I am a firm believer that there is something to celebrate everyday!

It’s that time! You have all you need for your little one, but there is one person left to greet for the new year – your teacher! A fun fact about me is that I have a minor in education! I am a teacher at heart and have always held a special place for teachers […]

Growing up I always loved Mother’s Day because I got to celebrate my best friend. Whether you are a mom or love and adore a mom I’ve put together a short list of a few things I love that a wonderful woman (maybe you) in your life might love as well. Ginger Jars: How beautiful […]

We had so much fun sharing our You’ve Been Pinched baskets for St. Patrick’s Day that we thought it would be so fun to do a Boo bucket for Halloween! Let’s go! Truth be told I grabbed all of this from Target and have linked as many things as I could HERE, but have also […]

It’s that time of year! Engagements are in full swing and fall weddings are right around the corner. With a new ring, name and new house comes new opportunities to host your friends and family, as well as create new traditions. I joined forces with one of my favorite stores, Pottery Barn, to share a […]

I’m hesitant to even call this post a gift guide, but alas here we are! The truth is these items I have and love, or are on my very own list! I asked a series of questions to Instagram and here are the most requested ideas all summed up! ACCESSORIESWhat mom loves accessories? Whether its […]

I can’t believe 2021 is almost a quarter of the way over and that Easter is almost here! If you caught my LIKEtoKNOW.it post you know that todays Easter Brunch blog post is going to be three parts! When I asked what would be helpful for you all this Easter season a few of your […]

It’s my first official “Makeup Monday” on my new blog and since Easter is a few weeks away I thought it would be fun to talk clean beauty and self care for the ladies in your life! Who says an Easter basket has to be an actual basket? I am a firm believer that if […]

Yes, we’re talking about the kind of pinch you get when you don’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day! Was anyone else scared for their mom or dad to wake them up on St. Patty’s Day morning with a “pinch” for lack of dawning the color green? Have no fear, todays post is full of […]

We love a good themed cake, and when it is from Buttercup Houston it’s not only as perfectly themed as it is scrumptious! This THIR-TEE-FOURTH PAR-TEE was a low key day for a group of guys on the links, followed by a casual lunch. Custom cocktail napkins, great linens and green arrangements fit for the […]

It’s safe to say Christmas is our favorite time of year. Whether it be decorating our clients homes, or helping our workshop attendees create meaningful moments for their own guests, we love the holidays! It was so fun to work with a talented group of creatives to bring our Houston workshop to life! We loved […]

Before I share all of the goodness below, I have to say how truly blessed I am to have amazing women in my life to shower sweet baby Frederick. I mean look at these ladies, each of which I am eternally grateful for. These ladies pulled out all of the stops, starting with these adorable […]

As I sit here ready to write, to fill in the blanks of the past few weeks that I have been MIA, I find myself with writers block. So much has happened, but it’s like I don’t know where to start. I guess you could say I have been on a type on honeymoon. No, […]

On my calendar for today I had to remind you all to continue voting throughout the weekend. My company, Christina Leigh Events, is up for Best Wedding Planner in Oklahoma and Best New Wedding Planner in Texas, but on a day like today taking two seconds to vote seems irrelevant. Let’s face it, there are […]

I don’t know about you but I love that people are getting away from always pairing the stereotypical Christmas colors of red and green together. Don’t get me wrong I love red and green, but I love that the two colors can stand alone. If I were to pick one I would definitely go with […]

Who says the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show can’t inspire a girl to more than just hitting the gym a few extra hours? The Passion segment opened and the bold, beautiful colors were perfect! (See the inspiration video here.) When angel Candice Swanepoel hit the runway in this piece that was hand embroidered in India I fell in […]

With recent news of Ralph Lauren’s Daughter, Dylan, tying the knot of course we were curious about her gown. Designed by her father, who “is said to have consulted his former protegée and grande dame of bridalwear Vera Wang on the design of the dress,” I quickly fell in love. The August issue of Vogue is not […]
