5 Current Home Favorites

Hi All!
With Fall just around the corner, I've been spending more time at home. I thought it would be fun to share 5 "home" items I've been loving lately!

My best friend got me a Nespresso machine for my birthday and it's life changing! I love coffee and always make a cup in the mornings using my Keurig. I would only drink lattes if I ordered them at places like Starbucks but I found them to be too sugary. The Nespresso is very similar to a Keurig in that you just put a pod in the machine, press the button and you have a fresh cup of espresso. I also love the milk frother that the machine comes with. I like to froth half & half and pour it on top of my espresso. It's so delicious! My favorite flavors are any of the ones below a level 6- the espresso pods are rated by intensity and I prefer a lighter roast. This is the perfect item for cozy fall days at home. 

My Mom bought me one of these mugs a few months back and now I'm obsessed with them. I have them in 6 different colors. I love the size of these mugs and the quality of them. They're the perfect size for a cup of coffee and as an added plus they look super cute. If you're a coffee drinker you know how important it is to have the perfect mug!

I love making cheese boards for an appetizer & part of the fun is the presentation of them! This wooden one is the perfect size to add all of the essentials. I add a hard cheese, a soft cheese, 2 types of crackers, olives, a fruit like grapes and guac with chips. That's my go-to combination. I also love to use the cheese board as a centerpiece both on my coffee table & dining area. It's perfect for a fall table!

We had been on the hunt for the perfect lamp for our living room for a while and I stumbled upon this one and thought it was perfect! I love the gold detail and the fun edison light bulb. It's the perfect lamp to place near a chair, couch, or desk as it angles down. 

I love this pillow! I think it's such a fun way to add a personal touch to your home without being over the top. This would make a great housewarming gift! You can get them personalized with any area code you want. Of course, the Vermont area code is 802 & it's in a pretty green shade. 

I hope you've enjoyed this post!


  1. I can second that a Nespresso and the Le Creuset mugs are both great, I have both too! That gold midcentury lamp is really pretty as well (:
