California Closets Memphis

So pretty much every blogger and their mother is posting about sales today so I thought I’d approach cyber Monday from a different angle and talk about what to do with all your fab purchases once they arrive. If you’re anything like me you have a bench at the foot if you bed piled with a bunch of clothes that need to be hung up / put away. Don’t get me wrong - my closet has come a long way between moving and purging but there’s still some disorganization which leads to clothes, shoes and purses spilling out into other parts of the house. 
When we first started looking at homes a custom closet was pretty high on our wish list but when we found the perfect home the builder had just finished we knew we had to pick our battles when it came to asking for more work when making our offer and as much as I hate the wire rack closets I figured re-doing a closet down the line would be easier than say building out the bonus room; it turns out I was right because California Closets has just opened an office in Memphis

I was so excited to see a real life California Closet because our two year home priority list is painting,  more landscaping and the master bedroom closet. I think when a lot of people hear custom closet they think $$$$$ and oh, that’s for people who have closets the size of a room. Yes, if you go to the California Closets website you will see lots of beautiful examples of closets you could live in but there’s plenty of less extravagent options as well. California Closets will have a show room in 2018 but for now you can see their beautiful work at the Vesta Home Show at Chapel Cove
Because it’s a home show this closet of course has all the top of the line features - tilted shelves for shoes, shelf lighting, display cabinet, velvet lines drawers, slide out laundry bins and even a pull out garnet rack for when you’re packing (or pulling pieces for a blog photo shoot). 
 
 
 
This closet is what is considered level 4, but customization can start simple. Level 1 closets include the shelving, level 2 a bit of framing, level 3 start adding on some features and then of course you can go all the way. If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time you know I’m very value conscious so I never talk about something without talking price - it’s impossible to give a number based on your unknown closet but according to the designer, Sharon, closets start at around $2,500. One cool thing I like about California Closets is that you can add to your closet - so maybe next year you start with level 1 and then the next you add some features and upgrades. Of course, the biggest standout is the customization. California Closets offers free consultations and the designer will come to your home and not only measure your space but measure your clothing and take note of all you have in your closet - for example I only own a few Maxi or formal dresses so I wouldn’t need a very big long hanging area but I probably have more purses than the average woman.

As we’ve looked at a lot of homes lately I’ve noticed that the trend seems to be less space but more high end features. The home at Chapel Cove for example are much more expensive than  our home yet the master bedrooms are smaller with the emphasis on the entire suite - sitting areas, high end bathroom fixtures and marble and then of course custom closets. During our own search I found myself in several homes saying this is too much space - sometimes more is just more y’all. So really you could think of custom closets not just as making your life more functional and organized but also in adding a standout feature to your home - that’s how I’m pitching it to my husband anyway.

10 Year Challenge

Earlier this week I shared an image encouraging people to think about their accomplishments over the past ten years rather than how their looks have changed and listed all the positive things that have happened in my own life. It's not that I mind sharing pics of what I looked like 10 years ago but just sharing a picture doesn't tell the whole story. I had a lot of people respond congratulating me on my accomplishments and while I appreciate that it made me realize my intention was never to brag or say oh, look how great my life has been because the past ten years have been years of struggle and success.
Here you see a girl who thinks she's the life of the party - she's 24 and has practically no responsibilities but I don't envy her or wish I could return to that lifestyle.
Meanwhile, you look at this 34 year old woman and you see she's changed the way she treats her hair, she has some lines around the eyes and roundness to her face that wasn't there befo…

Hello Kitty Tea

A few months ago I was scrolling on instagram and I saw some posts about a place called The Hello Kitty Grand Café. Now I had stopped by the Hello Kitty Café food truck when it rolled through Memphis (check out my post on that here) but this looked to be taking the experience to the next level. After digging into it I discovered that The Hello Kitty Grand Café was not far from my in-law’s home in Southern California and lucky for me we had trip already planned. The Hello Kitty Grand Café operates with several functions – the front section of the location operates just like the food truck with a menu of sweets and drinks, anyone can walk in for counter service and there are a few tables in addition to some photo spots available. In the back is The Bow Room which offers a pre-fixe tea menu during the day and turns into a cocktail lounge in the evenings. Reservations are currently taken through Yelp and open up 30 days in advance- while weekend reservations can be hard to come by its a l…

Timeless Style of a Natural Stone Watch

Hello Friends! I hope 2018 wrapped up nicely for you and you're watching out for opportunities in the new year. I love gifting to others but let's be real - I also love treating myself which is why I'm so excited to be wearing a new watch into the new year! Plus- it's perfect for my New Year's resolution to be on time more in 2019. Don't worry - I have a treat for you too at the end of this post.

Last year I received a beautiful wooden watch (which I still love BTW) but there have been times when I 've  wanted something a little more elegant on my wrist. The folks at Jord must have been reading my mind because they just released the new Sier Arcadia collection featuring interchangeable leather and mesh bands and natural stone faces. Each style is truly beautiful but I was drawn to the Sodalite and Gold style because it's unique from any watch I've seen. I tend to wear a lot of blues so this unique style really compliments my wardrobe. The only oth…

Go WILD, Y'all

I'm writing this post with a serious case of the Mondays as I'm recovering from Go Wild this past week. Go Wild is the annual conference run by the Wild for Planners group and it is so much fun! This year's conference was in Nashville and while there is was announced that 2018 will be in Austin, TX. In addition to bringing planner enthusiasts together this event also presents the opportunity to hear from great speakers, meet planner  / planner goodies suppliers and the part that people to notice the most - awesome swag.   I first found out about the group last year when some planner girls I followed posted on instagram about the conference. To an outsider it looks like oh fun, planner girls gathering and getting tons of swag - I want to go! But the reality is it's so much for than that and to be perfectly honest if you're only interested in the swag you'd be better off staying home and going on a shopping spree. Since everyone wants to know the most though wha…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
