2nd Annual Fall Clothing Swap

This weekend my girlfriend and I hosted our second annual fall clothing swap. We love hosting a party and when you get cute free clothes out of the deal it is a win win! Here are the pics from our swap and if you'd like to host a swap of your own you can look back at this one I hosted in Philly...I put the how to guide in that post. xoxo

The hostesses ready for the ladies to arrive!

The coffee bar...and a big bucket of La Croix.

The brunch and mimosa table.

The bags with the ladies names on them ready to be filled with their treasures.


Dresses/coats etc.

The Radio Flyer filled with shoes and boots.

Skirts and pants.

The brunch table full of yummy food the ladies brought!

And of course a good party always has party favors:)

Misc Magenta House: Living/Dining Room

Here are the pictures of our Living/Dining and Kitchen...enjoy! xoxo

I found this EAT sign for only $22 at the local Flea for Y'all!

We bought our own chandelier for the space...I am loving it!

Rustic/vintage boxes on top of the fridge for bread.

More photos of the house coming soon!

The entry porch on our newest rental.

8 times to be exact. In our 12 year marriage Ben and I have moved 8 times, in 4 different states. Probably seems like a lot to some people and nothing to others. I kind of always thought we would get married and stay put (and I hope to do that in the near future) but I wouldn't trade our adventures for anything! Moving every few years really makes me want to settle in right away by getting pictures hung, and finding a place for everything within the first month of being there so we feel comfortable there. 

Our latest move is to a darling little house with lots of natural light! We painted all the walls a light grey to make it feel more like our own. I've loved decorating this house and can't wait to show you all of the rooms! Over the next few weeks I will post each room and show you what we've done. 
(I've been posting little sneak peaks on my Instagram feed:) 

Thanks for checking into Misc Magenta even though I've been away from it for so long. Trying to raise 2 toddlers and run my Arbonne business has been keeping me busy, but I love to blog when I can and hope to do it more frequently. We have a few fun things and trips coming up as well this fall so I should have plenty to blog about for a while. xoxo
