Instagram vs. Reality 😂 Swipe to see how taking photos of myself sometimes looks 😂😂 Anywho happy Sunday friends! It’s a very rainy and dreary day here in SC! But you know what that means, prime NAP TIME! 🙌🏻 And Lord knows I need it 😂
Good morning! And happy Saturday! I am currently still in bed trying to rest a little longer to get myself ready for the MASSIVE amount of cleaning and purging I have to do today! Pray for me 😂🙏🏻 But I think it’s time for me to get out of bed and go grab my breakfast of champions aka @chickfila and then I’m going to hit the ground running on this house! So all my local people, stay tuned to my stories today to shop all the goodies I don’t want anymore lol 😂
Ok y’all! Posting early yesterday turned out better than I thought it would! So here we go again 😂 When I did this tablescape for Fall a few weeks ago, I had every intention of taking it down soon after to use the pumpkins on my front porch! Well as you can see that didn’t happen! I completely FELL IN LOVE with how it turned out and I think it’s one of the best designs I have done! And what’s funny is that I did this on a whim during a live with you guys! And I had no vision or idea in mind lol I just went for it! 💕🎃🍂🍁 That just goes to show you that sometimes you just have to start decorating a space and keep tweaking it till you get it right! You don’t always have to have a plan first! Anywho I hope y’all have the best FRIDAYYYY 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 And make sure you tune into my stories this weekend to possibly see some behind the scenes of me redoing my guest bedroom!
Ok I’m testing something out today 😂 I want to see if you guys like it better if I post in the morning, afternoon or evening! Let me know in the comments which time is best for you lol Also because I know you’re drooling over it too, this blanket is from @kozyknitdesigns and it’s AMAZING! 🙌🏻💕 PS: I’m still ready to put my Christmas decor up but I’m trying to restrain myself 😂🎄
Well friends I think my Fall porch is done! 🙌🏻 I went very simple this year! And don’t worry I will go more in depth on Friday when I post my porch tour! But tonight I want to talk about this amazing new flannel I got from @lsmercantileco 🙌🏻💕 I love how she takes the simplest piece and changes it into something amazing and original! Make sure y’all check her out! She will also be at @vintagepickin in Taylors, SC if you want to grab yourself one! 💕
Well I switched up my mantle for Fall AGAIN! 😂😂 What can I say it’s my favorite space to decorate! I feel like I can get all my creative juices flowing here in this space 😂🙌🏻 And actually the sign you see there from @handtreatedhome was actually supposed to go in another spot in my home! But I sat it up there to just see how it looked and FELL IN LOVE with it there! That just goes to show that not everything always goes as planned but it still can work out great! Also make sure y’all go give Angela @handtreatedhome a follow and check out her AMAZING signs! 💕 she is seriously so talented and one of my best friends! Also you can use my code blissfulhome20 for 20% off your order!
Ok is it just me or does it not feel like it should at least be Thursday already? 😂 I mean man oh man is this week just creepin on by 😂 But on the plus side can I just say I am LOVING how my dining area is coming together! With every new piece, wether it’s big or small, it brings so much life and coziness to the space! 💕 And y’all I seriously CAN NOT wait to decorate this space for Christmas! I’m already working on some ideas lol 😂🙌🏻💕🎄🎅🏻 What’s your favorite part about this space?
Happy Monday! How and WHY does the weekend always have to FLY by 😫 I always feel like I get nothing done 😂 Also is anyone else CRAVING Christmas decor?! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Lord knows I am lol Like I literally want to rip all my Fall decor down and put up my trees 😂😂🎄 But I guess I’ll wait 😫😂

How I feel about the weather that’s coming this weekend! 🙌🏻💕🍂🍁 It’s actually supposed to be in the 70s and I am HERE FOR IT!!!! What are you excited for this week? 😁
Well another Monday is upon us and it’s still 9,000,000 degrees here in SC 😫😫😫😫🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Dear Lord please let this end soon! 🙏🏻 I seriously NEED some like 60-65 degree weather, but let’s be honest that won’t come till end of November 😫🍁🍂 But I’m trying not to let it get me to down because I found out this morning that there is only 3 weeks until Countdown to Christmas starts on @hallmarkchannel 🙌🏻💕🎅🏻🎄 Is anyone else just as excited as me?!
Well friends today I’m planning out my guest bedroom refresh while still drooling over my own bedroom refresh! (Which still isn’t fully complete yet 😂) I mean this gallery wall seriously gives me life every time I see it! 🙌🏻🙌🏻💕🍁🍂 What do you guys think of it? And what “theme” do you think I’m going to go for in the guest room?! Let’s see if anyone can guess it 😂😂
Well I don’t think I have EVER posted a true selfie on this Instagram, but I felt what better time then now! I wanted to take today to introduce myself to all my new friends who joined the party this week 😂💕 So hi my name is Kara and here are some facts about me 😁 1. I’m 28, not married and don’t have kids! (Don’t remind my mother 😂) 2. I live with my little sister @kelseyywardd in a home we bought next door to my parents! 3. I also co own a shop called @thegatheredmarketshop with my best friend @daltonlester328 💕 4. My dream is to own multiple stores and share my love for all things home with everyone I can! So basically I want to be the SC version of Joanna Gaines 😂 5. I’m also a licensed cosmetologist but I only really do my family and friends hair these days! 💇🏼♀️ 6. I have always had a good sense of humor and people tell me often that I should do stand up but I’m afraid I’ll get up on stage and this will happen 😳 7. My second toe is longer than my big toe so that means I’m head of the household/the boss, just sayin! (Google it, it’s the truth! Or if you’re to lazy I’ll put it in my stories 😂) 8. I’m a fake blonde and I love it! 😂 9. I was born on December 22nd and came home from the hospital on Christmas Eve so that’s why I tell everyone I was literally BORN FOR CHRISTMAS! Hence where my obsession began! 🎄💕🎅🏻 10. My ultimate goal with my Instagram is to share inspiration, meet wonderful people, spread happiness and laughter, have my home displayed in a magazine and be a @chickfila spokesgirl 😂🙏🏻🤞🏻 So there’s a little about me! Trust me you’ll learn more as the days go on if you decide to stick around lol But again thank you all for being here and supporting my dreams one like, follow, swipe up or comment at a time! I love you all more than you will ever know 💕
