By now you probably have seen *these* chairs all over Instagram and Pinterest, the Togo sofa by Ligne Roset. I discovered them last year and immediately pinned them thinking they would be a completely unattainable price and that I would never actually get the dream sofa. Fast forward to this past summer when I was scrolling on Pinterest and found a picture of what I thought was an original and clicked through the link and it took me to a website called Eternity Modern. If you are a Pinterest connoisseur, you know the high that is finding a piece you've pinned on Pinterest for so long, I was hooked. 


When I say I looked at this sofa everyday, I mean I looked at it every single day. I had found the popular reproduction, in an inspired, more cost efficient way... the Momo Sofa. At this point I had already purchased a couch so I decided the solution would be to purchase the Fireside Chairs to use as accent chairs in my living room. I am now an owner of two Fireside Chairs from Eternity Modern, I'm obsessed and do not regret them for a minute, however I have to say they are my most asked about piece in my home, so I figured I'd take the time to answer each individual question I frequently get. 


Just to be transparent, one Fireside chair was sent to me but as you know, I have two! I purchased the other one on my own. All thoughts on the chairs are my own. No one's telling me to say/not to say. We are an open book here on, Sarah Belle Elizabeth.



Is it basically an adult bean bag?

This is literally my most asked question in regards to these chairs and I totally get why. It looks too good to be true, but no it's actually nothing like a bean bag. While the chair doesn't have a lot of structural support like wood legs, arm rests or anything like that, it still keeps its structure when you sit in the chair because of the 3 layers of polyether foam. The only thing I can compare it to is if you grew up in the 90's, those gamer chairs you brother probably had that sits on the floor, with back support so they can be closer to the TV... but way cooler.

Is it comfortable?

100%. I sit in them every single day and to be honest, Cody wasn't sold on the concept of the chairs until he sat in them. He didn't understand how they could be comfortable but he agrees that they are way better than all the accent chairs we sat in before ordering these. And for those people who have small dogs like me, your dog will appreciate them. It's Miller's favorite spot for a midday snooze.

How long did it take to arrive from the day you ordered it?

With COVID restrictions in factories and warehouses, delivery these days are a little longer than normal. You see this when buying furniture from anywhere, things take a while. Eternity Modern says on their site for any custom piece, their lead time is 12-16 weeks. At the time I ordered they were 8-12 weeks. So I ordered at the beginning of August and received them late October/early November.




What fabric and color did you get?

So the day I found Eternity Modern I ordered fabric samples because I knew I just had to have one of these chairs and the sooner I decided on a color, the better. I ordered samples in Velvet Ecru Beige, Nettle Olive and Ginger Cider. I was a little worried about color transfer so I eliminated the lighter shade but then it was between 2 shades that are very similar, the only difference is the Ginger obviously has more orange in it.  I ended up going with the Olive because I wanted to bring in a little more green since we have an open concept and our kitchen cabinets are olive! 

Is it worth it?

I'm trying to pick more quality pieces for my house since we are here for atleast 5 years and I can say that I have 0 regrets about my decision! Totally worth it. My mom is a big custom furniture feen and she told me the price was great for what I was getting, so I trust her!

Why the Momo instead of the Togo?

As cool as it would be to own a Ligne Roset piece, it is just a little unrealistic price for me right now. Another thing I loved about the Momo as opposed to the Togo is unless you special order the Togo from the designer, you have to buy the couch vintage or used. When you order the Momo from Eternity Modern, it's a brand new couch, a reproduction, you have more creative freedom when it comes to colors and fabrics and the best part, it's shipped out of the US so you don't have to pay a big price for shipping. Mine shipped free AND I got to use the first time customer discount when I ordered it. All orders over 1k get free shipping :)


Is this year 4 of using the same blog picture for the same annual blog post? Judge me if you will but it's still the cutest picture for any amazon gift guide I've ever seen. Check out my previous amazon gift guides here if you need more ideas!


