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.

Custom Hair Care with Formulate

I've had short hair most of my life, but the past few years I have been growing my hair out and one thing has become very clear - long hair is a commitment. And long hair that has been color treated for years is a project, which is why I was so excited when the team at Formulate reached out to have me try their new custom shampoo and conditioner. Even better yet - we have teamed up to give one lucky reader their own custom set for FREE!

Enter GIVEAWAY here! Getting hair care customized for your hair sounds complicated but the process was very simple as a consumer - I took a brief survey about my hair's current condition and what my hair goals were - you can pick up to five. I have a pretty oily scalp so that was my top priority but color protection, heat protection,. frizz and volume are also my concerns. I was then able to select my scent and strength - I like a strong scent in my shampoo that leaves a light linger and selected the green apple - I've been getting complime…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Why I Blog

Years before I had an instagram account I had a Yelp account and I must admit that my very first review was a terrible 1 star review. While I think honest good and bad experiences are valuable on review sites I realized that's not the person I wanted to be. Instead of only putting negative thoughts into the world I challenged myself that for every negative review to take the time to write five positive reviews. Soon I found myself gushing over businesses I love and writing reviews of businesses I was trying for the first time. Within a few months I was invited to join the Elite squad - now I  have over 250 reviews and have reached gold elite status - this means I've been on the squad for five years. As much as I enjoy sharing reviews I enjoy reading them. I'm a planner and researcher by nature so before I go anywhere I want to know as much as possible. For example, when we go out to California we're going to have tea at the Hello Kitty Grand Café - I have read every …

This is Us

Y’all this year I was so excited for our anniversary activity - the 2nd anniversary traditional gift is cotton and there was a cotton field nearby. The website said “mid October” would be the perfect time for pictures so I booked a session for our anniversary weekend on the 21st. We stop by the field the day before to check it out and it was all gone. Even though no harvest date was listed on the website a week earlier it had since been updated that the cotton was harvested that Friday – seriously, they couldn’t have given one more weekend for photos, grr! All the other cotton fields were too far away so I cried how our anniversary was ruined. We wound up moving photos to the same spot where we took our wedding photos and brought along the dogs to get our family Christmas card photo. This session did not go as well as I would have liked – Because I didn’t plan to originally have the dogs sweetie was not freshly groomed. My brand new sweater got snagged by one of the dogs getting in and…

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…
