Five Friday Favs

Friday, January 27, 2017

I hope everyone had a good week!

I'll be honest I feel like there's not a lot going on right now!

I think the in-between Christmas and Spring is a hard time to decorate if you ask me!

And when I think that Christmas has only been a month ago, its so hard to believe! It feels like its been 6 months ago!

My first Fav will your home smell wonderful!

The orange/citrus scent is not overpowering and leaves your room smelling fresh and clean!

I use it when I'm cleaning up the dishes in the evening, and it immediately takes away all the food odors in the kitchen away!



I'm so in love with these bar stools you really have no idea! I have to say that I feel like I'm moving away from the farmhouse style. Now before you get all, what is she saying?  

Hear me out! I just feel like its really being over done!

Don't get me wrong,  I love some farmhouse touches here and there. But IMO I've noticed it being used way too much! #chipandjojooverload!

Which brings me to my bar stools that I have in my kitchen which are ...Farmhouse

So these are what I have in mind!

They would look so classy and clean in my white kitchen with their touch of grey!


This is in no way a sponsored post by Serena & Lily but if they'd like to send some of these products my way...I wouldn't mind! ;)

I mean how cute are these little dip dyed stools? Cute! I would love one for my bathroom! To stack towels on or a pretty plant, or to help my little granddaughters brush their teeth!


These beauties are from the Northwest and they are between 10-13 inches long! I bought mine through Amazon and they came clean and each one was nicely wrapped. I placed them in a wooden crate and they make the perfect winter decor.


Now if you're on Instagram, you have seen the craze over wooden beads!  They are like jewelry for your home, giving your home a found look with texture for styling!

They look beautiful around an old vintage bottle like this one from Pottery Barn!


Or casually lay them across some books for a simple style!

Hope your weekend is amazing!

Five Friday Favs

Friday, January 20, 2017

Where has the week gone?

I feel like this week has flown by, and I'm okay with that!

We had our little granddaughters 4th birthday this past weekend, and it was so much fun!

She's growing up to be such a sweet, and kind little girl and not to mention beautiful!
(No bias here!)

I hope you enjoyed last weeks list of FIVE FRIDAY FAVS!




If you haven't tried the BEEKMAN BOYS line you really don't know what you're missing!

They are two NYC guys who bought a farm and are sharing their experiment in living better lives!

They produce soaps and cheese along with other mercantile from their own beloved goats!

You can feel confident that you are buying an all natural, quality product!


You know how you remember the first time you rode a bicycle, or your first kiss??

Well I can still remember the day that I discovered MRS. MEYERS
(Weird, right?)

We were touring a Southern Living Dream home and they had it on their kitchen sink, and the woman working there forced (just kidding, no forcing needed) to try it!

Well, it was love at first sniff! My favorite part of cleaning up the kitchen at night, is using the Mrs. Meyers counter spray! It really eliminates all cooking and food smells!

I pretty much have all of their cleaning, hand & body, laundry and candle products! My favorite of all time is Orange Clove! Followed by Basil, Lemon Verbena, Lavender (For Laundry, Heaven!) and Geranium!


I realize this is a generalized fav! Because I don't have one favorite fur item from one favorite store!

I just love fur!

Throws, pillows, stools you name it,  I'm in!

Fur is great for the question of, "Now that Christmas is over, how do I decorate until Spring?"

Because fur just says, "Winter!"

Warm, cozy and inviting! You don't need a ton of it either, so its not a huge investment!

A throw, or a couple of fur pillows for your couch is all you need to get the look!


Now some of you are like JuJu what??

But if you are a regular on Instagram, they are EVERYWHERE! 

And I'm a regular! 
(FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @thedailynest) <---Click Here!

I just love mine! I found mine on ETSY at a shop called, OLDWORLDSHOPPE. 

A Juju hat is a beautiful wall decor feather headdress that are handmade by artisans. They've existed for hundreds of years. These vibrant hats were used by the tribes royals and other prominent dignitaries for tribal ceremonies.

But now they have made it to main stream and are considered a piece of art. They've been featured in numerous home design magazines, television shows, movies and showcased by a few well renowned interior designers...and just little ole me!


It was always a dream of mine to own a horse!

 In fact the other day I had the bright idea to get a mini horse! They are absolutely adorable! But without the need for space or high maintenance of a full size horse.  Sadly, it will probably never happen! Another pipe dream of mine, squashed! 
(Cue Debbie Downer face!)

The closest thing I'll probably ever have to a horse, is a horse print!

Close, right? Not even! But I'll just have to make myself happy for the time being!

I took some great photos when we traveled this past fall of some beautiful horses!

 I'm in the process of having them printed. I'll frame them and hang them, and look at them and DREAM!

Five Friday Favs

Friday, January 13, 2017

Welcome to Friday my friends!

My favorite day of the week!

I've decided to start a new series on the blog called...

~Five Friday Favs~

Every Friday I'll pop on and give you my five favorite things that I'm crushing on right now!

Quick, fast, and just in time to go weekend shopping!

And it could be my favorite cleaning products, or my favorite makeup...Who knows!

Maybe you have a wedding to go to that weekend, or its your best friends birthday, and you have no idea what to buy for them. Or possibly you want to buy something just for yourself!

(Its okay, its allowed!) :)

The guess work is done for you!

I'll post links, prices and where you can find these fabulous items!

Sounds fun, right?

So let's get this party started!

The first fav is this Levtex Drum Basket from Nordstroms. And can I say...

 I. Love. This. Basket!

It comes in three sizes, (Small, Medium, Large) I have the large and it comes with a lid.

I love the chevron straw design!

And baskets are a versatile piece of decor...functional yet stylish! They're great for holding magazines, toys, or anything else you want hidden from the world!

Okay I have to admit that after I took my Christmas stuff down, I was in the mood for some new things! And the boxes were arriving "DAILY!"
(Insert side eye from husband)

And one of those things is this chair right below!

You will be sitting pretty with the Fremont armless chair by Beekman1802 Farmhouse sold at Target!

The stripes are reminiscent of farmers grain sacks but it offers a timeless design and not to mention comfort!

Freemont Armless Chair

Okay this fav is also a timeless design...I'm sensing a trend here!

Large clear candle holders. Plain and simple.

I love the sparkle they give the room in the evening, so cozy and homey!

And I love that you can change them up season after season with little effort or investment.

 Fill them with different kinds of vase fillers and you have a completely different look! I love how the candle holder is placed inside the clear vase to change the look in this photo below.

Or keep them empty, which is beautiful too.

Pottery Barn

Who out there has these flameless candles from Pottery Barn?


 True story. The UPS guy was ringing the door bell one day, and when I opened it, he was literally squatting down with his head eye-level to my lanterns that were by the front door trying to figure them out!

In fact the gold votive in the picture above is also a flameless candle from Pottery Barn. They're perfect for when you don't want to worry about burning say when the grandkids are over!

Now if flameless is not your thing, or if you're like me and still enjoy the ritual of lighting a candle, and of course the scent of a burning candle...

Run, don't walk and get these Nest Candles!

I have the Holiday scent which smells of pomegranate, mandarin, orange, pine, cloves and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and amber!


I'm dying to try the Orange Blossom!

I hope you enjoyed my Five Friday Favs!

Stop by next Friday to see whats on the list!

Have a great weekend!