Great news, I have the perfect gift for anyone doing a white elephant this year because it's proven to be my favorite thing throughout the years. You need a brumate and everyone on your list who consumes alcohol needs a brumate. They are the greatest of all time.



Another great thing I forgot to put in these were the my iconic tie dye onesies for the woman in your life who loves a work from home comfy fit. Check them out, it's the softest thing in the entire world. I got mine in a medium and have 0 regrets in life with it.



Long matchstick cloche $55: I have these in the large size and the smaller size and I personally love them. I think they are a statement for the person who loves home decor.

Jonathan Adler Puzzle $24.28: It's no secret that I am going through something with Jonathan Adler right now so with quarantine, I feel like puzzles are a no brainer right now so this is a safe gift for anyone who loves a vibe.


Jonathan Adler Canister $121: I collect these canisters and whenever I link them on my stories, you guys love them as much as me. 


Boy Smells Candle $36: Boy Smells Candles are a vibe. That's all I gotta say.


Sexy AF Wine Glasses $47.99: I feel like every blogger has these kind of wine glasses and I am not classy enough for sexy af wine glasses, but if the person you are buying for is a classy bitch, then get them these.


Faux fur tote $18.99: 2020 the year of the faux fur tote. Iconic. Not mad about it.


Herringbone chain necklace $64: I have this necklace and I freaking love how chunky it is. I bought one from Miranda Frye months ago but I wanted another one at a different length to layer. I wear it in the shower and its still gold so it's clearly great quality!


Chunky gold/silver ring $10: You know I love me some chunky rings, I bought the gold and silver ones to wear as pinky rings. Plus they are cheap af!


Croissant Ring $13.99: Another trend we will be taking into 2021 is the croissant ring. I swear I see these daily on Instagram, plus they are so cute!


Chunky rope necklace $81: This is a necklace I really really want, hey Cody if you're reading this and wanting one more present for me, here's a hint. BUY ME THIS! But in all seriousness, I love how chunky this one is, it's nothing like I have but it's still very traditional. Perfect for a jewelry lover.


Bottega Padded Cassette dupe $24.99: I am obsessed with the Bottega bags but I will tell you that my wallet is not obsessed with them. I also just think it's kinda silly because it's such a trendy bag and theres so many dupes on the market that you might as well just find a damn good dupe and save you some coin. This one comes in multiple colors and it's super cute!


Leona Platform Dr. Martens: Get your girl these Dr. Martens and thank me later. They are SO cool and they have been my favorite show for 2 years now.


Fuzzy slippers $24: We stan a good slipper moment. Such a classic gift, no one can argue that it's not a good gift.


Tie Dye Onesie $28.99: I talked about these earlier, I can't imagine life without mine. So often I get out of the shower and dont want to lounge around in a robe so I literally lounge around in this all day. It's amazing. Thank me later.


Revlon One Step Blowout Brush $38: If you dont have one yet. get one. Curtain bangs, blow outs, you need it.


Chi Spin and Curl $74: This tool just looks cool af to be honest.




Dr. Martens $154: Cody LOVES his Dr. Martens and said he wishes he had gotten them sooner (aka he wishes probably that I had bought them for him for Christmas last year when I originally wanted to.) He say's he loves that they keep his feet warm because all he ever usually wears are sneakers.


Soft Robe $49: Again such a safe present to get the man in your life. Plus how luxe does that one look?


Calvin Klein Boxer Briefs $29.99: BOXER BRIEFS ARE THE BEST. I wouldn't know from my personal experience of wearing them but is it TMI to tell you that Cody loves them? Idk. Anyway, get boujee underwear for your man.


Calvin Klein Sweatpants $42: Again with the WOH situation, perfect for the man who is working from home for the start of the year. Comfort and cute.


Pizza Box Sock Set $25: This has made it on the list yet again. I just think the presentation is 10/10 and it makes the perfect stocking stuffer. I got them for Cody a few years ago and unfortunately cant buy it again but still, so good.


Fisherman Beanie Duo $19.99: Cody wears his fisherman beanies from Amazon every single damn day.


