Luxe Lifestyle: Favorite New Purchase: GLO Whitening Pen

While standing in line at Sephora this weekend, I fell victim to a counter impulse purchase.  A Sephora staffer walked up to us in line, and decided to demonstrate the GLO teeth whitening pen in front of us all as if we were in such desperate need of a little whitening.  After watching her literally paint her teeth and discuss her newly freshened breath, I smiled, a little self-consciously, setting a mental reminder to use some white strips when I got home.
But last minute I remembered why I was in that line in the first place! Buying last minute necessities for our trip to Napa Valley this week! And if a trip filled with daily wine tastings (hello, purple teeth!) doesn't call for a teeth whitening pen to be stashed in your purse, I don't know what does!

Has anyone ever used this? Let us know how it is!
Have a wonderful week Luxe readers! We will be back next week with lots of photos of our trip! xo

Luxe Decor: Black and White Checker Board Flooring

Lately I've been dreaming of black and white marble checker board flooring in our "sun room".   I know it's a that I'd have to be sure I wanted to live with for a very long time. But also, the sunroom flooring project is not currently at the top of our "to do" list.  
But look how beautiful it would be!
Maybe one day.

Happy Birthday Hank!

Hard to believe that a whole year has gone by since we welcomed Mark Henry into this world! The past year has truly been one of the hardest, yet most rewarding learning experiences of my life.  Persevering when you want to give up (hello, nursing), accepting there are things you cannot change and it's OK (hello, nursing, I'm talking to you again), relearning time management, overcoming fear of trips to the grocery store, accepting that accidents will happen and that baby proofing is an evil necessity (my coffee table has been wiped clean of d├ęcor for a good four months).

Mark and I struggled at times to find our way as new parents, but ultimately all of the struggles were overcome with the joy of seeing our baby grow and change every single day. Each day gets better and better as we grow together as a family. Go back in time and revisit my journey creating his nursery, read the story of how Hank made his entrance, or simply click on the video below for a snapshot look into our past year!

Luxe Lifestyle: Favorite New Purchase: Converse Sneaks

This week I'm loving my new (old school) kicks that just came in the mail!

Chuck Taylor's have been around forever...I even rocked some hot pick high tops in kindergarden... But lately they seem to be more current than ever.  I'm loving them paired with anything from shorts, to day dresses, sweaters & jeans and even leather pants!

More details on all of my new furniture, including befores and afters, to come!

Luxe Fashion: Wide Brim Wool Hat

I've never considered myself much of a hat person, but the past year it seems hats have been at the top of the trend list, and I've found myself changing my tune.  The classic panama hat has carried me through the summer months and with the change of season, it looks like the wool wide brim hat/fedora seems to be taking its place!
Like many trends lately, I imagine we can attribute this one too to Rachel Zoe.  She is the queen of rocking a wide brim hat!
