Today is my birthday and I’m feeling all the feels. Thanks for the love, extra special messages, and comments. You guys sure know how to make a gal feel good! I’m going to shake up a cocktail tonight and celebrate another wonderful year of life. Emmett also made reservations at my favorite fancy Italian restaurant in town and I’m very much looking forward to that. I wanted to share a noteworthy style post, some goals for the year ahead, inspiration, lessons learned, and most importantly- a gift for you! Click through for more…
Let’s jump right into the good stuff (obviously, I’m talking about the gift). I know I just did a giveaway last week, but I’m the type of gal who would rather give gifts than receive them. I’m also the worst at keeping surprises. I always try to give Emmett his birthday and Christmas gifts weeks in advance. Ha! Anyway, All of this to say, I’m doing a giveaway for my birthday. It’s a good one! More details and entering info at the end of the post- stay tuned.
Things I’m feeling this month? Nerdy zodiac charts and horoscopes. This post is super awesome and spot on for me! Have you tried this? Shoutout to my fellow Scorpios… happy birthday friends- let’s enjoy our season.
Now that we’re at the end of October, and nearly into the holiday months… if you’re planning to travel for the holidays, here’s some knowledge on getting the best deal. If you don’t feel like reading it, basically this dude says to book your Thanksgiving flight BEFORE the end of October. Hop to it, that means now.
Speaking of the holidays, I’m working on some special holiday items for the RFT Store (SO exciting!). Keep your eye out for those- of course I’ll do an announcement once they’re live.
If you’re into Pinterest (who isn’t?!), I reworked all of my Pinterest boards last week and I forgot how much good inspiration I’ve saved over the years. Check them out and give it a follow if you’re not already.
Giant thank you to those who have been voting daily for Room for Tuesday in the Domino Blog Awards. Tomorrow is the last day to vote (then I promise not to annoy you anymore). You can also cast an extra vote, by repining THIS IMAGE. Please go repin that baby because 1.) it’d mean a lot to me, and 2.) because it took me forever to style out that shelf and I feel like it’s pretty pin-worthy. Ha! No matter the outcome, I’m super thankful for the opportunity, but more importantly- your support and encouragement. I’ll keep you updated once they announce the winners (eeek, fingers crossed)!
There’s a giant list of my favorite Halloween cocktails coming to the blog tomorrow, and you better believe I’m celebrating my birthday with one of those.
In the upcoming year I can’t wait to finish our renovation. Obviously we’ll be sharing the bathroom soon, and after that will come the kitchen, office, and hallway. Aside from finishing our own projects, I’ll be tackling more client projects, and hopefully taking on some more fun collaborations in the year ahead.
Speaking of the bathroom, I’ve had the same cosmetic bag for 10(!) years. I grabbed it from Walmart way back when and I decided that I should finally break down and purchase an “adult looking one” since I’ll be shooting everything in the bathroom within the next week or two. This is the one I landed on… I also had it monogrammed.
I’m hoping to sneak out of the office early today and do some thrift shopping before dinner tonight. I’m sort of slammed with work, but birthdays call for at least a little fun. I hope everyone has a good Monday! Enter the giveaway below…
B I R T H D A Y G I V E A W A Y :
Here’s the twist… I’m picking TWO giveaway winners this time around. Here’s how to enter:
- Comment on this Instagram photo and tag a friend.
- Comment on the blog post below and let me know which print you’d like from the store and what size.
The winner will receive the print of their choice, AND their tagged friend will get to pick one as well. Everything’s more fun with a bf, right? Have a great week, guys! xox

I would go for the largest bison print (even though I realistically know that I can’t win because I’m in the UK – unless I can?!) – he’s brilliant!

Happy birthday! I’d love the large industrial mill print!
AmandaOctober 30, 2017 at 3:47 pm
Happy, happy birthday!! My birthday is tomorrow – cheers to us Scorpios! I’m torn – I would go for either the bison 2 or the palms. Two totally different looks, but I think either would be great in my guest room that I’m wrapping up!

Happy, happy birthday Sarah! I love all the prints and it’s so hard to choose but your Bison print is tugging at my heart strings – we have a huge blank space above the couch and the 24×36 would just MAKE the room! Fingers crossed…
