This is What Happens at a Pre-Drywall Meeting

Welcome to our future home! To think on January 1, Johnny and I were standing on freshly-poured foundation and now we are in our home with walls, rooms and windows. In case you missed it, we deep-dived into what actually building a new home is like and our journey on this post. Until this phase, everything has been moving quickly and smoothly for the most part. We just had our pre-drywall meeting and want to share exactly what happens at that meeting, how you can prepare and lessons we learned from it.

The Best Pieces I Found from Lacoste for Spring Outfits

THANK YOU TO LACOSTE FOR SPONSORING THIS POST. ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

Spring is around the corner and this is the perfect time to take a look at your closet, purge items you no longer need or wear and make room for fresh items you can wear multiple ways. I love finding pieces you can wear for work and on the weekends and Lacoste’s Motion Collection is full of versatile pieces. Of course, it’s always fun to buy trendy items, but it’s important to think about cost per wear and investing in those items. I’m so excited to share the best pieces I found from Lacoste for spring outfits. There are pieces in this post you can reach for over and over, regardless of the occasion or where you’re heading. Plus, a bright color never hurt anyone.

My Favorite Simple Neutral Nails You’ll Have To Try

Having perfectly manicured nails is something I strive for. I often get asked about my nails and nail color so I want to share some neutral nails you’ll have to try the next time you get a manicure. There’s something so chic and elegant about neutral nails. I love how neutrals go with everything, doesn’t clash and is so flattering on a variety of skin tones. I’m known to rotate between some of my favorite colors, so chances are, one of these colors is on my nails! Also, my nails tend to grow pretty fast, so I try to go in for a manicure every three weeks.
