giveaway: SodaStream Source

December 21st, 2012 · 86 Comments

You know what you’re going to need after all this holiday eating and drinking? 

Detox.

A nice, healthy week of going to bed early, eating healthy, working out, and drinking lots (and lots and lots) of water. 

You know what would make that week much more fun? 

A brand new SodaStream Source!  We have one of these in our kitchen and I am OBSESSED with it.  It basically doubled the number of glasses of water I drink in a day, because now I don’t have to lug seltzer water home from the grocery store to enjoy it!  And, even better, no wasted cans or plastic bottles — this machine carbonates seltzer water straight from your tap! 

It will seriously change your life. 

Now, the fun part: you can win one!  Just leave a comment below to enter, and I’ll announce a randomly selected winner next week! 

Update: The winner is Comment 11, Michael J. McCoy!

Happy holidays everyone!

room makeover!

December 11th, 2012 · 4 Comments

Every time that people come over to our house, I feel the need to explain that it’s a work in progress! We’ve been working on the downstairs almost since we moved in, but up until two weeks ago, the upstairs had this pretty, open landing at the top of our stairs… that was completely empty.

But I had a feeling that we could get a lot of use out of this space if it could just be cozy and comfortable! It’s basically a family room — centrally located in our house, and perfect for watching TV, lounging, or editing photos on my laptop!

So when I was picking furniture, comfort was key! I wanted a couch that would really fit our lifestyle over the next few years — comfortable, durable, and, of course, stylish! This La-Z-Boy sofa and ottoman were completely perfect — I fell in love the moment I saw them!

I broke up the caramel color of the couch with some turquoise and white accents — a little bit of color and texture make any room more fun! We’ve spent so much time in here since this room makeover — definitely 100% a success!

Gifted La-Z-Boy Griffin sectional and Luca ottoman, pillows and horse head from High Fashion Home, throw blankets from Z Gallerie and Pottery Barn.

PS: Don’t worry — coco loves the couch too, she was just sleepy in my photo!

living sweetly (and a giveaway!)

November 9th, 2012 · 16 Comments

So, this has to be one of the coolest packages I’ve ever received. 

A few weeks ago, I got an email from the lovely Jorie of WhoopTee, asking if I’d be interested in creating a Sugarlaws tee shirt!  Obviously, I was all, “that sounds like the best idea EVER, but you know what would make it even cooler?”

Doggie hoodies!

Seriously.  Way to up the ante, WhoopTee.  So Calvin and Coco got these awesome little outfits, and basically, the Sugarlaws family is nearly as well-branded as the Kardashians at this point.  Gotta have a goal, people.

And you guys can get into the action too!  WhoopTee has offered three Sugarlaws tank tops to my readers — so just leave a comment below to enter!  And then wear them everywhere, preferably in places that are as public as possible!  And send me pictures!  Hey, a girl can dream, right?!

On me: WhoopTee custom t-shirt (find them on Facebook and Twitter too!), Hudson jeans, Zara wedges.  On Calvin and Coco: WhoopTee dog hoodies.