Loafer Slipper $32: Yet another practical present that no one can be not happy with. Great price point and reviews.


Smell My Nuts Candle $16.99: First off, it smells like banana bread which is delicious. Next thing, all men are immature (sorry not sorry) and they will think the label is funny af.


Ninja Blender $79: Unisex gift but buy it for your man and just say it's for them but really it's a gift for you. Thank me later.


French Press $32: Men love a sexy French press. Especially when it's matte black.


Waterproof Black Playing Cards $10.99: I genuinely have never seen a sexier stack of playing cards but the fact that these are black AND waterproof proves that they are must have for any stocking stuffer. 


Over-Rated-Adult Party Game $19.99: I bought this for a white elephant and it's actually by the same people who made What Do You Meme? Why do men love these kinds of games so much? 


Jenga Drinking Game $24.99: Or you could make your own. But if you're lazy like me, here's the easiest solution.


Nintendo Switch $325: Okay if you don't have a Nintendo Switch yet or your man doesn't have one yet, they need one. We love our switch. It got us through the first quarantine and we are ready to love on it when it gets us through the next few months. 


Frame TV $550: Hear me out... a present that you gift your boyfriend or husband but yet again, it's a gift for you. DUH!

 Hello friends! I am back home from my weekend trip to Asheville, NC & I am ready to spill the tea on everything and anything I did in those 48 hours. When I first booked this trip I asked for your recommendations on Instagram, I received up to 1000 (wtf!!!) recommendations so I compiled a list of the things I got recommended the most and found the most interesting & helpful at the end of the post for anyone who wanted more recommendations than just what I did in my 48 hours.


Asheville is about a 4.5 hour car ride from Nashville so we left first thing in the morning and got in just in time to check into our Airbnb. From what I've seen Airbnb is the way to go when you stay in Asheville because the prices for the hotels remind me of something you'd see in a very touristy city similar to Nashville. Here's the exact Airbnb I stayed in, it was fine, did the job! I would love to stay in one of the cute hotels downtown sometime but I loved the location we were in about 10 minutes north of downtown. Great if you have a car.

BTW my invite code on Airbnb is here if you want up to $50 off your first Airbnb booking!



After getting settled in we decided to go scout photo locations before heading to some breweries downtown. I had gotten a bunch of recommendations to drive along Blue Ridge Parkway so we just started driving to see the beautiful colors of fall. I knew when I booked the trip that it would be prime fall colors because I had looked up on this site when the best weeks were. It gives an estimate of the areas and the progression of the leaves. so be sure to check that out if you're traveling in the fall. It was a stunning drive. One that we made multiple times during our short stay.



  Cody is a big brewery guy so obviously checking out breweries was a must when we were visiting and most of them are dog friendly so it was a win-win. On Thursday we went to Burial and Cody had a beer or two there, I naturally had a frose (winning.) We knew we would be visiting more breweries the next day so we only stopped at this one before dropping Miller off at the airbnb and heading to dinner.



Now let me tell you about this dinner... it was, life changing. I have to be honest I didn't refer to the recommendations I received often because there were just too many places recommended, so I looked up on yelp whatever we were craving and hoped for the best. We ate at Sonora Cocina. We got the salsa tray and each got our own entree, mine being 2 chicken tacos. MY GOD IT WAS SO MUCH FOOD, BUT SO GOOD! I could not recommend this place enough. We thought we got our money's worth from the meal and you never know with touristy cities how it's going to go. Afterwards we just went home to watch the debate and sleep because we were stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey.

The next day we woke up and headed to brunch at Moose Cafe Asheville on the west side. It was about a 15 minute drive from our Airbnb and if you go, I recommend going before it gets really busy at 9am! It kind of reminded me of a Loveless Cafe or even a Cracker Barrel on steroids. The biscuits and apple butter (that tasted like fall in a butter) were amazing and I am always a happy girl when I can get some country ham with my pancakes. We were happy with our decision to eat brunch here! To be fair I've never met a biscuit I don't like.



