starting fresh

21 Feb

I’m finally sitting down to blog, boy have I been busy!
This little munch keeps me on my toes, especially with her 45 minute naps! During that time I try to cram in a shower and some food, so hopefully you understand why the blog has been so quiet.

For the last month I’ve been slowly changing up things in the living room. I got really sick of the yellow and sold the ottoman and bought the CB2 Peekaboo acrylic coffee table. Once it arrived I was very underwhelmed, I just wasn’t feeling it for the space and I couldn’t help but picture little Zoe bonking into it in the future.

Anyway get ready for picture overload.

obsessed with my new pillows, the striped is from etsy and the coral fretwork and navy deco are from Caitlin Wilson Textiles

You might also notice I painted the sunburst mirror gold. Doesn’t it look so much better!? Everything looks better in gold (words I live by).

I had been lusting over this brass tray for a very long time, I don’t know why I waited so long to get it because I think its absolutely stunning.

I decided to go with a more neutral ottoman this time around, it gives me more room to play with colors.

While at ikea I picked up some Ritva drapes, I love these drapes! Not only are they a great price but I love how the light shines through so beautifully.

I added grosgrain ribbon, such an easy DIY and so chic.

PS
my house is never this neat and tidy with ZERO baby toys. I had just gotten the rug and sofa cleaned so it was the perfect opportunity to take some lovely photos for you all. Just thought I’d let you know ; )

wall of love

31 Dec

Well I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
We had so much fun celebrating Zoe’s first Christmas! Zoe smiled a lot and mommy cried a lot! I couldn’t believe how emotional I was!

NEW ONE 2

stockings

Daddy took some holiday time off so we’ve gotten a couple projects done around the house, one of them being the new gallery wall.

We needed to make this one a little more baby friendly, the other one was just too low to the ground and the ikea frames were sagging, one of them even fell!

Compared to how long and hard the last one took this one was a breeze! We didn’t really have any layout planned we just started nailing them up!

I got all the white frames from Home Goods and the gold ones from Aaron Brothers.

Hope you all have a wonderful New Years! See you in 2013!!!

Happy Friday!

Here are some new lovelies I picked up this week.

I love this $15 rug I found at Home Goods. I’ve been loving navy and white lately.

Also found this chevron rug for the bathroom for $12! The colors go perfectly in here.

We finally got a West Elm near us and they were having a 15% off sale, so Monday I popped in and picked up some things for the guest bath, like this monogram hand towel.

IMG 9061

and these diamond towels as well as the shower curtain, on sale of course!

I love to find deals and use coupons any chance I get (my poor husband)

Have you scored any great deals lately?

Will you shop at a specific store just because you have a coupon? I do!

home goods trip

25 Oct

Today Zoe and I took a trip to Home Goods, she is quite the shopper. I’m so glad I finally got the hang of taking her out during the day it was a little daunting at first. Thank god for the Bjorn carrier, she falls asleep instantly while in it.

Oh how I’ve missed Home Goods and today was a great day to go as there were so many amazing goodies.

Loving this black x bench, just wish I had a place for it.

Fun cotton rugs!

Such an awesome console table.

Just saw almost this exact same throw at West Elm.

I love mirrors and could have easily taken both these home. I need a bigger house!

I didn’t leave empty handed though (that would be a crime!) I’ll share with you tomorrow the goodies I brought home.
