Christmas Decorating

2 Dec

As promised here is my Christmas decorating inside edition. We are not decorating outside this year as the outside is but I did put a BIG bow on our front door. I want to try and get a few outdoor candy canes but we will see. I hope you enjoy, most of the decor is from Hobby Lobby, a few things are from Target(tree, stuffed reindeer, sweater trees) The Felt tree my mom and I made last year for my little one. She is loving it more this year than last.

Polka dots and bows

26 Nov

Its been snowing here like crazy. But thankfully it stopped last night. The onset of this crazy cold weather that came last week, gave me the worst head cold on Friday and Saturday. But Saturday morning it was worse. I was so thankful my little one was willing to lay in bed all day saturday with me so I could rest. She is 2 and well she doesn’t sit still very long. But Netflix Kids kept her calm till nap time. By the end of the day I started feeling better. Hope Y’all have a great week filled with family and friends. Post will resume next week, starting with a Christmas decor post.

Happy Thanksgiving

I changed my outfit probably 3 times before I decided on this for church the other day. The top is a great dupe for this J.Crew top only the Navy left. I do prefer this Elle version over the J.Crew one. Plus the price point is great too.  Hope Y’all have a fantastic weekend.

XOXO

seriously obsessed with this top. When it starts to get even cooler I will be pairing it with a white blazer or even an emerald colored sweater. Im not a huge fan of high/low stuff but something about this top spoke to me.

Target Loves

19 Sep

I popped into Target the other day to check out the Philip Lim Collection. The bags were amazing I picked up the Black mini and have been using it since. While I was in there I couldn’t help but notice some amazing pieces they have out for Fall. I am in love with several pieces and wanted to share with you. If you cant tell I am loving the faux leather detailing at the moment. I love how it toughens up feminine pieces.

4th of July Outfit ideas

28 Jun

Here are a few ideas on what you could possibly wear on the 4th.

BBQ-  I would keep it simple and light. breathable fabrics are best for outdoor activities. especially since it is HOT right now.

Bathroom makeover

24 Jun

I want to apologize for being MIA last week with posts. I have been working diligently on our upstairs bathroom makeover. I finally finished last night and I want to show you all what I did. This post is probably going to be picture heavy so I apologize.

This is the before: Plaid wallpaper?!?!

IMG_4395 IMG_4396

 

After almost 4 days of removing the wallpaper which in some spots it didn’t want to come off, finally it was all gone well almost. Behind the mirror was some extremely old wallpaper and well it wasn’t coming off so I just left it. no one was going to see it anyways once the mirror was back up. I used DIF gel wallpaper remover the kind in the spay bottle. it says let sit 20-30 minutes which is too long after that long of time it starts to dry. I waited about 5-6 min as its easier to remove when wet. I know some people say use windex the one with ammonia, but I didn’t remember to try that till I was almost done.

Now I was ready to paint. this took about 3 hours. I had to use two coats, one was fine but was too bright, the second coat darkened it up and was the perfect shade. I used Behr Sea Foam Spray (Home Depot)

IMG_4394 IMG_4390 IMG_4393

These photos above (I made) I put on the middle of the mirror. I wanted to have them on the counter top but i didn’t like how it looked. So I decided to attach them to the mirror using Command Picture frame damage free hanging stripes.

Fish pictures I found here.

Inspiration for the rules here.

The towels are from Target, monogrammed at a local monogramming shop.
