I’ve FINALLY gotten the time to put together this little gem for you guys! I know it’s be long anticipated and I’m sorry it took me so long. Back in September, I started what I’m calling my room by room makeover on a major budget. Keith and I have been in our house for a little over a year and basically just used the items that we already had when we moved from our little rental in Baton Rouge. It was time to show our house a little TLC. Since our budget it tight, it’s been a slow road trying to get things done around here, but it’s so worth the wait!
The first project I tackled was our Guest Room. You guys got a sneak peak in the video about the new mattress that we got in the post. This room was a mess. I had this gorgeous bed already (I’ll link something similar but it was designed by me and custom made by my uncle) but the other pieces were leftover from college apartments and things we desperately needed to get rid of. I knew I wanted to create a FUN space with little cute details that was super comfortable and hotel-like for our guests! Here is the final product. I couldn’t be more pleased!
Happy Thursday, Friends! It is a much happier day today than it has been the past few days. I’ve been feeling down this week. A few things haven’t gone my way and I HATE changing my plans. It sends me into a downward spiral and takes me a few days to pull myself (or ask for help) out of it. I’ve been feeling a bit homesick and basically having an emotional, hormonal pity party. I would love to say that I’m a happy, peppy person 24/7, 365, but I’m not (as I’m sure my family would love to attest to). There are days, weeks, and even seasons where I find myself in the lows more than the highs.
I know I’m not alone in this feeling and that there are many women (and men) who have trouble seeing the light at the end of the tunnel somedays. Realizing that it’s ok to feel down is the first real step in feeling better. I have to tell myself that it’s ok that I’m not super happy all the time as long as I’m not wallowing in self-pity and bringing down everyone else as I spiral into the depths of despair.
So what do I do to pull myself out of the funk? I’ll tell you! Just keep on reading! HINT: One of the first things I do is put on a cute outfit (like this adorable top from Zaful) and go somewhere!
I’m a SUCKER for classic tailored styles that have been updated with a bit of edge. Not to mention, I could wear white 24/7, 365. That’s why I’m head over heels for this new take on a classic shirtdress from Zaful. Check it out!
I’ve been soooo excited to share this post with you guys. We’ve been working on a guest room makeover and knew that getting a new mattress was priority #1. I am so excited to be working with Nectar Sleep to talk about the EASIEST way try out a new mattress for a fraction of mattress showroom prices. Check out the video below hear all about what we think of our new mattress.

I’m only 25 and (thank goodness) my skin is still healthy and for the most part, wrinkle free. But sooner than I think, I’ll be waking up 10 years from now with skin that’s been through more life. While I know that wrinkles are part of who you are and show where you’ve been, I certainly would like my future skin to healthy no matter what. That’s why, at 25 years old, I’ve decided to start a full skin care routine with anti-aging benefits! And who better to turn to than the queen of skincare herself, Colleen Rothschild. I’ve been using this routine for several weeks now and am so excited to share my experience with you guys so that you can get a head start on skin care as well.
