Happy, happy Friday! Hope you are having an amazing day so far! I am looking forward to catching up on personal stuff this weekend. I have to update the budget, file taxes, read a book for work, blog, etc., etc. Not the most exciting stuff in the world, but what can a girl do?!? I have to admit, if there’s one thing I miss pre-covid is, shooting outfit photos. The hubby has yet to get behind the lens…it has been way TOO long. (I am confident he is enjoying his time away from the camera though, LOL!) Anyway, here’s to another weekend ahead. I hope it’s a fun one for you! Let’s talk light fixtures…Continue reading “Fresh Friday Finds: Home Light Fixtures”

I love how a lot of you are loving our outdoor rug as much as we do! I thought it was only appropriate to share how we are caring for it so it remains in tip-top condition.
When I first spotted this rug, I did not think about how we would take care of it. Honestly, I just assumed we would sweep it and move on with our lives. All I focused on was finding a pretty, ivory (or off-white), boho, chic rug. And if you watch my Instagram stories, you know how beautiful and perfect it was when it first arrived.Continue reading “How we are caring for our outdoor rug”

I am so excited to finally share details about our rooftop patio furniture. Man, oh man, the hell we went through to get this right. It was probably Jose’s most frustrating project. Thankfully, we sorted out every issue and finally own an outdoor set we LOVE and enjoy!Continue reading “Our Rooftop Patio Furniture Set”
As soon as we became homeowners, we started exploring a little area in Houston known as Highland Village. It was basically where I lived before the pandemic. Seriously, I would spend so much time in that area exploring all the stores. I quickly found out which stores contained most of my style, Crate and Barrel (C&B) being one of them.Continue reading “Fresh Friday Finds: Crate & Barrel Wall Art Pieces”
Happy, happy Tuesday! Hope you had a wonderful day! I am loving this week because we (the company I work for) have officially completed our fiscal year (meaning it’s like Dec. 31st) – and tomorrow is my Friday! (Thursday AND Friday are company holidays for the 4th of July!!!) So happy we cleaned our patio last weekend so we can actually kick back and enjoy it this weekend.Continue reading “Tips for Hanging Heavy Items in the Home”
It is safe to say we have learned SO much during the home decorating process. We have had complete fails and (a few) wins along the way. For the past eight months, I’ve compiled a list of lessons to share with you to save you from the pain and exhaustion, if possible. I hope these tips are helpful as you begin to decorate your home!Continue reading “Home Decorating Tips”
After sharing our home purchasing experience yesterday, it only felt natural to follow-up with a few tips for first time homebuyers. (If you missed yesterday’s blog post, I’ll link it here.)
Let’s jump straight into them!
It has been a little over eight months since we purchased the home. Eight months. And we are still working on the house, lol. The process has been a loooooong one. I told Jose the other day, my goal is to be 90% complete by the one year mark. (I want some things to be incomplete on purpose so I can continue to shop for the home whenever traveling is allowed again. I’ve always dreamt of purchasing home decor in Paris or Mexico.)Continue reading “Our Home Buying Experience”
