Live Colorfully at The Greenbrier Resort

the greenbrier resort pictures

If you follow me on instagram, then you might remember a little girl’s trip I took with my momma to visit the gorgeous Greenbrier Resort earlier this year. From the magic of Dorothy Draper’s strikingly colorful, traditional interior style to the historical traditions rooted in Southern charm, not to mention the more-than 55 activities on the 11,000 acre property, if the The Greenbrier doesn’t already top your must-visit list, you’ll be adding it very soon! I already shared a peek at one of my fave rooms at The Greenbrier and the stunning outdoor pool here on the blog, but today I’m SO excited to finally share my full review of America’s Resort (and you’ll see why it took me so long – there are so many pictures!!).

Click through giant round- up of photos of the breath-taking resort and my recommendations of things to see, eat, and do while visiting The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

PS – don’t forget, you can get a FREE room upgrade when you book your stay at The Greenbrier with code VANDI.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide + $1,000 Giveaway

 

nordstrom anniversary sale 2017Happy Monday friends! You may or may not know that the BIGGEST shopping event of the year is just around the corner. That’s right, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts this Thursday, July 13th for all Nordstrom Card holders (if you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you should get one for this reason alone! Apply here!), and is open to everyone Friday, July 21st, so mark your calendars! If you’re not familiar with the annual sale, you’re probably wondering…

Why should I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unlike ordinary sales because the mark downs are on brand new fall and winter items! You’ll find discounts of up to 40% off on the season’s newest boots, jackets, sweaters and more. As difficult as it may be to purchase boots in the heat of July, you’ll be thanking yourself in September because you won’t find prices on fall must-haves like this again until Black Friday. In case you get overwhelmed by all the goodness happening in the N Sale, I’ll be posting the BEST finds daily on my instagram and here on the blog, so stay tuned!! To make it easy to keep up with all my Nordstrom Sale posts, you can simply click here to see them all!

Click on the read more button below to get a sneak peek at what will be on sale this year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, the best finds I found in last year’s sale, and enter for a chance to WIN a $1,000 giftcard to Nordstrom just in time to shop the sale!

Farmhouse Living With MacKenzie-Childs

mackenzie-childs-farmhouseThere are those brands that we wear or have in our home simply because we like the way they look, and there are those that do just a little more in our lives. They tell a story, evoke our senses, and inspire the very way we live our lives. I’ve long known that MacKenzie-Childs falls in the latter of those categories, and earlier this month, I got to find out why for myself.

Nestled atop rolling fields of hay and blossoming gardens sits the charming MacKenzie-Childs farmhouse, a Victorian-style house that’s so picturesque, it feels as though a Virginia Lee Burton illustration from a children’s book has come to life before your eyes. In the quaint, historical town of Aurora, New York, you’re a long way from Texas, but it’s almost impossible to believe you’re in the same state that’s home to the hustle and bustle of NYC.

As you look just beyond the farmhouse, amidst the nostalgic chatter of roosters cuckooing, ducklings chirping and the all-too familiar (for this Texas girl) bellowing of cattle, you’ll find a former dairy farm-restored- MacKenzie-Childs palace. This is the MacKenzie-Childs Headquarters, a whimsical, wondrous property I thought only existed in fairytales.

Keep reading to explore the magic of the Mackenzie-Childs headquarters and the brand’s home town of Aurora, New York…an experience I was so lucky to be a part of earlier this spring.

So far, I’ve revealed my colorful chic office, our entryway credenza and bar cart, our living room revamp and even talked about our new mattress in the master bedroom. You may have noticed our bedroom was a little bar eat the time, which is why I’m so excited to show you what we’ve done since then, thanks to a bedding and decor refresh with my friends at Unison Home.
