Hey, guys!!! I'm really excited to share my newest progress report with you... my closet! It's finally starting to feel really good. It's both functional and inspiring. But first, a walk down ole memory lane– This is the "dressing room" inside of our master bathroom space. When we first viewed the house, it was carpeted and the walls were a little bit different. We expanded the wall you see to... Continue reading

Nothing makes me want to print out my summer vacation photos like some palm leaf scrapbook paper and acrylic pineapple cutouts! This month's Messy Box has a tropical, retro vibe with vintage colors and so many great patterns to mix and match. Since we just got back from our Florida vacation, this was the perfect set of papers and embellishments to make a few pages. I could use this palm... Continue reading

I really struggled with what to call this. It's SO good that I didn't want to scare anyone off with the name, but I also wanted to describe it as accurately as I could because you can't taste things through a computer screen. Here were the other contenders: vegan crunchy rolls plant-based tempura rolls fried plantain sushi yes-this-is-weird-but-please-give-it-a-try sushi I know. I should have gone with that last one. What... Continue reading

Getting five people groomed and out the door on time is no simple task whether you've got one tiny shared bathroom (our last rental) or three bathrooms on two floors (our current rental). It can be just as frustrating in the evenings when the kids can't remember which bathroom they left their favorite hairbrush in or why their toothpaste is missing AGAIN. I decided to take advantage of one of... Continue reading

If you have a craft space in your house (or a work room of any sort), chances are that you are making use of a good old fashioned pegboard to keep your supplies organized. Pegboards can be so helpful, right? The only downside to a pegboard is that sometimes they can feel a little unfinished or industrial, and that might not be the vibe you are going for in your...

Sometimes I truly feel like I am living in an SNL sketch about bloggers. Like, when we were driving to Target, and I literally screamed because I saw this amazing A-frame pink and purple flower shop. "STOP THE CAR!" What can I say, we love our pink walls. I am zero percent ashamed. Elsie's Wearing: Pink sunnies/Oui Fresh, Chambray Top/Madewell, Pink Overalls/ASOS, Bag/Oui Fresh, Shoes/Swedish Hasbeens, Palm Springs Bracelet and... Continue reading

Chapsticks, lipstick bullets, liquid lipsticks, gloss... I'm happy to add any of it to my mildly embarrassing collection. ;) As someone who really enjoys the process of makeup and getting ready, something I've come to learn is that how you care for your skin each day is one of the most important aspects of a beauty routine. Having a regular skin care routine means all the difference in how your... Continue reading
