Family Photo Wall

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I want to share my take on the family photo wall.

I take a lot of pics on my cell phone,  who doesn’t? I also live in an apartment where I’m not about to put a bunch of holes in the wall to hang picture frames. I use the free prints app a lot too! I mean a lot! It’s an app that prints your pics for free you just pay shipping!

So I have all these pics laying around. Solution:

I bought these lighted strands that come with little clothes pins. I’ve found them at Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Rue 21, a bunch of places! Price? 7 bucks!  The clothes pins are metallic and some have designs. The strands light up you just add batteries.

I arranged the strands how I wanted on the wall and used the clothes pins to hang the pictures! Easy, simple, and fun!

What do you think?

I found some amazing coffee table books that I will read not just display! Also a major bowl for soup, cereal, noodles, just about anything! I love big bowls to eat out of! And lastly a new piece for my almost bar cart (inside joke see my bar cart post) and a few decorative knick knacks.

I was very happy with my finds!

Do you have any good hauls?

Lace Dresser Update

Hello and happy Sunday! You may remember but I did a post on the blog a long time ago where I did an update to my mom’s old dresser with paint and lace.

It has proven to be a very popular post even today! Well I decided to update that dresser again!

I changed the paint and the way the lace was placed this time. I also added new pulls. Check out the before and after and if you want to see the original, search for the lace dresser post to see where it all started!

Brand Spotlight: Sunglass Spot

Let talk about sunglasses! I don’t know about you but sunglasses are not only one of my favorite accessories they are also very important! Sunglasses protect your eyes and the skin around your eyes from sunlight and other harshness of the environment. The bigger the better is my motto!

Today I’m highlighting Sunglass Spot! Sunglass Spot is an internet company that sells all kinds of sunglasses and the majority of them are $5!

They sell the regular brand and a premium brand. The regular brand is $5 and the premium brand is $9.95. You can even get a monthly subscription of sunglasses! It’s a great way to try different sizes, shapes, and colors. Believe me when I say they have everything!

I live in a place that is sunny about 93% of the year and I spend as much time at the beach as possible, sunglasses are my jam!

Coffee Table Books

My favorite piece of functional and fashionable décor, the coffee table book! They come in all different sizes, colors, and subjects.

You can style coffee table books a number of ways: you can stack them, prop them up, stagger them, heck they don’t even have to go on your coffee table.

I think the reason I love them so much is because you can get coffee table books in subjects you like! They not only look good as décor but you can read them as well!

I have coffee table books on travel, fashion, makeup, designers, etc. I’ve found them in a couple of different places as well. Some I ordered from Amazon but I found lot of them at a local used book store! Prices vary but I think coffee table books are timeless and chic!

 

Glam Up Your Bathroom 3 Ways

Say it with me no ugly bathrooms! Often times our bathrooms are not thought of as a room to decorate or a room that can be fashionable and functional. Outside of coordinating towels and a cute shower curtain what are other steps you can take to give your bathroom a little more flair? I’m glad you asked! Here are three very simple ways to class up your powder room.

  1. Presentation is everything! Take certain bathroom items out of their packaging like Q-tips, cotton rounds/balls, soap, etc. and place them in jars, decorative containers, trays, etc.PhotoGrid_1518880036716
  2. Show off your fragrances. Not only it is pleasing to the eye but it’s easy to see what fragrance you want to use that day!PhotoGrid_1518879942314
  3. Roll your towels. It’s stylish and fun! Find a big basket or stack them on top of each other. Atypical ways to show off and store your towels definitely adds a little something to your bathroom. PhotoGrid_1518879700004

Bonus tip: Clear your vanity off. The less clutter on your counter top the more aesthetically pleasing and the cleaner the counter top stays.

Are you running off to glam up your bathroom?
