I am so excited to (finally) finish this faux fireplace tutorial for yall. This project is simple, and it’s not fancy. I love it because it is a basic, cheap DIY that you can easily take and mold to your own style. I keep our home decorated fairly clean and simple. I like a lot of straight lines, which ends up meaning that things are often easy to build. Things are also often easy to build because I am NOT a master DIY-er or handywoman (and neither is my husband). I am going to share with you how we did it. Disclaimer: I am sure there are more “official” or “proper” ways of doing it. But that brings me back to my previous statement. I am not a master. This way worked great for us! This is for anyone else out there who wants to DIY, but needs to keep it easy!
Sometimes gift-giving stresses me out. Because let’s be honest, a good gift can leave a big—and lasting—impression on its recipient. That’s why knowing how to give a great gift is a skill that we can all stand to benefit from! Especially around the holidays. One of my favorite gifting hacks are the one, the only, gift baskets/gift boxes! Maybe it’s that little bit of OCD I have in me, but I love coming up with a theme and curating a little box of things I know someone will love. Today, I am on the blog with Tuesday Morning sharing how to create a beautiful gift box WITHOUT breaking the bank! Each of these boxes contain name-brand, high quality items at a fraction of the cost. To be specific, each basket cost under $25 for everything inside. Do you like great deals without sacrificing quality? You came to the right party. Click below to see!
I don’t know about y’all, but I am a liiiiittle obsessed with Amazon Prime. I mean.. free two-day shipping, great pricing, and literally everything I want with just a click. It’s kind of a problem. You know that “please hide packages from husband” doormat? I feel like I need that thanks to good old Amazon Prime. I can’t be alone in this, right!? Either way, I put together a list of my current Amazon faves! I hope you like it 🙂
Currently enjoying this view for a couple more days. Yes, Christmas is over. But we wait till January 1st to take down the tree! Taking down my Christmas decorations always makes me a liiiiittle sad. Christmas is so magical and it always goes by too quickly! I have loved the time we spent with our family and friends and I enjoyed every second. But when one season ends, another begins. And I am so excited for the new year and to see what 2019 brings. This morning when I checked my emails, there were sale alerts all over the place. We’ve had Black Friday sales, cyber monday sales, and “last minute” sales. And now there are after Christmas sales! In honor of those after-Christmas sales, I’ve rounded up both my favorite clothing & home buys that are on sale! Click read more to see 🙂
I think it’s pretty safe to say that Amazon rocks. We can shop from the comfort of our own couch – while drinking wine and wearing yoga pants – for literally EVERYTHING. And then it just gets delivered right to our door in those great Prime boxes. But sometimes it’s hard to weed through so many different things because Amazon does have so. many. things. Which is why it’s great! To kinda help you sift through, I’ve curated a list of my Top 20 Farmhouse Buys from Amazon for your kitchen & living room/family room. I own A LOT of these items & really put some time into choosing my very favorites! Have fun & happy Amazon searching! Click the read more button below to see 🙂
