Our Cozy Christmas Corner {Home Décor}

Hello my gorgeous friends! I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving with your families and I hope to hear all about your Black Friday finds! Today I want to share with you a project my husband and I finished last night and are so proud of.

Welcome to our Cozy Christmas Corner!

our-cozychristmascorner

Living in our new home we have much more living space, we have been blessed with a more open concept layout which I love! Nothing extra needed to be purchases this season to conquer this look but I will let you know where things have been purchased in the past. I will try to link you to the exact product or possibly something similar.

Not too much had to change in our dining room to make this look work for us. Normally here in this space we have our small white wood, four chaired, kitchen table and this antique chalkboard on the wall. Our kitchen table is still in this room just on a far corner.

Our tree topper is one that has been handed down to me and is one of my most loved pieces in my home. A handmade, beaded angel made by my great grandmother Ruby.

I incorporated some string lights to hang around our antique chalkboard that perfectly plug in right behind the bench. It was like a match made in heaven!

This bench was a birthday gift from my mom two years ago. At our old house we used it as storage and a place to store shoes in our mudroom. She purchased from Overstock.com. It is so nice to have a piece that can be used for many different placements.

Throw Pillows

I was having trouble finding a tree skirt this season that was reasonably priced and was not all glitter.  {We would have glitter paw prints everywhere.. no thank you}. This is left over burlap from our August wedding laid and ruffled underneath. Another option if you are having trouble finding a tree skirt, you can use a table cloth or any other piece of fabric.

My last November Favorite has been my go-to matte lipstick. A big problem I had been having with other matte lipsticks was that they were so drying to my already dry lips. Winter hits my body hard and the last thing I want is something to work against me, I don’t have this problem at all with HoneyLove. I look forward to trying some other MAC colors!

Hermann, Missouri Weekend Scenery

Hello my gorgeous friends! I want to share with you today about an amazing weekend I just had and I want to express to all of you just how crucial it is to be surrounded by family and friends who love and support you. Physical possessions will always come and go but memories, photos and experiences really do last a lifetime.

img_3192

A few months ago, my husband and I sat down with my mom and her new husband to let them know where and when we were moving across the state. After dropping the big news, my mom composed herself in what seemed like forever when in reality was only a few seconds. Then the words she spoke made my heart fill with so much joy, “Looks like I’ll have a road trip and we can have a girls weekend in Hermann.” Just when I thought I knew my mother.. she was able to take a conversation that broke her heart and made it into something so very special.

Yes, this is how my mother’s birthday weekend in Hermann, Missouri began. If you have never been to this historic town it’s a must see, beautiful wine country. Most of my photos you will see in this blog do not show just how astonishing these views really were. My mother-in-law, my mom and I had a very eventful, memory-making , jaw dropping weekend.

Above is the view from the front porch of the home we rented for the weekend. Every morning we came out onto the front porch with our coffee and blankets to watch the perfect view of eagles flying above the Missouri River.

Simple Ways To Bring Fall Décor Into Your Home

Hello Gorgeous! So today I wanted to step away from my normal hair blogs and talk about my current home décor fall favorites. As some of you may know, the past few months have been crazy: getting married, traveling to our honeymoon, moving across the state and everything else that comes into play with those life changes. So as we settle in to our new home I have decorated with very simple touches of fall.

fall-favorites-home-decor-hair-by-amy-wentz-blogYankee Candle: Salted Caramel

I knew that this season I didn’t have time or the patience to get too in depth with my fall décor (which means my Christmas décor will be much more festive… my husband will be so excited.) I am in LOVE with this look I have photo’d above.. so simple. I already had the tray and glass hurricane vase, which by the way both have come in handy so often for my decorating ideas. Add some small pumpkins into your larger vase and light a cozy candle. I have this positioned at a slight angle on our living room coffee table.

Modified version of the first photo idea… stacked pumpkins (the white one did not come with a stem) used with the same candle and tray on our white wood kitchen table.

Two other candles I have been obsessed with this season have both been from Bath & Body Works. The first is Pumpkin Pecan Waffles which I found and tried last year (I could be wrong but I think the packaging has changed) and purchased the hand soap with micro beads for our guest bathroom. I will have the photo below.

Second is the Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake candle, this year was my first time trying it and I do really enjoy the scent. Personally for me it is one I can’t have lit for too long but is still cozy. I will post a photo below. (Our Bloodhound, Copper in the background, she is very excited about our fall décor too!)

Lastly I wanted to share one of my most favorite fall purchases that I believe I found at Hobby Lobby or Homegoods. This is one of my favorites because of the style, nothing about this is screaming at you. Currently in my kitchen since it is so subtle.
