Living Room Make Over On a Budget with Target Style and H&M Home

After almost a two year hiatus the Home Decor bug has hit me again. There are sooo many things I’d love to be able to do to our home, you know like upgrading our 1950’s pink and black bathroom, but as we continue to tackle our student loans we just don’t have the additional $10K contractors are asking for to completely redo it.  We’ll see in theory we do, but I’d more rather be debt free than have a pretty bathroom to use. The first room I decided to do a mini makeover on was our living room because I…

Got into 2017 with your desk fully accessorized!

While I’ve never really been big on the whole “pimping your planner” trend I can admit that an awesome planner and an equally good notebook were key to my success this year. Using a planner took some getting used to but once I started writing out my goals for the day I slowly started to see myself getting more done and big dreams of my start to come to fruition. It’s why I’ve stuck so close to the bible verse “Write the Vision” Habbukk 2:2. When you write down your goals and dreams you can’t help but want to put…

The Disclaimer Room and Fabuloso®; A Love Story

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MiFabuloso #CollectiveBias Do you have that one room in your house that has to come with a disclaimer before you let people in? For me, it’s our gorgeous 1950’s bathroom equipped with the luxurious pink and black tile! Usually when people come over I direct them to our upstairs bathroom that has been renovated and has a calm spa feel, but sometimes people sneak past and want to use the more convient downstairs bathroom and I feel forced to explain why it still looks like…

Quick Tips to Help Refresh Your Bedroom for Spring.

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #LongLastingScent #CollectiveBias For many people, the bedroom is just a place to sleep, read a book, or maybe get away to watch a TV show in privacy. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that the Bedroom has become more than just a room I use to sleep. It’s become my own private getaway where I can go and relax and release the thoughts and stress for the day. Since I consider my bedroom to be such a sacred place I don’t even allow…

The Best Buy Wedding Registry is Something for Him and Her.

Sponsored Post  One of the most exciting things after you’ve said yes to the proposal,  and finally nailed down a date for your upcoming nuptials is the registering of the gifts. Usually, the Bride is way more excited about this than the Groom as this is when their inner Martha Stewart comes out.   So you go to big box stores or a local department store and you pick out your vases, linens, kitchen gadgets, and, of course, the fine China. You know the fine China that you’ll probably be too afraid to use and probably never will use until…

Rainy Day Chicken Noodle Soup

Everybody loves a good bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s honestly a great meal for all ages. Pair it with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich, crackers, or as the song says “with a Soda on the Side”, and you got yourself a great meal! I remember the first time I attempted to make Chicken Noodle Soup, actually now that I look back I’m surprised my husband, then boyfriend, didn’t take off running right then. Let’s just say my soup was nothing to write home about and we ended up ordering take out instead of eating the soup. I would often joke…

Why I’ll Be Sending More Thank You Notes in 2015

Have you ever sat and wondered where the time went? It seems that the days are becoming shorter and the years and coming to an end so much faster than it would in my younger days. I often wonder if my new found notice of the abruptness of time is because I’m constantly glued to some electronic device. You know, taking a selfie, writing a blog post, posting to Instagram or keeping up with the latest gossip on Facebook. Over time, I’ve come to discover that I truly miss actual conversation and that I’d rather talk on the phone instead…
