WEEKLY ROUNDUP

WEEKLY ROUNDUP

I’m always writing out this long rants on Instagram about what we did this week, what things I switched, what I’m currently working on, searching for; what our plans are for a space and so on. Part of me worries no one probably cares, but the other part of me thinks why not make it a blog post and blurt all my thoughts out there for people who DO want to read it? So here goes our very first WEEKLY ROUNDUP.

MASTER BATHROOM

MASTER BATHROOM

I officially understand the meaning of "good things take time." This bathroom took months from start to finish but the end result was worth all the time and money spent to create it and it might be my new favorite space in the house.

I went back and forth a lot with this room design wise and my vision for it was pretty unclear. Sometimes I think I fall too deep into the Pinterest world and feel my heart tugging in several different directions.

OUR SMEG COFFEE MAKER: REVIEW

One of my favorite presents this year was my brand new beautiful Smeg Coffee Maker from my husband. I’ve been looking at Smeg products for years now and finally decided to add one to my list. Coffee is a huge part of my life and I promise I’m not just exaggerating. I was basically raised a Gilmore Girl, I average 4-8 cups a day and I decided it was time for an upgrade.

DIY MAGNOLIA GARLAND

DIY MAGNOLIA GARLAND

Magnolia trees are one of my favorites in existence. They’ve always seemed special to me, serving as backdrops in some of our favorite wedding photos and we actually got married surrounded by them. I was pretty thrilled when we found this home and it had several established ones on the property. Ever since, this has become one of our Christmas decor staples. It’s quick, affordable, easy and gorgeous. We do them indoors and out because I can’t get enough of it. I promise this will be short, sweet and painless!
