The Perfect Gift

At any moment if my husband were to ask me what I wanted as a gift, I would be able to raddle off at least five things. The men in my life seem to be the complete opposite. I ask my husband what he wants and he says, “nothing”. I ask my dad, and he says, “nothing”. I ask my 22-year-old brother and he says, “nothing, well, I guess money”.

If you have the same problem, I have a solution! Meet Caddy SlacksCaddy Slacks are golf pants and shorts that basically have a pocket/place for everything they need on the course.   And to make our lives easier- they are non-iron. Each pair of pants and shorts comes with a logo ball mark and hang tag describing all the features which doubles as a beer/drink coaster!

Ladies- I promise your men won’t be disappointed. My husband loves the pants and I just order the shorts for him…And he is soooo picky!

The owner and innovator of Caddy Slacks is my husband’s cousin and a dear friend. Caddy Slacks is currently on Kickstarter. It would mean the world if you helped support him!


New Home, New Art

As some of you know, my husband and I recently bought a house and moved in at the end of October. We moved from a condo, so there was/is a lot we needed to buy. Slowly but surely we are getting there. Initially, I knocked out the bigger purchases, such as a desk, gym equipment, a full-length mirror, etc. I am now feeling more comfortable that the spaces are decorated with furniture but what I lacked was Art. We literally have nothing on the walls. I enlisted the help of a friend, who has launched her Fine Art business and who is amazingly talented. Meet my friend and talented artist, Lindsay Ghata.

Lindsay is originally from Florida and currently resides in Atlanta, good news for Atlanta locals (even though she ships)! She has studied Art in Florence, Italy and has done calligraphy for the past 5 years. Last year she started painting as a secondary creative outlet from her current job in advertising.

 At Lindsay Ghata Fine Art you can find acrylic, pastels and oil, large and small, and abstract paintings. My favorite is the gold foiling that she adds to some of her paintings.  The other great thing about Lindsay Ghata Fine Art, is that Lindsay offers consulting on design ideas based on your space. Be sure to check her out on Instagram too.

I have a long way to go but here are some of the pieces I chose for my Master Bedroom mantle. Which one do you like the best?
