Living Room Update…

home decor
You may already know this about me or maybe you don’t, but I have always been really into home decor. I love transforming a space into exactly how I envisioned it in my head. I also love to make small changes that amount to big results. That is what I did in our front sitting room last weekend. I started with a new rug from RUGS USA and built the room around that. I loved the previous rug we had in here but it was very hard to clean. This one brightens up the space a bit and is much easier to vacuum. After the rug, I changed out the pillows to these ones I already had from Bunglo. Changing out throw pillows is one of the easiest ways to transform a space. Next I wanted to incorporate more of the creams (from the rug) and pinks (from the throw pillows) so I just changed out the tray and added a few coffee table books with those colors in it. I also got this pink record player over Christmas so I wanted to incorporate that into the space as well. We also changed out the light fixture for one that is a bit more dramatic and I just love how it looks. Making these subtle changes with mostly things I already had around the house is the quickest, easiest and most inexpensive way to freshen up a space. Hope you love the results as much as I do!

Getting My Ironing on with Rowenta…

Processed with Snapseed.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when I see people (especially bloggers!) wearing wrinkly clothes. For one it just looks sloppy and for two, your job is to be promoting and styling these pieces so if you don’t take the time to make sure they look good, it’s like not giving 100% in your job. Am I the only one that feels that way? Maybe but I doubt it. Anyways, all of that is to say that I take my laundering and overall care of my clothing very seriously so when Rowenta reached out to try their new SteamCare Iron for their “Get Your Iron On” campaign, I was definitely on board. As a mom of two and blogger, I do at least one load of laundry every day and iron or steam multiples pieces as well. This iron is actually pretty cool and different because it has an automatic heat adjustment depending on the garment. You won’t find the 0-10, silk-linen scale because of this iron’s tri-plate technology- it will get the wrinkles out of all fabrics safely without having to make manual temperature adjustments. All in all, it’s a very smart and AFFORDABLE¬† ($69) iron that makes this busy mom-life of mine a little easier!

My Caffeine Corner…

caffeine corner

Now that I am not pregnant, I have been consuming coffee like nobody’s business. I drank it while pregnant, about a cup a day but now I am doing two cups or two lattes or a combo of the two. I don’t think I could get through the day without my Nespresso and Keurig machines. The addiction is real but I am okay with it! Whatever you have to do to get through the day, right?!

My Keurig is the K250 model and my Nespresso is the Inissia. Both are on the smaller and more compact side so they take up less space on the counter but still get the job done!
