HOW-TO-MAKE-AN-EASY-DIY-OUTDOOR-MOVIE-SCREEN-WITH-STAND

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]

RAINBOW-YARN-CROCHET-WREATH

Wreath making is one of my favorite DIY projects! I’m proud to say I have never purchased a ready-made wreath. They always seem so pricey and I think to myself that I could totally make it myself! Every season and holiday I make something new for the front door. It’s the beginning of the fall […]

Scenes from my weekend…

For the past couple of months I have been itching to toss my mattress to the curb! Jon and I got it while we were engaged and we are about to celebrate 14 years married. Every time I lay down my side of the bed makes a lovely bing sound that makes me feel like […]

My Favorite Bedding Finds from Amazon

For the longest time the only thing I cared about when it came to my face was make up. I didn’t even care if it clean just that I liked wearing it. I will admit that I even went to bed on occasion without taking it off! Awful, I know! Then this past year I […]

My oily skin routine with products from The Ordinary!

I love all of the seasons, but I must admit that summer is a favorite of mine. I love trips to beach, eating loads of watermelon and getting to enjoy a slower pace without school schedules for the kids. Don’t forget the unlimited amounts of chilled Arnold Palmers and ice cream cones needed to beat […]

Bye Bye Summer!

Over the weekend I shared some stories wearing one of my latest leopard dresses purchases! I’m the type of girl that can’t say no to stripes, polka dots, or leopard print. My closet has quite a bit of it and my latest find has quickly become a favorite. A couple of months ago I downloaded […]

FROM-SOLD-TO-HOME-HOME-UPDATES

Doing a gut renovation on a home is quite the undertaking. I keep having the movie, The Money Pit strolling through my mind. There have been hiccups along the way that have made us need to dig into our pockets and get boring things like a new boiler and run new electrical throughout! It’s not […]

Back in March when we realized we would probably be homebound for the summer I decided to make the most out of our outdoor living areas. Our new house is still undergoing a massive renovation so, my parents have gotten to have us around for a little while longer. It’s actually been really nice to […]

Colorful Outdoor Living!

get inspired with our own home tour

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
