Lighting Love

There are many different things that can make a room design special, but there aren’t many things that make as big of an impact as the lighting in a room. Not only does the light itself help bring in the type of mood you are trying to create, but the style of the lights can really impact the entire vibe of the room! I love looking at different types of lighting, even when I am not necessarily in the market for any new lamps or lights. I feel like they inspire me and give me an idea of what kind of trends there are in home decor at the moment.

lighting love on

When I was doing my office makeover, I got a lot of my decor for it from Lamps Plus. When I was looking for the right decor, I couldn’t help but be swept away in all of the gorgeous lighting options they offer. I even loved some so much that I saved them in my bookmarks in hopes to own them one day. Instead of hoarding all of these gorgeous lighting ideas to myself, I decided to show you them too. If I can’t enjoy them right now, someone should be able to! [Read more…]

Colorful Corner Gallery Wall

How to create a corner gallery wall on

Rentals can be no fun. After owning my own home and taking on projects to make it my own, it is hard to live somewhere that I can’t make any major changes to. However, I do appreciate not having to pay for the random repairs that have come up since living in our rental. I have been able to keep my decorating sanity with a hammer and nails and of course some Command Strips too, because heaven knows, I am obsessed with those things.

Our bedroom felt like it needed something funky that would make it feel like our own space. Of course there is the option of a traditional gallery wall, but why go traditional, when there is a corner just begging to turn into something more?

Finding Confidence in a Career and GIVEAWAY

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ANN INC.. All opinions are 100% mine.

Finding the right career can be quite the adventure. Althought the job you got when you first turned 16 probably isn’t the job you wanted when you grew up, that job helped develop your character in some way.

My first job was working at my grandpa’s butcher shop. Not exactly what I had in mind when I thought of what career I wanted as an adult! Although it wasn’t job I wanted for the rest of my life, I was able to learn a lot of very valuable things from that job, besides different cuts of meat. I learned what it meant to put in a full day of work. I learned what it meant to work together to get through a tough day. I learned how to interact with customers that were complete strangers. They were all characteristics that would stay with me for my lifetime.

Now that I am an adult, I can look back at that first job and really appreciate all of the growth that I got from starting there. I appreciate the hard work I saw my grandparents put in at their business every single day and knew that I wanted to be able to find something in my life that I was as passionate about as they were about their business.

Do More Knowing Your Child is Safe

Ever since writing my post about my daughter’s seizures, I have had a lot of reader questions and comments about what her seizures are like and what I do to make sure that she is safe. Honestly, it is hard. I can’t be everywhere all of the time. It is a tough transition to make, after having her be a sweet baby who just wants to stay by me to a crazy toddler who wants to be everywhere, all of the time.

Something that has changed since knowing about her seizures has been my sleeping habits. They are terrible. I am a naturally a night owl, but have been trying to wake up early to be able to get some work done before my daughter wakes up. The main problem has been that I haven’t been able to go to sleep as early I wished I could because I feel like I need to stay awake until my daughter has fallen asleep. The other problem with my sleeping habits is that I wake up several times a night and worry that she has hit her head or something and have to check on her at night. This makes for a very tired mom in the morning when it is time to wake up because I have gotten a very small amount of sleep.

Thank goodness for the Levana Keera Video Monitor! It has literally changed my life! I have had such a sense of relief knowing that I can watch my daughter on the monitor, instead of having to get up and make sure everything is alright.

Stress-Free Holiday Tips

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SimplyHealthy #CollectiveBias

The holiday season is upon us. As enjoyable as the holidays are, they can also bring a lot of unnecessary stress. I don’t know about you, but when I am stressed out, I freak out. I pretty much have a melt down when I finally get to the point that I feel so stressed that I might explode. Between holiday decor, gifts, parties, food, and winter driving conditions, I start feeling completely overwhelmed. I have learned over the years that it is important to be prepared before too much holiday craziness comes into my life. I am excited to share a few of my stress-free holiday tips.

Meaningful Gifts

When you sit back and think about last Christmas, can you remember what you got? Can you remember what gifts you gave? I sure can’t! Not that I am saying that the gifts I gave and received weren’t great, but they didn’t have a lasting impact on my life. It kind of made me sad. Maybe I don’t remember because I was too busy trying to keep the wrapping paper garbage under control, or maybe I was distracted by social media, but I don’t remember much about last Christmas. I decided I wanted to make things different this year. I want to be able to have more sentimental value to this Christmas because this truly is a special time of year and it should be cherished.

Fighting off a cold as a mom

I felt the magic of swiss herbs in Ricola Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs

Mom’s shouldn’t be allowed to get sick. It just seems unfair to get sick when you have so many things that need to get done in order to keep your family functioning properly. Unfortunately, you can’t take a day off as a mom to heal. That’s why it is so important to start fighting a cold when the symptoms first start making an appearance.

Fighting a cold as a mom on #swissherbs

Since I can’t take an entire day off to get myself feeling better, I make sure to keep a few things on hand so that I can start the healing process as soon as I start feeling the first symptoms. All of the items I keep on hand are things that are great for busy moms because they don’t require you completely stop your routine. [Read more…]
