I have been dying to share my new office space with you all!!! And when I say dying, literally dying! Life has been so crazy with work, shoots, and traveling that it’s been almost impossible to find a time to get some pics. I told myself this was the week though!! and here it is! I apologize in advance for the overload on pictures. There were so many I just wanted to share them all! & over time I am sure they will be all over my social media!

For starters, I have put so much effort in designing and decorating this little space of mine. (Not to mention assembling furniture — I put the entire desk & shelves together without any help– can ya tell I am proud!?) I am so beyond pleased with how it turned out! For about a week straight I went to every home store, came home with at least two bags, then returned whatever didn’t work. I can’t tell you how many times C asked, “are you going to return something again?” Eventually I just stopped answering and laughed!! He knew I was on a mission! and mission complete it is!

For this room I was inspired by a clean theme. I wanted to be able to walk in the room, sit down, and work without too many distractions! A space that I could be efficient in, but also have a super fun style! I kept my colors to white, golds, and pinks. All my accessories are little accents of designers I love! Those are the pieces that tied in the whole room and made all my blogger dreams come true!

In my cloffice (closet/office) I style, create, and blog. It’s the true behind the scenes of all my work. At that chair I write to y’all, at the gold clothing rack I pick out the weeks looks, at the shelves I style accessories, and on the rug Oslo is always my (sleeping) assistant. I think the white fur rug is his favorite!  He just curls right up on it and makes himself right at home.

This one little room has taught me to design the exact way you want, never settle (because in the end you won’t be happy), have a space that makes you feel right at home, express your creativity, and most of all enjoy the fun in decor! Styling a room allows you to unleash your ideas and create a place to your design standards!

Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I have sharing it! Now you can each feel like you are in my office with me, on this beYOUtiful blog journey!

xoxo, T <3

beYOUtiful tee

I shared this look a couple weeks ago on my instagram account but I’m just now getting around to featuring it on the blog! thnx for being patient 😉 😉

I teamed up with WildBlue Denim to bring y’all this look (& Oslo too)!!  I told my followers that I feel like this tee was made just for me! Ever since I started my blog I’ve tried to keep my theme in mind… “beYOUtiful” I feel like so often we get caught up in the world around us that we forget what it’s like to truly love ourselves. Even I am guilty of it… tbh, the start of 2017 wasn’t all that I had imagined.. I’ve had some ups & downs already.. ones that have tested me, questioned my faith, uncontrolablly doubt myself, and taught me how to cope with judgement & criticism. What I’ve really learned is that no matter what people think of you or how you are perceived on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that matters. Taylor Swift once said, “people throw rocks at things that shine.” y’all… let them throw rocks!!!!! you just stay true to yourself, your values, your hopes, your dreams, and just beYOUtiful. be YOU!!!!!! ok.. I am going to say it again… seriously, be you, be you, be you… God created us with unique characteristics.. we’re not all suppose to be alike or enjoy the same things.. how boring would it be if we were all just beautiful? so I prefer being beYOUtiful <3

Oslo & I love you guys!!! xoxoxo, T

Hi friends,

There’s so many things about me that y’all probably don’t know.. from my favorite color, to my favorite thing to wear, or my weird hobbies!!  It’s the little things that people don’t know that make us who we really are!! As you read this post, I encourage you to think about the things you enjoy, the people you love, your life goals.. maybe brain storm a bucket list or remind yourself of who you are, where you are going, and what makes you beYOUtiful!!!  I think being unique is what keeps this world going!!!  we’re all different but that’s what’s so great about it! with a little bit of soul searching and guidance from God I have been so lucky and thankful to be where I am today! &&& these are the things that make me, me!!

  • Always remember: Life isn’t perfect but your outfit can be

Doc Martens, Camo, beYOUtiful

SHIRT Piko  |  PANT camo jeans  |  SHOES Dr. Marten’s

How was everyone’s weekend!?
oh my goodness mine was soooooo busy… from Friday on I feel like I never stopped (that’s why I am sharing these pics from a shoot last week)!
Friday & Saturday I went to Music Midtown, at Piedmont Park, and it was an absolute blast!
Friday night we saw Hozier, Elton John, & Drake.
Saturday we watched Hall & Oates, Run the Jewels, Icona Pop, & Sam Smith.. & I could go on & on about Sam Smith all day!! I literally fell in love! He was so wonderful live and if you ever have the opportunity to see him in concert you MUST!!! I think I am still in awe 🙂 🙂 🙂

Anyways I am trying a new trend this fall.. which is camo pants, kinda crazy I know.. but I am totally digging the look!
I got these last year for Halloween and I have ended up getting more wear out of them than I would’ve ever thought!
The shirt is just a simple piko but such a staple piece.. I think we should all own one in a white so you can throw it on with anything.
& how about those boots?? girly, I know… but I love them!
pink is my fav and although they are combat boots, I can’t get enough of them.
I am going to wear them all winter!!! they also have some other cute designs and colored pair available. Maybe check em out 😉

my mom painted the adorable sign for me and I have it hanging in my room
Such a daily reminder to channel your inner beauty and always be yourself!

Happy Monday! Have a great day!

the cutest beYOUtiful Tee

get this t-shirt HERE
When I saw this tee I didn’t even think twice about getting it. I think it was added to my cart in about .358302  seconds.  Love this material and of course the saying!!!  I remember when I was trying to think of names/logos when starting my blog. beYOUtiful was one of my first choices and it has stuck ever since!! I want to remind girls and women that each of us are beYOUtiful in our ways! It’s okay to be different.. It’s okay to stand out.. I personally use my fashion & style to help display who I am.. I feel like I am a bright person, so I love wearing bright things! & I always tell my bf that my favorite color changes everyday… & that’s because it does! my mood, my feelings, my emotions.. they change, my favorite colors change.. and my fashion changes!! it’s a way for us to feel comfortable with who we are and say what we feel!!  this tee does exactly that for me!!
always remember beYOUtiful — YOU YOU YOU — be true to yourself and believe in yourself! nothing else really matters!

Red, White & beYOUtiful

— just BEYOUtiful —
In whatever you wear, in whatever you do– just be YOU! Always!!!
Two weeks ago I had already started planning my July 4th outfit… cause that’s just how I am.. & as I stood in my closet, looked at my red section, searched my navy section, and evaluated my shoes, I thought… wait, Why not make a shirt?  I immediately went to my computer, visited Custom Ink, and had my shirt expedited to me– Just in time for the holiday!!!  I’m so happy with how it turned out and the material of the baseball tee is great!! Now I have an American shirt for all year round, with my favorite saying!
How was everyone’s weekend?
Mine was wonderful!
I visited KY Lake, hung out with my family, and ate at the famous Mr. Bills Restaurant (Patti’s Settlement). Although the weather wasn’t the greatest we just enjoyed one another’s company and started planning for next year!!
I told my parents that I feel like when the 4th ends, summer is over. It has already gone by so quick and I don’t think it’s going to slow down!
Anyways I hope everyone’s July 4th was fun filled with fireworks, cookouts, and sun!!! and lot’s of red, white, and blue!!!
the more patriotism, the better :))
I think this is such a fun holiday because it’s the one chance we get to really honor those who have served and continue to serve, so that our Freedom is always protected!! God Bless America!! and the brave souls!!

Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday & Safe Travels for those heading home!!
