OK, I realize this took me wayyyyyyy too long, but I am so excited to FINALLY share my Seattle apartment with you guys starting with my home office tour. It's been so fun to have a space that is all my own (although often times taken over by my husbands junk-we only have 900 square feet people) and allows me to be inspired and create for you guys. It's definitely small and being taken over by clothes, but I love it! As you will see from the rest of the apartment, we went with a netural bohemian theme. My office has tons of natural light (when it's not raining) and was pretty easy to decorate considering the size. I basically have one wall in the office that isn't a sliding door or windows, so I knew it needed to make a statement. I have always loved gallery walls but have never been confident in my ability to style one, so I called upon Minted and their personal art styling service.

The Art Styling Service from Minted is seriously amazing! It's super easy and convenient and before you know it, you will have a perfectly designed gallery wall. I simply took an easy style quiz so my designer could have an idea of my personal style and get a taste for the things I liked. Next, I uploaded photos of the exact space where I wanted my gallery wall to hang (iphone photos worked perfectly). My stylist (Kathryn-she was amazing) then two options to choose from. She included pictures of what they would look like hung on the walls so I could visualize for myself.

Kathryn did an amazing job and I actually loved both choices, but I ended up going with the second option because it had a little more color. I didn't include much color in my apartment except for subtle pops of blush pink, so I decided to be a little bit more adventurous with my office. Also, I immediately fell in love with the vintage car print. This design reminds me of Old Havana which is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit.

After I made my choice, I sent Kathryn the dimensions of my wall and she sent back the correct sizes for each piece of art. Kathryn then placed each of the items in my Minted shopping cart. This was super helpful because I simply had to checkout (I didn't even stress about making sure I had picked the right sizes).

After about a week, I received the art and Ben and I hung the pieces according to the directions outlined from Kathryn. Seriously, the whole process could not have been easier. It was SO helpful to have someone put together a gallery wall for me without all the stress. Especially for a girl who has a hard time making decisions when it comes to home decor. I am in love with the way it turned out and can't wait to show you the rest of the pieces we picked!

The Minted art styling services start at just $79 for an art wall and $99 for an art room! It's seriously like having your own personal interior designer minus the insane cost. I couldn't recommend it more.

BLOUSE: MAUDE BOUTIQUE (C/O) | FLORAL PANTS: MAUDE BOUTIQUE (C/O AND ON SALE) | GOLD HOOPS: KENDA KIST | GREY MULES: SEYCHELLES

Checking in for a quick update from NC. I have been here for the last couple of days soaking in time with my family. It's my first time back home since January, so it has been nice hanging with my parents, eating at all my favorite restaurants and soaking in that southern hospitality.

I wore this look for dinner one night and loved how easy and breezy it was. It kept me cool in the Summer heat, but I also think it would transition beautifully for Fall. I will 100% be pairing these pants with a slouchy sweater and booties as it gets cooler.

You guys have heard me talk about Maude Boutique before, but it truly is one of my favorite places to shop! They carry such amazing brands, always have a great selection and everything ships super fast!

I'm actually quite embarrassed to admit this, but I have never taken good care of my skin or had any skincare regimen at all. I've always taken my makeup off at night, and washed my face but that's about it! I knew it was gonna take something drastic for me to finally do something about my skin and to start to put in the effort to take care of it. That's where my night time routine comes in! I am a self proclaimed routine girl. I could literally eat the same things every day and do best when I work out at the same time, so developing a night time routine seemed like a smart option! Stay tuned for a post on the exact products I use for my skin at night coming soon!

COMFY CLOTHES AND WIND DOWN: My first step in my night time routine is to get comfortable! Putting on PJ's is the easiest way to start my wind down process. It's much easier for me to relax my mind when i'm comfortable, so sweatpants and an oversized T-shirt are key. Sometimes, I opt for a cup of hot tea as well. It's not an every night thing for me, but I do love it on occasion.

CLEANSE: There's nothing better than being completely clean before bed! I like to remove all of my makeup and cleanse my skin. I have recently been loving the Peony Petal Cleansing Oil from L'OCCITANE. It's infused with real peony petals from Provence and smells amazing. I also love how it gently cleanses my skin and leaves it feeling silky and smooth. My skin has seriously never been more radiant or glowing.

PAMPER: I try to find a way to pamper myself every evening because we all deserve a little pampering. This usually comes in many forms and could be anything from a giant bowl of popcorn to a long bubble bath, but my favorite way to truly treat myself is with a face mask. I absolutely love the L'OCCITANE Peony Collection face masks. I use the Peony Flash Moisture Mask, Peony Overnight Perfecting Mask and the Peony Purifying Minute Mask interchangeably depending on what my skin needs at the time. My favorite mask in the Peony Purifying Minute Mask because I see immediate results. It's like a mini miracle for my skin and makes me feel SO good!

READ: Finally, I always try to do a little reading before I go to bed. I usually only last about 20 mins before I can no longer keep my eyes open, but I always try to read for at least a little bit! I love that it helps me to shut off my brain and not think too much about my day or anything that might be causing me stress.

Do you have a routine you stick to before bed? I would love to know your tips! Stay tuned for a post on the exact products I use for my skin at night coming soon!

This post is in collaboration with L'OCCITANE but all opinions are my own!
