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.

Adding Brass Details into Your Home

Brass Inspiration | Sacramento Street

 Images: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six (from left to right)


For a long time I couldn’t embrace the brass trend – I’m a silver and chrome kind of girl. But since the trend looks like it will be here to stay, I’ve be embracing it more and more in my projects and my own home. But the trick, as with any trend, is to strike a balance. Small touches of brass will make a room feel current, not straight out of the ’80s. Whether it’s a beautiful set of candlesticks in your entry or dining room, or adding a larger touch with some hardware – I’m loving it even more.


If you still aren’t certain about this trend – add a small dose of it before changing everything. Once you live with it for a few weeks then decide if you want to invest in larger pieces. Also, consider mixing metals, which is something I have done in my own home. It has lasting power because you’re not putting your investment all in one color.

Layer It: Casual Fall Friday

Layer It : Sunday Brunch | Sacramento Street

One of the many things I love about fall are the soft layers I’m able to pair together. This season I’ve been completely drawn toward cozy plaid flannel shirts. They can be paired with just about any outfit – dressed down for a casual brunch with friends or dressed up for a cocktail party. I currently have two favorites I’ve been coveting – the white plaid shirt above (which now has to be worn unbuttoned due to the growing baby bump) and this Hudson shirt in plaid by Hatch Collection (ladies, this can be worn sans baby bump, it’s so cute!).


Do you have any fall items you’re coveting this season? I want to know!

a brand new week . . .

SinkHappy Monday! This weekend seemed to fly by . . . but doesn’t every weekend feel that way? This is the first weekend where I’ve felt very pregnant – he’s getting to the heavy, awkward, and “I need more room in here mom!” stage. Therefore, I decided to take it a little easy by organizing, decorating and doing more organizing around the house. Yes, I’m in total 100% nesting stage. I basically want to take everything out of each closet and clean it. Did any of you get super into cleaning in the third trimester?


This week there is a lot in store! A brand new layer it post that I can’t get enough of, a trend I’ve been spying everywhere and a super fun giveaway that will surely get you to start thinking about the holidays. Stay tuned friends.


Have a wonderful week everyone!

What’s In Your Fall Handbag?

What's in Your Fall Handbag | Sacramento Street

 

No matter what your budget is, purchasing a new fall handbag is a treat in my eyes. It’s one of those investment pieces that you can keep for years to come. I’ve had some of my handbags since high school and college . I alternate bags throughout the year and they each bring back memories from when made the purchases. A great bag can transform an outfit – so it’s important to take your time finding the best fit for you and your lifestyle.


This season I was on the hunt for a modern, handcrafted, elegant handbag that would be both timeless and functional. As I set out on my search I came across the perfect contender. Cuyana has designed a beautiful cross-body called The Shoulder Bag, made out of the beautiful leather that is so soft you’ll want to use it as a pillow.

My ultimate test for any smaller handbag is that they have to fit all of my essential items. And of course, I had to share with all of you what I’m carrying around in my fall handbag this season. I’m known for carrying quite a bit around with me – you never know what you might need! This Shoulder Bag stood up the the test and I was able to fit every single essential that I carry in my larger handbags. Can you believe it?

Can’t wait to see what all of you will be carrying around this season!
