//blue and white planters//

Random thoughts on a sunny Saturday morning:

1. We are starting the best DIY project in our upstairs bedroom.

I found these vintage cabinets at a yard sale and we are building them into the side of the bathroom wall. The upstairs bathroom is super narrow at one point so hopefully this will give us all the extra storage.

2. In an attempt to be trendy, I bought a headband.


Just no.

3. Have you seen the pink lightbulbs that are supposed to be amazing? Have you tried them yet? They are supposed to make your skin look amazing. I’ve ordered one and I’ll report back.

4. It was an amazing week on the blog. We discussed:

5. Did you know I have a 10-minute decorating idea Facebook group you can join? I wanted to invite you because I’m going to be posting all about the new book that’s coming out in September. I’ll be going live with simple ideas and sharing the book and all the tips.

You can join it for free here.

6. We’ve been shopping for the twins’ apartments for this year at college.

They are moving into their sorority compound with apartments right next to each other. I’m brainstorming with Westleigh how to move her boutique space into her bedroom so she can continue to run her business at school.

She loves it so much and she’s doing so well.

And now?

Let’s see all the amazing finds I’ve discovered for us this week.

I was looking for bathroom inspiration for our upcoming project.

    Sooo I take it the headband was not the hit parade 🤣. Good to know. Lots of good read and lots of good things to come. Enjoy this day.

    I love the bath ideas from Courtney's blog. Especially the sink with flowers inside and the bench is really special. What is going on with pink light bulbs. That is the best idea ever, even if it isn't practical :)

    I've been making this tea recipe for a long time with one HUGE CHANGE. I use sugar free gingerale; it's just as good and now the calories are almost zero.