We then were off to shoot some more content along Blue Ridge Parkway before the sun got too high up in the sky. Typical blogging trip. But thankfully when the location is as scenic as Asheville is in fall, shooting took less than 30 minutes so we really had all day to do whatever.


As I said before Cody really loves a good brewery so my friend Taylor, check her out here, gave me some recommendations for a beer lover and since we had our car, we drove right out of town to the breweries up north. Zebulon Brewing (only open on Friday and Saturday but came highly recommended) and right next to it was Eluvium. Then before dinner when we were downtown, we checked out DSSOLVR because there wasn't an outrageous line and it was so good. They had a cheesecake sour beer which I drank and surprisingly loved.


For dinner we met up with my best friend from college who was also in town visiting, a blessing truly. We ate at Tupelo Honey, which was recommended a whole bunch, rightfully so. We made reservations for dinner about a week in advanced so if you're going, I definitely recommend doing the same. They serve brunch all day which is my kind of place, but ultimately I went with the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Sandwich which was amazing. The rest of the night we just went to whatever brewery wasn't super packed with a line because COVID. Wasn't anything spectacular so I genuinely can't even remember the name.

So now for your recommendations I promised!

 Can't believe it's already that time of year for the anticipated Prime Day by Amazon. Every single year I wonder to myself if the sales are even worth checking out and I swear I wont buy anything. Every year I lie to myself because I buy plenty. I'm pretty sure toilet bowl cleaner was my favorite thing I purchased last year so this is going to be the most real list you'll probably find about Prime Day. I like the practical things. That being said, let's get into it and start looking at what Prime Day has to offer!!

Might I add that this picture on this blog post has nothing to do with anything I am talking about today, I just wanted a cute picture for the blog post... Lol. SOOOOO ANYWAY...

Also if you haven't already, please check out my new YouTube video all about my favorite Amazon Prime purchases in 2020. It will be very useful today, I promise! Check it out here.

Same as last year I am breaking it down into 3 categories: what I'm buying, what I already own and recommend and finally, what I recommend but don't own just yet!

What I am Buying

Ninja Air Fryer (save $40)

I am the last one in this world to purchase an air fryer I know but I really, really want one because I've heard they make your life so much easier and I am ready to make that commitment. I debated purchasing a $50 basic one from Target yesterday then I remembered it was Prime Day and that there would be a great one on sale. Sure enough, Ninja is one of the best brands when it comes to small appliances so this has been added to my cart.

Sandisk 64gb Memory Card (save $8.50)

It's no news to you guys that I am a content creator and your girl can never have too many memory cards because mine break, go missing, etc. Swooping 2 of these for sure!

Calvin Klein Boxer Briefs (save $23)

Okay hey guys guess what I am buying?! My fiancé underwear, he's so lucky I know. But real talk, Calvin Klein makes the best boxer briefs and they are on an amazing sale. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to stock up for Christmas.

Cordless Hair Straightener Brush (save $8)

Every year I fall victim to one of those deals where it's like, "wow I've never heard of such a thing" because it seems interesting and I want to try it. Well while I was looking at straighteners in the Prime Day sale, I found this device. I don't know much about it but I am SOLD. The reviews seem legit so I am buying it. No turning back now.

Calvin Klein Comfort Bralette (save $17)

Oh my goodness, my favorite bra is on sale. Alert the police! I am obsessed with this bra. I can't recommend it enough, its the most comfortable thing that I've ever put around my boobs. It's soft, it keeps the girls in place. I love it. 10/10. You have to try it. I am such an old lady I buy these bras now and not a single bra from VS.

Love Wellness Things (save 30% off)

I listened to a podcast recently with Lo from The Hills on it where she talked about her new brand, Love Wellness. I instantly purchased from her website because she was really knowledgable about the women's body. I take the probiotic everyday! Definitely going to try something else out because 30% is impressive.

iPhone Charger Cables (save $9)

Purchasing for the better of my relationship so my fiancé doesn't want to kill me when I ask him if he has an extra charging cable. Hehe.

