Happy December, y’all! The fact that it is now December, and almost 2018 is seriously blowing my mind, and I feel like I should already be thinking of new year goals but honestly I’m just trying to survive this last month of 2017! I wanted to share our quick and simple wreath and ornament Christmas centerpiece for similar reasons to the Easy Glam Halloween Centerpiece post – the winter holidays can often feel like an insane season of playing catchup to everyone else! Time seems to go by so much more quickly, and a lot of that is ideally due to super fun reasons, like holiday parties and time with friends/family, but some of it is also usually due to the fact that the sun sets at 5:30 pm (AKA the worst thing about Winter, ever).

If you’re a regular follower of Blonde Boss Babe, here are a couple quick updates that you might (hopefully) find interesting and/or like to know:

  • Blonde Boss Babe has been officially accepted to rewardStyle – meaning you can now shop all the linked Instagram/Facebook/Pinterest images & more to browse/purchase the items in my posts directly. Y’all, this is the MOST convenient thing on the planet. If you don’t have the Liketoknow.it app already, I strongly recommend downloading it – even if you don’t necessarily prefer what I personally post, there are so many amazing bloggers you can follow through the app. For instance, Morgan with Timeless Taste, has amazing home decor posts, fashion, recipes, and more for you to enjoy and browse through – I love her blog, and her instagram feed is just gorgeous – so you’ll definitely be glad you downloaded the Liketoknowit.app to peruse all of her linked beauties.
  • I AM FINALLY GRADUATING LAW SCHOOL. Holla Praize, y’all. The *~SuPeR~* blessed day will be taking place December 16th and I can’t wait! Immediately after, I will begin bar exam preparation. This is a 2 month process of extremely fun isolation aka studying for the February NC Bar exam. What this means for the blog: Ironically, it means more consistent posts – I have a lot of content that has been prescheduled for this two-month period, which is actually the reason why the past couple of months have been a little bit (actually a lot) less abundant in posts. So unfortunately, what this also means is that my response time will be significantly slower for emails, comments, and the like. I definitely still encourage you to send any questions you may have about any item shared or any DIY post, but please allow me some grace in the amount of time I may take in responding 🙂

Thank you all for reading and supporting this passion of mine on this little corner of the Internet. I am so amazed by all the ways this tiny blog has grown in its first year of existence, and so unbelievably grateful for all you, without whom such growth would not have even had a chance. Looking forward to stepping into this next season with you all <3

Less than 1 week till Halloween! As fun as this holiday can be, it can also sometimes be a bit of a pain to decorate for – especially if you generally prefer neutral-everything. This year, I wanted to do something festive in our dining room that wouldn’t detract from the rest of the space in our home. Ideally, I was also aiming to incorporate pieces we already have out in our home all year so that excess storage would be minimized. Y’all… I am a home decor-hoarder. It is SO hard for me to get rid of home decor items, so the less “seasonal” pieces I purchase each year, the better!

The only “new” item in this centerpiece is the leaf place setting from Michael’s. They’re very inexpensive, and by purchasing only one for use as a centerpiece you’re going to be extra budget-friendly – PLUS it can be reused for Thanksgiving themed centerpieces too. If the skulls look familiar, it’s because they’re from the same set I used for last year’s Halloween Bar Cart post. I LOVE them. They’re super lightweight and very versatile. I am seriously considering snagging a few more sets to use as filler in the glass apothecary jars we have on our console table. Speaking of glass, this glass dome is perfect for everyday decor, whether over a candle or on top of coffee table books. The mercury jars are also out year round in home. I grabbed these two from HomeGoods, but found similar ones with removable tops and have linked them here and here.

Dining Room Update

Happy end of July, y’all! If you’ve been following the Blonde Boss Babe blog for a while now, then you already know just how excited I am to share this update to our dining room!

For the last 2 1/2  years, J and I have been using a table I bought during undergrad from another student. It had already been through a lot by the time it came to me, but it served its purpose and fit in our tiny condo so it worked for us. Then when we moved into the house we are in now, I really started hoping we could replace it with a set that would seat more people without overwhelming the space. Lucky enough, a local family moving across the state decided they wanted to buy all new furniture for their new home and posted this set online for a steal, which as you can see I jumped all over asap 🙂

Right now I’m trying to decide if I want to put a rug in here or leave it as is. Let me know if you have any opinions on what I should choose! I’m currently looking at this one & this one. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
