HOME-SPIRATION: Stud Side Up

This week during my internship I have really been helping out our jewelry team a lot. I am loving all the studded looks of the new jewelry line so I wanted to see how I could incorporate these aspects in to interior design! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images with studded details.

HOME-SPIRATION: Antler Decor

So with a freezer full of deer meat and a boyfriend who looks great in camo, I have come to realize that hunting will always be a part of my life. Surprisingly I am okay with this, partly because J.Crew just came out with some adorable camo items! But now that it is almost deer season I am really trying to score some amazing antlers! I found such great home-spiration photos for rustic chic looks involving antlers! Here are some of my favorites…

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Book Lovers Wedding

Everyone loves a good themed party. But I am not really one for themes at a wedding, but I think there are amazing and tasteful ways to incorporate the things you and your future husband love in to your big day. I recently saw photos on my Facebook feed of a book lovers wedding. The couple were two English teachers who had a passion and love for reading and classic literature and of course classic love stories like theirs. Here are a few amazing photos of hints and flairs of a book lovers wedding without having a full on themed wedding.

IN MY KITCHEN: Seared Tuna Pepper Steaks

So I decided to start a new little section on my blog about my culinary adventures (and sometimes misadventures) David and I LOVE seafood so we are always cooking up something new. Most of the time I do a lot of research before I cook up something new so I thought I would share my tips, tricks, triumphs and failures with you guys in this new little section. The first documented culinary experience is Seared Tuna Pepper Steaks.

Here is the recipe I got on Pinterest. Click on the photo above to get more great recipes from New Frontiers Natural Marketplace!

TIP #1 for Seared Tuna Pepper Steaks… when it comes to Tuna, quality is REALLY important!! The best Tuna we have found is at Costco!!

The Costco near our house in Plano gets their seafood in Tuesdays and Thursdays! But check your local grocery store or local Costco to see when they get their shipments in so your seafood is as fresh as possible!

TIP #2 is all about timing. Make sure that you use the timer on your phone or on your oven/stovetop because when you’re cooking seafood a minute makes a big difference! Keep in mind sushi grade tuna (which is what you should be buying) can be eaten raw, and the worst way to serve tuna is over cooked! Our tuna steaks were about 2 1/2 inches thick and searing them for 3 minutes on each side was perfect! If yours are any thinner cook them for a shorter amount of time!

Don't be afraid to be adventurous in the kitchen! Enjoy!

HOME-SPIRATION: Navajo Printed Rugs

I am a firm believer that a rug can change an entire room. They really create a space, they can add color, and make a look feel more polished! We recently got an amazing printed rug for our living room and I am obsessed. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for these Navajo inspired printed rugs!
