheer, and seeing the Christmas trees in all of the windows. But what I love most is coming home to a mailbox full of holiday cards.

Each year Eric and I take an evening to sit down and select which holiday card will be gracing the mailboxes of our friends and family. This year, we’re getting a head start by ordering them early with Minted. They just unveiled their 2014 collection that has stunning new designs that are all customizable, they have a foil-pressed option that I can’t get enough of and they feature a free recipient addressing service to make sending your cards that much easier. In my eyes, this is amazing because addressing the cards always takes so much time.

With hundreds of options to choose from this season I wanted to show you a handful of my favorites that I myself am deciding between. Honestly, as I sifted through all of the beautiful options that Minted has to offer I realized that you can’t really go wrong with any of them. Each has a unique quality to it that anyone would love to get in their mailbox.

Happy Fourth of July!

American Flag | Interiors

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday weekend! I took an early start to the holiday weekend with a road trip up to Oregon to visit family and friends. It’s been quite the trip – driving through the mountains, stopping in small towns to antique and winding through farm country. I’m excited to unplug and reconnect with everyone. I hope you are able to do the same!

Going Home for the Holidays

Campbells Homestyle | Sacramento Street

It’s that time of year where all of us are booking our tickets and planning our trips back home for the holidays. This is my favorite time of year – everyone is merry, has a glow about them that is nostalgic and I certainly can’t get enough Christmas music. This year we’ll be staying close to home traveling to Carmel to visit family – but no matter where you are it will always feel like home because of the people that surround you.  One of my favorite parts about being home for the holidays, besides spending quality time with family and devouring the delicious food, is taking time off to enjoy those little moments in life. I make myself completely unplug so I can enjoy my stack of magazines that I haven’t been able to go through in months. It’s amazing how something so simple can rejuvenate your soul and doing all of this with a delicious cup of hot cocoa by the Christmas tree makes it that much sweeter.

What are you looking forward to when you go home for the holidays? Will you be watching a movie marathon that includes The Holiday and Love Actually? Cooking soup with your grandma in the kitchen? Or getting cozy by the fire? I want to hear what you can’t wait to do during the holidays!

Now for the fun part – Campbell’s Homestyle wants to take you home for the holidays. Pin a photo that makes you nostalgic about home and you’ll be entered to win one of fifteen $500 airline gift cards to help you get home. Watch this video to get you inspired and excited to go home this holiday season and be sure to visit from now until 12/16 for a chance to win.

I’m partnering with Campbell’s Homestyle soup this holiday season for the Campbell’s Homestyle Takes You Home Pin It to Win It sweepstakes.

Decking the Halls with Treetopia

Christmas Tree | Sacramento StreetWith Thanksgiving now behind us, it’s time to start decorating the house. It’s my favorite time of year – I love putting on Christmas music, watching Christmas movies (like The Holiday and Love Actually) but most of all, I absolutely love decorating our tree. It’s such a special time seeing ornaments that bring back memories, picking up new ones to fill in the holes and finding the perfect spot to put the new ornaments. Since we’re in a new apartment this year we were finally able to get our first big tree – we’ve always had the type that sits on a table.

This year, Treetopia reached out about testing their artificial Christmas trees. I have to me honest – we’ve always bought a real tree, but last year ours died so quickly that we had to buy a second. So, we decided to give it a whirl and picked out the Addison Spruce tree. What could we lose? Friends, we were shocked with how beautiful this tree is. Plus, with the lights already on it we didn’t have to deal with doing them one or two times over . . . it was always a challenge for us. My other favorite part, when you needed a branch to go one way or another you can just move it and you fill in a hole where you want to place the favorite ornament. It was amazing!

Once we decorated it with out antique silver ornaments it felt just like a tree out of the lot. We placed our faux fur tree skirt underneath and wrapped a few presents that had already been purchased in Smock Paper (my favorite). I’ve never been more ahead of the game before – this is definitely a first! I even  bought a bit of greenery to go around the house and voila, we have the scent of the tree.

If you’ve ever been on the fence to go real or artificial – take it from me, these are beautiful, you don’t have to worry about watering it, and once you get your family ornaments up on the tree, it’ll feel just like every other year. So take the plunge if you’ve thought about it! We are loving it!
