Goodbye Summer, hello Fall! Brought to you by Raymour & Flanigan!

Summer 2021 has come and past and we have so many exciting holidays ahead as we head into the Fall and Winter seasons. Fall happens to be my favorite time of year. The perfect weather to sit out back with family and friends and enjoy the cool weather, sunshine, and beautiful colors of the leaves around us.

This year we were able to spruce up our back yard living space with the most beautiful outdoor dining set from Raymour and Flanigan! We recently received our Savannah 7 piece dining set and are absolutely loving how it compliments our space! The chairs are a grey wicker with a cozy light grey cushion providing endless comfort for those wonderful fall nights on the patio. The table appears to be dark grey wood, but is actually a metal table top providing durability and sustainability in the long winter months! The base of the table is a strong white metal, and I love the farmhouse style it displays! As the summer comes to a close, and the mid day can still present warm temps, the table even has a hole in the center for an umbrella to block the sunshine. This table really has it all!

This weekend we plan to have family join us for a fall brunch! I have styled the table for the occasion, here’s some ways you can too!

  1. Create a warm and welcoming environment. I decided to decorate the table with some festive pumpkins, gold cutlery, beautiful mini pampas, and fall themed hand towels! Simple, charming, and aesthetically pleasing!

2. Make some festive cocktails for your guests! I decided to go with a cranberry rose’. It was so delicious and the perfect treat on a cool fall afternoon!

3. Finally, throw on a cute fall outfit and join your guests for some seasonal fun! You can see me here enjoying our cozy wicker cushioned chairs and a cocktail! Our new backyard patio set is now the perfect spot to create some new memories and I cannot speak highly enough of the customer support team with Raymour & Flanigan. Their fast shipping, quality delivery and installation, and overall superb communication went such a long way in creating a phenomenal customer experience.

i t ‘ s j u s t j u l z preset bundle

The time has finally come! I am launching my own preset pack! YAY!

After so many preset purchases that left me unsatisfied, I have decided to make my own preset pack that emulates the way I want you to see my feed, and how yours could look too! When it comes to blogging, or promoting a business of any sort, it is important to have an aesthetically pleasing & cohesive feed.

I have learned so much from the many other preset creators out there, and have worked so hard to bring you guys a 4 pack preset bundle that works in warm and cool, and indoor and outdoor environments. I have worked tirelessly to make sure that these presets provide versatility over many photos, and that they require minimal tweaking.

If this is your first time buying a preset, you should know that you will need to download Adobe Lightroom Mobile – fun fact – it’s free!

Here I will link a tutorial video that will show you  how to import your new presets from your email straight to Lightroom! Oh, and be sure to tag #itsjustjulzpresets so I can see all the fun you’re having and engage on your photos!

Below are the before and after one click presets for all four presets!

Smilelove Impression Kit – Vlog 1

I am so thankful that Smilelove chose to partner with me in these upcoming months!

Something I have always been self conscious about is the way my teeth have shifted over the years due to lack of retainer use and wisdom teeth!

With that said, I never had the extra money laying around to spend on aligners or metal braces again! Plus, who wants metal braces for the third time in their life – not me!

Thankfully, Smilelove not only makes the process quick and easy, but affordable as well! They are the most affordable aligner company I have found and their customer support is nothing less than amazing.

In my vlog below I show you guys how easy Smilelove makes it to create and send back your impressions!

I look forward to continuing to share my progress with you and if this seems like everything you’ve been looking for, use code JULZ100 for $100 OFF (YES – you read that correctly) your order!

Again, thank you so much Smilelove! I cannot wait to share my journey! Smilelove.com

 

 

Happy Holidays! Snapfish Foil Cards

As we approach our first year in our new home, I thought it would only be fitting to order our first set of Christmas cards to share with our family & loved ones!

Christmas cards were something that my family always did growing up and it is a tradition I definitely want to continue as Gaeton and I grow a family of our own! Fortunately for us, we had our engagement pictures taken recently by the amazing Ashley Griffin Photography. So we had an abundance of options to choose from when it came to our card style and design!

Thanks to Snapfish, we were able to order our beautiful foil-accented Christmas Cards, and Thank You’s for our upcoming wedding shower, with complete ease!

Snapfish’s design software makes it easy to import photos from Facebook, Instagram, and Google Photos! From there, the process is super user friendly! One of the reasons I love creating these Snapfish cards so much is their ability to easily create meaningful cards and photo gifts that reflect quality time I have spent with my friends and family! Or in this case, capturing a wonderful engagement shoot with Gaeton.

The detail and quality of these cards are amazing! They are simply nothing that you would find at your local pharmacy! Each card was printed on quality card stock, has a beautiful matte finish, and the foil… the foil is BEAUTIFUL! I was able to choose from gold, silver, or rose gold! I went with gold for a winter/ holiday theme and I am so pleased with the results! In addition, I was able to then customize my card shape and even add my return address at no additional cost!

I could go on and on about how great of an experience I have had with Snapfish, but showing you will say so much more. Thank you Snapfish for helping my small family eternalize some of our first memories. ♥️

If you would like to help create some family keepsakes of your own for the holidays, click here and don’t forget to use FOIL40 for 40% off your order. ✨ Snapfish has surely made our spirits brighter, one foil embossed card at a time. ✨

5 Ways to Style Your Brown Dahlia Boater Hat & Red Vintage Western Bandana Scarf

I have always been one to wear many hats…

Ever since I was a little girl I was always finding ways to express my creativity and had dreams of creating something different that expressed my own style without restrictions. Running my own blog gives me the ability to do just that and so much more.

The ability to work with such a unique and creative company such as Gigi Pip has given me yet another opportunity to collaborate and bring my own style to their beautifully crafted hats and accessories.

I chose to style the Brown Dahlia Boater Hat with the Red Vintage Western Bandana Scarf.

Here we go…

Style 1:  Bandana Hat Band

This is the perfect way to style your bandana for a chic effortless look. It adds detail and a pop of color to your hat while retaining the rustic and boho vibe that the hat and bandana combination present!

Style 2: Bandana Neck Tie

IMG_0565IMG_0564

When it comes to a bandana necktie, or as some call a neckerchief, you can style it in two ways. You can wrap it tightly around your neck, or you can follow my example and leave it hanging loose. I like to leave the bandana loose because I feel less constricted while also giving the bandana a necklace effect! This is the perfect addition of color to add to a neutral outfit.

Style 3: Belt Loop BandanaIMG_0566IMG_0567

This might just be my favorite way to style this scarf! It is such a simple addition that makes such a big difference! I am so in love with brown/red combo and I believe that this style compliments them in such a unique way! It is a perfect replacement for a belt and truly shows off some effortless style.

Style 4: Back Pocket Pop Scarf

Simple, stylish, and just noticeable enough. I love this look and think it would look even more adorable with a cropped top that showcased your backside with the bandana tied. Once again, this adds a subtle pop of color to my black and white outfit and ties the color of my brown Dahlia boater hat together.

Style 5: Wrist Wrap Bandana IMG_0569IMG_0572

Different. Bold. I LOVE this look. I paired my Red Western Scarf with my white faced watch as a bracelet styled look! The pop of red contrasting my white top and white watch create the perfect pair.

The Brown Dahlia Boater Hat is so versatile combined with the Vintage Western Bandana Scarf. I had such a fun time experimenting with different looks and bringing my own unique styles to Gigi Pips amazing pieces. Whether you style your scarf on your hat or wear it as an accent piece on your hip, I am confident your outfit will look effortlessly chic.
