On The Hunt: Jams and Spreads

On The Hunt : Jams and Spreads | Sacramento Street

 

This past summer and fall I went through a serious nesting phase while pregnant. I made dozens of canned pickles and jam. Well, I just used the last spoon full of my homemade jam and my heart sank a little bit. Since it’s not berry season I went on a quest to find an alternative because my mornings and snacks would not be completely with either a jar of preserves, jam or honey. There is nothing I love more than a warm biscuit and tea in the morning.

While it’s hard to top homemade these World Market jams and spreads definitely hit the spot. Pop over to their blog to find out which were my favorite, I can tell you one thing my pantry has been elevated to a whole new level.

Press: Jackson’s Nursery Reveal

Today I’m thrilled to finally share Jackson’s nursery with all of you. This project was a labor of love and it all fell into place with ease. I envisioned a peaceful oasis for him to enjoy.


Originally, I had planned to keep the guest bed in the room. However, it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t enough room. I swapped that idea for a low woven bench with a cushion and pillows that is kid friendly that we could use as a reading nook. This allowed for more space to bring in the glider, crib, and changing table.

A nursery has all of the must-haves for a babies room – crib, changing table, chest of drawers. But when designing the nursery I thought about how it could evolve with time. That’s why I purposefully chose items that can change over time as he grows up. For example, the changing tray on the campaign dresser can be removed and it becomes a stunning chest of drawers. The baskets filled with receiving blankets can also function for storing toys. If you think ahead, you can buy items that serve several functions.

On The Hunt: Candleholders

On the Hunt: Candleholders | World Market

Images : 1/2/3/4


In my eyes, you can never have too many candleholders. I use them for just about event dinner party and around our house. They cast a beautiful light that makes dinner parties feel magical and a cozy evening indoors special. There is probably a candle being burned at all hours in our house.


On The Hunt : Candles

1.) Recycled Glass Pillar Candle Holder


2.) Grey Opaque Glass Honeycomb Lantern


3.) Clear Glass Teardrop Lantern Candleholder


As we see a glimmer of hope that spring might be around the corner I’ve pulled together a handful of my must haves for this season that can be used both inside and outside – weather permitting of course! Buy a handful as an excuse to throw a big dinner party with friends. Afterwards you can style them around the house for a new look on your mantle or coffee table.


Check out my favorites over on World Markets blog that will have you inspired to throw a dinner party this weekend!

Layer It: Casually Sophisticated

Layer It : Casually Sophisticated | Sacramento Street

 

When you are constantly on the go, running errands, traveling or taking your little ones to school, it is quite hard to do that in high heels and a pencil skirt (those that can, I give you major kudos). On the other hand, you don’t want to look like you’ve just rolled out of bed. I’ve realized over the past two months that having a few go-to outfits that make me feel likeI’ve pulled myself together goes a long way. It makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something by getting out of my pajamas. An effortless look that is casual and sophisticated will make any women feel amazing.

My favorite look at the moment is skinny jeans paired with any pullover sweater, cross-body handbag and to top it off a pair of cute sneakers. I’m kind of loving these Stan Smith sneakers – I’ve been wearing these almost every day.


Do you have a few favorite things that you love wearing that make you feel put together even when it’s a casual look? I’d love to know!

Whether it’s open shelving or inside a cabinet, I truly believe that if it’s beautifully organized it makes your day that much sweeter. This weekend I’m working on our kitchen and bathroom – these two images are inspiring me.