Power Strip Charger (save $15)

I literally fall victim so hard to Prime Day deals, I find something that intrigues me and I read about it, then instantly need to add it to my cart. This is a power strip for all your apple products that actually charges your phone faster which your girl needs because I am using crap products to charge my phone and it charges very very very slow.

Ring Floodlight (save $60)

Yall know I love ring products well I wanted one with a floodlight on it to install right next to our driveway to help stop car break-ins. Ahh the joys of East Nashville.


What I Own & Recommend

AirPods (save $44)

Okay I wasn't expecting to see AirPods on sale but I feel like this is a deal you can't pass up. I use my AirPods all the time and yes they are worth every penny.

Core 10 Leggings (save $11)

My favorite freaking leggings to workout in! I cannot stress this deal enough. I love my Core10 leggings because they do not give you a camel toe when you're working out. This is a very important thing to me because I feel like no one talks about that when it comes to recommending workout leggings. These leggings you won't constantly have riding up. 10/10.

Revlon Brush Blow Dryer (save $30.50)

I talked about this in my favorites video so I won't go into it too deep. But this deal if 50% off so if you've been eyeing it, I say now is the time to try it!

Bondi Self Tanner (save $7.20)

A great alternative to Loving Tan with a great coconut smell. It costs you around $30 at Walgreens so this is a great deal right now!

St. Tropez Self Tanner (save $12.50)

I am pretty sure I have never seen St. Tropez on sale before so this is a sale you probably don't want to miss. St. Tropez was the first self tanner I ever used and yes it's exactly what it's cracked up to be... Amazing.

Ray-Bans (save 20%)

All Ray-Ban styles are on sale once added to cart. Check out all the styles on sale here.

The Ring Doorbell (save $60)

Okay last black Friday my mom went wild trying to find the Ring doorbell to gift my dad for Christmas (so romantic I know) and why go through that hassle when you can get it during Prime Day? It sold out during Black Friday so if it's someones list, maybe purchase it now! Y'all know I love mine!

Mini Gold Huggies (save $7)

I also already talked about my love for these earrings so I won't talk about them too much here but these are the cutest earrings for a 2nd or 3rd hole!

iPhone Tripod with Remote (save $7.40)

I actually own this one and I love it so much. A lot of the time when you purchase an iPhone tripod it will blow over with something as small as a fart. This one, while it's not as heavy duty as a normal tripod, is still a little stronger, taller and better than all the others I have wasted my money on.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (save $7)

I mean this stuff is a classic. You put it on your zits overnight and it helps making them smaller and disappear. It's such a great deal!

My Initial Necklace (save $3)

I literally wear mine like everyday. It's my favorite necklace and for $10 I swear it's amazing. I've had mine for years and it doesn't look like it, I don't understand what it's made out of but I wont ask any questions. 


What I Recommend but Don't Own

50 Face Masks (save $11)

Surgical face masks are always good to have in your car incase you forget your reusable face mask at home. I have yet to see them this cheap. What a steal!

These Square Ray-Bans (save 20% off)

All Ray-Bans are 20% off right now but this pair in particular is a pair I have been eyeing as my next purchase from RayBan. Caitlin has them and I think they are so chic looking because of the square lens. I am obsessed.

Powerbank (save $14)

Usually every prime day or Cyber Monday I try to purchase a new powerbank for traveling because I literally always misplace them. They just get so cheap around this time and I can't pass it up. I always need one!

Living Proof Shampoo (save $9)

I like to ball out on expensive shampoo sometimes, usually when I am at TJ Maxx tbh. But I have never seen the Living Proof shampoo there and this is the kind of price I'm willing to pay for a great shampoo! I've heard great things! 

Facial Steamer (save $6)

I've always wanted a facial steamer and when I was looking at this one, I didn't realize there were SO many benefits to using one. 

Heavy Duty Steamer (save $12)

God I want one of these steamers so bad. I love steaming my clothes and I lost my tiny steamer in the move. For Christmas I'm asking my mom for a new steamer but like the ones they use in stores because when I worked at Free People it was my favorite task todo. GIMME.
