TJ Maxx Home Finds

July 1, 2017

Guys, we finally got our new media console delivered! Stay tuned for photos - it's still a work in progress, but I am loving how it is coming together. Now that we have it, we still have a blank wall to the left of it that I'm figuring out what to fill with. I'm thinking two small stools/poufs with a decorative ladder, or a small accent chair with an ottoman. Still not sure, but I have to say that it's actually really hard to come across small stools/ottomans. There is a lot out there, but I'm finding it difficult to narrow down options. While browsing today, I came across SO many items at TJ Maxx that I am loving so I decided to share them all with you. You all know how TJ Maxx/Homegoods/Marshalls all have a home section, and they're all limited quantities. So if you happen to like any of these items, definitely check to see if they're still available! Many of these items are JUST like ones from retailers that are much higher in price point. Which items are your favorite?

Easy Home Updates for Summer

June 25, 2017

Hey everyone! It's been a full month since my last post. If I really want to stay on top of this blog thing, I really should post more, huh? Well, one of THE most amazing things has happened this month - I'm engaged! So naturally I'm pretty much non-stop thinking about what our wedding plans will be and believe me, I have a lot of ideas :) I will keep you posted on that, but in the meantime I've put together ways to update your home for summer. I love introducing more greenery, lightening up my bedding, and switching out candles for more summery scents. What are your go-to summer home updates??


1 / summer candle / white company
The White Company just opened by my job, and when I checked it out I fell in love. I LOVE their candles like this summer scent one and they also have a lavender one that is amazing.

2 / organic washed linen sheet sets / west elm
I love switching out my sheet sets to something lighter and more breathable - in the summer and winter, too. Something like a washed cotton or linen will have a lighter feel and keep you cooler at night.




3 / eva tassel + kyoto pillow covers / serena + lily
One thing is for sure - I love pillows. I think it's great to use lighter or darker neutrals for your main pillows so you have more versatility to mix in others when the seasons change.



4 / white stone terrarium / west elm
I absolutely love this terrarium collection! I have one that has the natural wood as the base. Each one is handmade and the glass is actually burned and then melted onto the wood. I would recommend going to a west elm if you can to pick yours in person like I did. 




5 / multi colored dish towels / anthropologie
Switching up your dishtowels in the kitchen is a small, fun way to get in the summer spirit.




6 / striped bath mat / target 
Changing out your bath accessories like your bath mat, towels and shower curtain is also another small, fun way to bring summer into your home.

7 / favorite fruit pot / anthropologie
I love how whimsical these planters are! Perfect for summer.

Anthropologie Sale Favorites

May 24, 2017

Hi guys! Things have been pretty busy with family birthdays and other events going on and we are still waiting on our Anthropologie media console but I am so excited to get it soon! I'm still looking for other pieces to complete our space, and I may be browsing a few places this MDW for the promotions going on. In the meantime, here are some of my favorites that are on sale right now.. of course from their home department.. from napkins to bedding to furniture. By the way, that media console is a version of the one we got but shorter and a black pattern. The all natural one is sold out but I still am loving the contrast of this one. I just love how unique they are and that they are solid wood. Also, PLEASE let me know if there are any topics that you would like to see me post about and I will plan to do so!

PS: If you're a member at Anthro, they just launched an Anthroperks for members that include free shipping on all orders $150+. I don't know if that is a huge perk but shopping there does add up so maybe it makes sense. Enjoy :)
